3 Things You Need To Know About the Singapore Stock Market Today

Welcome to Monday evening! Here are three things about Singapore’s stock market and investing in general that you might want to look at today and over the weekend.

1. There’s been a lot of hoo-ha over the Federal Reserve’s potential increase in interest rates. Are rising interest rates good for stocks, bad for stocks, or pretty much a non-event? This is something my colleague Chin Hui Leong has mulled over, so jump in here for more of his thoughts.

2. Singapore may be entering a technical recession soon. How will this affect Singapore’s stocks? I’ve looked into this earlier today by finding out how the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) has done in years when Singapore’s economy has shrank. Hit the link for more.

3. The local banking trio of DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) have all seen their share prices suffer double-digit declines over the past three months. But, are they cheap enough now? Stanley Lim, another colleague of mine, has dug into this question earlier today. You can find more of Stanley’s thoughts in here.
