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

Welcome to Wednesday 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 week.

1. The stock market’s decline has resulted in some companies having very attractive dividend yields.

My colleague Chong Ser Jing has looked into the issue recently – jump in here for more of his thoughts.

2. Singapore Telecommunications Limited‘s (SGX: Z74) share price has been flat over the past year. What is happening and what can we expect from the company in the future? Chin Hui Leong, another of my colleague, had dug into Singtel recently to see what’s in store next.

3. Public transport services provider SBS Transit Ltd’s (SGX: S61) shares, like those of Singtel, have also been flat over the last 12 months. What’s going on over there? Hui Leong has given the issue some thought as well, so you can hit the link for more.
