3 Things You Need To Know About the Singapore 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. Yes! The earnings season is just getting started. The following’s our latest earnings coverage:

2. It has been a stressful time to be an investor these past few months with the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) falling by as much as 23% from a recent April-peak near the end of September. The market is up 10% or so from its September low, so some green shoots of recovery have appeared. That said, there’s no guarantee that the market wouldn’t turn for the worse – are you prepared for it if it does happen? My colleague Chong Ser Jing had recently shared some thoughts on what we can do to be better-prepared when the market crashes.

3. CEFC International Ltd (SGX: Y35) has to be one of the best – if not the best – performing stocks in Singapore over the past three months. Why? That’s because its shares are up a massive 1,200%from the start of July to yesterday. What is happening to the company to warrant such a huge jump? I’ve dug into the company recently, so check here out for more of my thoughts.
