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. In everyday life, we may sometimes see egregious mistakes happening without anyone questioning if anything is wrong. This is something that can happen as well in the financial markets, when the prices of assets can at times overshoot reality by a wide margin. My colleague David Kuo has given this matter a deeper look recently, so check out his thoughts here.

2. Blue chip stock StarHub Ltd (SGX: CC3) is a well-known company in Singapore’s stock market. Are its shares a bargain now? That’s something I’ve dug into earlier today, so jump in here for more!

3. Humans in general, tend to suffer from the recency bias, whereby we place undue emphasis on recent events without much consideration for longer-term odds. This can sometimes cause investors to fear the stock market after a year of poor returns. But, is there anything about the stock market’s past performance that can tell us about what it’d do next? I’ve looked into more than 20 years of data from the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) to find out – you can find the conclusion here.
