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 rest of the week.

1. The Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) will see a change in one of its constituents on 21 March 2016 when CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U) replaces Noble Group Limited (SGX: N21). How much do you know about CapitaLand Commercial Trust? My colleague Stanley Lim had taken a quick look at it today and pointed out three important things to know. Jump in here for more!

2. Stanley had also visited Australia recently. While on his trip, he actually stepped foot into an Optus store to have a first-hand feel of the telco’s service levels. For those unware, Optus is Australia’s second largest telecommunications company and is actually owned by Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74). As a result of the Optus ownership, Australia is SingTel’s largest geographical market after Singapore. For more of Stanley’s take on his Optus experience, hit here.

3. Massage chair maker OSIM International Ltd (SGX: O23) may be privatized soon. The company’s majority shareholder and chief executive, Ron Sim, has launched a takeover offer. What’s the deal all about and is it fair for the company’s minority shareholders? That’s something Stanley had dug into earlier today. Check out here for more.
