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 rest of the week.

1. Investors seem to have gotten over some of the pessimism surrounding Sembcorp Marine Ltd (SGX: S51) – the company’s shares have made a comfortable 35% rebound from their 52-week low price of S$1.30. But business-wise, how is Sembcorp Marine dealing with the potential bankruptcy of one of its major customers, Sete Brasil? My colleague Chin Hui Leong has explored this issue earlier today, so find out more here.

Also, what will likely happen to the company’s dividend in the future? Another of my fellow Fools, Chong Ser Jing, had dug into this recently, so jump in here for more.

2. Dairy Farm International Holdings Ltd (SGX: D01) did not have a good year in 2015. Can the company turnaround its operations in 2016? Hui Leong has taken a look at what the retailer’s doing to jump-start growth. You can check it out right here.

3. The individual investor’s greatest enemy is someone you should be very familiar with – yourself. That’s right, it’s you. Does this sound weird? Find out what Warren Buffett and Ser Jing has to say on this!
