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. Keppel Corporation Limited (SGX: BN4) saw its business suffer in 2015 as a result of financial troubles at one of its major customers, the Brazilian oil & gas company Sete Brasil. Thing is, how are the rest of Keppel Corp’s customers doing? My colleague Stanley Lim had looked at Bumi Armada Bhd (KLSE: 5210.KL) earlier today to see if its business is in any sort of trouble. The company happens to be one of Keppel Corp’s key customers as well, so jump in here to find out the latest with Bumi Armada.

2. The stock market in Singapore hasn’t done too well of late with the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) currently sitting on a decline of around 20% from a 52-week high that was reached last April. Will the market ever fly again and return to its former heights? My fellow Fool David Kuo had given his take recently, so check it out here.

3. The relationship between interest rates and stock prices can be a confusing thing. Lawrence Nga, another of my fellow Fools, had given this matter some thought earlier today. Check out his take right here.
