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. Earlier in 2016, SembCorp Marine Ltd (SGX: S51) had seen its share price fall to a level that was last seen during the days of the 2008 financial crisis. But, given the recent rebound in the stock market, the company’s shares have also rallied by roughly 30% from a 52-week low to the current price of nearly S$1.70.

Is it time to invest into SembCorp Marine? What are the risks that investors need to know about the company? My colleague Chong Ser Jing had recently taken a look at some of the important risks involved with Sembcorp Marine. Jump in here for more.

2. As I mentioned above, there’s been a rally in the stock market in recent weeks. Because of that, shares of Singapore’s banking giants –  DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05)Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) – have all jumped by over 10% since late February this year. Have investors missed the opportunity to invest in the banks or can they still be considered cheap at the moment? I’d let my fellow Fool Lawrence Nga chip in with his view on the matter.

3. The outlook for Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd (SGX: S63) in 2016 does not appear to be strong. Should investors be worried about the developments at ST Engineering? Check out what my friend and colleague Chin Hui Leong has to say about this.
