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. Yesterday, Ron Sim, the founder/chairman/chief executive of OSIM International Ltd (SGX: O23), had increased his bid to take the company private by raising his buyout price from S$1.32 per share to S$1.39. I’ve taken a closer look at Sim’s new offer for OSIM, so you can find out more in here.

2. Shares of Global Logistic Properties Ltd (SGX: MC0) have fallen hard over the past three years. Is it possibly a bargain now? That’s a topic I had dug into lately, so you can jump in here for more of my thoughts.

3. One key way to better understand a company is to compare it with its peers. Looking at two similar companies together can allow investors to better appreciate the pros and cons of each business. My colleague Chong Ser Jing had recently compared SATS Ltd (SGX: S58) with SIA Engineering Company Ltd (SGX: S59) to see which company might be the stronger aviation-related stock. Check it out right here.
