3 Things You Need To Know About the Singapore Stock Market Today

Welcome to Friday 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 weekend.

1. Mapletree Logistics Trust (SGX: M44U) is one of the largest REITs listed here in Singapore. The trust also has a unique positioning given its focus on logistics facilities.

2. Banks in Singapore have been facing some bad press lately. Given the stresses faced by many local oil and gas companies, Singapore’s banks are also feeling the heat given that the latter lends money to the former.

So, how have the banks’ recent business performances been? In here, find out some key data about the recent earnings results of DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05)Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), and United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11).

3. The attractiveness of Singapore as a REIT market appears to be growing in my view.

You can find out more about them in here and here, respectively.

Now, one of Malaysia’s largest conglomerates might be joining the crowd soon. Sime Darby Berhad (KLSE: 4197.KL) is planning a reverse takeover of the Singapore-listed shell REIT Saizen Real Estate Investment Trust (SGX: T8JU). What does this mean for investors? You can find out more in here.
