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. The earnings season in Singapore is winding down. How have the real estate investment trusts in Singapore fared? There are nine REITs in Singapore’s market that are classified under the Retail sector and this includes CapitaLand Mall Trust (SGX: C38U) and SPH REIT (SGX: SK6U) among others. Find out how the latest financial picture for eight of these REITs look like right here.

2. I had recently learnt of an important and surprising thing about the world of investing. In the past 140 years, the US stock market has gained 10,000-fold. But, in that span of time, there have been periods of as long as 13 years in which the market has given zero returns. What does this mean for investors? Jump in here for more!

3. If you haven’t already heard, Singapore’s largest company, Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SGX: Z74), has plans to buy even more shares in two regional telcos that it already owns substantial stakes in. The two telcos are Bharti Airtel and Advanced Info Services Public Company Limited. For more on the deals and what it means for Singtel’s investors, head here.
