2. CapitaLand Commercial Trust (SGX: C61U) is one of the largest commercial REITs in Singapore. Here are six things the REIT’s manager shared in a recent earnings briefing that you might want to know about, courtesy of Hui Leong.

3. Banking stocks have been shunned by investors in recent months. The threat of more bad loans arising from their oil and gas clients have dampened some investors’ view on the banks.
