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. Thai Beverage Public Company Limited (SGX: Y92) has been one of the best-performing large caps in Singapore in the past decade. Since its listing in 2006, its shares are up by nearly 250% in price alone. How does the company actually make its money? My colleague Ong Kai Kiat recently took a look. Jump in here to find out more.

2. Singapore Telecommunications Limited  (SGX: Z74) is the largest listed company in Singapore. Yet, its size has not stopped it from generating good returns – its share price is up by 6% over the last 12 months, outperforming the nearly 3% loss delivered by the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI). What’s behind Singtel’s gain? Another of my fellow Fools Chin Hui Leong explained earlier today.

3. Saying that the oil & gas industry is struggling is an understatement. Many companies have seen their revenue and profits plummet. Sembcorp Marine Ltd (SGX: S58), one of the world’s largest oil rig builders, has not been immune. Chong Ser Jing, one of my Foolish gang, looked at Sembcorp Marine recently and did not like what he saw. Why? You’d find out right here.
