Recap: 4 Interesting Things To Note From Last Month

Hi folks.

One of the few things that I like to do is to catch up or recap on some important news. And one of the many sources of information for me is the Motley Fool Singapore website.

Here are some interesting articles that I like from a month back.

1. First of all, my colleague Peter Stephens wrote about what the ideal holding period for an investment is here.

In this article, he looked at the pros and cons for holding stocks, both short-term and long-term. For investors who are wondering what we should do in this market that is trading at close to an all-time high, this article might give you some hints.

2. For the real estate investment trust (REIT) lovers, my colleague, Jeremy Chia, wrote an article to share three things to look out when assessing a REIT. His article can be found here.

Jeremy explained about using Funds From Operation (FFO), Debt-to-Equity ratio and Interest Coverage to analyse a REIT.

3. Next, Stanley Lim wrote about the types of value that can be found in a company. Here, he explained that there are three types of value used by great investors in Asia. If you want to know how these great investors understand value, do read this article.

4. Lastly, a number of companies released their earnings. Below are some that you might want to know about:
