Interesting Articles From Last Week That You Don’t Want To Miss

Good morning folks.

There are many ways to begin our week in investing. One of the few things that I do is to catch up or recap on some important news from last week. And one of the many sources of information for me, is the Fool website.

So what are some of the interesting articles from last week?

1. Firstly, Chin Hui Leong shared his views about the trends that will have significant impact on the banking industry.

One of his articles here discusses about the disruption and opportunities of e-Payments, another discussed block chain technology. If you are an investor of DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX: D05), United Overseas Bank Ltd (SGX: U11) or Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Limited (SGX: O39), you might want to learn more about these trends and the opportunities and threats that could arise.

2. Next, we will learn a useful instrument that investors can use to “enhance” their long-term investments in stocks, namely option.

In his articles here and here, Jeremy China gave us a quick introduction of option, both call and put options.

3. Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited’s View on the Oil and Gas Sector

One of the most troubled industries in Singapore in the last two years has been the oil and gas industry, with players such as Sembcorp Marine Ltd (SGX: S51) and Keppel Corporation Limited (SGX: BN4) continuing to face uncertainties, whilst others such as Swiber Holdings Limited (SGX: BGK) have gone out of business.

In his article here, Chin Hui Leong shared Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited‘s (SGX: O39) view of the industry.
