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

Good afternoon folks.

There are many ways to begin our week in investing. 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 from last week.

1. First of all, we will look at some of the best-performing stocks in Singapore in the last decade.

In his article here, Sudhan shared with us ten companies that have made their shareholders rich in the last decade. Then, he goes on to explain the probable reason behind the price increases. In other words, if you want to know how to choose the next best performing stock, it would be useful to read what Sudhan shared in his article.

Some of these companies mentioned are BreadTalk Group Limited (SGX: 5DA), Riverstone Holdings Limited (SGX: AP4) and Thai Beverage Public Company Limited (SGX: Y92).

2. One of the most important factors that will affect the business and stock price of companies is the interest rate. As such, it is paramount that investors understand how interest rates will impact their stock investments.

In his articles here and here, Jeremy Chia shared with us how interest rates affect a business and also the valuation of a company.

3. One of the most important traits of successful investors is that they read, a lot. Unfortunately, most investors are already overwhelmed with information and choices. Thus, if you are wondering what books you should read to become a better investor, do click here for a book recommendation article by my colleague, Jeremy Chia.

I have read all three books mentioned in the article and I highly recommend that you do so too.

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

GuocoLand Limited (SGX: F17) – click here

Micro-Mechanics (Holdings) Ltd (SGX: 5DD) – click here
