Is it time to sell off these stocks?

Investors’ favorite stocks have all along been defensive stocks which pay steady dividends. These are also stocks which provide everyday services. So what are these favorite stocks? Well, it has to be the three telco stocks: Singtel, StarHub and M1 stock. Looking at the stock chart of these three stocks, we can note that these three stocks have been recording highs such that a top has been formed for them.

Should Investors start to sell these stocks now?

When news first broke in the world of the Zika virus, I read of what happened in Brazil and was afraid that Zika could come to our shores. And after a long time, news broke out last week that Zika virus found its way to Hong Kong, and I thought with Zika in such a close proximity, Singapore would likely to have similar cases (the Zika case in Hong Kong later proved to be negative).

What investors need to know about the stocks markets next?

Singapore stocks, in my opinion have been trading without much of a lead, as investors would like to know and understand what the macro trends shaping the stocks markets will be. And now, we have some sort of an inkling.

First, the much anticipated decision of the US interest rate hike. It is getting much clearer after Janet Yellen’s speech that the interest rate hike is still on the table and many analysts and stocks markets watcher believe the US will increase the interest rate at most twice by the year end. Should the interest rate rises incrementally, the effect on stocks markets will be felt incrementally; but overall, the effect on stocks will be felt. I should not elaborate here on this blog as to what these effects are since in the internet, there are so many literatures on this front.
