WHY the STI ETF might still be ATTRACTIVE?


STI ETF, Singapore Stocks
Dear readers, if we look at the Singapore stocks benchmark indicator STI, it is currently hovering around the 3,100 mark. The STI benchmark is made up of the top 30 companies in terms of market capitalization. If we compare the STI benchmark across a continuum, the range is from below 2,000 (corresponding to stocks markets downturns) to above 3,000. Then, if we look at the constituent stocks of STI, what can we infer? As answers, let me just cite a few examples. Golden Agriculture traded at a high of $0.80 plus before, look at its stock price now. In a similar vein, compare Sembcorp Marine stock price to its price in the heydays ($5 per share). And there are other similar blue-chip stocks trading at laggard prices now. Like Sembcorp Industries stock, Starhub and others.

Should investors buy into these three stocks now?

As we all know, the SGX reviews the constituent stocks of the STI benchmark regularly, and in the latest review, three stocks were “removed” from the index and in their places were SATS, YangZiJiang and UOL stock. The addition of these new stocks will definitely be welcomed by investors who were already vested in these stocks as the inclusion into the STI seems to boost the standing of the stocks and there is a belief that the fund managers tracking STI have to buy into these three new stocks, which can only mean more upward movement for these stocks.

I want to profit from stocks! And here is how!

Dear readers, how is your investing and trading? Let us look at the stock markets trends now. First of all, the US Federal Reserves’ decision on interest rates hike. In the FOMC meeting concluded on US Wednesday 17 Jun 2015, the Federal Reserves has indicated that it will not be raising interest rate now. Though this may be good to some investors, we have the next factor: the Greece debt talks; from what I read from the internet, there seems to be some differences between the points of views of Greece and its European counterparts. And to add to these, the world has to contend with MERS (I learnt that Germany now has its first case of MERS case). So against all these themes, how should one position one’s investments to make sense of all these market trends?
