How Cheap Is the Singapore Stock Market Currently?
Are you looking to invest in Singapore shares to take advantage of the volatile market conditions? Then you have to look no further. Here, we will explore two ways to find out if the Singapore stock market is cheap right now. The first method is to compare the market’s current price-to-earnings (PE) ratio to the market’s long-term average PE ratio. The second approach involves looking at the number of net-net stocks in the stock market. With that, let’s dive right in. PE valuation method Since it is difficult to get the past daily PE ratios of the Straits Times Index, the PE ratios of SPDR STI ETF (SGX: ES3) can be used as a proxy. The SPDR STI ETF is an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that tracks the fundamentals of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI). As of 16 August 2019,

5 Singapore Blue-Chip Shares with the Highest Dividend Yields
Among the blue-chips shares of the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), there are several companies that possess market-beating dividend yields. Let’s explore the top five blue-chip stocks with the tastiest yields, as of 16 August 2019. Hutchison Port Holdings Trust (SGX: NS8U) steals the top spot with a yield of close to 12%. The yield is even higher than that seen in the earlier part of this month at 9% due to the falling unit price of late. However, dividend investors should be wary about the high yield; the trust’s distribution per unit (DPU) has been plummeting for some time. In 2011, DPU stood at HK$0.377 per unit, but that has declined to just HK$0.17 in 2018. Coming in at the second spot is Singapore Press Holdings Limited (SGX: T39), or SPH for short.

Better Buy: Singapore Airlines Limited vs. SATS Ltd
The aviation sector is a fertile place for investors to hunt for investment ideas, as the growth of the travel industry is the last decade has been nothing short of astonishing. As the world becomes more globalised, and with air travel costs falling as low-cost airlines enter the space, it has never been a better time for people to travel. This trend looks set to continue into the next decade as Asia’s rising middle class starts earning sufficient salaries to allow them to afford to bring their families overseas, and in Singapore, tourism has been boosted by travelers from China, India, and Indonesia. Investors who wish to gain exposure to this lucrative industry have several choices: They can invest directly in hotels (which accommodate the tourists), in tourism asset operators (wh
