With the end of the Quarter One reporting season, how did some companies perform compared to each other? Listed below is the consolidated table of companies mentioned in my earlier blogs.

It provides information on net profit attributable to shareholders and year-on-year change between current period in 2012 against corresponding period of 2011. Dividends proposed are included.

Note:

1. All companies reported first quarter results except for SGX (third quarter results); SPH (second quarter results ended 29 Feb 2012); SIA, Singapore Post, Singapore Telecom, and SMRT (fourth quarter results).

2. All stocks are on Straits Times Index (STI) except those marked with and *.

Almost all companies improved on their quarterly results except for seven counters. SIA was the only company that made a loss.

Since the start of May, STI was declining from 2,978 points to 2,771 points at current level. This is a drop of nearly 7 per cent. If the political situation in Greece did not improve, there can be more downside risk. There is much fear at the present moment and expect more volatility.
