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.
