The three banks did well with good dividends. See my other blog post comparing the three banks.
For offshore and marine sector, quarter profits of Keppel Corp, Sembcorp Industries and Sembcorp Marine rose about 9%. They did well also.
In the telco space, only Starhub underperformed the other two.
Property developers were suffering except Keppel Land. CapitaLand suffered 45.6% drop in profit.
For public transport companies and SIA, profits took a nose-dive except for Comfort Delgro which did well. SMRT and SBS Transit continued to languish with poor performance.
For investors with these stocks, wait for dividends to be paid out. These dividend payouts are better than bank interest rates.
