Latest quarterly results (Part 2)

Companies were starting to release their latest quarterly financial results. I looked at some blue-chip companies that are mainly from the STI component stocks. Some are mid-cap stocks. Most companies have 31 December as their year-end.

The table shows financial result of 6 companies.

SIA’s net profit increased by 35.6% and SIA Engineering’s net profit increased by 6.7%. In land transport space, both SMRT and SBS Transit performed positively with net profit increasing by 63.5% and 17.0% respectively. SingPost’s net profit was flat (+0.6%).
