Performance of STI component stocks in 2016

The Straits Times Index (STI) declined 0.07% to 2,880.76 points by end 2016. The index hardly moved in a year. But when you look at individual stocks, the story is so different. There were stocks that were up 26% and some stocks were down 24-26% at the other end.

The price changes of 30 component stocks that make up the STI are shown below.

Analysis

The 30 component stocks were split in the middle. About half of 30 stocks were positive and the other stocks were negative. That explains why the STI hardly moved for the year when we combine all stocks into one index.

The top 7 and bottom 7 stocks are listed below:
