The big gainers were DBS (+13.8%), Venture Corp (11.9%), Keppel Corp (+8.0%), SIA (+6.7%) and SemCorp Ind (+6.3%).

The big losers were HPH Trust (-15.7%), CapitaComm Trust (-9.8%), StarHub (-9.8%), and CapitaMall Trust (-8.5%).

I noted that the Real Estate Investment Trusts (Reits) were hammered down due to potential increase in higher credit costs in the future. The Telcos (Singtel and StarHub) did badly too.

SPDR STI ETF remained relatively stable thanks to the outlier performance of DBS and Venture Corp despite gloomy performances of the bottom-performing stocks.

The STI was up a mere 1.2% after losing the 6.0% gain made on 24 January 2018.
