Big boys targeting SingTel stock!

After suffering from heavy shelling for the past few weeks, SingTel stock recovered from multi-year low of $3.02 to climb to $3.24 on 10 July 2018. The latest technical rebound of SingTel stock must have left investors wondering if this blue chip has indeed bottomed out. Before rejoicing, it is important to note that the big boys, namely the institutional funds had been targeting SingTel stock for the past two months.

According to Singapore Exchange (SGX) Institutional Fund Flow Monthly report, the month of May saw institutional investors net sold an epic $1.10 billion worth of Singapore stocks.

I could be wrong but I do not recall the outflow of such magnitude from Singapore stock market in recent years, apart from the Great Financial Crisis in 2008. The net selling by institutional players continued through June, with institutional net selling $257 million worth of Singapore stocks.

In this article, I am going to show you how the big boys play the game and why you must avoid collision path with the big boys because there can only be one outcome.

  • To institutions, Singapore is almost considered Emerging Market, especially since its economy is so open & tied to the manufacturing/commodity economies of EM Asia.

    Hence will always have huge outflows whenever strong USD, rising Treasury rates, and other EM shocks.

  • Hi Sinkie,

    Yes, I do agree with you. Question now is: what position should retail investors take?
    Run for their lives or long-term buy and hold their equities?
