26 July 2018 would be destiny day for SingTel share price as it will be ex-dividend day for shareholders to be entitled to the final dividend of $0.107. All eyes are on that day as shareholders brace themselves for a frightening roller-coaster ride of SingTel share price.
There had been much talks on the impending entry of the fourth telco, TPG Telecom and the emerging threats of Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO). People are concerned that these threats would demolish SingTel share price and knock it off the cliff. But to be frank, the current bearish sentiments of SingTel share price should be due to the heightened competition in overseas markets, and not Singapore market. So investors should not make a mountain out of a mole.

The year 2015 was another horror ride for shareholders as the correction was even worse – falling from a giddy high of $4.34 on 24 July 2015 to reach a mind-boggling low of $3.56 in October 2015.
This time, it would be no different for SingTel share price. In exchange for the $0.107 dividend, investors must ask themselves whether it is worthwhile to hold SingTel stocks for the long-term.
