Top SGX movers of the week: Wilmar, ComfortDelGro, SATS
Here are the top gaining and losing STI Index stocks for the week ending 26 June 2020, based on IG data.
This week, the Straits Times Index (STI Index) fell some 1.7%, as a new wave of Covid-19 infections in the US and mainland Europe caused investors to offload equities and other speculative assets.
Of the 30 blue-chip stocks tracked by the STI, only four companies maintained a share price boost by the end of the week, with the remaining constituents staying in the red or flat.
Another key market headline this week was the Singapore general election. On Tuesday 23 June, Singapore President Halimah Yacob dissolved parliament and issued a Writ of Election. As a result, Singaporeans will vote for a new government on 10 July 2020.
