IT’S generally accepted that 2018 was a year that was a bit like riding the bull.
Expectations were high that it would be a good year, but what followed was a rough ride with new opportunities and challenges, depending on how you were invested in it.
That’s the stock market for you. For all the analyses and pundits at work, you can get hit by curve balls.
That said, some businesses stuck to their guns in 2018 and delivered performances that outshone the competition.
The Charger Award applies the algorithm developed by Spiking, which tracks how the whales are investing in the stock market. Together with other factors including the net income for the year and the average volume, the companies are ranked based on year to date total return.
Five winners in the following categories made the final cut: Consumer & Healthcare; Technology; Industrial & Logistics; Real Estate; and Financial Institutions.
The respective winners are: Best World International Ltd, AEM Holdings Ltd, China Sunsine Chemical Holdings Ltd, Mapletree Commercial Trust; and iFAST Corporation.
The winners were presented the handcrafted trophies created by artist Kalyan Rathore at a ceremony at Nanyang Technological University.
There were two panel discussions which generated significant thought-provoking discussions on the state of investment in Singapore, what needs to be done, and how to entice more activity here.
The Charger Award is generously supported by: Principal Sponsor OUE; Knowledge Partner Nanyang Business School of NTU; Financial PR, Spiking, Vault@268.
