The 30 Best Stocks In Singapore For 2018

The new year is here, and therefore, a question on your mind might be, “What stocks can I buy for 2018?”

As if to say “I heard you”, my Foolish colleague, Chong Ser Jing, came up with a list of 30 best stocks for the year using Joel Greenblatt’s Magic Formula.

The formula was made famous by his book, The Little Book That Beats The Market. The author cum investor had annual returns of 50%, before fees, from 1985 to 1994. This also means that if you had invested your money with him, it would have doubled every 1.4 years.

To go one step further and know how cheap and good the 30 stocks are, you can head here.

(Cautionary note: As mentioned here, not all 30 stocks will make you money. Diversification is key when using this strategy.)
