2017 Performance of SGX Stocks In Retail Sector in Singapore
Check out the listing of SGX Stocks in retail sector, i.e. specialty retail sector and food retail sector. Though retailing sector is not my circle of interest, i scanned two listings for sharing purposes. This is to see if it is worth while looking into some defensive SGX stocks in retail sector in the midst of economical uncertainty.
I would think that the retail market in Singapore still remains challenging for both the retailers and landlords. This might be due to higher rental cost and weaker consumer demand. The whole brick and mortar retailing landscape is also disrupted with Amazon Prime service and Alibaba backed Lazada online retailing. This may lead to an interesting trend for retailers to adopt advanced vending machine technologies. Some examples are HDB vendcafe and Giant Vend Mart Tampines. Over the weekend, my family walked passed Giant Tampines Vend Mart. I was amused to know Hot Black Pepper Crab can be also served from Vending Machine though its price is not cheap, i.e. around $80 per serving.
