Many readers routinely ask where they can get reliable information on stocks. In response, I always recommend to start by reading books (must-read list here!) and following financial sites and journals. While there is no lack of information for US stocks, I do have to acknowledge that there are less resources for Singapore investors who want to learn more about Mainboard/ Catalist stocks. In fact, that was one of the reasons why I started this blog in the first place.
As the community of internet-savvy investors grows, there have been an increasing number of investing sites that provide diverse and quality information. Today’s post introduces Investor-One.
Investor-One was launched in 2017, and they provide an easy way for investors to access information on SGX stocks. Built with investors in mind, the portal aims to provide readers with a holistic approach to assess companies through a wide array of information sources – news, fundamental data and fellow investors’ sentiments via social media. Investor-One is developed and maintained by ShareInvestor and supported by the Singapore Exchange.
For investors who are keen to expand their knowledge sources, this post will highlight some of Investor-One’s key features that you should check out!
Investor-One provides investors with editorial features on both SGX Mainboard and Catalist-listed companies. These articles provide a handy overview on SGX counters using financial metrics such as revenue & distributable income, net profit, management efficiency ratio, dividends, ownership, leverage ratio and consensus estimates. Some interesting reads on the portal are highlighted as follows:

Useful content on earnings and post-results announcements:
There is also timely content pertaining to current events such as:
One of Investor-One’s unique advantages are their primers on Catalist-listed stocks. Some interesting ones featured on the portal:
A simple, easy to read FAQ on Memiontec, coming from the CEO himself.
A bite-sized series of 5 questions and answers from the Chairman of Don Agro.
A handy article analyzing JEP Holdings Ltd (SGX: 1J4), a leading provider of precision machining and engineering services to the aerospace industry.
Investor-One has a really handy search toolbar for “Quick Facts” on companies!
This is a great tool for investors who want to do research into the counters they are looking to invest in, and is particularly useful as a big picture overview for company analysis.
They also have a “IPO” section, featuring the performance of recent IPOs.
Investor-One is able to connect readers to management of SGX companies. For instance, this interview with Biolidics CEO, where he shares about the Company’s proprietary technology makes early detection and treatment of cancer much more effective.
When investing in any company, it’s really important to look at management as part of due diligence. As retail investors, we don’t always have easy access to senior management. Reading management interviews is a good way for retail investors to gain access into management thinking and their vision for their company.
Investor-One has a really interesting company performance section on the portal. This is particularly relevant for investors looking for updated information and trends. It’s also completely free, and a quick way to do some basic due diligence on the financial metrics before you do a deeper dive into the financial statements and business model.
