Some noteworthy points below
a) Average analyst target: $10.08
Based on Bloomberg (see Fig 1 below), average analyst target price is around $10.08. If consensus is right and assuming that analysts do not change their target prices, SGX offers a potential capital upside of around 21%. Coupled with an estimated dividend yield of around 3.9%, total potential return is around 25%.
For the eagle eye readers, you will have noticed that since 10 Oct, there have been mixed analyst calls. To some extent, the recent decline can be attributed to the recent sell calls on SGX with target prices ranging from $8.00 – 9.25.

b) Valuations seem reasonable against 10Y average valuations
Based on Bloomberg, SGX trades at 20.1x PE and 5.9x P/BV. This is approximately 1.5x and 2.8x standard deviations below its 10Y average PE and P/BV of 23.3x and 8.7x respectively.
c) Chart – extremely oversold in the near term
Since 4 Oct 2022, SGX has fallen for 12 consecutive sessions, logging its longest losing streak since its IPO in 2000! Over the past 12 sessions, SGX has lost a total of 12.5%, or $1.19 to close at $8.33 on 20 Oct 2022.
Based on Chart 1 below, it is apparent that SGX is mired in a strong downtrend. Nevertheless, there are three noteworthy points on the chart.
- There is a gap formed on 20 Oct. This may either be a continuation gap or an exhaustion gap. If prices form new lows within the next few days, then it is a continuation gap (bearish). Conversely, if prices do not form new lows over the next few days and the price subsequently closes the gap, then, it is likely to be a bullish exhaustion gap;
- SGX has fallen to a cluster of good support region of around $8.27 – 8.32;
- RSI hit an extremely oversold level 13.3, the lowest since 2008! Suffice to say that, near term continuous downside may be limited as extreme oversold pressures build.
Near term SS: $8.32 / 8.27-8.28 / 8.18 – 8.20
Near term RR: $8.39 – 8.45 (gap) / 8.56 – 8.60 / 8.70
