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.
