Top 10 Singapore Blue-Chip Stocks That Are Trading Near Their 52-Week Highs
Other than looking at shares hitting 52-week lows for investment ideas, we can flip the logic around and look at companies that are near their 52-week high prices.
A stock that is selling near its 52-week high could mean that it has strong business prospects that the market is taking notice of.
After all, investors attain multi-baggers when a stock hits 52-week highs again and again throughout the holding period.
Finding Blue-Chip Stocks at 52-Week Highs
With that, let’s explore the top 10 blue chips whose share prices are close to their 52-week highs (data as of the close on 13 August 2021).
