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-Chips at 52-Week Highs

Singapore’s Straits Times Index (STI) is still some way off its one-year high of around 3,131 points…

but some index components are already selling near their respective 52-week high share prices.

They could be worthy of some research for those who are looking for stock investment ideas.

Here, let’s explore the top five blue-chips whose share prices are close to their 52-week highs (data as of 2 September 2020).

Venture is a global electronics services provider while Mapletree Logistics Trust is the first Asia-focused logistics REIT.
