  • MC Payment Limited (MCPP SP) Shares rose by 9.1% yesterday, even though there was no company specific news. Shares could have risen due to the overall positive sentiment on digital banking and payment. The Business Times published yesterday that Singapore fintech FOMO Pay had obtained new licenses from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) to operate three new regulated activities. Merchants will be able to leverage FOMO Pay’s services to accept and process payment transactions. FOMO Pay will also be able to carry out local money transfer services in Singapore for its clients, as well as facilitate transactions with digital payment tokens – including cryptocurrency and the central bank digital currency (CBDC).

  • Jardine Matheson Holdings Limited (JM SP) Shares rose by 4.4% yesterday after the heavy sell-off the previous day due to the MSCI Singapore Index rebalancing.  The rise in share price was likely due to a technical rebound, as RSI dipped below 30 in the last 2 weeks of August. Shares of Jardine, which gets more than half of its annual revenue from Southeast Asia, dropped 8.6% last month, ranking it among the worst performers in the Straits Times Index. Concerns over the delta variant have punctuated a stark turnaround for the stock, which surged 25% in March on a restructuring plan. 
  • RH Petrogas Limited (RHP SP) shares rose by 3.8%. There was no company specific news, however the rise in share price could have been in tandem with the recent rebound in oil prices as Hurricane Ida disrupted US oil production and gasoline supplies.
