8.) GTI Ranking: 2
10.) Recommendation: Sell. I believe that selling the stocks would be a wise choice now as an additional telecom, may be introduced into Singapore as Singapore’s 4th telecom company. This may have an effect on Singtel, as the new telecom would absorb a portion of the existing market share in Singapore. I believe it is recommended to purchase stocks from Singtel after the 4th telecom company has been introduced, as Singtel would definitely have counter measures to compete with the new competitor in the market which might boost investors’ confidence. Moreover, Singtel has a larger revenue and is able to handle the competition.
