Default new in investing

Hi, i have just graduated and only started working for 3 months, i would like to invest or allocate some parts of my income monthly, but i am unsure of where to start.

E.g. which company is better or which company allow this kind of monthly investment over the long term.
im not talking abt insurance.

thanks

Hi bro, I am also in the same boat. I did research and found these stocks are the better stocks to buy. My search is based on stocks that pay dividends. But I don't know how often do the make dividend payouts - is it monthly, quarterly, bi annual or yearly. I hope someone will answer the dividend payout frequency.

Hihi. Investing is quite tricky.

Don't buy the highest dividends stocks juz for the income. Neither should
You buy the cheapest prices stock. In terms of price or price to earnings.

Focus on the blue chips like DBS. UOb and OcBC and starhub shares.
Juz some examples. Read more on their research

Many websites do provide. Like six.com/research and shareinvestor and
Also theedgeinvestor.com

Do revert if you have any queries

To find out frequency of dividend payouts and the amount, you can go to sgxdata.pebbleslab.com

All dividend paying stocks in sti are listed there.

It's good that you are starting out young. Be patient with your investments, the payoff will come, but over time.

Nowadays it is quite difficult to pick multi baggers. In the past, it was quite common for blue chip companies to split and give out bonus shares. After splitting, the shares will initially drop by the total number of shares issued, but over time people will chase the shares to the before split price and beyond!
