I recently read about the upcoming 6-month T-Bills auction on 18 Jan and the speculation around whether interest rates will break 4.0% or drop again. There’s also discussion about whether 12-month T-Bills or Money Market Funds are a better buy. In addition, the construction of the Singapore RTS Link, connecting Johor Bahru and Singapore, has passed the 65% mark on both sides, with passenger service slated to start soon. Furthermore, there’s an article about why buying OCBC Bank Stock in 2024 at a 6.2% dividend yield might be a good idea, and a piece on how one’s environment can attract wealth.

Another newsletter mentioned 60+ of Wall Street’s Best Dividend Stocks for Dependable Dividend Growth, and when taxes can be filed in 2024. It also touched on Apple starting compensation payouts for claims it slowed down iPhones and the importance of focusing on risk reduction for those retired or nearly retired in 2024. Additionally, there was information about the stock market’s schedule for Martin Luther King Day and an advertisement for Betterment’s investing and savings technology.

Lastly, I came across a newsletter discussing the surge in business formations in the US, with a record number of new business applications being filed. There’s a debate about whether this indicates a real startup boom or just the rise of gig work and side hustles. The newsletter also mentioned the increase in actual company formations and new business hiring throughout the US, but noted that the new business boom may be slowing down.

Stay Well!
