Food and retail consumer related. Think counters like Walmart, coca cola, Pepsi, McDonald's etc.

Possible, but I won't really recommend it. You never know what happens at the opening bell.

Charles and Keith, from what I read so far they have strong growth potential. Same for Aftershock and Secretlab. Also sitting on the fence for Grab and Carousell if they ever get listed. Their valuations seem sky high at the moment and yet I believe they have yet to turn profitable.

Mm should you be involved in stocks if you are more risk adverse? If you are still keen to do so, you may want to look towards stocks with a strong moat or with big competitive advantage. Stocks like Sheng Siong or Netlink trust or even reits with strong sponsors. Alternatively, look to create an account with a robo advisory and save the headache of having to stock pick at your current stage.

I have a small holding in FLT which I bought using CPF OA. Think it's great that there's a merger and from my brief reading of the issue it looks to be yield accretive. For now it's just a matter of watch and see.

I assume you are referring to Vanguard ETFs and not their mutual fund class. These are listed on the US market and you will require a broker that allows you to transact there. Either TD Ameritrade or Interactive Brokers will be good. Avoid the local brokers as the brokerage fee is much higher. I personally use TD Ameritrade and I like their robust and straightforward platform. There is an embedded chart that is great to use as well.

Look for undervalued dividend arisocrats. These refer to a category of stocks in the US market that have a record of raising their annual dividends for 25 years or more. There are some which have been beaten down in price due to a myriad of factors and are recovering.

There are a couple of methods to go about it - 1. having a CDP and cash brokerage account and 2. having a custodian account. CDP account is like a central depository for your shares, no matter which (non custodian) broker you use. You can buy shares using one broker and sell using another if you like. Fees are pretty standard, going at about S$25~++ minimum per buy or sell transaction. You can also "contra" the stock transactions. You can sign up for the CDP account at SGX (FAQ: https://www2.sgx.com/securities/retail-investor/cdp-faqs). You will then need to link a cash brokerage account to your CDP account. A bank account needs to be linked as well to receive dividends. Custodian accounts, the shares you purchase are held in trust by the broker. Typically the account needs to be prefunded before you can buy shares. And you need to sell off the shares using the same brokerage account. Fees are typically lower for such an account. Most banks will have some form of custodian account available. Stanchart, DBS vickers, etc. Cash brokerage accounts are available from firms like Maybank KE, Lim & Tan, etc.

I'm sitting on the fence for this once after the whole fiasco with citi's maxigain account. The 1.9% yield is attractive but it's not a firm number and may be reduced in future. Will probably hold off on going into it until later.

Look for blue chip / dividend aristocrats that have been beaten down recently. Quite a handful of them are rebounding in prices of late.
