It’s the reporting season again. We are now seeing a string of releases from companies revealing their earnings release for 3Q15.

Controversial issues aside, investors are eyeing earnings release as they spot for clues on the strength of the economy, especially in the U.S, in the absence of economic data.

In the lion city, we have seen notable start to the earnings releases, with Singapore Exchange (SGX) reporting a surge in derivatives average daily contracts traded, and a 28 percent increase in net profit for 1Q16.

However, it is also notable that the haze in Singapore is erratic, bad, and probed us to look at the plantation sector, which looks like a key beneficiary to rise in bad weather. Oh, did we forget to mention that the entire sector is depressed and undervalued?

We’ve sieved out 2 stocks we think can benefit the rising tide in this sector. To find out what stocks they are, turn to page 6.

On an overall economic view, Singapore just managed to stave off a technical recession. Economic data indicators are not encouraging. For more information, turn to page 12.

Lastly, the multiple brute force interventions in the China economy to stimulate the Chinese stock market, has caused a lot of volatility. We tell you what policies will not die in the next five years, and which sectors, you can take a ride on. More details of this are on page 14.
