SmallChange SGX, get the IPO party going again for small investors

15 May 2017 09:00

By Dennis Chan

I'm probably the kind of investor that the Singapore Exchange (SGX) is aiming to capture when it announced recently that it is relooking ways to rejuvenate interest among retail investors to trade on the stock market.

As an investor, I'm particularly keen on two of its initiatives.

Firstly, it wants to widen the "tick" size for shares trading in the $1-$1.99 range from half a cent to one cent. A tick is the minimum price movement. Under current rules, the tick for shares between 20 cents and $1.995 is half a cent.

Intuitively, this makes shares that are at the higher end of this range less attractive to trade than lower-priced ones due to lower volatility. For example, a one-tick rise in a $1.50 stock represents a percentage gain of just 0.3 per cent whereas the same increase in a 50-cent stock works out to 1 per cent. This is one reason that traders looking for a punt prefer to focus on lower-priced stocks.
