SINGAPORE (THE BUSINESS TIMES) – Singapore shares advanced on Monday, tracking gains on Wall Street as concerns about the Federal Reserve dialling back on support for the economy eased.

Among the STI constituents, Keppel Corp was the was the best-performing stock; its shares ended 3.7 per cent or $0.20 higher at $5.60.

CapitaLand, one of the top-performers, rose 1.6 per cent or $0.06 to end at $3.74. It had announced that it plans to divest partial stakes in a group of companies that own six of its Raffles City developments in China for 46.7 billion yuan (S$9.67 billion), which will generate over $2 billion in proceeds.

At the bottom of the table were Singapore Airlines which fell 2.6 per cent or $0.13 to $4.86.
