Market News In 2 Minutes @ 5th November 2014

Market News in 2 minutesAs stock investors (even though a small one), it is important to keep abreast with the latest financial and market news. Since I am in it, I thought it might be worthwhile to share it out with my readers too.

Hence, I started this "Market News In 2 Minutes" series.

Following are the "Market News In 2 Minutes" for today :

1. REITS : CitySpring Infrastructure Trust (A7RU) - Its revenue slipped 2 percent to $127.1 million for the second quarter ended 30 September, mainly as a result of lower contributions from SingSpring and Basslink. While total expenses fell 2.4 percent led by an 18.3 percent reduction in other operating expenses, losses expanded to $1.6 million. For the six months, revenue edged up 1.5 percent to $260.5 million while the trust returned to the black to recognise profit of $0.9 million. A distribution per unit of $0.0082 was declared for the quarter. (source : Shares Investment)
