[2022] Blue-Chip Stocks In Singapore

Views 7902022.11.29

Definition: What are Blue-Chip Stocks?

A blue-chip stock is a stock that is generally considered to be a reliable and safe investment. Did you know that the term "blue chip" is thought to have come from poker, where the most valuable chip is the blue chip?

Properties of Blue-Chip Stocks

The term is now used more broadly to refer to any stocks seen as lower-risk investments. These stocks are typically from large, well-established companies with a history of strong financial performance. Investing in blue chip stocks is often seen as a safe bet, as these companies are typically less volatile than smaller companies. They also tend to pay regular dividends, which can provide a steady income stream for investors.

However, blue chip stocks are not without risk. They can be affected by the same economic factors that affect all stocks. In addition, as blue-chip companies are larger in scale, they may be less nimble and, thus, slower to respond to changing market trends.

These stocks are primarily valued for their strong fundamentals rather than for speculative reasons. This means that investors can expect these stocks to experience a slower yet steady rise in value over the years rather than an explosive increase in value typically associated with industries such as tech that are more speculative in nature.

Regardless, for many seasoned investors, blue chip stocks form a core part of their investment portfolio. These stocks can provide stability and growth and can generate a good source of passive income via dividend payments.
