SINGAPORE: It has been a volatile year for the Straits Times Index (STI), but Singapore shares managed to show some resilience, closing at 3,365.15 on Wednesday (Dec 31). This works out to a gain of more than 6 per cent for the year as a whole.

At the other end of the scale were offshore marine players such as Keppel and Sembcorp Industries, and casino operator Genting Singapore. The bottom five counters were SIA Engineering (down 15.76 per cent), Sembcorp Industries (down 18.64 per cent), Keppel Corp (down 20.91 per cent), Sembcorp Marine (down 26.38 per cent) and Genting Singapore (down 27.76 per cent).
