    STOCKS TO WATCH
    
    - SINGAPORE AIRLINES 
    The airline reported a 54 percent drop in second-quarter net
profit and said the outlook remained challenging, made worse by
high and volatile jet fuel prices.
    But the results were in line with the S$93 million ($76
million) average forecast of four analysts polled by Reuters and
better than the S$78 million net profit achieved in the
April-June quarter. 
    
    - STARHUB 
    The telecoms company reported a 27 percent rise in quarterly
profit. It maintained its outlook for operating revenue to grow
in the low single-digit range year-on-year. 
    
    - COSCO 
    The shipbuilder's quarterly net profit fell 17 percent and
it forecast a weak outlook.
