    STOCKS TO WATCH
    -- PROPERTY STOCKS 
    - Property stocks may come under pressure after the
Singapore government increased a tax on foreign buyers as part
of new measures to cool its housing market, which has seen
continued strong demand in the face of a weak economy and
previous efforts to curb prices. 
    
    -- EZRA HOLDINGS LTD 
    - Singapore offshore services firm Ezra said on Monday its
first-quarter net profit fell 49 percent to $6.8 million from a
year earlier, dragged down by higher expenses and lower
contributions from associated companies. 
    
    -- HYFLUX LTD 
    - Singapore water services company Hyflux said its
consortium had sealed a water purchase agreement to deliver
desalinated water to Dahej Special Economic Zone in Gujarat,
India. Hyflux expects to take on around $420 million of the
project value, the company said.
