As the economy grows in affluence, Singaporeans look to the different avenues of investment for their excess cash. Out of the various alternatives, stock or shares, property and cars have received keen attention from investors. This paper attempts to identify any possible relationships that may exist between the price trends of the three above-mentioned components. Firstly, a general overview of the three markets is given. Factors affecting the price trends of each component are also discussed. The regression analysis that follows determines if there is any linear association between the stock returns, property price returns and COE returns, taken two at a time. Results of the study showed that linear relationships exist between the components. Hence, it is reasonable to expect the performance in one market to affect the performance in another in the same direction.
