SINGAPORE stocks opened 0.02 per cent higher on Thursday, with the Straits Times Index (STI) adding 0.61 point to 3,067.14 - following a slight retreat in Tokyo as investors are said to have become cautious ahead of the Japanese prime minister's weekend meeting with US President Donald Trump.

About 55 million shares worth S$37.7 million changed hands as at 9am.

The most actively traded counter was International Healthcare Corporation, which rose by some 5 per cent to S$0.10, after it announced on Wednesday it has received a convertible loan facility of up to S$50 million from Oxley Holdings. Other actives included Artivision Tech and Addvalue Tech.

Gainers outnumbered losers 63 to 46.
