At quick glance it looks like there's a currency headwind, the stock just went ex-dividend at the end of last week, there's a coronavirus outbreak that will likely reduce demand for their products to some extent, and they've got an earnings report coming out soon that investors could be nervous about.

When everybody is waiting, it will not come down. The only thing thatís behaving predictably appears to be USD/SgD

I think it is better to decide on a particular allocation, even if it is very conservative, like 25-35%, and get some money into the market and then keep adding slowly, if there is a crash put more money it. Waiting for a crash will drive you mad. BTW are you still earning or are you retired? This about the money you are going to accumulate year after year from savings, all that money needs to go somewhere. It can't go to bonds. So markets will always have demand as long as people are generating surplus money.
