If you want to invest in stocks and have absolutely no clue, then buy index ETFs (exchange traded fund). Very low fees and they track the STI average, so if the market goes up, you make money, plus you get dividends too. I like these guys:

i would say ETF is an idiot proof method of investing. select a few ETF that cover a few regions and sectors, hold them for a few years and you are almost certain of making money

for a complete range of ETF available in Singapore:
