Investing Strategy Revisited

Over the weekends, I have posted two posts about a humble investing strategy which would have netted an investor 15% returns year-to-date (you could read the two posts here: post 1  and post 2 ). The post has attracted some comments from readers, both good and not so good and I thought that my comments to readers’ comments via this post would make for another insightful post for readers.

Buying Singapore stocks now?

I have shared with readers in my previous posts that a Hillary Clinton’s win (when the informal polls was showing that she was winning Donald Trump by a good margin) should not be assumed. Indeed, the email scandal have shrunk the margin between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump at the informal polls. Further, the email scandals have more or less shaped the US markets’ performance in the previous week since that there is a likelihood that Donald Trump would win.

[Part 2] This humble investing strategy could have netted you 15% returns year-to-date

Warren Buffett has this saying about diversifying one’s investments: one does not know what one is buying business-wise. In fact, there is now a phrase called “diworsification” as a diversified portfolio might not reap the most optimal investment returns. Whether it is a focused or diversification strategy, I always believe that there is no right answer. The best investing strategy is one which the investor can make sense of, is comfortable with and which he can use consistently to generate profits.

In fact a profitable investing strategy is a simple one, simple enough for the investor to understand, stick to it, applies it and profits consistently from it. The investing strategy which I am going to share is one such humble strategy. In fact, this investing strategy is so humble that many say one should use it if one does not know how to invest. I know the above seems not good to an investor’s ego. But who cares about ego if one can profit from one’s investments?

[Part 1] This humble investing strategy could have netted you 15% returns year-to-date

Looking at the Singapore stocks markets, I think it is generally not easy to enter the stocks markets now since there are macro items which investors will want to focus for now: the US Presidential outcome, the US Federal Reserves interest rate hikes, the dynamics of oil prices. Amidst these macro items and the continued sluggish earning reports coming from listed companies, investors might ask whether there is an investing strategy which they can use to profit from the stocks markets while protecting one’s capital?

For, against the current stocks markets dynamics, it is not only difficult to profit from investments but it is even easier to lose one’s capital. What is the point of investing if one loses one capital? Not only does one not able to achieve a rate of returns which would beat the inflation rate, one would lose his capital. Thus, investors might then as well continue to put one’s monies in bank accounts where the inflation effect on your monies might still be less than the percentage of capital loss in the soured investment.

Secrets of Successful Investing REVEALED

I always think that time flies especially after stepping into the workforce. We are entering into November of the year. I believe a lot of us spend many of our best and working hours at work and it will be no surprise if many of us do not like or hate our jobs. It is a blessing for those who love their jobs, create value through their jobs to others at the same time and get handsomely paid for it all. Think successful entrepreneurs and professionals. For those of many who are in a job and stick to it though it does not pay much, there are only two things you can do where it comes to your financial expectations: lower your material expectations or look for alternatives.

Musing of the Singapore Stocks Markets

Some days ago, I read an article in the local newspapers which highlighted the situation facing some broking firms and remisiers today. According to the article, remisiers in Singapore these days may not be doing that well due to the thin trading volume on the Singapore bourse and hence this explains why the stock broking industry has seen a number of remisers left the industry. I could still recall that not too long ago, a group of stock brokers have banded together and submit a letter on how the Singapore stocks markets could be made more vibrant to DPM Tharman. All these just points to the situation of the Singapore stocks markets.

SING strategy for All Investors

As an employee, I can really identify with many of us holding full-time jobs that sometime we can be “burnt” out at work. I mean, lets face it, we spend so much of our time at work and for most of us, the work might not be the most interesting of all. But here we are, having to spend the bulk of our time at work, to earn monies to support ourselves and our families. But against the current economy backdrop, I would like to encourage those of us holding jobs that it is a blessing to stay employed and let us just work hard!

What All Investors should do now?

Dear readers, as you should have know by now, the Singapore stocks are trading without much of a clue, most of the attention these days are focused on the latest quarterly earnings of the Singapore companies, and from what we are reading so far from those companies which have released their earnings results, there are not much good profitable announcements, aren’t they? Instead, there have been announcements by many companies on how they intend to restructure costs amidst the less than stellar economies.

Will you Buy this 10.12% dividends yield Singapore Reit?

There is one Singapore Reit that is currently trading at an attractive 10.12% dividend yield and what makes it even more attractive is that it is currently undervalued at just 0.643 Price-to-Book ratio. Looking at the two fundamental figures, investors might be tempted to buy this stock. So what is this stock? Well, it is none other than Sabana Shari’ah Compliant Industrial REIT (Sabana Reit).

SINGTEL, STARHUB AND M1 STOCK: A TECHNICAL UPDATE

On 16 Sep 2016, I posted an article on the three telecom stocks. Let us revisit the stock prices of these telecom stocks vs the write-up of my article then.

First, Starhub stock closed at $3.46 in my September post and I mentioned that this stock was below the 200-days-moving-average which was a bearish sign. True enough, at the close of the trading day on 21 Oct 2016, Starhub stock price went further south to $3.39, down a further 2.1%., still below its 200-days-moving-average but not oversold yet.

Keppel Corp stock

In my previous post on SPH stock (you can access the post here), I mentioned how the earnings announcement of SPH would be a “prelude” to the nature of announcements from companies which will report their earnings next: slowing corporate net profits and announcements of how the company will contain costs. True enough, one of the companies which reported their earnings last night was Keppel Corp and Keppel Corp A3 net profit was down by 38.1% and while SPH intends to shave off 10% of its staff strength over time, Keppel has cut about 3,080 of its jobs and going forward, more reduction of its workforce is expected.

MM2 Asia stock: more than a 240% bagger!

Dear readers, with reference to my post  , I would like to inform readers that MM2 Asia stock price as of the first trading day of the year was actually $0.79. MM2 Asia stock price has also gone through two share splits. Looking at MM2 Asia stock price today of $0.465 and considering that the stock has gone through share splits, MM2 Asia is more than a two-bagger! I apologize for the error made as I have gotten the prices for my original post from a free trading software and hence there could be adjustments made to the prices by the software.

This Singapore stock has rallied 240% year-to-date, will it still advance?

Looking at the Singapore stocks markets now (as well as global stocks markets in general), and looking at the title of this blog post, it might be tempting to think that the multi-bagging effect as stated in the blog post title is unachievable. But well, some stocks do rise slowly day by day, such that after a long period of gradual rise, one looks back and find that yes, this stock is actually a multi-bagger stock.

Why should investors take note of SPH stock?

Dear readers, it is earnings report season once again and SPH was one of the first few companies to announce its results. The result is not only not good and we are reading a number of news from SPH today, I mean not reading the news from SPH’s newspapers but the announcements made by SPH today is news.

Are these the six Best Singapore stocks currently?

Singapore stocks have been behaving similarly to the global stocks markets with no clear catalysts. The two macro-events which I believe are of interest to investors worldwide are the Federal Reserves’ decision on interest rate hikes as well as the answer to who will be the President of the United States. Amidst this environment, while it could be not as easy to profit from Singapore stocks unless one holds a long-term position to ride out the stock markets dynamics, it can some time be good to see whether there are fundamentally good stocks in the stocks markets currently.

Capitaland stock vs Ying Li international stock: which one would you invest in?

Ever since I posted about Ying Li international stock (you can read the blog post here), the stock has corrected from $0.182 to $0.173 by about 4.9%. I see the price as profit-taking first before a bullish engulfing session of 4.2% to $0.173 for Ying Li international stock. The RSI of Ying Li international is currently above 70% meaning that it is still overbought; however the five-day-moving-average of this stock still is heading north, still quite a convincing move.

Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton: what it means for the global stocks markets?

If there is one global event which investors are looking forward, for clues on where the global stocks markets will head, it has to be the US Presidential Election which has reached the final stages where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are making their final pitches to woo more voters.

Good news for investors!

When readers look at the title of this post, readers must think that I am joking. For the Singapore stocks markets are, in line with the regional markets undergoing a southward movement. There is really a piece of good news and it resides in a letter which I receive from my telecom provider yesterday. My telecom provider is giving me additional GB for my mobile plan and I am really convinced that most of you readers will receive additional complimentary data packages too.

Tom K on Singapore stocks

Today, the Singapore’s benchmark STI stock index closed 1.49% lower to 2,813.71 in line with the showing of US stocks overnight. Looking at the technical charts, the STI is very close to the 200-Day Moving Average line of 2,800.

Will this stock continue to rally or will it be privatized soon?

Yesterday, we saw a good number of small-cap and middle-cap stocks making the most active volume Singapore stocks list. Noble Group continued its climb up on news that it will sell off one of its unit. Among the top 20 volume list was a S-chip stock which has been chalking up gains in the trading sessions. When it comes to S-chip stocks, many investors might shrug it off since there were some S-chip scandals in Singapore before and some investors have learnt their lessons investing in these stocks. But this S-chop stock which has been chalking up gains in its stock price is one which has relatively good fundamentals.

TWILIO stock: already more than a four-time bagger!

Twilio, a tech debutant on the NYSE stock exchange not too long ago had an IPO price of US$15 and opened on the first day of its trading on 23 Jun 2016 at $23.99. Twilio stock closed 60% higher at $28.79 on the first day of its trading. As of 7 Oct 2016, Twilio stock closed at USD $60.58, more than 400% of its IPO price. For those investors who are not too sure of what this stock is all about, well Twilio is a cloud communications company based in San Francisco, California. Twilio’s products are enablers for software developers to programmatically make and receive phone calls and send and receive text messages using its web service APIs. This is in short, a kind of “platform stock” which always get investors excited.

Could this have been a great investing opportunity for investors?

In the last week of Sep 2016, SMRT shareholders concurred via voting to SMRT’s privatisation offer. Already we could see some changes ahead. If you know what I am referring to, yes it is the plans of SMRT to consider whether to overhaul or revamp the Bukit Panjang LRT system which has experienced a bout of train or rail faults recently. Personally, I am in favour of retaining the LRT as the system given proper upkeep should be a faster transport option for commuters.

Could this the next Best World stock?

Noble Group stock rose another 7.3% yesterday to close the trading day at $0.191. Since reaching a low of $0.112 on 2 Sep 2016, the rally in Noble Group stock translated to an impressive 70.5%. And there seems to be no stopping Noble Group since from the technical charts, I noted that even with yesterday high price on an equally impressive volume, Noble Group stock price is still below its 200-days moving average.

SUPER GROUP STOCK: SAM GOI EFFECT OR PRIVATISED SOON?

Today, Super Group rallied by an impressive 12.5% to reach a high of $0.90, a price level which was not seen since April 2016. And the rally was on an impressive 13.9 million volume, which was exactly ten times the trading volume of Super Group yesterday. This usual trading volume prompted an enquiry by the SGX and Super Group replied to the effect that it did not know what might have caused the rally in its stock price today. From the technical trading charts, the price movement of Super Group today has transcended up beyond the 200-days moving average and if the rally thereafter is sustainable, a new uptrend may ensue for this stock.
