Two Questions before you buy Singapore Stocks now

The Singapore stocks markets now presents a buying opportunity for those who are brave enough to “be greedy when other are fearful”, to quote, the famous saying of the world’s best investor, Mr Warren Buffet. I see that the Singapore stocks market are beginning to go into a bearish mode as with the bettering of the US economy, many retail investors really think that the United States will scale down its money-printing measures in the Quantitative Easing moves. I believe now is a good time to buy good stocks at a discount. Commodities stocks group especially Noble group is...

Investment Epiphany

I experience an investment epiphany of sorts. I have actually realized that all these while, I have taken for granted the very computer hardware and connections which allow me to do my blog and trade. Like many Singaporeans, I have been busy working to actually take note and appreciate something that is important and fundamental but not easily appreciated. It is when we experience something with the most basic and fundamentals of things that underpin and support our daily work that we begin to take notice and show appreciation of them. The computer epiphany sparks an inner quest within...

Learning from Investment Mistakes

I am pretty new to investing, having bought my first stock back in year 2010. I still remembered that I first started my trading account back in year 2008 and for two years, the trading account was simply not used at all as I was quite fearful of making that very first foray into investment. You see, I have been so called “burnt” by bad investments before. Back in year 2007, I bought into a US Reits from an insurance agent who mentioned good returns but after I bought into the stocks, the stock price came south especially during...

SINGAPORE STOCKS TO REDUCE LOT SIZE

The SGX is seeking a consultation exercise with the public on its proposal to reduce the minimum trading lot size from 1,000 to 100 and ultimately to 1 lot. It is reported that this proposal will be good to retail investors. I feel that though the minimum buying lot is reduced 10 times, it does not mean that retail investors will have a better chance of profiting from trading or investments, it just means that the entry barriers to investing in stocks on the SGX becomes easier. I think that this proposal is good to me only should I...

Top 30 mid-cap stocks

An analyst from a renowned stock broking firm has just released a list of his recommended top 30 mid-cap stocks. This is not the first time that the stock broking firm releases its recommended stock list and based on the previous lists the firm has released, the track record is there. I glanced at the list of the recommended stocks this time round and I see there are both strong names and lesser-known names but most of the stocks on this list have a record of giving dividends to investors. The table contained in the recommendation list is quite...

MEDISHIELD LIFE

MEDISHIELD LIFE is a new health initiative announced by PM Lee In today’s National Day Rally. While PM Lee did not give more details about MEDISHIELD LIFE, it is clear from his speech that Medisave contributions will increase. I think it is long overdue that we need a fundamental relook at our health policies. There have always been calls for a National Healthcare Insurance and in today’s National Day Rally, it seems that Singapore is gearing in the direction of this National Healthcare Insurance with the announcement of MEDISHIELD LIFE and other Medisave incentives. As I see that the...

THE BEST SGX STOCK

Can anyone tell me what a Good stock in the Singapore Stocks Market is today? I pose this question to readers as in today’s market; traditionally good stocks seem to have their stock prices heading south. Good stocks in the beliefs of many retail Singapore investors are blue chip stocks, which are mostly constituent stocks of the STI. With the economies of the world in the current states now, most of these blue chip and good stocks have been their stock prices headed south and these are mostly cyclical plays in commodities, shipping and property arenas. However I must...

Wealth Creation and Value Creation

In a post which I have earlier made, I have shared with readers that to create wealth, we must create value and this value creation permeates every aspect of our lives. To earn more monies in our work, we must create value for our employers. To earn more profits in their businesses, business owners must create value for their customers. Value creation is the very essence of wealth creation. And to recap, I have also shared with readers that investors can reap wealth by extracting value from the stocks they buy; this means buying the right stocks and selling...

VOYAGE STOCKS RESEARCH

VOYAGE RESEARCH will be the new name of SIAS Research after SIAS Research split away from SIAS over fundamental differences as I have read from the newspapers today. The fundamental differences stem from the very nature that SIAS Research which researches on stocks and produce research reports is a for-profits organization while SIAS which is an advocate for the common retail investors, is a not-for-profits organization. It is also reported that Roger Tan, the CEO of SIAS Research has bought out the shares of SIAS Research to effect the split away from SIAS and that it has taken two...

GOLDEN AGRICULTURE AND NOBLE GROUP; COMMODITIES STOCK OUTLOOK

Both commodity stocks: Noble and Golden Agriculture stock continued to head south in their stock prices after their latest earnings results announcement. Noble stock and Golden Agriculture stock are now at a price level that could be viewed as attractive. But I believe the question that weighs on investors’ mind is where the bottom is that these two stocks could reach for when Noble stock reached $1, we thought that may be the lowest for the stock but it headed south even further. A charting chart for these two stocks which I have read on newspapers pointed that Noble...

BREADTALK STOCK

BREADTALK STOCKhas been heading north in its stock prices. When Breadtalk stock was first listed on SGX, not many people will foresee that Breadtalk stock will grow into a food empire stock with business in not only its chain of Breadtalk stocks but also in an array of restaurants catering to different tastebuds. And the most impressive fact of Breadtalk stock is that it has also operations in many countries outside of Singapore. I watched Moneyweek on Channel U last Saturday where it carried an interview with the founder of Breadtalk. Though I have read the news before that...

VALUE CREATION FOR GREATER FINANCIAL HEALTH

Unless you are a self-employed person and running a profitable business, else you may be like me, one of the many employees who depend on a salary for a living. For many of us, our income is fixed and if we do not have any other avenues of wealth generation, the only way we can get better financially is through promotions which will lead to our salaries heading north. This is why many of the employees fight among themselves for promotions and office politics prevails in the workplace. I myself am no stranger to office politics in my workplace;...

WHY CASH IS KING?

I observe that financial institutions here are doing more to promoting the concept of investing to Singaporeans. The concept of investing may be quite attractive in this era of low interest rate where one earns very little interest on their bank deposits; hence it may be more worthwhile to put one’s monies in investments. Cash is not really attractive, the advocates of investments say as they encourage others to put the monies they have earned into investments. But is Cash no longer attractive as compared to investments? I do not think so. I still think that Cash is King...

NATIONAL DAY EFFECT ON SINGAPORE STOCKS

This week, Singapore celebrates the National Day. Besides National Day, Singapore also celebrates the Hari Raya Puasa. With one holiday after another, Singaporeans enjoy a long weekend this week. This means that the Singapore Stock Exchange is open for the week till the eve of Hari Raya Puasa. This week, being a holiday week, will no doubt brings cheers to Singaporeans. It is debatable as to whether local investors who may be in a good mood due to the holidays will be galvanised into buying more stocks on the Singapore Stocks Exchange. There is also no evidence that nationalistic...
