Golden Agriculture stock: what’s next?

Yesterday (24 April 13), Golden Agriculture stock registered almost a 5% increase in its stock price from $0.525 to $0.55. This increase came after a large shareholder acquired more of the stock shares. With yesterday’s performance of Golden Agriculture, the RSI of the stock has headed from the “Oversold” level. I added more shares of Golden Agriculture stock when its stock price was battered down as my strategy has always been on buying good fundamental oversold stocks as I believe stock prices will go up again from the low prices. Just before the good performance of Golden Agriculture, an...

What to bring for AGMs

This week is the week when many listed companies will be hosting their AGMs. I will be attending one such AGM soon. Though many say that it is not necessary for retail investors to attend AGMs, I believe it is still worthwhile for a shareholder to attend at least one AGM of the stock company he purchases his stocks from so as to come face to face with the management of the company. It is after all every right of shareholder to attend AGMs and to ask the management of the company questions he has on the company. In...

3 events that will shape Singapore stocks

These few weeks, the Singapore stocks are performing in a non-uniform manner. The STI itself is not really a barometer of the Singapore stocks, as I have shared with you readers. It all depends on what stocks you actually buy and have. Take for example, despites those good oldies stock called blue-chip stocks going up or down, some penny stocks have registered good increase in stock prices. Anyway, coming back to the topic of today’s post: for the 3 events that will shape Singapore stocks, I will go on to describe 3 events outside of US and Europe that...

Singapore stocks Market Commentary – 5 Apr 2013

The STI headed south for a second straight day, closing the daily session at 0.24% lower. Breadtalk stock closed 5.6% lower while Golden Agriculture stock remained unchanged. While I feel that Golden Agriculture stock price is really quite attractive at $0.565, an analyst’s report that crude palm oil are still stockpiling at the plantations means that in the near term, there is no catalyst for Golden Agriculture stock prices. Investors who have bought into Breadtalk stock after a buy recommendation from an analyst report must not be very happy now. I think many investors have this mindset now which...

Singapore Stocks outlook 4 Apr 13

Today, the STI shed 0.42%. Of all the top volume stocks, there are some stocks of interest to me. Golden Agriculture stock price closed at $0.565. This price level is of interest to me as it is one of the lowest stock price levels that Golden Agriculture has attained since touching $0.562 in Oct 11. On a more personal level, I have a good number of shares of this stock at a high price (no regret when it comes to investment decision). I think I will still need to observe a bit more before deciding whether it is a...

Multi-Bagger stocks vs Multi-Beggar stocks

With the STI climbing higher and higher, there is generally a sense of optimism among investors here, at least for my friend who is quite sure that the STI will assume a bullish path. With stock sentiment that bullish, I believe many investors will be jumping into the fray to pick up certain stocks; there will also be many who will use this time to identify multi-bagger stocks, hoping to find the next stock like Osim that has ratcheted up more than 20 times in stock price! Multi-bagger stocks to me are hard to find but once one is...

Why I no longer read investment analysts’ reports

I used to read analysts’ reports and followed quite closely with their recommendations and thinking for some stocks that are covered in their analyst reports. Nowadays, I briefly just took a quick glance at what these investment analysts are saying rather than taking in entirety what they recommend. What the shift in attitude towards analyst reports, you may ask? Well it definitely has to do with my experiences with analyst reports. You may have guessed that I buy on a buy call from an analyst only to have the stock price go down on the very next day or...

Breadtalk stock: stellar performance!

As of 1st March 2013, Breadtalk ‘s stock price was $0.77. On the last day of March 2013 (29 March 2013), Breadtalk’s stock closed at $0.945. Within one month, Breadtalk’s stock price has soared almost 23%! Breadtalk is one of the various food play stocks in Singapore with the others being Old Chang Kee and FoodEmpire. Breadtalk’s stock performance in March 2013 has surprised me considering that Breadtalk’s stock price was $0.78 on 1st February 2013. However considering Breadtalk’s stock price was at $0.685 on the 1st trading day of 2013, Breadtalk’s stock price has soared 37% from start...

Singapore STI: is it time to buy stocks now?

The STI is currently at 3308.10. This is a respectable level for our Singapore bourse. So the question on the minds of many investors is whether the STI will continue to climb? For this, I opened up my stock charting software and looked at the technical graph of STI ETF. Looking at the chart of STI ETF will give me a sense of how the STI is performing since STI ETF is an exchange-traded fund which tracks the STI. From the graph, the STI ETF has a “Golden Cross” where the blue MACD line cuts the red signal line...

Singapore Stocks: whats next?

Singapore STI headed south yesterday. This is not surprising as after its strong rally past the 3,300 point, it is time for the STI to take a breather. Of the stocks that are of interest to me at the moment, NOL is one such stock as I have shared with all of you readers recently. NOL seems to be embarking on a strong rebound back, as I have shared until yesterday when the stock closed around 2.5% down to close at $1.185 from the closing price of $1.21 the day before. Also, I noted that $1.165 was actually the...

NOL stock

NOL stock has been climbing slowly, steadily and surely in its stock price. Just a week ago or so, I have initiated a coverage on this stock, at that point, the stock price was $1.15 to $1.16, when NOL’s RSI went out of oversold and the blue MACD just crossed the red signal line, indicating a “Golden Cross”. This was hence a favourable point of entry into NOL stock. Today, NOL stock closed at $1.205, this was around 5% increase over the price of $1.15. Now NOL’s stock price is going to cross over into the overbought region. Looking...

The urge to buy oversold stocks

For the previous few weeks, I was actually quite tempted to buy some good stocks which have been oversold as it is quite intuitive that a stock will rebound in stock price after the over-selling. It is like the cycle seen for the stock market in general like a wave. From my experience, buying an oversold stock can give a better probability of a profit than using some other technical indicators to time the buying of a stock. For those who are not into the technical aspects of stock investments, we can tell whether a stock is overbought or...

Invest in a stock sector favourable to you – Part 2

At last, I got some time to blog the second half (Part 2) of my post “Invest in a Sector favourable to you”. In my earlier segment of this same post (Part 1), I mentioned about how investors and traders in general use fundamental analysis to pick the stocks they would like to invest and use technical analysis to know when to enter and exit the stock or stock market. Today, I will just let on the essence of this post here. Actually the question many investors and traders will ask is whether is there really a stock sector...

Invest in a sector favourable to you –Part 1

When I first started investing, I read quite a lot of text describing the fundamental approach to picking the right stocks. Techniques like examining a company’s income sheet, balance sheet and cash-flow statement; techniques like working out using some complicated methods the intrinsic value of a stock, etc. However I have stopped doing the above as with the ease of access of analyst reports, important fundamental indicators are available to many. All the above techniques of fundamental analysis aim to help investors identify a “profitable” stock. However after identifying a “profitable” stock, I believe, in this stock market climate...

The rules of Investment

For quite some time, I have been doing some soul searching in my journey of investment. In the quest of my trading activities, I have been heading for profits and profits and liquidating them to realize these profits. Yes, profits to me are not really useful when you do not liquidate them as those profits in your outstanding portfolios may be whittled down to negative profits if you do not liquidate them in a timely manner. As a result of this pursuit, I have been doing quite a bit of trading, which result in some profits and some non-profits...
