ATTILAN GROUP STOCK: will you invest in it?

Will you invest in ATTILAN Group stock? Before you answer the question, let me share with you what “Attilan” is, if you are like me who do not know the meaning. Well, the city of Attilan is, according to a website, the home for the inhumans, who are a fictional race of superhumans which appears in various comic book series published by Marvel Comics. After learning about the name of “Attilan”, I feel awed by such a heroic name of a Singapore stock. Fiction aside, Attilan stock is currently not listed in Singapore Stocks Markets though it will be...

What Singapore Stocks I am looking at now?

I know that it has been some time since I blogged about the Singapore stocks which I am looking at. Well, though I understand that readers in general do welcome this type of posts from me as well as fellow finance bloggers, I think it would be useful to observe the Singapore stocks markets first before making an informed posts to readers; hence such posts about stocks which are on my “stock radar” will be on a regular, though not on a daily blog posting. So where are we at now for Singapore stocks? It seems to me, taking...

How can SGX help these investors?

I have been holding two S-chip stocks, bought at good entry points. Though there are strong fundamentals to these stocks, the price of these stocks has all along been below my purchase price. This has led me to not consider S-chip stocks as stocks which I will consider to add to my portfolio a really, I believe investors here do not really appreciate S-chip stocks. The scandal of some S-chip stocks in the past also did not help much in having investors appreciate these stocks. Many S-chip stocks also experience price-swings and not-so-experienced investors may have to learn some...

Loving what you do and monies will come to you?

Some of my friends have good business titles so much so that I am just a “small fry” as compared to them. But I am okay with the comparisons, as really, I believe each one of us has his or her own unique talents and if they love what they do and do what they love, monies, as we learn in many books will come naturally to them. I know the above saying may not be necessarily true as I think many people may love their jobs but there is really a “ceiling” to how much their professions can...

The Greatest Investor in Singapore is…..

When it comes to the title of the Greatest Investor in the world, without a doubt, many will say out the name of Warren Buffet. Indeed, Warren Buffet is able to grow his investment many times more so much so that he always make it to one of the top three in the world’s richest list. If we are to ask who the Greatest Investor in Singapore is, I think many people will count Peter Lim as one of the Singaporeans qualified for this title. For truly, Peter, who was a former remisier is able to grow his wealth...

How should investors invest now?

From the way most of my friends invest, I see a trend of trading rather than investing. Trading is in today’s context, to enter into the stock markets, have a quick “turn-over” holding period and earn fast profits: it would be even better if the profits are made contra. I used to adopt this “modus operandi” however I think even for trading, one needs to plan, on what stocks to buy and when to buy. Many traders, I believe, are speculators, not knowing that when the price of a share goes higher, it is probably time for the bigger...

What I think of Singapore stocks now?

I am not looking closely at Singapore stocks these days as the STI says it all: the STI is consolidating around a certain level and though the STI is just a basket of thirty blue-chip stocks; the sentiments are felt on all second-tier and third-tier stocks as well. Some penny stocks see heavy trading action, but I am not one who engages in too much of speculation over these stocks. Crude oil prices continue to be in the lows, certain sectors like commodities are still not going up and investors’ radar continues to focus on the clues for the...

Why are we bullish about this stock?

Global Yellow Pages stock currently trades at 3.7 cents, some 15% higher than its recent-low of 3.2 cents. Global Yellow Pages stock has earlier been consolidating at four cents. I know that I have given my bullish sentiments on this counter and I was not the only one bullish on this stock as Global Yellow Pages has also attracted a substantial shareholder in the company: a law professor to increase his stake in the company further earlier and his purchase price of the stock was four cents too. So why are we (at least the law professor and myself)...

Why I believe in investing towards greater financial goals?

Investing to some is risky and this has led some to not consider investing as a path towards greater financial goals. Many have also started investing but may not have fared to their expectations in their investing journey. If you ask me, investing is not easy but I still believe in investing as a path towards greater financial goals for to me, investing is a fair way towards wealth. The returns one reaps from the stock markets really hinges on the efforts he puts in understanding the markets and the companies. As a result, investing is fair; you reap...

One good hot tip to save monies and improve your Investing IQ

Throughout this blog, my message to readers and retail investors seeking how best to improve on their investments has always been consistent, that is to read up and learn more.

At the bookstores, I have always seen very good financial titles on the bookshelves. While it is good to buy these books costing an average of $20 each, I have an even better tip for all: why not save...

SGX completes investigations into trading disruption

When I read that SGX has completed the investigations into the trading disruptions, for once, I thought that the investigations pertain to the penny stocks saga involving Blumont, Asiason Capital and LionGold. However as I read further into the news, the trading disruptions are the ones pertaining to the back-up power and software updates of SGX. It seems to me that investigations into the penny stocks saga have taken quite some time. However, I am okay as long as the authorities really shed light on what caused the penny stocks saga. I read that for some investors, they have...

A stock I have on a “love and hate” relationship

I have a “love and hate” relationship with one of the stocks I own. Why it that so? Well, ever since I bought the stock at its IPO price, its price has been staying below my purchase price, hence I am not happy at its stock performance. However when it comes to dividends payouts, the dividends have been good. To illustrate this, just look at the dividends which I have been receiving these years from my capital of $2,590 into two thousand shares of this stock. Year 2011: $45.16 Year 2012: $152.67 Year 2013: $148.89 Year 2014: $133.06 Year...

SINGAPORE SAVINGS BONDS FOR RETAIL INVESTORS

A Savings Bonds programme targeted at retail investors will be launched. Investors can put in a minimum of S$500, and in subsequent multiples of S$500 and hold the investments for ten years. The Savings Bonds’ interest rates will increase over time. Investors can opt for a monthly issuance of their money, or they can choose to withdraw all of their money any time; in both cases with no penalty and with the principal sum and any accrued interest. When I learnt of the announcement, I thought that the government has heard my proposed initiative to celebrate SG50 for retail...

I paid my Final respects to Mr Lee Kuan Yew

Yesterday, I woke up at 0400 hrs to prepare to pay my final respects to Mr Lee Kuan Yew. I took a taxi down Padang and when the taxi arrived near Padang, the taxi had to drop me at one point on the road as the queue was overwhelming. When I alighted from the taxi near Padang, I had to retrace the start of the queue amidst throngs of crowds and this journey took me right to near the entrance of Raffles City Shopping Centre for the start of the queue line.Like myself, everyone in the queue did not...

Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s legacy for retail investors

Much has been said about the great achievements of Mr Lee Kuan Yew in all aspects of our lives in Singapore. Singaporeans enjoy clean water, clean environment, good jobs, good education, good housing and many other good benefits and these are all Thanks to our founding father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. As an avid financial blogger who feel very much for the thousands of retail investors here in Singapore, I would like to say Thank You to our founding father for one aspect of Singaporean living which is, in my opinion, not really very often cited and that is...
