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...

INVESTMENTS IS NOT EASY

In the Investment interview section of yesterday’s The Sunday Times, there was an interview with a woman; this time round, it seemed to me that unlike the many rich people who were interviewed for the weekly series, the heartlanders featured in that article seems to be from a middle-income family. As the interview article turns out, the woman featured turns to investment to make her monies work harder for her; this is because after getting married and having children, she finds that there is a real need for her monies to work harder for her. While I share with...

of SALARY and WORK

Socrates once said: “By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.” So have you become a philosopher? Anyway, I would like to extend this saying to work for work to many of us is important as we depend on it for our livelihoods and we spend so many hours every day at work. So have you become a philosopher at work? For me, I think I have become a philosopher after seeing and experiencing the many “politicians” (people playing politics) in my office. Unless...

YOMA STRATEGIC STOCK

YOMA STRATEGIC STOCK is currently oversold as I have seen from the RSI of YOMA STRATEGIC STOCK . YOMA STRATEGIC STOCK appears as one of the top volumes of Singapore stocks quite regularly as it is seen as a proxy for Myanmar and Myanmar is now a hot country for investors as the country opens up for foreign investment and is now embarking on a massive phase of infrastructure building. Personally, I have not invested in YOMA STRATEGIC STOCK as my favourites have always been in Commodities but just look at how commodities have fared and you would have...

INVEST FAIR 2013

INVEST FAIR 2013 is here again this weekends at Suntec City. There will be free talks, demonstrations and exhibitions from companies selling financial products. I still recall when I was just starting out on my investment journey, I attended the INVEST FAIR on a yearly basis. Then, I was amazed at the very elaborate trading software with different kinds of colourful technical charts presented at the fair. I also recalled being somewhat “holed up” in a small room with others listening to a Forex professional who presented the possibility of good profits that could be made with little capital....

A GLIMPSE INTO THE RICH LIFESTYLE

I did not work on one weekday last week. I was in one of the most expensive living districts in Singapore: Orchard Road. There, I saw, surrounding me are very large mansions, very expansive bungalows and super-tall and nice condominiums. I visited a very posh shopping centre in the vicinity; the shopping centre has very high-ended retail stores with all branded good stacked up. It was quite early in the morning but it was already office time, there I saw quite a number of locals, expatriates sipping coffee, taking in their pastries slowly, exchanging pleasantries in groups or as...

SINGAPORE COMMODITIES STOCKS

I read an article yesterday in which the author shares the classification of Singapore Commodities stocks here. According to the author, there are three classes of commodities stocks here. First, we have the supply chain stocks like Wilmar, Olam and Noble. Second, we have the plantation stocks like Golden Agriculture, Bumitama, etc. Third, we have the MOG (Metals, Oils and Gases) stocks like Lion Gold and Kris Energy. As I read the three groupings I could not help but think that the risks of the stocks also varies as we go from one group to the other. First the...

FINANCIAL SUCCESS HEADSTART

I like to read the Sunday Times’ Invest Section where every week, there will be an interview with a Singaporean about his financial planning and success. Yesterday, there was an interview with a man who was the younger brother of an actor sharing his financial experience. Article after article, what I read was someone accumulating quite a lot of wealth and assets most of us are just starting to enter the workforce. While I should not discount all the hard work towards financial success which some of these people featured might have done, I could not help but think...

The Economics of Everything and of Stocks

My umbrella is spoilt once again. I could not recall how many times I have changed an umbrella. Just few days ago, my computer is also giving me some problems in terms of hard disk; I think my computer is due for replacement soon. In today’s era, everything seems easily spoilt as compared to the past eras. I don’t know whether this is something necessary to stimulate the economy, the market demand as if something works all the time, there will be no recurrent expenditure for companies. But this means that we consumers have to pay more and more....
