Sell off some stocks

Today, I liquidated about 20% of my portfolio in two stocks, for some modest profits. The two stocks are a commodities stock and a defensive construction stock. When it comes to selling off stocks, while one could possibly wait for stock prices to go higher, in today’s stock market, I believe in “making hay while the sun shines”. You may think that 20% is quite a substantial percentage of my portfolio and yes I sold this 20% stock to free up liquidity to add to my savings. I have bought into some stocks during the year thinking that the...

Biosensors International Group (“BIG”) stock

When Biosensors International Group (“BIG”) stock headed to close off last week with a good showing at $0.98, I was quite happy for the stock. You see, I have actually had some stocks of BIG stock; however these stocks were bought at high premiums even over the $0.98 price which BIG closed at last week, hence I was thinking that at least on paper, my non-profits would be reduced. The showing of BIG stock at $0.98 was indeed impressive, considering that BIG stock traded around $0.80 quite some time back. Prior to the release of BIG’s latest quarterly results,...

Three Singapore Stocks to benefit from URA Masterplan effect

Ever since the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) released its draft Masterplan for Singapore, stocks analysts from brokerage firms and banks have come out in full droves to give their takes on which Singapore stocks would benefit from the draft Masterplan. Okay, before I go into the above, let me just share with you my personal take on the draft Masterplan. I just feel that in general, our country is already quite built-up and hence those scare pockets of greenery should be preserved. I know that there are plans in the draft Masterplan to do up some green spaces but...

Of Goldman sachs and Blumont, Asiasons and LionGold stock

We know that SGX is currently looking into what caused the trio of the “BAL” penny stocks (Blumont, Asiasons and LionGold) to go south, wiping off billions from the stocks markets. I think that until the investigations results are out, the BAL stocks will trade in a consolidating manner. Now, as a result of an ongoing law suit between a rich lady and Goldman sachs, there has been some speculation that there may be a link between Goldman sachs and the BAL penny saga. From what I read, it has to do with some credit lines being cut off...

A cost-effective idea to being Healthy

The very first key plank of a strategy to building wealth is to Save. Most people have the idea that the more one earns, the more monies he will have. Well, in general though this is quite true, there is a quantifier to the above statement and that quantifier is that provided the person saves. And if a person is to save diligently and invest wisely; he is going to increase or even multiply his wealth. So how does one save? One saves by simply reducing his expenditures. So I believe that if there are opportunities for us to...

The next Investment Strategies

It has really been some time since I picked up an investment book to learn about fundamental analysis when I began my investment journey. It has also been quite some time since I have been investing and trading. Having garnered both experience and knowledge, I have formulated my own trading strategies. I am contented to find my strategies working quite well. My strategies are quite simple and as I am not a professional trader, it takes some time for my strategies to yield profits; in other words, I need to have some holding power for my strategies. I am...

The Greatest form of Wealth

I have always feel blessed to be in relatively good health overall. I have also always not taken good health for granted. I exercise as and when I can, trying to jog at least once a week; for instance, I went for a jog last night despite feeling very tired from the long hours sitting in front of the computer and from enduring the nonsense in the office. I have also always tried to stick to a good diet; one that does not consist of chemicals, preservatives, too much oil, sugar or salt and one that is focused on...

Singapore Stocks 2013 year-end rally?

This morning, I opened the newspapers and read that some analysts are forecasting that there will not be really a year-end rally for Singapore stocks unlike that for year 2012. The analysts interviewed predicted that stocks may just inch up slowly to the effect that the STI benchmark would hover around 3,200. Indeed, I shared the analysts’ views that stocks here may not be experiencing a bull run to cap off year 2013. At the start of year 2013, we have analysts in full droves, mostly predicting that year 2013 will be capped off by a STI which could...

Business Singapore

I have posted an earlier post regarding the fact that I have not seen Dominic Loh (the studious, boyish and handsome Channel NewsAsia host) fronting Business Singapore for quite a while. I have also shared in the same post that there is now a new anchor called Dawn Tan fronting the same show. I have received a comment to my earlier post and the name of the person who made the post is “Dawn Tan”. I am not sure whether “Dawn Tan” is really the new female host who have now fronted Business Singapore and whom I have shared...

Stocks in Focus

Olam stock price has been slowly creeping up from the oversold region with its 5 days-moving-average creeping up its 10-days-moving averages from below. At $1.53, Olam’s stock price is still below the 200- days-moving averages. Some analysts are quite bullish about Olam, giving the stock a price target of $2. Looking at the fundamentals and technical of this stock, I believe Olam stock can continue to head up in stock price. Breadtalk’s stock price is squeezed in a Bollinger-Band-squeeze, from what I know of technicals, Breadtalk’s stock price of 15 Nov 13 seems to imply that the stock price...

Yongnam stocks: why I bought?

I have bought some lots of Yongnam stock yesterday at $0.24. Being an average retail investor and holding average pay, I will always exercise great diligence when it comes to investing as if the entry into the stock is not good, it will just means that I am throwing away my monies. So with some spare liquidity freed from liquidating some of the stocks in my portfolio, I am looking at some range of stocks to buy. There are some stocks which are appealing but the stock markets are such that an investor may be taken back by surprise...

Stock Opinions

If you are a regular reader, you would have known that I do not really always offer my own recommendations of what stocks to buy. When I do give an opinion of a stock, I would make sure that my opinion is supported by a fact. So what are facts? When I say a particular stock A is going to go up in price, it is an opinion. However when I say, after looking at a technical chart, that A is trading above its 200-days moving average, that is a fact. And an opinion supported by a fact could...

Motivation of Investing

I was still deep in my slumber this morning when my alarm clock rang. With a grouch, I went down my bed and turned the alarm clock off, thinking it was still early. I went back to sleep. Then after some time, I was awakened. I looked at the alarm clock and shouted “Oh no”. Immediately, I brushed my teeth, dressed up, packed my breakfasts and carried out my other chores before walking with a spring to the MRT station to catch a train to work …… After the above hectic schedule, I reached the office, a place which...
