Journey To Retirement Part 1.3 — Genting SP

Was quite eventful for Genting SP the past 2 months.  Firstly, on 11th Nov 2016, Genting SP announced the divestment of its stake in the Jeju IR in South Korea (refer here).  Then on 15th Dec 2016, Japan Government finally legalized casino after the idea was first debated in 2013. The divestment of Jeju IR was quite a shocked to me given that next year the IR will commence operation and to divest without earning a single cent from it totally make no sense to me.  Though, the explanation given by the company — after divestment, Genting SP will...

Journey To Retirement Part 14.1 — MapletreeCom Trust

Sold 80% of the right issue allotment at $1.52, $0.10 above the right issue price of $1.42.  The reason was pretty much strategic and act accordingly to Sun Tzu Art of War (孙子兵法).  As such, the overall cost of the “Strategic” section of the portfolio went down from $0.239/share to $0.0419/share. Why 80% and not whole of everything ?   Well, the sale proceed of that 80% is just nice enough to subscribe to the right issue of Keppel DC Reit whose right issue price is at $1.155.  Normally, right issue will dilute the existing holding especially in term...

Journey To Retirement — CPFIS

10 years ago I opened my CPFIS investment account to start my journey in stocks investing with CPF money.  After a decade, the conclusion I get from those experiences is you can only achieve good return (beating that 2.5% pa on OA) if you do it correctly, that is through long-term fundamental or value investing.  There has been talk on CPFIS is not “fit for purpose”, time for review, etc lately.  Frankly speaking, I do not agree to that 100% neither do I object that 100% too. Like many others I started doing short-term investing/trading from 2006 to 2008...

Stock Incubator

Started in 2010 decided to put aside a portion of money from my trading capital to buy a stock, which I deemed could provide multi-fold return in the future, under observation.  Once certain conditions are met, the stock will be transferred to my long-term investment portfolio.  As such a move is relatively higher risk than the usual investment, only a small portion of capital is allocated to it (amount of money that I could afford to lose if things turn sour).  This is what I termed as calculated risk.  After all, nothing is risk free in this world (money...

Journey To Retirement Part 1.2 — Genting SP

2016 is the 10th year that I have vested in Genting SP share.  Bought into it in April 2006 after knowing that Singapore was going to build 2 IRs then and Genting SP was one of the company going to bid for one of the IR.  This will be the 2nd longest stock I have ever hold in investment with SingTel being the longest after holding for 14 years from start of IPO in 1993 to 2007. I was pretty confident that Genting SP will be involved in one of the IRs back in 2006 after the Government decision...

STI Expanding Triangle ?

With FTSE STI 2,800 level broken today, this has invalidated the Elliott Wave 3 previously described (What’s Next For STI ?).  However, the uptrend since the rebounding at 2,540 still yet to be invalidated.  As such, technically, STI still on the uptrend.  With wave 3 invalidated, current STI will have to reconsider as wave 2.  These wave 2 is not the typical 3-pattern (A,B,C) type but on a possible Expanding Triangle pattern. Theoretically, this is how an Expanding Triangle looks like with a 5-nodes of A,B,C,D,E then resume the previous trend. Looking at STI chart after today, 4th May...
