A Guide to Dividend Investing in Singapore Telecom Stocks

The thing about dividend investing is that there is no fix rule used to evaluate all dividend stocks. At the end of the day, dividend stocks are still stocks and they are affected by the same rules as all other stocks. Having more time during this year end break, i thought of checking out some stocks that enables me to hold 30-40% of my portfolio for longer term (compare to my trading portion). The criteria is that I should not have more than 4-5 stocks so that following up with them doesn’t take up all my days and weekends...

Trend Watch:Could this be the consolidation? $SPY $EWS

We been talking about a change in long term trend or probably a long overdue correction but  i wonder if the recent non direction will actually be the short term correction that worked off the overbought levels. SPY Weekly MACD looks to be going negative soon. But it is highly possible that will resume its MACD uptrend to show positive trend movements. That 200 EMA seems awfully difficult to be taken out. I have a hunch that we are going to higher. Read...

Trading Log:Olam Review – Wait till i sold of at a profit then congratulate me

This week’s great lesson turn out to be my Olam trade. I entered this trade looking for an upside target of 2.97. It would seem an achievable target as my entry point at 2.69 is near where the trend lines congregate. MACD looks to be putting in a nice cross for some short term uptrend. True enough, it ended positive for a while until it met some heavy resistance form from the October highs at 2.82. My decision then was to sit tight and observe if it will take out that resistance and reach my target of 2.97.  Well...

Yield Watch:A Substantial fall in SPH. Worth the pick up?

Nothing of note for a day where market continues to be directionless. However, some of you might want to see if you wanna pick up SPH after its 5.7% fall. SPH Its a drastic gap down on the charts, so much so that it burst the bottom of the price channels. I still don’t get why people buy SPH for yield.The most plausible reason is that pensioners taught this is a garment stocks that will never collapse and provides higher interest rates then what you put in banks.

Yield Watch:SPH breaks trend. Opportunity?

There are many folks that view SPH as one of those blue chips that never goes out of fashion and its a must have dividend stock. These 3 days the stock have taken a beating and presents some opportunities for folks that want to average out the price to load up. My view is that the fall should still continue and if you want to be vested in this do your due diligence as to why the price came down and your view of the company going forward. Read...

Trading Log:Ascendas REIT Review

Another week another miser trade. Based on probability of risk vs return this turn out to be a good trade. I have got nothing bad about the identification of the buy signal or the exit. It met my target. Its a low return and i should be working on a fatter channel. REITs nowadays don’t move as much as the bull market hey days but they do provide some rather predictable returns.

Trading Log:Straits Asia Trade Review

Sometimes you can rant about why there aren’t systematic trading stops on the SGX. These nifty perks enables u to get out with how much you want to lose. but in the case of my straits asia trade, you really hate it when u violated your stop loss. its a good lesson to me that trading against the trend can be dangerous. I did not notice that the trend for straits asia have changed. although the MACD looks like its possible that its gonna cut above 0, the price movement have already cut the long term moving average.

Trading Log: Review of Ascendas REIT

Granted that i would have made more if i had held on till a few days later compared to the 1.76 that i got out at, it is a right thing to do for an amateur still learning the ropes. the key here is to be discipline rather than give in to the temptation of dream profits. I saw a nice channel trade in the making and i took the plunge at 1.65. This would only consider as a C trade as i only milked 6% of profits. had i used a smaller capital i would have made peanuts...
