Dollar Cost Avg – Does it matter to invest at high or low

I was playing with excel over the weekend, and was thinking if there is any difference if one were to invest at the high, the other at the low for Dollar Cost Averaging. I downloaded the data for STI index from 2007 to now, and over these periods it is not difficult to identify the high and low. Using the monthly data, STI index hit at the high of 3805 and low at 1595. Assumptions  To invest $100 and dollar cost avg from these months onwards till today, high on Oct 2007 and low on feb 2009 Just buy,...

Warning signs from these 2 stocks before last week crash

By now most of us would have heard or seen news about the Dow Jones correction last week, and one that affects major markets including STI. No one can predict what will happen to the market next, but out of curiosity, I noticed that these 2 counters (may have more) reacted 3 days before the correction. They may be more sensitive than the rest of the counters to what’s happening, it is interesting but I am not sure if there is any correlation of any sort. Just for fun.It may be interesting to watch these 2 counters next as...

A quick look at HongKongLand

Everyone loves to buy winning stocks and for the past year, the local banking stocks have been in the limelight due to being able to benefit most from the rising interest rates. To make money in the stock market, it is not to follow where most of the crowd go, it is to identify the un-loved counters. Congrates to those who have taken the lonely journey and invest in Comfortdelgro, SingTel and SPH the past few months, you may refer to my posts on those counters.One of the counter which caught my eye was HongKong Land, however, the not...

A quick look at Perennial Holdings

In the recent months, there has been a number of share buyback for this counter and thus it got me interested to “dig” further. This counter does not fall under my normal selection as it does not meet my requirements, and certainly, it is not an income stock either as the dividend is not attractive. This counter falls into my short to medium term bucket for capital gain, which also means that I will cut loss if it goes the opposite direction. Investors who invested in this counter must have been disappointed, as shown in the chart below that...

A quick look at SPH

This is one of the counter that is not loved by investors, and this can be seen since 2016 when the share price started to correct. Many reasons have been shared by fellow bloggers on the corrections, and one of the main reason is the disruption that it faced against it’s print business. However, SPH is aware of those disruptions and have started taking initiatives to counter them. Time is needed for the organisation to turn around and time is also needed for that to be reflected in the share price. At this price, is it attractive enough for...

A quick look at Sarine Tech

Diamonds are women best friends, it will also become men’s best friend too if it is able to generate returns for them. At the current price, it is about 5% yield. Is this good enough for you?

A quick look at Singtel

Updated 17/3/2018Since my last post, I have been monitoring this counter. Just early this week, the opportunity came with the strong support at $3.34 formed. From the chart, it has tested this price range twice, thus forming a strong support. This counter has corrected for sometime, and has finally found strong support at this level.If it breaks this support level, then we will be looking at the next level of support. Do not rush in as there is also a strong resistance at around $3.65 range. (Vested) 14/2/2018SingTel share price started it’s downtrend correction from mid 2015, when the...

A quick look at Singtel

SingTel share price started it’s downtrend correction from mid 2015, when the news on the incoming 4th Telco were finally firmed. After two and half years of downward trend, recently, I had friends who came to me and told me that the share price is attractive now at about 5% dividend yield. For my own education, I decided to take a quick look. Quick FA Avg 7 years of dividends is 0.19c 15 times = $2.85 18 times = $3.42 23 times = $4.37 At today’s closing price of $3.35, do you think it’s attractive. Quick TA It has...

Recent actions from these 2 markets(Dbs, ABC, Comfortdelgro)

We are into the 2nd month of the new year, there is no change in my strategy, still very much using Prof Joel GreenBlatt’s magic formulae. I have taken less position in SG market and moved more into the Chinese market. As US is becoming more inwards, China is taking advantage of this to expand and fill these gaps. In the long run, my view is that this will be positive and will benefit the Chinese market. One can invest through the A50 or CSI300 ETF. For the SG market, I have taken profit on my DBS counter. As...
