In short, which stock(s) should you pick to start analyzing (I am assuming you are not basing on “hear-say” type)? One of the common way that the gurus will ask you to do is to start from YOU!

How Will Your "Future You" Thank You?

This morning, when I walked passed a bus stop, the tag-line of one of the NTUC Income’s advertisement caught my eyes, it says something like “How Will Your Future You Thank You?”. The message is clear! What are we doing now will determine how our future will thank or hate us, depending on where we are then. This applies to how we invest our time/effort in our education, health (mental and physical), spiritual well being etc.. Same thing is true if we are wasting our live away now (like partying all night long), the weaken “future you” might be strangling you (as...

Great Analogy Of Company Performance Vs Its Stock Price

What I am going to share is an analogy that I’ve read from the book “Millionaire Teacher – The Nine Rules of Wealth That You Should Have Learned In School“, by Andrew Hallam. Being an half-baked Value Investor, I am totally agreeable with his analogy. For Value Investors, in the short term, the stock price might move upwards or downwards however it likes (basing on the current market’s sentiment and supply and demand) but in the long term, it will move along side with the value/assets/earning power of the business.To illustrate this point, Andrew Hallam akin the business’ performance (assets/earning power) as the...
