Quick Thought On Early Morning Of Saturday

Finally, weekend is here and we are able to rest our body and soul (except for those whereby weekend or weekdays doesn’t make a difference to them, you know who you are ;-)) Woke up earlier and some thought came to mind and hence this post. My thought is : does long term value investing strategy works for small retail investors? What I meant by long term is really into years or tens of years. If the invested capital is not big enough, even though we know ultimately the shares could jolly well head to the north but does...

Interesting Findings On Local Retail Investors’ Blogging statistics

Ever since I kicked off my mini shares investment venture, reading other peers’ blogs become my daily routine. In fact, I am pleasantly surprised that there are quite a number of savvy retail investors who are pro-bloggers too. Also, quite a number of the blogs that I’ve read on daily basis are very intriguing, to say the least. Hence, I thought it is a good idea to summarise some of the interesting findings from the local investor bloggers. Here we go: 1. Most of the bloggers are male (and majority are young working adult), I would say 90/10 (80% are male). I think...

Investing Lesson From "Edge of Tomorrow"

Just back from the premiere screening of Edge of Tomorrow (Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt), courtesy of MoovieSpy (to find out more how to get free blockbuster movie tickets every week, check out my earlier post here). I am a movie buff and especially like the ground hog day theme of movie (like to see how they unravel the web of repetitive scenes with a twist along the way and yet managed to patch it back together again at the end…). Ok, enough of the movie, the theme of this post is more of what investing lesson I’ve learned...

My Next Target – KSH Holdings (ER0.SI)

It has been almost a month since my last purchase, which is small odd lot of Facebook share on 29th April 2014. My next target is KSH Holdings (ER0.SI), in Real Estate Development Industry. I’ve briefly run through their 2013 financial reports and it seems to pass all my personal “value stock” assessment indicators. To top it off, it is in line with Analyst’s (OCBC) BUY signal. KSH Holdings is currently traded at SGD0.54 and I am trying my hand on SGD0.53 (via my CPF fund). Some key indicators of the stock that interests me: 1. Revenue and Net Profit...

Yeay! First Dividend Cheque!!!

Yesterday, I’ve finally received the very first dividend cheque (for Baker Technology Limited) in my entire life. Being a small retail investor, the amount on the cheque is negligible, might be even lower than some of you folks’ investment commission fee. However, I am still very happy as it is not the amount that counts, it is the SIGHT of real passive income that count. I am pretty sure that this is just the beginning and I hope to be able to build up a size-able portfolio (both in cash and CPF fund) to accumulate more such dividend income (hopefully)....

The best local blog aggregator for personal finance bloggers

If you chanced upon my blog through a blog aggregator, I am sure you know which one I am talking about (as so far I’ve only joined one local blog aggregator). Yes! I am referring to The Finance. If you own a personal finance blog or website and have yet to be part of this community (I preferred to call it a community instead of an aggregator), you are recommended to do so. It is free to join and the benefits (especially the referral traffics) is tremendous (of course, I am assuming that you are writing quality and useful posts already,...
