Fake News: sleepydevil’s CDP Statement

To begin with, I’m not someone that has a good command of English. Through this journey of using blogger as a platform to jot down my thoughts, I’m really thankful and fortunate to learn from many wise seniors along the way. While I do not consider myself as a blogger or writer, I’m heartened that some readers enjoy my post. It’s really encouraging to receive emails from readers as well as comments from various seniors around that educate me through their series of informative articles and comment. Recently, I’ve chanced upon a pretty significant amount of ‘fake news’ lurking...

Peace Of Mind and Emergency Funds

I’ve come across this question several times as the amount of cash I’ve indicated seems relatively low in comparison with my invested capital. ‘Do I have an Emergency Funds available?’The answer is, Yes. I do.  I’ve also indicated this at the bottom of my page on ‘Portfolio’: Portfolio you see here does not include emergency funds, CPF funds or any other form of money required for daily expenses. Funds/equities here are purely my investment portfolio which I’ve established when I’m 19 years old back in 2017. Also, should the market evaporate completely, I will not starve because of what that...

Polytechnic Student with $3.63 As Net Worth – 1 Year Later

Some readers would have known about this when I wrote about my The 19 Year Old Year Review, Reflection & 2018 Resolution earlier. I must first state that, I belong more to the earn more camp rather than the save more camp in this aspect. But this does not mean that I’m not saving, but I do have weak spots too. So do I belong to both camps? By earning more, it makes it easier for you to afford things that you originally want to. I’ll put into a simple example based on a fix percentage. Assuming I’m taking...

SGR’s Analysis (FA, TA) – Buying some dustbins in Wisma

I was just talking about increasing dividend income in my portfolio update earlier for February. Screenshot taken from “Portfolio – February 2018” Many would also be aware that I’ve been trying to add onto my holdings whenever I see some value or that Mr Market like what Benjamin Graham stated in his book ‘The Intelligent Investor’ is being moody or irrationale.And in a blink of eye, only days into March.It happened. Mr Market seem to be a little pessimistic about Starhill Global REIT and it’s shareholder is being punished for this. I took this opportunity presented by Mr Market...

Tokyo, Japan (Autumn 2017) – Part 2

Firstly, I would need to apologize as I’ve forgotten about the continuation of the earlier post on Tokyo (Autumn) – Part 1. Please forgive me and allow me to continue today, after almost two months and I’m missing Tokyo :( Day 4:Harajuku/Meiji Shrine:Meiji Shrine is located just outside Harajuku station.

My 19 Year Old CPF Account – For Millenials and Young Adults

Being a Singaporean, we’re all exposed to CPF the very moment you commence work. But once again, I believe many would have heard this from the seniors Singaporeans and even to some millennial whom have just started out with their part time job. Central Provident Funds – CPF (from CPF Official site) “My hard-earned cash are all locked up in the CPF”  A slight variation to the younger ones that I’ve heard many times personally: “I want my 20% salary in cash, why did they take it away? I’m working hard for it!” These are the many who felt...

Analysis on Wilmar

I realized that I’ve yet to seriously share a full post analysis on Wilmar on my blog yet. I’ve shared on numerous occasions that Wilmar is a company that I will like to build my positions on so long the price provides me with an attractive valuation.

Some might wonder.. Why Wilmar?Wilmar doesn’t gives attractive dividend, do they?The answer is....
