My 1st Post of 2017

130320132638-nyse-nasdaq-620xb.jpg

I will just like to apologize for the lack of post for the last 2 weeks. Other than taking the holiday breaks, I am busy learning about US Stock Market. As I have emphasized so many times, I intend to invest in the US Stock Market in the very near future. Many will ask why will I invest in the US Stock Market now, when Dow Jones Index is at all time high? There are 2 reasons. Firstly I … [Read more...]

My Roller-coaster Ride with Sabana REIT

Before I start, it will be good to note that I am a noob at REIT. I have not come up with a method of how to value REIT. So read this with a pinch of salt... Prior to Sabana REIT recent rights issue, I have always kept a watch on it. Although I always understand how lousy the Sabana REIT management team is, I still feel there is always a price for Sabana REIT. Furthermore, I am always trying … [Read more...]

Additional Consideration For The Plan Since Fed Raise Interest Rate

As announced on 15 Dec 2016,  Fed raises interest rate. There was also some indication that it will continue to raise interest rate for 3 times in the year 2017. Do note that "debt" stated in this post below relates to "bank borrowings" and "interest bearing debt". How will this impacted my plan? For those companies that are significant leveraged, their net profit will be impacted … [Read more...]

End Year Review of The Value Portfolio

It has been a long time since I wrote anything on The Value Portfolio. Nevertheless, this should be the final review of The Value Portfolio in 2016. Before that, I will like to state my expectation for the next year - I want to achieve a gain in excess of 10% for The Value Portfolio in 2017. This may not be significant to many, but I consider this to be really tough considering how our … [Read more...]

"Which Counter Should I Sell?"

I am very vexed recently because I needed more money to purchase new value opportunities and also average down my existing holdings. Thus I was trying to find out which counter in my portfolio should I sell in order to recycle my cash. I had some advise on Facebook and InvestingNote platform. The discussion was to look at the opportunity cost. However, with a hybrid approach (that means I … [Read more...]

a1.jpg

Do note that there are some inaccuracies from the expected figures stated in the previous post on BBR Holdings (S) Ltd as pointed out by SG Thumbtack Investor. I will be pasting the comments here for easy viewing: In addition to what he commented, I like to emphasize that this analysis is based on the fact that: - Lakelife Executive Condo is fully sold by the 4th Quarter of 2016; - All revenue … [Read more...]

Sorry for the inconvenience caused. However, my conclusion stands - there is no turning back! Recently this company caught my eye when someone compared it to TTJ Holdings Ltd on … [Read more...]

"Something is brewing for this Company…"

There is something happening in this company. The company is Chuan Hup Holding Ltd and the last post I have written about it was a long time ago. Currently I am making paper losses currently. The reason I continue to hold on to it is because: The conservative management - The management has never tried to grow aggressively despite having so much cash, but they are also not worried to … [Read more...]

Further Analysis to a Straits Time Article

Just saw this article on Straits Times with the headline, "ABSD deadline fast approaching, but developers stay cool". Thus, I felt that it is good to find out who are the developers of these properties. After all, I do have numerous developers in my portfolio (most probably will do an update on my portfolio soon) and hopefully none of the properties belong to the developers I … [Read more...]

"This is the Gem I was talking about"

Wheelock-a.jpg

Previously, I had said that through the InvestingNote platform, I was able to find a gem from one of the thread discussion. I had also talk about this company in another of my previous post. This company is Wheelock Properties (Singapore) Limited. In the past, I was very skeptical about this company as its ultimate shareholder, Wheelock and Company Limited, is located in Hongkong. I … [Read more...]

I Managed To Close All My Positions Using Deep Value Strategy

untitled.png

If you have read about my previous post about changing plans, I have finally did it. I had CLOSED all my positions in my portfolio that was involved in the deep value strategy. I have always emphasize that this is a high risk, high return strategy. However, during such bad times, I came to a realisation that eventually all the stocks in SGX will be in deep value. In that situation, will you … [Read more...]

I have been using InvestingNote!

Recently, I have been using InvestingNote actively, much more than Facebook. I was initially very skeptical about InvestingNote, thinking it was just another website/app about stocks flooding with investing/trading courses and news. But how wrong I was? Ever since I started using InvestingNote, I realised I have spent much lesser time on Facebook. It has currently become the most active … [Read more...]

Logo.jpg

Update 17 Nov 2016: Please note that as per Scorecard comparison below, Amara Holdings Ltd should deserved a "yellow cell" for having the lowest Last 12 Months PE.

Nevertheless, its Last 12 Months PE is still the 2nd lowest. If you remember my last … [Read more...]

Are you prepared for Trump?

Trump claims the White House. That must spell disaster for the market, right? What a lie. Not only did the market not crash, it reacted well to President Trump. Bloomberg didn’t think the market would be remotely excited about Trump as the president. How wrong that was. No one took Trump seriously when he first started. How wrong that was too. Now, we think Asia is in trouble because … [Read more...]

"One with the F&B Business That Got Listed Recently"

katrinagroupltd.png

I thought about whether I want to really write about this "falling knife" since it only gotten listed recently. Writing it may make it worse for the existing shareholders. My rationale for looking at this stock was because: 1. It is in the food and beverage business - something my portfolio is lacking and something I am interested in. The price has been falling - After reaching the … [Read more...]
