Our 1st Value/Growth Investing Workshop

Although I have already conducted a few seminars this year, it is been a while since I have an actual sharing session. But with the creation of our upcoming database website, Simple Investor SG and I felt that we should not be just be marketing the website without doing more. Thus, we will be conducting a Value/Growth Investing Workshop together with the launch of our database website. This Value/Growth Investing Workshop focuses on  the core concepts of Value and Growth Investing. By combining real life experience with the backbone of each investing style, this workshop aims to bring investors...

An Interview with a Financial Service Agent

Having done many interviews with bloggers and other exceptional retail investors, I thought it will be a fresh change to have an interview with someone in the financial service sector. Furthermore, T.U.B Investing is always about stocks and investing, so talking about personal finance will be hopefully bring about something different. Therefore, I decided to interview my friend, Poh Lin (Poh). Other than being my financial service agent, he is also my ex-colleague, a fellow investor and a very good friend. Currently he is also a collaborator for my investing workshops, such as the one that will be coming...

Want I Really Wanted To Do…

When I started this blog, I just wanted to share what I knew about investing. But as I got more involved within the investing scene in Singapore, I felt that there was a lack of understanding towards investing. Scenario that I came across resulting in me having these thoughts: Investors start asking if a particular hot counter (that is no longer hot) can be invested, because its price has suddenly dropped. Investors wanted more returns. This resulted in them getting scammed by others as they go for impossible guaranteed returns unless the person is Warren Buffett. Investors just want...

An Interview with the Stanley of "Value Invest Asia"

I met Stanley at an meet up organised by InvestingNote previously. Both of us arrived fashionably late and I was quite surprised when he introduced himself. This is because, at that time, I was already following Value Invest Asia Facebook Page and reading about their regular write-ups. Through our conservation, I find out that he is also a CFA and is very knowledgeable about valuation techniques. I also understand that he is also writing on a book – “Value Investing in Asia : The Definitive Guide to Investing in Asia” – that will only be launched in November. You...

This is the "Tech Firm" I invested in!

It has been some time since I wrote anything. I have ideas for articles but I do not have the time to write! My life has just been too busy lately, especially when there is an increase in workload and also preparation for my new home. Furthermore, “Battling on 4 fronts” has also kept me to be on my toes. At least 1 battle is over and I had 4 lots of Netlink Trust. Another battle will end soon and hopefully the outcome will be favorable. As of now, I hope you will spent some time reading about this...

Cryptocurrency – For The Daredevils Only

Having read about cryptocurrency on Straits Time (1 and 2), I think it is widely misrepresented. There are some truth in these articles but I believe the concept of asking people to invest in this product is simply just wrong as of NOW. Reasons being: Marketing being root of all evil. I think cryptocurrency is a disruptive technology on cash. But people seem to have misunderstood the use of cryptocurrency. It started as a form of payment and not investing. But a lot of websites started marketing it as a form of investment product (due to cryptocurrency being subjected to free...

Battling On 4 Fronts

Other than busy with changes in T.U.B Circle and Super Scorecard, I have also gotten my keys to my HDB BTO flat. Thus, these few weeks I will be extremely busy and I apologize for a lack of updates in this blog. But don’t worry, as the post on the upgraded scorecard and the post on the new “technology” counter that I invested in will be out soon! Nowadays, market has been stagnant and at times, seems to be on the downtrend. Many of my watchlist counters’ prices are at very tempting level for me to enter. But my...

FANG and BAT – A Must Know In 2017

Do you know what is FANG and BAT? Do you know them? If you are currently reading this via my facebook page, you will already be using one of them. FANG is currently the acronym for four high performing technology stocks in the US market – Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google (now Alphabet, Inc.).   On the other hand, BAT is currently the acronym for the 3 top technology stocks in the China market – Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent.   I believe the following technology stocks should also be mentioned – Apple, Microsoft, Tesla, JD.com and Netease.

3 Things I Learnt About REITs Masterclass

When I was approached by Chlorophyll Inc to help them review about their REITs Masterclass course, I am actually quite reluctant. This is because I do not really invest in REITs and I am more interested in capital gain. Furthermore, B has also gave his review. Therefore, I wondered what else could I offer to the readers? Nevertheless, I decided to give the course a try in order to become a more “complete investor” and also hopefully to provide the readers with another perspective of the REITs Masterclass course. Since I had completed the course, here are 3 things I...

An Interview With "Simple Investor SG"

For this month interview, I will be interviewing “Simple Investor”. He is the owner of the Simple Investor SG website, which provides the “Full Analysis V14“. We actually knew each other when he came to my Sharing Session last year. But our friendship only developed when we found each other on the InvestingNote platform again early this year. His investing style was more directed towards growth counters with a business edge, while I am influenced more by value investing and contrarian thoughts. Despite us continuing to agree to disagree on many aspects of our individual investing methods, but he...

My 10% Portfolio – Changes After 2 Quarters

It has been almost 2 quarters and the time has come again to review my 10% portfolio again. Before I go straight into the counters in my portfolio, it is important to note and emphasize on the following: 1. This portfolio review is calculated from the start of the year and the aim is to review the total portfolio gain after 1 year. 2. Some of the counter’s initial share prices are their respective share prices at the start of this year (Especially those counters in this post). 3. The gain and loss stated is just a simple calculation...

Random Thoughts In My Mind

As an investor, you will always run into many thoughts that will influence you and make you think much more. So these are the thoughts I had over the length of this week… Concentration vs Diversification It has been rather dull lately while waiting for Fed to announce the increase in interest rate. Regardless, the Stocks in Singapore did not move much. Rather, it seems that the US market is beginning to be on a downtrend. Nevertheless, my mind is quite focus on reducing the number of counters in my portfolio and increasing my warchest. One of the reason...

Investing in Hong Kong Listed Firms

Many of you will have heard about my reluctance of investing in S-chips. Thus, my investment into Hong Kong Listed Firms will most probably have shocked you, since many of the Hong Kong Listed Firms are located or have affiliations in China. Do read this post to understand the initial reasons I invest in US and Hong Kong counters. In addition to the reasons in the post, another factor is my work. My current work requires me to understand the culture of China companies and the China companies financial. Through the process of learning, I understand why there are...

Technical Analysis – My Point Of View

I bet you have heard me saying, “I know nuts about TA (aka Technical Analysis)”. I also don’t know what pink line, blue line and purple line is about. I also don’t understand how drawing a cup can help me with the trade. And this is the craziest, how does a dragonfly help to trade? But I do feel I know something about technical analysis and that is “Support”. This is not done by drawing any lines on the chart. But this done by using your eyes! In my smartphone, I have this app where I watchlist over 40...

This Comeback Kid Rises 20%!

Over the last 2 days, the market seem to have become “happier”. But at the back of my mind, I am always having a cautious view – “Expect the Unexpected”. Do note that “Comeback Kid” is a nickname that I give to a counter that I had divested completely, and re-purchased at a later date. The previous “Comeback Kid” was Singhaiyi Group Ltd, which I had written in the previous post.   For this post, the “Comeback Kid” is TTJ Holding Ltd (aka TTJ). I really regretted selling this counter. My actions were largely influenced by the “noises” after TTJ announced...
