My S.W.O.T Analysis for Hanwell Holdings (DM0)


Introduction It’s the Great Singapore Sale, a lot of selling down of penny stocks in the market, but it also represents an opportunity to catch some stocks on fire sale. Sometimes things in a business change so fast that its share price doesn’t do it justice. For starters, Hanwell’s Cash per Share is $0.3069 and current share price stands at $0.2800. How could I not look into this company when … [Read more...]

Simplify Your Research With 3R

My Bull Case For AEM Holdings (AWX)


Introduction When the new management (Lok Wai San & Albert Ng)  took over in 2011, they began a multi-year corporate restructuring process and invested heavily in R&D at the expense of short term pain (FY12,13,14 net loss was -S$1.38m, -S$4.07m, and -S$34.6m respectively). In light of recent events, it seems that the efforts of management has paid off and AEM is ready to rise from the … [Read more...]

Passive Income Is Overrated – Here’s Why

Passive income is overrated. Everybody is talking about passive income, and it is quite silly of me to swim against the current. But I feel that this is a topic that deserves more attention from the other standpoint. To put it out there, I’m not against passive income. But rather, something bigger, and something more important. I found that many supporters of passive income are supporting it just … [Read more...]

It’s so easy to sell the dream that investing is the way to go if you want to achieve those things. We all know the importance of investing, but question is, how do you begin investing if you don’t have any money to begin with? Investing is a lot about money … [Read more...]

“I have always found it profitable to study my mistakes” – from Reminiscences of a Stock Operator “Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it” – George Santayana With that in mind, I decided that it would be a good opportunity to review my losses after investing in Singapore stocks for 3 years.

Musings of a Young Investor: What is the Price of YOUR Financial Freedom?

Financial Freedom is the endgame of most if not all investors, including myself.

My Bull Case For Sarine Technologies (U77)


Introduction I first took notice of Sarine Technologies (“Sarine”) in early 2014. What captured my attention, aside from its skyrocketing share price ($0.10 in 2009 to $3.20 in 2014), was its stellar financial performance ever since the company changed its business model in 2009 from one-time sales to one that is more recurring in nature. However, like what Warren Buffett famously said, “Price … [Read more...]

My S.W.O.T Analysis For Jumbo (42R)


When I think of Jumbo, the first thing that comes to my mind is their chilli crabs! Whenever I think of it, I can’t help but want to dip their delicious fried mantou buns into that savoury chilli sauce!

This week, we take a … [Read more...]

One Big Lesson I Learnt From Brexit


With all these drama in the market, there was one big lesson I learnt from Brexit. Shut out the noise. Look at a quick search I made on ‘Brexit’, and you’ll see fear painted all over the internet with headlines that would easily scare investors out of their rational minds. To the untrained eyes, all they see is fear and losses. The trained sees the opportunities in crises. While the news … [Read more...]

Financial Graduation – Have You Graduated?

Singapore is great at churning out high-quality academic graduates but I wonder how many of us have Financially Graduated. Of course, the term ‘Financial Graduation’ doesn’t properly exists because people don’t care enough about it. (And perhaps because I just came up with it.) Financial Graduation is simply the progression from a lower tier to a higher tier of learning. Very much similar to the … [Read more...]

Musings of a Young Investor: Starting Early vs Starting Late


I met an old friend for supper recently to catch up on each other’s lives. Naturally, the topic of investing came up, and my friend (who is the same age as I) made the following comment: “Bro, why do you invest so young? Go enjoy your youth while you still can! No point investing when you’re young with so little amounts, you won’t get far. I’d rather spend money now travelling the world, eating … [Read more...]

My S.W.O.T Analysis For Wee Hur (E3B)


Wee Hur first caught my eye when I decided to play around with Benjamin’s Graham Net-Net filter after reading Deep Value Investing by Jeroen Bos. If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it! It features a lot of case studies where the author applied net-net filter and his thought process behind the investment. At first glance, Wee Hur wouldn’t interest you at all just by looking at its … [Read more...]

3 Things To Do In A Quiet Market

Let’s admit it, not every day will present an opportunity to buy stocks as an investor. There are periods of droughts and periods of abundance of cheap stocks.

But remember, it’s not wrong to hold onto cash. Your cash does not … [Read more...]

My S.W.O.T Analysis For Sheng Siong (OV8)


I think most people would be able to relate to Sheng Siong because they’ve probably seen it around or shopped in it before. It’s quite surprising how people show little interest to things they see or visit every other day. I thought it would be quite interesting to look into Sheng Siong’s business since I buy my favourite sweets there from time to time. Initially I didn’t think much of Sheng Siong … [Read more...]
