Singapore TOTO
Dear readers, yesterday morning, looking at the not so long queues, I entered into the fray, not into the MMA ring but I bought $2 worth of TOTO, something which I have not been doing for a very long time. The rest is as they say history since like many of those who buy TOTO, I did not win any prizes, only managing to have two of the numbers matching the selected winning TOTO numbers.

Dear readers, have you noticed the change in blog description at the top of Singapore Stocks Investing blog? The previous header read “SINGAPORE STOCKS INVESTING (“SSI”) is a magazine-styled online portal providing insights into Singapore Stocks Investing”. But now, look again at the header. Yes, a brand new header for Singapore Stocks Investing blog which reads: “Singapore Stocks Investing made RELEVANT AND SIMPLE”.

You may ask what has prompted me to revamp the header or tagline for Singapore Stocks Investing? Well, the main motivation is you, readers who have quietly stand by me through your continuous readership of Singapore Stocks Investing. Through your comments and shares on Singapore Stocks Investing Facebook. Your support is important and goes a long way into motivating me to produce even greater contents right here on this blog for you readers with an aim to better financial education for retail investors in Singapore equities.

I have been extremely busy at work, juggling many portfolios at once and it does not help when the boss said all these portfolios are urgent and with that, it can be quite challenging prioritizing. And amidst all these urgent and important work are the daily “fire fighting” tasks to settle. It can be overwhelming at times but I know that I have to take it as I am an employee.

singapore stocks
Dear readers, there was a recent piece of article by Kishore Mahbubani which struck a little controversy by the message which some interpreted as “Small states should act like small states”. Actually, this whole issue is just about small states having to be prudent when it comes to interacting with the larger states while standing one’s ground.

Singapore stocks
Dear readers, I have been working non-stop over work. If you ask me how work could change a person, I would say hair loss, big belly, coffee and ageing. First, hair loss due to lots of stress over work timelines. Second, big belly due to sitting behind a computer and attending long hours of meetings (which do not necessarily are productive). Big belly from going home late at night when the only viable options are fast food restaurants. Thirdly, coffee, I have drink lots of it, increasing my uptake and especially drink very strong coffee to enhance my work performance when it comes to important assignment. And last but not least, ageing. Ageing due to late nights of sleep, not from blogging here on Singapore Stocks Investing, but working late at night on work assignments.

I have not been blogging here on SINGAPORE STOCKS INVESTING for really quite sometime. My last published post here on this blog was dated 21 March 2017 and hence I have really “disappeared” from financial blogosphere for more than a week. So what has happened to Tom K during this period?

Well, health problems have stopped me from blogging. For the past week, I was really very not well so much so that I slept for most of two full days last week. Usually, I would look at financial and investment news from Singapore and overseas regularly for updates many times a day and I could not do that when I was not well last week. What I managed to do was to just glance quickly at the local and overseas stock prices of counters which I bought at the end of trading day.

Rather than spamming every subscriber’s email inbox, I believe in quality content, and hence would rather take some time to craft a useful and meaningful email newsletter to you rather than filling your inbox with some emails to sign up for another course or buy some products.

My principles behind the setting up of the Singapore Stocks Investing blog are clear: to share with readers, investors the way to profit from the Singapore stocks markets through what I have learned and experienced from the Singapore Stocks Markets. Throughout my blogging journey, sharing my investment and trading thoughts, I have received plenty of positive comments though I have received a few comments which are not as positive. These not so positive comments stem mainly from two views: one that do not agree with the techniques which I have shared and the other is that Singapore Stocks Investing is about attracting web traffic.

My motivations to excel in Investing revisited

As much as I am passionate about blogging, investing and sharing my financial experience with all of you, I am still a full-time employee. My full-time employment income is still my main source of income hence I still do need to focus on my day-time job. As shared with readers, despite my capabilities and hard work, my career is not smooth. I am also an employee who do not know how to play corporate politics and hence at best, I could only try to create some opportunities at work through breaking through all the politics and convincing my boss and my boss’ boss that I am an “undervalued stock” which should be “fully valued”.

How an average-salaried employee can still win the “game of wealth”?

Despites getting As for most of my subjects during my schooling years and topping the Maths and Science subjects, I hold a modest job. Nevertheless, I do not blame others for I do not have the personality to play the corporate game well. It is also not constructive to recall how colleagues who are less capable than I have gone on with promotions after promotions in their career. In general, my classmates of around the same capability as myself have already gone on to become top scholars and young Directors while those with average grades and more “gung-ho” have already become leaders in their own rights, in their own fields.

The Financial Journey of Tom K …….. EXPOSED (Part 4 & Final Part)

The following is a continuation of the sharing of my financial journey. You can read on Part One, Part Two & Part Three in the blog’s archives.

But is Investing really that easy?

With my first investment success, I invested and traded in more stocks, not to delude myself and readers, I profited in some positions while not profiting in others; but I am starting to see my overall profits improve as I educate myself more in both financial and technical analysis, reading of financial articles and schooling myself in the whole spectrum of financial education. I count Robert T. Kiyosaki as one of my favorite financial authors.

The Financial Journey of Tom K …….. EXPOSED (Part 3)

The following is a continuation of the sharing of my financial journey. You can read on Part One & Part Two in the blog’s archives.

An Even Greater Financial Awakening

Even though I had now a trading account, it remained pretty much a “dormant” account. It was years after the set-up of the trading account that I experienced the impetus to learn investing and to take investing action ……..

The Financial Journey of Tom K …….. EXPOSED (Part 2)

The following is a continuation of the sharing of my financial journey. You can read on Part One in the blog’s archives.

Financial Awakening: My First Investment

As soon as I stepped into society to start work, the “lust” of earning more monies soon overwhelmed me so much so that I bought my first investments in a fund from a well-known insurance company, without doing much research, from an auntie simply based on trust. The fund seems great as it had good publicity in the newspapers when it was introduced. I gave my first “investment capital” via a cheque of $8,000 to the auntie. A year later, the financial crisis struck and the rest, they say is history. I was sad to see my first investments go down below my cost as the financial crisis unfolded. Not being able to stand the emotion of holding the “soured investments”, I sold the investments and received back only $3,500 of my capital. This first investment lesson lays the seeds of my investor education: that one should take charge and be responsible for one’s own monies, and not let others do it for you. Do not entrust your monies to others based on simply trust. My first insurance policies which I have gotten once I started work were beneficial though and I add on to this slew of policies with others as my financial needs evolve with the different stations of my life.

The Financial Journey of Tom K …….. EXPOSED (Part 1)

As I have promised readers, I will share my financial journey with you for you to better understand my financial motivations as an investor and motivations of learning and sharing with all of you as a blogger. I also hope that through this sharing of my financial journey, you have a better understanding of who I am as a person and the objectives of Singapore Stocks Investing blog towards creating value to you. And here the narration of my financial journey goes, so sit back, relax and have a bag of popcorn with you:

Seeds of my Financial Education

I am born into a middle-class family. My father is a hardworking person who is capable enough to ensure his three children complete their university education through his average salary, his rigorous savings and continuous drive to upgrade his skills. My mother is a dedicated full-time homemaker who dedicates her life to the care of my siblings and I and her grandchildren. Kudos to my parents for giving me a solid financial education, in fact the most important pillar of all by stressing the importance of savings. Though we do not talk much about monies, through deeds, my parents personalize the importance of savings and they are the first teachers of my financial education. Till today, I remain largely a frugal person and have benefited much from their financial education in savings.


Dear All, throughout my blogging experience here on Singapore Stocks Investing, I have shared with readers many of the financial resources which I have benefitted from.

For the benefit of readers, I have compiled them into a listing here, for your references.

Sharing of Singapore Financial Blogs

Here at Singapore Stocks Investing, Tom K believes that when it comes to investing among retail investors, generally, it is good to read about and learn from others’ investing experience; the key is to do so with a discerning mind as we are responsible for our own investing actions and how we manage our monies. This is really the rationale behind my sharing of other financial blogs here on the blog roll that readers see on the sidebar of Singapore Stocks Investing.

Should Investors continue to invest in these two stocks?

The diversification of financial topics is well-intended so as to give a comprehensive and holistic approach and strategy towards wealth creation in Singapore for Singaporeans, Singapore-style.
