Are you a 100% fundamental investor?

Some investors I know deem themselves as fundamental investors who invest based on doing research into the fundamentals of a company and buy a stock only if they are convinced that they find great value. Many of these fundamental investors also call themselves value investors and some seem to be very proud of the fact that their investment strategies are modelled after the greatest investor of all time: Warren Buffett.

What investors need to know?

I have been saying that Singapore stocks markets is a price-taker whereas the larger overseas markets especially the US markets are the price-makers, shaping the Singapore stocks markets. For clues on how the local markets will perform for a given day, just take a look at the performance of the overseas US markets. Local investors are always looking for clues of how the local stocks markets will perform next, hence it is useful to note how US markets have been doing.

Will you still buy undervalued stocks?

Today, I was charged extra by the stall attendant of a mixed vegetable rice stall. If you have been reading my blog, you would know that I eat mixed vegetable rice for meals simply because they are generally cheap and could feed my hunger pangs. I should not elaborate further on why I was charged more as most of these reasons have been previously shared with readers.

Profitable trading is simple but not easy

Looking at some feedback which I have received for my blog, I think some readers have visited my blog to find an easy solution to profit from the Singapore stocks markets. And when they look at my posts talking about the whole concept of money management, they walk away from my blog to others, determined to read from a blog which can give them winning stock picks. I know such blogs exist, with beautiful charts and with amazing stock profit records. But for what I know, most of these bloggers may have very “deep pockets” unlike the many retail investors who are the target audience for my blog; so much so that with just say a 1% stock price appreciation, these blogger-investors can pocket few thousands of dollars in their pockets. These traders have the “bandwidth” to “cut losses” too. Do many retail investors have few hundred thousands to trade in one position? And can many retail investors afford to lose their hard-earned monies?

Should Singapore investors buy Singapore stocks now?

I was looking at some good Singapore counters and feel quite tempted to buy these Singapore stocks, offering good dividend yields and trading at good bargains now. However, I was reminded of the ongoing Greek finance saga and from what I have read on the internet, the Greek finance saga could shape the global stock markets in a way which would remind all investors of the same saga some years back; only that now, Greeks have a new government which has a different stance towards the EU bailout and the debt negotiations.

Should you invest in Singapore Stocks now? Tom K vs an Expert

The Singapore STI is currently at a high level. Should investors invest in Singapore stocks now? According to an expert, the Singapore stocks market is “cheap” trading at a P/E ratio of around 14, giving investors a dividend of 7% in general. The expert proceeded to reassure investors that rising interest rates should not worry investors as they only mean that the economy of the world is good.

What I think of Singapore stocks now?

I am not looking closely at Singapore stocks these days as the STI says it all: the STI is consolidating around a certain level and though the STI is just a basket of thirty blue-chip stocks; the sentiments are felt on all second-tier and third-tier stocks as well. Some penny stocks see heavy trading action, but I am not one who engages in too much of speculation over these stocks.

Why I believe in investing towards greater financial goals?

Investing to some is risky and this has led some to not consider investing as a path towards greater financial goals. Many have also started investing but may not have fared to their expectations in their investing journey. If you ask me, investing is not easy but I still believe in investing as a path towards greater financial goals for to me, investing is a fair way towards wealth.

The Most Important Plan in Investing

In this blog, I have mentioned that one of the most important aspects of Investing is on how we investors think and control our emotions, knowing that the stocks market is governed by two emotions: greed and fear. Though some stocks in the stocks markets appear cheap, I have told readers that we should not give in to greed as some stocks may still get cheaper. All of these I mentioned sound cliché to you, but when it comes to the most important plan in investing, do you know what it is?

Are you really an Investor?

Singapore stocks markets closed higher today, this is expected as the US stocks markets closed higher last Friday. Offshore and marine stocks are one of the top performers. It was widely reported that analysts have been saying that the sell-off in US stocks was a correction and not the beginning of a recession. So with the rebounding of the Singapore stocks markets, is it time for retail investors to go back to the stock markets and buy stocks on their cusp of their rebound?

How to know whether you are a good investor?

The Singapore stocks markets for the trading week of 13 Oct 2014 to 17 Oct 2014 has not fared very well and the reason is due to, from what I read, US stocks markets once again.

There is a Chinese saying in local stocks parlance that, in a nutshell describes the “butterfly effect” of US stocks. This is inevitable as the US is a world’s superpower and has great influences in many domains, including the stocks markets.

I am not sure how your portfolio has panned out in the aforementioned trading week. But if there is one good thing that has come out from the local stocks markets’ performance, it is this: the aforementioned trading week gives investors an opportunity to look at just how resilient their stock portfolio is.

Cheapest Singapore stock?

Yesterday, I posted a blog post on Singapore’s cheapest stock which Singapore eDevelopment stock is one of these as its stock price is $0.001. In that post, I talked about the proposed consolidation of this stock. After writing the post, I was thinking whether I have used “Cheapest” correctly. Should I use “lowest-priced” Singapore stock instead for the above post? Why do I have such thought? Well, I am really thinking when words like “expensive” and “cheap” are used, these are subjective to different investors. For example, is Golden Agriculture stock which is now below fifty cents cheap? To some, they may say it is as this price is really one of the lowest reached by the stock. For others, they may think that Golden Agriculture stock may still head south even more due to the global commodities outlook.

Which Penny stocks will be winners?

Penny stocks ruled Singapore stocks markets on 5 Aug 2014 in the top volumes list, this is what I have expected considering that the authorities are rolling out measures to rein in penny stocks by mandating that all stocks on the SGX should be trading at a minimum of twenty cents each. With this climate, penny stocks trading in my opinion, is not something I would want a large portion of my investments to be at as we must note that the current penny stocks trading is amidst the growing thoughts that the US will increase its interest rates once the bond-buying programme off the markets.

One good news for Singapore Investors

Looking at today’s Singapore stocks showing, it can be easy to link the lacklustre performance to the World Cup. World Cup is such a grand event and who can we blame for being excited about it and become less focused as a result on stocks for the time being? Nevertheless, there are not many leads for Singapore investors. Privatisation stocks focus is waning with Airasia deciding not to proceed with the acquisition of Tiger Mandalay and an offer for Stats pac chip not proceeding too.

Transport sectors stocks are also in vogue on thinking that the government will do more to improve land transport in Singapore. And favourite stocks which have been laggards like Super Group have also since rebounded.

Secrets of Trading no one tells you about: revealed

There is one secret of trading that no one really tells you about and I am going to reveal it in this article. First of all, let us observe what we usually see around us. Very common these days are advertisements we see on newpapers in which there are some stocks or investments or trading gurus saying that trading is easy and they have become millionaires by trading. Then we hear those people around us boasting how they become rich from trading, and in some cases, trading in penny stocks. These two things we see frequently may lead some retail investors to come to a conclusion that trading is easy and then they decide to “test it out” by going into the markets and then usually they do not profit from their trading.

Investment mistakes

I did some mistakes at work and clearly one of my bosses was not happy. On this, I thought to myself that making mistakes is part and parcel of success. In Investments, one is always prone to making mistakes. The most important thing is to learn from these mistakes. Personally, I have made mistakes in investments, learnt from them and have improved in my trading and investing. Success cannot be achieved without not making mistakes.

The different Psychology & Economics of Stock Investing

As a seasoned investor, I find that the markets are really quite fascinated with trading software; you know those types of trading software which have colourful candlesticks, many sloping lines and illustration like these. And that is probably why the companies behind these software keep advertising their offerings on the newspapers in the forms of free seminars. It is a psychological effect for investors to feel excited over these trading softwares which are often touted as very accurate prediction models as people always think that there is value behind those things that they do not understand.
