Hiatus For The Next 3 Months…

The title say it all. The reason is because I am currently taking on a new role in my working environment and I am also taking on a new role in my personal life. In addition, I am still investing, managing my FB page and the Fundamental Scorecard telegram group, writing new articles on a monthly basis for the Moat Scorecard subscribers, looking after the subscribers of Fundamental Scorecard website, and once in a while, I will still conduct courses and seminars. Just too many things.  Thus, I decided I have to take a break from writing new articles...

The Margin REIT Strategy – A Strategy In Writing (Please Complete Reading The Article!)

I am never interested in margin before meeting J. To me, I always feel human emotions are unable to control the use of margin. Leverage is such a powerful seductive tool that I do not believe any person can escape from it once he/she touches it. Similarly, to believing justice will prevail, I believe in not giving margin a second look. Nevertheless, I met J recently and he showed me how he used margin to invest and achieved 10% gain p.a. since 2016. To be honest, 10% is not huge. But a consistent 10% is a relatively good return....

I Sold All Of It!

Initially, I believed my losses to be more than 50% due to my excel tracking. But after I calculated, the losses is about 40% instead after holding for about 1.5 years. Nevertheless, it is still a major hit to my portfolio. The main reason why I decided to take the losses was due to a few reasons: – I want to have more cash for my margin REIT strategy (Do note I do not add funds to my portfolio. Thus, if I had a new idea, I will probably need to sell an old idea.) – It is not...

TVB vs Netflix

Recently, I did a poll on InvestingNote. It was an exercise to (1) remove the bias of choosing a company based on brand names and (2) choosing a company to invest in solely using financials. InvestingNote Screengrab as of 21 March 2.20pm Without the company name, most investors stated correctly that if solely based on the financials, value investor will choose Company A. Growth Investors will choose Company B. Overall, it seems that more investors prefer a stable company than one is burning cash. But I have a feeling if I reveal the names of the companies, things may...

The Happy, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

I have been thinking about what to write lately. But I seem to have ran out of ideas, although I also have a lot of other things on my mind (more on this later).Investing Is Getting Boring Since engaging in Big Ideas Investing Theory, I found myself no longer affected by daily news unless it relates to my targets or companies with my portfolio. In addition, I felt rather muted now that the market is rising. I feel like I am watching a soap opera when I look at the stock market. Is this why Gurus says “investing is...
