Read? On why sound investing principles will always work??? Real People. Real Story on DBS! This ex-colleague who was some time also Uncle8888's lunch kaki. During GFC 2008/2009; he was very keen to invest bigger on DBS; but in Mar 2009 he was still waiting for DBS to reach $6 before accumulating slowly! When the market recovered he regretted big time; but; he did learn important lesson on investing! This time in Jan 2016; when DBS went below $15; he started to accumulate slowly using his CPF fund as he has already reached 55 (Feeling rich with his bigger War Chest? How often can we beat CPF OA 2.5% with blue chip yield?) In Investing; Your Account Size Really Matters! - CW8888
When DBS has crossed $19; he began to divest slowly. Uncle8888 last heard that he has fully divested all his DBS. ------------------------------------------- Now; he sianz! Real life example of retail investing. It is never easy! Who can analyze that DBS drastically raises its dividend from past year of 66 cts to $1.20 from 2018 onwards! Institutions invest along with their rules and policies; but for retails it is all in their Mind and Heart! Less Analyzing. More Investing - CW8888 Read?
