Portfolio Management Cross Market Cycles Of Bulls And Bears. Last Bull-Bear vs. Current Bull - Next Bear

Current Portfolio value ($) as of 30 Oct 2018 at closing market stock prices.


  1. Unbearable or enduring pain on paper losses. Choose either one. Unbearable may reach a trigger that you cut losses to relieve your unbearable pain even Panadols doesn't help anymore.

  2. Will be bearable if the stocks still pay dividends in the worst of times.

    In 2008/2009/2010, my dividend payments received were the highest in my historical records.

    Actually i was little surprised.

    Because capital employed in stock was the highest- about 4 to 5 times in absolute value in the past.

    So the really rich don't even need to look at the dividend payments.

    i know of a quite rich family who monthly living expenses can be covered by dividends received from "everywhere".

    Who are we?


    Nowhere near them.

    We can talk and talk male chicken only.

    To let go steam or what?


    To enjoy the journey of life struggles and challenges of daily survival, which the very rich do not experience or worry about or even think about.

  4. Hi there,

    May I know which author’s form of retirement planning/ drawdown do you subscribe to?

    1. Read? Do We Plan For Our Own Retirement Based On Other People To Provide You The Number?

      So far; I still prefer this model after searching through the cyber world and NLB bookshelves on adequacy for retirement planning.

      This model:

      The Balance Sheet

      A more sophisticated way to measure the success of a retirement portfolio is the one used by large pension plans. You compare what's called the actuarial present value of your assets and liabilities. The twist: Instead of looking at current assets and liabilities, you look at the value of all your expenses in retirement as a lump sum as compared with the value of all your assets as a lump sum.

      Read? It’s safe to invest entire life savings in stocks. But it can be safer!!! (4)

  5. Thanks! What consists of your non-volatile assets? Are stocks like Keppel considered volatile?

    1. All stocks by nature can be volatile.

      My non volatile assets are cash and CPF

    2. Even bonds can be volatile and dangerous too.

      In fact i prefer stocks to bonds as both are actually "dangerous" to one's loss of capital.

  6. Which book can you find “The Balance Sheet” from?

    Thanks in advance Uncle CW!
