I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

Read?  FI or FIRE? What Next? What Other FIRE Bloggers May Have Not Mentioned These

Read? You think it is so easy to retire early???

FIRE is more than just financial readiness or financial independence! We will need solid reasons or meaningful objectives to retire early. Uncle8888's block has two early retirees but they didn't called themselves Stay-at-home-dad. Women who early retired are more likely to label themselves as housewives or stay-at-home-mum. See the gender inequality or difference. LOL!

Uncle8888 just came across another case of FIRE and then back to office. It shows that early retirement is NOT that easy. It is always more than just financial means to FIRE!

Case 6 is an interesting one as he is Trainer for Early Retirement Masterclass!

Never mind! We can always FIRE and then De-FIRE after that! LOL!

Update For Kep Corp Round 95

Thursday, 16 October 2014

Read Kep Corp : Bought @ $9.64 for Round 95

Finally after 8 years of sucking bitter Panadols to ease heartache; Round 95 has breakeven!

Trading and investing is all about market timing on our entries and exits. Got that timing wrong! Suck Panadols!

Buy back is also NOT easy!

If you have been into investing forums; you will often read that someone will shout take profits and buy back later! 

Buy back later can also get us into deep shit and suck Panadols!

Here’s How Much You’d End Up with If You Had Invested S$7,530 in DBS During 2003 SARS Period Two Decades Ago

Read? Here’s How Much You’d End Up with If You Had Invested S$20,000 in UOB a Decade Ago

Last year, we conducted such a thought experiment with Singapore’s largest bank, DBS Group (SGX: D05).

We showed that S$10,000 invested in a reputable bank would have garnered you S$25,688 in a decade.

This is NOT a thought experiment; but Real People and True Stories on DBS!

Uncle8888 invested S$7,530 in DBS and made S$43,130 in two decades or 573% ROC! 

Total dividends accumulated over 20 years is S$15,710 or 209% ROC; and it is kept safely in CPF OA earning 2.5% interests P.A. No compounding return. It is just holding on to DBS as Yield Hog over 20 years!

Investment Scams and Frauds. Any difference? Just Repeating In New Forms!

Read? Police warn of fake website claiming to help FTX investors withdraw crypto funds

Any difference?

According to the police, the fake website is supposedly hosted by the US Department of Justice and prompts FTX customers to log in to the website with their account details.

It would then claim that customers "would be able to withdraw their funds after paying legal fees".

Real People. Real Losses

CW8888: Time-sharing scam; one ex-colleague lost money his money. One agency stepped in and called for a meeting for investors to put up $5K each and collectively the agency would have enough fund to fight the case and retrieve some lost money. 

The Agency subsequently also disappeared.

Beware! There are scammers looking for a kill and scavengers looking for your dead bodies too.

Building A Resilience Or Antifragile For Retirement Income? Does It Really Matter?

Read? What Is Anti-Fragility?

Hmm ... Did Uncle8888 build a resilience or antifragile investment portfolio over 23 years as Panda/Koala in Singapore local stock?

Does it really matters?

Resilience or antifragile?

Anti-fragility goes beyond robustness; it means that something does not merely withstand a shock but actually improves because of it.

Hmm ... it looks like we have to build a resilience investment portfolio first and then we have decent level of war chest across market cycle to withstand a bear shock and deploy war chest and keep improving the robustness of our portfolio for next cycles. Tio bo?

Read? Following someone investing idea? (2)

"When you see your favourite blogger bought something e.g. a few bunches of banana and that doesn't mean it is a good time for you to buy a few banana too.

Your favourite blogger may be a 800 pounds Gorilla sitting on high level of cash and gobbling up a few bunches of banana here and there is not going to cause any problem.

But, to a small Monkey on low cash level is different. Just eating up one bunch of banana may cause indigestion if got it wrong. In the stock market, small Monkey can't behave like giant Gorilla."

Real happening in ex-famous cbox where most of the monkeys in that cbox were feeling down due to lack of bullets to hoot more in 2009. This Gorilla-cboxer kept buying and buying.  When the market and economy finally recovered; he showed us his 6 digits passive income! LOL!

To those who are still holding smelly SML and green SCI by sucking Panadols; probably the worst is over!

Dow drops nearly 500 points to close at new low for 2022 on rising recession fears

Stocks tumbled Friday to cap a brutal week for financial markets, as surging interest rates and foreign currency turmoil heightened fears of a global recession.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbled 486.27 points, or 1.62%, to 29,590.41. The S&P 500 slid 1.72% to 3,693.23, while the Nasdaq Composite dropped 1.8% to 10,867.93.

The Dow notched a new low for the year and closed below 30,000 for the first time since June 17. The 30-stock index ended the day 19.9% below an intraday record, flirting with bear market territory. At one point, the Dow was down more than 826 points.

Wah! New low in 2022 for DOW!

Diminishing Bear Market Impact To My Portfolio As Retiree (Year 7)

Read? After Point X.....

Uncle8888 finally realized this - with each passing year as retiree who cashed out 100% of dividends received and any realized capital gains to fund household expenses; there will be diminishing bear market impact to his portfolio! No BS!

1. 100% of dividends received and any realized capital gains.

2. Just recycle any recovered investment costs into his War Chest to fight the next pull back, correctio or market crash to calibrate investment income.

A few more years; it will become freehold investment income for life! Best in Singapore SGX! LOL!

Kep Corp - Fishy Closing On Friday (16 Sep 22)

Kep Corp has completed its $500M share buyback program. The last share buyback was on 13 Sep 22.

A spike in closing price from 7.23 at 16:59 to 7.31 at 17:04 and then closed at 7.31 with 77% of total day volume!

This huge last minute buy up was not supported by Kep Corp share buyback program and also disappearance of sellers below 7.31. Who are these buyers at closing? Interesting reference for next week market actions.

Stock futures inch higher after major averages suffer worst day since June 2020

 Walau! Let see how STI react today! Income investors in SGX also panic???

Stock futures inched slightly higher in overnight trading Tuesday after another hot inflation reading sent the major averages tumbling to their worst day since June 2020 and dampened investors’ expectations of a less hawkish Federal Reserve.

Futures tied to the Dow Industrial Average last added 68 points, or 0.22%, while S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq 100 futures each inched about 0.2% higher.

During Tuesday’s regular trading session the Dow sank 1,276.37 points, or 3.94%, to close at 31,104.97, while the S&P 500 slid 4.32% to 3,932.69. The Nasdaq Composite toppled 5.16% to 11,633.57. All the major averages broke a four-day winning streak.

The market moves came after August’s consumer price index report showed headline inflation rose 0.1% on a monthly basis despite a drop in gas prices.

The hot inflation report left questions over whether stocks could go back to their June lows or fall even further. It also spurred some fears that the Federal Reserve could potentially hike even higher than the 75 basis points markets are pricing in.

“It caught the market off guard,” said LPL Financial’s Quincy Krosby. “The market had been expecting at least that we had leveled off — perhaps not moving downward but certainly not climbing higher. It was the wrong direction and the concern, of course, is always translated into what does this mean for the Fed.”

All 30 Dow stocks and S&P 500 sectors finished the session lower, led to the downside by communications services. The sector fell 5.6% and finished its worst day since February, dragged down by shares of big technology names like Netflix and Meta Platforms, which tumbled about 7.8% and 9.4%, respectively.

A reading of the producer price index is due out Wednesday morning and could offer further clues into the state of inflation before the Fed’s rate-hike meeting
