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!

Value Investing Made Simple by Uncle Chua (2)

Read? Value Investing Made Simple by Uncle Chua

  1. Can you be the next Uncle Chua?
  2. What can we learn from Uncle Chua?

Let Uncle8888 continues with the story with his favourite 3M's theory. Read? 3M's Theory.


Complicated method of stock picking is NOT pre-requisite for making money in the stock market. A simple method like buying blue chips that pay dividends slowly over the bear market is equally effective in making lots of money over long run. This method may look simple; but it is not easy to do it.

One guy said: "Blue chips is no brainer when market collapses."

Uncle8888 replied: "When market collapses, some investors lost their brains!" (I will come to this at later part of this post)


You need enough money to slide with Bear to buy slowly. (That was my biggest mistake in 2007/2008 for not keeping enough troopers to fight the Bear. Alamak!)


Even you may have enough money but you may not have the GUT like Uncle Chua to keep buying when the stock market keeps going down. (I knew two guys during the market low at Mar 09 were congratulating themselves for staying in cash: one at 90% and the other at 100%!)

"When market collapses, some investors lost their brains!"


To be the next Uncle Chua, we must start focusing on building up Money and preparing our Mind for the next Bear and also don't worry too much on Method.


  1. Hi Unc8888,
    I totally agree with this post of yours. Hope I can be gutsy should the opportunity present itself.

    Good luck!

  2. Hey,
    I have been doing this thing for more than 22 years.
    But I also have been doing "stupid things" in between.
    The difference is I have done more good things than stupid.
    And I am still around so......
    You got the picture or not?
