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!

Currently; it about 54% to destination!

Multi-baggers (2)

Just For Thinking ....

Read? Multi-baggers

Peter Lych:

You don't need a lot in your lifetime. You only need a few good stocks in your lifetime. I mean how many times do you need a stock to go up ten-fold to make a lot of money? Not a lot.

I think the secret is if you have a lot of stocks, 

some will do mediocre
some will do okay, and 
if one of two of 'em go up big time

you produce a fabulous result.  

And I think that's the promise to some people. 

Some stocks go up 20-30 percent and they get rid of it and they hold onto the dogs. And it's sort of like watering the weeds and cutting out the flowers. You want to let the winners run

When the fun ones get better, add to 'em, and that one winner, you basically see a few stocks in your lifetime, that's all you need

I mean stocks are out there. When I ran Magellan, I wrote a book. I think I listed over a hundred stocks that went up over ten-fold when I ran Magellan and I owned thousands of stocks. I owned none of these stocks.

I missed every one of these stocks that went up over ten-fold. I didn't own a share of them. And I still managed to do well with Magellan. So there's lots of stocks out there and all you need is a few of 'em. So that's been my philosophy. You have to let the big ones make up for your mistakes.

In this business if you're good, you're right six times out of ten. You're never going to be right nine times out of ten. This is not like pure science where you go, "Aha" and you've got the answer. By the time you've got "Aha," Chrysler's already quadrupled or Boeing's quadrupled. You have to take a little bit of risk.


Can this be true for long only retail investors in Singapore?

What happen to Uncle8888 since Jan 2000 when he became deadly serious with investing and trading in Singapore stock market?

Uncle8888's Secret:

Read? Uncle8888, how do you find multi-bagger stock? (Re-visit)

Can 54 different stocks in SGX mean a lot of stocks?

Two ZERO baggers! Deadly painful!!!

18 Bleeding Hearts!!!  Even with doses of Panadols couldn't stop the sharp pain from these bleeding hearts.

Just a few multi-baggers will help to forget all the past pain and be wise enough to avoid picking up future ZERO baggers is enough for him.

A few multi-baggers may do the magic.

The Losers and winners

What we have in the market is never ours yet!!!

Did you notice what was taken back by Mr. Market? 


  1. Ha! Ha!
    The moral of the story is:-

    Tail Risks - An Ode to the Joy of Cash

    A Value Investor’s Perspective on Tail Risk Protection:
    An Ode to the Joy of Cash
    James Montier

    Tail risk protection appears to be one of many investment fads du jour. All too often those seeking tail risk protection
    appear to be motivated by the fear of missing out (not fear at all, but greed). However, the surge of tail risk products
    may well not be the hoped-for panacea. Indeed, they may even contain the seeds of their own destruction (something
    we often encounter in finance – witness portfolio insurance, etc). If the price of tail risk insurance is driven up too
    high, it simply won’t benefit its purchasers.
    When considering tail risk protection, investors must start by defining the tail risk they are seeking to protect
    themselves against. This sounds obvious, but often seems to get scant attention in the tail risk discussion. Once you
    have identified the risk, you can start to think about how you would like to protect yourself against that risk. In many
    situations, cash is a severely under appreciated tail risk hedge. The hardest element of tail risk protection is likely to
    be timing. It is clear that a permanent allocation is likely to do more harm than good in many situations.
    When it comes to timing tail risk protection, a long-term value-based approach and an emphasis on absolute standards
    of value, coupled with a broad mandate (a wide opportunity set, or, investment flexibility, if you prefer) seems to offer
    the best hope.

    Very "cheem" for me. Anyone like to say it as simple as possible? For people like me (Bo Tak Chet one).
    The moral of the story for me is no matter how you look at it, "CASH is still KING."


  2. I am lucky once, got Cosco at $0.52, 1:1 split, and sold all at $7.30.
