What Is Really Important In Long Term Investing???

No guessing here! 

Uncle8888 diligently tracked every position in his portfolio and knows how every position performs. 

There will be Good, Bad, and Ugly. We can't never escape!

How good, how bad and how ugly?

It's not whether you're right or wrong that's important, but how much money you make when you're right and how much you lose when you're wrong." ~ George Soros

How good when he is right?

How ugly when he is wrong?

2 Good vs 1 Bad and 1 Ugly!

He has bought back his Kep Corp at $12.14 in Jul 2007. So high! How ugly can it be?

See for yourself!

Why Uncle8888 still choose growth-dividend strategy over income dividend investing even though he now aims for higher cash flow.

The wisdom of George Soros in play!


  1. CW,

    Small typo. It's not July 2017 but year 07.

    Single stock futures have not taken off in Singapore ;)

  2. OK, now to answer your question on what's really important in long term investing?

    Living long enough to collect?

    1. Very true and to add on. To spend more money on ourselves and our beloved ones or else one day when strangers become close friends will help us to spend our money.

  3. Ha! Ha!
    You can not have the latter without the former.
    Or vice versa.
    Someone says, it's more than that:-
    And what he says:-

    Part One: Deepest Convictions about Successful Investing after 40 Years on wall Street

    A: The three best things to have before starting to invest.
    They are Luck (rather God’s Blessings if you are a believer), Longevity & Deep Pockets.
    B: Six Absolutes.
    1) Nobody knows the answers.
    2) There’s always an exact opposite opinion
    3) We’re predisposed to fail, but not predestined
    4) There is symmetry in the market
    5) The market is king—News is mostly irrelevant
    6) The durability of Major trends is underestimated
    C: Seven Core Convictions
    1) Assets allocation is the key to managing risk.
    2) Proper entry level is crucial
    3) Be aware of negatives: There’s always a column A and a column B.
    4) The best you can do is put the odds in your favour
    5) The worst you can do is be totally and instantly informed (A critique of CNBC)
    6) Many strategies can work - The key is consistency
    D: Nuggets
    1) A sure thing if you have the patient.
    2) No single stock has to be bought
    3) The sticky question of when to sell
    4) When is more important than what

    There you have it.
    Doesn't sound too difficult to understand, does it?
    The only problem is, is it too difficult to carry out in practice?
    Any one like to challenge what he said?
    We may all learn something new?

    1. temperament and CW,

      I think I'll make a good crosstalk (相声) partner ;)

      Many don't quite understand the purpose of a "poke".

      You both sure know the rules of engagement and how to play along :)

      Psst. "When is more important than what". This statement will make fundamental investors choke on their coffee; but how many can come up with a good retort based on their own track record? Ouch!
