As from April 2013 my Journey in Investing is 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!

In the market; there is No Free Lunch!

Someone else in the market must lose their hard earned saving from their salaries to provides lunches to other players in the market!

37. All you need for a lifetime of successful investing is a few big winners, and the pluses from those will overwhelm the minuses from the stocks that don’t work out. - Peter Lynch

Based on Uncle8888's past investment records; it looked like Barbell strategy and it is still better for him to continue to follow Peter Lynch's wise word into the next market cycle. Probably it will be his last market cycle. He doesn't want to miss this LAST ONE and regret!


  1. CW,

    I think we reveal our "investment age" when we quote Peter Lynch ;)

    Peter Lynch is quite popular for us who were active just before the crash and during the early 2000s.

    I must say I can relate to Peter Lynch a lot more than Warren Buffett. Peter Lynch's style very practical; everything you can see and touch. Stick with brands and companies we know from our daily lives. And I'm from retail :)

    What I liked best about Peter Lynch is not what he said or wrote - its what he did.

    Peter Lynch quit at the top.

    I hope I have the wisdom and presence of mind to do the same.

    Walk away like Liu Wen Zheng and Jiang Hui ;)

    1. To quit the Game one has to avoid depending on the Game to survive; otherwise how to quit?

    2. Aiya!

      SMOL means exactly enough is enough, no need to depend on the Game anymore to survive.

      (Poor me from 1987/8 till now (almost 30 years) still in the game.)

      But why so many Established Gurus, no need to depend on the Game long time ago,
      still playing the game?

  2. Is it really something they can do well, why then stop?

    1. temperament,

      LOL! Ownself ask rhetorical question; ownself answer ;)

      You win liao lor!

  3. When Peter Lynch retired, he was actually already very stressed & shacked. At least he was humble enough to walk away near his peak.

    Anyone remember Bill Miller?!?!

    Another "smart" fellow was the lead manager of the Henderson IT unit trust during the dot-com heydays. This was THE Internet fund back in the late 1990s, going up a few hundreds of %%% within a couple of years. He resigned right at the top near the end of 1999!!!

    1. Spur,

      There is also Stanley Druckenmiller who retired and chose to trade for himself instead ;)

      I mean if we are already have enough, why help others get richer and suffer the slings and arrows of "ungrateful" clients?

      There are also quite a few (lucky) startup founders who managed to sellout in 1999 BEFORE the crash.

      Jim Rogers, George Soros, Warren Buffett, Carl Icahn and other "seniors" definitely have enough. They are no longer in it for the money.

      Investing/trading/speculating is their ikigai - the reason they get up in the morning.

      When I say walk away, I don't mean completely.

      I hope I can only use 10% of my networth to "play" the markets. The other 90% should be ring-fenced from me as I am my own worst enemy! LOL!

      I don't play mahjong or bridge. So speculating is something to exercise my mind to keep dementia away?

      Its something very intellectually stimulating when I get the macro trends right :)

    2. We can do anything we like and don't feel the stress when the source for funding our living expenses is NOT part of the income equation from these activities.
