  1. CW,

    You should thank me!

    If not how you get the free kopi?

    LOL!


    If investing were easy, who would pay $3000 for a workshop?

    If markets were crystal and not confusing, how come no guru who pocketed the $3000 never offer a money back guarantee?

    If investing were easy, how come the majority of CPF members who bought and hold using CPIS are still under water despite STI now is no where near bear market territory?


    The earlier your reader discover the below the better!

    1. Errr SMOL .... majority of CPFIS members who bought and *hold* have profits.

      Those who bought and *sold* mostly have losses. Guess which statistic gahmen using from now on?? Hohoho!!!

      But ya lorr .... so many bloggers & so many different viewpoints ... I also blur!! Kekeke!!!

      Don't worry next time we will all have our own robot fund managers ... Look Ma!! No brains needed!! (unless you think that the robot is not learning fast enough & you want to hack the algorithm...)

    2. Spur,

      Those who lost money under CPIS include those who panic sell at the lows AND those who held on to lemons and salted fishes ;)

      Those who bought rubber balls will of course sing the praises of buy and hold - I would too!

      Just don't mention how you let a 10 bagger turned into a 5 bagger (don't hit the face!)

      Always focus on the positives!

      LOL!



      If CPIS worked as "planned", our favourite choice for PM will not come out to say CPIS is "not fit for purpose". What refeshing honesty!

      CW and I belong to the side of the spectrum that made money under CPIS. The beauty is we know this minority include a diveristy of animals as in investors and traders.

      Its never the nouns; its always the adjectives ;)

  2. If back testing and past data mining works well; then we all better to switch to Robot trading and investing. Who can beat the Robot into DEEP analysis without emotion and act on it with lighting speed?

    All can become truly passive and account size will made the difference among us.

    1. CW,

      Sell side vested interests cannot get fees and commissions when customers are hesitant or confused. So to lull customers into confidence and conviction "thinking" they know what they were doing, what better way than to dumb things down to the level any idiot can understand?

      See? Anyone and everyone can do it!!!


      It started with Buy and Hold.

      Then Passive low cost indexing.

      Now Robo investing.


      How much easier to explain the above than to explain to customers what the hell is Fundamentals and Technical analysis!


      Just like when you meet your reader for kopi, would you share you've read almost EVERY financial book in our public library?

      On stage 3 minutes; back stage 10 years blood and sweat...


      My bad! I should never have said the Emperor got no clothes ;)

    2. Humans no doubt love the easiest way out.

      The easy way is not tough.
      The tough way is not easy.

      The outcome reaped is very different in both situations.

      Being a developer VS being a reseller VS being a consumer?

      Developer: I've developed this application! Many people are using it!! I myself can use it too! And I'm earning money from it!

      Reseller: Aiya.. Know how to use this platform to earn money can already ma. I also earning money.

      Consumer: This product is good.

      Hmm...

      Buy and hold generally made famous by WB. People are always idolising the best investors without realizing that different people are different.

    Factors Needed to Make Money In the Stock Market

    1. Price is the most important factor to use in relation to value.
    2. Try to establish the value of the company. Remember that a share of stock represents a part of a business and is not just a piece of paper.
    3. Use book value as a starting point to try and establish the value of the enterprise. Be sure that debt does not equal 100% of the equity. (Capital and surplus for the common stock).
    4. Have patience. Stocks don’t go up immediately.
    5. Don’t buy on tips or for a quick move. Let the professionals do that, if they can. Don’t sell on bad news.
    6. Don’t be afraid to be a loner but be sure that you are correct in your judgment. You can’t be 100% certain but try to look for weaknesses in your thinking. Buy on a scale and sell on a scale up.
    7. Have the courage of your convictions once you have made a decision.
    8. Have a philosophy of investment and try to follow it. The above is a way that I’ve found successful.
    9. Don’t be in too much of a hurry to sell. If the stock reaches a price that you think is a fair one, then you can sell but often because a stock goes up say 50%, people say sell it and button up your profit. Before selling try to reevaluate the company again and see where the stock sells in relation to its book value. Be aware of the level of the stock market. Are yields low and P-E ratios high. If the stock market historically high. Are people very optimistic etc?
    10. When buying a stock, I find it helpful to buy near the low of the past few years. A stock may go as high as 125 and then decline to 60 and you think it attractive. 3 years before the stock sold at 20 which shows that there is some vulnerability in it.
    11. Try to buy assets at a discount than to buy earnings. Earnings can change dramatically in a short time. Usually assets change slowly. One has to know how much more about a company if one buys earnings.
    12. Listens to suggestions from people you respect. This doesn’t mean you have to accept them. Remember it’s your money and generally it is harder to keep money than to make it. Once you lose a lot of money it is hard to make it back.
    13. Try not to let your emotions affect your judgment. Fear and greed are probably the worst emotions to have in connection with the purchase and sale of stocks.
    14. Remember the word compounding. For example, if you can make 12% a year and reinvest the money back, you will double your money in 6 yrs, taxes excluded. Remember the rule of 72. Your rate of return into 72 will tell you the number of years to double your money.
    15. Prefer stocks over bonds. Bonds will limit your gains and inflation will reduce your purchasing power.
    16. Be careful of leverage. It can go against you.

    There U have it.
    QED?
