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!

Investing Is A Tale Or Story Of Hindsight Wisdom, Regret And Sorry??? (2)

Read? Investing Is A Tale Or Story Of Hindsight Wisdom, Regret And Sorry???

Read? 5 Worst-Performing Straits Times Index Stocks Over the Past 10 Years

Uncle8888 smiled when he read 5. Keppel Corp: -11.4%

Finally, in fifth place is Keppel Corporation (SGX: BN4), the Singapore-based conglomerate that has interests in property, infrastructure and offshore & marine businesses.

Over the past 10 years, Keppel shares have delivered a total return of -11.4%.

During the 2010s, its offshore & marine segment was hit hard as oil prices plummeted in the middle of the decade.

See lah! It shows that investing is tale or story of hindsight wisdom, regret or sorry!

If we changed the time frame of Kep Corp to over past 20 years; then buy and hold over long term becomes buy and freehold - investment income for life!

  1. In the case of willing to leave money in stock market for 20 years or more, then i think a

    better bet is Something like S&P 500, or some Index Funds or stock ETF?

    i will buy only all the way when ever "suitable".

    Then maybe able to reach Buy & Freehold after 20 years or earlier.

    It is actually then money doesn't matter but time factor.

    That's hindsight investing right?

  2. Sell and re-deploy. Change horse strategy. Market is so big and is always open with opportunities.

    1. Have read a book on Buy & Sell using Bear/Bull cycles for your entire life?

      I had and got oversold by the idea lol.

    2. But off late it seems Bear/Bull cycles are overcome easily by MMT or QE or Printing and printing

      of dollars?

    3. So learn a bit of CW8888's strategy of hit & run trading style.

      Not bad so far.

    4. But i think America has reached it zenith of MMT.

      Or the World got wise of it's MMT.
