I belong to the dinosaur generation where computer was known to be as big as a classroom blackboard. While I try to catch up with advancement of technologies but my eyes don't necessary agree with me. It is quite tiring looking at the smartphone for more than 10 minutes !

Whenever I started to hear "I should have buy more" or "I want to buy more now" or "What good stock to buy?", I know exciting time, yet again, has come to the stock market. Everyone yearn for it. It has been relatively uneventful period for the past one year for the stock market. Now is certainly a refreshing period. How long will it last this time? Nobody will know but why not we welcome it while it lasts. I am not suggesting we must pour everything we have into the stock market but rather we must invest sensibly.
Quite often during this period of time, people will start to ask "What stock can I invest?" Sometime I rather not to answer but trying to be polite, I just said "put some money that doesn't cause an arm or a leg if anything happened". Because I knew based on their demeanour, they already have decided to buy with or without my opinion. They just need someone there to reinforce whatever they intend to do soon or maybe already had did it. 3 most possible scenarios of their current situations will be when asked further:-
1) He or she has not invested anything prior to this or invested in some stocks.My question will be - what make you think you are really investing and not trading this time around and why now when the market is hot and not say 6 months ago when the market is cool?My humble answer is you are probably attracted by the easy money from the hot market. You will get out as soon as you get in. Therefore, you have to be careful dabble with stock market.
2) He or she has invested in some stock but the price not yet move and wanted to top up the same stock.My question will be - is the company still fundamentally good as the first time you bought it?
If yes, my humble answer is no harm to top up.
3) He or she has invested in some stock that price has moved up and wanted to top up the same stock instead of dispose it.My question will be - have you satisfied with the profit and has achieved what you have targeted during your first buy?If yes, my humble answer is take the profit and enjoy the fruit of your investment. Then take your time to hunt for next stock investment. Be disciplined and steadfast to your goal is the key to sustainable stock investment mindset. It doesn't matter if the stock price keeps climbing after you have disposed it. You have make your profit, and let someone makes theirs.
If no, my humble answer is no harm top up units of the same stock. The quantum is a matter of your personal risk tolerance. As for my recent case, I have topped-up 25% units when the price has increased 40%. The reason for doing this is pure mathematics to plan my top up arrangement rather than based on emotion. Bear in mind, this arrangement might not work for you if your current stock holding is less than 10,000 units. By stating 40% figure doesn't mean I have set my exit price. Certainly not. My exit price is a function of the company financial performance in future, it means as long as the company grows, my exit price grows in tandem, it means my exit price is dynamic, it means it is a long term investment.
Whatever it is, the bottom line always is we must make money from stock investment. Doesn't matter how much you have made, as long as you are happy after selling, and that matters. Doesn't matter your next friend makes more profit than you, as long as you know you have made the right stock choice and it had given you that profit, and that matters.
By the way, many had asked why I did not talk about JAKS. Well, i think recent events had already attracted so much attention. Nothing more need to talk about, really. You can make your own judgement. To buy or to sell or to stay, only give us the same outcome - that is we will still glue to the computer screen for some time now.

My 2016 stock selection did not performance as expected. Nevertheless, at RM1.48, it still give us a 22% gain since December 2015. I wish those who received my report on JAKS are still holding on to the stock until now. Please accept my apology for the "slow" performance of this stock. I was wrong. I would like to think last one year could bring better price action in this stock price but it did not as anticipated.
If you have indeed keep the stock until now, not only you have gained a 22% in capital but more importantly you have gained the wisdom of patience in the game of long term stock investment and that's more important than a 22% gain.
How about this year 2017? I have one stock recommendation for 2017. Actually, I was a bit shy when JAKS stock did not performance as what I would have expected. Because of this, I was a bit reluctant to make new recommendation for year 2017 back in January. Maybe it is time now to share my 2017 stock recommendation but there is a caveat - the stock has climbed 33% since the first batch of my purchase in September 2016.
For those who have contributed to my grandson's education fund previously, I wish you could be kind enough to continue to do so this time around. As a token of appreciation, a report on this new stock will be provided, similar to the report on JAKS. If you are not keen, well, no problem.
Nevertheless, here you are, RCECAP is the one stock that I have invested for this year.
Don't worry. There is no April's Fool.
Its stock price closed at RM1.78 on 31 March 2017.

Yes. I was away from this blog for 6 months. After my last post, I told myself I should leave my share market thought for awhile. If not, it is against what I have been telling people that stock market is for long term. Talking about stock market every now and then is no different playing into stock market everyday. Emotion tends to creep in to cloud our judgment. We should look at stock market once in awhile, make our stock investment and leave it as it is. Come back after some time and certainly not every day or week. Some advocate 3 months. But I think 6 months is still reasonable. If you are one hardcore long term stock investor, 3 months or 6 months or even 1 year is nothing. This is because if you have been buying good stock, the feeling should be like - after 1 year, when you open your fixed deposit account and you know very well your fixed deposit values will definitely increase and not decrease. In stock market is the same. Of course I am not talking about just 3% increase like what fixed deposit interest rates would give you. We should aim higher. But then even if you can get 20% increase in stock values after 1 year is pretty decent.

The last 6 months has not been easy for stock market. I think everyone knows the reasons. This is just part and parcel of stock market risks. If your stock price has dropped, don't worry too much. Anything goes down will come up again.
Admittedly, the stock I recommended last December has not been doing well for the last nine months. Well, I recalled the same goes to Gadang, a stock selection of mine last year. Give it some time, and now look at its price. It has already increased by 100% since Here in February 2015 and Here in November 2015, and I threw a challenge Here in December 2015 to my associates.
Actually, my absence for the last few months was also partly due to health scare. But my doctors had since gave me a clean bill of health some 2 weeks ago. I am slowing adjust back to my usual routine.
