Family Inc: Viewing Your Career as Investments (Guest Post)

Since we are on the topic of job switching, I thought of writing some financial and non-financial decision points I considered when making these decisions that I had over the years.

However, these thoughts are rather jumbled up in the head. And this week, is not the most conducive to think about these things because I am picking up some stuff… that requires a little bit more manpower.

So perhaps that will be left to next week.

One book that have been on my mind to write about was this book called Family Inc.

This is not a very popular book, but you can find a few in your national library. I planned to see if I can do a series on this book because I find a lot of what he talked about my resonate with my readers here.

Daily Leverage Certificates – A Whole New World (Guest Post)

Daily Leverage Certificates – A Whole New World (Guest Post)

First introduced in July 2017, I felt that DLC hasn’t been well understood by the market for its use and purpose other than being perceived as yet another leveraged product to stay away from.

The 6 Stocks Which Grew More Than 5% In Price In A Month

With the trade talk between China and US being resumed after the G20, both Singapore and HK markets rallied big time. It’s time to spot some potential stocks!

Image result for g20

Let’s look at 3 Hong Kong stocks that have caught the public’s eye:

According to Reuters, on  27th June Shares in Hong Kong rose on Thursday, extending the previous day’s cautious gains, as investors’ hopes of a trade truce between the United States and China rose ahead of a highly anticipated meeting between the countries’ leaders. At the close of trade, the Hang Seng index was up 399.44 points or 1.42% at 28,621.42, adding to the previous day’s 0.1% gain.

The top gainer on the Hang Seng was Sunny Optical (2382 HK)-mainland China’s largest manufacturer of smartphone camera modules and lenses which gained 4.03%. Sunny Optical is also up by at least 20% within a month. If you have a 5x leverage, it would be more than 100% gain!

Besides Sunny Optical Technology Group Co Ltd, AAC Technologies (2018 HK)-acoustic components supplier to Apple Inc also rose 7.1 per cent to HK$47.50 as reported by South China Morning Post.
