With that in mind, we have come up with a set of Warren Buffett’s Inspirational Quotes Of All Time below:

Warren Buffett Quotes on Life

1. Aim High But Don’t Over-Reach– “I don’t try to jump over 7-foot bars; I look for 1-foot bars that I can step over.”

2. Aim Well– “To swim a fast 100 metres, it’s better to swim with the tide than to work on your stroke.”

3. Focus On Your Goals– “I’ve often felt there might be more to be gained by studying business failures than business successes.”

4. Be Honest – “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.”

6. Have A Philosophy– “Rule No.1 : Never lose money. Rule No.2 : Never forget Rule No.1.”

7. Ignore Mr. Market’s Moods

“The market is there as a reference point to see if anybody is offering to do anything foolish. When we invest in stocks, we invest in businesses.”

“(John Maynard) Keynes essentially said, don’t try and figure out what the market is doing. Figure out a business you understand, and concentrate.”

“The future is never clear; you pay a very high price in the stock market for a cheery consensus. Uncertainty actually is the friend of the buyer of long-term values.”

Lessons from a Discussion of the Net Lease Corporate Real Estate ETF (Guest Post)

Lessons from a Discussion of the Net Lease Corporate Real Estate ETF (Guest Post)

Ben Carlson and Michael Batnick’s Animal Spirits have become a great podcast to listen to. If you are the sort that wants a short 30 minute entertaining take on what are some of the best financial data points out there, and discussion on some of the latest articles that they have read (they read a lot), this is the one.

They have introduced a Talk your book segment where they bring on some interesting financial products that they find, could have a role in your portfolio, and ask the people behind it to talk about it.

You will appreciate the way they context the discussion to a strategic level, thinking about whether you need this financial product in your portfolio.

In last week’s episode, they brought on the folks behind Fundamental Income to talk about their new Net Lease ETF and the index behind it.

The NETLease Corporate Real Estate ETF (ticker: NETL) seeks to track the performance, before fees and expenses, of the Fundamental Income Net Lease Real Estate Index (NNNLSCTR). The index’s goal is to track the performance of the U.S. listed Net Lease real estate sector in a diversified manner by screening for real estate companies that focus on investments in net lease real estate and assigning only those companies identified to the Index. The Index places constraints on constituents to protect against concentration in any one company or tenant.

This ETF that they are discussing is not listed in Singapore. It is listed in the USA and thus if you are attracted to the dividends, you have to take into consideration a 30% dividend withholding tax. So if the forecast dividend yield is 5% the after tax return is 3.5%.

Still, I think the value of this discussion is to hear from the management why they think this segment has a unique proposition that more investors should know about.

You could also benefit from contrasting this to the other type of REITs you invest in.

You could also benefit form the discussion of portfolio positioning, risk management for the REITs.

The Net Lease segment is interesting. In the past, I wrote an article about the Perfect REIT experienced investors are looking for and the Net Lease like REITs have many of these characteristics.

In Singapore, perhaps Keppel DC, Parkway Life REIT matches that description the most.

With a higher than average tolerance for risk, I’m a big fan of growth shares and you’ll find a number in my portfolio.

I’m looking at adding a couple more to my portfolio in the near future and three that I’m considering are listed below.

Investing Is So Damn Tough You Are Right (Guest Post)

Investing Is So Damn Tough You Are Right (Guest Post)

This post was originally posted here. The writer is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with username known as 3Fs.

To say that this has been a tough year for investment is an understatement.

Investing, as a general form of growing your wealth is so damn tough that for one not to be losing money is sometimes already seen as a form of success.

I can totally relate why many people avoided them like a plague because contrary to many popular beliefs, it can jolly well diminish your money.

Imagine yourself being invested in Asian Pay TV Trust at the start of the year, having intrigued by its stuttering share price and a high dividend payout.

You might have thought the dividends they pay out is unsustainable hence you made a decision to project them conservatively at the fcf you think they can give out.

When APTT announces their recent results, the management is even more conservative than you are and slashed their dividends like they did to slaughter a dying pig, causing its share price to fall by 50% in one day.

4 Ways A Retail Investor Can Get Access To Bonds In Singapore

4 Ways A Retail Investor Can Get Access To Bonds In Singapore

When it comes to investing, the first few things that come to investors’ mind are stocks or REITs. However, many investors tend to overlook or ignore bonds (fixed income securities) as an asset class.

bonds

What exactly are bonds?

Bonds represent debt obligations aka they are a form of borrowing. Bonds can be issued by the government or a company. Let’s say if a company issues a bond, the issuer owes the holders a debt and is obliged to them interest (also known as coupon payment) or to repay the principal at the maturity date. The interest payments are usually payable at fixed intervals – semi-annually, annually and sometimes monthly.

Note that in the event of liquidation (the process of ending a business and distributing its assets to claimants), bondholders will get the first priority in terms of getting paid, followed by unsecured creditors (suppliers, employees, banks and stockholders).

Generally, due to the nature of bonds, bonds are considered less risky than equities like stocks or REITs. That is also why bonds generally entail a lower return in relation to the risks.

Before you start investing in one, you have to familiarise yourself with the list of bonds available in the Singapore market that you can invest in:

1. Singapore Government Securities (SGS)
