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)

TIME WEIGHTED RETURNS VS MONEY WEIGHTED RETURNS

I think probably 70% of the people here don’t really calculate their returns.
Certainly not the traders with multiple transactions, cos it is a mammoth task doing so.
The vast majority of the remaining 30% are probably calculating it wrongly (Wrongly, that is, if you are using your ROI and comparing it to active managers)

Trade Tariffs Hit Asian and US Stock Markets Badly

Trade Tariffs Hit Asian and US Stock Markets Badly

But first, what are trade tariffs?

A tariff is basically a tax paid on imports and exports of goods and services.

An imposing tax on an imported product would cause its price to increase, which results in a decrease in demand for imported goods. In relation, the price of local products becomes lower to the consumer.

The US Total Imports vs Dutiable Imports from 1821 to 2016 can be seen below:

The current US deficit as of 2017 is $500 billion. The US imports from China about four times as much as it sells to that country in goods as services, leaving Washington more room than Beijing to tax a greater share of bilateral trade. The U.S. trade deficit with China was $375 billion in 2017. The trade deficit exists because U.S. exports to China were only $130 billion while imports from China were $506 billion. The United States imports consumer electronics, clothing, and machinery from China. A lot of the imports are from U.S. manufacturers that send raw materials to China for low-cost assembly. Once shipped back to the United States, they are considered imports.
