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.

An Investor’s On-Site Visit To A Property Of Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust In Japan (guest post)

An Investor’s On-Site Visit To A Property Of Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust In Japan (guest post)

mapletree nac trust

$Mapletree NAC Tr(RW0U.SI)

Buildings : SII Makuhari Building & Fujitsu Makuhari Building

Location: Chiba prefecture, Japan.

Date : November 2018.

Mapletree Greater China Commercial Trust was listed in 2013 and managed overseas commercial properties in China and Hong Kong.  Earlier this year, with the acquisition of Japanese properties into its portfolio, it changed its name to Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust.

I started to took notice and then shortly thereafter took up a position.  With the trade war with U.S and China at the forefront, I reckon that a more diversified portfolio would be beneficial so properties in Japan would be a good balance.

It would be better if they can get some South Korean commercial properties but I think it is good to keep within 2- 3 countries as exchange rates maybe a double edged sword.

Gearing ratio had increased to 39% (Sep 2018) from 36% ( Mar 2018) but I am not too concerned.

SGX Bull Charge Challenge Investors’ Insights: Chicao

SGX Bull Charge Challenge Investors’ Insights: Chicao

Recently, we got in touch with Chi Cao, one of the top contestants of the SGX Bull Charge Stock Challenge, to understand more about her investing strategies, her philosophy, and what motivated her to get started in the first place.

With less than a month to go, some of the top participants have achieved double digit portfolio returns within the timeframe of just 3 months. Impressive! For those who are wondering, the SGX Bull Charge Stock Challenge is only open to professionals and influencers in the finance industry.

But the question we should really ask is, how did they do it? What is their investment or trading philosophy? Who inspired them? What styles of investing or trading are they using?

We believe that every one of these professionals have different styles of investing, expertise in different types of securities and also have their own story to tell.

This is what Chicao had to say:

Tell me more about yourself and how did you get started in investing or trading?

I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2015. During my university time, I was captivated by the financial market and was curious of what caused the market to move. I applied to many firms for a trading role and I managed to get an opportunity to join as an assistant trader for one of the largest brokerage firms in Singapore.

Over the course of the two years, I managed to trade in some of the most volatile periods, e.g. Brexit and 2016 US Election. It is through those rites of passages that I grow to fully respect the adage that the market is always right!

This is what Brian had to say:

Tell me more about yourself and how did you get started in investing or trading?

Like most of the people, I am a normal employee who works by the day from 9 to 6 in the financial industry. During my free time, I would blog occasionally at http://www.foreverfinancialfreedom.blogspot.com to journal my thoughts on topics that are of my interests, i.e usually catered for investing strategy, portfolio management or personal finance. I am married with two young kids aged 4 and 1.

I started investing sometime in 2010 not long after I started working and have been trying to fine tune my investing style to fit my needs.
