Do You Know When To Sell Stocks? 4 TIPS TO KNOW.

Selling stocks is easy but knowing WHEN to sell stocks is NOT.

More often than not, amateur investors focus too much on what to buy but don’t have an exit plan in place. They panic for many reasons:

  • The share price goes up too high (should I cash in?)
  • Share price crash to the doldrums (should I cut loss or hold on?)
  • A significant change in business operations (Electronic components Serial System hopped on the Durian selling craze).

Hence, buying a stock at the right price is only one part of a successful investment, knowing when to sell is also critical.

My Selling Mistake

A long time ago, I bought into Facebook when it was trading at ~US$25 shortly after its IPO. I sold it for US$40 to lock in some quick gains, thinking that social media is over-hyped.

It doesn’t take too long for me to realize the mistake as Facebook continues to grow by leaps and bounds after that. And I would have made a 10x bagger (1,000% return!) if I wouldn’t have been so fixated on the short term gains!

Without further ado, here are 4 good tips on knowing when to sell and also to prevent you from repeating my sobering mistake…

Is China Railway Construction (01186.HK) a Bargain Buy, or a Value trap?

Is China Railway Construction (01186.HK) a Bargain Buy, or a Value trap?

China Railway Construction (“CRCC”) recently caught my attention as it has tumbled approximately 44% from an intraday high of $9.99 on 5 Mar 2020 to close HKD5.64 on 21 Sep 2020.

Is this a bargain buy, or a value trap? Let’s take a look.

First up, a description of CRCC

Quoting from its 1HFY20 results, CRCC’s businesses cover a variety of construction, survey, design and consultation, manufacturing, real estate development, logistics and materials trading and other business with a refined industry chain covering scientific research, planning, survey, design, construction, supervision and management, maintenance, operation, investment and financing, etc.

Six reasons why CRCC catches my attention

1) 21 analysts cover CRCC with all buy calls; the average target price HKD12.00

Based on Figure 1 below, CRCC is widely covered by 21 analysts. It is noteworthy that all 21 analysts give a buy call on CRCC with an average target price of HKD12.00. This represents a potential capital appreciation of approximately 113%. The estimated dividend yield is around 5.0% hence the total potential upside may amount to 118%!

Today, let us take an in-depth look at its direct competitor, Mastercard Incorporated (NYSE:MA).

Just like Visa, Mastercard Incorporated is also in the business of connecting consumers, financial institutions, merchants, governments, digital partners, businesses and other organizations worldwide, enabling them to use electronic forms of payment through their family of well-known brands, including Mastercard, Maestro, and Cirrus.

Currently, the company’s payment network spans more than 150 currencies, and in over 210 countries and territories.

Their core products include:

(i) Consumer Credit – where there are a number of programs available to provide consumers with credit that allow them to defer payment

(ii) Consumer Debit – which can be used to make purchases, as well as obtain cash in bank branches, at ATMs, and also at the point of sales

(iii) Prepaid – a type of electronic payment that allows consumers to pay in advance, regardless of whether they have a bank account or credit history

(iv) Commercial – provides payment products and solutions that help large corporations, midsize companies, small businesses. and government entities

In the remainder of this post, you will read about the NYSE-listed company’s historical financial performance, debt profile, as well as dividend payout over a 5-year period (between FY2015 and FY2019 – the company has a financial year-end every 31 December), its current-year results so far (compared against the previous year), and finally, a look at whether the current share price is deemed to be cheap or expensive.

Let’s begin…

Does PayPal Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:PYPL) Make a Good Addition to Your Investment Portfolio? (GUEST POST)

Does PayPal Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:PYPL) Make a Good Addition to Your Investment Portfolio? (GUEST POST)

If you have been shopping online, then the name PayPal should sound familiar to you – as some of the merchants make use of the digital payment platform to accept payments from their customers.

Before you continue reading today’s post, a disclaimer: I am currently invested in the company I am going to talk about today – PayPal Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:PYPL). But having said that, as always, rest assured I will be impartial in my analysis of the company.

I’m sure the name PayPal is not one that’s alien to you – especially to those of you who have shopped online before, you should have come across it when making payments, as some merchants make use of its digital payment platform to accept payments from their customers (for a small fee.)

From my understanding in its FY2019 annual report (for the financial year ended 31 December 2019), the company currently has 281 million customer active accounts and 24 million merchant active accounts across more than 200 markets worldwide. The company also owns Braintree (a company based in Chicago in the United States that specializes in mobile and web payment systems for e-commerce companies, which was acquired by PayPal in September 2013), Venmo (a mobile payment service that allows for the transfer of funds between its app users), and Xoom (a platform that facilitates the sending of money, paying of bills, and reloading of mobile phones from the United States and Canada to 131 countries worldwide; the company was acquired by PayPal in November 2015.)

Among the various means that PayPal Holdings Inc. generates its revenue from include:
