Workshop: Build your DIY investing portfolio with 10 Simple Steps
This latest workshop in our series, is all about helping retail investors focus on key criteria in the stock selection and portfolio allocation process by using a solid checklist.
Serious investing requires the investor to do his homework.
Every piece of homework done needs to follow a structure. Like the great Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffet, great investors always have a plan.
Like the saying goes…”Failing to plan, is planning to fail.”
This is the workshop that teaches you how to plan your portfolio, by first creating the most crucial part of the plan: the checklist.
Whether you’re a totally newbie or an experienced investor, having a solid investing checklist is necessary because it will set the criteria, tone and structure to pick the best stocks and also manage the worse threat faced by investors when it happens – Fear.
In this session, we will share with you how you should build your own portfolio using this 10-step checklist.
Conducted by @Smallcapasia, you will learn the following from this workshop:
1) What to Buy
Stop all your Guesswork! Learn to Filter for Stocks based on a Pre-Set list of Criteria or Hypothesis instead.
2) When to Buy
One simply should not Buy a Stock based on its Share Price (E.g. 52 week Low etc) One should buy a stock when it meets the Right Criteria.
3) At What Price
Market Price offers ‘Margin of Safety’ compared to Intrinsic Value (e.g. PEG <= 0.7). We shall go through 2 stocks using PEG and DCF models here.

6) When to Sell

7) Portfolio Structure
Do you prefer Focus or Diversified Investing? Find out their difference and how you should package your portfolio. E.g. 90% Stocks, 10% Cash; Diversified across various industries.
