My Portfolio

My Shares Portfolio
Being a small investor, I believed my shares portfolio might not deemed pretty (or cool, whatever you call it) to many of you out there. Just like to share my little venture in new uncharted water (even though it is a bit late bearing in mind of my age. But it is always better be late than never).

Without talking too much of crap, let's get back to business!

  1. Hi Richard,

    Like you, I also started my investment journey late - bought my 1st open market stock during the IPO of Mapletree GCC last March 2013. Like you, I also started blogging this July 2014. Even our age are in the same age group. Totally agreed with you, never too late to start investing!

    Come by my blog and give me some suggestion on blogging and investing.

    1. Hi David, yup! I think we have quite a number of similar starting point in the investing journey but I think you are still ahead of the game as compared to me. I have just pop by your blog and saw your rather diversified portfolio. Keep it up and let's interact more in the future

  2. Thanks for sharing your portfolio with us. Some names that are not familiar to me at all. That's why I like to read blogs from outside the U.S. Do you plan on adding more companies to your portfolio in the future?

  4. Hi Richard,
    What's your view on the recent quarterly report by Super Group?

  5. Hi David,

    With a Quarterly Report of 46% fall in earnings, it is definitely not rosy. In fact, I think the weak result will continue for another Quarter or two, in view of the lower sales in Singapore, China and Philippines.

    However, still view that Super is a fundamentally strong company which I will hold for long term. Are you vested on this counter?

    Cheers!

    1. Yes, I'm keeping for a very long horizon....lol. In fact, since beginning of my investing journey last year, I had only sold-out SPHReit & USNA. The rest of my trading had been new purchases and hope to hold them 10, 20, 30 years as long as their fundamental not changing for the worst. This is what I'm trying to do.

  6. Hi Richard
    Just came across your website recently. I saw from your realized portfolio that you bought and sold 15 shares of Facebook. Could you share with me how you trade shares on American exchanges. So far I have only traded on the SGX and would like to know how to trade on other overseas exchange.

    1. Steve : Thanks for dropping by. I am currently using Phillips Security's POEM platform for the transaction and besides SGX, it can be use to trade other countries' stocks like those in the US (the steps are the same).

      Feel free to let me know if you have any other question.

    2. If you trade regularly with US shares, you might to consider using E*Trade. Fee is US$9.99 per trade. Can open account with their Sgp office at Hong Leong building.

  8. Hi Richard,

    Nice blog, I stumbled upon your site via Ezekiel Chew... was looking for reviews on him.

    I wanted to know why you didn't pursue on his course?

    Take care,

    1. Hi Fan Focus, thanks for dropping by and comment. I am pretty new in investing and would want to focus on stock investment instead of handling too many different vehicles.

      I assume that you've completed your course with Ezekiel and currently trading in FX?

  9. Hi Richard,

    Good to find fellow small investor. I thought I was the only one having 20K+ portfolio. I started investing only on 2014 after I attended one value investing seminar organized by Ken Chee of 8investment. Then read about Value Investing in Growth Companies book. Unlike you, I think I've gone more aggressive in finding low valued companies and had some losses in the process. During the process I felt more comfortable investing in growth companies even sometimes trading at fair value. Right now I'm holding Riverstone, ISOTeam, Silverlake (growth) and Spindex (undervalued). I also try to invest with no less than 5K per counter. My current capital is only 25K right now.

    I read you also had interest in Riverstone and Straco which ar both growth companies. I believe if we are to invest companies for long time, they have to have some growth stories.

    Cheers,
    CM

    1. CM : Thanks for dropping by.. I started late and I think our portfolio size as equally small at the moment. In any case, all things start small ;-)

      I bought and sold off Straco with small profits last year but now it is too pricey already lol
