- unlikely tech disruption
- F&B essential

$ComfortDelGro(C52.SI) - 3 votes
- at much lower price (1.5, 1.8 etc.)
- public transport in demand

Nice compilation. But TB is not in most of @hachiko hall of fame leh.


Reply to @Evilcrownofthorns : Singtel was the top choice in my 'Hall of Fame'. Hahaha!



Alamak..i didnt notice @opy also update hia thread until now. Thanks for compilation yeah...


thanks for the summary, nice!


I help my mum to queue for sheng siong.


I hereby declared @Hachiko the official poll master in IN. He is always so hardworking to do all the compilation and tally the votes..lol


Reply to @Spinning_Top : Polls can be useful sometimes. Hahaha!


Woah! 20 votes for TB! Top choice of IN members.


My choice is CDG. Transportation. Basic needs of people. Foods and drinks got wide variety of choices, so is supermarket. Just my personal opinion. ;D


Reply to @BrotherNo12 : I just can't link cdg with IT component of driverless. the app already sucks

thaibev,. the only one with proper growth and in an EM country...


DBS....haha kidding!

Tough choice between CDG and ThaiBev. I will go with ThaiBev. Their brand is the moat that will likely last >10 years. Cannot see so far out what will happen to the taxi industry.

2Q18 Score Card (with shame) and Review of my 2018 plan / reminders

A. Long Term Investment - SRS/CPFOA : -0.5% incl div (Oct 16 to Jun 18)

1. Exit $Lippo Malls Tr(D5IU.SI) (-24%) after twice averaged down (0.400, 0.355). Reason, uncertainties in Indonesia government changes, currency. Management didn't help my confidence.

2. Exit $ComfortDelGro(C52.SI)  (+16%), waiting to reenter back around 2.

3. Exit $CapitaMall Trust(C38U.SI) (+5%), price in range. Divvy level can be better with other counters.

4. Exit $Mapletree Com Tr(N2IU.SI) (-0.7%) for better opportunities.

5. Added $Viva Ind Tr(T8B.SI) at 0.85 and hope ESR merger does not go through.

6. Added $Venture(V03.SI) (avrg 20.4), $AEM(AWX.SI) (avrg 1.5), $Valuetronics(BN2.SI) (0.67) Most look major mistake at the moment, let's see.

7. Added $AIMSAMP Cap Reit(O5RU.SI) at 1.38.

3Q/2H Plan:

a. REITS - Plan to add: Aascendas, Frasers L&I, $Keppel DC Reit(AJBU.SI) in view. Monitor Viva.

b. Property Developers - Plan to add: $Frasers Property(TQ5.SI) $Keong Hong(5TT.SI) $Ho Bee Land(H13.SI) $UOL(U14.SI) in view.

c. Plan to balance UMS, Venture, Valuetronics.

d. continue to endure $SingTel(Z74.SI) pain, if no opportunity in (b) I might add Singtel around 2.6.

B. US Short/Mid Term Trading (Cash) : +11.5% incl div (Oct 17 to Jun 18)

1. Panic Exit Early April returned all 13% gain (Oct 17 - Mar 18) due to fresh 200B Trump Trade War threat - $GOOG (-10%), $BABA (-13%), $AMAT (-10%), $MU (-15%), $MCD (-1%), $BA (-5%), $FB (-9%), and $SILC (-12% : Yes, I am sillier).

2. Black out for 10 days not touching US Market at all. Set up trade plan for US Market with mandatory Exit point i.e. I will not enter any US Trade without a defined Exit point.3. With #2, I did the following Trades for remaining 2Q...

Winners: Baba (+11%), $AAPL (+7%), AMAT (+2%), MU (+8%), $SQ (+14%), Goog (+4%), Baba (+3%), $AMZN (+19%), $NFLX (+35%), VRX (+48%)

Losers: $BRK.B (-2%), $IBKR (-1%), $NVDA (-3%), $SHOP (-5%), $AMD (-6%), FB (-3%), $VRX (-5%)

3Q/2H Plan:

Continue to learn and practice trading method and strengthen mind, I feel I am on the right track now.

C. SG Short/Mid Term Trading (Cash) : -21% incl div (Feb 17 to Jun 18)

1. Disaster is the word, and yes I did the same panic exit I did in US market. And it took me longer in the black hole (not really out yet).

2. It is now in AEM (-17%), and Singtel (-20%).

3Q/2H Plan:

a. Not to touch this bucket until I see opportunity with clear entry and exit points.

Review of my 2018 plan / reminders

- continue learn more on fa, ta and put them to use (checked)

- continue to strengthen stomach muscle (checked)

- stay close to the market, but not too close (checked)

- crypto! (still no motivation / time)

- zero hearsay trade (checked)

- exit fun fund into mid term trade or long term invest funds (checked)

- form a Major-Event-Trade/Invest Fund with specific approach and stocks (forgotten)

- continue srs, cpf top up (checked)

In summary, 2018 YTD I did -10% for Long Tern bucket, +14% for US Trade and -21% for SG Trade.
