When it came to investing last month, I didn't do very much.  This month I decided to redeem myself by investing in 2 counters, one a SG stock, and another a US stock.


Hong Leong Finance:














I was surprised to learn, as I did my research on Hong Leong Finance, that it is the largest finance company in Singapore with a network of some …

I have been generally inactive when it comes to investing in the month of September.  Apart from RSPing in Moneyowl, I have done very little studying and researching on stocks.  For one, there was a holiday trip with the whole family ... no looking up stock tips or exploring investing ideas when on holiday.  And then, there was the ove…

It has been a pretty busy month for me, what with an overseas trip with the family and a sudden increase in work volume.  I thought I would sit out of the market this month, and just accumulate cash for the war chest.  However, with the increased market volatility this month as a result of the trade war and the unrest in HK, some good …

I have not been using MBKE's RSP program for long before they canceled the program (tsk!), and thus I was left with some odd units of STI ETF, OCBC and Singtel.  I sold them all and bought FuYu.  Why FuYu?

Fuyu engages in the manufacture and sub-assembly of precision plastic parts and components in Singapore, Malaysia, and …

Not Iron Maiden.  Not Iron Man either.  But Iron Mountain.

With the recent rally, SG Reits are becoming a little too over-valued for my liking.  So I cast my sight further afield, all the way to the shores of the USA where Iron Man was born.  My search eventually settled on Iron Mountain, a U.S. Reit.

This month is quite a volatile month for stocks, what with the continual spat between Trump and China.  This trade war between the world's 2 largest economies, in my opinion, may not go away any time soon.  It might just be a precursor to a larger problem, the new cold war between the US and China.  It is not so much about having t…
