When to Sell Your Stocks? (Part 3)

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Investments, Stock Market 101, Financial Literacy, Stocks, Personal Finance

If it’s negative news then people tend to sell on news. Trick here is to be fast because before you know it, the price has already plunged to irrational levels only to recover in the next few days as the market digests the actual impact of negative news. Selling during the plunge itself may force you to sell at very low prices which you might regret tomorrow.

Cemex Philippines IPO

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Investments, Stock Market 101, Financial Literacy, Stocks, Personal Finance, IPO

I tried subscribing again for Cemex (PSE: CHP) via online broker, as I completely ignored the previous one, Villar’s Golden Haven (PSE: HVN). Was not expecting get allocations on CHP, so I was actually surprised that my whole subscription bid was fulfilled. I was actually expecting a raffle due to oversubscription, but no. Which worries me.

Better than Time Deposit: SMC Series 2 Preferred Shares 6% Per Annum

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Investments, Stock Market 101, Financial Literacy, Stocks, Personal Finance

At above quoted rates, this definitely beats your time deposit returns. Not risk free though, risk is if SMC files for bankruptcy, preferred shareholders are not the first in line post-liquidation of assets. Lenders will definitely be first, then preferred shareholders, followed by common shareholders.

TEL Me Where It Hurts – When Buy and Hold Hurts Your Investments

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Investments, Stock Market 101, Fundamental Analysis, Stocks, UITF / Mutual Funds, Technical Analysis, Personal Finance

What happened to TEL shows how Buy and Hold (Forever) can hurt Juan’s investments. Those who bought TEL in 2006, hoping to gain much from it, will be depressed to see that after 10 years, there wasn’t any capital appreciation. Wasted time. Wasted paper gains all those years. I hope not a lot of people did that. Though again, a small compensation is the dividends so in that sense, it is still a lot better off than time deposits (even if invested capital did not appreciate).
