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).

In a gist, VUL asks you to commit a monthly payment whether it is for the next 5, 7, 10 or 15 years. During this time, a portion goes to protection by guaranteeing an amount in case the owner dies, suffers disability or critical illness. Further a portion is invested in instruments that work like a Mutual Fund / UITF which grows exponentially over time. This fund is withdrawable for any use, such as eventual retirement, tuition fees, home purchase etc.

When is the Best Day to Buy Stocks? (Based on BDO EIP)

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Investments, Stocks, UITF / Mutual Funds

The chart says 2nd, 4th to 6th, 9th to 14th, 16th to 21st and 25th to 28th seem to be good choices in buying UITF. My previous and ongoing investment, which falls on every 15th, is unfortunately one of the peaks of average prices. I chose 15th due to cash flow considerations and I did not think of doing this exercise in Jan2013. Just now. Hindsight.
