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.

If ever you go for a UITF, just choose stocks-related funds assuming these meet your risk appetite. Banks will ask you to answer a questionnaire to determine your risk appetite and investment horizon. Initial investment can be as low as PHP10K and incremental investments as low as PHP1K.

If the actual stock market is green, then there is a big chance that the equity-based UITF prices to be published by end of day (~5pm to 7pm) is also green. If the stock market is down today, then equity-based UITF will likely be down as well. As such, if you buy before cut-off (in this case by 2:30pm), then you’ll be able to buy at end of day prices. Same with selling.

Fully or partially pre-term your loans. I know this sounds so killjoy but hey, delay of gratification is always gratifying. And think about this. Imagine the interest savings you can get by pre-terminating your loans. Or the freed up money that used to be spent on amortizations.
