Hope As A Thesis

Fortune Favours The Brave...😅 ...and never helps a man who does not help himself. Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. Even with good fortune, you need to be able to execute. One example was during the March 2020 Covid situation which led to the a vaporization of market value. In that situation...did you panic or were you prepared enough to execute? If your investment thesis is hope, it might not stand the test of time. As always, "Come for the laughs, st

It's Magic...

If You Don't Know What You Want, You End Up With A Lot You Don't "If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there." That's nice if you are going on an adventure. Not so nice for your investment journey. It will take awhile, but do what you are comfortable with, and be aware of red flags. It's not a race with everyone, run at your own pace. As always, "Come for the laughs, stay for the fun times". #investing #wizard #magic #investment #joke #comic #confundo #

Noise

Not everything that counts can be counted & not everything that can be counted counts..😂 There's a lot of noise out there. Not everything matters, and you definitely don't need to know every single thing to to invest in something. You just need to know enough of what really matters. Here's a fun article by Morgan Housel's on interest rates: https://www.fool.com/investing/general/2015/12/16/a-straightforward-guide-to-what-stocks-do-when-int.aspx?fbclid=IwAR1e70NZXNIXjMPY9QqU9

So Luck...Much Skill

One shot...one kill. No luck, all skill...😂 Is investing an art or science? Is it all luck or skill? In the short term, especially in the day to day or even month to month period, prices can go up and down, sometimes for no good reason. However, over the years, its a totally different ball game. That is when you can tell if things are panning out. It's always good to stay levelled, not to panic too much (it's human nature to panic abit, not many of us can can get used to a 5

Keep Calm & Carry On

Keep Calm & Invest On...😂 The market will always have ups and downs. We can't do anything about that. We can only control our own emotions, and more importantly what we invest in. Calmness comes from knowing your investment thesis. If you don't know what you stand for, you will fall for anything. As always, "Come for the laughs, stay for the fun times". #investing #investment #zen #calm #keepcalmandcarryon #alreadydown #down #joke

Investing Life

I Didn't Choose The Investing Life, The Investing Life Chose Me...🤣 Investing is important. But there are also other things to life. Most of us invest to gain time, the freedom to do what we want, when we want. Try not to end up letting it engulf your entire life instead. Live a little. As always, "Come for the laughs, stay for the fun times". #investinglife #funny #cookiemonster #meaning #joke #investment

It's Probably You...

Know What You Stand For Books, classes and mentors are important, and they do matter. However, the other half (or even more) of the equation lies with you. Even if the best recommendation falls in your lap, one cannot follow conviction. "You can borrow someone else's stock ideas, but you can't borrow their conviction." You have to know what you are standing for, otherwise you will fall for anything, even a 1% fall in share price. Don't be Harry 🤣 As always, "Come for the lau

Not All Who Wander Are Lost...

...But There Are Those Who Definitely Are... There are definitely those that understand and make use of derivatives to profit, in a big way. Used appropriately, derivatives are helpful to hedge certain risks. To profit from them is a whole different ball game, and not everyone may be able to handle them. Over time, the market has this uncanny ability to humble us, especially so for the over confident ones. Those who think they know everything, will learn nothing. Investing is

There Is No Perfect Time...Just Do It

Making Your 1st Investment? Now Is As Good A Time As Any Some things in life, if you put in the work, you just have to go for it. It won't be perfect, it never is at the beginning. But that's a start, and its all that matters. Dream big. Start small. But most of all, start. As always, "Come for the laughs, stay for the fun times". #timing #markettiming #leapoffaith #faith #easytosay #first #investment #believe #start #dreambig #startsmall

It's Time For A Good Meal

There's Things Other than the Food? Yup. Some have the door gift too. Jokes aside, if you are able to attend, it might be good to attend an AGM at least once to get a feel of things. This might not make or break your investment decision, but it could help you as one part of the puzzle. In the past, we might only be able to attend those locally. However with the situation now, it might actually be easier with virtual AGMs being a thing. The downside being no food or door gifts

AI Is No Match For Natural Stupidity

"Once you trust a self-driving car with your life, you pretty much will trust AI with anything..." Artificial Intelligence is the "in" thing now. All the algorithms, machine learning, robo-adviser stuff, with the FAANGs and the BATs taking over the world. Don't get me wrong, I believe AI is a great help to us, and is here to stay. And those FAANG/BAT companies are really good businesses. By the way, if you do not have any idea on this AI stuff, Lee Kai-Fu's "AI Superpowers: C
