Why Make Your Life So Difficult?

Before you get angry with my question in the headline, allow me to explain why I ask this question. According to Warren Buffett, my value investing role model and world’s richest investor, he once claimed in his famous article, "Superinvestors of Graham-and-Doddsville", written in 1984 “There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult” - Pg 15, Reprinted from Her ...

CPF for Retirement? True or Myth?

I have been reading news, insights and comments regarding the recent CPF saga in Singapore. I have no political affiliation and offer no solution to a complex national issue. However, due my own humble background and tough upbringing, I realized one distinction at age 11 -- "No one owes me a living”. Hence, from that moment, I made sure I work towards self-reliance and financial independence as soon as poss ...

A Great Business Does Not Mean a Great Investment

I was in bed this morning when Bloomberg pop up the following headline on my iPhone, “FaceBook to buy Messaging App Whatsapp for $19B” I believe this is one of the largest online utility platform acquisition in the last 3 years. To be exact, $4B cash, $12B in FaceBook shares and $3B in Restricted shares (Pretty smart because FB’s own valuation is also pretty rich at P/E of 103). So is Whatsapp a good busine ...

Should You Worry About The Stock Market?

One of the most common comment that I get often when conducting my Value Investing seminar is, “But the stock market is turning bad or the stock market is very high now”. I usually smile because I know that most people just focus on the market movement, especially the indices such as STI, KLSE, Dow Jones, Nasdaq, Hang Seng etc. Little did they realize that all these indices are actually made up by a selecte ...

Blumont Wiped Off By 95% Within 3 days!

4 weeks ago, my father in-law asked me about one stock that his trader friend tipped him to buy: Blumont at $1.50 per share. His friend claimed that the stock will climb to $3 based on "insider news". A day later it raised to $1.85 and some was convinced that a "trend momentum" was building with "sustainable volume" while showing some quick profits made from Blumont on FB. I did a quick study and in less th ...

Life Starts at 60, How Long Will Funds Last?

I'm glad that this article (Life Starts at 60, How Long Will Funds Last?) appeared in The Sunday Times because we have been educating and warning Singaporeans for years that your CPF (pension fund) will never allow you to retire based on just 2.5%/4% interest earned annually. This is especially true as you live longer now. We are now ranked fourth for having one of highest average lifespans in the world: 84 ...

From a Broken Family to Millionaire at Age 34

My name is Ken and I come from a humble background. Most would say I was even born poor. I also wasn't born with any superhuman talent, ability or intellect as well. I went to the 2nd-worst school in my country, had a sub-average academic life and got sub-average grades. I only started using English when I was 15, and as fate would have it -- I suffer from dyslexia and till today, I still can't spell right. ...

How I Made $400,000 Investing with my CPF (Part 4)

I wrote Part 1 back on 11 Sep 2012 and showed how I used my hidden assets (CPF/EPF/pension) to achieve financial freedom. In that post, I shared how my CPF investments paid (and continues to pay) for my HDB flat and the mortgage payments with pure passive dividend income. In other words, I got my HDB flat for FREE. As of Aug 2012, my CPF capital return is 125% over three years (excluding dividends) compared ...
