Has The Fed Really “Gone Crazy” ?

Image
Yes, this was what President Trump said after Federal Reserve’s recent rise in interest rate and signals for more to come which has caused the recent “market rout” where world major indexes dropped by more than 5-8% in two days including most of the Asian’s stock market. 
I am sure you have been bombarded by all sort of news headlines on “Market Crash “ or even active discussion about share price dropped or portfolio value decreased among your chart group.
Dow plunges more than 800 points in worst drop since February, Amazon and tech shares lead the rout( from CNBC.com)

OMG !! October : The Month of Market Crashes

Image
Do some months have significantly different stock market returns than others? I am not so sure, but many investors belief that October will be the bad month for stock markets and January will be better with higher than average return.
 Is it true that we can time the market base on calendar months like “Sell in May and go away “ ,buy in December for Santa Claus Rally “ and  January Effect etc…which sometimes may refer to as Calendar Effect”.(link)

有人欢喜有人愁
If there's one issue dominating the business headlines these days, it's definitely the " Keppel and SPHto buy rest of M1; Keppel to privatise Keppel T&T ". ( from The Business Times)
Depending on what was your entry price and average cost , some may make money at this offer price and some may still losing money. I am the one belongs to the second group as my average cost is well above $2.06. This is a typical “Buy High Sell Low “ case as I have decided to sell some at around $1.53- $1.59 , 2 weeks ago.By hindsight , I should have keep these stocks or buy some more to average down my cost … hahaha .

Asset Bubble : From Tulipmania to Bitcoin

Image
“ An economic bubble or asset bubble (sometimes also referred to as a speculative bubble, a market bubble, a price bubble, a financial bubble, a speculative mania, or a balloon) is trade in an asset at a price or price range that strongly exceeds the asset's intrinsic value

It could also be described as a situation in which asset prices appear to be based on implausible or inconsistent views about the future. Asset bubbles date back as far as the 1600s and are now widely regarded as a recurrent feature of modern economic history. Historically, the Dutch Golden Age's Tulipmania (in the mid-1630s) is often considered the first recorded economic bubble.” From Wikipedia.com

The Sacrifice We Made To Obtain $1.5 Mil of Dividend

Image
My last post on “ 3rd Qtr 2018 :Dividend and Portfolio Update” draw much attention as how we would be able to accumulate $1.5 mil of dividend without support from family and purely by ourselves. Some readers sent me e-mail asking how we did that and some with complement and kind words, which I really appreciate.
My friend LP ( BULLy The BEAR ) suggested that I should write another follow up post to highlight how much we have sacrificed in order to obtain such amount of dividend we have today. Another friend of mine B (A Path to Forever Financial Freedom ) even help me to think of the title of this blog post . Hahaha…
With this short supplemental notes , I hope to provide a more “balance and holistic” view on how we would be able to achieve what we have today and what were the sacrifice we made or need to be done in order not to give wrong impression to readers that it is easy to achieve this.

3rd Qtr 2018 : Dividend and Portfolio Update

Image
YES !! Is time to calculate and tabulate my dividend & interest income for 3rd Qtr 2018 ( $$$ to be collected in month of Jul to Sep). I am happy to see some other bloggers have started to show how much dividend they will be collecting, it’s really encouraging to see some had seen their dividend amount increased much on Y.o.Y basis and I’m not sure if this is also kind of “Nudge “linkas what Uncle CW8888 mentioned that this (by showing our dividend amount from fellow bloggers) could act as “nudge” for others / readers to save and invest in the long run.
