Paano bibili kung sarado ang Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE)?

Sumasabay sa school ang operations ng PSE (Philippine Stock Exchange). Bukas sila 9:30am hanggang 3:30pm, Mondays to Fridays only. Kapag holidays, wala rin silang pasok.

So paano ka na maki-sosyo sa mga big tycoons ng bansa tulad ni Tony Tan (ng Jollibee)? Kailangan ba a-absent ka para lang dito?

Hindi kailangan mag-suffer ang school at iba pang gawain n’yo. Sabi nga natin, “on the side” lang ito. Sideline kumbaga. Di kailangang Continue reading

Paano bumili ng stocks sa Colfinancial online platform?

Ate and Bunso,

Since I can’t assist you personally during “trading hours” (9:30am to 3:30pm Mondays to Fridays lang), eto na muna reference n’yo. This is one method how you Continue reading

From the FQ Mom – to Ate and Bunso

$$$$$$$

Minsan, mahirap maniwala kapag walang nakikita kahit pa totoo ang mga “principles” na naririnig natin. Yan ang mahirap sa journey, kailangan mong maging visionary (parang yung Makati City lang, dati mga talahiban yan, pero yung mga nakikinabang dyan ngayon, nakita nila na yung bawat talahib na yun, matataas na gusali! at yung pinagsama-samang mga talahib, financial center ng bansa!).

So, tayo andoon pa tayo sa “Journey.” Sa totoo lang di talaga nagtatapos yan until the eternal kingdom is established. And we do not know when that will happen.

Sometimes lang

Ako kasi aminado din na minsan (kung hindi man madalas – at kung madalas man, gaano kadalas ang minsan? whatever!) sinasabi ko “to see is to believe!”

Kung medyo nakakalula pa rin yung pinaka-guiding principles natin sa ating financial literacy journey, may mga pinakiusapan (inistorbo, kinulit, kinalampag, ini-stalk — syempre in a nice way) akong mga tao na napagdaanan na itong journey natin para maging role models natin. Kulang kasi ang lifetime ng isang tao para makamit lahat ng magagandang accomplishments ng iba. So better learn from their experiences – nakakadagdag sila sa karunungan mo sa pinakamaikling panahon.

We went to BPI yesterday. It was a perfect schedule because I can go out of work just before the bank closes. And kids have no school on a weekday due to the storm… Thanks to Typhoon Lando (international name “Koppu”). But no thanks also because that same tropical depression, I just heard from the news, claimed around 30 lives before going far north of the Philippine Luzon islands.

The sched ended up just a near-perfect one. Why? We were turned down right at the door! Continue reading

Why become rich?

Dear Ate and Bunso,

I want to be very clear why I want you to be wealthy.

[ Gusto ko maging maliwanag bakit nais ko kayong yumaman.]

For Ate: to have almost 6 Million 30 years from now. Of course if she only wants that amount. And for what? Just read on.

[ Para kay Ate: na magkaroon ng halos anim(6) na Milyon  tatlumpung taon mula ngayon. Siyempre, kung gusto n’ya lang ang ganyang halaga. At para saan? Magpatuloy lang sa pagbabasa. ]

And more than that amount for Bunso because she has the time advantage. Again, I won’t force the issue if you don’t like that much money. Now, you still remember the story of “Ping at Pong,” right? In investing, the earlier you start, the better because TIME helps compound especially the earnings. That is IF Bunso, like her Ate, demonstrates that she can also truly save 🙂 Continue reading

That’s my goal for my daughters.

I had a bonding moment with them going to a BPI branch to submit the BPI Trade Account for my eldest. The bank representative seems not that knowledgeable familiar [or maybe I just had info overload?]  with the terms and conditions I read on the online application. Trouble is bank branches are just receivers of applications and can not provide much information about BPI Trade having disclaimer that they only receive applications, telling me what I already know as if they want to make sure the branch can not be faulted whatever happens to the application/account. That’s understandable.

Makes me think how many BPI Trade applications has that branch in Quezon City been actually receiving each day?

I presume too little, otherwise the reps would already be that knowledgeable and excited.

A number of bank branches I have visited lately seems not excited discussing about stock market or even their own brokerage house. Does it have something to do with the branch core business, which are deposit accounts and loans?

I feel they want to confine people to savings accounts so they can use the money to pocket higher earnings from instruments like stock market  that can earn as high as 20% in a year; and after earning that much, give back to depositor, who effectively lent its money to the bank, a less than 1% fixed earned income in a year (no tax deduction yet) !

Almost 6 Million pesos in 30 years!

If my eldest continue with the discipline of saving P20 pesos from daily school allowance Continue reading
