Crush

[Crush is natural human experience like investing. But both can be disastrous in the short-term 🙂 Enjoy both journey keeping sight of longer time horizon.Labyu!]

I’m borrowing a drawing from the bunso’s Facebook post. The comic strip has been altered for the purpose of this post.  I’m yet to see if this is her notebook or her classmate’s when I see the #kidinvestors in few days.

I’m not surprised if she knows the word crush now. Before she even learned of that word, I already discovered she had a crush on someone at a very young age.

What is a nice investment?

Simply put, how you live your life can be the nicest (best) investment you can ever have/do because this has impact in your present and future life as well as the afterlife (we believe in that) when your mission on earth is over.

Have you been living life out of “love,” regardless it’s Valentine’s day, or otherwise? I think that’s a very important review question that will dictate your purposes for investing.

While living in this planet, some investments will give you tears as exemplified  in the latest ad (below) of a company you partly-own 🙂 😉  [ sshh! Don’t tell anyone you own few Jollibee mascots 😉 that earn money during kiddie parties. ] Continue reading

Bear Market?

Sounds like the favorite of the two of you, right? Yung Teddy bear.

Pero ang tinutukoy ko dito yung nangyayari sa economy ng bansa when the stock market is tanking. Bumabagsak ang mga presyo kahit ng malalaking companies!

Hindi ka matutuwa sa “market bear” na ito tulad ng pagka-aliw n’yo sa “teddy bear” na gusto n’yo nga bilhin agad kapag nadadaanan natin dun sa SM Mall (SMPH) kasi ang sarap gawing unan at katabi sa pagtulog. 🙂

Madidismaya kayo tingnan ngayon ang inyong mga portfolio dahil namumula at malamang double digit ang losses!

Nakakatakot! Dahil parang biglang naabo yung malaking bahagi ng perang ipinahiram ninyo kina Tony Tan ng Jollibee (JFC) at iba pang malalaking Tycoons ng Pilipinas.

Alam n’yo ba? I realized na kung meron mang dapat i-master sa stock investing, ito yung emotion of FEAR. Kahit saan naman di ba, kapag naunahan ka ng takot, talo ka na agad!

Dahil sa fear, nasisiraan ka ng loob. Maraming tao ngayon, nagpa-panic selling dahil bumubulusok ang mga presyo nung binili nilang stocks. At dahil binenta nila ng lugi pa, nakuha nila yung “actual loss” na dapat ay Continue reading

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

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
