Annual General Meeting are opportunities for ordinary shareholders to access management of listed companies. It is particularly important for retail shareholders due to their lack of corporate access on a normal basis unlike research analysts or fund managers. Naturally, this would lead to it b...
The quote above is by Winston Churchill, Britain's controversial but brilliant Prime Minister in the darkest period of his country during WW2. This was especially important as though Churchill had very questionable qualities as a person and highly unpopular, his steadfast and unbending spirit helped...
Dear all, it is with great pleasure for me to share with you all that News Straits Times Business Section did a feature interview coverage of Tradeview recently in the stock market column. I had the privilege to share my views on the stock market and specifically on retail investors' interest. ...
Entering the second half of another less than stellar year, FBM KLCI hit a 52 weeks low of 1502. Our local bourse has been underperforming regional peers. Year-to-date KLCI is down more than 10%. In fact, KLCI's peak in the past 1 year was 1684. It would no doubt appear that our local stock market h...
For many years, our local stock market had subdued retail investors participation. There are many reason why but mainly it has to do with the past financial crises. Whilst writing my book, I did substantial research sifting through past news reports and academic papers. For every cycle between 1987,...
Recently, I was shown a video clip on Facebook where a retail investor who suffered major losses in the stock market contemplating suicide and called up DJ Chan Fong of FM 988 seeking for advice. (For full video please go to DJ Chan Fong 988 facebook link HERE )  Briefly, prior to Covid-19...
Since publishing a book, many asked me, "Am I making a lot of money selling books?" I believe this is a misconception. When we think about authors, we tend to relate to Dan Brown or J.K Rowling. In actual fact, these are exceptions to the norm. Most authors are struggling through life before their b...
In my honest view, I assumed that the episode of Serba Dinamik was over after a majority shareholder decided to withdraw calling an EGM to remove KPMG as auditor and the Board's "agreement in principle" to hire EY as an independent auditor. Instead it went up a notch with a press conference being ca...
Dear all, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your support towards my book. It is now available in both MPH & Popular as well. Good news is that since its entry into the bookstores, it has climbed MPH's bestsellers chart and currently it is the only book from a local author that mad...
Following the much awaited Conference of Rulers, the outcome came to an interesting twist. This is especially so after the PM of the incumbent government preempted today's conference with his own announcement of the National Recovery Plan yesterday evening.I have previously highlighted the importanc...
The glove sector is a remarkable industry which have captured the imagination of many investors for the past 1.5 years. As we are now approaching the point of resolution of Covid-19, many of the glove stocks share price have retraced significantly from its peak in 2020. In fact, so much so that...
I have had many opportunities over the years to meet many businessmen. Be it big or small, whenever I ask them what is most important thing when running their business, without hesitation they will tell me - cashflow. Cashflow is the reason why a company can remain a going concern. It is also the re...
I have thought long and hard whether to write a sensitive topic like this especially on a public forum. This is because it would most definitely ruffle feathers. However, the reason I press ahead is because of the impending total lockdown in June which would likely once again draw large retail inves...
It would appear we are back to square one. How is it that US (under Trump) that was once the world's leader in Covid-19 with President Biden only on the job for 4 months have now been overtaken by Malaysia in terms of infection rate per capita? (Picture source: The Malaysian Reserve)With the headlin...
On 18th May 2021, I was one of the many of fortunate ones who have registered for the AZ vaccination through the opt in programme. My center was at PWTC and it was well organised internally. The experience was a first time for everyone and I noticed regardless of the age group or background, most ar...
The stellar run up of Malaysia's tech sector in the past year is undeniably impressive. Long ago, Penang Island was regarded as the Silicon Valley of The East due to the vast numbers of international semiconductor companies which set up manufacturing hubs. This created an ecosystem where supporting ...
First off, Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers who are my readers. I hope you all had a wonderful celebration over the weekend despite the MCO. Moving on, quite a number of readers have asked about "hyper-inflation" for the past weeks. To address this, let me bring all through a short journey thro...
I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for the support over the years. This is the 7th year since I started writing publicly on companies and the stock market. For the longest time, I have taken pride on being one of the more objective and honest writer in the inves...
Today I am writing on a topic somewhat unrelated to stocks. It just came to me after reading a column in The Star by Datuk Seri Cheah Cheng Hye, Penang born billionaire fund manager and founder of Value Partners listed in HKEX.     Picture source : NYFA.edu If you happen to read his column...
Readers know I am a believer in glove companies, I always have been and until now I believe that glove companies especially Hartalega & Riverstone are undervalued. My view remains consistent and transparent. There is no flip flop just because the glove sector faced a weaker sentiment in the past...
