Economy? Bubble? Look at banks, just numbers.

Is the Malaysian economy in trouble? Depends on who you ask these days. One end says it is about to collapse. Another side says this is the strongest ever. Well, whether about to collapse or the strongest ever, life goes on for most working Malaysians like me. I still have to work hard and hope … Read moreEconomy? Bubble? Look at banks, just numbers.

Stock market is still attractive for me.

I read a good article about the state of the stock market.

EPF’s returns? 6.02 pct over past 10 years. 6.37 pct over past 5 years.

I received two Whatsapp messages just yesterday. I really do wonder why people would want to create them and why there are people who love to forward these kind of messages. One came with a photo of the EPF’s building on fire and said something along the lines of “6.9 percent announced yesterday. With this … Read moreEPF’s returns? 6.02 pct over past 10 years. 6.37 pct over past 5 years.

Two brands I like. Same company, soon? Money flowing into Malaysia, good.

On a daily basis, I drink two cups of coffee. Usually, one of it would be white coffee and another would be instant coffee with milk.

Stop talking about ‘fake’ competition. Build a profitable one please.

This is not a property investment related article.

Two totally different things yeah.  I was chatting with a close friend a few says ago. She was sharing with me about her … Read moreStop talking about ‘fake’ competition.

MRT 3 by Chinese / Japanese consortium (build and finance), probably.

Property stocks Malaysia at 7-month low. What’s UP?

If you love commercial property but does not have a couple of hundred thousand ringgit for the downpayment, you can also choose to buy REITs instead.  Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT) allow us exposure into the commercial property world at a very small investment. The returns are not necessarily low either. It should be better than … Read moreProperty stocks Malaysia at 7-month low. What’s UP?

Worried? The next stock market crash will strike in 2018.

Interesting piece of news in my Facebook page. Not from any friend but it’s a ‘suggested video.’ “The next stock market crash will strike in 2018.” I think the statement is quite worrying for some, perhaps. This is especially those who are not so used to many predictions every now and then. Some of which … Read moreWorried? The next stock market crash will strike in 2018.
