Why I Bought Indofood Agriculture At Its 7 Year Low and 1.6% Dividend Yield

Just a few weeks ago, I have mentioned in my 2017 Updates that I have bought some units of Indofood Agri (5JS) and concentrated about one-fifth of our portfolio. Half of this amount of investment was from me, and BF decided to jump in together with me on the other half.

While we were discussing about our buy, BF asked me about the dividend yield. He uses dividend yield as a gauge to know how much “interest” he is earning from his investment. Continue reading “Why I Bought Indofood Agriculture At Its 7 Year Low and 1.6% Dividend Yield”

All You Need To Know About The Engineering Industry in Singapore (2018)

Mr. 15HWW has recently posted an article about The Booming Electronics Sector. I made some comments on that article but honestly, there was so much more that I wanted to say but couldn’t in a small text box. It actually kinda made me pretty motivated to talk about how it’s like being an engineer, and where else can I talk to people that I don’t know? Thus, the birth of this post. (Thank you 15HWW for the inspiration!) Continue reading “All You Need To Know About The Engineering Industry in Singapore (2018)”

The Importance of Dividends

How important would you take dividends into consideration when buying a stock? Personally, I take dividends quite seriously, and it is one of the key criteria before I decide to make a transaction.

2018 Personal Goal Setting and Review

2018 has just started to set in and I told my colleagues yesterday that it feels like nothing much has changed – at work at least. Life still goes on, work still goes on, CPF interest is in, Nikko AM STI ETF went XD two days ago… Yeap pretty much the same…

2017 to me was a great year, in fact, much greater than what I would have expected myself to achieve. Continue reading “2018 Personal Goal Setting and Review”

2017 Cash Flow Statement

I’ve been reading quite a few annual reports this year and I’ve decided why not put my personal expenses into a cash flow statement. I think now my brain is by default suited to read the language of money as Assets VS Liabilities, Revenue VS Gross Income VS Net Income and Operating/Investing/Financing activities. In fact, I just remembered that I was supposed to continue analyzing Christopher’s Chicken Rice stall and I left out the cash flow statement of his business!

Not cool, Miss Niao. Not cool. Continue reading “2017 Cash Flow Statement”
