      Cathie Wood’s Portfolio, SQ and ROKU Stand Out

      $ARK Fintech Innovation ETF(ARKF)$  What can we say about 2023? We’ve just come off a truly challenging year, with a difficult bearish trend pushing stocks down across the board, especially in the tech sector. In this environment, transparency – the ability to see beneath appearances – has grown more important than ever. Cathie Wood, founder of the ARK Invest funds and a long-time booster of technology stocks, describes the current economic conditions as a crisis. According to Wood, we’re in a moment of declining money supply, deterioration of the commodity markets, and a contraction of bloated inventories; and Wood tells us, “I believe that the current market dislocation presents an opportunity for innovation strategies to thrive when equity markets recover. Fear of the future is palpable, but crisis can create opportunities.” Wood believes in allocating portfolio resources to disruption, to the tech companies that offer something new – a new idea, a new way of handling an old idea – that investors can leverage for gains. “Disruption can surface in surprising forms and at unexpected times. Innovation solves problems and has historically gained share during turbulent times,” she says. Wood backs this view with a move toward two tech firms that offer the type of innovation that’s capable of disrupting their market niches. Let's take a closer look. Block, Inc. (SQ) Block got its start as Square, back in 2009, and changed its name to Block at the end of 2021. The company’s flagship product, a financial services platform designed to meet the needs of small- to mid-sized businesses, still goes by the name ‘Square,’ and continues to turn small entrepreneurs’ mobile devices into card readers and point-of-purchase terminals. Block also offers the growing Cash App money transfer service, as well as app-based music streaming, web hosting, and buy-now-pay-later services. Cathie Wood notes that digital wallets, such as Square and Cash App, are in the process of altering the way that online business gets done – and so, their future is still in flux. She writes of the niche, and of Square particularly: “Allowing users to transact on their smartphones, digital wallets are replacing cash and credit cards. They overtook cash as the top transaction method for offline commerce in 2020 and accounted for ~50% of global online commerce volume in 2021. During the three years from pre-COVID levels in 2019 to 2022, Square’s payment volume soared 193%, six times faster than the 30% increase in total retail spending.” Block will release its 4Q22 results next month, but we can look back at Q3 for a snapshot of where the company stands now. The company reported total net revenue of $4.52 billion, for a 17% year-over-year gain. This top line generated a gross profit of $1.56 million; of that total, $783 million was attributable to Square and $774 million to Cash App. Square’s share of the gross profit was up 29% from the prior year, and Cash App’s an impressive 51%. The company beat forecasts on both the top and bottom lines. The revenue beat was modest, but the adjusted EPS of 42 cents clobbered the 23-cent expectation with an 82% beat. The company is forecast to show a 29-cent adjusted EPS for the final quarter of last year. Covering Block for Deutsche Bank, 5-star analyst Bryan Keane sees continued gains in the financial results ahead, despite the tough economic conditions. He writes, “Despite broad concerns about the potential looming recession, we remain upbeat on SQ’s fundamental trajectory heading into FY23. In particular, we believe SQ will continue pulling levers to drive margin expansion as the company increases focus on reining in opex while still investing for long-term growth. Additionally, we remain highly constructive on Cash App and believe the segment has the potential to beat 4Q22 consensus estimates as new products and services continue to drive monetization rates higher." Roku, Inc. (ROKU) Now we’ll switch over to the field of on-demand connected TV, the merger of TV with the internet. Roku, which offers users its Roku streaming player and content access through a subscription service, has emerged in recent years as the leader in this niche. Roku’s income stream is derived from the combination of subscription and advertisement revenues. Connected TV, by turning the old ‘idiot box’ into an interactive audio-visual entertainment and advertising tool, and by integrating the latest is flatscreen imaging technologies, is changing the way we watch TV, and that has caught the eye of Cathie Wood. “In 2022, TV advertising in the US underwent significant changes as linear ad spend declined by 2% in real terms to ~$70 billion and Connected TV (CTV) ad spend on the same terms increased by 14% to ~$21 billion. Pure-play CTV operator Roku’s advertising platform revenue increased 15% year-over-year in the third quarter, the latest report available, while traditional TV scatter markets plummeted 38% year-over-year in the US," Wood noted. "Despite fierce competition, last year Roku maintained its position in the CTV market as the leading smart TV vendor in the US, accounting for 32% of the market, market share equal to Android, Tizen (Samsung), and WebOS (LG) combined," Wood added. However, the company has suffered from the persistently high inflation, but even more so from inflation’s effects on advertisers – as their sales fell they scaled back on ad spends, which cut into the revenues and earnings of firms like Roku.

      My 3 Don'ts When It Comes To US Market Invest. Wanna Know ?

      S&P 500 performances for Past 2 years If there is one thing every retail investor need to realize is, the US market has a mind of its own. Just when you think the coast is clear and market will rally, it could plunge and vice versa. Above is S&P 500 past 2 years (betwn 28 Jan 2021 to 29 Jan 2023) - YTD performances. Index peaked at 4,766.18 on 27 Dec 2021. Back in Dec 2021, CPI was already at 6.5% and rising; 3 months before the Fed finally implemented the first of seven interest hikes in Mar 2022. Below were banks & funds house's Nov 2021 predictions on S&P 500 whereabout by end 2022 : Fundstrat (Tom Lee) - 5,600. Ever the optimist & never accurate in all his forecasts. Goldman Sachs - 5,100 JP Morgan - 5,050 Wells Fargo - 5,000 Morgan Stanley - 4,400 Needless to say, all these "experts" were way-off their forecasts.  Considering that most of them have been in this speciality field for a while now. Oops ! With that, I conclude my #1 of 3 "Not To Do" - "Never Listen Wholesale 100% What Wall Street Says". That said,  Believed its a team of staff collectively charting different sectors stocks before summating all information into a final figure. Too many cooks spoil the broth perhaps ? Could it also be a case of either (a) too much emotions involved OR (b) lack of emotions involved ? Debatable no ? Afterall "bias" & "indifference" are different forms of emotions no ? Time to time the market ? A lot of bloggers preach the mantra of "time in the market beats timing the market". While I don't disagree, its only half truth (to me). Huh ? This leads me to my #2 of 3 "Not To Do" - "Never Bid On A Stock At Start Of Trading Day" For illustration - Microsoft last week's (23 Jan to 27 Jan 2023) performance This is what I have observed over a certain period of time Regardless of market sentiments; its always prudent to wait & observe (minimally the first 30 minutes after market opens) the possible direction for the day. Refer to above diagram - on $Microsoft(MSFT)$ last week (23 Jan to 27 Jan) opening hours' trading behaviour Of course, market's direction would evolved throughout the day as news (Fed's press conference) or official reports (CPI, PCE, Unemployment, Quarterly earnings etc..) continue to make its rounds and influence sentiments With as much information on hand, then make a bid for your stock. Parting questions "As a rational investor, would you want to buy a stock at a higher price when it could be gotten for lower price ? And instead buy more units of stock in the process" ?. Might not be the lowest, still... My final pitfall watchout is similar to the first. However it is with a change in target. So ? My #3 of 3 "Not To Do" - "Never Listen Wholesale 100% What Financial YouTubers Say". I returned to investing in May 2020 after a very long hiatus Everything was going fine until the re-surface of SPAC (Special Purpose Acquisition Company)  With the "loophole" left unplugged, it led to the proliferation of all sorts of SPACs overnight Market then was awashed with liquidity as the Fed attempted to ensure US stock market does not collapse by implementing "extreme" Quantitative Easing policies. It was also during this time that Ark funds'CEO and all these Finance YouTubers appeared out of the blue; grabbing attention along the way. Hated to admit but they sounded convincing and they were forever "in your face" 24 x 7. Unconsciously, one gets hooked watching these "cult-like-gurus" and slowly began to believe what he or she said; with the filter set-off. Alarm sounded only when SPAC-fever blew over and just like that left a trail of bloody losses in the US market. It is a bitter pill to swallow and the book-losses {until today!} served as reminders to always perform due diligence before investing. Not because someone told you that Stock-A or Stock-Z is worth investing. Taking hints and leads as suggestion is tolerable. It needs however to be supplemented by one's own due diligence and conviction after homework completion. Remember, you are the Captain of your own ship - no one else ! Do you identify with any of the pointers mentioned ? Do you think there are other pointers not covered by anyone else yet ? Would you like to share ? Thank you ! Please "Like" this post ok. Thanks. The rating is very important to me !! @TigerStars  @CaptainTiger  @MillionaireTiger  @Daily_Discussion  @TigerEvents  @Tiger_SG  @TigerPM

      Don't chase hot stocks: It's easy to get caught up in the hype of a stock that's been performing well, but remember that past performance is not indicative of future results. Instead, focus on fundamentals and long-term prospects when making investment decisions. Keep an eye on market trends: Stay informed about current events, economic indicators, and market trends that could impact your investments. Have an exit strategy: It's important to have a plan for when to sell a stock, whether it's based on a specific price target, or a change in fundamentals. This will help you avoid holding on to losing positions for too long.

      Be cautious of stock manipulation: Some companies or individuals may engage in manipulative practices to artificially inflate the price of a stock. Be sure to do your own research and stay informed about any red flags or suspicious activity. Don't chase hot stocks: Just because a stock is receiving a lot of media attention or has seen a recent spike in price, it doesn't necessarily mean it's a good investment. Be sure to thoroughly research any stock before investing. Understand the risks of investing in high-growth companies: Companies that are growing rapidly may have high potential for returns, but they also often come with a higher level of risk. Be sure to fully understand the risks involved before investing in these types of companies.

      Stock Market Warning Tips three warnings to remind in stock markets Past performance does not guarantee future results: Stock market returns can fluctuate greatly over time, and the performance of a stock or index in the past does not necessarily indicate how it will perform in the future. Diversification is important: Investing in a variety of stocks, bonds, and other securities can help spread risk and reduce the impact of any one investment performing poorly. Be aware of fees and expenses: The costs of buying and selling stocks, as well as management fees for funds and other investment vehicles, can add up and eat into returns over time. It is important to be aware of these costs and factor them into your investment decisions.

      Lesson I've learnt over Trading, more than 3 warnings to remind myself!  1. Historical performance of a company does not guarantee future performance. 2. The market is incredibly sensitive to news, both good and bad. (Might not apply to all market but US yes) 3. Target prices of analysts can, and will be, revised. 4. Don't put all my eggs in one basket 5. Don't fall in love with any stock, it won't love you back (this was one of the first things a very good friend of mine told me). 6. If one is trading, remain disciplined with things like taking profits and cutting losses. 7. If one is investing in the long-term, then holding power matters. 8. Have a plan, and stick to it. @TigerStars   @CaptainTiger  @Tiger_SG

      These are my 3 warnings for investing in the sstock market. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Just because a stock or market has performed well in the past, it does not mean it will continue to do so in the future. Diversification is important. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Spread your investments across different sectors, industries and even countries to reduce risk. Be aware of market bubbles. A market bubble occurs when prices of assets, such as stocks, rise to levels that are not supported by fundamentals. This can lead to a sudden and sharp drop in prices. It's important to be aware of the signs of a bubble and to not get caught up in the hype. Lets all hope we can experience another 10-year bull run after all the dust settles. Cheers🍻.

      🌟🌟🌟3 Warnings To Remind Myself In Investing 🌟🌟🌟

      🌈🌈🌈2022 was a year that will forever be etched in my mind as one of the worst in my investing experience.  Nonetheless there are valuable lessons to be learnt from it. The 3 Warnings To Remind Myself In Investing in 2023 are as follows : 1.  Never Buy Shares Because of The Market Hype.  I learnt a valuable lesson when I invested in $DiDi Global Inc.(DIDIY)$  during its IPO and held it to the bitter end when it was delisted.   There was much hype and interest when it was first launched but in the end, DiDi disappointed its shareholders when it opted to delist. An IPO stock also does not have a good track record of its performance too.  2.  Never ignore a stock fundamentals when  buying.  I will ask myself these important questions - Is it profitable? Does it have a rock solid Balance sheet with good free cash flow? Does it have a wide moat?  Is the management competent and has the interests of the shareholders at heart? So if the stock does not tick the core fundamentals, I will not invest in it no matter how rosy a picture the management painted.  3.  Never sell my investments in a panic.  Instead I should examine the reasons why I invest in them in the first instance.  Controlling emotions such as Fear is an important goal to achieve as irrational actions can be taken when it is driven by Fear. From now on, I will think about my  investments with a long term horizon as Time is my friend and allow the magic of compounding to happen.   Will 2023 be a better year than 2022?  Absolutely!  I am optimistic and filled with hope for the future.  After all I am the Producer, Director and Actor in the unfolding story of my life.  I will seek every opportunity to harness my inner strength and build a portfolio that will withstand the test of time. 🚀🚀🚀🌛🌛🌛🌈🌈🌈💰💰💰🍀🍀🍀 @MillionaireTiger  @TigerStars  @CaptainTiger  @Tiger_chat

      Hold or sell? Run or stay? Believe that everyone is uncertain with the latest announcement made by $Metacrine, Inc.(MTCR)$ . When the President of a group being terminate his position, do you think the company still able to continue operate their business? Or dissolve their business is the onlyway to do do? Based on my current stock monitoring, believe that this company will stay alive for the next 5 years and something excitement will behappen very soon? Who'll be taking over them? Elon Mark?

      3 Pitfalls to Avoid in the Stock Market

      The COVID-19 pandemic has attracted a wave of new investors who may think investing is simple and the stock market is platform to get rich quickly. Some may have probably realised that the market is probably a bigger and way more complex animal than it appears to be as most portfolio get decimated under a rising interest rate environment in 2022.  With 2023 likely to another challenging year as recessionary fears starting to haunt investors, it is critical to know the common pitfalls and be prepared to avoid them.  1. Failing to diversify the portfolio It is human nature to have favourite or preferred companies. Posts containing headers such as "How much you have earned if you invested $xxx in xxx stock" are plastered over social media, and also how many people amassed large amounts of wealth and became "Teslanaires" by focusing on $Tesla Motors(TSLA)$ This may have prompted some retail investors to pick only a handful of stocks. The portfolio value would have vaporised by at least 30-40% easily if one has picked speculative, meme or overvalued stocks such as $GameStop(GME)$ ,$Palantir Technologies Inc.(PLTR)$  $Enphase Energy(ENPH)$ . Hence, it is imperative to diversify your investments to spread risk and reduce the impact of any one company performing poorly. This can be in the form of buying at least 15-20 compseis in various industries. Do note that buying an bunch of tech giants does not equate to Portfolio diversification! For those who do not have the time to do research on individual companies, ETFs such as $SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust(SPY)$ and $Invesco QQQ Trust(QQQ)$  that mirror the index can be good choices for long term investments.  2. Being too emotional and not sticking to your game plan.  One can be easily swayed by the market volatility and get caught up in the excitement or fear of the market. Most retail investors would either FOMO and buy in at higher than intended prices at an enormous rally or panic sell at a loss in a stock market plunge.  Emotions can derail your game plan as losses get materialised or market reversals after a FOMO diminishes your purchasing ability. It is crucial to stay calm and stick to your plan instead of making impulsive decisions influenced by market emotions.  3. Being impatient The stock market can be volatile as it does not move in a straight line. Unless you are trading, it is important to be patient with your investments as long as the companies continue to have strong fundamentals or exhibited good growth potential, such as Microsoft, Amazon etc.  What this means is not to make impulsive decisions based on short-term fluctuations. One should focus on longer term trends and wait for the right opportunities to buy.  As we usher in the year of rabbit, I wish all myTiger friends a year abundant of happiness, good wealth and prosperity! May all our portfolios hop to new highs and @Tiger_SG continue to achieve greater heights!  @TigerStars @CaptainTiger @Tiger_chat @MillionaireTiger @TigerEvents

      1) Never put all my eggs in one basket I.e. Diversify The logic is here is that. “If you invest in things that do not move in the same direction, at the same time or at the same pace, then you will reduce your chances of losing all of your money at the same time or at the same pace.” 2) Invest only excess funds Excess funds are the cash that exceeds the cash required for day-to-day operations. 3. Never sell during a down trend (under normal circumstances) Prices will rebound. "If investors sell when the market is down, they will realize an actual loss. A lesson many investors have learned is that if they sit tight and wait for the upturn to come, they won't realize a loss. In fact, they may even see their portfolios gain more value than they had before the downturn.”

      The good news with most trades/positions is that they are liquid enough to exit when you see some of these warning signs. Trading psychology can be a good predictor of when to exit a trade. A good example is when there is an obvious trend reversal. High-volume days are usually quite volatile, and market movers have the ability to influence trades that may leave you "holding the bag," and it is therefore considered good practice to book profits before such days.

      Warning for me and my fellow investors

      looking back I still remember, during the  2022 epidemic in Shanghai is stuck at home, has a lot more free time, and has been investing for a long time, and rarely sits down to write something. Today, it is like organizing this activity to talk about the reasons why investment are easy to make mistakes and lose money in the process. Here are some of my mistakes in 2022 that I would like you to avoid:  Make a Budget with fees:  ♥, don't believe that you can make money by sticking to your investment. Be careful with your budget. In investment, do not make money is a loss, if the investment does not lose money, then after deducting the purchase fees, redemption fees and other related fees, the remaining is the real income; if it has already lost money, the loss is even greater after paying the relevant rates. Be Risk Conscious:  There are also risks in ♥ copy investment. When the market is good, many investors feel the sweetness of copy investmenting, as long as there are risks in investment, expert trader can be rational in risk control, but the market is not rational, systemic risk can not be avoided. For investors who do not have much professional knowledge, they should always be risk-conscious. Only when we have solid investment knowledge can we effectively reduce risk, otherwise you can also invest in low-risk products with high losses. Ratings should be taken with pinch of salt: ♥ does not rely entirely on ratings and rankings...Although the historical performance of the stock is a reference basis for investors to invest their funds, it is not the only basis. When a you trade sbd join the list, the stocks and bonds invested may have risen for a long time. At this time, not only can I not enjoy the gains of these assets, but the net loss may be even greater. What we need to find out is the reasons behind the good performance of the selected stocks. Whether its performance is stable and sustainable over a longer period of time in the future is more important... @Tiger_chat @TigerStars @MillionaireTiger

      Cathie Wood’s Portfolio, SQ and ROKU Stand Out

      $ARK Fintech Innovation ETF(ARKF)$  What can we say about 2023? We’ve just come off a truly challenging year, with a difficult bearish trend pushing stocks down across the board, especially in the tech sector. In this environment, transparency – the ability to see beneath appearances – has grown more important than ever.

      [TOPIC] I will never do these three things in stock market!

      US stocks were hit hard in 2022 and posted the worst performance in 14 years.Star stock $Apple(AAPL)$ 's market cap topped $3 trillion on the first trading day of 2022. Yet on the first trading day of 2023, Apple's market cap fell below $2 trillion to $1.99 trillion.Apple is just a representative of last year's dismal situation, as Tesla's share price fell 65% for the whole of last year.For retail investors who hold many tech stocks, 2022 yields could be worse because FAANG is down sharply in 2022. Instead, short sellers made a lot of money on $Tesla Motors(TSLA)$ , $Amazon.com(AMZN)$ and $Meta Platforms, Inc.(META)$ .Wall Street analysts' were also wrong about 2022.According to the data, a year ago, equity analysts expected the S&P 500 to reach 5,264.51 points by year-end 2022. But the truth is that on the last trading day, Dec. 30, 2022, the S&P 500 closed at 3,839.5 points. During the year, I also experienced many irrational trades.

      3 Pitfalls to Avoid in the Stock Market

      The COVID-19 pandemic has attracted a wave of new investors who may think investing is simple and the stock market is platform to get rich quickly. Some may have probably realised that the market is probably a bigger and way more complex animal than it appears to be as most portfolio get decimated under a rising interest rate environment in 2022.  With 2023 likely to another challenging year as recessionary fears starting to haunt investors, it is critical to know the common pitfalls and be prepared to avoid them.  1. Failing to diversify the portfolio It is human nature to have favourite or preferred companies. Posts containing headers such as "How much you have earned if you invested $xxx in xxx stock" are plastered over social media, and also how many people amassed large amounts of wealth and became "Teslanaires" by focusing on $Tesla Motors(TSLA)$ This may have prompted some retail investors to pick only a handful of stocks. The portfolio value would have vaporised by at least 30-40% easily if one has picked speculative, meme or overvalued stocks such as $GameStop(GME)$ ,$Palantir Technologies Inc.(PLTR)$  $Enphase Energy(ENPH)$ . Hence, it is imperative to diversify your investments to spread risk and reduce the impact of any one company performing poorly. This can be in the form of buying at least 15-20 compseis in various industries. Do note that buying an bunch of tech giants does not equate to Portfolio diversification! For those who do not have the time to do research on individual companies, ETFs such as $SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust(SPY)$ and $Invesco QQQ Trust(QQQ)$  that mirror the index can be good choices for long term investments.  2. Being too emotional and not sticking to your game plan.  One can be easily swayed by the market volatility and get caught up in the excitement or fear of the market. Most retail investors would either FOMO and buy in at higher than intended prices at an enormous rally or panic sell at a loss in a stock market plunge.  Emotions can derail your game plan as losses get materialised or market reversals after a FOMO diminishes your purchasing ability. It is crucial to stay calm and stick to your plan instead of making impulsive decisions influenced by market emotions.  3. Being impatient The stock market can be volatile as it does not move in a straight line. Unless you are trading, it is important to be patient with your investments as long as the companies continue to have strong fundamentals or exhibited good growth potential, such as Microsoft, Amazon etc.  What this means is not to make impulsive decisions based on short-term fluctuations. One should focus on longer term trends and wait for the right opportunities to buy.  As we usher in the year of rabbit, I wish all myTiger friends a year abundant of happiness, good wealth and prosperity! May all our portfolios hop to new highs and @Tiger_SG continue to achieve greater heights!  @TigerStars @CaptainTiger @Tiger_chat @MillionaireTiger @TigerEvents

      My 3 Don'ts When It Comes To US Market Invest. Wanna Know ?

      S&P 500 performances for Past 2 years If there is one thing every retail investor need to realize is, the US market has a mind of its own. Just when you think the coast is clear and market will rally, it could plunge and vice versa. Above is S&P 500 past 2 years (betwn 28 Jan 2021 to 29 Jan 2023) - YTD performances. Index peaked at 4,766.18 on 27 Dec 2021. Back in Dec 2021, CPI was already at 6.5% and rising; 3 months before the Fed finally implemented the first of seven interest hikes in Mar 2022. Below were banks & funds house's Nov 2021 predictions on S&P 500 whereabout by end 2022 : Fundstrat (Tom Lee) - 5,600. Ever the optimist & never accurate in all his forecasts. Goldman Sachs - 5,100 JP Morgan - 5,050 Wells Fargo - 5,000 Morgan Stanley - 4,400 Needless to say, all these "experts" were way-off their forecasts.  Considering that most of them have been in this speciality field for a while now. Oops ! With that, I conclude my #1 of 3 "Not To Do" - "Never Listen Wholesale 100% What Wall Street Says". That said,  Believed its a team of staff collectively charting different sectors stocks before summating all information into a final figure. Too many cooks spoil the broth perhaps ? Could it also be a case of either (a) too much emotions involved OR (b) lack of emotions involved ? Debatable no ? Afterall "bias" & "indifference" are different forms of emotions no ? Time to time the market ? A lot of bloggers preach the mantra of "time in the market beats timing the market". While I don't disagree, its only half truth (to me). Huh ? This leads me to my #2 of 3 "Not To Do" - "Never Bid On A Stock At Start Of Trading Day" For illustration - Microsoft last week's (23 Jan to 27 Jan 2023) performance This is what I have observed over a certain period of time Regardless of market sentiments; its always prudent to wait & observe (minimally the first 30 minutes after market opens) the possible direction for the day. Refer to above diagram - on $Microsoft(MSFT)$ last week (23 Jan to 27 Jan) opening hours' trading behaviour Of course, market's direction would evolved throughout the day as news (Fed's press conference) or official reports (CPI, PCE, Unemployment, Quarterly earnings etc..) continue to make its rounds and influence sentiments With as much information on hand, then make a bid for your stock. Parting questions "As a rational investor, would you want to buy a stock at a higher price when it could be gotten for lower price ? And instead buy more units of stock in the process" ?. Might not be the lowest, still... My final pitfall watchout is similar to the first. However it is with a change in target. So ? My #3 of 3 "Not To Do" - "Never Listen Wholesale 100% What Financial YouTubers Say". I returned to investing in May 2020 after a very long hiatus Everything was going fine until the re-surface of SPAC (Special Purpose Acquisition Company)  With the "loophole" left unplugged, it led to the proliferation of all sorts of SPACs overnight Market then was awashed with liquidity as the Fed attempted to ensure US stock market does not collapse by implementing "extreme" Quantitative Easing policies. It was also during this time that Ark funds'CEO and all these Finance YouTubers appeared out of the blue; grabbing attention along the way. Hated to admit but they sounded convincing and they were forever "in your face" 24 x 7. Unconsciously, one gets hooked watching these "cult-like-gurus" and slowly began to believe what he or she said; with the filter set-off. Alarm sounded only when SPAC-fever blew over and just like that left a trail of bloody losses in the US market. It is a bitter pill to swallow and the book-losses {until today!} served as reminders to always perform due diligence before investing. Not because someone told you that Stock-A or Stock-Z is worth investing. Taking hints and leads as suggestion is tolerable. It needs however to be supplemented by one's own due diligence and conviction after homework completion. Remember, you are the Captain of your own ship - no one else ! Do you identify with any of the pointers mentioned ? Do you think there are other pointers not covered by anyone else yet ? Would you like to share ? Thank you ! Please "Like" this post ok. Thanks. The rating is very important to me !! @TigerStars  @CaptainTiger  @MillionaireTiger  @Daily_Discussion  @TigerEvents  @Tiger_SG  @TigerPM

      1. I will never invest in companies based on "Greater Fool Theory", where investment is made with the knowledge that the company is not a good business or too overvalued, with the hope that another gullible investor will come along and pay an even higher price. 2. I will never invest in companies that are purely loss-making without a specific strategy to turn profitable or cashflow positive at a target deadline. 3. I will never chase after hot investment trends blindly (such as meme stocks). Just because an investment is popular or has performed well recently, doesn't mean it will continue to do so in the future. 4. I will never put all eggs in one basket. Warren Buffet said "Diversification is protection against ignorance." Oops I gave four.

      🌟🌟🌟3 Warnings To Remind Myself In Investing 🌟🌟🌟

      🌈🌈🌈2022 was a year that will forever be etched in my mind as one of the worst in my investing experience.  Nonetheless there are valuable lessons to be learnt from it. The 3 Warnings To Remind Myself In Investing in 2023 are as follows : 1.  Never Buy Shares Because of The Market Hype.  I learnt a valuable lesson when I invested in $DiDi Global Inc.(DIDIY)$  during its IPO and held it to the bitter end when it was delisted.   There was much hype and interest when it was first launched but in the end, DiDi disappointed its shareholders when it opted to delist. An IPO stock also does not have a good track record of its performance too.  2.  Never ignore a stock fundamentals when  buying.  I will ask myself these important questions - Is it profitable? Does it have a rock solid Balance sheet with good free cash flow? Does it have a wide moat?  Is the management competent and has the interests of the shareholders at heart? So if the stock does not tick the core fundamentals, I will not invest in it no matter how rosy a picture the management painted.  3.  Never sell my investments in a panic.  Instead I should examine the reasons why I invest in them in the first instance.  Controlling emotions such as Fear is an important goal to achieve as irrational actions can be taken when it is driven by Fear. From now on, I will think about my  investments with a long term horizon as Time is my friend and allow the magic of compounding to happen.   Will 2023 be a better year than 2022?  Absolutely!  I am optimistic and filled with hope for the future.  After all I am the Producer, Director and Actor in the unfolding story of my life.  I will seek every opportunity to harness my inner strength and build a portfolio that will withstand the test of time. 🚀🚀🚀🌛🌛🌛🌈🌈🌈💰💰💰🍀🍀🍀 @MillionaireTiger  @TigerStars  @CaptainTiger  @Tiger_chat

      ⚠️ 3 Warnings For 2023❣️

      Though our portfolio was an eyesore in 2022 & it was an extremely hard 🎢 ride, especially for our ❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹 I have learnt a lot about myself and a lotof precious lessons, so A BIG THANK Y💗U @Tiger_chat for asking us 🐯🐯🐯 to reflect & leave 3 warnings for ourselves on what we’ll never do for 2023❣️ It’s such a Great Idea💡 because I’ll be able to find back this post to keep reminding myself when I need to. Given that there’s so many 🗞🗞🗞 we need to keep up with & the market is so volatile🎢🎢 up one day nearing breakout point & down the next📈📉📈📉 it’s easy to forget the lessons we’ve learnt, so let’s ✏️ our 2022 lessons down & strive to remember them together💪💪💪 These are my 3 “I’ll Never Do(s)” in 2023 (Hopefully that is😬😅🥲): 🥇I’ll Never Not Buy A Company/Not Add Shares When A 👍 Stock Drops More Than 20% & Is At Its 52-Week Low. ➡️ Things looked bleak as no one knows when the HKEX will recover. I did a lot of research on $Bilibili Inc.(BILI)$ & posted to share with the 🐯 community. Even though I knew that BILI was a 👍 buy given that it has dropped over 60%, I was worried that the stock might continue sliding🛝🛝🛝 & I didn’t want to be caught in a downtrend🎣📉 In the end, I lost out on a BIG opportunity to make at least 90% profit(from $15 to $29)💸💸💸 🥈I’ll Never Be Fearful In Holding A Stock When I’ve Done Sufficient Research💘 ➡️ Point 2 is related to point 1 but in a different way. Another stock that I posted a lot about was $XPeng Inc.(XPEV)$  alongside $Tesla Motors(TSLA)$  $NIO Inc.(NIO)$  I bought XPEV at a really 👍 price of $7.08. I didn’t sell it when it jumped 10% as I was confident that it’ll jump higher😏 When the market started turning volatile again, I decided to sell it at breakeven because my investing goal for 2022 was capital preservation & not to make any loss if possible. But guess what⁉️ XPEV jumped from 40% then 68% from my original cost price🫠🫤😩 🥉I’ll Never Want To Repeat Mistakes 1 & 2 Above💪💪💪 ➡️ Our 1st mistake is a lesson for growth but making the same mistake repeatedly is going to cost us a lot of 💔💔💔💔💔 in our investing journey💸💸💸 Fellow 🐯🐯🐯 What are your 3 Never-Do(s)❓Do share with me as I love a convo❣️ Please help to click on the “Like” & “Share/Repost” buttons at the Bottom Right Corner so that more 🐯🐯🐯 can access this information, many thanks🤗🥰 You will Greatly Encourage Me❣️ Follow me if you enjoy reading my analytical stock research🔍 presented in a fun & easily understandable way😉 As usual-🤔💭 Consider POV & Actions of investors + 👩🏻‍💻👨🏻‍💻 Research + 🗑FOMO & Greed = Investing Wisely 🤓🤗 + Accumulating Wealth 💵💰  @TigerStars @CaptainTiger @MillionaireTiger @Tiger_chat

      Three Warnings to Remind In Stock Market 1) First and foremost, I don't recommend using leverage to invest. When it comes to investment which I will hold for at least 5-10 years or longer, it has to be money I have and money I don't need for future use. In short it has to be money I can park and sleep well with it. It is important to understand leverage and use it appropriate (disclaimer I only use leverage for trading portfolio but never for investment portfolio). Regardless of one's portfolio size, a failure to control leverage can have devastating effect. Bill Hwang is an example of excessive leverage resulting in huge losses within 2 days https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2021-04-08/how-bill-hwang-of-archegos-capital-lost-20-billion-in-two-days 2) Predicting the stock market/ Time the market I have said it before that literally no one can predict the market not even the best stock picker can do it so why do we amateurs like to waste time trying to time the market? It is a given fact that everyone want to buy at the lowest price but who has the 'god like' power to know where is the bottom? Successful investors like Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger or Peter Lynch have managed to build a resilient portfolio with track records that consistently beat the market without timing the market. 3) The Psychology of DCA and position sizing  No one knows for sure how long a bull market can last, likewise for bear market. We can only use past historical data as reference points as a gauge where the market is heading. There is no certainty of course.  While it is good to have a general view such as bullish or bearish, a good investor should still invest base on your research if price remains attractive and with a margin of safety. The key is position sizing, stick within a comfortable limit and not exceeding it. Why would I still continue to buy if the general market trend can go lower? Because I know that having a view is good but market can easily turn. Take for example HK/China is generally up 30% since October low, some stocks even surge more than 100%. If you persist with a view that China is un-investable or China will continue to trend lower hoping to buy at a lower low. (I know some investors are waiting for Alibaba to go below $60 to take position, look at where Alibaba is now 😉). With correct position sizing even when market trends lower you will be averaging down your average price. But wait what if you continue to DCA and market continue to head south? Is that a bad investment? If you had done your own research then you should have that conviction that the stock will eventually recover. If you keep worrying about buying a stock and the price keep going down you either do not have the conviction in your research or you did not have a clear timeline for your investment to bear fruits. If a stock I like drop after I buy a position, I'll be happier to buy more at a lower price. It boils down to mindset.  Having a clear and executable plan and follow it and you should do well over time.

      3 Warnings to Remind Myself

      I saw this interesting topic that @Tiger_chat  pposted. I love warnings and you can often see them in my posts. I also read most of the posts but I wanted to offer something different. So I thought about it and wondered and wondered. Finally, I thought about what I would tell myself back when I first started in Jan 2022. Warning One: Spending time studying a stock Now, I hate studying. And prior to this, when I started investing, I didn't due my due diligence and want to invest in "all the shiny things". Immediately. Basically, all the stocks which people said we're good and would surely rise in price. When I first started, it was $Tesla Motors(TSLA)$ $Alphabet(GOOGL)$ and $Amazon.com(AMZN)$ . We know how all that turned out. I lost quite a bit before learning that it had peaked in early 2022 and I had bought these stocks at its highest points. I even bought DBS at $37. All these fell and never recovered from their highs. This was a good warning that I should never invest in stocks I don't know the peak of or did not do my due diligence to analyse. Today, I'm a bit more careful to only buy if I know the stock, which isn't much unfortunately, which is why I only stuck with Grab and DBS. Warning Two: Enter at the right price  This is indeed one of the most valuable lessons I've learnt and it is a lesson of patience. I have learnt from my purchase of DBS at its peak, that even if you buy a good stock but enter at the wrong price, you will only be left picking up the pieces. Today, this lesson is still serving me well as I force myself to identify a price point which is low enough for me to enter. This keeps me from purchasing when stocks are rising without good reason, only to fall a few days later. It also prevents myself from jumping onto the bandwagon out of FOMO. Warning Three: Trust yourself and hold on When I lose money (i.e. when the stock price falls) and if I'm sure I fulfilled the first two conditions, I will warn myself to refrain from selling. Having learnt from gurus like @Adam Khoo  about how the market gradually goes up, I know that the price will eventually recover. This is because I have learnt (or rather am learning) to live with the fluctuations. It has helped me to hold on and not worry.  Conclusion  These 3 warnings have helped me improve my portfolio. If you look at the fluctuations of DBS in the last 2 weeks, you will realise that these 3 hard earned warnings have helped me reduce my losses. I hope they in turn will help you as well! Have a Happy and Prosperous Chinese New Year! @Tiger_chat  @Daily_Discussion  @TigerStars

      3 Warnings to Remind Myself
    • deal2dealdeal2deal
      ·01-20
      First warning: I will never sell in a down cycle. Many experts are predicting a recession in the coming year. If a recession happens, the stock market could take a hit, and I could see my portfolio balance decline. When you see your investment balance falling, you may be tempted to sell your current stocks. Selling during a downturn means locking in losses, while waiting for a recovery could enable you to get that money back and then some. Hence, during a downturn, I will hold on to my investments and keep buying fundamentally good stocks I want to hold for the long term. Second warning: I will never use the money I need in short-term for investing. I definitely don't want to invest any cash I might need within the next few years. This includes money meant for my emergency fund or for purchases I want to make within around the next two or three years. Investing money I need soon could mean I end up forced to sell at a bad time. And it's especially important not to take this risk when going into a period of economic uncertainty. Third warning: I will never stop investing. With prices going up on many goods and services, you may feel like you can't afford to invest. But, the reality is, you can't afford not to invest regularly each year throughout your lifetime. Doing so means you can grow a good-sized nest egg for your later years. Putting a pause on investing would mean giving up the chance to buy investments when they're on sale due to unfavorable market conditions. @Tiger_chat @MillionaireTiger @CaptainTiger

      Warning for me and my fellow investors

      looking back I still remember, during the  2022 epidemic in Shanghai is stuck at home, has a lot more free time, and has been investing for a long time, and rarely sits down to write something. Today, it is like organizing this activity to talk about the reasons why investment are easy to make mistakes and lose money in the process. Here are some of my mistakes in 2022 that I would like you to avoid:  Make a Budget with fees:  ♥, don't believe that you can make money by sticking to your investment. Be careful with your budget. In investment, do not make money is a loss, if the investment does not lose money, then after deducting the purchase fees, redemption fees and other related fees, the remaining is the real income; if it has already lost money, the loss is even greater after paying the relevant rates. Be Risk Conscious:  There are also risks in ♥ copy investment. When the market is good, many investors feel the sweetness of copy investmenting, as long as there are risks in investment, expert trader can be rational in risk control, but the market is not rational, systemic risk can not be avoided. For investors who do not have much professional knowledge, they should always be risk-conscious. Only when we have solid investment knowledge can we effectively reduce risk, otherwise you can also invest in low-risk products with high losses. Ratings should be taken with pinch of salt: ♥ does not rely entirely on ratings and rankings...Although the historical performance of the stock is a reference basis for investors to invest their funds, it is not the only basis. When a you trade sbd join the list, the stocks and bonds invested may have risen for a long time. At this time, not only can I not enjoy the gains of these assets, but the net loss may be even greater. What we need to find out is the reasons behind the good performance of the selected stocks. Whether its performance is stable and sustainable over a longer period of time in the future is more important... @Tiger_chat @TigerStars @MillionaireTiger

      Don't chase hot stocks: It's easy to get caught up in the hype of a stock that's been performing well, but remember that past performance is not indicative of future results. Instead, focus on fundamentals and long-term prospects when making investment decisions. Keep an eye on market trends: Stay informed about current events, economic indicators, and market trends that could impact your investments. Have an exit strategy: It's important to have a plan for when to sell a stock, whether it's based on a specific price target, or a change in fundamentals. This will help you avoid holding on to losing positions for too long.

      I have reflected and learnt a lot from how I have invested in 2022. It was a year of lessons for many stock traders. Here are three key takeaways that I feel is worth keeping in mind: 1) Avoid leveraging: Leveraging, or borrowing money to invest in the stock market, can be a dangerous strategy. It can amplify returns in a bull market, but it can also magnify losses in a bear market. In 2022, many traders who leveraged their positions found themselves in deep trouble when the market took a turn for the worse. To avoid this, traders should avoid using leverage and instead focus on building a solid investment portfolio through consistent, long-term savings. 2) Be patient: The stock market can be volatile and unpredictable, and it can be easy to get caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations. However, this can lead to impulsive decisions and missed opportunities. In 2022, many traders who panicked and sold their positions at the bottom of the market missed out on the rebound that followed. To avoid this, traders should be patient and resist the urge to make hasty decisions based on short-term market movements. 3) Invest in blue chip companies: Blue chip companies are large, well-established companies with a history of strong financial performance and steady dividends. They tend to be less risky than smaller or newer companies, and they can provide a steady stream of income. In 2022, many traders who focused on blue chip companies were able to weather the market downturn and come out ahead. To take advantage of this, traders should consider investing in a diversified portfolio of blue chip companies for stability. Overall, 2022 has been a year of learning for stock traders. By avoiding leveraging, being patient, and investing in blue chip companies, traders can position themselves for long-term success in the stock market.  Please like and comment!

      Lesson I've learnt over Trading, more than 3 warnings to remind myself!  1. Historical performance of a company does not guarantee future performance. 2. The market is incredibly sensitive to news, both good and bad. (Might not apply to all market but US yes) 3. Target prices of analysts can, and will be, revised. 4. Don't put all my eggs in one basket 5. Don't fall in love with any stock, it won't love you back (this was one of the first things a very good friend of mine told me). 6. If one is trading, remain disciplined with things like taking profits and cutting losses. 7. If one is investing in the long-term, then holding power matters. 8. Have a plan, and stick to it. @TigerStars   @CaptainTiger  @Tiger_SG

      Stock Market Warning Tips three warnings to remind in stock markets Past performance does not guarantee future results: Stock market returns can fluctuate greatly over time, and the performance of a stock or index in the past does not necessarily indicate how it will perform in the future. Diversification is important: Investing in a variety of stocks, bonds, and other securities can help spread risk and reduce the impact of any one investment performing poorly. Be aware of fees and expenses: The costs of buying and selling stocks, as well as management fees for funds and other investment vehicles, can add up and eat into returns over time. It is important to be aware of these costs and factor them into your investment decisions.

      Be cautious of stock manipulation: Some companies or individuals may engage in manipulative practices to artificially inflate the price of a stock. Be sure to do your own research and stay informed about any red flags or suspicious activity. Don't chase hot stocks: Just because a stock is receiving a lot of media attention or has seen a recent spike in price, it doesn't necessarily mean it's a good investment. Be sure to thoroughly research any stock before investing. Understand the risks of investing in high-growth companies: Companies that are growing rapidly may have high potential for returns, but they also often come with a higher level of risk. Be sure to fully understand the risks involved before investing in these types of companies.

      No. 1 - I will never buy stocks in businesses that I do not understand. Without proper research, I stand to lose my hard-earned money, particularly if I do not know the company's financial viability. However, when I research and understand a business and its industry, I have a naturally built-in advantage over most other investors. If I invest outside my knowledge base, I may not know the subtleties and complexity of the company in question. Thus, proper due diligence is critical. No 2 - I will never put all my eggs in one basket. If I put all of my eggs into one investment, one negative event could damage my entire portfolio and, therefore, my financial future. Diversifying my portfolio helps reduce my risk so that if one of my investments underperforms, it doesn’t necessarily impact my entire portfolio. I invest in index funds, mutual funds, or exchange traded funds (ETFs) which is an easy way to diversify my portfolio through just one investment. No 3 - I will never follow the crowd. Following the crowd is another investing mistake since it doesn't involve research but instead mirrors what other investors are doing. Many people only hear about an investment after it has already performed well. If certain stocks double or triple in price, the mainstream media tends to cover those moves as hot takes. Unfortunately, by the time the media gets involved, the stock may have reached its peak. At that point, the investment is likely overvalued. @Tiger_chat @CaptainTiger @MillionaireTiger

      These are my 3 warnings for investing in the sstock market. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Just because a stock or market has performed well in the past, it does not mean it will continue to do so in the future. Diversification is important. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Spread your investments across different sectors, industries and even countries to reduce risk. Be aware of market bubbles. A market bubble occurs when prices of assets, such as stocks, rise to levels that are not supported by fundamentals. This can lead to a sudden and sharp drop in prices. It's important to be aware of the signs of a bubble and to not get caught up in the hype. Lets all hope we can experience another 10-year bull run after all the dust settles. Cheers🍻.

      Hold or sell? Run or stay? Believe that everyone is uncertain with the latest announcement made by $Metacrine, Inc.(MTCR)$ . When the President of a group being terminate his position, do you think the company still able to continue operate their business? Or dissolve their business is the onlyway to do do? Based on my current stock monitoring, believe that this company will stay alive for the next 5 years and something excitement will behappen very soon? Who'll be taking over them? Elon Mark?

      ⚠️ 3 things not to do in 2023  A reminder to myself 📝 ❌ Do not buy/sell in a hurry. Lack of patience  after wait few days Price did not go down, just like placed GTC order, i will itchy hand and amend the order to the current market, few days after i bought it dip more.  bought cheap/at the bottom, see price is rising and dip again few times, when rise again i will sell to take profit, but after that it goes higher 😁 ❌ Do not buy stock on news. Letting your emotion rule Bad habit FOMO saw good news immediately buy, especially the stock is cheap and cheaper, eventually become worthless 😅 ❌ Do not stop investing but do not over invest. Set a budget ❤️ only the risk you can take.  The greater the potential returns, the higher the level of risk. Make sure you understand the risks and are willing and able to accept them. Different investments have different levels of risk, diversify the risk too.  Hope i can be more mature in this jouney 😍 @TigerStars  @Tiger_chat
