Dividend from Metro and Stock Burst again

Ok, a reader left the below comment this afternoon,
" Anonymous said...
hi mr sl yesterday received a cheque $3000 dividend
from metro and my friend also received $2400 happy .
thanks you very much."
I believe that the reader have 50 lots and his friend
have 40 lots as the dividend is 6cts. I am not sure
at what price did the reader and his friend bought
Metro at, but the transaction figure should be quite
near to 50k and 40k each. I don't know about how
the other blog readers view, but this is quite a confident
purchase to me.

Regarding the dividend received, I will definitely tell
the readers to re-invest the dividend back into the
market after spending maybe 10% on a good meal
and maybe get a football jersey of your favourite team.
Even if the reader were to buy Metro again, he can
buy another 3 lots and his friend another 2 lots.
Don't underestimate this small buy as they will all
add up and eventually you will see your stock portfolio
become richer and richer.

Next, on 18th July, I posted in this blog,
"Ok, I am going to mention one stock that I have been
observing and done a read up. I believe that this stock
is the new QT Vascular as QT had since fallen from the
peak and lost the support of the grace. The stock is the
recent IPO Starburst, which had been bursting up since
its debut. The IPO was well-received and the placement
was also in "strong" hands. If you don't know what
happened, go read up SGX announcement. I don't intend
to feed you today. I believe that the readers will be asking
me whether they can still buy it now and how high can
the stock burst up to? I am not going to stick out my
neck and head this time. I also scare that they will burst.
Haha, joking aside, looking at its price action, as long as
it is above the 50cts mark it got the potential and fuel
to propel up higher. Take note that this is not a contra
recommendation and should be taken with a short-mid
term view."

I don't know whether the readers did notice that I
purposely bold and enlarge the stock Starburst,
as I was quite confident of its potential.
Starburst went to a low of 46cts and did a KRD
and it hit a high of 64cts and closed 2cts down at
62cts today. Let say a reader were to bought the
stock at about 52cts and suffered a short term
decline of 6cts, he will be sitting on a 23% in less
than a week.

During the Consumer Seminar last week, I specifically
told a reader, Desmond that I am bullish on Starburst
and Sinograndness. He was the last to arrive at the
seminar so I have the most time to share with him
my personal stock view. I believe Desmond can vouch
that I did tell him the above-mentioned 2 stocks.
See what happened to this 2 stocks in a flash.

I will continue to highlight some stocks that caught
my eyes and ears and I hope that the readers can
benefit from them. Do take note that the stocks that
I recommend in this blog is my personal view
and must be taken with a mid-term horizon viewpoint.
If you are satisfied with the returns, you can obviously
choose to take profits at one shot and bit by bit along
the way.

Metro, Centrepoint and POSH

Both Metro and Fraser Centrepoint reported
quarter result yesterday and I can see that
both are registering gains in the stock price now.
I saw that there was a discussion on Metro in
the comments recently. Many people still think
Metro as the neighbourhood retail store which
in fact, Metro are much bigger than that.
Go to and
you will know how big Metro really is.
To me, it is a deeply undervalued stock which
should be trading at much higher price than
what I am seeing now. But still, it is only my
personal view with a mid-long term investment

For Fraser Centrepoint, my view on the stock
is still intact. If you went into the stock around
the 1.5x level when I recommended the stock,
you are sitting with a good paper profits and
even taken the recent paid dividend.
The take-over deadline for Australand will
ends on the 21th and it will become a subsidiary
of FCL and it can only be more good news
for the loyal shareholders. Because of what
I am doing right now, I know that there are big
property projects coming up for FCL and the
readers will know it from the newspaper in due time.

Next, we will touch on POSH.
Some readers told me that it is not as posh as what
its name suggests, and the stock price had fallen
badly. This is one stock that was really battered down
from grace recently but I never really bother about it.
I believe it is just a temporary setback and the stock
will regain its former glory pretty soon.
I don't know whether the readers can still recalled
that when I recommended Pacific Radiance back
in Februray, it was trading in the 9xcts region.
From what I can see now, it is trading in the
1.4x region now. Not bad for a near 50% gain in 6 months.

Short post on what I read

Few days ago, a blog reader whatsapp with me
and asked whether I still read those stock investing
and trading books, now that I am also involve in
property. This is quite an interesting question as
the reader believe that I don't need and won't
read any books on stocks anymore.

Basically, I love to read and I try to read as many
books I can if possible. I will read, if I am not that
tired, a book for about 30 mins to an hour before
I head to bed. Frankly, I won't be able to remember
the entire portion that I read, but as long as I can
get the main gist out of the reading, the purpose
is fulfilled. Oh ya, I don't like to read ebooks and I
love the feeling of holding a physical book to read.
I belong to the old school when reading is concern.

If you are asking me whether I still read those stock
related books, then the answer is a confidently Yes.
I have a good collection of the stock investing and
trading books and I constantly re-read them time
after time. Each time when I go through an old book,
I seem to learn or relearn or even unlearn something
out of it. The same book can be a different feeling
and meaning at different phrases of your life, and
that is how I feel with each book. Although I can say
that I know roughly what is happening with Mr Market,
I continue to learn, re-learn and un-learn everyday.
We are all so fortunate that our libraries carry so
many good books but again, unfortunately not all
of us love the wonderful smell of the books and of
course the amazing knowledge and know-how that
come with it.

Nowadays, I read all sort of books, excluding novel
which I really can't appreciate, from stocks, property,
inspirational, and even sales and marketing books.
I try to read as much as possible as per my time
allow and then starts to implement or put them into
practice and use it to my advantage. If you think
that by reading, then your life will become better,
then you better think again and again and it will
not happen. You need to act, take action, and work
on it, use it and fine tune it and improve it, then
only it will become better for you. There is a
chinese saying, 坐言起行, meaning you should
act upon what was being discussed or said while
you are sitting down in a conversation. I say
坐读起行, take action of what you have read
while sitting down. 8-)

Oh ya, tonight there is the Propnex Consumer
Empowerment Seminar being held at Kallang
Theatre from 7pm. If you somehow can make it
tonight, I still have a few tickets left and I hope
to put them to good use. Contact me at 97509878
if you can make it and collect the tickets from
me tonight at the event itself.

Market View

Ok, someone posted the below comment on
Saturday morning,"Anonymous
Anonymous said...
You can always give Longkang stocks like POSH
again so that I can short on CFDs..."
When POSH went down last week, I received
many whatsapp and sms asking what happened
to the stock? Actually, did anything really happened?
No, nothing fundamental reported on the stock
but it is only falling together with the rest of the market.
Most readers who bought POSH will be in around
the 1.15 level and suffering about 10cts paper losses now.
If you ask me for an opinion of the stock now,
I really see nothing bad fundamentally, did you?
The market is going through a normal pullback and
not a crash as some readers asked me last week.
Frankly, I really cannot see anything "big" coming.
Sometimes, you just have to take a risk, if not,
then please put your money in the bank deposit
or a fixed deposit account. The stock market is not
for everybody definitely.

As usual, look for those stock with strength in this
pullback and be prepared to ride though the occasional
rough patches along the way.

You know, I like to work with people having the same
frequency or thinking, and not some who only like
to complain and whine like a loser.
道不同, 不相为谋, as simple as that.

Old Stock Lobang?

Ok, a readers posted 2 comments on this blog
yesterday afternoon and it is as followed:
"Anonymous Anonymous said...
Awaiting your post on stocks, property requires huge 
deposit and subsequent mortgage payment, not really
suitable for many of us.

Hope the Old Stock Lobang will return.
July 31, 2014 at 4:21 PM"

I have thank from the bottom of my heart this reader
and the rest of the loyal readers who have followed
this blog and myself, Stock Lobang, for quite some time.
It had been a great journey with you all with me all
these years. But I have move on and with all the
new commitments, I can't be the Old Stock Lobang
any time soon. I definitely won't be able to post
daily market update, I won't be online throughout
the market trading hours. One thing that I can still
provide the readers is my personal view on the
market and on particular stocks on a regular basis.
I hope that the readers can understand the situation.

To really differentiate between this blog from the
property posts, I will put future posts to my property
blog, Singapore Property Lobang  Delete
I hope that the readers will continue to support me
with any property deals in the above-mentioned blog.
Give me a day more and I will write about the 
current market situation very soon....

Propnex Consumer Empowerment Seminar

Ok, the Propnex Consumer Empowerment Seminar
is here again. It will be held on the 7th August 2014,
just 2 days before our nation's birthday, at Kallang
Theatre from 7am onward. Don't ask me what time
the seminar will end as it will depends on how much
my CEO, Mr Ismail, will be sharing with the seminar
participants. The higher and better participation from
the crowd, the more Mr Ismail will be sharing and he
can really really talk a lot with just a few sips of water.
I am sure that the members who attended the May
seminar will know what it is like when he is on "fire".

Back to the seminar, Mr Ismail will be sharing with
the consumers what is the latest property trend, and
share his insight and analysis of the property sector
and of course provide the consumer with enough
information based on facts and figures to make the
right property decision whether it is buying/selling/
upgrading/investing in residential/commercial/industrial
or overseas projects.

Once again, I am giving out the $10 ticket for FREE!
Yes, you saw it right, FOC and zero cost to you.
For the First 30 readers who contact me via whatsapp
to my phone @ 97509878 can claim the ticket(s) from
me on the seminar day itself. 

If you are unsure, clueless or simply don't know what
the hoo-ha about the recent property market measures
are all about, then please make yourself available on the
7th August and come and listen straight from the horse
mouth. Actually, if you ask me for property to upgrade now,
I will tell you to get an EC. No ABSD, No Resale Levy (for
the current EC projects only), Grants for First-comer....
Check the detail with me.

This is the ticket for the August seminar:
