How does Trend Following work?

Trend following is a very straightforward trading strategy that can extract profits from up, down and black swan markets (rare or surprise events). For example, pretend you have no idea what way a market will go or for how long. Trend followers simply say that if Apple is trading at price level 300 and it starts to go higher -- buy Apple.

Can you make 35% returns in Genting Singapore?

Previously we talked about Why Genting is Dropping, one of the reason is due to the Global sector of Gaming, fund managers are dumping Gaming stocks globally. Our Genting Singapore is one of the weakest stock during the Gaming stock bull run in 2012-2013( Compare to LVS, WYNN, Galaxy Entertainment) and this time round where the all the Gaming stock is dropping, Genting Singapore just follow.

Read more on my previous post:
So now it is bullish already?

Base on our Trend follow system, Green candle represent Bullish, Orange represent Bearish, the purple line represent the Resistance. Currently Genting Sing resistance is at $1.12, meaning if the price can close at/above $1.12 the system will give a Bullish Signal.

If you have traded Long from Green to Orange only using the system since 2013, your return will be around 11% in 3 Long trades

If you have traded both Long and Short for this counter using our system since 2013, your return will be around 35% in 6 long and short trades

If you buy in 2013 at 1.30 and hold till 1.12, your return will be around -14%

This is Why and How we use our system. You don't need to predict where the price is going, just follow the trend using our system!

Yuuzoo break above resistance, sign of trend change?




Yuuzoo, previously know as W corp, according to our system it has been going downtrend since July 2014, despite the good news of Yuuzoo taking over the company, the price still hit resistance an make a lower low. After consolidating for the past 2 week, we see positive price movement last friday and today. Our chart indicate that if price break above 0.345, there might be a change in trend from downtrend to uptrend. 


If the price fall back to below 0.30, that is where we think downtrend might continue(cut your losses).
Below is some of the information/story of Yuuzoo, the first social media company listed in SGX.

YuuZoo completes reverse takeover of W Corporation 16 Sep 2014 Channelnewsasia

http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/business/singapore/yuuzoo-completes-reverse/1365096.html

Social media and e-commerce firm YuuZoo has completed its reverse takeover of W Corporation to become one of the first social media firms to list on the Singapore Exchange

aseanequities.com FEATURE : UNCOVERING AND UNDERSTANDING YUUZOO CORPORATION

Largest capitalised stocks with Indonesia business !

  • More than 80 stocks listed on SGX report a revenue percentile to Indonesia - ranging from 1 to 100 percent. Of these stocks, there are 13 with market cap above S$250 million reporting more than half their revenue, income or assets to Indonesia.
  • These 13 stocks have generated mixed performances in the year to date, averaging a 0.6% YTD total return. This takes the average three year total return of the ten stocks that have been listed for the duration to 43.4%.
  • The five best performing stocks of the 13 in the year thus far have been Sinarmas Land, FIRST REIT, Petra Foods, Bumitama and Jardine Cycle & Carriage.
Indonesia’s primary listed stocks currently maintain a market capitalisation of US$406.5 billion, which is less than half the size of its US$868.3 billion Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2013. Like China, Indonesia’s ratio of market capitalisation to GDP is between 40 and 50 percent.

There is no practical rule of thumb that a developing or developed economy must have a certain market capitalisation to GDP ratio – for instance according to Bloomberg, Japan’s primary market cap is 78% of its GDP and Malaysia’s primary market cap is 172% of its GDP. However, one possible inference is that the higher the GDP growth or trade expansion of a country, the more likelihood of some overlapping businesses on neighbouring international stock markets.  China maintains the highest GDP in Asia and Indonesia maintains the highest GDP in ASEAN.

Hence, there are also a number of stocks listed on Singapore Exchange (SGX) that report revenue, operating income or base assets in these countries. There are more than 80 stocks that specifically report a percentage of their revenue to Indonesia, that ranges between 1 to 100 percent. This does not include those companies that geographically segment their revenue to the region such as Jardine Matheson Holdings, Wilmar International and Olam International.

Of the 80 or so stocks there are 13 stocks that maintain a market capitalisation of more than S$250 million and reporting half revenue, income or assets to Indonesia. In the year thus far, the largest capitalised stocks that report their majority revenue to Indonesia have performed better than those that report all their revenue to Indonesia. The seven largest capitalised stocks that report partial revenue to Indonesia averaged a 4.4% YTD total return.

The 13 stocks are detailed below. The effect of commodity prices on the two mining, oil & gas plays – RH Petrogas and Geo Energy Resources have been discussed in previous market updates.
Source: Bloomberg & SGX
Together the 13 stocks in the table above have averaged a 0.6% total return in the year to date. This takes the average three year total return of the ten stocks that have been listed for the duration to 43.4%. Over the past three years, the Jakarta Composite Index (JCI) generated a 3.6% total return with a 10.0% total return over the past year in Singapore Dollar terms.

The five best performing stocks of the 13 in the year thus far have been Sinarmas Land, FIRST REIT, Petra Foods, Bumitama Agri and Jardine Cycle & Carriage. These are also four of the five largest capitalised stocks that report more than half of their revenue or income to Indonesia. The most recent of the 13 stocks to list is Japfa which, following the latest semi-annual rebalancing, will join the MSCI Singapore Small Cap Index effective 26 November.

Common Investor Mistakes - Tom Dorsey


Common Investor Mistakes
Below we have listed a few common investor mistakes.
Try to avoid making these mistakes with your investments.
Falling in love with a position. An account has limited capital, so
ask yourself if the position is the best one to be in here. Are you
tying up capital that can be put to better use elsewhere? Don't get
sucked into the fundamental story.that is, don't hold on to a
stock whose technical picture has deteriorated just because you are
intoxicated with the reasons for your choice.
Buying the stock right, but forgetting to sell it right. There
are two foul shots to make successfully with respect to investing.
You must buy the stock right, and then you must sell the stock
correctly. Therefore, once you buy a stock you must review it on
a regular basis; don't just forget about it. Attempt to sink both
foul shots.
Not having a game plan for investing. Investors will haphazardly,
especially in a strong market, pick stocks to buy, thinking that
the stock market is easy to beat. They fail to realize there is risk, not
only reward. Therefore, it is essential to have a game plan that
helps dictate what stocks to buy and when, and also tells you when
to sell or play defense.
Buying stocks that are extended. When you buy a stock that is
up on a stem, it increases your risk and diminishes your potential
reward. Rather, it is best to buy a stock when it pulls back closer to
support, thereby increasing the potential upside reward, and
diminishing the risk to the stop-loss point.
Taking small gains, but not being willing to take small losses.
Be willing to take small losses by adhering to your stop-loss points.
Avoiding large losses will keep you in the game. You will not be
right on every trade, so be willing to bail out and take the small loss
when the technical picture so dictates.
Buying a stock that is trending down, thinking that it is cheap, or a
value. Often, these types of stocks become an even better value
because they continue to fall in price. Ideally, it is best to stick
to stocks that are in an overall uptrend, trading above their bullish
support line and exhibiting positive relative strength. These
are the stocks that are in demand and should be considered for
purchase.
Acting on poor advice, tips, and financial media hype. Many
investors try to get rich quick without doing their homework. They
rely on the TV or financial media to tell them what to buy. Instead,
take the time to educate yourself, to arm yourself with a game plan.
Then you will be able to make sound, informed decisions. Take
responsibility for your own success. Donft rely on get-rich-quick
schemes and rumors. Do your own research.
Getting emotional and not being able to stay objective. Any
investor knows that emotions can be your worst enemy. Try to stay
objective. The point and figure chart helps you accomplish this
because a picture paints a thousand words. When looking at the
chart, cover up the name of the stock. Make your decision on what
the chart is telling you, therefore taking the emotion out of knowing
the name of the stock.

Share buybacks almost reach S$100 million in Oct !

  • For the month of October, there were a total of 112,318,000 shares repurchased by 29 stocks with a total consideration of close to S$100 million.
  • Among these 29 stocks, four stocks are constituent stocks of the STI – Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation, Sembcorp Industries, Singapore Airlines and Wilmar International.
  • The five stocks with the highest total buyback considerations in dollar terms over October were Singapore Airlines, Wilmar International, Pacific Century Regional Developments, Lian Beng Group and Hyflux. Combined these five stocks spent S$65 million repurchasing their stocks.
Share buybacks a simple process where a share issuer repurchases some of their outstanding shares from shareholders through open market transactions. This can be for a number of reasons.

Some examples are that a company may have surplus cash after taking into account of its ordinary capital requirements and financing for possible projects or it may wish to enhance the return on equity of the company. Additionally, if the company has an employee share option policy, it can also have more flexibility through share buyback to issue and allocate shares based on the share options that are exercised.

Once shares are bought back they will be converted into treasury shares which means that are no longer categorised as shares outstanding. Share buy-back information can be found on the company disclosure pageon the SGX website using the Announcement category and sub category of Share Buy Back-On Market.
For the month of October, there were a total of 112,318,000 shares repurchased by 29 stocks with a total consideration of S$96.6 million. Among these 29 stocks, four stocks were constituent stocks of the Straits Times Index (STI) – Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation, Sembcorp Industries, Singapore Airlines and Wilmar International.

Another instrument you may want to know more(other than Stock and Unit Trust) is the ETF, Exchange Traded Fund. Read the following to understand why some people like to buy ETF.

WHAT ARE ETFs?
ETFs are open-ended investment funds listed and traded on a stock exchange. They aim to track, replicate or correspond to the performance of an underlying index or asset. ETFs provide access to a wide variety of markets and asset classes.

WHAT ARE THE KEY FEATURES OF ETF?


Diversification through a single investment
When you buy an ETF, you gain exposure to a diversified portfolio of securities/assets through a single transaction.  The extent of diversification benefits depends on the components that make up the fund portfolio.

Lower investment costs
An ETF incurs certain fees and expenses such as the fund management fees charged by the ETF manager and other administrative costs.  These fees and expenses are deducted from the ETF assets and the NAV may be reduced accordingly.  Like shares, trading ETFs on an exchange incurs transaction costs including brokerage commissions and clearing fees. As ETFs are passive funds, the annual management fees are generally lower at less than 1% compared to the management fees of 1% to 2% usually charged by most unit trusts or traditional funds.

Access to many markets via a single platform
The range of ETFs offered on an exchange allows investors to access many  markets via a single platform. This provides an alternative for investors who are not able to buy securities listed on foreign stock exchanges easily.
 

Transparency
Investors can readily access real-time information such as ETF prices, fund information and index information on the websites of the issuers, index providers and the exchanges’ websites.  Market prices are published real-time through the trading day.

Flexibility
You can buy and sell ETFs anytime during trading hours and may employ the traditional trading techniques including stop order, limit order and short sales.
