Stocks That Didn't Do So Well

Some of you might have come across a blogger (ichi) who was pretty pissed off with my recommendation on Naluri as I did not answer his queries and then took the post off my blog. My bad, my apologies. I was just 3 months into my blogging venture and did not fully appreciate the do's and dont's. Btw it was back in end-2005.

Doing a public blog is a thankless thing. You highlight the ones you think will do well. If it does, good. If not, they will haunt you back. If you take the posts down, it will haunt you even more. So, I leave them on whether good or bad. If the strike rate is bad, the don't read la, no point following, I am ok with that. If the stock rises and falls and rises, I won't be able to hold your hand and tell you when to go out when to buyback.

I highlight stocks I like, if they do not perform well, so be it. I think they should do well, maybe timing not so good, who knows. Counters which some have complained Epic, RB Land, UEM World, Tebrau, n2n ... to me what I wrote still stands. They may not have performed as well in that short duration but that does not detract from what I wrote. You can always choose not to read.

yes Salvatore_Dali ... it's hard if you readers expect the miracle from you ... you won't get a thank note even when the stock you blogged strike the jack-pot (not that you're asking to be treated as god) ...

but when people start to follow blindly and dived into it immediately, you better pray the stock performs or else you'll get all the curses ... :)

cheers ...

Dali, just share your thought sincerely. But as you are famous (I think so because I see many people mentioned your name), what you write is influential & will affect a lot of readers. Automatically they will have high expectation on you. May this become a drive for you to write better.

But one thing, those not so nice words.... avoid using them if you can, though I sometime thinks that that's the way you feel you can best express your feelings. Hope you don't mind.

Trading decisions are always, always a personal one. Nobody should blame Dali when things are not going the way they wanted. We need a culture of respect, no-blame, and be responsible for our own trades.

Personally, I read this blog consistenly. Great information is free and published timely here. Be grateful.

All the best!

no one in this world has a Midas Touch.

readers must learn to make their own decisions and also take the initiative to learn instead of playing "Simon Says"

those who blame are those who are not cultured.

those who gain are those who learn & listen

Keep up the good work.

Nothing wrong with your recommendation on Kinsteel. A true 800% (on warrants) gain in less than 6 months.

Thanks again Dali.

say your piece of mind!

why bother, afterall this is your blog. Blogging is suppose to tell what in your mind without fear or favour.

those who choose to act on it,must take own responsibilty

After all why that "itchy" guy so itchi!

unless we got paid for it! ah!

self conscience, man.

Buyer beware, yah? Anyway, why did you put tebrau as not doing so good? When you put out the word, the price of tebrau was around 0.4-0.60sen. that's pretty damn good returns even tho price off high of rm1.9+

also, more than that, your writings go beyond the usual buy this, sell that stuff (tho i like your calls). Opportunity to see how capital market works at a more corporate level, thru your words. thanks, man, hope you dont stop blogging.

My Master, A National Treasure

REPOST:  Its been more than two years since I posted on my sifu. This is probably the most significant posting I had done thus far that does not involve business or politics. My circle of close friends and business colleagues have benefited significantly from his treatment.

My Master, Dr. Law Chin Han (from my iPhone)

Where shall I start? OK, just based on real life experiences of those who are close to me. The entire Tong family (Bukit Kiara Properties) absolutely swear that he is the master of masters when it comes to acupuncture (and dentistry as well). To me, you can probably find many great dentists, but to find a real Master in acupuncture, thats a whole different ballgame.

I am not big aficionado of Chinese medicine or acupuncture initially. I guess you have to go through the whole shebang to appreciate the real life changing effects from a master.

My business partner and very close friend went to him after 15 years of persistent gout problem, he will get his heavy attacks at least…

PUC - An Assessment

PUC has tried to reinvent itself following the untimely passing of its founder last year. His younger brother, who was highly successful in his own right, was running Pictureworks in a number of countries in Asia.

The Shares Price Rise & Possible Catalysts

Share price has broken its all time high comfortably. The rise has been steady and not at all volatile, accompanied by steady volume, which would indicate longer term investors and some funds already accumulating nd not selling back to the market.

Potential Catalyst #1

The just launched Presto app. Tried it and went to the briefing. Its a game changer for PUC for sure. They have already indicated that the e-wallet will be launched only in 1Q2018. Now what is Presto, why Presto. Its very much like Lazada or eBay or Alibaba. Lazada is a platform for retailers to sell, full stop. eBay is more for the personal one man operations. Alibaba is more for wholesalers and distributors.

Presto links retailers/f&b/services originators with en…

How Long Will The Bull Lasts For Malaysia

Are we in a bull run? Of course we are. Not to labour the point but I highlighted the start of the bull run back in January this year... and got a lot of naysayers but never mind:

p/s: needless to say, this is Jing Tian ... beautiful face and a certain kind of freshness in her looks and acting career thus far

I would like to extend my prediction that the bull run for Bursa stocks should continue to run well till the end of the year. What we are seeing for the past 3 weeks was a general lull where volume suddenly shrunk but the general trend is still intact. My reasons for saying so:

a) the overall equity markets globally will be supported by a benign recovery complemented by a timid approach to raising rates by most central banks

b) thanks to a drastic bear run for most commodities, and to a lesser extent some oil & gas players, the undertone for "cost of materials" have been weak and has pr…
