A Blessed Christ-mass & My Alma Mater

Its that time of the year again, and my thoughts go back to my school days, where for most of us, were the best days of our lives. You made great friendships that lasts the longest, you did not need to think too much about the future. You learn to grow as a person, the place where you hone your character. Great teachers do influence us greatly, I still think fondly of my two favourite teachers, Mrs. Foong and Mr. Timothy Chee - late 70s period. I am still struck by the tenacity, vision, dedication, devotion and leadership of Brother U Paul and Brother Vincent.

Merry Christmas everyone ... drive safely.

Hi Dali,
I am not sure whether most of us who read your blogs where is your alma mater. But I can confidently tell you that it is the St. Michael's Institution IPOH, situated just opposite the Ipoh Padang. I too have spent 2 years there but well before your time. Yes, there was Brother Paul who also taught me but not the other two teachers whom you mentioned. They were of a different vintage.
I can also make an educated guess that after you completed your Form Six you went to study in the land of Oz probably in Sydney and you might have completed a course in business/ accountancy/commerce and you returned to Malaysia and somehow landed yurself in a stocking firm as an analyst and the rest is history.
But whatever, quite a number of us including myself have benefitted from your "tips", although your strike rate was not as good as Tiger Woods. By the way I am still holding some of your recent and not so recent recommendations which were quite sound fundamentally but have not really taken off (e.g N2N, Evergreen fiberboard, MFCB, Coastal contracts, Ramunia) to name just a few. Perhaps, one day you will do us a favour by reviewing and revisting them again).
Anyway, I wish you a blessed Christmas and a New Year filled with peace and joy.
Oh yes, both brother Paul and your hero Salvatore Dali will be proud of you in your analysis of the stock market but I do NOT think that they will approve of your use of "colorful language"in many of your postings if they are present today
God bless,

Lol, you are correct... I think Dali would be Ok with my colourful language but not Bro Paul...

Just let me clean up yr portfolio...
sell N2N and Ramunia, the rest should do very well in 1Q2008.

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…
