1230-1250

That has been my buying entry target levels for a few weeks now, and its coming very soon. Naturally now that I post it, many will want me to justify my call. Well, its my opinion and market reading. I mentioned 1250 in Seng's chatbox a couple of weeks ago, and nobody said anything bearish. Now we can hear 1100 or even 1000 being predicted. It has a lot to do with reading investors' behaviour and sentiment. You don't want to sell at 1400, not at 1350 but at 1250 you really want to sell. That's good enough for me. You cannot really justify buying levels, everyone has one. If you map earnings growth two years out vis-a-vis interest rates less dividend yields, the market is already attractive at 1320, but I still did not see enough bearish calls. Now I am beginning to, and it looks ripe. The additional sums being forecast needed to be written off by banks and mortgage lenders (approximately another US$100bn) has worked its way into share prices somewhat. I see 11,750 as very decent entry levels for Dow stocks.


The current wave down is only slightly related to elections, I mean there are no elections in other markets but they are falling also. There may be some foreign selling ahead of the uncertainty of elections this weekend, but its more overall bad sentiment for stocks in general. I see opposition gaining good ground this time, 22 to maybe 35 or 40 seats. Is that bad or good, who cares. Markets will rebound whatever the result as long as BN is in power. Hope that the stronger preference for opposition will lead to more self-introspection by BN. One can only hope.

Hi Mr Dali

Care to comment about MUI ? Would the 4Q 2007 turn to black send a strong signal that their turnaround story a success ?
Thank you very much

Hi,

Sort of agree with on entry level. based on last year's 2 crisis, KLSE tend to rebound after 200-300 p crash. My expectation is that market will continue to be jittery until this Friday. If anyone wants to sell, he would have to do it by this FRIday anyway. So hopefully it will drop another 20-50p in the next 2 days.

Based on PERs and Dividend Yields, a no of solid buys have emerged. Some good ones are trading at PER of 12-15X with yield of more than 5-10%. Amazing. And these counters have no exposure to US economy directly.

Also quite amazed that FMR is buying into Gamuda. I wonder if this will turn out to be another case of 'dumb American money' chasing after expensive Asian assets/shares.[as in many cases in China's private equity deals]

Cheers. TheRock
dali,

funnily there is not much call on your side for the call warrants. Suddenly everyone realised that these are only bull mkt instruments? or are they just convertible currencies for those issuing houses? either way....whoever that promotes the use of leveraging (that includes u my fren) deep down definately knows that u dont make money thru gambling (the odds will catch up).

So cut the well informed, learned & know everything crap and stick to creation of wealth thru sustainable ways (warren's way). This im sure u lack not the knowledge.

Uncle Dali,

Ben Graham's love child, lol. Good one.
instead of being professional in your views...u have stoop so low as to ridicule a lesser person such as i. At least you have shown us a side of u which only u and God will ever known. Have a good life dali (or whoever u may me). God bles u.

One humble advise from me.....always turn the other cheek or walk the extra mile....that would be the true opposition!

hellthy,

I WELCOME CONSTRUCTIVE comments... such like doraidd in the Khazanah's case. Look at what u said:

funnily there is not much call on your side for the call warrants. Suddenly everyone realised that these are only bull mkt instruments?
if u want to comment or criticise, at least read all my posting... read the entire first and second week of Jan 2008... I have asked all to sell out of stocks or u r partially blind??? so whats the fuck with the snide remark on call warrants?? when its good, where were u, u just aim at ppl at the time to YOUR CONVENIENCE and pick something ppl say in the past, u r a worm)

or are they just convertible currencies for those issuing houses? either way....whoever that promotes the use of leveraging (that includes u my fren) deep down definately knows that u dont make money thru gambling (the odds will catch up).
(Fucking judgmental... leverage is good if you know how to... if I get a yield higher than bank rates and lock in the risk, isn't leveraging good... u don't like it then shuddup... a stock falling will fall, with or without leverage... what is yr pt??)


So cut the well informed, learned & know everything crap and stick to creation of wealth thru sustainable ways (warren's way). This im sure u lack not the knowledge.
(Now this really pisses me off... IN WHAT FUCKING CAPACITY DO U HAVE THE RIGHT OR STATUS TO DEFINE & TELL ME WHAT I CAN, SHOULD WRITE... when did u proclaim yrself God's right hand man... go lick Buffett ahole... dipstick)

i suppose i'll be banned from further posting and comments......

as u can see, i didn't ban u... just keep to constructive criticism ... anger is good if u r angry at the right things ... even jesus was angry many times when he walked the earth ...

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



http://malaysiafinance.blogspot.my/2016/12/bank-negara-may-have-switched-on-bull.html


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…
