Risk-Return Assessment Of Market Leaders

No stock is always good or always bad. There is always the price which makes a good stock bad, and vice versa. The markets have charged head-on and prices have moved dramatically for some. I would like to rate them on a risk-reward ratio as trades going forward, on a 1-4 week view. They are ranked out of 10, the higher the number, the higher the risk over reward. What we should aim for is getting into low risk to reward, closer to 1 (below 5 is acceptable). Bear in mind, it has less to do with company outlook but rather more to do with price run up and the levels they are at now, compared to perceived upside and the downside risks. These are my views and not a scientific exposition filled with quantitative formulas, ... its unscientific, full of bias:

Glad that you mentioned your ratings full of bias, so as not to mislead others. A recap of your "quick trading note" at May 22: next entry level of 1008 - 1015. At the time i am writing this comment its 1062. Guess you are going the way of Mark Hulbert, a columnist in MW, almost all his readers recognize that when he says its bull, its bear, when he signals for a bottom, there will be rally. anyway, thanks for sharing, sincerely.

It is some sort of reality check for all, ya. Whether it is a green shoots or false dawn, I felt like Art Cashin the market is going to have a major healthy pullback of 10-15% very soon.

Like Dali said, the equities could have been repriced ahead of the fundamental at local front. I will take a bet and to miss the current rally and let the lucky one to earn theirs.

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…
