Taking The Bull By The Horns

May 10, 2009

Are you trying to invest on your own?

Many retail investors are investing by themselves and try various strategies to maximise their return / beat the market.

Some investors like to analyse and pick stocks. Others attempt to choose from a list of unit trusts.

Retail investors think that their own intelligence & skills are above average. 

Logically, it’s impossible for us to outperform the market when information about a particular company is know by the public.Both buyers and sellers know the same information can’t make money from each other.

It’s impossible for investors to beat the market by investing on their own. It would be  alright to think that for each person who beat the market, there must be some investors who are underperforming the market.

Example, let’s say Bursa Malaysia has 100 investors only and the sum of all money invested is RM 1 mil. In order for you to outperform the market, someone must be underperforming by an equal amount.

But what is the probability of success for a retail investor to beat a well organised investment fund?

You are not competing with your neighbour only but actually the whole world including mutual funds,Government linked funds,foreign funds,hedge funds and others.To make some money out of these big funds, you might need an I.Q similar to Albert Einstein, or more.

The truth is,you can’t make money by investing alone and trying to beat the returns offered by big funds.Big funds have accessed to SENSITIVE INFORMATION through their BUSINESS NETWORK. Any information that you and I know have already been priced into the share price. 

Just try to visit Bursa Malaysia in KL / nearest brokerage office. You’ll see a lot of retired senior folks acting like “Mr. Know It All”.

I really pity them because they are “gambling” away their hard earned money which is supposed to be their retirement fund.They don’t really know what they’re doing. Mass Media are also responsible for this because they are REPORTING whatever stuffs FEEDED to them WITHOUT ANALYSING any information and come out with at least TWO DIFFERENT VIEWS.Well,that’s why their occupation is named “REPORTERS” not “ANALYSTS”.

But most analysts are also “pressured” to find ways to MASK the truth with flowerly WORDS in their reports. Try to read these reports here and tell me whether they help you to make a better investment decision.Or Are these reports trying to MISLED YOU?You really need to read these colourful reports with your BRAINS WIDE OPEN, not EYES ONLY.

After obtaining CFA and working with a famous investment bank for years, I felt indebted to the public because some of the reports which have been published by me (with the directive from CEO) may had caused you/parents/uncles/aunts lost huge sweat money in Bursa Malaysia. I felt bad but I still have to bring back food on for my family.Therefore, I created this blog to do some good KARMA.In this blog,I will recommend companies which I have “inside” information but it can’t be so obvious because I still want to keep my CFA license.

Please browse my previous recommendations and you’ll find that most of my recommendations make money if you still holding them until today (Buy Mah Sing Group, ahem)

Actually, what I’m trying to tell is almost two-thirds of your competitors is made up of mutual fund managers, pension funds, insurance companies, trusts/foundations, and banks. So, do you want to try to beat the market like Warren Buffet? Do you think you have the INFORMATION to outperform the teams of full-time professionals? These teams are well-funded and have well-staffed research departments. If you’re confident that you can beat them, then you’re probably trying to commit financial suicide

But please go ahead and try because you don’t have to take whatever I’m feeding you right now.

Bear Market Rally Is Ending !!!

May 7, 2009
To gauge whether this is a bear market rally,let’s recollect some of the comment given by the pros:
George Soros
“It’s a bear-market rally because we have not yet turned the economy around,”. “This isn’t a financial crisis like all the other financial crises that we have experienced in our lifetime.”



Warren Buffet

” Yeah, it would be too soon. We are not reaching the end. At some point, we’re going to reach the end and I don’t know when that will be, but I know whatever the day is, May 4, in terms of the figures we’re getting out of all our businesses. The American economy is very slow and at the moment and, still getting slower. But that will turn and I can’t predict when. I hope it’s very soon. “
Wilbur Ross, Chairman and CEO, WL Ross & Co, said
 “the US government’s stimulus programmes have prevented the economy from going off the cliff. But was quick to add that the revival in the US economy will take time.He feels a V-shape recovery in the near-term is unlikely. “
Tan Teng Boo
“We are in the early stage of a bull market.”
“the economic outlook for the Asia and the Pacific region will take longer than other parts of the world to recover from the global slow-down”
Volume in KLCI has been surging but the index is directionless now. That’s why the index gain so little with such a huge volume.I think small investors are jumping into the market and big government funds are selling their shares now.
This situation may continue for quite a long time because the funds which are holding huge volume of shares can only sell a billion shares per day.
The big funds can’t sell them at once because the volume can’t be taken by small investors in a day. They need to do it slowly to avoid massive selling in the market which may spook small investors. If small investors turn their heads away,big funds will be unable to unload their shares.
I believe the funds still need a few weeks to unload their shares to retail investors.When all the shares have been unloaded into the market, the KLCI index will start to drop slowly but daily. This happens because small investors who are mainly speculators/traders/pigs , will wait for huge rally so they can sell their shares at a profit. But what if the huge rally does not come (the number of sellers > the number of buyers)?
Small investors will unload their shares to cut loss/margin call. Other small investors will panic and when all of them sells,massive selling will be induced.
This is how the big funds architect the ups and downs of the market. Small investors have to go back to work,save some money and come back to play again when the market is UP again.   
It’s an ongoing cycle which keep most of us working for the rest of our life.You can’t really go against big funds which have a team of professionals plus big capital.
These big funds don’t have to compete against each other because the number of PIGS to be slaughtered are enough to fill their hunger.They just have to coopoerate with each others to push up the market.It’s not an open/efficient market here in Malaysia when the whole market is monopolize by government controlled vehicles.
Do you think you can beat them in the game of investing?Well,think again.
