5 Timeless Strategies for Successful Investor

1. Accept That Uncertainty is the Rule, Not the Exception.

When building long-term wealth, periods of uncertainty are the rule, not the exception. But, despite the uncertainties, it is important to understand that the long-term movement of the stock market is always upwards.


2. Focus on What is Important and Knowable.

Since uncertainty is the rule, not the exception, it is important to focus on what is important and knowable instead of important and unknowable.
Such an investment approach can help uncover investment opportunities during many different market, economic and political conditions.

3. Be Patient

Buy and Hold is the best way to build long-term wealth. Such approach also filters out the noise and allow the power of compounding to help build wealth.

4. Expect Periods of Disappointment

Even the best investor or fund manager in the world will go through periods of disappointing performance. It is normal part of investing cycle. Accepting this fact will reduce the likelihood of engaging in unhealthy investing behaviour of making unnecessary modifications and adjustments to your long-term investment strategy.

5. Historically, Period of Low Returns for Stocks Have Been Followed by Periods of Higher Returns

Therefore invest when prices are low. This requires no further elaboration :-)

Tiger Airways

TOTALLY PANNED OUT AS I PREDICTED in NOV'2015 where I wrote:

"While on one hand, Tiger is still not showing profits, they are definitely narrowing on the losses.....I am confident (as SIA is too) that Tiger will be able to show profit in the near future. So there is no better timing to offer a buyout as now."

Latest profit announcement by Tiger Airways:

SINGAPORE: Budget carrier Tiger Airways on Friday (Jan 22) posted a net profit of S$6.8 million for the three months to Dec 31, 2015, in a sign that business is turning around.
The net profit for the fiscal third quarter was a marked improvement over the S$2.2 million earned a year ago. It also marked a reversal of the S$12.8 million net loss reported for the second quarter ended Sep 30.
