Is there any of you who have experience in long term investments?

Guys if so please share your experiences. We have heard many success stories, is there some one who had been affected by long term investment?

FYI I'm not a trader! But an investor!

These days I hardly have ever looked at CSE at all! In-fact have not done a trade in CSE from over 3 weeks!
As for the questions about my trading past I started investing last year September and 5 years ago was not even in Sri Lanka! But that does not mean I have not done my studies about the past! When I mean short term I don't mean day or 2 but most probably from 1week to about 3 months!

Can you people explain a huge long term gain that does not include the years from 2009 ?? As most people here say they have been on the market for ages so show us great examples? I can bet I can show some companies with few short term ( 1-2 months ) investments that gave way more return!


Also about the examples you said! Those examples sucked hardcore man! Did you check what would have been the fix deposit or treasury bill gain if some one put the money in them during those times? I can remember that those days the Fix deposit and treasury bill gains were over 20% per year! Do the calculations and see what is better!

Also about your JKH counter ! You had that investment since 2001 right? So up to 2009 before the war ended how much was your capital gain? You said you studied it and it had 8 years to gain? Did you gain more than a fixed deposit or buying a pies of land ?

The original posters title says "Who have experience in long term investments?" so we were replying our experiences to it.

If that strategy does not work for one, they can opt for another. No complain there.

But just like short term players, day traders are important to stock markets , long term players are also equally important to maintain stability.

Best that we follow our own strategies which work for us and respect others strategies as well.

I failed to mention was that I sold PART of it in 2005 0r 2006 for a need with over 3 times profit at least( from memroy). It would have certainly bettered an FD even with 20% per annum compounded. That should itself answer your query I believe.

Btw, when I said long term, I never meant you never sell or hold for ever as it would be silly.

As I Can see from
http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/quote?ticker=JKH:SL
JKH started year 2007 at Rs 100 and went as low about Rs 35 in year 2009! That is including all the splits and bonus issues included! How ever I can't find older data so I will take your word for it! But still I fail to see how you could have sold with 3x gain looking at those charts!

Before 2009.. Touchwood comes to my mind. Twisted Evil It gave good return in short period of time way back in 2006/2007. Yes I agreed overall it was difficult.

Since 2011 its all junks gave good results. Thats the reason why I sold DIMO.
Sold DIMO and bought WAPO.. It was successful though.

Whoever bought these junkies low are winners in 2011. Slowly things are changing.

"How ever I can't find older data so I will take your word for it!"
" But still I fail to see how you could have sold with 3x gain looking at those charts!"

If you are taking my word then second sentence is a paradox.
Just kidding.


Anyway , don;t rely on bloomsberg for prices. They are not accurate for older values as it accounts recent splits etc to show current price.


On CDAX price of JKH at 02-1-07 was Rs 195. Latter 2006 it should also have been 190s .


(BTW JKH never went to Rs 30s in the recent past. Cheapest I saw was in the rs 50s-60s I think in early 2009.)

My brother has purchased ASHO shares at Rs 60 in 2004. But he has bought only 400 shares and he is still holding it. Look at the share price today. It's trading between Rs 3000/- and Rs 3500/-. Excellent return in 7 to 8 years.

Here's something for the children who dont understand the value of long term investments..

I've taken these from Mr. Dilruk's (Richard Peiris Securities) presentations on "Mastering the skills of trading"...
So my utmost gratitude goes to him and the broker company for their hard work..

My intention of publishing some of the pages here are only for members knowledge and not to promote any broker company..

Loosing commonwealth games may negatively affect JKH and this effect may be strong enough to drag the market to red territory. Just my idea. Don't make your investment decision on this.

This is very illustrative, especially those brats who think "Long term investments are mistakes of Short term investments". Those who can't think any thing beyond plantations, we can't help Twisted Evil

Not only above individual experience, If we look at how some institutions gain massively from investment in equity, we'll be able to see the clear story

Few examples-
-RICH invested in AAIC at Rs.20 and recently disposed at 120 within 6-7 years.
-KDDP invested in REEF when it was 1-2 rupees(before consolidation, 1/- share) and we know at which price he sold.
-Lanka-Bangla investment by SAMP- Their initial investment was only 60 million rupees, and we saw it consistently strengthened SAMP balance sheet in past couple of years and will be in future.

But some of us waiting till a so called "Rally" make them millionaires in overnight

Values I posted are accounting for splits I mentioned and as it should be! That gives a right picture of price ! IF not some one might say I bought Rich at rs 120 and now its rs 10 I lost billions!

Also as I have said all of you again forgot the 2009 RULE! Show me gains of long term investments before 2009! I will show you an example of investing outside stock exchange!
My father bought a land in kandy in year 1999 for 120000! by year 2009 the estimated and people calling and asking price of land was Rs 2000000!(Now about 1800000) That was a 16x gain in 10 years!
IF you put the cash at a treasury bill in year 1990 and took it around 2000 you would have gained 6x!!

Those are really bad examples m8 and are great for the point I'm making! For example If you bought reef before 1st mandatory offer hold 1 month sold then again buy before 2nd mandatory offer and sold you could have earned more than 2x the amount of holding it for over 5 years period!

My view is that, short term will be a winning technique for some people and long term will be a winning technique for some others.

When we go long term the chances of getting a better profit than FD increases. Winning percentage would be high.

But in short term similar or better profit can be gained if we sell and buy at the right time. But chances of archiving this is far less.

Investing on land or property may not work all the time. It depends on the time we invest ( like stock market). I purchased a land in late 2008 in Colombo suburbs for 3.2 million. But still my land value is stagnated at the same value. If I invest that amount in Stock market at that time, I would have earned many times for my investment. However, I didn't mean that investing on land or property is a bad option.

And as a short term investor we would need to spend a lot of time with share market, but in long term investment we can afford to spend little more less time with share market, thus we will be able concentrate on other aspects of our careers.

I would prefer long term investment.

If you were an investor prior to 2009
HNB 2005 you could buy the share for Rs 52.50
HNB 2007 you could sell the same share for Rs 210.00

During this time there was a right issue of 2:5 for Rs 55 as well.

Its over X3 times gain in less than two years time.
If you need more........ just check DIST as well.

If you were a trader prior to 2009
Those days if you had played with touchwood correctly you could have been always end up in good results in short periods.

Didn't you see any of the above posts before crying like a new born child.. Laughing Hope you wont ask silly questions again again and again..!
