What is the best strategy now? - Page 2 Invest10


First of all I must thank to CSE a lot because I made over 200% gain over the last 2 years. I have been trading over 6 years in total and seen many downs and ups of the market. 95%  of my portfolio is of fundamental shares and undervalued shares.

At this present condition, I have been losing almost Rs. 200,000/= everyday. I am planning to quit temporarily and come back with 50% of portfolio when things are ok. My portfolio value is 8 digit figure and if I dispose it and put it in a fixed deposit I will earn more than my present salary.

My options are:
1) Dispose entire portfolio and deposit it in fixed deposit account
2) Dispose 50% and reinvest it in plantations (coconut)
3) Quit the job and spend more time on trading
4) Buy an appartment and rent
5) Do nothing and wait till the market recover

Also, I would like to know how many of you are doing trading as a job (full-time). I have more than 25 years to retire but I feel if I spend more time in the market I always can make more gains and reduce loses. I'm also fed up with my present job.

Friends, please advice me.

Many expected an upward trend after 12 noon.

Post Fri Jun 24, 2011 12:49 pm by Aamiable

Best strategy is not to start fighting among members,.. just allow stock market to see an overall recovery.... Ninety nine percent of the shares were down... Let all stocks recover up to previous levels.... Keep all kinds of mew investments interested and attracted to CSE.

Now declining phase is almost over there was a problem of lack of funds, that phase seem to be over. Now onwards I keep an eye on a different set of shares where there are enough funds.

In the next half of the year, I look for stocks where there is institutional baying, foreign partipation is active technically proven to be sound .

From this base level real and sustainable growth is expected.

look for shares which are fundamentally strong and undervalued with this strategy you will not go wrong

Post Tue Jul 12, 2011 1:31 pm by maalinda

If you have been in the market 6 years im sure you have seen worst before. So why panic ? If i were you what i ll do in this situation DO NOTHING AND WAIT TILL IT RECOVER.

same time buy small quantities at low prices and sell with small profit if can to book some profit That is what im doing from last 2 months.

QUIT JOB is stupidest thing to now. atleast you have an income cuz of that.

Good luck. We all have red PF... wait this is not forever... it will recover sooner or later.

Protect your gains sell and buy when market drops another 500 or 600 points, probably will happen between now and September

Post Thu Jul 14, 2011 2:25 pm by Investor99

First thing we got to understand is that this is not a market crash but an induced market correction. In my opinion this is a good time to buy shares if there is extra cash. There are a few fundamentally strong undervalued shares in certain growth industries in the market that would yield above average returns in the long term (2 to 3 years).

@dineshfernando: You are in an enviable financial situation and can now afford to start engaging in 'the pursuit of happiness'. What else are we living for?
My advice would be:
1. If your portfolio consists of fundamental & undervalued shares, don't sell them all... but try to restrict your equity percentage to 100 minus your age.
2. Fixed Deposits and renting out an apartment are very good ideas that will assure you a fixed income while preserving the principal. (I don't know much about coconut plantations, though.)
3. If you are fed up with your present job, quit and spend more time on what you like doing, i.e. trading! But keep your professional skills up to date, keep the saw sharp; If you've read 'The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari', you'd understand what I'm trying to say...
All the Best! Smile

@Antonym, can you elaborate more in detail? Why we should restrict our equity percentage based on our age?

Antonym

Post Thu Jul 14, 2011 4:45 pm by Antonym

'100 minus your age' is an equity allocation rule of thumb (that I try to follow). The rationale is that equity shares, in general, give the best returns in the long term. However, good shares sometimes take many years to yield their full benefit - through capital appreciation and dividend yields.

At a younger age, more time is available; therefore a higher equity percentage is justified. This link explains it better...

Again enter the market if you wish. I believe 2012 to be exciting year.

This is my personal view please obtain professional advice before making your investment decisions.

Market turmoil is over, many expect a green smooth running stock market tomorrow onwards which would properly reflect corporate earnings. I personally prefer to enter CSE with few shares which are not dependent on credit. Hope to enter step by step little at a time with a diversified PF. Others may be having different ideas, I focus on medium term investments. Meanwhile I respect all kinds of different strategies. Each investor selects best strategy suitable for them according to his or her ability to invest and hold on to thier shares.

I have nothing to say other than repeat what I said many times before. If you had correctly followed the market this year you would have been able to double your wealth in 2011; in terms of the number of shares you had in the same companies. Still I have one thing to say, you should be entering into oversold market and not wise verse.
