Hi, I’m back with another update of HGS Portfolio Update June 2020 which is the 2nd episode to catch you up to speed to my current portfolio (which you can find my Feb 2021 portfolio HERE). When you look at the current up to date portfolio in Feb 2021, you think is was a smooth ride. But May to June 2020 was challenging in the sense the OVERALL & HGS portfolio went down. Of course at that time , I didn’t know as I was still very focus on HGS portfolio & conducting classes.
But I guess ,when you don’t have a goal, that’s what happen, we hover around & may sometimes keep going round in circles. And honestly, at that point of time, I was just testing out the HGS system
So here is the update:
So, what’s my learning?
Stock investing with “Value Investing” can be boring sometimes. It is pretty much buy & wait. Especially in Malaysia where the market is not as active as in US. But I guess at that point of time, I wasn’t really sure what I was doing & to get a 6% return on PUBLIC BANK was all I was focusing on.
Another learning I had, now that I am looking back, my strategy at that time was, I would invested 100% of my funds into my stock portfolio because I wanted my money to be working hard for me. After speaking to a close friend later on (who manages his own million ringgit portfolio), he shared with me that he would invest 50% out of 100 % of his funds into stocks & keep 50%, should market drop to average out the cost. Will let you know when I started practicing this strategy in my next episode.
So, do share with me so far, what did you learn from my mistakes OR the things which I did right?
