For stocks, you might want to try out stocks cafe. This platform will calculate all your stock returns automatically for you. For SSB, you just have to take the coupon paid to you as your investment return. Asset allocation depends on individual risk appetite. For young people below age 40, I would think a portfolio of mainly stocks is good for long term investments. For those above 50, it would be better to invest in safer assets such as bonds or stable dividend stocks.

Yes I would want to invest most of my savings as much as possible. I will also have a war chest to deploy if market goes down. My strategy is to buy when companies are selling at good value or undervalued and sell when companies are overvalued.

For now, I do not count CPF as part of my $1M savings. There are benefits of having more money in CPF as we will get 4%-5% interest. I may top up my CPF in the future if I have more extra cash. For now, CPF is not part my financial plan.

I do understand how hard it is to convince your siblings to start planning their finances when you see them still spending most of their money. Maybe you can try to slowly tell them the benefits of planning early especially the power of compounding. The earlier we start to save and invest, the better it'll be for our future. Another thing you can do is recommend them some books to read which will inspire them. Some good book are rich dad poor dad and the richest man in Babylon. These 2 books illustrate financial planning with thought provoking examples and stories.

Actually its not about those who use who are viewed as cheapskate but its your date who might feel she is less valued by you that not worth for you to spend your money on.

Hmm, can't really answer for you. You might want to check if you moved overseas, can you still buy or sell SG stocks from your brokerage? If yes, then its not too big of a problem.

I believe you will have some extra cash even after topping up your CPF. You should explore investing in stocks or Singapore savings bond. Its better than leaving your money in the bank account.

I will always start by reading its annual report to read what the management says and then scan through their financial statements to check on its profitability, debt profile and also its cash flow. I will dissect a company's business and go into detail on all its businesses and its contribution to the group. Then I will also look at its risk against the current economic situation. An example is the analysis I did on Singtel here: http://sgyounginvestment.blogspot.com/2018/07/looking-more-closely-at-singtel-is.html

I did not spend any money for grad trip but looking back, I may want to do it. Now when I have more money, I want to travel more and the experience on travelling is always worth the money in my opinion
