Hi there, Just to add on to Leonard's point, I feel that as someone who is new to investing, it is not advisable to spend on subscriptions to these sources - primarily because there is so many fundamentals about investing that one needs to learn before actually learning what stocks to buy (based on these subscriptions' recommendations). Moreover, there are a multitude of free articles (not everything) online like SeekingAlpha, MarketWatch, Zacks that you can exploit instead of commiting to paying for one. Other ways in which you can supplement your knowledge would be to read news sources such as MorningStar, CNBC and even listen to Bloomberg Radio.

Do we need to have stronger institutions to get ahead of the next Asian financial crisis?

Yes. With interest rate so low, it's going to be very tough to use monetary policies to combat any recession. In fact, the fed reserve interest rate has already been negative in real terms (the current rate is below the inflation rate, and not too many people talk abt this) So in a real crisis, I have absolutely no idea who is going to save the day. We need strong institutes to prepare for the homeless, the soup kitchen, the employment of the last resort.... and probably riot police and army if there are protests and unrests. PS: I am painting a rather gloomy picture, hopefully, none of this would happen in the next decade or so. At least not in Singapore.

Apple vs Huawei vs Samsung vs Google. 4 New phones came out this year, what should I upgrade my iPhone 6s into? Should I just continue using this iPhone since I just changed the battery this year?

Yes, if you don't need it as a status symbol think only of it's functionality. if the battery works and the device fulfils it's purpose, stay with it. spend the money better by inviting your girlfriend to diner(s).

What's next for Brexit after Theresa May resigns?
No one knows. Just like no one will be able to predict what Donald Trump will do next. Best thing is to control what we can control. Diversify your investments. Buy companies that fair price. Buy companies with good fundamentals.

In a sense, yes. US growth rate for was 2.9% in 2018, just shy of Trump’s goal of 3.0%. There was strong consumer and business spending despite multiple headwinds. However the fiscal stimulus is thought to have peaked and the effects will not continue onwards to first quarter 2019.

How does the economy works in Singapore? The news reported that Singapore economy is growing, but isn't STI dropping? So does STI reflects Singapore economy?

On the contrary, Singapore economy is slowing down further. The Straits Times reported on 21 May that Singapore's 2019 growth forecast downgraded to 1.5% to 2.5% after economy slows to 1.2% in Q1. https://www.straitstimes.com/business/economy/singapores-2019-growth-forecast-downgraded-to-15-25-after-economy-slows-to-12-in-q1
