HI anon, I would definitely say it's worth investing as early as possible for the long-term to let compounding do its wonders. Granted, when you start off, the dividend you receive might just be a trickle. But as you gain experience and knowledge, and earn more, and invest in more dividend stocks, your dividend would grow over time. The benefit of compounding our money early over the long-term is shown in one of the Dow Theory Letters, entitled Rich Man, Poor Man. Say there are two people, Ah Tan and Ah Lee. Ah Tan starts investing at the age of 19. He invests $2,000 every year from age 19 until 25 and stops thereafter. That means he has put $14,000 into the stock market. On the other hand, Ah Lee starts investing only at the age of 26. From age 26 until 65, he invests $2,000 annually in stocks. By the time he turns 65, he has contributed $80,000 to his portfolio. Assuming both investors can generate 10% yearly on their portfolios, whose portfolio would be larger at age 65? Most would think that Ah Lee would have a bigger portfolio. Yes, Ah Lee indeed has a larger portfolio at $973,704 while Ah Tan’s portfolio would be worth $944,641. However, here’s the fun part. Ah Tan wins overall as he has higher profit of $930,641 versus Ah Lee’s $893,704. Remember that Ah Tan had only put in $14,000 over seven years, while Ah Lee contributed $80,000 over 40 years.

Because many listed stocks in Singapore has corporate governance issues resulting in them having fake reported cash reserves or fake factories. This resulted in investors losing 99% or their entire stake in the listed company This issue has been persistent and especially prevalent which has happened not just in s-chips but even our own local companies To make matters worse, many local companies had poor risk control and aggressive accounting. This resulted in many of them undergoing restructuring which has wiped off many investors

Everyone has different priorities in different stage in life, and that's totally understandable. For me, as simple as it might sound, we always have a choice in what we want to do. It's all about "allocating" the priorities. To answer your question, I choose to read updates from my investing community rather than general market news (for eg). It's about choosing which "makes more sense" to you. It's never easy, and sacrifices have to be made sometimes, but at the end of the day, we all made the best choice we see fit at any point in time :)

From what I gather from the retail investors, most people think REITs is too high, so they go for the Low lying business trust thinking they will eventually go up like the REITs. However the high go higher, Low ones continue to fall lower

Value Investing - Understanding the business fundamentals and estimating the valuations, and determine the right price purchase it Options trading is buying financial instruments to exercise or sell at certain price. It is with the aim of benefiting from the expected price movement of a stock in the short term with no expectations of owning the shares For beginners i will advocate value investing because options trading requires constant monitoring of prices and the volatility in options trading can be great (double digit % movements). The large movement will trigger emotions within the trader and past experiences show beginner traders tend to make mistakes due to clouding of emotions

Hi Bjorn, My previous mistakes which i regretted the most was also over leverage on put options. The ticker is AAOI. The premium is just too juicy. It was like 10% for 2 - 3 days. I leveraged about 10x my cash. What happen is i tot when i sell so far out, definitely will never hit. Who knows the stock price can just tank 10 - 15% everyday. I'm in panicked and couldn't sleep every night. Staring at the share price and praying for the share price to appreciate. On the very last day, i am sitting at 40% lost and i know if i got assigned, i definitely do not have the money to buy that amount of shares. Painful lesson! I just have to close my position and take the lost. This is the lesson that i remember forever. I just have to move on. After that, i tried very hard and getting serious on investing. I learn whatever i can and look for mentor to guide me along. What i am trying to say is, no matter how, life still goes on. Since you buying option, i think the extrinsic value should be not much now due to time decay. What you can do is either cut it and take back whatever you can or leave it tilk the expiry date where 2 things can happen. Your stock goes back up, you lucky, or your stock value goes to 0. Whatever it is, do what you think is right and move on!

It is very commendable to accumulate 60k in savings at such a young age. That's said for beginner, i suggest you take the time to read on investment book before investing. A recommendation will be one up on Wall Street by Peter lynch If you are eager to invest right away, i would suggest investing in the sti etf due to the fact that it is auto diversified across the 30 companies which are of the largest few I'm Singapore and are of in resilient industries
