The Weekly Nibble: Dividends For You?
Here are some of the more interesting articles that have appeared in the Motley Fool Singapore’s website over the past week. Let’s take a look at them.
Singaporeans love dividends as it can be a secondary source of income. If you want to find out how a supermarket chain, the world’s second largest land transport company, an airline services provider and more, can give you income, look no further.
There are many prominent investors out there and one of them is the late Walter Schloss. In this article, my Foolish colleague Chong Ser Jing shares 16 rules from Schloss’ short memo titled Factors needed to make money in the stock market. My favourite rule is the seventh: “Have the courage of your convictions once you have made a decision.” This is especially true when buying beaten-down stocks that are fundamentally sound but are seeing short-term weaknesses.
Some of the stock market’s best long-term winners can perform poorly in the short-term. Using examples of a US-listed energy drinks maker and a Singapore-listed private healthcare services provider, Ser Jing showed how big long-term winners can also lose 50% over the short-term.
