KOUFU IPO: WILL TOM K SUBSCRIBE?

KOUFU IPO is currently ongoing as you investors may know. The listing of a Kopitiam-related stock is now new to Singapore since the listing of another Kopitiam-related stock in Kimly. So will I subscribe to Koufu IPO?

First, a check on the statistics. Of the IPO, only 6.3 million shares are offered for the public as compared to 90.7 million placement shares. Also, after the listing, Pang Lim, the founder of Koufu, Pang Lim and his wife would continue to be the major substantial shareshilders with 45.8 million shares. Read more »

SINGAPORE STOCKS DOWN BY 0.85% TODAY! WHAT SHOULD INVESTORS DO NOW?

Dear readers, Singapore stocks were down by around 0.80% today and with today’s showing of Singapore stocks, our local bourse actually gave back the gains the markets have chalked up in the recent trading sessions.

This has all along been my position for the STI thus far. Any dollar cost averaging to be done should be done at where the STI becomes attractive once again and a below 3,000 mark could be the start for some investors to dollar-cost-average-buy the Singapore stocks though probably Singapore stocks are poised to head south even more in my opinion.
