How do you compute for your TP ?
Hi Ms Fehl,
Thank you for sharing this details. This is a big help for me since I’m only a beginner.
I would like to ask if the BBP and TP of the listed blue chips stocks above are still applicable up to now? Especially the AP, SMPH, ALI, BDO, JFC as I’m planning to buy stocks from them for my long term plan.
Thank you in advance 🙂
Hello Ms Fehl,
Bago po ako dito and curious po ako about sa investment I’ve heard of my friend about trading using etoro.What’s the difference between trading and investing.If i want to invest my money which company is best for finacial investment and is good for short term and long twrm investment.Kindly teach me how to invest po.how i will strart.I’m currently living abroad and i want to invest some of my savings for good investment.thank you po.
Hi Vergie, thanks for visiting. Trading is more of short term while investing is more of long term. I made a simple tutorial for beginners here. You may start here: https://dailypik.com/before-investing-stock-market/
Is it advisable to buy stocks now? or wait for another 2weeks?
It’s impossible to tell if the market will still dip even further. But the lock-down still continues here in the Philippines and some countries. We better buy on batches – like this week and the next following weeks than missing the opportunity. Either way, good named stocks for long term can reward you soon if you did not miss buying on the dip 🙂
Hi Maam Fehl, good day! May I ask you about East West stock Buy Below Price and Target Price? I’m asking since I invested on this stock heheh. Thanks for reading 😁
Hi, although banks are vulnerable during this pandemic, my personal TP for East West Bank is 10.50, BBP is 9.13
Maam Fehl please let me ask you if this prices you give me will last for how long? It will help me in a big way. Maraming salamat for entertaining me 😄
Hi again Maam Fehl. Good day! Matanong ko lang po kung ano po ang BBP at TP ng DITO? Maraming salamat po keep on inspiring!
Hi 🙂 DITO is overpriced in my opinion. Can’t give a target price for now as I’m waiting a reversal. Alert if it reached its MA100 3.44
Is it a good time to buy now?
Yes, market crash doesn’t happen too often
Hi Ma’am Fehl, do you recommend to continue buying stocks or should I withdraw them? My losses are at 43.48% during this COVID 19 crisis. Thank you for the reply
Hi Cor 🙂 Markets crashed globally due to the corona virus. What you see on your account are un-realized losses, meaning you will lose only if you sell or close them. If you are investing high quality stocks for long term, do not sell on panic. Markets will eventually recover and so will excellent companies. Always remember, don’t trade with your emotion. Stick to your strategy and evaluate your risk tolerance. Cheers!
Hi Ms Fehl! Merry Christmas!
Tanong ko lang po ung view nyo regarding PLDT.
Is it ok to buy po ba?
Malaki na po kasi lugi ko dun, iniisip ko kung mag average down pa po ba ko.
As of Dec. 26:
Ave price: 1252.9396
Market price: 999.500
Thank you po in advance.
Same situation like urs… Hehehe… But i keep on holding.. I stopped buying muna. Instead, i focused my buying on the big 5 stocks. 😊 better hold na lng muna yan.
Hello, Ms. FehI.
I have MPI and AC in my portfolio.
Is it still worth it to keep them? Do you think they can recover soon from the issue on water concession agreements?
Sell them at a loss, or hold and wait?
Makaka recover pa yan… Tiis tiis lng muna… Sinabayan pa kasi ni Corona virus eh. Patience lang.
How about PCOR?
Can I invest for long term?
PCOR is blue chip too right?
Hi Ms. Fehl, whreas the MSCI Phil Index consists of only 23 blue chip stocks. Do you happen to know the 23 components? Please share.
Will share about in depth review about it soon 🙂
Great! Pls dont delay 😃
Hi Ms. Fehl. Is it okay to invest in FGEN for long term? Thank you!
Hi Ms. Fhel! May I ask your estimated revenue in % is for what duration please? thanks
sa JFC po parang masyado mababa BBP ninyo, nasa 270-300 na ang JFC, babagsak pa po kaya presyo nun?
Hi Ms. Fehl,
What is your stand on URC given that the Japs already left the JV and that they take full control on Calbee? Do you still recommend buying this stock or should i start selling my shares? bought mine @178ish. 🙁
also I want to buy shares/stocks that is good in long term investment. What is the best you can advise since it’s 2018?
Hi, just wanted to ask po which stocks are good for investment long term (5-10 years). Nacurious kasi ako when you said some are only good for trading but not for investing. Di lang dahil blue chip stock sya, like Globe. Appreciate your response po..
For investing 10 years or more my top personal picks are ALI and SMPH because of recurring revenue. BDO for banking and JFC for food sector
thank you po. meron pa po bang iba? wanted to diversify my portfolio so im planning around 10 stocks? i have na po those 4 (thankfully). I also have bpi, urc, mtbc, mpi. Before i continue investing in them or should i choose another. Kaka-start ko plang din kasi, just to make sure im right on track. Appreciate your help po 🙂
Mix some mutual funds on equities or index fund on your portfolio if you want
Miss Fehl alin ba sa mga online broker ang hassle free to open a trading account?
So not all blue chips companies are not recommended for long term investment?
how about today, those are still your personal picks?
Yes, those companies are strong and stable and will recover soon
Good pm! Ok po ba bumili ng tel ngayon? Ang laki po kasi ng binababa nya? Kahapon po nag close at 1251, then ngayon po biglang 1210 n lng. Thanks po,
Depends if you’re into active trading, then that’s a yes
Hi Team, I am new here to start with Share Market. May I know which are the good share for short term or intraday ?
Ano po ung interest rate ng mga blue chips yearly?

Hi ! Goodafternoon. Sorry newbie lang about stocks. Paano po ba bumili ng stocks ?
Hi! Welcome to the world of stocks 🙂 What trading platform are you using?
hello 🙂 not familiar in trading platform . I don’t have any idea about trading but Im very interested to learn about it. and hoping soon can start trading / investing . Thank you !
Hi, Jenny. Trading platforms are BDO Nomura (for people with BDO account), FirstMetroSec (for Metrobank), BPI Trade (BPI) and COL Financial. If you are using BDO, follow the guide here: https://dailypik.com/how-to-buy-stocks-online-using-bdo-nomura/
Is it still advisable to buy MPI?
same question for me Ms. Fehl. What bout MPI? is it a good buy for long term?
Yes, MPI is also good for long term. MPI gets most of its income from infrastructure businesses
hi miss fehl! just a question po. globe is experiencing downward trend. is it wise to purchase globe stocks while its down considering a chunk of their expenses is for expansion and improvement?
If you’re trading, yes but NOT if you’re investing. Tech companies like Globe will always have higher risk coz technology evolves faster, very unpredictable and competition is high
I would like to confirm that Blue Chip Chart is still updated? I just opened my account with COL but hesitant to buy anything since I wanted to buy JFC stocks but the current price both buying and selling is way above the BBP and and TP recommendations.
Hello! I’d like to ask your opinion about “sell in May and go away”. Im planning to open an account in COL Financial and would probably buy stocks mid April to early May. Would you advice to not buy stocks yet? Ive read some posts saying theyre currently still at a loss becausw of buyig stocks during May.
Hi, Bea 🙂 It’s actually good to buy right now that market is down
Hi Mam Fehl, would SMPH be a sound investment for cost averaging, or should i wait for it to go lower. thanks for your time mam fehl.
With Peso Cost averaging, you buy each month and let it average out on its own. If the price goes down, you can get more shares, if the price goes up, then your portfolio value goes up. Either way, in the long term you win.
Hi to all. need opinion: am i to sell my EW? it has grown +72.56% from 3 years ago. this year, it is not listed in ‘blue chips’. TP is 36, market price now is 30.10. should i continue to keep it?
I think it’s good to sell while you have 72.56% gain already. 🙂
Resistance at 31.08 sell na EW. Hehehe.
Actually I forgot to sell by EW… then stocks were down last 2 weeks ago… EW almost negative. but to my surprise, EW just went up right now and I received a “Notice of Stock Divident”… surprised EW gave dividend to 50% of my stocks. and now just today… +52.92% na ulit sya with my +50% stock dividend. wow.
Hi. Ms. Fehl, good day. Are you recommending a daily trading?
I don’t recommend day trading because it involves a lot of technical stuff and time. I’m always into passive investing coz it involves less effort and time. I want to spend more of my time to my family, passion and other stuff 🙂
Hi Miss Fehl!
Iaupdate nyo po ba itong list? Im a newbie sa Ph Stock Market and I’m really learning a lot sa mga article nyo, so bago pa ko kumita ng malaki magpapasalamat na po ako agad sa inyo! God bless!
Yes, it’s updated 🙂 Thank you so much
Hello po. May i ask if you have forecast for chelsea and Holcim . I have negative on both of these stocks .
hi po pwede po bang mag ask what reason bakit bumababa ang price stock at minsan naman ay tumataas
Because companies perform good or bad, the economy and the world market also have factors
tanong lang po, yun po bang buy below price ay yung price ng isang unit? medyo nalilito po kasi ako kung anong titingnan na price or kung alin sa mga column na yun ang price. thanks po sa sasagot.
Hi Ms Fehl,
I have idea na when it comes to investing in the stock market since I joined Truly Rich Club last 2015 (and stopped my subscription after 6mos.) I already gained and lost in the stock market. The thing is recently I wasn’t able to monitor my portfolio and lost my stocks in PLDT (bought it for P2,136 and now it’s only P1,480.00) More than 30% loss wheww. Same thing with Double Dragon and MAX’s with 29% and 18% losses. I prefer to be a long term investor, but I just can’t apply peso cost averaging now, because my gut feel says no. But I can’t sell them either… Any advise and strategy would be greatly appreciated. And I now vow to monitor my portfolio everyday. Thank God I found your site.
Hello, Ms. Fehl,
Just want to ask.. According to the record, when is the best quarter of the year to invest lump sum in the stock market? Thanks in advance and God bless. 🙂
It may not always be accurate but prices are low before and after election and after calamities. Sometimes, before and after Christmas or New Year.
Thanks a lot. 🙂
Gud day Ms. Fehl
Just want to ask.. Okie po ba na pang long term ang MPI?
looking po kasi for mura lng but good stocks so I can able to buy monthly.
Many thanks & God Bless
Hello Jean 🙂 Yes, MPI is also good for long term
Thank you so much Ms. Fehl…
Happy new year 🙂
Hi Ms. Fehl,
Meralco is not part of your list, do you think it is good to hold some shares given it’s historical dividend payout? Thank you
I have 50k in my bank, and its really hard time to increase overtime…
And if im going to take risk to convert to stocks targeting for 6 months term, Do you have at least 1 stocks to recommend?
Hope to hear you soon.
If I recommend something, it won’t likely to grow much in 6 months honestly 🙂
yes. too short a time. my portfolio got +28% in 2 years.
Hi Ms. Fehl, do you still recommend buying URC with their continuing disappointing performance? Bought my shares at 175ish…:( Im confuse whether to sell my stocks or to buy some more…please help.
Yes, I still recommend it. Last time I checked, it’s still among our B5 here 🙂 Diversify to other blue chip stocks not just URC. I’m still holding my shares even though I have loss for URC but I don’t care. Tomorrow is another day 🙂 God bless!
Hi Fehl, AC seems to be really going up. What would you recommend? Buy more?
Ma’m good day po ano po ibig sabihin nito i recently put my edc to tender offer. Then i received this message. SCALED BACK SHARES AS A RESULT OF TENDER OFFER
can i ask you regarding MEG i have 43% up now, do u think i should sell it now or wait for sometime? thank you 🙂
JFC now is higher than the target price at 245. But I bought it higher than the BBP. Currently, I have 17.54% gains. Should I sell already or wait it out?
Hi, Veronica 🙂 Our strategy for JFC here is PCA (buy monthly for long term regardless of BBP.) It’s a very good blue chip. You can wait for more time to gain some more 🙂
Miss Fehl, wala po bang update sa buy below price and target price ng mga blue chips you recommend?
Please review BBP P25 and TP P30 for SMPH if correct as of August 30, 2017.
What is the 1st step to invest in stock market?
Have these first:
basic knowledge about investing
know your risk tolerance
know your goal (plan, objective)
decide about your strategy
Check out our guides here to learn all those things. Then you’re good to invest:)
Hi Ms. Fehl, i read your blog.. but still not into trading. But i might soon. thinking to join the COL, but i just want to know lang po.. how much they charge you per trade? Meron po bang minimum or maximum shares when you buy a certain stocks? And lastly po, if I join, do i have a free will na pumili ng stocks na gusto kung bilhin? Salamat ng marami.
Currently COL charges ‘around’ 0.3% of the transaction when buying stocks. As for selling, it’s ‘around’ 0.8%. But take note that minimum commission is P20 (that’s why I put around in quotations). So far my highest transaction fee is P33 for over P11k trade. Unless you trade a lot and big, then charges will pile up.
COL will automatically calculate the gain/loss when you sell your stocks with buying and selling fees already being considered.
Thank you for the info Rickz32. ????????????
hi po ms fehl.
ok po kya yung mga stock na binili ko sa MBT, JFC, MPI, ICT, CHP at CEB?Im into long term investment and im still planning ti buy EDC, FGen or
RLC, ok po ba yun e dagdag sa portfolio ko?
Hi Fehl 🙂 Newbie here 🙂 I want blue chip stocks only for both flipping and long term. I bought MPI and ALI which are both in the list of undervalued stocks. When the time comes that the stocks hit its TP, would it be fine to sell 50% of my stocks for flipping then continue to hold the other 50% for long term? Then continously buy every month? What do you think? Thanks 🙂
Hi good day,
I am thinking if I could do multiple times to buy and sell stocks in a day for how much is the minimum amount allowable from the best broker in the nation with their fast, accurate and reliable platforms? Because I cannot find any day trading rules and regulation online just their brand name.
Please help me.
hi fhel, can u suggest stocks that are great for flipping? may pang longterm na po kasi ako using pca..thanks po
fehl salamat po s mga stockupdate
marami rin ako natotonan,,have a nice day fehl.
Hi Fehl good day sau ask ko lng ilang share of stock b mabibili ng 5k kng puro blue chips ang target ko.
sana mag reply po kau, kasi us of now this is always question in my mind, newbies po ako. thank you,
Capital / Stock Price = Number of Shares
5000(Capital) / 25(SMPH Price) = 200 Shares
Salamat po ng marami, it’s very clear now ! malinaw n malinaw.
Pero di po ba merong minimum number of shares dapat ang bilihan?
Hi Fehl! I’m a newbie investor and just waiting for my trade account in BPI to be approved. So I’m doing some research now. Any recommendations on what stocks should I purchase first? I’m planning to use the flipping strategy. How about if I use long term strategy? Thanks! Your reply will be much appreciated 🙂
Hi, Z! I suggest you prioritize your long term stocks first then if you have any more budget or opportunity, add a stock to flip. Cheers and happy investing!
Hi Fehl, gusto ko po mag invest sa MPI at BDO or JFC. kaso po hindi ko po alam kung paano magsimula. Ma’am gustong- gusto ko po talaga kasi nalilito po ako at hindi ko po alam kung saan lalapit. please give me some advice and pointers please..
Start opening an account, Elizardo. You need a trading platform to buy a stock. If you have a BDO account, you may open Nomura. You can also search BPI & Metrobank’s platform.
Before buying those stocks, you need to consider the timing. I suggest to allocate your money to MPI, instead of BDO & JFC. Wait for the downfall of those blue-chips.
what is MPI po?
MPI is Metro Pacific Investments, Corp.
May dividend po ba MPI? Magkano and when? Thanks mam
Hi me and my husband want to invest in infra like MPI. Mam do you think it’s a good choice for long term? I saw you mention ALI and BDO is best for 5 years and up but how about MPI and EDC. Thanks in advance
Hi Miss Fehl,
Any update to the BBP for SMPH? Thanks
Hi ms fhel im newbie and nag open po aq sa philequity kamakaylan lang…and na approve na ang application ko…ngaun naman ay mag oopen din po aq ng COL account for individual and for my two kids in ITF…ok lang po ba yun???
Hi, you can also buy shares of Philequity. available din ang Mutual Funds sa COL 🙂
Yes po tnx yan nlng po bibilhin ko pra sa mga anak ko…sa fund nila…and ms fhel sa starter po ba isang stock lang ang mabibili??
Kahit ilan po na stock sa starter pwede.
Hi Miss Fehl,
Since BPI is facing now some serious problem due to system glitch in some of their costumer’s bank account does that mean that it will affect its price in stock market? right now it is up by 1.23%.
I think it won’t affect a significant decline. BPI is still an established bank with smart management. Every company meets unexpected challenge once in a while. The system glitch will be a lesson learned. I’m sure BPI is into executing bigger solutions to avoid another one from happening again.
Hi Fehl, newbie here. Just a question, how about po yung AGI (Alliance Global Group) na stock? Any comments po or inputs will be appreciated. Salamat!
Hi, Je. Nasa list of PSEI stocks sya as of now. We did not include it on the Best Blue Chips list as we filtered the best ones as mentioned in the article above. Cheers!
Hi Ms Fehl. Newbie ako. Ask ko lang if updated ba mga figures above BBP & TP ng lahat ng stocks? Everyday ba updating mo? Thanks!
Hello Lyn 🙂 Yes, we update them every trading day 🙂
I’m not sure if the BBP and TP for JFC is updated? It has already been 3 years since they hit 173. Also, 208 as TP is a bit too low given that the price range per stock recently has been playing around 200-250. Waiting for it to go down to 173 with only 208 as TP might not be reasonable anymore. What do you think?
Or is it because the JFC stock price would not go back to at least 230 anymore anytime soon? Will it remain low?
Yes, it’s updated. Fair value of JFC is still 208.
I appreciate your response, thank you. Just another question, how come under the Big 5 category, it says there that JFC is still good to ‘buy’ if the current price is 201.4 and the BBP above is 173? Thanks again.
Hi, Beverly. It’s because the strategy for Big 5 stocks does not use BBP 🙂
Thank you, Fehl!
Hi Ms. Fehl,
I am always visiting your site and I am so thankful that you are providing us helpful information with regards to investing. I’ve noticed that EDC has been removed from the list of Blue Chips Stock with great fundamentals. I really appreciate sharing your thoughts on this…thanks in advance.
Hi Cyril 🙂 How are ya? Thanks for visiting. EDC is still here (list of best blue chip stocks) as of May 22, 2017.
Hello Ms . Fehl,
I planning to invest in stocks, where should I invest first ? in Blue chips the top 5 ? or in Mutual fund ? Which one ?
Im plan is to PCA and hold it for 5 years .
Assuming you have no stocks and Mutual Fund yet, I recommend starting with an Equity Fund on Mutual Fund. Just a reminder though that equity funds are the riskiest funds on Mutual Funds.
what equity fund or mutual funds are you referring to? I am newbie and i would appreciate your guidance. Is this an equity fund listed in stock market or equity fund companies with monthly premiums like Axa,sunlife etc? thank you in advance.
Hi good to know that youve created this kind of blog. very helpful. thanks s free guide.
Hi Ms. Fehl,
I am new in stock investing and I am very thankful that I found your website. It is very useful and good way to guide newbies like me. I would like to ask if it is good to have EDC as long term investment say at least 5 years? Thank you very much!
Hi Ms. Fehl , ask q lang magpapatuloy ang pagbaba ng share ng NIKL?
Ms Fehl, hindi ba magandang i long term ang TUGS? Since nagiisa lang syang company in its industry
Hi ano pede niyo po issugest pag maginvest sa stock for 5yrs lang .
ALI and BDO are great choices from my personal choice for 5 years or up and a great Mutual Fund like Philequity
How to apply in Philequity po?
Hi, if you are using COL Financial as your online broker platform, you can buy shares of Philequity already through the Mutual Funds.
You can check out our review of Philequity here: http://dailypik.com/philequity-fund-review-mutual-fund-tips-earnings/
Hi Ms Fehl! I’m just a newbie in stocks. I bought 30 shares of BDO today for P118.9. It was executed at that price. I am just confused as to why my average price is 119.6647 when I bought it in one order (day order). This is the first time I invested in BDO. Please take time to answer my question. More power to your blog. It helps a lot of people like me.
you add the commission and all other fees to the total purchase price then divide the amount by the number of shares that you bought… in your case : ( 30*118.9+total fees)/30… that’s your average price
you mentioned PCA method for Blue chip companies, what PCA stands for?
Pesp – Cost Averaging
Hi Ms Fehl,
May updated target price ka ba kay SMPH? 30 na kasi sya ngayon. 🙂 Any thoughts as to continue waiting or to sell?
Prices above are updated 🙂 If you are flipping SMPH, it’s not so good to do that right now as it already met the TP. Better use PCA method for SMPH is you want to invest it
30 na ang SMPH
Hi po, mam/sir ask ko lang po pano po ba mag invest? Kahit po 3k monthly baka sakaling dito ako umunlad kahit papano. Pano po ba ang start dito at ano ano po ang mga kailangan docs at requirement?
hi ms. fehl
what can u say about doing a technical analysis like using macd, cci etc.. ?
Should I continue buying BPI or BDO even if the price is above the BBP?
Hi, blue chip stocks are suitable for PCA method. You invest no matter what the price is (above or below BBP). The BBP is just a guide to show you, you will generate more income if you buy below that point. In the list of stocks above, they are blue chip companies and we recommend investing them for long term following PCA method
GLO should be included here. EDC bbp and tp set too high I think.
Recently parang maganda po ang SMC?
Anu pong tingin nyo?
And ung jfc po 170 ung bbp, dapat po bang hintayin na maghit ito s 170 kung pang long term ang goal?
Hi Miss Fehl,
170 pa rin talaga buy below price natin sa JFC?
Hi ms. fehl
What is your opinion on the target price of SCC?
Hi! newbie lang ako for stock investing. Ask ko lang nag karoon ng changes sa boardlot ng ABS. anong mangyayari sa stock ko 80 pa pang binili ko na share now ang boardlot na nya is 100? mabebenta ko pa ba sya?
hello…yes po pwede mo pa rin cya e benta thru odd lot…
Hi M’ Fehl, Good day. Bumababa po ang JFC nowadays. Continues ko lang poba ang buying monthly, i’m doing PCA method po. Salamat po sa advice. – Jon
Hi ms Fehl.
I also have JFC stocks . Should I continue buying monthly even iif it’s price is going down.?
What’s your goal for JFC and what method you’re using?
Hi Ms. Fehl,
Good Afternoon po diyan.
Newbie po ako sa investing at mgstart palang mag peso cost averaging. Actually approved na lahat ng application ko. Bale ang target ko po is 5, 000 monthly and invest ko for long term. Hingi po sana ako ng advise kung ibibili ko ba sa isang company lang yung 5,000 pesos or idivide into 2.
Anu pong advise niyong specific company para sa long term investment.
Since beginner ka, I recommend staring with Mutual Funds. If you are aggressive and you can take risks, planning for long term, applicable sayo ay Equity Funds. Check out our review sa Mutual Funds on our Menu above.
Im new to your blog.
Just want to ask any opinion why GLO is not included in your list?
Hi Fehl, I’m curious as to why Meralco isn’t included in the Blue Chip list? I may have missed it in previous posts since I’m just starting out. I was keen on adding it to my humble porfolio (right now I only have 3 – oil company, power company and real estate). Also I recently participated as a small investor in Shell’s IPO (my first stocks!) but I’ve also been eyeballing Petron because the price is pretty good. Would greatly appreciate your inputs on Petron and Meralco. My goal is long term/ passive investor for now. Thanks 🙂
Hi Jane. As I mentioned, we have filtered carefully the best we can recommend from the top 30 companies. MER is still a good company but I believe due its seasonal movement, it can’t be on our priority from these blue chip list. MER is one of the most rewarding in terms of dividends though.
Hi Ms. Fehl,
Whats happening with MBT’s performance? sumasakit na sa mata ko ang loss from MBT…should i sell my stocks or its better to buy more of this stock? makakarecover pa ba ito? bought mine at 97/share and today its only 77/share. 🙁
Paper loss lang yan kumbaga unrealized loss pa lang. Pag binenta mo yan lugi ka kasi naging pera na yung stocks mo. Antayin mo lang yan lahat naman ng banks kasabay paglago nyan ng psei market.
I am considering whether invest through COL or First Metro? Do you know which one is better to help me as first time investor?
Walang charges pag cancelled
Kapag nag cancel po ba ng orders may charges ?
Thanks in advance
Hi Guys, Ms Fhel,
I’ve read about the BDO Rights Offering (Issue) is this a good or a bad news? we can make advantage of this because the market value will surely go down but it also means that BDO is struggling or it’s just another tactics or something?
The rights offering doesn’t mean BDO is struggling. I think it would benefit BDO and its vision to continually be the number 1 bank in the country. The rights offering is to raise equity and proceeds to expand strong loan growth to clients, thus more income. We must expect share price will go down a little to adjust after the rights offering.
ano kailangan imonitor sa CCI, Marunong lang ako sa MACD. Thank you
Hi ms fehl!
Maam ok lng b n s isang stock lng aq mag invest with pca?30k per month s MPI?thanks maam
Yes, PCA is good for bluechip companies and for long term
kelan pa kaya tataas ang graph (MACD) ng MPI?
USE CCI & MACD PARA DI KA MAIWANAN. Kahapon lang nga converged. 22-sept-2016. Confirmed today, 23-sept-2016. pwede ka pang maka-position ngayon. mukhang pataas pa yan till monday.
Ano po yung macd and cci? Tnx
What are the things I should consider when buying a stocks?
I want a long-term investment but I also want a short-term at the same time.
I need some tips, details and explanations regarding on it. A really big help!
Thank you in advance!
(HOPING FOR SOMEONE TO NOTICE )
stick to the bluechips when you are new in investing. research and find out what you “want”.
Only invest 20% of you money because stocks are very risky so make sure you only spend money you are comfortable to lose.
Get to know your risk appetite – are you conservative or aggressive or in between
Invest your time – if you have a long term plan, follow it and use PCA approach in investing blue chip stocks
If you like short term, go for money market funds (from Mutual Funds or UITF)
Hi Ms. Fehl! Salamat sa dailypik. My concern lang po ako. if 20% po ilalagay natin sa stocks. Ano po pwede nyong maisuggest na panglagyan dun sa remaining 80%.
Try mo ikalat sa iba ung remaining 80% mas maganda pa rin kung di ka mag stay sa one company.. sabi nga nila don’t put your egg in one basket.. malaglag man ung isa di damay lahat ng pera mo..
20% means, 20% ng income mo should go to stock market. The rest of the 80% of course sa daily/monthly expenses mo di ba? Like bills, rent( if you are renting), food, clothing, etc.
Hello Ms. Fehl. Newbie lang po ako sa stock market. nagstart ako nung Aug. 18. Ito po ung mga company na binili CEB, MEG, MBT at MPI (5k each). Ok po ba ung mga nabili ko for long term investment? (5 to 10years). Thank you in advance. God bless.
i guess not MEG atm. they have a project here in Cebu, billions, the Mactan Newtown [http://themactannewtown.com.ph/] , that is not selling (or pre-selling) even 10% of finished product. the project will be a sitting duck until the new Mactan-Cebu airport finishes in 2018 (well i hope so). point is, i do not like their “approach” on development outside metro Manila. so, not MEG for the moment.
How about Megawide po?thank you in advance.
meron po bang malapit na col sa antipolo
Hi Ms. Fehl,
Can you please give us information what is the PCA METHOD.
I made this article about PCA here: http://philpad.com/what-is-peso-cost-averaging-and-how-does-it-work/
Hi Ms. Fehl,
Is it still good to buy PLDT now at around 1800? Are there any latest news/developments affecting telecommunication? why is the price dropping?
Am planning to invest in stock (long term) under the name of my 3 yr old son., for his future. Is it possible?
yes. thru col financial nakaintrust fund lang siya. i have 2 ITF for my children
Hi Ms. Fehl,
Thank you for the informative piece. Newbie here, just want to check if its reasonable to buy CEMEX (CHP). I heard that infrastructure will be booming. Your thoughts please?
Otherwise any suggestions on what to buy? Thanks a lot!
Your site has been really helpful however I found out about it after I made my stock purchases including TEL. I bought it at almost TP so now I am -30.14% below. And it keeps getting lower. Should I let it go or should I wait on it? Thank you and more blessings to you!
hi ms fehl,is meg,sm and edc good for a long term investment?
nagdrop ng 30% ang SM today. strategy b ito o may something wrong
50% stock dividends
50% dividend in effect kaya naging half price na lang si SM
Paano mcredit un 50% dividend? Thanks.
why is SMPH skyrocketing? should i STOP buying?
most of the stocks have been going up the past days, some Duterte effect, many investors are confident again. SMPH is a bluechip, it is expected to join some other blue chip stocks to lead the way up. Continue buying if you are into PCA method
thanks so much Fehl. it just feels so unusual with stocks growing at 40%+ (SMPH) since last year.
It’s common for Holding Firms like SMPH with recurring income 🙂
What is PCA?
peso cost averaging
So glad I saw this. Newbie here. Is it possible to have a list of short term and long term stocks to invest on?
Hi maam Fehl, I bought 3 stocks, MPI, MEG & EDC. May I ask your insights with these? I’m planning for long term investment. Thanks and God bless.
MEG is not listed above our blue chip recommendations at the moment
Hello po, bakit ho na wala sa list nyo and meg. Is it fundamentals or technical dahil hinde sya naka reach ng 5 nung last week up trend nya?
MEG is currently under our Fantastic 5 stocks but not among the Blue Chips. We don’t see significant reasons to include it on the list above yet
First timer po ako sa stock market, ano po magandang blue chip for me? Long term po ang goal ko. I’m not a trader.
My initial money on stocks is 5000 php.
Try to buy just one stock, among the fantastic 5 stocks of Ms Fehl, to maximize the gains.
Dear Ma’am Fehl,
Hi ma’am Fehl, I just started joined the Stock Market ask ko lang anong magandang pang Long Term na Investment, I have now ALI, SMPH, BDO or this 3 companies are Long Term,
and CEB do you have idea what is the BBP (buy below price) and the TP (target price) to sell.
And also ma’am Fehl, I plan to buy JFC it is ok, and what is the BBP (buy below price) and the TP (target price) to sell.
The list of stocks above are good to invest for long term using PCA method. If you want to flip CEB, you must follow our flipping strategy. CEB is listed among our Magic 10 stocks as of now. Check out Magic 10 stocks page at the menu to learn more about its BBP and TP. Cheers!
lakas ni jacky…mga mahal long term nya..great investment sir..keep it up…
Hi ms fehl
If i fund into my account and buy stock every month is it automatically PCA or ido I need to activate it? How? TIA
Your portfolio will be automatically updated at present value
What do you think of MRSGI. i bought it 3.99 at IPO t 3000 shares.. nows it has around 20% at 4.7 something. its not on the list so just wanted to ask and probabl opportunity to add this somewhere. Thanks!
cheers I’ve gain both 400% at DD and yehey. I posted my info here last 2015. Those who bought last year its good for us. We Celebrate for the big profit…
Good for you 🙂 Congrats!
Hi Miss Fehl,
Is it advisable to buy stocks of PAL these days?
IMO, not these days. I’d prefer to buy CEB right now
but ceb is already at its high price. How much will be its selling price then? Thanks
Hello Ms. Fehl
May i just ask. Will you recommend JGS and EDC for long term investment?
Thank you for your reply.
gOOd day mam Fehl Dungo
Maganda ba ung EDC pang long term po ..pls enlighten me…
I’m also eyeing EDC. This is similar with FGEN, they both use renewable power plants (clean power generation). But I’m still checking this stock, and btw FGEN and EDC are under GLopez. 🙂
Any thoughts Ms. Fehl? Thanks.
nagpepeso cost averaging ako jan ngayon…ilolong term ko..
Good day! Im a newbie in investments and stocks.
Say, I have about 100k to start with and that im willing to forget for a long long time, what is the best step i should take or more like the best companies to invest with
Hi Ms. Fehl,
Do you recommend MPI, JFC, ALI and SMPH for Long-term investment or PCA?
and MEG, FGEN for Long-Term Trading ?
or please recommend stocks for beginners?
Yes, I recommend PCA for the stocks listed in the blue chips above
Hi Ms. Fhel! May i ask po kung okay po yung FLI as a long term investment?? I am planning to buy FLI stock for the purpose of longterm investment and also in terms of dividend pay out. Thanks.
Hello mam Fehl, would you recommend DD for longterm investment? Thanks po.
Hi, Tess. I won’t recommend DD for long term
This is very informative. And thank you! I am retired Fil-Am and also a long term individual investor back in the States. I just need some information where i can have a short orientation or seminar in the Philippines re stocks trading. Thank you and more power everyone.
I think puwede po kayo umattend ng seminar ng PSEAcademy every second and last tuesday of the month sa PSE mismo. Or wait for they StockMarket101 webinars posted on their website.
Nagcoconduct din ng Seminars ang Regina, BPI, COL at TRC.
Lahat ba ito sa Metro Manila ginaganap ang seminars? Sa apat na sinabi mo, alin ba ang pinaka stable na online brokers? Thank you!
no, may mga provincial seminars din sila,
I used BPI Trade 🙂 COL gamit ng karamihan 🙂
But I am eyeing for PHILSTOCKS or TIMSON for day trade 🙂
Salamat sa information.
COL most stable
Good day. I really find your site helpfuI and informative. I noticed that Tel has a BBC level at 1400 and a target price of 1750. However, current price now is 2000. Are you recommending not buying tel anymore? Looking at the graph, tel price is very low even at 2000. Why is the BBC too low?
If you’re only flipping TEL, you must follow the BBP, so I don’t recommend it now. But if you’re into long term and PCA method, it’s good to follow your periodic investment
First time investor here po. I would like to know how to start investing sa stocks. Which company po na the best example: TDAmertrade etc. and how much po. Thank you very much.
You might consider to read this http://philpad.com/best-stock-brokers-in-the-philippines/
Kay Ms. Fehl din yan 🙂
Ganon pa din po ba BBP ng mga blue chips nyo, or i update nyo base from the latest price, parang ang layo na po kasi nung iba
hi maam. 🙂
ang saya talagang mag basa ng mga questions nila. at lalong masaya kung sumsagot ka na maam 🙂 nakaka tuwa, very informative.. nakaka lungkot lang na maraming gusto mag invest sa blue chip company pero they dont really understand that they need to invest their money for a long term for them to be able to have a huge ROI. akala kasi ng iba porke nag invest ka nga 5k a month using peso cost averaging ay gusto agad doble agad ang kikitain.hehe!
thank you maam and please continue helping pilipino people lalo ang mga OFW na mamulat sa investment. wala ako sa Finacial institutions kung wala ka at wala ang mga magagadang aral na alay mo para mamulat ako sa mundo ng investment. MABUHAY KA!
Thank you so much for all your info. I would like to ask your advice pls. Is it ok to open accounts in COL and BPITrade at the same time? or is it better to maintain 0nly one account? Thanks in advance
thank you! thank you!
hahaha my random was included>>>edc… wish petroleum bounce up soon.:DDD
Hi Ms Fehl,
what do you recommend po na # of stocks sa isang portfolio?
Hi MiSS fEHL.
I really need your help po. I wanted to join long term investment but just to clarify, say for example the ALI will raise to 50.00 in the next 3-5 years example lang po ha, will I pay p5000 monthly po? kasi average ko makakaya is 3k-4k but looking at ALI it is really increasing so baka hindi ko na macover yung minimum 100 shares baka hindi na ako maka pag invest . can you confirm po? and 2nd question po can you pls clarify atleast 5 companies thats good for long term? I have seen BPI, BDO, FGEN and ALI, but I want to clarify coming from the expert po kasi 🙂 Thanks po, please reply , I’m sorry if my questions might be too stupid but I’m just so new at this, normally po kasi nag s-save lang ako sa alkansya 🙂
Hi Chant. You can stop if you can’t afford it anymore. It is your money and it is your investment. Pero syempre the more you invest, the more earning potential. We have already selected the stocks great for long term. They are listed above. Cheers!
Hi Miss Fehl,
I am an avid reader, ask ko lang po if how can you determine the companies that give dividends? I just have my bpi trade approved last friday and i am about to fund it on wednesday, can you suggest how much initial deposit should i make to fund my account and any suggestions on stocks that i can buy.
my plan is 1 or 2 stock for PCA and 2-3 stocks for flipping.
EDC na lang ang nasa BBP range. Are you going to revise the other stocks bbp? Malaki na gap nung iba
It’s because blue chip stocks are not always undervalued so we only recommend some for flipping at the right time. Nevertheless, you can invest with them anytime for long term following PCA
If you are talking about AGI International USA based financial insurance company, I would not, if it is not in an Index fund, meaning like fortune 500 S&P bla bla
AGI is a hot fast moving company and has many subsidies, so if this is on of less than 20 different stocks you own, stay way they are super crazy and volatile and almost went broke in 2008 but USA bailed them out
As Part of a portfolio, maybe but you need 20 or more to protect your ups and down, if it is less than 20, stay away but it is up to miss Fehl
No sir. I meant Alliance Global ni Mr. Andrew Tan… I think its undervalued pero halos walang nagddiscuss ng stock na to sa mga blogs and forums… am I missing something Sir?
Maam, question. What do you think about AGI? wala kasi sa mga list madalas ng mga stock market blogs.
Thank you in advance
Hi. I’m new in investing stocks. How do you see DD? I can see that it’s price rapidly increased as compared to other established developers like AC, DMC, FLI etc.
Just curious… How do you determine your target price and buy below price?
Hi, the Target Price is usually the Fair Value of the stocks and the Buy Below Price is derived from our chosen margin to our expected revenue
Hi Ms Fehl, on the BBP chart, do we have to wait until it goes down on that price? or atleast near on that price? The difference with proposed BBP difference is way too high at the current price.
If you are flipping these stocks, it’s recommended to buy following the BBP but if you’re into PCA method, you buy periodically no matter what the price is
I almost 2 years investing now in stockmarket , and im doing peso cost averaging just lately i just want to figure out how to compute my average price if i will add on my particular stock, let say example i buy URC at 175 pesos and im going to add now 20k pesos the current price now is around 199 pesos, what would be my average if i add 20k pesos, how i can compute my average price? Looking forward for your replay, GOD BLESS YOU!
Since many are asking related question about this, I will make a post about that here soon
Sum up your total buy amount including charges then divide it by your total number of shares. That would be your average price. You should have history of your stock purchases so that your total buy amount is accurate.
tnnks ms fhel ! and ruel! big help! god bless you!
hi bakit po walang MEG?????
http://www.tradingview.com/x/0qX1kN4q #MEG is currently approaching his/her support zone. much better buy with that area than to catch the “falling knives” unless you know how to drill with short-term rallies.
I’m a newbie, been reading ur articles n they’re really helpful.
I’d lyk to get started but i’m a little bobo downloading form fr col.
Cud i get help fr local.bank so as to get started, newbie din kc ako s computers e.
Just recieved as a gift lan this experia, n luckily bump into ur world.
Have a nice day n more power to share.
Goodluck. Start slowly with blue chips and diversify the fields.
Thank you for sharing your insights and advice. it is a big help for a newbie like me.
Hi Ms Fehl,
I just started to open an account at COl financial.
what would be the companies that I should start to invest?
In my experience, I didn’t choose any stock right away because I chose to have many stocks in one fund and that is through Equity Fund. Then after learning how equities work, I started to invest with BDO because it is the number 1 bank here and it pays dividends 4 times a year. Then I added some more stocks like URC, ALI and some from the Magic 10 stocks. You can also read our Stocks Guide here to learn more. You’ll be amazed about the potentials of investing 🙂
I’m planning to buy some shares in the Consumers Industry but I’m stuck on choosing JFC or URC. My mind says URC because of EPS and P/E but my heart says JFC >.< .I need your expert advice guys :). Long term investor here btw. Thanks in advance
Note: my target is to maximize my earnings thru long term investing 🙂
They are both great companies to invest with for long term following PCA. You can buy 60:40. 60% on URC and 40% on JFC perhaps?
Mam Fhel, I don’t think I can buy both of them at the same time because of the board lot 😀 I can only fund my COL Financial account 3000 pesos a month. So I’m choosing between JFC and URC. Which one do you prefer if I want to maximize my income? I’m very confused at the moment.
Good day Ms. Fehl. I just want to ask your advice on buying JFC stock. I bought it for 187 last year. It went up to 220 and today its market price is 215. Should I buy now? What is the target buying price? I’m a long-term investor.
I am not Miss Fehl, and my opinions do not necessarily reflect her information, knowledge, or her employers, and I am solely responsible for this information…Having said that, Miss Fehl, will of course, read what I say here and agree, or disagree, or even agree, and add more to it, so please read and listen to her not me, and follow her advice, since I know nothing about stocks…
First of all, all stocks go up and down, it is just a matter of which floor you want to get off on, which button you pushed, and did you get off on the wrong floor…I was at the Pearl Manila Hotel many times for many weeks, and I will be damn, even with an elevator attendant, ( YOUR FUND MANAGER) asked you what floor you wanted to go to and she or he pushed the 9th floor, for the main desk…But so many people were getting on and off, when the doors opened you saw your floor and began to get off on the 12th…The attendant Miss Fehl, said, Sir, this is the 12th floor, not the 9th…You get back on the elevator and continue…No matter what anyone says, even yourself, you will forget and get off on the wrong floor, and if the elevator is already going up and you want to go down, you can ride the elevator, up and then down, down, or take the stairs, it is up to you…As I said, stocks always go up
ANSWER #2: i WOULD HAVE SOLD AT 220, then bought back, at 215, flipping…Now, yes, as soon as you flip the price will go down to 98 a share, but you flipped, it at 220, bought back at 215, so going down, from 215 is much more fun, than from 220, and you made a flip, from 187 to 220…FOLLOW ME? If not ask miss Fehl, to tell you in Tagalog because this reality
You had the balut, to flip…You flipped above 187, at 220, and hopefully, above your fees and costs, and bought lower than you sold….So, yes, no matter what you do, when you flip, it will be too soon, or too late…This is not about the Three Bears, where Papa sold too soon mamma sold too late and baby Bear sold just righttttttttttt…It is about you learning how to flip and filliping better
LONG ANSWER 3#
If you bought, shares in Bong Bong’s auto repair, and he is still in business, and you paid, 187 php, per share, around 10 to 14 months ago, and it went up to 220 and is NOW at 215, I can tell you, it went down some-more since, you posted…RED days January 4th to 6th 2016 and BDO refused to allow us access to the graphs and daily values, because they knew, there was going to be a rise, then red days….I cannot get results since December 30th, and no it is not the holiday..Trading is done, 24/7 and they have a judiciary obligation to allow me to know the result, when the banks are open, so I could buy or sell…They failed
Nothing is going to go up and stay up, meaning, staying up, high…As Miss Fehl, said, we will see the same, with the gradual growth we saw in 2015, meaning, up 12% down 10% up 45 %, down 30 %…You will need to watch the trends and flip, if you wish to make money, short term…You will ALSO need to try and follow the trend of that stock, from 2 or 3 years ago, and keep in mind, we have 3 to 5 more rate hikes from USA Federal Reserve…If you are thinking, what does American interests rate hikes have to do with me? In the Philippines? The sort answer is: Everything, it is the world currency..
If you check BDO, they only trade in Php and USD, simple as that, so do the other banks…Also, BPI CITI corp, Citic bank, Union bank, Bof A, and so on, just Google them, and many other banks are all based in America, as well, with many branches…Your UTIF’s, if you dabble in them, are mostly based on the fluctuation of the NYSE global mining, not just pinoy, gold, silver, futures, commodities and so on…Even terrorism and plane crashes
Yes, but it is too late…..You need to wait until they go back up to 220, I should make you wait, until 250, then flip them hold the money until it goes down low, low, which it will in February…But when you need to check the trends from 3 to 5 years go to see when….
Questions ask miss Fehl or me, or better yet both
LOL the elevator attendant was funny. Raine, my answer would depend on why you buy JFC in the first place. What is your plan and strategy for it? Are you flipping it or are you investing it for long term using PCA? If I knew then, I can give you my answers 🙂 Cheers!
Miss Fehl, GREAT question, as always, I missed it, but @Raine, how many shares did you buy? All at same price? The dates are the same? Is this actually, 12 month holding? Meaning, how long have you had them? But I do sense a new flipper here, so caution, do not flip now, buy yes…We are all upside down now, or in the red
Hi ms. Fehl. I already submitted my application to col financial last dec 19 but up to now i haven’t received their confirmation. I e-mailed this morning but still no response yet. What seems to be the problem? Thanks and more power!
Hectic Holidays perhaps. Any news about it now?
Hi Ms. Fehl ask ko lang po. Are the listed companies can still change?
I noticed some already have more than the target price (SM, JFC) tho it is not 2016 yet.
Do you also had the same article for previous years (2015,1014) maam?
Do you recommend buying TEL that has the lowest price now?
Thank you for sharing MS Fehl! 🙂 God bless.
Hi Kyle. Yes, we may change these companies if we find significant reasons to do so. We always want to recommend the best. Cheers! If you’re looking for some old articles, you can visit philpad.com. For passive long term, yes TEL is good and buying while it’s low will benefit you. God bless!
Appreciate the feedback Ms. Fehl. 🙂 Does it mean you are not expecting TEL to reach the TP soon? More power and God bless Ms. Fehl! 🙂
This is only my opinion (of course I don’t have a crystal ball), yes, I think things will move slowly. TEL will face a bigger challenge this year as Telstra launches their service. Let’s see what happens.
It’s just this month I started investing in stock market. I got half of my fund invested in TEL, the reason why its the company im concern the most. haha got too excited I guess. I will just keep my fingers crossed for next year then. thank you Ms. Fehl! 🙂 God bless!
great job fehl, more blessings to u. thank u
Hi Ms Fehl,
Learned a lot from your blog, THANKS. Yesterday I started investing with ALI and MER though COL. Hopefully I made the right choices. I was considering also BPI or SMPH as my next buy. Any advice will be appreciated. Merry Christmas and regards to all
My pleasure 🙂 BPI and SMPH are both great companies to invest with for long term using PCA method. With flipping, would be great to buy if their prices are below the BBP. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Thanks again Ms. Fehl. Since I’m just starting, It’ll be for long term. Maybe i”ll try flipping as I learn more along the way in the future. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
@john….You will learn how to flip, first thing, because it is THE THING, we have to do too rise up fast…It is NOT the same thing as flipping houses or cars, but it is close…You buy a car or house, with potential, (same as stock) then fix them up, like paint on a house, some tile work, or a car new brakes tires, clean and waxing, then sell them for a profit…With stocks, you replace your materials used on the house and cars, with time in the market, and no labor invested, except you will rise up and down, more down than ups, and you scream…Having said that John, it will inch up, no matter what, or if you bought in at the right time, it might jump up…In ether case, before you sell, make sure the selling price will cover any fees, the average interest rate of a saving account, which is around 2% to 3%, and brokers fees at front and back end…Now, if you forgot about the fees, or if you bought, when low but that low was not the new floor, do we care? Yes, we care, but whatever you lost, is less than a semester in college at the King Kano school of finance…And, trust me, you will do better the next time…Oh remember, when you figure your NET profit, net meaning, everything deducted, before you flip, you need to double your fees spent, because you need to buy the same stock back, or a new dead stock, with a good future….Do your homework, before you make the first purchase, follow trends, which means, the fluctuation of the stocks you like, and graph them, because history does repeat itself it just does, so watch and you will do fine…Good luch
Many thanks for your insights. As a newbie I’ll take 1 step at a time. Merry Christmas everyone
Thanks Ms Fehl, as a newbie in stock market i personally learn on this blog.
keep it up!
Am happy to recieved updates from you again,Fehl…And it’s good to know that you are well and back????…more power and GOD bless!
Good day. Please I need some expert advice regarding my plan for long term investment in the stock market. Is it advisable that I focus on 3 stocks in my portfolio? I aim to buy shares quarterly each company listed below.
I am not speaking for Miss Fehl, or her employer, and I am certainly not an expert, but, start with these three stocks, and learn how to flip them…But, think of long term investing, in stocks, as baking a cake…You can bake a cake, with self rising dough, or using baking soda, but if you want it to really rise, you need baking powder and yeast…Read directions carefully…Now, without me blabbing on, tell me what I am saying? Start off, with self rising breads, like a zucchini bread, but once you get good at it, go for the yeast, meaning, 3 is not enough for long term growth and what is called, diversification…Spice up your bread with UITF’s, somewhere, or bonds, MMF, whatever…Baking, is not like cooking..Cooking, you can toss in mushrooms, or butter, if you like or like me white wine, but Baking, is a chemistry, of balancing acidic ingredients (stocks) with alkaline ingredient, (bonds or other sources, even savings) to get it to rise (GROWTH) You need what is called, a cash reserve, to be able to buy when low, even when your chosen stocks are on the ups, or downs, and to prevent you from touching your nest egg, in an emergancy…No matter how good or bad your choice is, stocks are all forms of equities which means yahoo, hold on I’m going to puke, from riding the market, roller-coaster…However, the cake, needs many ingredients…I would, when funds allow, chose 3 to 6 more stocks, on her hot list, flip them when they do good, buy more when they do bad, and dump them, when they suck for long time, which is not likely…FLIP HIGH, NOT PERFECTLY HIGH, JUST HIGH, THEN WAIT UNTIL THEY TANK AND BUY LOW…Miss Fehl, what do you think, you are the ate financier here LOL…I think he, or she, is on the right track, but needs to buy more, soon
hello @king kano. I bought JFC and it is going higher. Should I buy some more. Or it is more likely that JFC is on its peak already?
Depends on your plan and strategy with JFC. Before you buy any stocks, you must have a plan and strategy for it 🙂
A worth reading blog, as always.. Thanks ms. Fehl!
Yes, it is, and Miss Fehl, we all need you here…You can do this from bed, like I do, my office, for now, is in my daughters room, on here bed…LOL…Often times, humble people not realize how important and how smart they are, to others…This does not make other stupid, it just makes others different, knowing a lot about something else…I have found, province girls to be the smartest pinays: So location, education, background has little to do with God given brains…We are social beings and what social media has done, is to bring people together, who have both the same qualities and faults, into one room…We all need each other, believe it or not, like it not, I will tell you, I need you guys here and I need Miss Fehl here…I am a very well educated man, strong, aggressive, and dominate, but I have needs also, we all do…Yes, this is a great blog and informative
Hi Ms. Fehl. Hope you can put the date when your articles have been published so we can know if its updated or not.
For SEO purpose I don’t put them coz the date don’t change when I modify the posts
Hi miss fehl,
Nabili ko po kasi yung tel stocks ko last nov ng 1977 per share,ngayon po umakyat na yung price nito ng 2100. Dapat ko na po bang ibenta ito ngayon para maka secure ng profit since pabagsak ang trend ng stocks tuwing december?
THIS IS MY OPINION AND NOT THAT OF MISS FEHL OR HER EMPLOYERS…I understand what you mean by, securing a profit, but have you taken into account, the fees you MAY have paid, buying the stocks and the fees you could or WILL pay, upon selling them? (also VAT of at least 12% on the so called profit) This could whittle away at your small profit here..You are correct, December will have dips, but all 12 months do, usually, but so will 2016, off and on, thanks to the political climate, stock manipulations, and the stupid USA FED reserve, but if you can promise yourself, (AND MISS FEHL, I AM SURE) the profit will withstand your purchase price and fees, and the selling fees, I would say JUST FOR FUN SELL, NOT FOR FINANCIAL GAIN, BUT FOR FUN, YES, SELL, BUT….It is the holiday season and everyone will need and want things, including you, so this is why December has dips before the holidays then goes back up…iF YOU DO NOT HAVE SELF DISCIPLINE, I would NOT SELL and ride the roller-coaster, up and down, with a barf bag in hand, until March and flip them, then…If you wish to practice flipping, sure, sell it, if you know the actually NET gain, is above what you paid for it, and……and this is a big and….. you hope the market dips down low enough, and it should, so you can buy your own shares back, and ride up, again…I went over this, many times to make sure my English, is that of the King’s English, so read it carefully and Miss Fehl, her question was mostly in Tagalog, so if you agree with me maybe translate it into Tagalog I not want her to make a mistake
Mam Fehl, advisable po ba na for long term investment na bumili ng shares from 5 companies? Target ko po kasi na bilhin ay ALI,BDO,JFC,URC,SMPH tapos quarterly ang pagbili. Tanong ko lang po sana if maganda yung strategy na gagawin ko? Medyo nalilito po kasi ako. I need you expert advise. Thank you so much in advance po 🙂
Masyadong identical yung mga stocks na bibilhin ntin ang galling.. Now mas campante aq na tama yung mga stocks na pinili ko for long term..
Nice picks. If you are into long term investing. Let’s say 10 years or more, those companies are really great. 🙂
Identical to mine.
@Miss Fehl Good to see you back, I super missed you and so did everyone here..Yes, dividends are nice…It is like being paid to hold on to your stocks and not flip them, which is the reason for dividends…In the old days, few people flipped..It became known as, “Brown Bagging, or left holding the bag…” You kept your stocks for years, even decades, but, it was good for a slower, more stable market…What sellers of stocks did was, they divided up profits, yes, dividend, or divided, and paid you to not sell, frankly, because if you sold, before the quarter, NOPE, you did not get you share, of the divided, or dividend profits…Now, people flip like crazy, then they will buy back their own stocks, or bonds, or UITF’s, once they hear and see the damage they caused and the smoke cleared…Let’s say FORD was selling for 1500 php a share, but one day, bang, it goes down to 900 php a share..Well, there was no layoffs, no fire, no nothing, so what was it? Either a paper tantrum from something in the news, or a sell off, or both…But you know what? Those morons, will buy back their own shares, at now, below market price, and watch it go up and up, again…Also, in the old days, people loved for the stock to split, or be cut, let’s say in half, so now if you own 12 shares at 500 php of FORD stocks, you now own, 24 shares, are 250 Php..HUH? Got screwed? Maybe, if you sell off too soon, because that stock will go up to 500 php a share, again, in maybe 4 years and now you have 24 shares, at any price..So, in the good old days, buying and selling stocks was fun and you kept it, until you got your bonus check each quarter, called a dividend, and waited for your shares to split, but now, it is every man or woman for his or herself, flipping stocks
Hi Bill! Thank you for the kind messages. Already made this post before but I realized it was not published yet hehe so here it goes. Feeling better now and I hope I will be back to normal. Thanks and God bless you always. 🙂
Glad you are feeling better, because this is not fun for me, if I worry about you…I did stop checking the reply links from this blog, after the comment, I got, I felt no one was listening and they have you, which is why they are here and you are more than enough…I will e-mail you more, later, but always remember, Miss Fehl….Everyone here likes you and they need you, even I need you..You know stocks, I don’t and frankly, not care LOL, I love UITF’s, and that is it, and that is because of human default…I know it, therefore I love it, I not like stocks, so I not pursue it, but you know a lot about all of it, and that is what the Philippines needs…NOW TO EVERYONE…Investing, investment, saving, going to college, goes against 150 years of tradition…We all lost our roots…Not just the Filipino…We all forgot how to can foods, naturally, or jar preserves, salt meat, bury food in the snow, now we use freezers, we forgot to educate our children and now we just push them into the streets to work and wonder why we are poor, generation after generation…Many people here are smiling at me now, thinking this kano is nuts and that part is true…All that I said was planning for the future…I tell my wife and she gets so mad, sometimes tampo for a while, because I tell her; “I do not need to teach you how to be a woman, a wife, a mother, you know all of that, already, this is why good men, seek good wives here, but one thing you are not taught is how to plan for the future, and it is NOT my job to teach you how to be wife but how to be a widow…” I even told my banker, at BDO, this, and she agreed, and told Ruth, I was right…Now, as bad as that sounds, what is the point, of going to work? Earn money you think? Successful people…I said, successful people, not day to dayers, go to work for the future income, the next job, to build a resume, get that promotion, or raise in salary, not for today..Do you think, Miss Fehl, does this for big bucks? Wrong…It is for her future…In America we not plan for the top raman for today, we plan for the 50 kilo bag of rice, and brown rice, not white, for next month…Even if it is your favorite auntie, stop listening to them…Respect them, love them, and learn from them, but you need to plan for tomorrow, because they will not be around, tomorrow, but you will be, and this thinking goes against your culture…I am so glad to see so many Filipinas here, chatting with Miss Fehl, and so smart, because I love the Filipina, and yes, I did say smart, because I know for a fact, 80% of the time, you girls already know the answer, you just want that hi, hello, yes, hug and kiss, from Miss Fehl, to give you the confidence you need…WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT? This is a blog, Google the word blog, so ask her questions no matter how stupid you feel, even if you know the answer, or do what I do…”Hey, Miss Fehl, I think I know the answer, but I wish to run this past you first before I jump into it…” Now, everyone knows, you know the answer, and now, maybe Miss Fehl, can go farther on the subject, and not just say, yes, no wait….Miss Fehl, they might not admit it enough, but they all need you here, glad you are back…Blogging is the best medicine
Thanks for this ms fehl.
