  • Buy – means buy the stock because the stock is currently cheaper than its fair value
  • Stop – obviously means pause or stop buying for a while and buy other stocks from the list instead
  • Hold – means hold your shares of stocks for a while and wait for the sell signal
  • Sell – means we reached our Target already and it’s unacceptable to buy some more because of the market valuation. Sell your stocks and reap your profit.

  2. Hi Fehl,

    I’ve recently gone back again to investing and I’ve been reading your posts for the past several weeks. Seems like your top five hasn’t changed and the suggested BBPrices hasn’t moved at all even as the stock prices are going down. Are both the stock picks and prices still good today especially as we look into a week of ECQ? Thank you.

    Reply
    • Hi Eric, the stock picks here are good for long term. It will take a while before they reach their target price because of pro-long cause of pandemic and the return of ECQ. However, we see it as good opportunity to buy the dip and correction. The world needs more time to recover, likewise the market. Stay safe and healthy 🙂

  3. Hi! I recently started investing because stock prices dropped this pandemic. I currently have shares in BDO, BPI, JFC, ALI and SMPH. Their prices are continuously rising but I want to buy more of their stocks. Is it okay if I buy more even if I acquired my current stocks in much lower prices? If so, how long do you recommend I hold all of my investments? What other companies would you say I add in my portfolio? Thank you so much.

  4. Hi Ms Fehl,

    Una sa lahat salamat.

    Napansin ko lang po, bumaba ung BB at TP, ibig sabihin yung MPI ko dati average ko 4.9 tpos target ko ay 8pesos, pag nag base ako sa bagong table binenta ko ngayon luge ako..

    Any particular reason bakit bumaba?

    Thank you po ulet.

  5. Hi Madam,

    Una salamat sa pagbabahagi mo ng impormasyon.

    Medyo matagal ko na to sinusundan, ngayon ko lang napansin bumaba yung target at buy below price, ibig sabihin nakabili ako mas mataas na presyo noon, tapos ngayon pag binenta ko luge ako..

    Example yung MPI dati 8pesos target non, ang average ko jan ay 4.89

    Salamat!!

    • Hi Wendell, salamat sa mensahe 🙂 Market condition and stock valuation change over time. Because of that, we adjust the target and buy-below price. Most of the performance of companies decline this year due to the pandemic. We expect a significant rebound by 2021. To avoid losses, hold your shares. What you see right now is unrealized loss. Only you can make them “real” if you sell or close your trades. Keep safe and God bless 🙂

    • Hi, Queenie. Sad to hear you have ABS shares. The company is suspended in the PSE. The PSE also requires ABS CBN to submit a full disclosure on the impact of non-renewal of its franchise, financial status, and business plans for the future. Investors and shareholders of ABS are waiting for that compliance so they can trade or sell their shares in the PSE again.

  7. Hi Ms. Fehl,

    Just started investing and followed B5 and F5 table. Just would like to ask, if the rates (Buy below price, TP and CP) on this page are getting updated on regular basis??

    Again thank you for sharing your knowledge to everyone and helping us to reach our financial goal.

  8. Hello, good day po, this is Leo and I have been following your site since 2018, I was able to start investing with BDO nomura platform and now I am looking to get back to stock investing. Gusto ko lang po itanong regarding dun sa Fanatstic 5 kung halimbawa po na reach na natin yung TP, at our own cost, is it advisable na isesell na yung stocks, then set another TP? I would love to hear answers po sa kung sino mang nakakalam na ng sagot. I would highly appreciate it. Salamat and God Bless. Keep safe. Happy investing 🙂

  9. I’m trying to follow your F5 and B5 Ms. Fehl. Matagal tagal na rin po bago ko nabuo itong 10 stocks. I only allot 8k per month to buy just 1 stock. Is it really the way it should be? Nahihirapan po kasi ako magdecide which stock should I buy first, should I buy F5 or B5 muna. Hope maenlighten niyo po ako and I would appreciate anyone who can give his cents as well. Thanks!

      thank you for this.
      I stumbled upon your website recently.
      some of your stocks, mayroon din ako.
      i only have 3 stocks to hold for long term. AC, SM and JFC. And, I am eyeing ICT and GTCAP.
      i usually do buy and sell, so far okay naman sya, i am enjoying it.

      Happy trading everyone!

  13. Hi Madam,

    Just a question involving the current situation in the ph market. My current strategy in the market right now is long term investing. But since solving the covid crisis is still uncertain, the more riskier it gets for the businesses and this scares investors. How confident are you that the current prices right now will recover in the future assuming that the the pandemic still continues throughout the year? Thank you in advance! 🙂

    Reply
    • Hi Karl 🙂 The pandemic is a big wake up call to investors to choose wisely where to put their money and to invest only in stable companies. As a long term investors, I’m always with the market (not against the market) so I’m always confident my money will grow in 5 years or more. Prices may not recover this year but there will surely be recovery in the future. Smart long term investors cannot miss opportunities like this to buy more.

      Assuming low prices of stocks continue throughout the year, not a problem to long term investors because they don’t get scared when prices fall. They actually like it coz they buy more. It worries short term investors who want to cut losses. But good traders know what to do. They do hedging, invest in ETF, treasury bonds, gold or any asset that they find profitable. Cheers!

      • Thank you so much! 🙂 I do purchase my stocks on a monthly basis but had doubts when the price broke support. Will stick to my long term strategy now that you’ve shared your thoughts. Thanks again!

  14. Hi Ms. Fehl 🙂 First of all, and I’ve been meaning to say this for a long time, I really admire your strategy and courage in investing/trading in the stock market – be it in Philippine stocks and international stocks.

    Second, I have a question, which prompted me to leave you a message here and I hope you can respond 🙂

    I’ve been investing in the Philippine stock market for 2 years and I’ve finally decided to buy international stocks this march 2020. I’ve been researching and earning money for it since last year (mostly because I was stumbled into your blogs and got inspired on buying from etoro). I’ve copied you in etoro by the way. I have earned another lump sum from my wages and I wanted to invest it again to buy stocks.

    Is it better if I put my hard-earned money in Etoro for now instead of buying Philippine stocks? I’ve noticed that the Philippine stock market is not doing good lately. At first I’ve seen some companies going up after the march slump, but now it’s like they’re not moving. Thank you Ms. Fehl!

    Reply
    • Hi, Nicole 🙂 Thank you for your kind message. You’re doing great for investing both PH stocks and foreign stocks. And of course, copying me on eToro 🙂 It’s always better to have both investment. You can invest 30% to PH stocks and 70% to eToro. The reason why our stocks on eToro move up faster is because I always select companies that have high trade volume and I choose prominent brands from the UK, USA, Switzerland, Germany, and France.

      Investing in PH stocks still have potential and I love our country so I maintain my holdings with the giants here. Going long for it 🙂 However, trade volume here is lower compared to the global brands I maintain on eToro. There is less than 1% of Filipinos invest in the stock market. You and I are part of it 🙂

  17. I hope this makes sense. I’ve lost 45% na with my AC stock. This is for long-term sana. Should I sell it na and then buy back in, same stocks pa din?

    Reply
    • Hi 🙂 If you sell now, you will incur real losses. Since you mentioned long term, stick to it as long as you can. Just buy using new funds to to make up for the unrealized losses while there is Covid19.

      Reply
  18. Hi, would you recommend buying at least the min. boardlots of all these magic 10 stocks ALL AT ONCE in the midst of the pandemic? i’m a beginner investor and i’m trying to figure out if it’s better to buy min. stocks from these 10 at the same time or buy more than the minimum boardlot of say, 5 companies first?

    Really appreciate this site – learned so much in such a short amount of time!!

    Thank you

    Reply
    • Hi 🙂 Yes, but with the blue chips only. Buying during recession and market crash will reward you in the future when the market recovers. It is important you choose only those companies with potential and well established.

      Reply
    • Hi 🙂 Only you know how much risk you can tolerate 🙂 Also those are unrealized losses, if you close them, you already lost. The question is, can you still hold on?

      Reply
        • You should not worry if the companies you are investing for long term are valuable, well established, and with good balance sheet. This market cycle will pass and normal days will happen again 🙂

          Reply
  19. Hi mam, yung meaning po ba ng board lot is the minimum number of shares you can buy on a particular company? Like board lot 10, 100, 1000?

    Reply
    • Yes, because the PSE uses a minimum Board Lot or round lot system that specifies the minimum amount of shares one can buy or sell. The minimum amount of shares will depend on the market price of the stock. Example, if the price of stock you want to buy is P188, the minimum boardlot is 10. You can then buy shares in 10, 20, 30 and so on as long as it’s divisible by 10.

      Reply
    • Speaking of board lots, I was trying to buy shares of Metrobank, only to find out they changed their board lot size from 10 to 100. I thought BDO Nomura was just having glitches.

  20. Hi Ms. Fehl, earlier, my AC stock was on 25% profit. But after Pres. Duterte’s tirades on Ayala and MP groups after the discovery of some onerous provisions in the water concession contract, it’s now 5% loss. My other heavily affected stocks are ALI (9% loss) and MPI (27% loss). My AC stock is for long term, while ALI and MP are for flipping. What do you think will be the future of these stocks if the government files a case against Ayala and Pangilinan? Should I cut loss now? Thanks in advance.

    Reply
    • Hi, no worries, all global markets (not just PH) were down the past few days. PH economy was also affected by global market correction and just recently, China virus. If the government filed a case against those companies, stocks will surely fall but I don’t think it’s gonna be a massive decline. It’s not advisable to cut loss now while the iron’s still hot. Let the dust settle for a bit. All companies face some scandal at some point. As a long term investor and who believes on those companies so much, it’s a great time to buy on the dip 🙂

  21. Hi, Ma’am Fhel! as per fantastic five strategy. how much and how often do you mean by “invest slowly & dont stop until tp is reached?” would that be on a daily basis on a 1k budget? correct me if am worng. newbie here.

    • Glad to see MPI is recovering at P3.11 now as of Dec. 17, 2019.
      So far di pa naman siya tinanggal sa Magic 10 Stocks , so I guess I should hold onto my MPI stocks, especially since I am a long term investor?

  22. Hi Fehl,

    I already have 3 of your BIG 5 in my portfolio, except for JFC and SM. I find SM a bit too pricey for my budget, though. Would you recommend MER? I’ve had it since 2017.

    • Hi, Dante. I like Facebook’s fundamentals however, I’m not so convinced to invest with Libra especially when companies who used to backed it up like MasterCard, PayPal, Visa, and eBay stopped joining the project. Maybe not the right time yet.

      • Hai maam Fehl, im still new at this kind of investment. If I only invest once like 10k lump sum is it still profitable? Can investing 10k twice a year be possible?

        Reply
        • Hi, yes you can invest that amount if you like it. You are the boss 😉 It will always be profitable as long as you choose the right companies and you know your strategy (ie: make 1% per month or 12% per year). The higher the investment, the higher the return

  23. Hi I have my col account for a long time but im not active trader but decided to be active again. I was wondering if you still recommend mpi, I know its good to buy kasi nasa bbp but I bought a few shares 2 years ago and Im at loss of 19% would you still recommend me to buy more of their stocks? what do you think?

    Reply
    • Hi, MPI is a very good company but its price is slow to move up. If you still can keep your shares, I suggest hold them until you see some gains. Perhaps, 5% or up profit is good then.

  24. hi i need suggestions po.. i bought BDO and DNL 5 years ago pero napabayaan at di nadagdagan ng funds.. at this time BDO has 67% gain and DNL has 150% gain.. i’d like to make BDO my long term investment and DNL for medium to long term investment pero for sure pag bumili ako ngayon mag-aaverage yung price nila.. ano po suggestion nyong dapat kong gawin?

    Reply
  25. hi fhel. May 120k ako pero hindi ko alam san pwedeng iinvest. mairerecommend mo ba iinvest ko siya sa Fantastic 5 kasi short term lang gusto ko diyan. May ongoing long term investment din kasi ako. thank you

    • As a newbie and for those who don’t have time to study companies on a deeper level like me, i think using the magic 10 strategy for now is better.

  26. Hi Fehl,
    I started investing in JFC but not as BIG 5 Strategy but for Flipping since the price is so undervalued as of today. Actually na hit niya na yung 2 year Lowest price niya (217php) which makes me interested to buy more of JFC. The sudden decline I think dahil sa acquisition nila sa CBTL (Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf).
    Will you include this as well sa UnderValued list niyo? Tingin mo mas bababa pa lalo price niya?
    Nabasa ko rin sa news na makakabawi rin naman ang JFC so would you recommend it for flipping?

    Reply
    • Hi 🙂 The sudden decline was caused by CBTL, yes and also the market is down due to US and China trade war. Last week NASDAQ and S&P500 were down, as well. Today, Asian markets are on decline. I think everything will recover soon so it’s wise to invest now while stocks prices are on dip.

  27. Miss Fehl, hingi sana ako ng advise, meron akong BDO 570sh lang nabili ko 110/sh pa lang, ang price now is already 147.90. May gains na akong 32%. Gusto ko pa sanang dagdagan kaya lang kung bibili ako sa presyo ngayon, mas tataas ang average price ko, Di ako makahabol kasi tag 10sh lang ang kaya kung bilihin. Gusto ko pa naman sanang i-long term ito.

    Gano din sa aking mutual fund na Philequity 2991sh with average price of 35.80 ang price now is 40.48. If 7-10 years at least bago ibenta, bibili pa ba ako kahit mataas na ang NAVPS ?

    Miss Fehl, pwede bang pakilinaw kung bibili pa ba or ano lalo na sa BDO?

    Maraming salamat. Your reply will be profoundly appreciated.
    God bless .

    Reply
    • Hi, Sabel. If your goal is long term investing, you shouldn’t care much about the price of the stock as long as you invest regularly and you choose an excellent company. BDO is a great company for long term so yeah, after 5 years or so, you’ll see income in the long run. Do not be greedy and do not be affected emotionally when the market goes down or up, stick to your goal. Cheers!

    We just hit the target price for FGEN. I’m looking forward to know kung anong magiging kapalit niya sa F5. 🙂 Although, do you think it would still be a wise idea to keep it since may new valuation for it, pegging it to be around 30.20? Thanks!

      • Hi guys, need your advise. Naloka rin ako kay FGEN, natuwa ako kasi may profit na ko na 3k so I decided to lock in my profits and sell -just to try kasi newbie pa ko and have never sold my stocks before. Edi okay na, kaso ang next mistake ko is yung 500 stocks na binenta ko, binili ko uli ng 500 stocks. So nag breakeven lang ako nun? -_- kainis lesson learned. Pano ba dapat gawin after mo makakuha ng profit and gusto mo pang palaguin? Need help Ms. Fehl.

        Reply
        • Hi there! We have the same feeling when I was starting. But as time goes by, we learn. For me, I try to invest the profits sa Big 5. And then reinvest yung original amount sa F5 para lumago.

          Reply
          • Thank you sa reply Mark Ian! As a newbie, akala ko basta may realized profits ka na after selling – sure na may gains ka na. Yun pala, importante rin where you will reinvest. Hindi pala basta basta bibili ka lang ng stocks. And true that as we go along, we keep on learning. Hindi naman ako nalugi, pero I learned an important lesson. Salamat sa inputs mo. 🙂

      • Miss fehl! Maraming salamat po! Kaka benta ko lang today ng fgen and ali ko though di ganun kalaki pero may kita na. First time ko po mag sell then i pang buy ko din po sya ulit ng f5 and b5 naten. Marami po ulit salamat sa inyo! Godbless!

    Reply
    • Hi! You could actually look at it in two ways:

      1.) mabibili na yung stock at a bargain since mababa ang price
      2.) you are incurring losses as compared to how much you bought the stock before

      I suggest the use of trailing stops to prevent further losses-like -10% or -15% depende sa risk tolerance ng investor.
      But if you look at these stocks on a bigger picture, these fluctuation in prices are irrelevant over the long run.

      Reply
  34. Hi Ms. Fehl. Itanong ko lang bakit yung Average Price mas malaki kaysa sa market price? samantalang pagbili mas mababa ang market price e.g. Market price 5.000. After pag Buy nagkaroon agad ng average price na 5.100. Nag negative tuloy sa Gain/Loss column. Many thanks.

  46. Hi Ms. Fehl,

    Im new to stock market. I have a bpi trading account and currently i have 100 shares on 1 of the big 5. I’m planning to buy shares very soon but i’m not sure if i should buy on the same stock which will basically add to my 100 shares or should i buy a new stock already and complete the F5 first? And let’s say i have shares on all of the F5 already, should i regularly increase (say monthly, as recommended on the post) my shares until the target price is met (then sell)?

    • JFC is under BIG 5 category which means for long terms investment (10years+).so no TP is necessary it will be depend on investor when he/she will sell the shares.

      Reply
    • Hanggang 427.50 ceiling price according to COL. Pero tama si ate Jhen depende sa investor kung ano target price kasi for long-term naman yan. May resistance level around P305 kung short-term. Ang fair value as per latest report P280/sh FV.

    I’m hesitant to buy my first stock, what stock? how much should i buy? and anything.
    What I have in mind were BDO and ALI. Are they good?

    Thank you so much. God speed! 🙂

    Reply
    • Hi Melpen 🙂 Welcome to Dailypik. I know the feeling of excitement when you’re a beginner with stocks. I recommend starting with blue chip stocks because they are already established companies so you would minimize risk. BDO and ALI are excellent choices especially now 🙂 BDO is very generous in terms of dividends. ALI has recurring income making it one of my fave stocks 🙂 How much should you invest? Only you can answer that because it depends upon your financial capacity and status. Invest 20% of your income with blue chip stocks, you’re gonna reap the rewards of income in the coming years. Cheers! 🙂

    Thank you for this simple blog yet so informative.

    I’m planning to buy 100 units from JFC, do you think it’s still a good buy knowing that it closed to 293? Or is there a possibility that it would go low?

    And btw, how to know what is the minimum units to buy and how will I knkw if a certain stock will release dividend,may it be cash or stock.

    Thank you in advance!

    • Hi Jerome, If you are planning a long term investment then it is a good buy in my opinion. Based on it’s history, JFC is going up and will still go up in future.

      Reply
    • Hi Jerome 🙂 Yes, JFC is one of the best blue chip stocks I recommend here in Dailypik. Food is king 🙂 Check out the boardlot to know the minimum number of shares you can buy with a certain stock. Type the code of a stock and select buy, you’ll see the boardlot. You can check out our dividends page here in Dailypik or check out your broker’s dividends schedule.

    Any thoughts on MBT stock offering? And can you compare it with the stock offering from EDC? I just want to know if I have to sell or keep adding MBT now?

    Reply
    • Hi Ann 🙂 MBT is still performing excellent. I personally say YES to the stock rights offer if your strategy with MBT is long term passive investing. MBT will raise capital for strong loan growth. If you are into long term, it will benefit you more. BPI also announced stocks rights offer. I’m also giving it a go for long term strategy. However, if you’re into short term, the stock rights might cause the price of the companies to drop a bit although not significantly. Cheers!

          • Come to think of it kung long term investment why sell MBT pala? Blue chip company siya, among the leaders sa banking.. kung may extra ka pera ???????????? yun na lang pambili ng fgen

          • Boss Onin, ganun din po ginawa ko pero hindi lahat ng shares ng MBT binenta ko kasi mas malaki profit pag tumama sa target price na 120 kaya hold muna.From 88pesos ang MBT nabenta ko sa 102. Maganda magbuy ngayon ng FGEN 15.9 lang mas mabilis mapababa ang average price, ang P/E ratio ng FGEN nasa 7-9 ata.Yung sa akin from 22% paper loss nasa 10% na lang habulin ko pa rin. Kaya magandang reference talaga ang table ni Ms. Fehl.

  58. Hi Ms Fehl good day. Tanong ko lang if its worth buying BDO stocks 10 shares per month for 7-10 yrs at the current price of P160 – P 161 per share? Gusto ko kasi ang BDO kaya lang 10shares lang kaya kung bilhin per month. Sana sagutin mo tanong ko. Maraming salamat.

  61. Hi Fehl!

    Quick question maam…
    Been reviewing the charts of some of the companies you listed, and it seems like that every last week of December, the prices of these stocks are low. Will this be good buying time for long term investments?

    Thanks Fehl!

    Reply
    • If I may add…GLAD you do your homework meaning watching the trends and yes your observations are spot on

      However all forms of stocks MM UITF will do this because they are connected to the same market 4th. Quarter hysteria, which is directly influenced by the Thanksgiving holiday and Christmas.

      If you are one who understand flipping, 3 to 4 days before Thanksgiving USA time is wise to sell and wait untill it just passes your sell price

      All of this will go up and down because of the insider trading and tred watchers like you, and once again….good job….

      Ass I said I find it best to be ready to jump back in anytime after the 19 or 22 of December, or wait until mid janauary, but watch the markets guys….it can. Spike with Christmas joy and rum then drop again…check you graphs

      For those of you who are long term, in for the long term, meaning brown bager, just sit tight and ride it out….the market is always volital this time of year…never ever sell low out of fear or buy high out of manic buying

  62. Hi Mam Fehl, or to any active members of this page. hhingi po sana ako ng advice about CHP dahil 52% na ang loss ko. ano po sa tingin nyo ang gagawin ko dito? ang laki kasi ng loss eh kaso parang di na makkabawi.

    Reply
    • I bought CHP last month @ 5 per share pero nag cut loss na ko nung umabot na sa above 10% loss ko. Baguhan din lang ako stocks, umaasa rin lang ako sa payo. But, one thing na most helpful na gawin is always be aware sa standing ng company you invested your hard earned money to. CHP’s earnings dropped down drastically the past months. They changed their boardlot to 1k from 100 per boardlot. Actually, halos lahat pala ng companies involved sa cement ay downtrend ang stocks, makakabawi yan kaso parang matatagalan.

      Reply
    • CHP is included in the undervalued stocks and have great potential for growth. But you may want to lower the average value of your CHP stock now since it may be much higher than the current BBP if you say that your current loss is at 52%.

      The technology is improving, solar energy and storage solution is the energy of the future and its coming fast, and the prices is spiraling down.
      by of mid 2020’s there will be lots of off grid connection. Some analyst says solar energy will be so cheap that even power producer will give the electricity for free it cant compete with it,,, why? there is transmission (transco) and distribution cost (meralco).
      Solar is off grid 🙂 like tesla roof.

    For almost 2 years I followed the Magic 5. It is very effective, maybe except to FGEN 😀

    I have budget of 16K every month, so I buy 2 stocks (8K each) per month. My portfolio today is not balanced, my fgen is almost 40% of my port. ceb and meg around 20%, ew and mbt around 10%. is that alright?

    Should I stop buying fgen even the price is under bbp?

    It is so hard to balanced the port, specially if other stocks price are above bbp.

          • If you are really serious about it, I suggest you buy books on investments. You can search online for the recommended books or you can visit your favorite bookstore. Personally, I prefer visiting bookstores over surfing the net. Please do not look at price of the book. Consider the content. also, do not look at it as an expense. It is actually an investment – a very good investment.

          • You can look at COL’s data at Research >> Fundamentals. It gives the current price, the TP, and the BBP. You can use that as a basic guide.

            Alternatively, you can get the TP from there, then set 20% lower than the TP as your BBP.

Also, if you are a COL subscriber, you are lilkely to have access to the COLing the shots reports. These are really good reports with stock recommendations. I don’t think paying 500 monthly for the TRC membership is worth it.

      • Hi member din ako ng TRC parang hindi worth it yung sa TRC. Mahal kasi ng membership fee. I’m planning to check nalang yung stock recommendations dito sa dailypik and colfinancial. san ko ba makikita ung reports with stocks recommmendations sa COL financial? d ko pa kasi masyadong naeexplore website ng colfinancial. thanks!

  92. Hi Ms. Fehl is it ok to mix some undervalued stocks with some big 5 and some f5 thanks a lot for giving free advice to newbees like us

    • Hi Sir Ed,

      You can do that. It all boils down to your strategy. Just make sure to stick to your strategy. Do not be carried away by your emotions. Also remember, patience is a very important virtue in investing in stocks.

    • Hi. Always know your priority and I recommend you prioritize your chosen stocks from B5s and mix them with any or some from F5. Then if you have excess money, choose a blue chip with a BUY action from the list of Undervalued

  94. Hi Ms. Fehl,

    Ask ko lang sa Big 5, say BDO. If higher than BBP ang price/sh n’ya, ok lang ba na mag-buy pa rin ng stocks?

    Thank you.

    • With Big 5, there is no BBP being followed because we use PCA method. We buy those stocks every month or every period (we prefer) as long as it’s regularly regardless of the price of the stocks. Big 5 stocks are blue chip stocks from giant companies, already established. We have chosen those 5 companies because they have strong balance sheet, great performance and high potential for long term

      • to make life easy for me, every month or quarterly i would buy big 5 stocks (regularly) and use the pca method. I dont know the pca method is it a method i should know, I buy the big stocks and just leave em alone for the next 10 years.

  96. Ms. Fehl, pasensya na may pahabol ako na tanong, itong si ALI di ba napakamahal ang price nya ngayon kasi ang P/E ratio nya is 22.94? Tama ba maam, mahal sya ngayon kahit I-long term? Okay sa mga nakapagsimula noong mura pa sya, eh paano kung ngayon pa lang ako magsimula bumili di ba mahal na?

    Please help. Thank you maam. & Merry Christmas!

  97. Hi Ms Fehl,
    Good day po Ms Fehl. Tanong ko lang po updated pa rin po ba yung ng Target Price sa Stock list ng F5 lalong lalo na yung sa MEG? Kasi nabasa ko sa COL research regarding sa MEG, na nagreduce sila ng bagong Fair Value from 6.19 to 5.78php/share..Kasi dito ako sa stocklist mo sa F5 nakabase sa investment ko using SAM strategy..
    Salamat po and God bless.

  98. Hello fellow stocks investors,
    The value of of TEL is going dow and i am at 20% loss. Any feedback if its going back to its >2000 value.
    Or should i sell now to cut loss?

    Reply
    • i got 37% loss on my PLDT but i’m not really hurried to cut loss.
      when the guidance for profits were changed this year, the target for comeback of pldt was 3 years.

      in the near term, i wouldn’t expect pldt to do well. but it should get better in 3 years.
      so if you are looking for short term, i suggest you sell once it bounces back a little. but if not, just hold it out. it’ll get better. there are only 2 telco right now. even if a third one comes, i dont think tel will go down the drain even in 10 years time.

    Matanong ko lang yung UITF investment ko sa BDO 2014 October pa yun pero hindi ko po siya na hulungan buwan buwan, ngayon 2016 na po tayo pwede pa kayang hulong hulongan yan ang 5k per month para magamit ko naman yung PCA. ngayon ko lng to nalaman sa blog mo eh….maraming salamat po.

      • Hi Fehl, BPI Philippine Index Fund, at meron din ako sa BDO Equity Fund and BDO Sustainable Fund, Meron din po akong EIP

        Ang tanong ko po, it is advisable po ba nga hulong hulongan ko sila every month? Yung EIP automatic po yun pero kaltas every month…

  100. Hello!

    I’m fairly new to stock investing (Started July 2015) 5/8 stocks I’ve invested in are blue chip, however I made the wrong move of buying above BBP of some of the stocks. The rest are for flipping. And now, all I see are RED! >.<

    My port loss is now almost 10%. The stocks I have the largest loss percentage are mostly sa blue chips kasi nga I made the wrong move earlier. I know hindi ako dapat magpapadala sa emotions but this is my first time having this amount of loss. I'm just a little worried if my port will recover or not. I know we all have to be patient, I'm just too praning to look on the bright side hahah. All I can do now is average down.

    Any wise words for a newbie like me?

    • Hi Rebecca, hindi ka nag iisa. newbie rin ako at lampas 10% na loss ko..

      Pero sabi naman nila wag mag alala. On the long term, makakabawi rin ang mga namulang stocks. Malulugi ka lang naman kung ngayon mo ise-sell ang mga stocks mo.

      Reply
    • Don’t worry those blue chips target time is around 5 or more years, Wag ka lang muna madala sa emosyon. As long as maganda napili mo at maayos yung P/E at P/BV ratio ng company you have nothing to worry about.

    • tama yan…habang negative pa portfolio mu e magipon ipon kana ng pang average mu…stock market nman talaga ang nag pupush saten para magsave ng pera…parang ako…last week,,14k negative sa port ko,,ngayon 6k nalang…kc nag aaverage ako at marunong akong mag hintay..

    • Hi Niel,

      If you are to use SAM, you cannot find BBP of big 5 stocks here. If you are a COL account holder, you may use their coling the hots report. The problem with the coling the shots report is that it does not give sell signal. Also, it is not updated daily. You have to make some decisions yourself.

      Reply
        • Investment guide will give you a BBP and a target price. Than means you can buy the stock if it is below the BBP and you can sell it when it reaches the TP which is usually the Fair Value of the stock. You can use it if you are following SAM strategy or if you are an investor type.
          On the other hand, the technical guide will tell you whether a stock is currently in uptrend, downtrend or sideways. You may use it if you are trading, but you can’t just rely on this as this is also not updated in a daily basis. You have to study technical analysis if you want to trade.

  102. Ms. Fehl, hello po. Magstart na po akong mag-invest really soon, at naisip ko lang kung enough na ba na sa Big5 lang ako mag-invest at hindi na sa F5? Medyo di ko kasi gets kung pano yung sa F5 e.

  103. Hi Ms. Fehl,

    Im newbie in this investment. Actually i opened my COL account last May of this year and until now i’m still learning and thankful for your blog,i learned a lot because it is very informative. i have question Maam Fehl.

    If I would like to buy stock listed in Fantastic 5 and wait for the price reached it to the Target Price before selling it. Is it necessary to buy that Stocks using EIP or buy directly for that particular stocks and fund it monthly if the price still below buy below price?

    Thank you in advance for your reply.

    God Bless and Best Regard

    • Hi RjXhan,

      Congratulations for taking courage to invest in the stock market. Using COL EIP can help because it reminds you of your scheduled investment. However, COL EIP is not required in our strategy ass long as you have the discipline to follow our strategy.

      I would like to add that in our strategy, We keep on funding our portfolio even the stock we have chosen in the F5 reached its BBP. The additional cash in your portfolio can be used to buy other stocks in the F5 which are still priced below their BBP. You can also buy stocks in the B5 and hold them in the long term.

      Putting money in your portfolio regularly is significant in using our strategy.

      • Hi Sir Jem,

        Thank you for your reply, it gives me more confident on investing in stock market. However, I have one concern Sir Jem that needs your expert advise, Is it advisable now to buy MPI stock for long term investment using PCA strategy?i have hesitation to buy MPI now since the current price are already above the BBP and almost hit the Target Price.. Any advice Sir what to do or shall i find another stock rather than MPI which the price still below BBP?

        Thank you and May God reward you abundantly for helping others to be financially literate like me.

        • Hi RjXhan,

          Sorry for the late reply. When using PCA, we do not consider BBP. The F5 stocks above have BBP because we use SAM here. MPI is a good company and investing in MPI using buy and hold or PCA strategy is good. But if you are going to use SAM, you better choose other stocks when MPI is trading above BBP. You may choose any F5 stocks above.

          Note: I assumed you already know the difference between PCA and SAM. If you need further explanation, please let me know by replying to this comment and I’ll be happy to respond.

            Thank you and May God Bless you with abundant blessings..

    • If you’re using the Peso Cost Average strategy, kahit bumaba pa man yan, okay lang kasi pang long term naman ung strat na to, eventually magrerecover ulit yan 🙂

      Reply
    • Hi Eugene,

      What strategy are you using? Peso Cost Averaging (PCA)? Buy and Hold? Strategic Averaging Method (SAM)? I hope you’re using one of those strategies because we are investors here and not traders.

      If you are using either PCA or SAM, you must be happy because you can buy more shares at cheaper prices. If you are using buy and hold strategy, there’s nothing to worry about because you intend to intend to hold your stocks for very long time anyway. I suggest that those who are using buy and hold strategy stop looking at your portfolio frequently.

      The important thing is to stick to your plan. Keep your emotions in control to avoid mistakes in making investment decisions.

      • Hi Jem,

        I use SAM. Thanks for the advice, it really gets into my head when I see those red figures.

        Anyway, I’m just pissed that a day after I bought some stocks, then the next day those prices dropped big time, hence my comment above. I should have waited for another day. lol

    • Hi Can. If you are buying shares from FGEN now? I think bears are still in control (downtrend), wait till close of the market this week if signal shows the “morning star”, likely we will see a bottom reversal bullish pattern. Have a look after you log in to your COL account (Check on your Chart 1 Year/Week view. I’m not a professional trader it’s just an opinion based on my technical analysis. Good luck.

      • No worries, I’m investing on FGEN via PCA. I’m still kind of new as to how to determine the start and end of a bull or bear market. I just asked since I plan to sell it once it goes near the target price. I still don’t want to invest at JFC (my target blue chip) since in my opinion as of this time the price is overvalued. I only invest in stocks with basic numerations from warren buffet lessons like P/E ratio and P/BV fo
