Hap Seng latest Qeps 4.8 sen. Before the corporate exercise it was (nta 471, Q/Q 23/ 8/ 18/ 14sen ) Fv= RM1.60, now trading at RM1.30, declares a tax exepted dv 3.9 sen, going ex 9th Sept.
Hunza Pty (nta 244, QQ 7.4/ 18/ 5.3/ 5.9/ 4.2 sen) Fv= RM1.60... now trading at RM1.50, propose a tax exempted dv 5.6 sen
Gold chart suggest buying at USD 1,500/oz level. I think USD 1,550 is a good entry point. I'll be taking a position at USD 1,600/oz.
In Malaysian Ringgit, that's (1,600 x 2.98)/31.1 = RM 153/ gram
Two pre-requisites: 1).. Buy only with the cash that you won't be needing for 5 years.
2).. Buy when you have worked into a deep-seated belief that gold will rise to RM300/gm. You must be willing to "buy and forget" this asset; it's for the long haul.
People who are considering buying into units of 3 or 4 years capital guaranteed funds should fare better in this gold investment. Capital guranteed fund promise you at best 30% but hardly delivers. Gold in physical or "paper" does indeed surpasses that figure. Please dont buy into unit trust portfolio (gold miners/gold fund/ precious metal); that's a different ball game as the price of unit may not correlate exactly with price of physical gold.
Buy "paper gold" (Public Bk, Maybank, CIMB passbook) if you intend to sell within next year or so. Buy physical if you intend to hold 10, 30 years, 50 years, 100 years.? Physical gold will be most valuable when the world currencies collapse.. I joke with my friends that 20 pcs of gold coin will buy a bungalow in turbulent times like that...
Maybank will phase out the trading of Bank Negara minted Kijang Gold Coin soon and I suggest you guys go grab at least one. It may have numismatic value later.
So far our central bank Bank Negara hasn't stopped the Kelantan and Perak Govt from minting/monetising their own gold coins and using it as a monetary currency in designated public/ private enterprise. Buy some of these too as it could be rare items in the future..

If it is within your ability and capacity to adopt a pet, please do so. Having a pet is actually very therapeutic for both adults (in our stressful working environment) and kids (bonding and playthingee) too. I mean, would you rather have the kids mucking about with the dogs than have them glue to the addictive Playstn, computer games and FB...?
I was fortunate to be surrounded by pets in my early years in life. It does makes one more caring and less fearful of furry animals. I really think kids should be exposed in their pre-teens for it does brings out their compassion to the concern/needs of other, their giving of self, their responsibilty to tend to another living being. Most dogs are friendly in nature, fierce in loyalty & responsive if treated well.

A man purportedly an unlicensed money lender (aka. Ah Long) went to Citibank and asked the fund manager to invest a redundant sum of RM 100,000 in whatever financial instrument she thinks will bring him gain within a year. Accordingly the girl invested the amount into some unit trust fund and yielded a RM 3,000 profit.
Upon monetising his investment, he gave a gratuity of RM 500 to the girl who was bewildered by that generous act. Isn't this cool..? Now this is one guy who really moves money...
There are concerns that Penang island cannot absorb the high number of projects. The planned development of RM29.6bil worth of properties on Penang island in the next 10 to 15 years has raised concerns over the capacity of the market to absorb them.
The properties are planned for 1,121.56 acres which include reclaimed land and strategic locations on the island.
Eastern & Oriental Bhd is reclaiming 740 acres for the second phase of the Seri Tanjung Pinang project in Tanjung Tokong to develop two islands for mixed development projects, which will have an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM12bil.

I guess many will sell their portfolio into huge losses while some will make their entry to take a position. I think at the end of the day or week, many will make their entry after the massive selling has subsided...
Did a day trade on A.T.M.= Axiata, Telekom, Maxis.
Queue for Maybank and other blue chip counters.
Well, I'm not so smart: I only gain from the intra-day trades on TM and GenM.
Accumulated some other blue-chip counters. Wish I had bought into Maxis but then again, there were so many to pick at.. Next round then.....
Laggard stocks I like : Bjtoto, KJC, Maxis, Tambun

Saw this ad in the The Edge. KLK Bandar Seri Coalfields 2 Sty SD with land size 40' x 80' and generous built-up 3,066 sf c/w. 4+1 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms.
Priced from RM 688k, this works out to be merely RM 224 psf based on built-up.
The 2 sty link house sells even cheaper from approx. RM 360k for land size 22' x 75' and built-up from 1,960 sf. That's approx. RM 180 psf on built-up. Cheap and good, eh..?
