In the next few months, there will be many AGMs for shareholders to attend to learn more about the recent financials and future plans of the company. As some users have suggested, it would be nice to have a venue to learn when and where these AGMs are happening. And perhaps more interestingly, to be able to share thoughts, consolidate questions, or simply to know who else would be attending them. Therefore, ...

How to Install StocksCafe App
6 Mar 2018
Regularly, users would independently request for an iOS app to be built for StocksCafe. Due to limited resources, it is unlikely I can satisfy this request in the near future. However, a recent feature request made by a Friend of StocksCafe actually made me realize that I could create a pseudo app for StocksCafe. It is to simply create a shortcut (which looks like an app) on your phone that will start ...

Happy Lunar New Year! I apologize for not having any updates of late. While I continued to maintain StocksCafe and work on bugs, I took a short break from developing new features during the CNY period. In any case, I am back and the first new small feature is the ability to perform simple price simulations. Previously, whenever I wanted to find out things like what my P&L (or current yield) of ...

StocksCafe in 2018
5 Jan 2018
Happy New Year! Review of 2017 2017 has been an exciting year for StocksCafe. It started with the change of name to StocksCafe, which included the migration of domains as well as architecture change. I remember it caused many issues in the beginning and I truly appreciate your patience during those times. The main reason for all those changes was to prepare for expansion beyond Singapore. And now, ...
Quick Updates: Dividend Withholding Tax and More

Merry Christmas! I hope you are enjoying yourself this holiday season. Just wanted to quickly share some changes I have made over this weekend: Dividend Withholding Tax As StocksCafe recently started supporting US stocks, some users have requested for StocksCafe to automatically adjust for dividends based on individuals' tax status. For example, most Singapore residents would incur a 30% tax on all ...
Important Changes to StocksCafe for 2018!
17 Dec 2017
2017 is coming to an end, and I hope this has been a good year for you and your investments. This year, StocksCafe continued to enjoy great support from users. More than 300 users have contributed, either monetarily, reporting errors, or suggesting improvements. Unfortunately, as it is costly to license financial data, StocksCafe will very likely end this year in the red again despite the support. ...

Updates: Day Change and Screener Email
18 Nov 2017
This is a quick updates of two changes that I thought would be important/useful to communicate to everyone. Day Change Computation Previously, the day change shown on the main page of your personal portfolio was computed naively. It was simply how many shares of a stock you own at the end of the day multiply by the change in price (TodayClose - YesterdayClose). DayChangeForAStockPreviously = SharesYouOwnAtEndOfDay ...
"Overall, this is a simple and easy to use platform. Its free to use so no harm giving it a try if you're an investor also."
SG Young Investment
"Previously, I have tracked my portfolio using Excel and VBA to get live stock quotes from Yahoo Finance. However, that was a tedious and awkward way to track and share your own portfolio (compared to using SGXcafe)."
The Magic Formula
"I found SGXcafe to be easy to navigate and has all the useful information at one glance."
"100% local made website for your portfolio needs"
"After fiddling with it for the past week, I have been impressed by the intuitive, user-friendly and aesthetically-pleasing features on its platform."
