I just realized that it has been almost a month since I last wrote in here! I wanted to drop a quick note so that people know that StocksCafe is still in active development :)

Apart from all the bug fixes and touch ups here and there, I have been spending most of my energy on upgrading the infrastructure of StocksCafe. Previously, everything about StocksCafe is basically packed into one server. As one server is easier to maintain, I tried to refrain from going beyond one by doubling the size of the server. Obviously, there is a limit to that. StocksCafe would sometimes crash or become extremely slow during peak hours due to the different processes fighting for resources (i.e. CPU and memory).

As such, I spent the last week working on splitting components into different servers so that there will be less fighting. Now, there are four servers working together to keep StocksCafe up and running! This will not only enable StocksCafe to be more stable, but also be more prepared for future growth.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you encounter any issues, especially in relation to crashes or very slow responses.

Happy investing!

Dividend Strength Estimator
Like many others, I enjoy buying stocks that pay good dividends. The challenge is in identifying companies that will be able to pay good dividends year after year. Many might suggest reading through years of financial statements, as well as getting to know the top management and their vision for the company as it is the ideal way of projecting its future cashflow and thus, dividends. I do agree that ...

Delisting Dividends
Recently, several users have independently highlighted to me the issue of delisting dividends. What are delisting dividends? I am referring to dividends that are given when the stock is delisted, redeemed, or cancelled. These dividends usually have a dividend yield of ~100%. However, note that not all dividends with ~100% dividend yield are delisting dividends, for example: 8Telecom's capital reduction ...
