I am happy to share that I have created a
forum for StocksCafe. This forum will replace the Cafe feature in StocksCafe where users would post questions and start discussions.
Why replace the Cafe feature?
As the number of features in StocksCafe continue to grow, I am having a hard time maintaining all of them. Therefore, I have decided to "slim down" StocksCafe and maintain as little features myself as possible. This new forum is based on an open source software hence I literally got it for free rather than having to code out every single feature myself.
Also, it comes with all the standard features needed to run a forum. You can now receive badges, start private conversations with several users, set a profile photo and many more. It is certainly an upgraded version of the previous
What about the previous content in Cafe?
I have already migrated many content over to either the
new Forum or
Blogs depending on the content type.
However, I would still need you to help me migrate some of your own content over, as the Cafe will be completely removed at the end of October and any content not migrated over will be lost. Please check
this link for any past content that you might have posted in Cafe and help me migrate them over (it's just a simple copy and paste). Thanks!
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have questions.

However, the truth is StocksCafe is very dependent on donations as the ad revenue sustains only about 35-45% of current operating costs of StocksCafe. I have been thinking of ...
The Story of the Broken Email - "Thanks" to DigitalOcean
I would like to apologize for the email outage for the last three days. I have finally fixed the issue. All emails should be operating as usual from now on. Below is the reason why I had to manually activate accounts for new sign ups and why no daily market update emails were sent. The Short Version - My hosting provider, DigitalOcean, decided to block my SMTP port (needed for sending email) without ...
My investment strategy
I generally prefer a buy and hold approach. It is because I view shares of companies as entitlement to profits, and profits of good companies would only increase over time even if their short-term share price fluctuates. Also, capital gain is not recurring income whereas dividend gain is, and the latter is important to me since I am investing to retire. Of course, the question would be how to differentiate ...
