There exists hundreds of stocks in SGX and deciding what to buy next is not an easy task. In
part one of the "What to buy next?" article, I shared a few tools in SGXcafe designed to help me with this problem, including a new screener tool,
Screener added to SGXcafe about 3 weeks ago.
Screener was met with very positive response and high usage, and I received comments on how useful it was and requests to add more metrics. Therefore, I decided to spend more time improving it and have since doubled the number of metrics available to screen stocks from the initial 15 to current 30. I am happy to add more metrics if you have additional suggestions.
Updates: As of 7th July 2016, there are more than 40 different metrics.
I have also incorporated Screener to the daily market update email of SGXcafe. This would enable you to create a screener profile (or use the default profiles) and have its results sent straight to your inbox daily without having to perform the screening action manually everyday. Of course, you can always adjust your
email preferences if you prefer not to receive Screener updates.

And often, small deviations in assumed values influence the results ...
Can you avoid investing?
Recently, a friend of mine sent me an article about how you should create a "total portfolio" that takes your career into account as part of the portfolio. That is, if you have a stable job, you should buy risky stocks so that you would have opportunities for huge gains since you are unlikely to get large pay raises. Likewise, if you are an entrepreneur, you should hold safe bonds since your career ...
Updates: Visualization, Watchlist Limit, and Renamed Stocks
A quick update on a few tweaks around SGXcafe. One of the top feature requests recently in SGXcafe is having more visualization. Specifically, the ability to see at a glance how much dividends you receive monthly (against other years) historically and pie charts to see your portfolio's breakdown by sector, industry and companies. Feel free to suggest more if there is other information you'd like to ...
