Many features that you see in SGXcafe are requests made by users. I appreciate feedback and feature requests from users, and do my best to make it happen whenever possible. Therefore, if there is any feature that you wish to see in SGXcafe, feel free to let me know!

This weekend, I spent some time working on adding new columns (e.g. annualized dividends % and annualized P&L %) to current portfolio and closed positions, as requested by users.

The new columns tell you how much dividends and P&L you have made from a particular stock or transaction on an annualized basis. I believe it would be useful in at least two situations:

1) For stocks that you have held for numerous years, you will be able to see the annualized dividends % and annualized P&L % that they are generating for you.

2) Having annualized dividends % and annualized P&L % would also allow you to compare various stocks that you might have held for different amounts of time more fairly.

Some users might be overwhelmed by the increasing number of columns in the current portfolio. Please remember that you can always easily personalize the columns displayed here.

I would love to hear how this new information helps you in your investment journey.

Happy investing!

Improved Dividend Strength Estimator
In a previous article, I introduced a model which uses fundamental data to estimate Dividend Strength, P("same or more dividends next year" | "predicted to be giving same or more dividends next year"). Numerous people have shown interest in this estimation model, therefore I decided to spend more time improving its performance. Its performance have increased from AUC (Area Under ROC) of 0.65 to 0.7. ...

Play and Become A Better Investor!
As an investor, we often want to believe that we can pick stocks that can beat the market. So I made a game that allows us to test if we could actually pick stocks that can beat the market. The idea is simple: you will be given facts of an anonymous stock on a historical date. Based on the information, you will choose whether to invest or ignore that stock. Once you have made the decision, SGXcafe ...
