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!

Introducing Technical Charts to SGXcafe
I have been interested in learning and integrating various approaches, namely fundamental analysis, technical analysis, portfolio management and machine learning to help myself make better investments/trades. This is the one of the reasons why SGXcafe exists. Recently, I started learning more about technical analysis through a book titled, Come into my Trading Room. I am thankful to Azrael for introducing ...

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 ...
