Out of the several hundred stocks listed in SGX, how do you choose which one to buy? Use value investing to find the undervalued stocks? Find stocks with huge growth potential? Find income stocks that would give high and stable dividends for many years to come? Or...?
Everyone has their own school of thought (e.g. Value investing, Growth investing, Income investing, etc) for choosing what stock to buy. And of course, different schools of thought would use different metrics to find that best stock.
Value investors would use ratios such as low price-to-earnings (P/E) and price-to-book (P/B) to find undervalued stocks;
growth investors would try to find stocks that are growing faster than the market using metrics such as P/E-to-Growth (PEG) and Return on Capital, while
income investors would be more interested in dividend yield and stable prices historically (e.g. low value at risk). And, even within the same school of thought, people are likely to focus on slightly different metrics to find his/her best stock to buy.
I am happy to share that
iScreener is now available again after the
data switch. Together with it is a
comparator that allows you to compare up to six different stocks side by side.
You can now use these tools in SGXcafe to rank or compare stocks based on metrics that matter to you easily. I have created three profiles for reference, namely
John Neff, Growth Profile, and Value Profile. By the way, all profiles you create will only be seen by you but since many users in SGXcafe are generous and enjoy sharing (as can be seen by the many
shared portfolios), I might add the ability to share your created profile in future. Let me know if you are really keen on this sharing function.
p.s.: You can now also see iScreener profiles in companies' summary pages (e.g.
DBS). And if you create your own profiles, the default profiles will be replaced by yours accordingly.

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 ...
How "unlucky" can you get from investing?
Investing in the stock market is often deemed as risky and difficult by many. Here, I would show how a simple strategy would perform for a someone who does not know much about the stock market and is very unlucky when it comes to investing. Firstly, for someone without much knowledge in investing, index investing is ideal because it gives good diversification with just one stock. Also, rather than ...
Close Price vs Last Traded Price
All along, I have naively displayed "Last Traded Price" and used it for all computations in StocksCafe without much consideration. That is until recently, when a user brought to my attention the difference between "Last Traded Price" and "Close Price". This led me to spend time learning about it and ultimately switch to using "Close Price" in StocksCafe instead. Close Price vs Last Traded Price Most ...
