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.

Trapped in Chennai, India
On a recent business trip to India, I was stranded in Chennai because of massive flooding everywhere, including the airport, due to the worst rains the city has seen in the recent century. I shall skip the details of who, what, when, where, why and how I was trapped and escaped, but focus instead on what I felt during my time there. The Rich vs The Poor It was Day 3 since the heavy flooding started. ...
Malaysia Bursa Stocks Now Available!
As I was working on the final phase of the HK integration, I realized that it might be better if I also had Malaysia stocks information because news agency and blogs that I wanted to index tend to have news/articles on both markets. Hence, last weekend, I switched gears and started integrating Malaysia stocks into StocksCafe as well. I am happy to share that you can look up information of Malaysia ...
Fundamental Metrics - See More, More Easily
For each listed stock in SGX, there is a profile page (e.g. DBS) that displays the valuation and financial metrics of that stock. Personally, I use it often to learn the historical and current fundamental values of the stock. However, there are limitations to it. 1) Due to space constraint, I can only display partial information. For example, for Valuation metrics, I only show 52 weeks high, low, median, ...
