When I started investing in Singapore stocks, I could not find any website that allows me to freely and easily access simple information regarding Singapore stocks or maintain my portfolio of Singapore stocks. Therefore, I decided to create SGXcafe to help myself and anyone else who faces the same predicament as me.

There are currently two main ways you can use SGXcafe:

1) To gather information
I organize information around a particular company. That is, if you go into a particular company page, for example, (e.g. DBS), you will be able to access all the information that SGXcafe has on that company.

I also created a few overview pages where you can get an overview of certain information for the entire Singapore market such as the Dividends overview page which tells you upcoming dividends by various companies. I even created a screener function for you to find companies that fit certain conditions you may have.

2) Manage your portfolio
Sign up for free to start managing your portfolio in SGXcafe. Besides computing the standard metrics for your portfolio such as P&L, beta and cost breakdown, etc., I also provide the upcoming dividends for your portfolio of stocks as well as how much dividends you would have cumulatively collected right from the time you first bought the stocks. Lastly, you can also add stocks you are interested in to the watchlist to keep an eye on them.

I would be more than happy to hear how you are using SGXcafe or what new functions you wish SGXcafe had so as to better support you in making investment decisions. Please feel free to contact me via the feedback form.

Review of My First Year Investing in SGX
Although 2015 is not my first year investing in the stock market, it is my first time investing in the Singapore market. Previously, I was focusing on the US market mainly due to two reasons: 1) The minimum to invest in many of the Singapore companies was relatively high (compared to the US) due to the minimum purchase of 1000 shares. I was a poor student then hence this was a fairly big deterrent. ...

Infrastructure Improvements
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 ...

We are now StocksCafe!
Over the weekend, I have successfully migrated everything to the new domain, stocks.cafe, with upgraded software and hardware. However, the migration over the weekend did not proceed as smooth as I had hoped. Everything that could go wrong went wrong. On hindsight, I should not have tried to upgrade everything at the same time. There were numerous bugs and errors that I had to fix throughout the weekend. ...
