By evankoh posted on 15 Mar 2015  -  5,210 views


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.

For example, if high P/E stocks actually do grow at a rate that is significantly higher than low P/E stocks, then it is arguably justifiable to buy stocks with a high P/E. One real-life ...

How "unlucky" can you get from investing?
Investing in the stock market is often deemed as risky and difficult by many.

Portfolio Sharing 2.0
Initially, the portfolio sharing feature was added with the intention to allow SGXcafe users to easily share their portfolios on their own blogs as I saw many financial bloggers in Singapore sharing their well-crafted portfolios but in a technically-inefficient way (e.g. copy and paste from excel sheet to html). Interestingly, this feature is gaining popularity in SGXcafe itself, especially after the ...
