13 blog posts for a sharing session on investing for income.

Saturday, October 4, 2014

I participated in a sharing session earlier today on investing for income in the local stock market. The group was made up of experienced real estate investors who are possibly interested in diversifying their passive income stream by investing in the local stock market.

So, I shared with them my little ideas regarding bonds and stocks and, to a large extent, drew upon past blog posts for this purpose. These were the ones in the notes I gave out:

1. Nobody cares more about our money than we do.

2. Perpetual bonds: Good or bad?

3. Leverage up and buy investment properties now?

4. Gear up and receive more passive income.

5. Bonds, REITs and the instant gratification of yield.

In the course of my rather long winded discourse, I also made verbal references to several other blog posts and I am listing them here for easy reference. Yes, I know it is a chore to comb my blog. I find it a bit demanding myself but thank goodness I still have a fairly good memory:

6. How should we approach REITs as investments for income now?

7. AIMS AMP Capital Industrial REIT: Making money.

8. Saizen REIT: Sell the entire portfolio or find a bigger partner.

9. A simple way to a double digit yielding portfolio.

10. Motivations and methods in investing.

11. Save 100% of your take home pay. What?

12. Recommended books for FA and TA.

13. How to be "One Up on Wall Street"?

It was invigorating as I fielded questions from participants and got to make some pocket money at the same time. :)

Hi Tom Tom Tom,

You were there yesterday too? I remember only 3 guys said they were already readers.

Were you on the left or on the right of me? It was a small group. So, I should remember. ;p

Hi Richard,

The full disguise, of course. But it was a new mask, for hygiene purposes. They are meant to be for single use anyway. LOL. ;p
