Wait for a big crash to pick our durians?

Saturday, August 26, 2017

Reader:
You have been through the times when you got stocks w div yield of 10+ or even 20%..

Why are you still keen to pick up stocks at 3-5% now?

Isn't it easier (and less work) to just wait out for the next crash to pick your durians again?

It shouldn't be too long from now right...?

Now, this was a CRASH!
Did anyone predict this?
This is what insurance is for.
It is for if a CRASH happens.

Our war chest is an insurance!


















AK:
I cannot predict what will happen. 😞

Some people have been waiting for years for a big crash.

I will keep investing but keep a war chest ready. There will always be opportunities, bear market or not.

Just have to be careful so that I don't get killed by falling durians. 😛
