Tea with AK71: A good cat.

Monday, May 10, 2010

I spent an hour or so visiting local blogs on investment and trading just now. I read the latest post in Musicwhiz's blog.  It is titled: "Why traders are important for value investing." It had 22 comments by the time I read it.  I added a diplomatic 23rd comment.

Then, I came back to my blog and found a comment (from an anonymous reader) which likened buying stocks to betting on horses, saying that we want to bet on the fastest horse. This is found in my post: "Replies from AK71: More on REITs".

People will always have opinions about anything and everything under the sun. This is one reason why interaction between people is interesting. It would be terribly boring if everyone were to have the same opinions about everything. However, there will be times when strong feelings are attached to these opinions. To verify this, we just have to see how Musicwhiz's post invited some rather strongly worded comments.

What do I think? Well, I took a leaf from the late Deng Xiaoping's book. He said that it does not matter if the cat is black or white. If it catches the rat, it is a good cat. Deng Xiaoping was a truly visionary leader. China would not be where it is today if not for him.

Chamomile tea, anybody? It's calming, I was told. Have a great week ahead!

hAHA.. that musicwhiz is at it again..
He's too rigid in his thinking and it's usually his way or the highway.

Anyway, just do your stuff and if results shows, you are correct. Who cares investors or traders. As long as you can bring in the dough, you are a good investor/trader.

Hi Wealth Journey,

I just want to be a good cat too. I am not sure what is my color. White or black? I am probably grey. ;-p

You know, sometimes, I might just be lucky and not correct! Well, if Lady Luck smiles on me, I must be correct. Oh dear. I'm getting confused. Haha... :)
