    Good for you, bro.
    If you dont mind not buying them back, then can Boh Chup.
    But if buying back is pivotol to your Master Plan for 2018, then you need to stay vigilant.
    She will be reporting results this month. No dividend though.
    Next reporting in May then got dividend - should be the same as last year ... 10.7 cts....XD in late Juy/early Aug.
    If SingTel Board wants to save the stock from falling... very simple - make an announcement to the market that
    to reward shareholders for their unyielding suckport...Simi Lan Simi Kwee Boon Ho suka they say also can one...
    announce that the company will pay an additional 5 cts dividend in May over and above the normal dividend of 10.7 cts.
    Lidat hor... she sure CHEONG one. Coz with that extra 5 cts...at 3.52, her yield will shoot up to 6.39%.

    The 4 Musketeers...

    I think whilst waiting for them to find their FEB LOWs, there may be room to chicken run them.
    Suntec is one lightning fast chicken. Whenever she dips by alot intraday, she tends to rebound.

    The "go to $4.00" thingy... I suppose so... in time. But when... dunno.
    But meantime, her lethargy is breaking lots of hearts and converting hopeful investors into weak hands.
    Having said that, I am comforted to see that her buyers at 3.54 outnumber sellers at 3.55 by more than 2 to 1.

    SingTel...

    She pays 17.5 cts dividend per year.
    At 3.54........yield is 4.9435%.
    At 3.50.... her yield will be 5%.
    And I think from a fund manager's point of view, a 5% yield is decent.

    This fellow... yesterday she touched her 50-ema and rebounded from there.
    Last nite, I studied her chart.
    I think she will bounce to above her 20-ema and then stalls there.
    After that come down again to Hi-5 with her 50-ema.
    Coz its far too early for her to do an UP UP & AWAY now.
    Look at the centre part of the chart in mid to end Oct 2017 and you will see her doing the UP DOWN UP DOWN thing
    previously before going down to say hello to her 200-ema. So timeline wise, assuming she bottoms out some time in
    mid-Feb to end-Feb, there is enough time for her to do this I Mai I Mai throw tantrum thingy.

    This Wilmar hor... safer to buy if there is a quick dip to 3.13 region.
    Last 2 days there was buying at 3.23 to 3.25 but no follow thru. It died.

    To be a successful trader, we must GO WHERE THE MONEY IS.
    When we are stuck in a counter... if there is still a reasonable hope of the tide returning in our favour, LOON on.
    To ADD MORE to that position or not..........it depends. Like in the case of SingTel... in my view, not prudent to add.
    Unless the monkey comes back and he is buying aggressively and his footprints are all over the place.
    If the stocks we are stuck in... macam like quite hopeless ler... then do the needful to unstuck yourself.
    Be mindful of daily interest charges for each extra day you keep a hopeless position.
    And if it is a SHORT position and the stock pays good dividend, be mindful you need to pay that dividend.
    And borrowing costs for your SHORT position on top of daily interest charges.
    Remember guys - to do well in this game, we must GO WHERE THE MONEY IS.
    Meaning... trade the stocks that move. UP or DOWN, it doesnt matter. So long as it moves.
    Stocks which have no volatility... we cant make money out of them.

    SingTel...

    I have 129000 commandos stuck in SingTel - long term prisoners of war.
    Some of them coming to a year... position was opened on 21 Mar 2017.
    I had another 250,000 commandos in her to mount a Search & Rescue Mission.
    But the mission failed due to overwhelming superior firepower of the Bear Army.
    Hence I ordered the Rescue Mission Squad to abort and return to base.
    My consolation is they came back with 2900 eggs. So the failed mission wasnt altogether a failure, as such.
    After these 250,000 commandos came home, I have been sending them out to queue at 3.59 at
    first and then at 3.60 first thing in the morn when pre-opening starts. They were never filled. And
    then something hit me. This has everything to do with Money Management. I told myself...this
    fellow is sick. She doesnt look like she is going anywhere anytime soon. For some reason, the
    monkeys are not coming back to her. The monkeys are still there alright. But they are not buying
    her. For now. Perhaps its a mindset change thingy. Perhaps there is a change in the monkey's
    Master Plan not to invest in telcos for now. This wont be forever. But how long will monkeys stay
    away...that...we dont know. It may well be for half a year? Or even the whole of this year. Then how?

    So as part of Money Management, I told myself - I shouldnt commit another 250,000 troops to fight this battle.
    Becoz instead of having 129,000 prisoners of war sitting idle in Bear prison camps, I will have 379,000 POWs.
    I should maintain status quo for the 129,000 POWs and hope that in time, they can rescue themselves. Meantime
    they will live off the dividends. For these 129,000 POWs, I will be happy to just break even or take a small loss.
    And I should redeploy those 250,000 troops to fight other battles which offer better prospects. Like the REITs.

    Good thing I stopped queueing for 250 lots at 3.60. Otherwise, at 3.54 now, they will be sitting on a paper loss of 15k.
