Mahilig ako mag-shopping. Pero I’m not the type who’d go for clothes, bags, and shoes. Pwede pa siguro nung single ako, gel pens and notebooks, and even books! Not until about 10 years ago, medyo nagbago na yung sale event na gusto ko.
Nagtransition na din ako to Supermarket sale events. But actually, my most favorite is the Stock Market sale. Ahehe!
I used to be a Financial Advisor for Sunlife. I used to advise people to get insurance policies and invest in mutual funds. I have an account in COL Financial din for stock investments. Meron din ako insurance policies and mutual funds, and accounts na joint with my husband.
But somehow, I realized, hindi talaga ako pambenta ng mga financial products. Pang-turo or advise lang ako on personal finance. The practical side, not the technical side.
The market closed at 5,928.45.. If I’m not mistaken, last year it got to around 8k. Honestly, I forgot na how to explain this. Pero, for an investor, this has good implications.
Ibig sabihin, yung value ng mga stocks ngayon, mababa. Mas mura sila if buyer ka. Mas lugi ka if seller ka. And if long-term investor ka, hindi ka masyado magbebenta now. Mas bibili ka pa kamo, para bumaba yung average price ng stocks na hawak mo.
Kumbaga, halimbawa, dati, yung P5000 mo, makakabili ka ng 50 na stocks at P100 each. Ngayon, kung P50 nalang, eh di 100 yung nabili mo. To put it in a practical sense.
Ayun, so magandang sale event ito!
For guidance, para sa mga first time and really clueless investors, I would recomment “My Maid Invests in the Stock Market” by Bo Sanchez. It laid out in super simple and understandable terms yung kung paano magstart mag-invest sa stock market.
Eventually, you’d enjoy reading Robert Kiyosaki, Warren Buffett, and even those by Randell Tiongson and Marvin Germo. Madami pa actually!
Para naman makita ninyo yung impact ng stocks, pwede nyo panuorin yung movies na “The Big Short” at “Wolf of Wall Street.” Kahit nga sa Itaewon Class, medyo napasadahan yung investments.
Tulad ng kahit anung shopping event, minsan, kakaaddik din ang mag-invest. Pero gaya din ng mga smart purchases natin, need din pag-aralan yung mga companies na gusto mong pagbilhan ng stocks.
Ayun, happy shopping!
