Everyone has a story to tell. We all have our own unique talents, experiences, and specialties which we can all use to help others, and bloggers are no different. Even though the subject is the same (personal finance and investing), the wisdom we share and the knowledge we can learn from each other are all unique. I’ve been following several blogs ever since I started writing, and these are some of the ones I enjoy reading. Come on and check them out! You might learn something new.
Kapag nagbabasa ka tungkol sa stocks at shares, madalas makikita mo ang mga salitang “voting rights.” Kung hindi mo pa alam kung saan at paano sila gamitin, mabuti na sumama ka sa isang stockholder meeting! Kahit iba-iba ang ginagawa ng mga kumpanya o organisasyon, mabuting basahin mo ito para malaman mo kung ano ang stockholder meeting.
Whenever you read about stocks and shares, you’ll often come across the term “voting rights.” If you’re wondering where and how you’ll use them, then you should probably join a shareholder meeting! Although every company or organization will be different, this is what you can expect.
Isang biyernes ng hapon, ipinakita sa akin ng kaibigan ko ang isang investment strategy video.
Sa simula, akala ko ito’y tungkol sa “money cost averaging,” isang epektibong technique na nagpapababa ng risk gamit ang pag-invest ng naka-set na amount ng pera ng paunti-unti. Hindi pala tungkol doon ang video na nakita ko. Gaya ng pagkaganda ng fast-food hamburger sa mga TV commercial kaysa sa totoong produkto, ang investment “system” nila ay nagpapakita ng napakagandang past performance returns (mga 20-30% ang kita). Posible nga ang ganoong kita… kung NAPAKASWERTE ka. Ang mga umaasa na PALAGING makakakuha ng ganoong kita ay mabibigo.
Sa kalagitnaan ng video patuloy ipinakita kung paano gumagana ang “system.” Kinilabutan ako noon. Nanlaki ang mata ko at napapigil hininga ako ng ilang sandali. Para akong nanonood ng commercial na nagpapainom ng pesticide bilang “health” drink.
One Friday afternoon a friend of mine sent me a video link to an investment strategy.
During the first few minutes I thought it was about money cost averaging, a proven technique for minimizing risk by investing a set amount of money over time, but it wasn’t. It was an advertisement. Like how fast-food hamburgers always look better on TV ads, the investment “system” they featured showed VERY high past performance returns (around 20-30% returns). Those returns are possible… if you’re VERY lucky. Those who expect to ALWAYS get those high returns will be disappointed.
As the video continued to how the system works, my eyes grew wide with shock, and I’m pretty sure I stopped breathing for a few moments. It was like watching an advertisement telling people to drink a bottle of pesticide as a “health” drink.
