    I'm glad you don't say banging balls because I've sold all of my SingPost shares.

    I invested before the financial crisis in 2008 and lost $15K.

    After that I no longer invest in anything.

    I think one should look to Warren Buffett and use his strategy. 1. Invest in the people, not the company. 2. If you don't know what you're doing, it's risky no matter how sound the plan sounds.

    Of course, many people like to make it rich fast, but Warren Buffett's strategies are all long time one.

    I've since made back all the money I lost, not through investment, but through my online website. In the end, for the best return, it's always better to start your own business. Start small, grow fast.

    You are lucky that your business flourishes. Others are not so lucky. There are many businesses which failed. Therefore, doing business may not be the best return.

    Heavens, no. Temasek is run by the bestest (lolololo), smartestest, most talentest people in the universe.
    Being only the lowly-educated creep that i am, of course i can't beat them.

    But what does Temasek have to do with this?

    In other unrelated news Li Ning hands out profit warning. Yet again.

    Nobody fails forever.

    Sure, statistics say that 80-90% of businesses fail. But if you try long enough, you'll have a good chance of succeeding.

    The trick's to start small.

    Many of my friends, when I asked them if they think of starting a business, they instantly think of cost. If you think of only the cost of starting the business, then you won't even start.

    And also, business is not about luck. Nobody gets to success by luck. Even those who look like they are lucky are not. You have to put yourself in the path of luck. You don't have to believe me. Just ask anyone who has a running business and ask them about the concept of luck.

    Why look at foreign banks? Look at our own local banks - DBS, UOB and OCBC. Those who have bought them last year would have made a killing.

    Local banks got fat by making loans with low interest rates and with the property bubble.
    Now with cooling measures and with a high-end property market whose performance is the worst in the world, they better find new sources for growth for the next decade.

    And the huge chunk of non-performing loans on their balance sheets is really

    And are they still giving 3% interest to depositors? And how much is their interest from housing loans?

    Buy petroleum.

    Stockpile loads of it when the price is low.

    You'll make a killing when the price shoots up.
