Currently, I have the following:
MPI (@3.05)
ALI (@15.96)
FPH (@54.6)
CEB (@75)
SMC (@112.5)
DGTL (@1.58)

ok po ba ang protfolio ko? Do you price target for these stocks in case you're holding any of them? Small time lang investor lang po ako and eventually gusto ko rin sana ma-try magtrade. I'll appreciate any advice you can give po. Thanks mga bossing!

on a personal note, my long term stocks arent necessarily blue chips but to answer your question, I "intend" to hold to long term stocks for the longest time until I really need to liquidate. but, i re-evaluate these stocks every year to see why I am holding on to them. So for example, I intend to hold on to a stock for 20 years, it doesnt mean I will stick to it blindly for 20 years, I will still have to assess my reasons for holding it. If I dont "see" that it will grow or appreciate in value, I will have to let go.

Trading Bias: Long term with some swinging
PD for Long Term: MPI, ALI, BDO and mining

here is my question:
IS it advisable for me to even start investing?

What's your opinion about BPITRADE?


Thanks for the time and hoping to be with you for a loooooooooong time

Hi erds,
im also a newbie here. just wanna share to you na aside from COL and BPITRADE, meron din ang MetroBank w/c is First metro. In my case, hindi rin ako kagad naka pag open ng COL account because mejo mabigat ang 5K tapos gusto ko na rin nun mag start sa stocks. So kaka search ko online nalaman ko na pwede pala akong gumamit ng first metro as long as naka MetroBank Direct ako (yung payroll kasi namin link sa MBT).
Hindi ko na kelangan mag-ipon ng 25K just to open an account with 1stMetro. Honestly, P100 pesos lang ang laman nun ng ATM ko tapos nakagamit nako ako ng features nila. Pa-browse2x, kunwari mag popost ng bid eh insufficient funds naman.Smile So lalo akong na-engganyo na mag invest sa stocks every payday kasi madali nalang nga. Google mo nalang ang site ng FirstMetro if gusto mong subukan. Meron din silang 1 week trial para ma try yung mga features nila. Kung hindi naman sa MetroBank ang payroll niyo, pwede ka rin mag-open ng ATM na 2K then i-apply mo yung account mo to MetroBank DIrect.
Between bpitrade and 1stmetro kasi, IMO and based na rin sa feedback ng mga kakila kong gumagamit ng bpi, mejo hindi pa updated yung features nila. Tama rin si sir EP mas okay talaga ang COL features esp for newbies. Maganda kasi yung mga tools niya. So kung nakaipon kana, you may consider to open another account with COL naman.

KUdos to you, erds! kasi @ 24 naisipan mo na mag-invest. Ako im already 32 at ngaun lang ako nakapag start.
i want also my kids to start early sa investing para hindi sayang ang time.

God bless and Good luck to you!!

Thanks Guys for the Reply...
@boss Olie- Thank you for welcoming me here looking forward to learn from you.
@Camnice- Thank you for the advice halos lahat ng trial na try ko na Firts Metro, COL, BPI Trade, Philstock, i even have an account sa PSE STG na may tubo nang 10k hehehe but i choose BPI because of the most lowest amount in starting an account for only 200pesos may savings account na ako and wala ring payment for BPI trade, ok lang din kahit hindi masyado sila updated, compare sa iba na opo napakaganda ng interface nila specially First metro,
I choose BPI for low maintaning ADP na 500
monthly i can put any amount to my account and buy
and i can easily withdraw any account and transfer it to my atm saving
budget here is my concern kasi gusto ko a magstart as early as possible kahit medyo limited ang budget.

ika ng sa movie na GAFLA "The greatest risk is not taking at all"

And by the way nabasa ko narin po yung "HOW I THOUGHT MY MADE INVEST IN THE STOCK MARKET" by Bo Sanchez

That was the book inspired me to invest early

Thanks for the support mga Boss

best advice mag seminar muna kayo. mahirap yung walang alam. lalo na pag asayo na ung tools tapos tataya ka nalng. wag na wag niyong gagawin yun. ubos pera niyo. libre naman seminar sa COL.

ang daming mistakes ng mga newbies (tulad ko Big Grin). kaya nga minsan inaadvice din na kung wala kang time matuto wag ka nalang mag stock market, mauubos lang pera mo. mas mainam pa magsave nalang.

I think you are already on the right track. Big Grin

Since you plan to be a long term investor, indeed, cost averaging is good for you. (check your thread, I have answered some questions there).

Just pick a stock (company) that you believe is stable and will grow in the long run. "Do you think this company will still be around and be earning in 5 years? 10? 20?"

If you are still having problems on choosing a company (no time to study), you can enjoy the benefits of diversification through Mutual Funds/UITF (Equity). These are funds that are also basically invested on the stock market, in which financial managers do the investing (like picking stocks) for you. Like a stock, it has its own price (called NAVPS or Net Asset Value per Share). You can apply cost averaging through it.

But, if there is one company that you are really confident and comfortable with, then go and invest on that one stock. Big Grin
I'm not sure with BPI Trade, but like for Citiseconline, they give out stock recommendations fit for cost averaging.
