  1. Hi Pon.
    Your “Stocks in the news” section is a winner. This is a section you should REALLY expand on, as you are giving information that puts the focus on stocks we investors should be looking at. Thanks and keep up the good work.


    • Hi Tony,

      Thanks for the comment as usual 🙂

      Any thoughts on how to expand it b/c quite simply there is a time constraint when it comes to blogging here and also just b/c a stock is mentioned in “Stocks in the News” doesn’t mean its a good investment idea. The aim is purely that in Thailand a lot of the rumours/new releases are done via the Thai language papers and not the English language papers so we felt that it would be a good addition for the English readers here.

  2. Hi Pon.
    I enjoy your site. Of course I and the other people who read this website understand that just because a stock is mentioned in your “Stock in the news” section doesn’t mean it is a good stock to invest in. We do get a negative or positive opinion from your comments and that is a good starting point for us to do some ratio and fundamental research to see if the stock matches our criteria formula for buying stock. Having a semi-simple buying formula is the key here, but you mentioning several stocks does make it easier to zero in on a stock to take a closer look at.

    • Hi Tony,

      Thanks. Just fyi we’ve begun a forum section on the site, the aim will be for readers of this site to discuss holdings there. Will post about it shortly, hope you’ll contribute 🙂
