shares?

With rising costs and increased learning needs, financing our children's education is no longer a simple walk in the park. Discuss with other parents about how they are managing their finances to cope with their expenses.

Anyone buying shares at the moment? What shares do you buy? Care to share on shares?? :evil:

Recently bought S'pore exchange. Sold it and bought Noble. Anyone else?

Was thinking of buying DBS but now trading at $13.60? For the same amount of money, I can buy more lots for other counters. So I m still thinking.

For me, I don't think will buy exp shares. I prefer to buy lots of other shares to buying only one type of exp share.

Diversify the risk is the key point, as don't know what will happen.

I used to trade in penny stocks. Small capital, not money to buy the blue chips then. Built up some money from there. Now I put my money in blue chips which generate dividends.

Would like to check sentiments. Seems like many are expecting the market to be fairly ok all the way until US Presidential elections in November. Usually those in power will do their best to prop up the economy and move nice economic figures to increase chances of re-election. So the ugly side of things will start appearing after the US elections this November, hence a bad 2013. Your views?

I am the worst market timer in the universe. So I am going to stay away from the stock market, especially with bad news from everywhere in the world...

I like US banking stocks over Singapore shares. Singapore shares moved too slowly. US on the other hand, can be very volatile and not fo rthe week hearted.

At current level, prices seems to have gone up a fair bit so i don't think I will enter the market now.
