The portfolio started off with $1 m in July 2010 and has grown 68%.

Terence Wong, CFA

My (very calculated) bet on the offshore and marine sector paid off, with Ezion Holdings and Nam Cheong popping up 5% and 7.5% respectively over the past week.

OSIM also did well for the second consecutive week, rising 5.6%.

With the Fed unleashing the third round of QE, investors were looking for growth oriented stocks.

My model portfolio is peppered with such stocks following a decisive switch to a more aggressive stance at the start of the quarter ( I sold off all my REITs then).

My portfolio is up 3.9% for the week, and 44% since the start of the year, beating both the STI and FSTS.

Branding Power

FJ Benjamin’s COO Douglas Benjamin must be one happy man.

Duchess Kate, who was in Singapore with hubby Prince William as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Tour, donned a RAOUL dress which quickly became the talk of the town.

The label is FJB’s in-house made-in-Singapore label, and was created by Douglas and his wife Odile (Raoul is the name of their second son).

This is probably one of the best endorsements that the brand has garnered, and I’m sure I’ll hear about it the next time I visit the management.

A dress with the same design was put up on ebay for a princely sum of S$1,000 shortly after.

If only Kate could wear some Giodarno Crew Neck Tees which I have quite a few of.

Well, normal we hear people boasting when market rises. When it crashes, the one who used to appear, suddenly disappear. After minus here, plus there a above average investor would merely make less than 10%. (Based on 20 years history)

yes. unlikely to be repeated. but one can always hope.

If you are talking about 2009 March till today. Yes I believe. Coz I made slightly less at 189%. Hey jc, bear in mind as a long term investor. This is not possible. If you are telling me 10 - 15 years annualises gain of 200%, that's a lie. Ask the whole investment community. They will tell you, that's a scam.
Just in case you are not aware, annualised means over a period of many years divided by total gain. If you make 200%/20yrs = 10%/yr only. Not forgetting after minus off all other realized losses, should be less than 10%.

my portfolio is up 200 percent since 2009

This is a short term spike. A value investor take a long term view in annualise gain. If the gain and lost over a 20 years, I believe it should be much lesser. It's not possible to sustain at 68% gain for long.Warren Buffer only managed about 14 - 15% annualises gain over 40 years. This is another reason, why making over 12% annualised gain over a 20 years period is close to not possible for even the Pros.

Congratulations , Mr Wong.

Your portfolio performance has beaten most big fund managers flat.
