Ten Investment Advice for the Newbie Investor

This post was inspired by the Reader question below:

Hi Filipino Investor Admin,

I'm John and I happen to come across your blog. I got interested with investing in the stock market a month ago and I can't help but read and learn everything I can. The thing is I am in Qatar working. I started saving enough to start my investments. Any advise you can give? More powers!

Regards, John

Hi John,

Thank you for query. I think a lot of new guys to investing have the same questions. Having this said. I'll answer your question through a blog post (and here it is. Haha).

The following are more of a general rule of thumb that I followed in the last 4 years of investing the PSE and it has served me relatively well. I hope you learn something valuable in one of them.

Top Twenty Five (25) Cheapest Stocks in the Philippines as of 14-Oct-14

The "Top 25 Cheapest Stocks in the Philippines" is a monthly publication to give Filipino Investors a sense on what are the cheapest stocks at the current market prices. 

This will be particularly useful to value investors a.k.a those investors who like to buy companies whose current market price is selling cheap relative to quantifiable metrics such as earnings, sales, book value, dividend etc.

We would like to remind the readers of this website to do due diligence before investing specially on the more iliquid names. Cheers and enjoy!

1. P/E, EV/EBITDA, P/B, P/S were arranged from lowest to highest (lower the numbers means they are cheaper)

2. DY was arranged from highest to lowest (higher numbers are better/cheaper)

3. Data as of 14-Oct-14

"Dividend Ex-Date" is the actual ex-date already announced by the company.
