Free stocks update with video tutorials

Got this video from one of my friends in Facebook showing the latest stocks update from the TrulyRichClub where a sell alert was sent for BPI yesterday.  This video also discusses the “off-hours” order feature of COL Financial trading platform where you can sell your shares ATO (at the opening).  Enjoy!

Stocks Update: I’m Sticking My Neck Out So That You Can Grow Your Money

This is the latest stocks update from brother Bo.  The new SAM table shows that the target price for SMPH was increased from 16 to 16.65 and its “buy below” price is adjusted to 14.48.  This allows us space to buy shares of this company from its closing price of 13.8 per share last Friday.

From his message below, bother Bo discusses that in investing, there is always risk.  I also believe that “not investing is more risky” because inflation eats our money and slowly evaporates in the bank.  This is guaranteed year after year.  In SAM, this risk is minimized by investing only in giant companies.

The other day, a very concerned friend talked to me, “Brother Bo, can I ask you something? It’s rather serious.”

“Sure,” I said.

“I’m really scared for you….”

“How come?” I asked.

“Aren’t you worried when you suggest to your members what companies to buy in the stock market?”

“Why?”

“Well, what if one of your recommendations turn out to be a flop? And your faithful followers lose their money. Then they’ll get angry at you and blame you for their losses. Because you’re a preacher and spiritual leader, won’t that affect your reputation?”

I smiled. “Thanks for your concern. I’ve thought about it a lot, actually. I’ve counted the cost.

I’ve long accepted the fact that in life, there’s always risk—no matter how small. Waking up in the morning is a risk. Walking out the door is a risk. Even inhaling oxygen is a risk. In this world, there is no such thing as zero risk. If a person won’t take risks, he’ll remain stagnant. We can’t erase risks but we can MINIMIZE them. And I minimize it by recommending only gigantic companies and never penny stocks. I also recommend that people invest in many gigantic companies—about 5 to 10—so that even if one fails, they’ll be okay. Finally, we don’t trade but invest, using an investment program called SAM or Strategic Averaging Method.”

“Fair enough,” my friend said. “So you’re betting your reputation that these stocks will grow?”

“My members’ welfare is more important than my reputation. I’m taking this risk because I want to help people build a retirement fund for their future. So that they grow old rich, not poor. I’ve long realized that if I don’t recommend specific stocksto my members, they won’t buy. They’ll freeze. And that will be a greater disaster—because people will grow old poor.”

“So you’re really convinced that your recommended stocks will go up in the next 20 years?”

“Yes, I do. But by your question, I realize that you still don’t get SAM. Here’s the fantastic thing about SAM… Even if the stocks don’t go up in the next 20 years, but just go bounce up and down—if my members invest EVERY MONTH during those 20 years—they’ll still earn.”

“Okay Bo. I get you. Where do I sign up for your TrulyRichClub?”

“Not so fast,” I grinned. “I have a very important question for you. Will you get angry at me if one of my recommended stocks turns out to be a flop?”

He laughed. “I guess there are things beyond your control…”

“Just like you, my TrulyRichClub members are intelligent people. They know that. They know I can’t guarantee that 100 percent of my recommendations will do spectacularly well in 20 years. But the chances are exceedingly high that MOST of my recommended stocks will make them wealthy.”

After talking with him, I realized I didn’t mention a very important point to him on why I believe our risks are small: In the last 12 months, only seven out of 47 national stock markets around the world have posted gains.

That’s how bad the global economy is. But out of those seven stock markets, the Philippine Stock Market is number 1.

We’re the best performing stock market in the world today. Can you believe that? The momentum is on our side. We’re experiencing a “high tide” here—and as you know—a high tide lifts all boats (great companies).

So keep investing, my friend.

May your dreams come true,

Stocks Update: Don’t Buy and Hold – Do the SAM!

Join the Truly Rich Club

Yesterday, Bo Sanchez sent this stocks update that talks about “buy and hold” strategy which most people is doing even some of the TrulyRichClub members.  I’ve done this strategy before SAM comes in last year when I decided to sell those stocks I’ve been holding for a while like Manila Water (MWC), SMDC and Jollibee (JFC).  I have no regrets at all specially when I checked my portfolio last week and compared it with the total amount I deposited to my COL account.  I’m surprised it already earned around 26% including all the dividends which I re-invested.  In this issue of stocks update, Bro. Bo continues to inspire us to be faithful to our SAM stocks and avoid the “buy and hold” strategy.  Let’s be focused and consistent to our SAM investments!

Yesterday, I got alarmed when I bumped into a TrulyRichClub member.
I was walking in the mall when a young woman greeted me. She said, “Brother Bo! Thank you so much for building the TrulyRichClub. You’ve helped me so much.”
“So have you started your investment program?” I asked.
“Yes!” she said, “I put all my savings in the stock market. It’s not much. Just P200,000.”
“And do you invest every month from your monthly paycheck?” I asked, guessing that she had a job. (Her office uniform gave her away.)
“Sorry, Brother Bo,” she said sheepishly, “I don’t have the discipline yet. I know I should, but I’ve been postponing… I shop too much!” she giggled.
I held her arm and said, “Then you’re not doing SAM…” I said as gently as I could, “You’re doing a buy and-hold.”
“But I put my P200,000 in your SAM stocks. FPH, BPI, EDC…”bo-sanchez-sam-stocks
“Right stocks, wrong strategy.”
“Is it really bad?”
“No, it isn’t. Buy-and-hold is okaaaay….but you’re not earning as much as you should. How is the original P200,000 you put in?”
“It’s gone up a little. But you’re right, not much… But at least, I’m very happy that my money is far away from me. That’s what I’m thankful for. So I don’t spend it on shopping!”
I smiled, “Imagine if you were doing a monthly investment—even if it’s just a small amount from your monthly paycheck each month—it would be much bigger today.”
“I know, Brother Bo. Aw, meeting you today isn’t a coincidence. God is really telling me to be more disciplined!”
Lesson: If you’re a TrulyRichClub member and you see me walking in a mall, don’t be ashamed to greet me! It may be God telling you to be more faithful to your investment program.
Don’t do a buy-and-hold. Anyone can do that.
Do SAM. No matter how small, add to your original amount every month!
My last argument against buy-and-hold: It’s
TOO inconsistent. Can you grow anything in life inconsistently? No, you can’t.
You can’t maintain a healthy body inconsistently. You need to exercise and eat the right food consistently.
You can’t maintain a marriage inconsistently. You need to serve your spouse and communicate consistently.
Should I go on? You can’t raise your kids inconsistently. You can’t grow in your spiritual life inconsistently.
Shucks, you can’t even be really good at Angry Birds inconsistently.
If you want to grow in ANYTHING, you’ve got to be in the thick of things, slugging it out consistently.
To grow your investments, you’ve got to put in your little amounts of money consistently as well.

Happy investing!

May your dreams come true,
Bo Sanchez

Stocks Update: What You’re Doing Now Is the Best Way to Build Your Wealth

A fresh stocks update from Bro. Bo.  As you notice, it’s getting hard to buy stocks nowadays because we saw them cheap 2-3 weeks ago.  I hope to see more “sale” in the stock market, but as long as our stocks are still “buyable” and haven’t crossed the “buy below price” we can still buy them.  Below is the latest stocks update.

My goal for this issue is to give YOU peace of mind that you’re doing the right thing. Investing in the stock market is the BEST way in building your wealth.
And you don’t have to take my word for it.
Believe Jeremy Siegel, a Wharton Professor from the University of Pennsylvania. He studied various investments choices—specifically stocks, bonds, treasury bills, and gold—spanning more than 200 years.
Imagine that in 1802, you had $4. And you decide to divide your $4 to four asset classes and invest $1 in gold, $1 in treasury bills, $1 in bonds, and $1 in stocks. How much will you have in 2006, 240 years later?

Your $1 in gold would be worth $32.84.
Your $1 in treasury bills would be worth to $5,061.
Your $1 in bonds would be worth $18,235.
Your $1 in stocks would be worth $12.7 million!
The difference is HUGE.

 

Always Go long-term

 

Obviously, you won’t last for 200 years. (Although I hear that it’s possible that our grandchildren may live that long, thanks to advances in genetic medicine.)
But by using “200 years”, Jeremy Siegel is telling us, “When it comes to the stock market, go long-term!”
A friendly reminder from your Financial Coach: Don’t withdraw your money from your stock market account to buy gadgets, clothes, or vacations. Even when I tell you to sell a company because it hit our Target Price—simply transfer the money by buying a new stock. In other words, you’re merely switching stocks. That way, you are always FULLY invested.
If you follow this simple rule, your retirement fund will grow tremendously.
Aren’t you happy to know you’re investing in the best asset class in the world?

May your dreams come true,

Bo Sanchez

Stocks Update: Our Stocks to Go Sideways

The latest issue of Bo’s stocks update.  Another great news as our favorites stocks will go sideways and more opportunity to buy cheaper.  Keep investing folks!
Join the Truly Rich Club

The US,Europe, and China Stock Markets have gone down a lot. And for the past decade, Japan has really never recovered.

But the Philippine Stock Market hasn’t gone down like the rest of the world. Why? Our economy is simply doing so much better today.

But because of this, our stocks are now more expensive compared to the rest of the world. Because the foreign fund managers earned money here, they’re selling their stocks in the Philippines and sending their money over to the US and China to buy depressed stocks there.bo-sanchez-stocks-2012

Result?  The Philippine Stock Market will go sideways for a longer period of time than we expected. In our last issue, I mentioned that perhaps our stocks would start inching their way up next week.

We’re now seeing that may not happen, after all. We now believe that there will be a delay.

As a long-term investor, this delay is beautiful. It will be very useful for you because you can keep buying our favorite stocks at cheaper prices.

Don’t be afraid. Your “numbers” maybe negative right now. That’s okay! Trust the incredible system we’re using. Buying regularly when our favorite stocks are down or sideways will be the reason why you’ll have MILLIONS in the future!

May your dreams come true,

Bo Sanchez

Stocks Update: You Can Sleep in Any Storm

Below is the latest stocks update from Bro. Bo.  This is just an excerpt to keep you informed and inspired because the market is down nowadays but actually,  its “shopping time”.  My main concern is, payday is still a week away.  Hopefully next week this market condition is still the same or maybe even lower than today so we can buy more cheaper SAM stocks at discounted prices.   Happy investing!

I started investing in the stock market in 2007.
You can imagine how catastrophic that was for me. Because in 2008, the biggest economic storm hit the world. It was so big, many economists compared the 2008 Recession to the 1923 Great Depression! Meaning: The last time the economy was that bad was 90 years ago.
And my stocks showed it: My stocks were down by 40 percent.
Ugh. I remember I had around P3 million in the stock market. It whittled down to P1.8 million. On “paper” (or on my computer screen), I lost P1.2 million! If it wasn’t for my faith, I bet that would have been enough to give me a full-blown depression.
Thankfully, I also had wise mentors who looked me in the eye and said, “Bo, that’s nothing! Forget about it. Keep buying. Now!”
I did. And one year later, in 2009, BOOM! The stock market soared by 100 percent.
Every time there’s a dip in the stock market (like what we’re experiencing now), I like telling this story.
If you feel depressed every time you open your Citiseconline page because of all the negative numbers you see in your portfolio, relax. Take it easy. You’re okay. Just keep buying.
In a month or two, the stock market will turn around and start going up again.
Unless, of course, another crisis pops up.
Like if the China-Philippine tension escalates, that will be a crisis—and the stock market will plunge.
Or if the Corona case explodes into political mayhem, that will be a crisis too—and the stock market will plunge.
As long-term investors, we LOVE crisis. Because we can buy great companies at cheap prices.
So either way, up or down, we’re good.
Remember the Bible story of how the apostles were panicking in the boat when a storm hit them, but Jesus was sleeping in the boat? That’s what we need to learn to do. We need to be like Jesus. We need to learn how to sleep in the storm.

May your dreams come true,

Bo Sanchez

Stocks Update: SAM Stocks Are Still Doing Well

Below is the latest stocks update from Bo.  JGS Target Price has been raised/upgraded.
52 Healing Habits Program of Bro Bo Sanchez

Your SAM (Strategic Averaging Method) Stocks are doing very well. Even sleepy EDC (Energy Development Company) is slowly going up, finally! (If you started investing early last year, you’d have already put a hefty sum of money in EDC—as I have).

JGS (JG Summit) pleasantly surprised us by hitting almost its Target Price last week. After consulting with our Analysts, we’re raising the Target Price to P40. You may however take some profits off the table if you wish.

But as I mentioned in my last article, there may be a slightly downward or sideways movement in the short-term—for the entire stock market. We expect this and we’re happy if that happens, so that we can buy our favorite stocks at lower prices.

Happy investing, my friend!

May your dreams come true,
Bo Sanchez

Stocks Update: We’re Champion Turtles

My new book on the stock market is out, The Turtle Always Wins.

Grab a copy at your nearest bookstore.

I pray that through the coming years, you learn to be an expert Turtle. A very wealthy expert Turtle!

Let me now tell you what to expect in the near future…

Our Favorite Stocks Will Catch Its Breath

Here’s our fearless forecast: In the next few months, we’ll see the stock market go down a little. We know it cannot sustain the amazing growth we’ve experienced since the start of 2012.

Imagine a mountain hiker. After zipping up the trails at breakneck speed, he’s now sitting on a rock, catching his breath. He’s drinking from his water bottle. He’s resting his aching muscles.

He’s regaining his strength for the next climb up the mountain.

That is what is happening to our favorite stocks.

It will go lower for awhile.

But no need to panic. It’s just regaining its strength to climb another lap.

Today, traders are worried at this sad news, because they don’t know what to do. We however are SAM investors. We like this sad news. We put our feet up and sip our orange juice.

We’re happy that some of our stocks will dip into negative territory. Because we’ll be buying at cheaper prices. We’re champion Turtles.

Please continue to buy your SAM Stocks each month.

Happy investing!

May your dreams come true,

Bo Sanchez

Keep an Eye on Buy Below Prices

Stocks Update: Mr. Market Is Manic-Depressive

You probably know Warren Buffet—the 2nd wealthiest man in the world. He grew his money by investing in the stock market.

But you may not know Benjamin Graham. When Warren Buffet was a young chap, Benjamin Graham was his mentor in the stock market. Pretty cool, huh?

What did Buffet learn from Graham?

That the stock market has a psychological problem. More specifically, he is manic-depressive. When Mr. Market is depressed, he sells the business at dirt-cheap prices. When he is happy, he buys the business at sky-high prices.

If you understand this, then you’ll disregard the ups and downs of the stock market. You’ll instead focus on buying great companies that will last for the next 50 years.  Like all the companies in our SAM list.

Every month, just keep buying. When a stock hits the Target Price, sell and buy another stock that’s still cheap. That’s our simple strategy that will make you a millionaire.

May your dreams come true,

Bo Sanchez

P.S. A Little Comment About NIKL (NickelAsia):

After NIKL’s price shot up last week (due to Indonesia’s ban on nickel export), I told you to sell NIKL and take your profits off the table. I also told you to buy MEG (Megaworld) and our other recommended stocks. But last Tuesday, NIKL went up even more. So yes, we missed that added uptick. But that’s okay! We never regret if we don’t squeeze out the last centavo of a stock. In fact, that attitude is dangerous. We always try to leave early. This is the safer route.

As we expand our SAM list, I’d just like to give you a friendly reminder…

“Don’t Listen to the Noise”

The difference between a successful stock investor and an unsuccessful stock investor is this: The unsuccessful stock investor is preoccupied with the market—its ups and its downs. The successful stock investor is focused on fantastic companies.  Warren Buffett, the greatest stock market investor in the world, said that if they closed the stock market for five years, it wouldn’t bother him. Why? Because the ups and downs of the market is noise to him. He doesn’t care about it. He invests in growing businesses, period.  Not the stock market.  The key?  To invest each month in fantastic stocks.  That’s why Warren Buffett’s investment horizon is 10 years to forever.

For example, when CEB, EDC, and FPH dropped almost 10 percent, that was noise. Peter Lynch, another legendary stock market guru,said: “The key to getting rich in stocks is not getting scared out of them.”

Out of the 10 companies we’re recommending, some companies are like eagles flying high today, such as ALI, MBT, BPI, NIKL. (We predict they’ll go higher.)
Some companies are horses that are galloping nicely, like CEB and SMPH.  Some companies are turtles crawling in the mud, like JGS, AP, EDC, and FPH. We believe that they’ll have their day to shine. We just don’t know when.  But all that is noise. They’re eagles, horses, and turtles now. In the future, they might be exchanging places.  So if you have the money, invest in all of them. Or buy five this month and buy the other five next month.
If your investible funds each month are smaller, then buy two or three different companies each month.
Which should you buy now?
If you’ve been doing SAM for some time, I suggest you buy some or all of our new recommended companies: BPI, NIKL, JGS, and SMPH.
My other suggestion? Block out the noise.
Remember:  Becoming wealthy is simpler than you think.

Happy investing!

May your dreams come true,
Bo Sanchez
