A Byte of my 2.2-lb Brain

Just sharing stuff…

The year that was

Happy New Year, everyone!

 PSEi2012

On December 28, 2012, our index gained 17.84 points, closing at 5,812.73. The year 2012 had been such a good year for our market, finishing with a bang! and escalating by approximately 33 percent! This was also the year when we saw our index hammered back-to-back new record highs—38 times YTD, to be exact. I am so amazed to see how our market has performed since the beginning of 2009 (see beautiful chart below).

Alas, my 2012 portfolio was not able to beat the performance of the market significantly, as I was too busy preying on some Mining and Oil stocks. Also, I  wasn’t really able to follow the market closely (as much as I wanted to), lame excuse, I know. Pffft. Anyway, I was really expecting some of my holdings (oil & mining) to skyrocket; unfortunately, the PH admin was not so affable to the MO industry. Lessons have definitely been learnt. 🙂 In 2013, I hope to diversify some more, in terms of sectoral play; hopefully, to also get more exposure to some more index stocks.

Off the top of my head, below are my two wishes for our market this year:

  1. More PPP projects coming into fruition
  2. More mining industry-friendly administration

How about you, what’s your wish for the PSE this 2013? 😉

    You’re welcome! Happy New Year. Maybe the Year of the Snake will bode well for your mining and oil stocks. I’m quite bullish on oil stocks 🙂
