My Investment Portfolio (September 2008)

Volatility is the name of the game this month. But let's take a step back again and analyze the situation. Is the financial markets around the world already in doomsday? Obviously not. Will there be more bank failures? Possibly yes. How many more to fail? Recession?

There is no point answering all these question. In fact, for a long term investor, the answer is very simple - Buy on weakness. Because markets don't like uncertainty. Which is why the markets is very volatile nowadays because everything is uncertain. But volatility equals opportunities.

A lot of people told me that cash is king in the current market. I would say that cash is king provided that it had been put into good use. I would also like to add that cash flow is king instead. For a long term investor, cash flow from dividend payouts, M&A activities, management buy-outs etc will provided the much needed funds for one to re-invest back into the markets and take advantage of current low market prices. If one's portfolio is well diversified and adopt a long term view, there is no need to panic and sell at all.

I have utilized part of the proceeds from Unisteel Technology delisting to re-invest back into the market this month. Will be making some more purchases in October.
