Uncertain Times Call for Extraordinary Investment Decision

Author:   |    Publish date:

Earlier today rumors of the current government declaring the state of emergency, shook the investment community.

Everyone here will be wondering:

  1. What will happen to my glove stocks on Monday?
  2. What will happen to my technology stocks portfolio?

Sounds familiar? Read on then.


Just a day earlier, Italy’s three largest cities face new curfews as regional authorities try to slow the spread of COVID-19 where it first struck hard in Europe, most of whose countries are now imposing, or mulling, new restrictions to cope with rapidly rising caseloads. Czech Republic's government on Thursday re-imposed exactly the same heavy restrictions it slapped on citizens in the spring  and which Prime Minister Andrej Babis had repeatedly said would not be repeated amid a record rise in infections.


Today, Spanish regions are urging the central government to take measures that would give them legal backing to impose curfews as the country battles a resurgent coronavirus epidemic. As of Saturday, 10 of Spain's 17 regions, including Valencia, Asturias, Castilla-La Mancha and the Basque Country, had called on the government to decree a state of emergency, which would allow regions to limit people's movement

Currently, Malaysia is also facing similar decisions that needed to be made to control the Covid-19 pandemic. Though rumors flying around the political theme regarding the current government stance to block any oppositions schemes, it doesn’t seems likely that the current King who is wise will be swayed by these rumors.  Social medias and traditional medias loves to sensationalized this topics to create more needed publicity.

But one thing for certain is Covid-19 pandemic is till around, numbers are still rising, and no doubt about the demand of gloves in the next 12 months.

We can take the March 2020 market plunge as a barometer but in the end, many glove or tech stocks are trading much higher than they were when most of them plunge back then.

So what shall we do?


  1. If you are a short term investor(<30 days), you might want to take profit, to protect your principal, buy back when it’s cheaper again.
  2. If you are mid term investor(> 30 days < 6months), you might want to take half your profit and top up, when it’s cheaper.
  3. If you are a long term investor (>6months <5 years), you should keep whatever you are holding as likely, your average entry is low and your margin of safety is greater than 50%. You may top up if you have additional cash.
  4. If you are a ultra long term investor(>5 years), you should keep and hold and top up, as you are not bothered by the noise and fluctuation in the market. You hold very fundamental stocks that should do well for the next 1-2 decades and your margin of safety is greater than 80%.
