THE PORTFOLIO GIVEN BY KC, IN THIS EXAMPLE HAS BEEN RIGGED LOH..!!
IT IS DESIGN TO FAIL THE MARGIN INVESTOR LOH....!!

IF THE AUTHOR KC...IS GENUINE TO USE AS A CASE STUDY....WHY DON HE USE HIS 2013 PORTFOLIO, THAT IS HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL & SEE WHETHER IF USE MARGIN, WILL HE MEET WITH FAILURE LEH ??


The portfolio was published in public forums on 26th December 2016. It is publicly available information with the prices at the time of publish.

Why is the “example has been rigged loh”? Who “designed to fail the margin investor loh”?

Yes, my 2013 portfolios, two of them made about 130%. However, the test of the survival of margin finance is not to choose a successful portfolio. Any portfolio using margin finance must be able to survive any market condition, especially in the short term, and a six-sigma market distress condition. And we aren’t even any time near to that yet. In fact, the broad market was up but that portfolio already suffered a big setback of 28.9%. How brutal it will be if there is a sharp drop of the market like the recent Shanghai Stock Exchange, that of 2008, 2001, 1998 etc.?

I agree with raider loh, kc is bias. How u call those pick are random? It is just picked based on certain perception.


Me: Where did I say those picks are random?

I said i choose a random portfolio.

Why KC never talk about AirAsia?
Agree with both paperplane2016 and raider. If follow KC only 10-20 stocks can buy the rest cannot.


Me: I am triple curious about your above statements.

Shy must I talk about Air Asia?

Where did I say “only 10-20 stocks can buy the rest cannot”.

Do yu have any idea how many companies are listed in Bursa?

You got to read and understand the article rather than making so many presumptions.

Where have I compared my the return of my portfolio and the Random Portfolio?

Do you understand the gist of the article? And what message is it trying convey?

Whether the portfolio is randomly chosen or not, it doesn't matter. it is the perfect portfolio to use to convey an extremely important maxim is investing; Never follow anyone's advice to buy stocks, whether good or bad, with margin finance.

That perfect portfolio used shows that margin calls were effected with the sharp drop in prices of the portfolio, some of them even very good stocks,even though the overall market has gone up.

Google and read more about the serious consequences of margin calls. Or google the "advantages", and "benefits" of margin calls if you like, and see if you can find any.

Theory is what, since everything happens in random, how does theory predicts what is random. Keep a lot of cash, cash flow is King, try to use margin buying only in very evitable situations. Cash is King. I rather spend the money in night-club than throw money away for no reason. Cash is King, go to night-call, have sssss, cash is king.

raider is using margin trading.

He uses margin because whatever cash he has was not enough for his investing.

He is beholden to his tukang titik who provided him with margin financing.

He cannot badmouth margin trading as this would be bad for his industry, which his friends are closely into.

He is a good chap to observe but not to follow unthinkingly.

The stocks he likes or bought, he will defend these as having a margin of safety.

I have yet to comprehend how he gets his margin of safety after so many years observing his trades. :-)

Pisang Goreng,Your last sentence makes my day.

It now dawned to me that using margin is like an addiction. One can't pull himself out of the deep black pit.

But bear in mind that, go ahead with your addiction. do whatever you like. This is a free world.

But when you starts to preach an addiction, and encourage the young ones to get into this addiction, you are doing a great disservice to the society.

Please read this very important statement b4 u decide to use margin loh...!!

RAIDER SAYS WHETHER U R 21 OLD OR 40 YRS OLD SHOULD U USE MARGIN LEH ?
ANSWER IT ALL DEPENDS.....BUT THE INVESTORS SHOULD BE GIVEN THE CORRECT BALANCE VIEW. THAT MARGIN IS NOT THAT BAD OR GOOD....IT IS A MAGNIFYING NEUTRAL TOOLS.
WHETHER THEY USE OR NOT TO USE....THEY THEMSELVES NEED TO DECIDE....AFTER EXAMINING ALL FACTORS LOH...!!

Question is:
Among the two, A&B, who would have acquired the highest amount of Savings by the time they retire? Since we can't talk about future with certainty...we have to ask who (A or B) has a higher odds of making more money by the time they retire? A&B should a general median sample representing the average people - as its pointless to talk about special extraordinary events or special skilled people here.
OF COURSE IF U R A SUCCESSFUL INVESTOR....YOUR WEALTH WILL BE HIGHER IF U ....USE MARGIN....BCOS IT MAGNIFY UR GAIN LOH....!!

ON THE OTHERHAND....IF U R A LOUSY INVESTOR...U SHOULD NOT USE MARGIN AT ALL LOH...!! TO BE BLUNT,IN FACT U SHOULD NOT INVEST AT ALL....BCOS YOUR MAKE UP...IS NOT SUITABLE FOR INVESTMENT MAH...!!

One way to approach this is just like how we evaluate a business Value using DCF. Starting with purely Equity funding and as the Invested Capital keep increasing due to Re-investments, leverage had to be utilized using Debts to Fund. We have to assume that the business has its ROIC or more accurately its RONIC with a certain uncertainty on its Return Value….possibly going below the Margin Finance interest rate. THATS WHY RAIDER SAYS...TO USE MARGIN OR NOT....DEPEND ON HOW SUCCESSFUL U R AS AN INVESTOR LOH....!!

GIVEN THE ABOVE CONCLUSION, A LOUSY INVESTOR SHOULD NOT INVEST AT ALL....!!

THEREFORE GENERALLY ALL GOOD INVESTOR...SHOULD BE ENCOURAGE TO USE MARGIN....BCOS THIS WILL MAGNIFY IS GAIN LOH...!!

Therefore if KC design a portfolio....for losers....!!
DON U THINK THE LOSERS SHOULD NOT EVEN INVEST IN THE 1ST PLACE ?

MARGIN SHOULD BE USE BY WINNERS AND NOT LOSERS MAH....!!
BCOS THE WINNER SUCCESS WILL BE MAGNIFY LOH
ON THE OTHERHAND A LOSER LOSSES WILL BE MAGNIFY TOO LOH...!!

PLEASE GET THE FACT RIGHT LOH....!!

stockraider and his gang are gamblers, KC is not a gambler,
PLEASE NOTE THE FOUNDATION OF INVESTMENT COME FROM THE THEORY OF GAMBLING MAH....!!
A CONSISTENT SUCCESSFUL INVESTOR....MANAGE POSITIVE EXPECTED VALUE...WHEREAS GAMBLERS MANAGE NEGATIVE EXPECTED VALUE LOH...!!
WHAT IS NEGATIVE EXPECTED VALUE ?
IF U INVEST IN 4 EKOR....THERE ARE 10000 NUMBERS....!!
IF INVEST RM 1 IN EVERY NUMBER IT WILL COST U RM 10000 , BUT YOUR PRIZE IS ABOUT RM 6500 = THEREFORE UR NEGATIVE EXPECTED VALUE IS RM 3500 LOH....!!

AN EXAMPLE A POSITIVE EXPECTED VALUE....SAY THERE ARE 3 BOX...1 BOX HAVE RM 5000, ANOTHER HAVE RM 3000 AND THE 3RD BOX HAS ZERO CASH.
U CAN BUY ANY OF THE BOX FOR RM 2000 PER BOX.
SHOULD U INVEST ? THE ANSWER IS YES.....BCOS IT HAS POSITIVE EXPECTED VALUE LOH....!!
SHOULD U BORROW AND INVEST IN THE BOX ? THE ANSWER IS AGAIN YES...BCOS OF POSITIVE EXPECTED VALUE MAH...!!

stockraider gang beleives in his skill and life long good luck .
THIS IS NOT LUCK...BCOS WE DEAL WITH POSITIVE EXPECTED VALUE...USING MARGIN OF SAFETY MAH...!!

KC believe in value, less in good luck. USE KC RAIDER AGREE THAT KC BELIEVE IN VALUE...BUT HE HAS FAILED TO COMPREHEND THAT USING MARGIN IS VIABLE TOO....WHEN U DEAL WITH POSITIVE EXPECTED VALUE MAH...!!

if you want fast money, then join stockraider...RAIDER IS NO GAMBLER..BUT RAIDER ....KNOW HOW TO USE....ADDITIONAL INSTRUMENT (MARGIN)....WHEN THERE IS OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF POSITIVE EXPECTED VALUE LOH...!!

if you want safe money, then join KC...IF U STAY WITH CASH...RAIDER SAY FINE....!!
BUT AGAIN...PLEASE DO NOT MISLEAD PEOPLE...THAT MARGIN IS GAMBLING LOH...!!

the choice is yours...RAIDER AGREE FREE CHOICE WITH ALL THE FACTS LAYDOWN....!!


if you do not how to choose, then choose a pisang goreng..IT IS FINE IF PEOPLE....DO NOT USE MARGIN...!!
BUT TO SAY MARGIN, THE ROOT CAUSE OF INVESTMENT FAILURE...IS MISLEADING AND NAIVE LOH...!!

Essentially, raider is agreeing that 90% of thopse in the stock market should never use margins.

As for the other 10%, let raider tell us what happemed to them during the Asian Fonancial Crisis to those who are using margins?

RAIDER COMMENT;
No...raider only agree that, those incompetent & lose monies....should not involve at stockmarket mah....!!
Thus only Leaving the competent....that should be involve in stockmarket....loh...!!

Since the remaining balance of investor, they are competent..........they are encourage to use to magnify their return mah...!!

But using margin is at the investor option and perogrative loh....!!

Not all will use margin even competent...due to Age Old prejudice and misinformed..and misinterpretation....a good example is like investsmart and kcchong mah...!!

From Raider's points...what I can conclude so far on how one can benefit from Margin Finance:

(1) You really need to diversify probably more than 20 over stocks from different sectors in your portfolio.

(2) You have to limit the Margin Finance to your Self funded Equity with a very much higher Safety Margin...instead of max 1:1 ratio...1 Self funded to 0.5 Margin Finance...so that even if stock market crashes comes close to 30%...you wont be forced to sell your Equities.


You really have to strictly follow the above and you cant really expect an extraordinary gain due to you large diversification...probably u will make 1 or 2% more over the Margin Finance Interest rate from the Margin Financed Equities.

I believe the above is mainly because Investment in stock market is not the same like Real Assets where you don't have a forced selling scenario when the Real asset value is valued much lower than your original purchase value simply because it did not generate Income at all or its ROIC is < COD during the first few years (short term).

HAVE A LOWER GEARING IS PRUDENT....BUT A CRASH NOT TO FORCE SELL IS TOTALLY WRONG MAH....!!
SELLING WHEN THERE IS LOSSES IS PRUDENT LOH....!!
JUST LIKE WHAT KYY SAYS MARGIN CALL IS GOOD LOH...!!
U JUST NEUTRALISE THE MARKET FALL IMPACT LOH....!!

You really have to strictly follow the above and you cant really expect an extraordinary gain due to you large diversification...probably u will make 1 or 2% more over the Margin Finance Interest rate from the Margin Financed Equities.
NOT TRUE LOH...THE GAIN CAN ON THE AVERAGE USUALLY DOUBLE USING MARGIN COMPARE WITH NOT USING MARGIN LOH...!!
WHY THIS IS SO ? IF U DON USE MARGIN....U ONLY PREPARE TO USE UPTO 70% TO 80% LEAVING SOME CASH TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OPPORTUNITY LOH...!!
A GOOD EXAMPLE IS ICAP....WHY IT FAIL TO PERFORM FOR THE PAST 4 YRS ?
BCOS IT HAS KEEP TOO MUCH CATCH AND UNDER INVESTED LOH....!!
WITH MARGIN U CAN GO 100% TO 120%....STILL GOT BULLETS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OPPORTUNITY LOH...!!

Raider...I didn't get you when you said :'forced sell - in certain condition you can benefit'...how is that?

You procured it at a higher price and because others selling brought down the price...you are forced to sell at a lower price. How do you stand to benefit...hope u can elaborate more.

And also, can you elaborate on this issue:

"Being a successful value investor requires that you have staying power. “Leverage can’t ever turn a bad investment good, but it can turn a good investment bad. When you are leveraged you can run into volatility, that impairs your ability to stay in an investment which can result in a permanent loss of capital.”

Raider...I thought when you are forced to sell...then you have already reached the Margin limit. How to find more fund to buy back at a lower price...and isn't it much likelier that the price shoot up higher than your selling price after the forced sell.

Unless...you reallocate by selling other stocks and buy CIMB at 4.00..is that what you mean?

BUT MARGIN HOLDERS....THE SELL TRIGGER WILL ALERT THEM TO SELL WHEN IT IS RM 7.00 TO RM 6.00 MAH....!!

A cash holder of CIMB, using his own money of RM100000 to buy CIMB at RM8.00, would have lost only RM33000 at the present price of RM4.80, even if he is still holding the shares. The loss is 41%, and not your “U WILL MAKE A SUBSTANTIAL LOSS OF MORE THAN 50% LOH..!!”

For simplicity sake, let us look at a simple case.

You advised a newbie to invest in CIMB shares “using margin to the limit”. You asked him to invest RM200000, RM100000 is his own money and the other RM100000 from margin finance, because the interest rate was so cheap, and it is stupid not to use margin finance to make more money to buy a good share like CIMB, plenty of margin of safety mah!

Then the poor fellow encountered force selling at RM6.00, or 25% drop of the share price. He has now incurred a total loss of RM500000 because of the margins.

Nevertheless, the margin user seems to be happier, according to you, because his shares have been forced sold at RM6.00, and now he has “build up his capital” of RM50000, although he has made an exaggerated loss of RM50000 already.

Now you advise him to buy CIMB at RM4.80, a much lower price than his forced sold price, and that CIMB is such a good company.

Questions:

1) Are you advising him to buy using his own money of RM50000, or “use margin to the limit” again by using another margin finance of RM50000?

2) If the earlier option, he has lost RM50000, or 50% of his own capital, he needs to make 100% to recover. How long do you think he has to wait, just to recover his loss?

3) If the option is the later, what would happen if CIMB drops another 30%?

4) Or you think the scenario is (3) above won’t happen? Why are you so sure?

Have you seen a couple of stocks in the portfolio posted here, a genuine portfolio, and not randomly selected stocks to fail margin finance, have lost more than 50% in just three months, even when the overall market went up?

5) If (3) above happen, what would be your advice again? And why?

My understanding is simplistic.
Margin = Leverage. Leverage = win more, also lose more. No need argue which is best. Margin is a financial tool, risky but if you are skilled, go ahead. I must declare I am not a user of margin financing.

KC should chill out when trolled. Perhaps you may not understand what is a troll.
"In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion,[3] often for their own amusement."

Keep up the good posts, kcchongz.

A GOOD STOCK MAY SUBJECT TO FORCE SELL....AND AGAIN TAKE SOME TIME FOR IT TO RECOVER MAH...!!
JUST LIKE CIMB....IT USE TO BE AROUND RM 8.00....BUT IT WAS SELLDOWN TO RM 4.00....AND NOW HAD RECOVERED SLIGHTLY LOH....!!
SOME IMAGINE U R A CASH HOLDER OF CIMB....HOLDING COST OF RM 8.00..NOW AT RM 4.70....U WILL MAKE A SUBSTANTIAL LOSS OF MORE THAN 50% LOH..!!
BUT MARGIN HOLDERS....THE SELL TRIGGER WILL ALERT THEM TO SELL WHEN IT IS RM 7.00 TO RM 6.00 MAH....!!

A cash holder of CIMB, using his own money of RM100000 to buy CIMB at RM8.00, would have lost only RM33000 at the present price of RM4.80, even if he is still holding the shares. The loss is 41%, and not your “U WILL MAKE A SUBSTANTIAL LOSS OF MORE THAN 50% LOH..!!”
For simplicity sake, let us look at a simple case.
IN ANYCASE THE MARGIN HOLDER WILL BE LONG GONE AT 7.00 TO 6.00....B4 IT REACH RM 4.00 MAH.....!!
THIS INDICATE MARGIN HOLDER WILL LIKELY TO LOSE LESS LOH...!!

You advised a newbie to invest in CIMB shares “using margin to the limit”. You asked him to invest RM200000, RM100000 is his own money and the other RM100000 from margin finance, because the interest rate was so cheap, and it is stupid not to use margin finance to make more money to buy a good share like CIMB, plenty of margin of safety mah!
AGAIN RAIDER WILL LIKE TO EMPHASIS IF A CASH HOLDER PUT RM 1OOK CASH ON CIMB.....AND HOLD UNTIL SAY RM 4.70....HE LOSSES AT RM 41K WILL NOT BE NOT LESS THAN THE MARGIN HOLDER WHO PUT RM 200K AT RM 8.00 AND LARI KUAT KUAT AT RM 6.50....A LOSS OF RM 37.5K LOH...!!
BUT UNLIKE THE CASH PURCHASER....THE MARGIN HOLDERS NOW IS IN A SIGNIFICANT CASH & FUNDING POSITION TO MAKE PURCHASES IF HE CHOSE TO MAH....!!
THIS SIGNFICANT MARGIN LINE.....ALLOW HIM TO TURNAROUND WHEN THE SHARE UPTURN. THE CASH PURCHASER WILL HAVE LESS FLEXIBILITY LOH..!!

Then the poor fellow encountered force selling at RM6.00, or 25% drop of the share price.(FORCE SALE WILL BE DONE NORMALLY AT RM 7.00 TO 6.00 THUS RAIDER TAKE RM 6,50). He has now incurred a total loss of RM500000 because of the margins, THE LOSSES FROM THE FORCE SALE IS RM 37.5K LOH...!! ABOUT 19% LOSSES MAH..!!.

Nevertheless, the margin user seems to be happier, according to you, because his shares have been forced sold at RM6.00(RAIDER SAY RM 6.50), and now he has “build up his capital” of RM50000, although he has made an exaggerated loss of RM50000(RAIDER SAY RM 37.5K) already.

Now you advise him to buy CIMB at RM4.80, a much lower price than his forced sold price, and that CIMB is such a good company.
HE HAS THE OPTION NOW TO BUY LOH....!!
JUST LIKE MAYBANK...IN 1998-1999...IS FORCE SALEDOWN TO ABOUT RM 2.50 MAH....!!

Questions:
1) Are you advising him to buy using his own money of RM50000(37.5K), or “use margin to the limit” again by using another margin finance of RM50000 (RM 37.5K)?
YES...HIS GIVEN AN OPTION OF 2ND CHANCE TO RECOVER....VERY FEW PEOPLE GOT THIS TYPE OF OPPORTUNITY LOH..!!

2) If the earlier option, he has lost RM50000 (RM 37,5K), or 50% of his own capital, he needs to make 100% to recover. How long do you think he has to wait, just to recover his loss?
RAIDER SAYS ASSUME THE CASH HOLDER WITH RM 100K CASH AND MARGIN HOLDER CAPITAL CASH RM 100K...BOTH LOSS SAY RM 40K...WOULD IT NOT BOTH HARD PRESS TO RECOVER ITS CAPITAL LEH ??
LOSING MONIES IS NOT DUE TO MARGIN OR CASH INVESTMENT....BOTH RUN INTO UNFORTUNATE BAD LUCK MAH....!!

3) If the option is the later, what would happen if CIMB drops another 30%? AGAIN RAIDER SAYS THE MARGIN HOLDERS HAS THE OPTION TO USE...HIS BUYING POWER LOH...!!
TO BUY AND NOT TO BUY IS AT HIS OPTION LOH....!! IF CHOSE TO BUY THE SAME LEVEL OF CIMB SHARE AS THE CASH HOLDER....HIS LOSSES WILL NOT BE MORE THAN THE CASH HOLDER....SHOULD THEY HAVE THE UNFORTUNATE CONDITION OF LOSING ANOTHER 30% LOH...!!

4) Or you think the scenario is (3) above won’t happen? Why are you so sure? OF COURSE THE ABOVE SCENARIO...DO HAPPEN....BUT THIS LOSSES IS APPLICABLE TO BOTH THE CASH HOLDER AND MARGIN HOLDER MAH...!!

YOUR ARGUEMENT & SCENARIO...IS LIKE PUTTING UP A CASE OF NOT INVESTING INTO EQUITY LOH....!!

IT IS NOT...LIKE SHOULD INVEST IN EQUITY....BUT USE CASH BUT DON USE MARGIN MAH....!!
BCOS THE CASH HOLDERS SUFFER ALMOST THE SAME LOSSES OF MARGIN HOLDERS LOH...!!

Have you seen a couple of stocks in the portfolio posted here, a genuine portfolio, and not randomly selected stocks to fail margin finance, have lost more than 50% in just three months, even when the overall market went up?
RAIDER ALSO SEE CASH HOLDERS LOSING 100% OF THEIR EQUITY TOO LOH...!!
IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MARGIN HOLDERS ONLY....IT IS THIS PEOPLE ARE NOT CUT OUT TO INVEST IN THE 1ST PLACE LOH...!!

5) If (3) above happen, what would be your advice again? And why?

Its obvious that leverage magnifies the losses. I dont know how people can argue that margin call is a good thing.

Simple terms, if you leverage up to 2x, it takes a loss of 10% on the actual share price to make you lose 20%. If you use cash, you only lose 20% when the share price drops 20%.

Also what makes you think cutting loss is a good strategy ? It is only a good strategy if share price continues to drop after your margin call triggered. What if after margin call triggered, the share price goes up instead of down, you would have lost the opportunity to enjoy the gains vs a cash investor who had the holding power.

My understanding is simplistic.
Margin = Leverage. Leverage = win more, also lose more. No need argue which is best. Margin is a financial tool, risky but if you are skilled, go ahead. I must declare I am not a user of margin financing.

THIS IS PRECISELY WHAT RAIDER HAD BEING SAYING ALL THE WHILE.

BUT ONE POINT...I WANT TO CORRECT KPFAM...IF U R NOT COMPETENT U SHOULD NOT INVEST AT ALL LOH....!!
IF U DO NOT INVEST...THERE IS NO ISSUE OF USING MARGIN AT ALL LOH..!!

IF U R COMPETENT...THEN U SHOULD INVEST LOH...!!
THEN THE QUESTION ARISE...WHETHER U SHOULD USE MARGIN OR NOT TO MAGNIFY YOUR SUCCESS SINCE U R COMPETENT ?

stockraider,

you are a good man

finally you have made it clear that not every man can use margin finaning to invest.

One must learns how to crawl first before run, be bottle fed first before eating with spoon .

so this statement "IF U R NOT COMPETENT U SHOULD NOT INVEST AT ALL LOH....!! needs improvement , if not some baby may be very disappointed , never have a chance to grow strong and run fast like you

I am also glad that you recommend Ah Kau to join KC online course, that is right, if not , how can he know what is MOF

so , now I see , you are actually sharing something good.

but I still like to remind you that the good value of your sharing is overshadowed by all the cut and paste that i suggest you should try your best to do away. What's a waste if your heavenly wisdom is not allowed to exhibit but hidden in the shade. try it out,without cut and paste, there is nothing to lose, I am sure you will find thereafter your wisdom will shine brighter and you will come back telling me in reality it is true, MAN PLANS but GOD DECIDES.

GOOD LUCK and never never forget or ignore the role of LUCK in your investment which is indispensable especially in your margin financing to get rich fast

I think most important...is to avoid being killed due to volatility.

(1) That has to be done via significant diversification...and perhaps stocks which are really close to negative EV and high MOS.

(2) Never use the Margin to the limit (have MOS here also)...so that you can dampen the damaging effects of volatility - avoiding losing your Capital significantly.

Hmm...i certainly need years to identify good stocks in such a 'convincing' manner......

You know although I don't know you in person at all, but you are the few who always give me moral support. So it is understood that i always appreciate your kind words, just like a few others.
