Nearly 400 people joined us for InvestX Congress 2014 last Saturday, 14 June, at Suntec Convention Centre to discover if they had the investor “x-factor” and how to make winning investments in the stock market.
The sold-out event kicked off at 9AM with Victor Chng, author of Value Investing in Growth Companies and lead columnist at The Fifth Person, shared with the audience his system for analysing investments using The Investment Quadrant and a case study on one particular growth company, in the local education industry, which could potentially see its stock price rise by 36%-72% in the next two years.
He was then followed by Edwin Ng, a former performance analyst at Citi Private Bank, who presented how to use fraud and forensic accounting to detect signs of fraud and “creative accounting” in a company and avoid having an Enron-like investment debacle on your hands.
After lunch, Kevin Tok, co-founder of Aggregate Asset Management – a boutique equity fund with over $100 million in assets under management, educated the audience on the merits of making wise and prudent investments to steadily grow your stock portfolio and how to retire financially free.
The highlight of the day came in the special masked appearance of “AK”, author of the popular investment blog A Singaporean Stockmarket Investor. The blog fetched over 1.12 million page views last year and many in the audience were there just to listen to AK reveal his secrets to income investing and how he made over $120,000/year in dividends from his stock investments alone.
We saved the best for last as Rusmin Ang, author of Value Investing in Growth Companies and fellow lead columnist at The Fifth Person, wrapped up the day’s events with a detailed research presentation on one Hong Kong listed company, that is one of only two suppliers worldwide in its industry, that is growing at 29% per annum and with a potential 45% upside in its stock price.
