COVID-19 & Straits Times Index

Okay, I’ll stop being a bitch and just vomit out what is on my mind.

1) The infection numbers are going to explode in the USA. Gonna overtake China by the end of the week if testing capabilities isn’t bottlenecked. Should hit past 1M by the end of April.

2) People are grossing and massively underestimating (a) how quickly this issue will resolve itself and (b) the economic impacts of it directly and (c) the future downstream impact as society itself changes.

3) This “crash” is NOT a buying opportunity YET. It is just 1 month into this bear market ffs!

4) A lot of business models are shit and most stuff on the SGX are pure trash that should really be cleansed out by an economic recession, even some of the blue chips. Buying them “because they are cheap” but without consideration how they will operate profitably and with an edge 5-10 years down the road will be a mistake that many will make.

5) On the other hand, there are certain sectors that will likely completely rebound when this whole crisis is over and will be hitting pre-COVID numbers in 2022 and beyond. Those are the kind of things that you’d want to be in.

6) Business environment will change rapidly and I think a lot of the commercial office space REITs are gonna get smashed hard and may never fully recover as BCP is showing that companies might not really need to rent AAA office space for…. whatever reasons they have.

7) USDSGD might go well up to 1.6 or 1.8

8) Opportunity will be for anyone that has NOT already started panic buying the “crash” and has ammo to buy the blood when the bad news finally peak.

9) When the time comes, consider using CPFIS if you have got that liquidity to spare.

10) Probably a terrible idea to be buying private property as an investment – massive liquidity requirements, terrible friction of both time and cost to exit, tiring as an asset to make it productive. Unless you’re an expert and are particularly looking to flip it eventually for the capital gains, I doubt that it would make sense to looking for firesale property unless you do have prior expertise and its a market you are intimately familiar with. To expand – it’s not that it is a bad market, but you’d probably get bested by the industry insiders with the liquidity to make the best moves.

I have more things on my mind, but I think the main points are that (a) FX risks is not being managed, (b) this is way too early in the crash to be buying stuff and (c) liquidity is king and will be what allows to even enter opportunities later.

Personally, I’ve managed (a) and (c) by keeping a sizable chunk of USD in BlockFi and just eating 8.6% pa. Even if we were in a bull market, eating 8.6% by sitting in cash is a pretty freaking good deal. It is an even more amazing deal in a bear market and a strengthening dollar. Just something to keep in mind.

When the time comes, I am prepared to either (a) YOLO even more into crypto or (b) yoink back out my USD from BlockFi back to my local bank account in SGD and start buying the local blood.

If REITs on average aren’t pushing 10%++++ on pre-COVID earnings, I’m not even gonna bat an eyelid, haha.

Good luck out there people, as your favorite Uncle Warren loves to say, it is finally time to see who’s been out there swimming naked.

Funny how I started preparing this post way back in 15th December 2012… goes to show how much I want my PTW stint to end. I kinda like army, but the place I was posted to, let’s just say let ’em rip.


My Domaining Journey

Getting really in the groove of the domain industry after having left it during the gold rush years of 2006-2008. Back then, I accumulated over 120 domains in various niches then sold them off in a fire sale, pocketing just above reg fee for the domains.

Now I’m back into the domain industry, domain parking to be exact. Cos I believe that’s where the money in domaining is to be made. No time spent trawling through domain aftermarkets or lurking around the drop zones for expiring domains.

I started with Sedo and NameDrive after picking up some domains with traffic. Got booted out from NameDrive for supposedly fraudulent traffic so I pointed the domains to Sedo. Seeing as these domains have thrived at Sedo since then (600 Euros so far) make me ponder over   their sudden ejection from ND.

I realized that I had a Bodis account from way back in 2007 so I dug it up and pointed my to it. ($90 so far) and 1 other future project domain. I still had which I got embroiled in trademark rift, almost.

Then I sort of diversified and when with Voodoo, DomainSponsor and AfterNic. Good revenues so far, in the mid $X,XXX.

Here’s for another good month.

Bad Weekend

This week sucks ttm. I lost my iPhone this morning. Really I’m like wtf. This a short gist of what happened… I withdrew some money as part of mum’s monthly allowance. I brought my iphone along to surf… I was listening to some song on Pandora and walking home, when I left my iPhone on the shoe rack to bring the slippers in. (hands were full you see and my pockets both got holes lolwtf)

This was 10am.

At 11.15am, my dad came back from JB. He didn’t see anything on the shoerack. GG.

And that’s the demise of my beloved iPhone 3G, which I originally bought for $180 from Li Yan, my JC classmate. ($20 discount for birthday lol)

A lesson learnt. Be more responsible. Though I believe more that in life, we gain some and lose some. This brings to mind last year where I picked up $150 on the floor. Lol, I thought those papers were adverts by illegal moneylenders (you know those CPF loan schemes?)

Okay, gotta sleep now. Tomorrow got MATADOR and M-203GL live firing.


Guess who appeared on ChannelNewsAsia? Nope, it’s not your truly. It’s my true love! Okay, what the hell haha. I need to get over her ><
