Today we are launching a community project #SpikingBigFamily to turn it into a regular thing because Spiking is all about empowering our users and leveraging their playing field. We will be conducting interviews with our users, Sophisticated Investors like Blue Whales, Millionaires and Billionaires and feature them here.
As such, today we are featuring one of our users Ms Ong Yanny.
Q: Can you tell us something about yourself?
A: I am a semi-retired co-director of a family business and I have more than 20 years of experience in the stock market.
Q: What kind of investor are you?
A: I would say I am more of a long-term investor now and I invest mostly in Blue Chip stocks. I also invest in international markets, such as in the US, Malaysia or Hong Kong.
Q: How are you deciding which stocks to buy?
A: I am a member of the Securities Investors Association (SIAS) so I regularly goes for talks and sometimes I buy on their recommendations. I also buy on rumours, news, friends’ recommendations from time to time.
Q: How has Spiking affected or changed that?
A: Currently Spiking is not my main source of information because I don’t invest as much in SGX as in other stock markets. But I am looking forward to Spiking’s new generation product when you have information on 10 stock exchanges in 8 countries across APAC.
Q: What do you like about Spiking
A: I find the information presented on Spiking very useful and consistent. For example, if I am holding shares of a company and I see that some Blue Whales come in, I will know I shouldn’t sell yet.
Q: What would you change about Spiking?
Currently users have to do a lot of private investigative jobs themselves because just knowing who buys what stocks is not enough, we also need to know why and their relations to the company.
We thank Yanny for sharing with us her experience with Spiking. If you would like to be featured as a user, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
