My First Two Years Investing in Philippine Stock Market




Last Dec 2012 was my 2nd Anniversary with COL Financial (previously known as CitisecOnline). I am very satisfied with the outcome of my 2 years with investing in Philippine Stock Market so I thought of sharing those days when I started with just Php 5,000.00.

I am a fan of Bo Sanchez. I heard a lot of stories about him. I attended “The Feast”, bought books he wrote and read the story of his life. One time, I knew about his club called “Truly Rich Club”. It was in the Club’s website that I was able to download his free e-book “My Maid Invests in Stock Market.. And Why You Should Too." This opened my eye to a new world, a world I never dreamed of entering: the Philippine Stock Market.

When I was in College, my friend talked about his professor investing in Stock Market. As she was enthusiastically telling me that her professor invites them to invest their small amount of money, I disregard the thought of putting my savings there (if I have any). Just imagining those graphs makes me afraid. I thought it was too risky because Stock Market is something I am not familiar with. But when Bo introduced CitisecOnline, I never thought I would be able to join with a small amount (because I was thinking it would cost me millions). So I told myself, I will definitely try it when it’s still a small amount to risk.

I opened an account in CitisecOnline

With no idea how stock market works, I went to Philippine Stock Exchange Building in Ortigas, filled out my form in CitisecOnline, applied for Easy Investment Program (EIP) and deposited Php 5,000.00. (Click on the choices if you are interested to open an account: Have time to go to their office or Want to send forms to through Courier).

My First Purchase Order

So excited when my account got activated, I bought 2 stocks: RFM and SMPH. Bo mentioned that you should buy a stock that you know. I know SMPH but since it is Christmas season at that time, I thought of buying RFM because they might have large sales for their products like pasta and sauces. That’s how clueless I am as to what I should buy and letting my own analysis do the decision making. It was really tough not knowing what and when you should buy. By March, I decided to join the Truly Rich Club because I know it would be hard to do it on my own. I need guidance.

Officially A Truly Rich Club Member

Part of what the Club gives when you join is an article called “Stocks Update”. In this Article, you can see the suggested stocks to buy, the “Buy Below Price” and the “Target Price”. When the price of the stocks suggested is lesser than or equal to the “Buy Below Price”, you can buy the stocks. When the value of the stock is within the “Buy Below Price” and the “Target Price”, you wait and when it hits the “Target Price” (or a few cents near it), you sell. It was a lot better when I joined the club. I had a clear vision of what to buy and the proper timing of putting the buy and sell orders. The Stocks Update is like a traffic light for me, it tells me when to stop, when to wait and when to go.

The First Stock Sold

When I saw the list of suggested stocks, SMPH is included but RFM is not. So I decided to sell RFM even with 2% loss disregarding the dividends I received from the company. First Stock bought, first stock sold, first loss. Not a good start huh? But I was convinced to do it because in the future, I might lose a bigger amount if I don’t sell it right away. As I’ve mentioned, I don’t have much idea about RFM and I don’t know whom to ask when to sell it.

My Earnings In Two Years

With Truly Rich Club’s help, my portfolio grew to more than twice my monthly salary now. By the end of the year, I am targeting to have it 4 times my monthly salary (meaning doubling what I have now). I’m really excited about it and I am very thankful to Bo Sanchez’s Truly Rich Club. It has been blessing me ever since I started joining. So if you are also starting your investment in Philippine Stock Market, I invite you to join the Club. You’ll learn a lot plus you are helping Bo Sanchez to support his missions like Anawim.

    1. Hi Luke,

      I am happy to see a comment like yours. Thank you for visiting.
      It's good na habang bata ka pa, you are planning to invest na.

      What I can advise is for you to pursue investing. Act now while you're young and develop the discipline of saving regularly a portion of your baon. Start small but start early. Years from now, magugulat ka na lang, malaki na yung shares mo sa mga companies na nabibili mo.

      I started with 5k as a minimum opening sa COL Financial. Monthly I set aside a portion of my salary, yun yung pinapambili ko ng mga stocks na suggested ng Truly Rich Club. Pag nahit yung target price, I sell. Then I reinvest whatever I get from selling.

      I hope you can start as soon as possible. The market is down now, and it's a good time to buy because it's like a "3 month sale or longer" in stock market.

      If you have more questions, just post a comment here or reply to my mail.
      Thank you!

    1. Hi Em,

      You can actually start learning even if you are not yet ready to open an account in an online broker. Save regularly until you have that 5k to open an account in COL Financial. I refer this online broker because I have been using their system since I started. I cannot compare it with others since I haven't experienced using other systems like Acord Capital. So if you have questions in COL Financial, you can freely ask me. :)

      Regarding your interest in Stock Market, please start with this simple guide from my blog.

      http://pocketwisepinoy.blogspot.com/2013/04/philippine-stock-market-guide-for.html

      There are also other materials which you can see from my blog. Just go through my archive. You can see posts on how to buy and sell stocks, explanation of some terminologies and how to open accounts even when you are abroad or outside metro manila.

    1. Earning in stock market depends on what company you are investing in and how it is doing in the market. You earn when you sell shares in a price that is higher than your buying price. It's the same as in a business where you gain profits if you sell a product at a price higher than how much you've bought it. One more type of earning is the dividend (may it be cash or stock). Hope this answers your query. Thanks for posting a comment. :)

    3. Hi. For you to know what stocks to buy, you can do your own research on the company you are planning to invest in. There's a lot to choose from. The only question is, which one is the best choice? That is actually what Truly Rich Club (TRC) is trying to answer.

      TRC does their own research on companies and narrows down the options. They give a list consisting of 5 to 10 companies depending on how many good companies are great investments according to their research . In that list, they give amounts as to when you should BUY, HOLD or SELL. It's like a traffic light which guides you which action to take. If TRC says in its stock update, "Buy Company XYZ when its below 5.00 pesos per share and sell if it's 8.00 pesos" and the current price in the market is 4.00 pesos, you BUY. if it's more than 5.00 pesos, you HOLD. Do not buy. If it reaches 8.00 pesos, you sell. That's how easy life becomes when you are a truly rich club member who gets the stock updates. :)

      I hope this clarifies your queries.
      Let me know if you have additional questions.Thanks!

    1. Hi JM,

      Thank you for visiting my page and I really appreciate you leaving a comment regarding your interest to invest while you are still very young.

      In investing, time (aside from cash) is one of the most important factors to succeed in this venture. So if you are asking if it's ok to invest in stock market at an early age, it is! However, you need to take note that you should have proper guidance on what stocks to buy, when to buy then and when to sell.

      In my case, I am not an expert in analyzing graphs regarding company performance and predicting what will be the value of the shares within months or years from now. I needed someone to help me on the researches so I joined Truly Rich Club. As a start, I recommend this club. This will give you materials that will surely aid you in investing in stock market.

      If you are interested, just go to www.crmapili.trulyrichclub.com. You will get your free ebook "My Maid Invests in Stock Market and Why You Should Too" when you visit the page. Just type in your email ad.

      Hope this helps. Thank you for your time!

      Regards,
      Catherine

    1. Hi Feb,

      Regarding sa question mo if you need to check the market everyday or everyweek, it's really up to you. Sa case ko kasi, I get stock updates from Truly Rich Club. From that electronic newsletter, they provide a list of stocks that they recommend to buy based on their research. Merong prices na din na nakalagay kung kelan sya magandang bilhin (Buy Below Price) at kung kelan sya magandang ibenta (Target Selling Price). With the stock update, I don't have to check everyday. Pag may funds ako, icoconsult ko lang yung list na bigay ng TRC then kung ok pa yung price, bibili ako ng shares.

      Kung wala kang guide, that's the time I think you have to make your own research of what companies are good to invest in.

      Let me know if you need more info. :)

      Thanks!

    1. Hi Rhea,

      Sure. I'll send you an email.

      Regarding monitoring, through internet you can buy or sell shares so there's no need to go to Philippines to buy shares. You just have to apply in COL Financial for an account then once you have your account, you can start posting your buy and share orders through their site.

    1. Hi!

      The initial deposit is 5k. That's their minimum requirement to open an account. Succeeding fundings can be lower than 5k. So I suggest, save your cash until you have 5k to open the account and after you have open the account, you can start buying with your initial 5k deposit. Then deposit 2k every month to purchase additional shares.

      Hope that clarifies.

      Let me know if you have additional questions.

      Thanks for commenting!

      Cath

    1. Hi Weng, you can submit the forms and other requirements via courier. You don't have to go back to PH to open your account. Once you received your account details, you can fund your account through BDO remittance since you are outside PH. After COL Financial receives your initial funding, your account will be activated and you can start buying shares. Account is accessed online so you can easily post your buy orders to purchase stocks. Hope that clarifies your query.

      Let me know if you have other questions.

      Please visit my other post for details on the forms and requirements:

    1. Hi Maam Teresita,

      I sent you a mail. :) Please let me know if you received it.

      You can definitely invest while doing your profession because everything is accessed online. The buy and sell orders are posted online so you don't have to fall in line just to buy or sell shares.

      Choosing the company where you will invest will be the part that might take time as you need to do researches but if you have no time to do researches, you can try getting the guidance from Truly Rich Club. Visit their site: www.crmapili.trulyrichclub.com so you can know more about the club. They provide the list of companies that they have studied to be profitable in a certain period of time. It will be helpful for you as someone new to the market.

      Hope I answered your question.

      You can start with 5000 pesos and just fund your account when you have enough cash again but I highly recommend that you fund your account monthly even with just a smaller amount so that you can develop the discipline. I suggest putting 20% of your salary montly if that's possible. Otherwise, you can invest what's comfortable for you. Thank you for your comment!

  79. Ma. Cathy, I would like to share to Filipinos especially to OFWs to start investing as early as possible to generate huge amount of returns, even without the need of leaving their spouse and children after they got married. Investing helps create passive income. Start saving as much as they can to achieve long term financial freedom and avoid the culture of dependency among children when parents got retired.
