Looking at the Baltic Dry Index which according to Wilkepedia is :
"An assessment of the price of moving the major raw materials by sea. Taking in 26 shipping routes measured on a timecharter and voyage basis, the index covers Handymax, Panamax, and Capesize dry bulk carriers carrying a range of commodities including coal, iron ore and grain." It has been going down since June 09 and some stocks are being squeezed into a tight consolidated range between the bollinger bands which classically signifies a impending move.Besides it well know that in Sep and Oct stocks do dip statistically.
But oh heck with it. We just bought some SIA Engineering and SMRT shares recently and yes we are impatient and thats bad ...really bad..illogical and unwise.Simply put...stupid.Anyway, as fundamental investors, we dont try to catch the bottom nor the top. We just wanna catch NEAR the LOCAL bottom or LOCAL top and we are in heaven. Hope nothing unforseen happens!So why these seemingly boring stocks. SMRT..what the heck!
So how about SIA Engineering? We figured that Singapore is becoming the center of MRO in Asia Pacific with the government paying special attention to this area. We also figured that the Singapore Airlines Group of company which comprises of Silkair, Tiger Airways, Virgin and SIA already provides a base of recurring clientship for this company. In addition, SIA is noted for being at the forefront of flying new planes like the A380 which means SIA Engineering got expertise compared with her peers. Anyhow, having briefly a stint in the aviation industry, we do think that this is a kind of engineering work where people dont just outsource to low cost countries or companies as the consequence of a shabbily done job is catastrophic. We also think that this company will be one of the beneficiaries of the spillover effect from the casinos in Singapore....OK we also noted the following...
Oh well...discipline my friend..we are working on it. Luckily, we still have some bullets left for the rest of October. Let's hit the low. Its just a game..
