Note: This feature have since been removed due to low usage.

We all have a limited amount of time. Are you spending that time wisely? And are you spending more time than you should be scrolling through Facebook? I am :(

In an attempt to change that, I thought that if I'm going to scroll through something on my phone, I might as well be scrolling through information on companies that I have invested or are about to invest in.

Hence, over the weekend, I added a new feature in SGXcafe that mimics social networks' popular feed system. However, instead of populating it with cat videos, It will be populated with company information instead.

For logged in users, information like latest news, upcoming dividends, and announcement releases for companies that you have in your portfolio or watchlist will be shown in your feed as SGXcafe receives them.

For non-logged in users, trending news and stocks (by volume) will be shown for now. Hmmm... perhaps I should also add market information like STI and ES3 for all users, logged in or otherwise.

As usual, this is only the initial version that I managed to code over the weekend. I will continue to improve this feature in the coming days. I am looking forward to your feedback on how it can help you better.

Happy investing!

This seemingly simple equation is in fact not that easy to compute. I recently adjusted and optimized the calculation of Current Yield from insights and discussions that several users have brought forth. What is Current Yield? English Definition: Current yield is an investment's annual income (interest or dividends) divided by the current price of the security (Source: Investopedia). Mathematical Definition: ...

Portfolio Sharing 2.0
Initially, the portfolio sharing feature was added with the intention to allow SGXcafe users to easily share their portfolios on their own blogs as I saw many financial bloggers in Singapore sharing their well-crafted portfolios but in a technically-inefficient way (e.g. copy and paste from excel sheet to html). Interestingly, this feature is gaining popularity in SGXcafe itself, especially after the ...
