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 creation of
this thread. As of this writing, there are
135 shared portfolios in SGXcafe. Therefore, in the past week, I added a few more functions to this feature to leverage on the wealth of information shared freely by the generous SGXcafe users.
Statistics - You can now easily view various statistics regarding shared portfolios such as the most common stocks in all shared portfolios, median value-at-risk, median profit and loss, etc.
Trending - This functionality was suggested by user
felixleong. I assume it is based on the "Who's Hot" idea of the social network movie? But I may be mistaken. In any case, instead of searching for the hot faces in campus, we are showing the "Hot" stock that in recent days is bought/sold the most by shared portfolios.
Likes - As the number of shared portfolios grows, this allows you to follow/focus on selected shared portfolios. The above functions, statistics, and trending will also be displayed in additional columns for shared portfolios that you have liked. Try it out by liking a few shared portfolios.
I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to share your portfolio so that we can all learn from each other. There are options where you can choose to disclose only the allocation percentages without the exact amounts as some people, including me, are shy/not comfortable about sharing their portfolio's net worth (e.g.
See my shared portfolio). Simply go to
this page to set your preferences.
Finally, I would like to assure you that I take your privacy very seriously and if your portfolio is not shared, I will NOT use it at all for any kind of calculations that will be viewed by others.
- The new functions are great, keep up the good work ^^

How to retire?
Many people that I know invest not to be rich, but simply hoping to be able to retire one day. Likewise, my main goal of investment is to retire. Naturally, I am curious to know how I will be able to retire. More specifically, how much do I need to invest annually? What rate of return do I need? When I can retire? To answer these questions, I decided to build a simple simulator. Basically, it assumes ...
Becoming an Angel Investor
Last week, when I shared my portfolio in another article. I received comments privately from several people such as "50 stocks in your portfolio?!?! I think 30 should provide more than enough diversification", "Have you heard of Warren Buffet's 20 slot rules?", "Why are you holding so many different stocks?" etc. Well, there are a few reasons to this. 1) I have yet to devise or find a sound approach ...
Share Your Portfolio Selectively
Our portfolios are very personal and sensitive information. While many users have generously shared them publicly, many more are not comfortable with opening up their portfolio and share with just anyone who visits sgxcafe.com. This is totally understandable. Even I only share my portfolio partially (portfolio is displayed without exact values). Hence, I have recently added a followers/following mechanism ...
