As an investor, we often want to believe that we can pick stocks that can beat the market.
So I made a
game that allows us to test if we could actually pick stocks that can beat the market.
The idea is simple: you will be given facts of an anonymous stock on a historical date. Based on the information, you will choose whether to invest or ignore that stock. Once you have made the decision, SGXcafe will immediately tell you if you are correct on the next screen.
Of course, I do not claim that this simplified game will be an accurate measure of your stock-picking capabilities, but I do hope that this game can assist you in testing or refining whatever strategies that you may have and help you become a better investor!
More importantly, I hope you will have fun playing!
It is, after all, a game :)
p.s.: I will continue to improve the game. So feel free to share with me your thoughts. Also, if you have ideas on other types of investing-related games that can help us become better investors, I am all ears.
p.p.s.: The beta version of this game was pre-released to Friends of SGXcafe. All scores as well as the leaders' board will be reset as I made some tweaks to the algorithm and question selection. Thank you to all who provided feedback!

Improved Portfolio Reporting
One of the main goals of SGXcafe is providing a portfolio management tool. It is also one of the most popular features in SGXcafe. When I added the ability for one account to have multiple portfolios, it was quickly adopted and used by hundreds of users. However, at that time, you could not look at individual portfolio for the portfolio reporting tab and a few users requested to have this feature added. ...
Should You Avoid High P/E?
It has often been advocated to avoid any stocks with a high P/E. The common argument is that you would be overpaying for hype stocks. However, overpaying or not depends on how the high P/E stocks behaves in future. For example, if high P/E stocks actually do grow at a rate that is significantly higher than low P/E stocks, then it is arguably justifiable to buy stocks with a high P/E. One real-life ...
