It's first week of 2011, time to sit down, think and plan what we going to do from here. How much investment return you have made last year? Like Christmas' present, it's already opened, be it positive or negative, doesn't matter, the most important, we want to plan and take action so that we can obtain similar return as last year if not better.
Let's look at the current situation, oil price start the up trend again. Malaysia government also raised the petrol price recently. CPO price now above RM3,800, almost all time high record. Inflation is expected to follow soon. As an investor, we know money if keep in bank, it's not going to do any better in this situation. We need to turn our money in some kind of asset that will benefit us, meaning inflation proof.
We will continue to hold on our investment portfolio this year, for sure they going to increase in value coming months due to inflation. We know when more people become rich (high income nation), good asset and great company's stock will increase in value. Further, Malaysia will be reclassified as "Advanced Emerging Market" effective Jun 2011, that's why we notice many foreign fund inflow at first week of 2011 pushing the index to record high of above 1500 points!
