What are Preference Shares?

Preference Shares are difference from ordinary shares. Unlike ordinary shares, preference shares do not have voting rights. This means that the share holders are not entitled to participate in the company’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) and vote on matters listed on the agenda.

Preference shares are ranked higher than ordinary shares. In the event of company bankruptcy, preferred stockholders will be paid out in assets before common stockholders, but after debt holders and secured creditors.

Dividend from the preference shares can be fixed or adjustable based on factors stipulated at the points of insurance. Your buying price for preference shares will also affect your yield on them.

Preference shares can be convertible or non-convertible. Convertible preference shares have the flexibility of converting to common shares. This allows you to lock in the dividend income and potentially profit from a rise in the price of the common stock. These are benefits that are not attached to a common stock.

Preference shares can be cumulative or non-cumulative. For cumulative preference shares, it means that if a company missed any dividends within the year, such missed dividends will be added to future dividends during the period of holding the preference shares.

Seven Habits of Highly Profitable Investor 2: Buy with the selling price in mind

Many new investors buy share without knowing when to take profit. These people are less likely to be profitable since they do not have an exit plan. Hence it is very important to define your selling price before you buy any shares.
The below is a typical example to show a new investor’s mind set when they just entered the market.A new investor invested in a stock and his stock price rose. He was very happy as he had some good paper profit after a few years. Without proper defining the selling price, he might think that the price will go up further. Due to his greed, he refused to sell even though the stock was overvalued. After sometime, the stock prices started to plunge, but he still hope that the price will rebound and go up higher. The rebound never appeared and his paper profit turned into a paper loss. In the end, he eventually gave it up at a big loss which he held for many years.

We must always buy with the selling price in mind. We must set our profit goal before buying any shares as that helps us trigger our action to take the profit when it hits our target price. Having a goal in mind helps to prevent greed from taken over our mind. If you have never set your profit goal before, I believe now is the time to do it.

Seven Habits of Highly Profitable Investor 1: Be Proactive

To be a highly profitable investor, we must be proactive in every aspect in our investing life.

Firstly, we must be proactive in learning how to invest by yourself rather than dependent on other. The worst thing to do is to let people invest for you as people will not be responsible for your losses. Also you must not ask for tips from your relative, friend, colleague or even your broker. Remember no one is to be trusted. All the investment must be based on your own decision and own your analysis.

Secondly, we must be proactive in learning how to select your stocks based on the fundamental of the companies. Don’t invest in anything that you never hear or have little knowledge in it. Spend some time understand the company financial status by reading the annual report. Remember, don’t ever invest in companies that have been losing money or facing bankruptcy.

Thirdly, we must be proactive to derive your own way to calculate the buying price and selling price for stocks that you are interested in. This is to prevent you to buy at a high price or sell at a low price. As for me, I will normally base on yield of the stocks and basic Technical Analysis (TA) to determine the buying price and selling price. For others, they may have other way to doing the calculation.

Investment Rule no. 4:

My Investment Rule no. 4: No discipline is the key of losing money in the market.

We always hear people say, “You can’t go broke taking profits.” However in my opinion, one may just go broke by taking small profit at a time. Most people does not have the idea to maximize their gain and because of that they tend to sell their holdings too early. When come to loses, people are not able to sell their holdings early and end up taking large losses.

Remember this point, investing and trading is not about maximizing the number of winning trades. The two examples below will be used to explain this fact.

Example 1: you win a total of $1000 in 9 trades but in the 10th trade, you lose $10000. Basically you are losing $9000, even though, you have more winning trades.

Example 2: You lose a total of $1000 in 9 trades, but in the 10th trade, you win $10000. Basically you are gaining $9000 even though you have less winning trades.

Every investor or trader should think of their own strategies and must have the discipline to follow it. The strategy must be working for long term and not short term gain. Short term market movement always like to mislead people to go against their strategies. And most of the time, this may result in people losing opportunities to make more money, or can even make people lose more money.
