Since age and profession may play a role in how we do stock investing, may I offer this thread for additional insight on how these affect our stock trading pattern.

I'm 50, married with 1 kid in college and 1 kid in HS.

Day job is in medical equipment/supplies and also in medical clinics (not a doctor, investor lang).

Current goal is to retire from daily work soon, so my stock portfolio is built for medium term.

^ Philippine stocks is NOT IDEAL for "generational" transfers if you are thinking about value.

In other words, long term PSE stock holding is not the right way? So Buffet's way is not for us?

^ I truly admire buffett's skills in stocks.  In fact, I even bought a 4-inch or more thick book of Benjamin Graham, who is a renowned mentor of W. Buffett.

When buying stocks, I use the principles of buffett and graham in value investing.  But my experience in our country shows that we cannot keep local stocks for 'life' more so for 'generational transfers'.

the teachings and at the same time the practice of buffett fits well in the US only.

34 (just got) married. No kids yet. OFW, Telecom engineer by profession. 

Just started in stock market investing last month though I've planned and did some research since a year ago.  I'm also in front of the PC everyday and occassionally I can check on PSE via COL.

Saving for retirement is my ultimate goal for my stock portfolio.  :)

Hi, ECE grad ka? BS ECE kasi ako, UST batch 1985.

Anyway, IMO hindi pwede for retirement ang stock investment only. The dividends are very small and if you need to sell regularly, patay kang bata ka kahit matanda ka na!

My goal is to grow it enough to invest in some businesses that can provide regular cash flow during my retirement.

30, Single.
Works Firmware R&D for a Japanese firm in Cebu City.

if you are in the 30s, would not the dividend yields be big enough by the time that you will be 60?
e.g., buying Aboitiz Power in 2009 at around 5 pesos, now dividends are at 1.20.  That would be a dividend yield of more than 20% based on the original buying price.

It is a very simple explanation and yet its still hard for many to understand.
