Investing in the Philippines

The Ultimate 'Market Place': The Philippine Stock Exchange
The Ultimate ‘Market Place’: The Philippine Stock Exchange

Since I’ve gone professionally full-time with my writing, I was wondering how to best maximize the time given to me.

Aside from ministry, fitness, reading, cooking, creating media plans, and maintaining an awesome website, I figured why not try investing in the stock market.

I recently invested in the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) and I am still figuring out what other companies to invest in. I am really digging companies related to what affects me directly such as power, communications and utilities. There is a lot of potential for them and the Philippine economy as a whole.

In a recent conference I attended, my financial consultant (who is also a good friend) introduced me to a guy who had gained a lot of money from the stock market. He was pretty much pleased with himself, too!

The thing is, when I asked him about tips and such since I was a beginner myself, he became all tight lip. He minced his words.

Well, I don’t blame him. Why would he share the wealth, right?  😉

In the meantime, I’ll do what I do best: learning everything by myself.

How about you? Have you tried your hand in stock investing? What kind of companies are you looking at?
