My history

I was born in 1961 in Zhejiang Province, China. I stayed at my home town till 1978 when I enrolled into Tsinghua University in Beijing.

I graduated from Tsinghua University, in 1983 with a Bachelor Degree in Electrical Engineering. After that I became a Dispatcher in the Power System Control Center of Zhejiang Province, Hangzhou, China. My work was dispatching the power grid and power plants in Zhejiang Province.

My work was the management of power utilization in Zhejiang Province, including Demand Side Management, power supply quota allocation, electricity demand forecast and providing instruction for improvement of equipment efficiency to electric power consumers.

By my effort, Sing-Kun was put into operation when it was even not able to pay its telephone bill in June 1999. Sing-Kun survived and generates positive cashflow since then.

From September 2000 to March 2003, I am appointed as General Manager of Singapower Development Pte Ltd and in charge of overall management of Singapower.

History of my investment in stock market

I commenced my investment in Shanghai stock market in 1992 with about RMB5,050. In 1996, before I came to Singapore, I withdrew from China stock market. From 1992 to 1996, my annual investment IRR in China stock market is 17.2%.

I commenced my investment in Singapore stock market in October 1998 when I bought 8,000 shares of NatSteel Electronics with SGD26,200. Later on I bought some other stocks, such as Ming Wah, JIT, Globa Tech, NatSteel Broadway, Sunway, TPV, Singamas, Sincer Watch, ASA Group, China AVOil, UniFood, Meiban, Swing Media, Jardine C&C, HG Metal, Singpu, ect. I got some profit from most of them and had loss with some of them. But for overal investment, I believe that my investment in stock market is successful. From 1998 to 2015, my annual investment IRR is higher than 30%.

I am willing to share my opinion of investment in stock market with you. I may update my recommendations on "Investment in stock market" page. I will post my recommendation of buy-list and my reasons for the list.
