Sold SCC @ ₱175.20, WLCON @ ₱8.58, SECB @ ₱260.40

Sold some of my holdings in SCC @ ₱175.20 and WLCON @ ₱8.58 yesterday. I also sold some SECB @ ₱260.40 earlier today. The SECB I sold included what I mistakenly bought for ₱252.20 and some shares I bought last year.

I really like SCC for their earnings and the consistent cash dividends, however the price seemed a bit high. I’ll try to buy it again if the price lowers a bit. WLCON was a bit high, and it went even higher after I sold, but selling at around 68% above IPO is good enough for me.

Bought BLFI @ ₱3.96 which I intend to accumulate as long as the price stays low enough. My only concerns for this stock is the low trading volumes and its P/E of around 15 isn’t cheap. Its div yield of around 5% (at its current price) is great though. It typically ex-divs around the 1st week of March, payable at the end of March.

Still looking at LR, which maybe I should have bought earlier today before the price spiked to ₱4.32. Also looking into FGEN at ₱17.10 (52 wk low) which looks like a good price to buy it. PIP @ ₱2.90 and PBB @ ₱13.20 also look like good buys.

I should really start putting down the steps I use in deciding whether or not to buy and sell a stock and then continually improve it. Maybe I should put it in a flowchart. Typical steps I use are:

  • Is it relatively cheap in terms of its current P/E? B/V?
  • Does it give good cash dividends and its dividend history?
  • Earnings trends
  • How is the management team and reputation?
  • Price trends for the past week, month, 3 months, year, 2 years and 5 years.
