Recent Sell transactions

Recently sold the following shares:

  • SSI @ ₱4.71 and ₱4.70 on Aug 30, 2017
  • SMPH @ ₱33.70 on Aug 31, 2017

I typically sell for just two reasons, one is to risk manage, the other is that the stock is just plain overpriced and I believe I can eventually pick up the stock at a lower price.

My recent sell of SCC was for reason 1, while WLCON @ ₱8.58, SECB @ ₱260.40, SSI @ ₱4.70 and ₱4.71 and SMPH @ ₱33.70 was for reason 2.

Since I sold WLCON, it has gone up to the ₱9.50 range (I’m still holding some shares) and I’m just wondering how much that stock can still rise.

SMPH is still around the same range as when I sold it. I simply don’t think that the multiples of SMPH justify its price (around 37 P/E), specially with a net income growth rate of around 15% Q/Q. As with WLCON, I’m still holding some SMPH.

SCC has gone up, notwithstanding the ₱5/share that I missed on. I am also still holding some SCC.

SSI and SECB have gone down. I’ve sold all my SSI and am still holding some SECB which I intend to buy again.


Bought SMPH @ ₱28.75 and DMC @ ₱12.06

Bought some additional SMPH and DMC on March 16th, adding to the SMPH I had bought in mid-Oct last year (@₱26.90) and averaging down the DMCs I bought in Jan 2015 (@ ₱14.68) and Feb 2017 (@₱13.06).

After selling some ALCO @₱1.48, wondering if I had made a mistake not getting back in @₱1.38 (as it’s now at ₱1.42).

In terms of wondering about mistakes, maybe I should have sold some Shell at its peak of around ₱80.00 now that its around 9% lower than that. My thinking was that its expected that Shell will have an attractive dividend policy. Something that I haven’t read any updates on, just yet, since the IPO.

Also looking into getting some Wilcon IPO and CPG @ ₱0.50.
