Hi ts,
I'm also like you just started in Dec last year , also started with a very familiar capital as U (first trade made was 4k shares of tai sin electric @0.38 each )

1.if you're always waiting you will never buy , stock prices always go up and down

2. Annual report are only good for reporting for that financial period , there's usually a time lag between the annual report and the current time , I still use it though . Usually I look at companies that are cash rich and have strong operating cash flows

They do affect share prices though it's not as much as a catalyst (aka event happening )
3. It's not really relevant to me sincE I don't buy in etf

4.you can take a look at sites like dividend seeker to check when the etf / stocks are giving out dividend.

5. I currently use sgx cafe to record my portfolio details

Yes it is. Either ES3 or G3B. POSB InvestSaver is using G3B.

How to start investing

Hi , I have recently read up the book , value investing in growth companies by rusmin and victor chng , and learnt about how to read balance sheets , assessing company management , assessing business and how to valuate firms to purchase their stocks . Is this sufficient for me to begin investing ?

i would also like to learn about how to invest in etfs and reits. Could the seasoned veterans here please recommend comprehensive learning materials - books, videos , to learn everything about how to asses and valuate these investment vehicles to begin investing in them. Thanks !
