That's only for speculators n traders... long term investor will fare better as inflation will push share prices up over time.
Agree... the first thing that come to my mind when I read the title is " this must be the doing of a hardcore gambler or speculator depending on how you want to call him...

What he said is partially true, not everything is wrong. Not all stock players lose as there're many good investors who survived long and well, including traders too.

But locking-in the profit and practice buying cautiously is never wrong too. The thinking that long term investor always win in the end due to inflation pushing the price up is not always right too. There's many example for that, like those who invested in bankrupted companies/ or soon to be bankrupt, suspended company. The longer you invested in those companies, the worst it gets... just ask those who long Noble, you will understand.

I usually buy with a mindset of a long term investment, but when the gain is decent, or the price of the stock I'm holding become too expensive in my opinion, I will gladly sell it away to lock in the profit, there's no point holding on to it forever if it's no longer cheap. We have to keep re-evaluating the price of our stocks overtime to decide if it's getting cheaper or more expensive to act accordingly.

must have one win one lose is only applicable to short term traders. If you are long term investors, then everyone can actually be the winner

Even Singapore Zoo Ah Meng ( deceased )
would have done well with STI ETF or holding many big REITs that give 4-8% yearly.

That sounds little for someone who invested since 1970s.

They likely compared STI+dividend yield to property price index without taking into account rental yield of property, furthermore of course property investment is leveraged... who can invest in property without taking housing loan?

I don't trust such 'quotes' without seeing the actual data.

Its easy to get too carried away by the "average" data, the fact is there is only a small handful who made a lot higher than the average, and many many more who lose much of their invested income.
