i personally love the following books, and attribute them for preventing myself from heavy loss, given how idiotic i am. i like to think of myself as a value investor although quite honestly i doubt i can live up to the label.

1) The Five Rules for Successful Stock Investing
2) The Intelligent Investor (this book will prevent you from making terrible financial mistakes)

These two books, if read thoroughly and meticulously, is enough I feel.

Another good book on trend following.
The Trend Following Bible by Andrew Abraham

For those who follow this strategy, try screen the market for those stocks that are above a certain moving average and keep track of how many days it's above the moving average. Do this for 10 to 20 years period and you will see the trend is very consistent across SGX and US market.

As per book suggest, patient !
Most trend died a premature death i.e. 70% don't live beyond 10 days.
Being patient saves money.

Question

Personal review

The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham:
While the book does not impart techniques to specifically select stocks, it discusses a wide range of topics. Eg. Investment vs Speculation, Portfolio Allocation, Dividend Policy. The book provides an excellent foundation for beginners to learn investing and its principles. Personally the book had convinced me to go for investing compared to trading.

A Random Walk Down Wall Street: The Time Tested Strategy for Successful Investing --
This book gives readers a general guide to navigating the financial market. For instance, he advises that investors use four basic determinants to help estimate proper values of companies.
Expected rate of growth. Larger growth rate of earnings and dividends, higher the price.
Expected dividend payout. Higher percentage of dividend payout, higher the price. However, other factors are not considered. Poor prospect company may pay good dividend while expanding company may hold back dividend like Apple.
Degree of risk. Naturally, higher risk, lower price.
Level of market interest rate. Lower interest rates, increase in stock price expected.
Do these books explain how to read and understand an annual report to someone with no finance background? Or could you recommend one which does?

Yup, it's the best as it's commission is just 0.2%+/- vs $20-$25++ min for other brokerages... e.g. Singtel at $3.50 for 100 shares only cost $0.70+/- vs $20-25++ in other brokerages...
Sorry, just wish to clarify is SCB still no min commission? As I read it having $10 min now, no?

Thank again for this great post, will vet through the link provided in first post.

That was long long ago. $10 has been in place for a year at least.
