With some spare time on my hands and the ease to update, along with further movement on the SET since last updated, I here post the latest interim updated model as of 11AM this morning, May 27th.  The only stock I have taken profit on to date is CHAYO at...

Market surge has been confined to least affected by CV19.

Reflecting some post the surprising to many stock market rebound.

The US -and to a good extend Thai stock market as well- has run up allot into the news that things, virus wise, seem to be getting better.  Its important to understand that in the US at least, most...

BBL (95.5) has been a laggard in my otherwise SET outperforming model portfolio.

An interim update, so far 54% ahead of SET index.

In mid-March 2020 I went maximum bullish on Thai stocks after a 3 year period of lethargy. I felt the CV19 induced selling was overdone and stated on March 14th at my front page that I viewed shares oversold and likely an investor opportunity of a lifetime.  Not long after...
