  6. Hi Mam Fehl, newbie here po. Im currently based in abroad and always wanted to do stocks. Ive just send me application to COL Financial and wanted to start investing, trial lang po muna for Php5000 starter po 🙂 Any recommendation which stocks should I buy for long term mam? thank you in advance po 🙂

    • Hi, Gilbert. If you’re into long term, I recommend blue chip stocks like ALI, BDO, SMPH, SM, AC or those listed on the best blue chip stocks sa

      Those companies are well established already. I’m confident of their growth and potential 🙂 Cheers!

  7. Hi Miss Fehl

    I’m planning to open an account in Col Financial. Buy stocks maybe quarterly and then sell it maybe after five or ten years. May I know your thoughts about this?

    Looking forward to your advice.

  8. Hi miss fehl Im going to buy for ALI, is it a good idea for me to continue the transaction? what are the advantage for me if im going to hold this for several years? thanks so much! 😀

    • ALI is a nice choice of blue chip stock. It has a good source of recurring income. The company is stable and has a good balance sheet. It’s good for long term of 5 years or more as it will build generous profit in the long run. Do PCA method and keep it for several years. God bless!

  9. hi ms. fehl I just bought now my first stck URC @ 179.6 for 20 shares. I plan to stick to it for 10yrs using PCA @5000monthly. Is it a good bye? market closed today @179.5 its BBP is 190. its now on HOLD. Still my question, did i make a sound decision for it? Please help guys. thanks a lot.

    • Hi, you can check out Magic 10 stocks at The stocks I recommend for long term or short term are listed there. Thanks

      • Hi, I have come across several listings of highly recommended stocks for long-term investment. But just like your own list, it does not include SMC even if it qualifies as a blue-chip stock based on your definition in (quoted below). Why is that?

        “Blue-chip stocks are stocks from large corporations or well-established companies that have operated for many years already. These companies are well-known, well-established and well-recognized as “Giants” because they usually come profitable and stable in spite of economic challenges thus making them not too volatile.”

        Nevertheless, I have SMC stocks and I see that their price is appreciating. In fact, it’s the stock that’s giving me gains to date. Would you advise me to continue buying SMC stocks?

        I’m happy to note though that you have in your list the three banks I have investments in.☺

  10. hi fehl
    i already have 3 companies on my portfolio
    is MPI a good choice for long term investment?

    Ask ko lng po

  16. Hi Fehl, How can I earn Dividend from stocks. I recently buy units from BDO? I don’t have any experience in investing

    • If your budget is below 5K, there are some stocks you can still buy like ALI, URC, JFC, MBT, BDO. All of them are great to invest with

  17. Hi! May I know the reasons why you recommend the each of the stocks listed above*?
    And how did you come up with the formula BPPI?
    Thank you so much! 🙂

    *Banks – MBT, SECB, BDO
    Power – MER, AP, FGEN, EDC
    Property – SMPH
    Infrastructure – EEI

  18. hello po, baguhan palang po ako sa stock market, paano po ba mag peso cost average basta mag bibili lang ako ng share. ganun po ba yun?

  19. hi maam, for starters po ano magandang stocks for the ff:

    URC vs JFC / BDO vs BPI vs MBT

    Trading: BLOOM vs CEB

    thanks for your inputs!

    • Regarding your question, my personal choice is URC then BDO. I prefer CEB than BLOOM coz I stay away from amusement companies. CEB is cool to flip. At the end of the day, it is you who has the final decision 🙂

  20. Hi Ms. Fehl, would like to seek to your opinion about the fni (global ferronickel…), already get stocks @ 1.47(avg) after last week’s erratic fluctuation of price.. Many thanks and more power…..

    I’m currently an 18 yr old College student. advisable po ba na mag invest ako sa Stocks?

    I have my eyes set on these companies:

    1. JFC
    2. SM
    3. BDO

    I’m very interested po mag invest ngayong bata pa po ako.

    thanks again and I hope to hear from you soon!

    More power po! 😀

    • Hi. The earlier you start investing, the better. I wish my parents started investing for me when I was 1yr old so I could be multi-millionaire at 18. 🙂 I advise you get to know the basics about investing in the stock market and start it as early as now. I’m sure experience of it will teach you so much too 🙂 My stocks recommendations are posted at

  22. Its my first time to read about stocks but it interest me so much immediately because of the informations I learned from your blogs. I just want to us if it’s advisable to start UITF Equity Fund this month? Thank you so much

  23. Hi Ms. Fehl, iniisip ko sanang mag-invest sa DMCI ngayon dahil malapit sa 52-week low yung price nung stock (P15). Considering na yung 52-week high nung stock ay nasa around P80+ iniisip ko na maganda sigurong pagkakataon ‘to to buy a very good stock for a bargain.. Any thoughts? Thank you!!

  24. hi ms Fehl, do you have blog for zero knowledge regarding investment? how to start?

    but actually I just started yesterday investing sa BPI, kahit wala p ako masyado alam nagbakasakali na ako. need to start and learn na. hope you can help me more. thanks so much God bless

    • Hi. Yes, you can go over our STOCKS menu if you want to invest on stocks. Go to our UITF menu or Mutual Funds menu if you want to invest on them. 🙂

  25. Good day Fehl;

    This reply of yours just caught my attention as mentioned above,
    “However, you must stop buying on the margin and sell it on the Target Price. If you have no margin and target price, you might lose money.”

    What do you mean by margin? I mean can you provide a sample figure?

    I’d like also to know if it is really NECESSARY to have a land-line number when opening an account with COL Financials or other registered online brokers.

    It would be grateful to receive your response.

    Thank you. 🙂

      • And so my intuition was right about that “margin”. Talking about the contact number, i saw through the online application that the phone number box is labeled with (*) asterisk w/c means that they are requiring it but I’ll try registering providing my cp number alone….

        Thank you so much and tc always. 🙂

          • Yes invest in MWIDE hanggang bagsak presyo they are preparing for recurring income like operating cebu mactan airport, solar energy, orthopedic hospital, bus and train terminal, siempre constructing bldgs. Look at their projects kaya i think sure shot for long term investment ang MWIDE. Hold it for 3 years.

  26. Hi Fehl, plan ko po mag long term investment. pano po ba ang procedure? buy lang ako stocks tapos sell ko after mga 10-20years? ganun po ba? di po mawawala ung stocks na mga binili ko tama po ba?

    • Hi Reynan. Stocks investment has risks. Yes, you can do long term. It’s one of the ways to minimize risks. The other way is diversification. Spread out your funds in buying stocks slowly over a period of time. In that 10 year long term plan, you can sell your other stocks and use your profit buying other stocks. It’s like letting your money roll as it grows.

      • Do you recommend using EIP from ColFinancial? or is it ok kung buy lng ako manually every month kung saan ung price ng stocks are below price? ok lang ba kung sa iba2ng company kung ok lng mga ilang company rerecommend mo? salamat 🙂

        • EIP is especially to those who don’t have time to buy stocks regularly because EIP can be automatic depending on the schedules you created. It’s great too if you buy manually when prices are low. We post our stocks picks at

          • Thank you Fehl. ask ko lang sa pano pag online registration need parin ba pumunta sa office ng col financial? tska ung 5k po na registration fee magagamit ko pang bili ng stocks or para sa registration lang yun?

          • Hi. If you don’t want to open account at COL’s office, you can do so. Just download the forms required from COL’s website and fill them out with your details, prepare photocopy of your government issued ID and your recent credit card statement then mail (LBC, Air21) them on COL’s address found on their site as well. It usually takes a day when they arrive there. COL will email you then for your account opening confirmation and details how to proceed in funding and activating your account.

            You can easily see the guides here:

  27. Hi Ms. Fehl,

    I know that the best time to invest is yesterday and the 2nd best day is today. Im about to buy my first stock but these days are the peak in years of PSEi. should I wait a couple more weeks and wait for it to go down a bit?

    • Hi, stocks are going up these days but it’s still great time to buy as long as the stocks don’t exceed their fair value margin or what we call Buy-Below-Price. We give the BBP at Stocks usually go down at the middle of the year coz of typhoons or any month when there is a global market crash

  28. hi fehl,

    i just want to ask if do you have seminars pertaining financial analysis or how the company worth buying po. i’m still newbie and willing to learn
    thank you and godbless

    • Hi 🙂 I don’t have right now but you can see the basic guides I do here by going to the STOCKS tab above. You can attend free seminars given by stockbrokers, too. Usually 4-5 scheduled seminars covering basic, fundamentals, technical analysis and picking stocks.

  29. Hi Ms. Fehl,

    I have heard that BDO shares will be sold for 20 to 25% discount. Is this true or a hoax? Ift his is true when would that be possible?

    Thanks for sharing your projections – BPPI. would like to give it a try.


    • That would only be true when we see the Stocks Offering on our broker’s account or bank Trust rep. So far wala pa. I recommend you join I invest using their Magic 10 stocks. Impressive 39% return this December alone

        • Payments can be done via credit card or Paypal. It’s only $4.99/month. It’s easy to sign up. Select the Premium Membership and complete your details. You can also read their FAQ to know how. I’m a partner so I recommend it 🙂 You can also contact me here if you have any question about it. Always happy to help 🙂

          • It says there it will be billed each month, what if you want to stop yoursubscription? how will you cancel it? thanks

  30. I am planning to open an account in Col and Bdo eip this January. is this the best time to invest? Sorry newbie here… 🙂 btw, love your posts 🙂

  31. I started to 30 share of MBT at 83.75 ( just for experiment ) is this good? Maybe I will hold it for a week then sell if there is higher price. What can you suggest to buy for a good start in stock market? Thank you

    • Hi. MBT current price is below its fair value so it’s a strong buy as of now. However, you must stop buying on the margin and sell it on the Target Price. If you have no margin and target price, you might lose money. Better join Dailypik and follow the Traget and strategy to earn profit and build your portfolio

  32. I am a first timer in buying stock. Can you suggest what will be the best stock to start with? I am planning to buy JFC but I think people now a days eat less JFC foods because of holidays and xmas and new year. they prefer to cook they want instead of going to fast foods. Any stock best for you to start with?

    • Hi Rolando. JFC price is a little bit higher right now. It’s on HOLD status from our stocks list. If you want to access all our stocks list, join and you will surely become multi-millionaire soon 🙂

    • Yes, investing is buying shares periodically (monthly, quarterly) over a long period of time until you reached your Target Price or Target Period for that certain stock

  33. Hi Ms. Fehl,

    Learned so much about your blogs! Tahnk you for that. I would like to ask about the 52 week high/low range, how can it help in choosing stocks to buy? and how can i determine if i’m already on a margin wherein i can already sell my shares? thanks!

    • the 52 week high/low is usually a factor to determine if the price you’re buying is cheap right now. It is the highest and lowest price of the stocks in the last 52 weeks. Many traders buy when the momentum kicks in or when the price of a stock exceeds the 52 week high coz they’re speculating it will go even higher. On the other hand, some people buy when it reaches the 52-wk low coz they anticipate it will go up higher again. This is just a little strategy, we must still use fundamental and technical analysis to choose the worthy stock to buy.

  34. Hello Ms. Fehl, i just wanna ask if investing on stocks can prove strong ties here in the Philippines? I’m currently unemployed and I wanna apply for a tourist visa to USA. Thank you.

    • Stocks may be considered as paper assets. I think real properties like lands and vehicles are stronger ties than paper assets because the latter can be disposed easily. But they could help your visa application the way bank accounts do 🙂 If you’re married or have kids, that could be the strongest ties if your family are based here in the Philippines

  35. Hi Ms Fehl,

    Personally, ano po yung reason why you are focusing on MBT that BDO? because i invested in BDO and maybe ill shift to MBT if theres a need.

    Thanks po ulit.

  36. Hi po. Ask ko lang if advisable pa mag invest sa stocks market ngayon Dec. 2014?
    Balak ko po mag Equity Fund, pero di ko alam saan magandang bank mag invest? or kung the best ba ang Equity Fund? pls. help… im new in this field. salamat po….

    • Mababa ang equities right now compared the last semester, so yes, it’s advisable to open one and let it stay for long term. I always advise long term kasi equities gain so much in 3 years or so

  37. Greetings Fehl!

    For Yr. 2015 Power Sector securities, what are your insights about EDC & FGEN?

    Honestly, I’m a bit confused with the following securities:
    EDC, FGEN, and FPH, falling under the same sector/subsector (Electricity, Energy, Power & Water) and with the same BOD.

    Highly appreciate your response.

      • Hi Fehl, Why be careful of FPH?

        ” Hi! I like EDC the most from the 3 stocks you’ve mentioned coz of its fundamentals. Be careful of FGEN and FPH “

  38. What about Security Bank ? They’re doing good too.Another thing I noticed is Phil economy is consumer driven why no consumer stocks ?

  39. Thank you for your helpful tips. I would like to ask what specific day (mon-fri) and date is good to invest in stock? I am new here at COL. I hope to hear from you soon.

    • No one really could tell since the stock market is very unpredictable. If you watch it like a hawk, you’ll go crazy hehhe As to date, I love Sept and October to buy more stocks although I invest monthly
