hi! i have a stupid question: where can we buy blue chips online?

im also looking for venues to invest some of my savings. ^^

It's not a stupid question. Actually, a lot of people don't know where to start when it comes to playing in the stock market. In a way it's not off-topic since you asked about blue chips which you typically hold long term compared to the second liners and the chupita stocks.

You have two ways of going about this either through a red-blooded broker or through online systems. The advantage of going through a broker is the input and the guidance they can provide but if you're shy (which is typically the case) you can go to these sites: firstmetrosec.com.ph, bpiexpressonline.com, citiseconline.com. there maybe others (i doubt it) but these are the ones worth their salt.

Now since you mentioned you wanted to invest in blue chips i'm assuming you won't be trading actively but rather like a wham-bam-thankyou-m'am kind of thing where you just buy and forget about it. I suggest you go through a live broker so that you can be given the proper recommendations. Log in to pse.com.ph for the FAQ and a list of the member brokers and their contact numbers. Hope this helps :)

LT2 of Metrobank is a tradeable instrument. Pretermination is not allowed, however, you can buy or sell these if there's demand/supply. Bid price/offer will be determined at the time of trade hence you may experience capital gain or capital loss as the case may be.

isn't 7% just more or less enough to offset the inflation?

online systems are also brokers. you can only buy a stock through a broker. hehehe

what i think you mean is "online systems" and a "consultant" broker/agent. i'm not really certain what is the proper term for the latter.

anyway an online system is for the broker to let you place orders on your own and trade on your own. before online systems you need make a call to your broker/agent and he/she will place your order. and since may human interaction, more often than not you consult with that person on what the good buys or sells are.

Gold, as a long term investment (10 yrs up), actually yields more than S&P500 and 10-Yr T bond.

saan ba nakakabili ng gold dito sa pinas? Saudi kasi dali lang bumili ng gold at ang baba ng commision dito kaya sa atin paano ang systema?

di ba mahal na ginto ngayon? tataas pa kaya ? kasi sobrang taas na talaga.

That may be true historically, but is historical performance a guaranty of future returns? Ten years is a long long time to find out.

If you invest in gold, 10% of your total portfolio should be the maximum.

land especially high commercialized lands will yield you far better than money market..consider this


agricultural land 1980's 1 hectare aprox 10,000 pesos now around 1m
commercial land 1980's 50 sqm for 10,000 too with rent will be worth around 2m if the land is worth around 40t now
stocks ur 10,000 will probably be 200,000 if you invested on smc shares
time deposits 10,000 will yield an average of 7% for 30 years net of taxes will amount to 76,000

taking inflation into account, i think the best long term investment is still putting up your own business and secondly investing in the stock market.

It still depends on your risk appetite.

suggest you read the fund's prospectus... past performance doesnt guarantee future success.
trade safely.

Investing in wine is also shown to have handsome returns in the long-term. It is not easy to do it here in the Phils though. Masisira lang sa init ng panahon dito.

this is true in the States and in Europe, but imho, not applicable here in the Philippines. why? aside from the hot weather as stated, iinumin lang yan ng mga pinoy....

for me, i think the best long term investment is real-estate.
