DID YOU EARN A PROFIT OF RM9,685.00?

This is my third year blogging with excess of 100 articles. Lots of fun.

I thought why not state my BLOG'S OBJECTIVES? So here goes:
1. To improve candidates' maturity level in understanding ACCA subjects especially at high level

2. To improve candidates' exam practice techniques

3. To encourage and motivate ACCA students in their quests to achieve ACCA Certificate - ie GRADUATE

4. To profit all readers. Useful Stock Market tips, analysis were given. For example, if you take the investment analysis dated August 6, 2008, after less than 20 months, the stock - TSM Global shares shot up by 96.8%. That outperformed the KLCI by >80%. The same period, the KLCI was at 1114 and now was at 1,286 (3 MARCH, 2010) In other words if you [dare] sell your car for say RM10,000 and invest in this stock, you will earn RM19,685.00 before Stock Commission charge.

Now, the extra money is enough to pay for the entire Kasturi Tuition fees for ACCA!!
