Is there land that sells reasonably locally? Seems everything is upwards of 300K with approvals in an ok neighbourhood.

On a side note, anyone have a timetable for TTSE stock dividend payouts ?

I trust my own ability to generate money in private busienss versus most investment schemes, including government bonds as the rate of return is normally too low to guarantee long term success without significant loss due to market volatility over a 10 and 20 year periods.

This thread is a few years now... I'm interested to see if Trac made some good decisions ?

I'm not going to assume one's gender, but I'll assume Trac's age... and as an admin, I'd assume you were past the ideal age group to start long term investment (early 20's) at the time of this thread's start date.

What's an ok neighbourhood? Why buy there? Are you buying to invest or to live? Because the house you live in is NOT an investment

I've found one of the most invaluable investment strategies to be finding a good mentor, someone successful who is willing to teach you, talk to you, advise you. Surprisingly they come about through the oddest channels sometimes but once you find them and you have an open mind you can move forward. With land is not so much belly as it is looking at what's next vs what's now, places that are hot now will always be expensive to buy and when you think you're getting into a great deal the winners have already moved on to the next one, it takes training your mind to have vision and having patience, tremendous patience.

how i summarize that above, is that it is simpler to buy something and sell it for a profit, and potentially a significant profit. all the market forces that would affect ur purchase and sale would be to a greater extent more obvious and understandable compared to those webs of the more complicated investment schemes. they usually take a part of ur investment as commission and then a part of ur profits, if u make a good decision.

the only thing that could rival simple buying and selling, is stockmarket trading. not rival the simplicity, but rival the potential to make big profit margins or losses.

Mostly I just look at what pops up on my FB newfeed from those real estate agents, never really sat and actively searched for anything, but most that I have seen were plots in gated communities. As for living vs investing, ideally I'd like to have some sort of rental property so it serves to be a source of continual passive income.
I also agree with the mentorship, but to find one is not necessarily easy and time is not on my side as of late.

As for sMASH, again, ideally, I think an adequate and competent portfolio would encompass, stock, real estate and some safer options as well, such as bonds and fixed deposits, so you have a variety of income from different areas. Also a small business might be a worthy venture, provided you can tap into a niche and move adequate stocks.

Very Difficult to get that
But if that is your budget; patience is your best friend
Need to monitor newspaper classified and Facebook . Stuff do pop up sometimes

Note: when you actually get a deal:
1) if it looks too good to be true. Then it is not true. There is a lot of people willing to con the vulnerable
2) if it is legitimate; don't waste time. Since it will be off the market very quickly. So be prepared

I'm not a financial advisor but most Caribbean financial services bodies tend to be good investments. As it's still largely state-owned, and won't do anything really risky without union cuss. So it should be pretty stable for the most part.

My thing with FCB is that, to my meagre mind, the public allocation of the stock doesn't seem to have that big a demand from investors now, so I think the price may just drop when they flood the market with additional shares for the company, especially as it's being offered within $2 of the current stock value.

@francis1979,
thank you for the advice, I'll keep my eye out for anything.

Depends on the plot size. If its an OK neighbourhood prices will be higher.

If you have a broker, you can easily buy NASDAQ, S&P, FTSE, and DOW stocks. You can also get an investment account with RBC or Scotia (maybe others) that offer a few mutual funds and index funds. You can also try to set up an online account through TD Ameritrade and bank through Belize, the Bahamas or Grand Cayman.

If you don't have property buying cash, it is very easy to buy into a fund and put in say $500 every payday. The types of funds go from very conservative to very aggressive (and risky). Some of the top performing funds have annualized yields of 40% to 70%. But you need to understand the fund and how it is managed.

good one to buy and hold on to.

4% dividends and great growth prospects


From reading the financial report Bourse JMMB is one of the worst company to buy shares .
heard from a good source the CIF ( Clico Investment Fund ) will be making a change for the good :D :D


Started buying up JMMB when it was under 40c a couple years ago. Its now within touching distance of $2.
Pretty darn good return methinks!

Currently heavy into Sagicor. Could easily double in a couple years.

All things being equal, I'd prefer SFC all the way.

BUT

All things are not being equal!

Not with the spectre of an NCBJ buyout of GHL.

So with that the case, GHL could be a great speculative buy

SFC is a very conservative entity...by culture...
Frustratingly conservative....a legacy of the mutual society.

yup, for the past couple years i'd been telling anyone who would listen to buy up JMMB. Even here I mentioned it a few times.

Folk were hesitant with it being a Jamaican company and for the most part, did not take my advice. Ironically Jamaica's economy is on the upswing.

I started buying when it was under 40c. I'll probably sell before earnings come out though. I believe its a bit overvalued right now.

I'm putting all spare $$ into SFC currently.

2NRs, I'm looking to start investing in the TTSE, but small amounts at first. Can anyone recommend a stockbroker that is patient and not condescending? I'm not looking to waste anyone's time, but I'm not a big shot yet. :lol: Trying to get there by investing among other things, hence the need for someone who isn't a snob. Can you all assist or advise accordingly? Much appreciated.
