Wa si CFA Candidate

Certified Financial Analyst (CFA) is a program that I found out a few years ago and I have always wanted to study it. Finally I got the chance to enroll in a part time workshop locally after returning to Malaysia and I am proud to say that I am a candidate for the level 1 exam in June this year.

CFA emphasizes a lot on the ethical investing. For example, the interest of clients always come first and we should take the last bite of any cherries.

SK Petro is almost near my 30% target and Hovid is finally showing some sign of life after hibernating for the past half a year. I suspect the renewed interest in Hovid is due to the fall in ringgit as most of it's export products are priced in USD. Heck, even Pestech and QL have broken even. Jaya Tiasa remains the problem child. Huat Fund looks like this today:
