EARNINGS don't represent actual cash that comes into the company. Cash flow does.

EARNINGS are more easily manipulated by savvy CFOs and CEOs Earnings contain all kinds of non-cash expenses. Things like depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation are expenses that affect earnings, but do not impact cash flow.

CASH FLOW is a more accurate representation of a company's performance. Dividend investors will like to see that companies have ample cash flow to pay the dividend.

To calculate cash flow per share:
You'll find a company's cash flow reported on its statement of cash flows. Divide it by the number of shares outstanding (found on the income statement) to figure out what the cash flow per share is. Then, just like the P/E calculation, you divide the price of the stock by the cash flow per share.

My last contribution for my SRS account was in 2014, total contribution stayed at $84k. Altogether I had withdrawn $170k from my SRS account. $110k withdraw previously. Last year withdraw $40k and this year $20k.

My shares in my SRS account plus cash balance as at end August 2017 add up to $138,800.

Since end August 2015 I had sold off Cordlife shares. I had bought into Trendlines. My stocks holding in my SRS account are as following:

Hai Leck - 42,500 shares
Hai Leck share price was affected by low oil price as its depends on oil and gas business. The company is still profitable, cash-rich and debt-free. Dividend paid out last year - 5 cents. (3 cents special dividend)

Straco – 90,000 shares
Straco a cash-generating machine.

Trendlines – 109,800 shares
A key catalyst for the stock price would be exits and the resulting dividend payouts. Exits will pick up pace given that within Trendlines' expanding portfolio of companies, more start-ups will reach higher levels of business development. Trendlines expect to receive royalty payments to stream in from 1H 2018.

Valuetronic – 20,800 shares
Valuetronic is back on growth path in revenue and profit.

Dow Jones had hit all time record high of 25,295. ST Index hit 3,500, 2.5 years high. Market investors certainly sense that 2018 will see a continuation of a global "Goldilocks economy". Why?

There is little evidence of increasing inflationary pressures. Interest rates are likely to remain at close to historically low levels.

Crude oil price increase above US$60 which is profitable for oil relate business & supporting economic activities.

There is the gentle recovery in economic growth and increasing demand for companies products across the major drivers of the world economy - Japan and the Asian emerging markets; the Eurozone and, most importantly, America.

There is the continuing stable expansion of the China economy.

During 2015 and early 2016 the rapid stock market suddenly sell-offs led by the precipitate collapse of the Chinese markets. So this round we need to be at our most vigilant.

For now, the bulls are in charge and the bears are quiet.
