January 2013 continues to post high risks of nasty sell-downs for shake-outs (short term); however, worldwide markets will climb over all walls of worries in 2013 (mid-long term).
On another personal side note, the hot monies has been especially die hard fans of Emerging Markets. As properties will be hot in Asia such as Hong Kong and Singapore, it is now good in 2013 to stay invested in properties and property stocks such as Cheung Kong Holdings, Sino Land, Sun Hung Kai Properties, Henderson Land Development, Capitaland, Keppeland, City Development, Yanlord, Wing Tai, Ho Bee, Singapore Land, and UOL. These will be strong stocks in strong sectors of strong economies in 2013 and represents strong investment holdings. For international investors, besides local brokerages, these are also available in CityIndex and Igmarkets etc. International investors will benefit not only in stock appreciation but also from forex terms (Hong Kong Dollar with appreciating pressures pegged within a band and Singapore Dollar appreciation). Double gains.
