Let’s say you now have the cash to finally start to buy shares of your chosen company listed in the Philippine Stock Market, the next big question that you need to ask is; how do you earn money in the stock market?

Before I get into that, I have to caution everyone that picking stocks in the stock market requires careful study in the company you are investing on. Here, you have to look into company’s earning and its stability and to at least figure out the direction where this company is headed to. This careful study includes either “fundamental analysis” or “technical analysis” (which I am going to discuss further in upcoming post) OR a combination of both. You must believe in the integrity of the company you are investing. For instance, if you believe that BPI (Bank of the Philippine Islands) under the conglomerate of the Ayala’s will still be there and continually grow in the next 10 years or more, then this may be a good pick for your long term investment plans. Again, choosing must not be based on gut feeling but with diligence and careful research.

Earning money in the Philippine Stock Market comes in two ways: a. Price of share appreciation/Capital Appreciation or b. through dividends.

Price appreciation or Capital Appreciation simply means an increase of the value of the stock price from the amount you bought it. As the price of stock appreciates, your profit also increases. However, you will only enjoy this gain if you sell your stock and someone is willing to buy it. If you do not sell it, the profit you make is called “unrealized gain” but when you decide to sell it, you turn your gain into cash or also called “realized gain”.

For example, if you bought 1,000 shares of Emperador (the popular liquor brand) at P9.40 and after a few hours it appreciates to P10.00 and you decide to sell it, you then earn P0.60/share x 1,000 shares = P600. I don’t know with you but for me earning P600 for a single transaction isn’t bad at all.

Notice that in the example given above, you only earned a few centavos per share or 60 cents to be exact. If you are a kind of person who has a long-term investment horizon then we are looking into a probability of an exponential increase of your investment. ANC on the Money has wonderful example for this. According to them, if you invested P100,000 in DMCI (real estate company based in Manila) and kept your money there for 10 years, your total investment could have then become P28,000,000 by 2013. This even after we experience 2007 Asian financial crises, Oakwood mutiny, stories of graft and corruption in the Arroyo Administration and many more economic debilitating news.

Nevertheless, this is not always the case. If you invested in Agrinurture INC whose share is valued at P30.00 in 2004, you will be dismayed to find out that as of June 05, 2015 it is only worth P1.378 after the company has been linked to Binay’s alleged corruption cases. Hence, Stock Market is not for gamblers. It is for people who are diligent with their research.

Another way of earning in the Philippine Stock Market is through Dividends. If a company earns profit, you get a cut from their earnings too as an investor. Normally, this cash is a profit that will not be used by the company for expansion. Dividends may be given either in a form of CASH or in the form of STOCK. Either way, this is still a passive income for you. PLDT (TEL) is a consistent-paying-dividend company. In 2014, it gave away a total of P156.00 dividend per share.

The number of shares you hold per company defines the impact of your profit to your investment. Of course, even if the stock price appreciates to 100% and yet you only hold 10 shares, your profit will still be less.

These are the ways your earn money in the Philippine Stock Market. Like the basic rule in economics, always remember to BUY LOW and SELL HIGH.

For every person there is a highly organized curriculum. The idea of the Holy Spirit. The idea that the Universe is invested in your self-actualization which is the same way of saying the Universe in invested in your own enlightenment.

God wants you to be happy, to be in light and to live in love – the kind of love that is not defected with the dogma set by your world as to what and how love must be expressed. God wants you to forgive and to be forgiven. And in our planetary journey, we come to across an experience where we both hurt and get pained that will set us up to the decision of forgiving and seeking forgiveness. Loss is not loss when properly perceive. Pain is impossible if we learn to elect to change our thoughts that hurt. There is no grief with any cause at all.

Our experience on Earth is all about life’s lessons. And all that we experience is bound with a unique and individualized curriculum for ourselves and ourselves alone. So everybody sitting somewhere, wherever you are right now, what possibly could you be doing and thinking; that’s “it”.  A lot of times people think, I want another relationship, another job or another experience in order for “it” to be happening. But it is our “being” of people that we are capable of “being” and the perfect lesson for us to practice “being” what we are capable of “being” is whatever is happening right now.

Some people will say, “Someday my path will start”. What they don’t realize is that right now they are in that path.

If you are a person who are specifically coming to this mental programming, you must ask yourself everyday, “who have you not forgiven?” or “who have you hurt?”.

The Course in Miracles says. You can have a grievance or a miracle but you cannot have both. So if you are thinking with an attack thought with someone that means your heart is blocked. And they are not suffering, but you are suffering. So do not wonder if a miracle you must have hoped for is not yet happening.

Miracle occurs as a natural expression of love. It is a shift of perception from fear to love. So as long as your heart is open in love, whatever wonderful thing that is supposed to happen will happen. But if your heart is shut, you are deflecting the miracle and the otherwise begins happening. So drenched yourself with love and see miracles to happen.

Everything is possible for him who believes. (Mark 9:23)

The “everything” mentioned here does not always come simply by asking, because God is always seeking to teach you the way of faith.

Your training for a life of faith requires many areas of learning, including the trial of faith, the discipline of faith, the patience of faith, and the courage of faith.

Often you will pass through many stages before you finally realize the result of faith – namely, THE VICTORY OF FAITH.

Genuine moral fiber is developed by enduring the disciple of faith.

When you have made your request to God, and the answer still has not come, what are you to do?

Keep on believing His Word! Never be swayed from it by what you may see of feel. Then as you stand firm, your power and experience is being developed, strengthened, and deepened.

When you remain unswayed from your stance of faith, even in view of supposed contradictions to God’s Word, you grow stronger on every front.

God will often purposely delay in giving you His answer, and in fact the delay is just as much an answer to your prayer as is the fulfillment when it comes.

He worked this way in the lives of all the great Bible character. Abraham, Moses, and Elijah were not great in the beginning but made great through the discipline of their faith. Only through that disciple were they then equipped for the work to which God had called them.

Think, for example, of Joseph, whom the Lord was training for the throne of Egypt. Psalm 105:19 (KJV) says, “The word of the Lord tried him.”

It was not the prison life with its hard beds or poor food that “tried him” but word of the Lord.” The words God spoke into his heart in his early years, concerning his elevated place of honor above his brothers, were the words that were always before him. He remained alone.

He remained alone in prison, in spite of his innocence, and watched others being released who were justly incarcerated. Yet he remembered God’s words even when every step of his career made fulfillment seem more and more impossible.

These were the times that tried his soul, but they were also times of his spiritual growth and development.

Then when word of his release from prison finally came, he was found ready and equipped for the delicate task of dealing with his wayward brothers. And he was to do so with a love and a patience only surpassed by God Himself.

No amount of persecution will try you as such as experience like these—ones in which you are required to wait on God.

Once He has spoken His promise to work, it is truly hard to wait as you see the days go by with no fulfillment. Yet it is this discipline of faith that will bring you into knowledge of God that would otherwise be impossible. 

Why are you downcast, O my soul? (Psalm 43:5)

Is there ever any reason to be downcast? Actually, there are two reasons, but only two. If we were still unbelievers, we would give a reason to be downcast; or if we have been converted but continue to live in sin, we are downcast as a consequence.

Expect for those two conditions, there is never a reason to be downcast, for everything else may be brought to God “by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving” (Phil.4:6). And through all our times of need, difficulty, and trials, we may exercise faith in the power and love of God.

“Put your hope in God” (Ps.43:5). Please remember there is never a time when we cannot hope in God, whatever our need of however great our difficulty may be. Even when our situation appears to be impossible, our work is to “hope on God”. Our hope will not be vain, and in the Lord’s own timing help will come.

Oh, the hundreds, even the thousands, of times I have found this to be true in the past twenty-six years and seven months of my life! When it seems impossible for help to come, IT DID COME, for GOD has His own unlimited resources. In ten thousands different ways, and at ten thousands different time, God’s help may come to us.

Our work is to lay our petitions before the Lord and in childlike simplicity to pour out our hearts before Him, saying,

“I do not deserve that you should hear me and answer my request, but for the sake of my precious Lord Jesus; for His sake, answer my prayer. And give me grace to wait patiently for you to grant my petition. For I believe you will do it in your own time and way.”

“For I will yet praise him!” (Ps.43:5). More prayer, more exercising of the faith, and more patient waiting leads to blessings- abundant blessings, I have found it to be true many hundreds of times, and therefore I continually say to myself, “Put your hope on God.”

Just after dinner tonight I received a not so good news. It really tempts me to sulk and be filled with self-pity. In my mind and in my heart I’ve been whispering prayers to God to help me go through it. Until I made some positive affirmations upon myself that God has answered my prayer.

That sudden pain in the gut has not really fully subsided. In fact, my mind was clouded with thoughts of despair and negative emotions.

But God has His way of doing things. I believe that when I was whispering that quite prayers to God in the bosom of my soul; GOD has sent this video for me.

I don’t know with you but I believe in divine plans. And that this is not an accident.

In this video Joyce Meyer is encouraging people – and I just feel that she is speaking to me. I honestly believe that it was God’s own making and uses this short video to encourage it.

It feels so surreal to hear a prayer that just speaks about what you really need. I am claiming it in the name of Jesus. I was touched. I wept.

Maybe you are also going through tough times right now. I wanna share this video with you and I want you to claim what is mentioned in the prayer. God will open doors for us no man can open. It is going to be a wonderful BREAKTHROUGH.

Prepare to be surprised.

IT HAS ENCOURAGED ME. I HOPE IT WILL ENCOURAGE YOU AS WELL.
