Hi, my name is Chris Lee Susanto – you can call me Chris! I’m the Founder of Re-ThinkWealth (Est. 2015) – A Value Investing and Options Selling Blog Founded in Singapore & Focused in United States Stocks.

Welcome to my humble blog! 🙂

I Specialize in profiting using mispricing based on the methodology of Value Investing and Options Selling for the U.S. stock market. And I am planning to leverage on these two methodologies to run my equity fund in the future.

What do you think value investing is? Do you think it is a sustainable method to profit from the stock market in the long run? I for one am of the belief that it is a sustainable method to profit over the long run from the stock market.

Fundamentals of a company is the life vest in the irrational world filled with speculators we often live in. Investment is most intelligent when it is most businesslike.

As of the end of Quarter 3 of 2018, he manages a Value focused U.S. stocks six-figure portfolio – making 25.84% annualized IRR since inception (March 1, 2015) from capital gains, dividends and options premiums beating the S&P 500 annualized IRR of just 13.26%. He tracks his return on a quarterly basis.

In the year 2015 at just the age of 22, he established Re-ThinkWealth.com – a blog where he often shares USA based value investing insights and options strategies.

He also guests blog in renowned U.S. fund focused investing websites such as Value Walk and Singapore investing sites such as The New Savvy, Investment Moats, Forever Financial Freedom and Dollars and Sense.

In 2017, he was invited to share his insights on the art of value investing for students from Strategos in NUS Tembusu College and on entrepreneurship and investment for a graduating Diploma in Business cohort at Singapore Polytechnic.

In 2018, he was invited to be a mentor in the Youth Innovation Challenge organised by Singapore Management University (SMU) Institute of Innovation & Entrepreneurship and to Singapore Polytechnic to talk to a group of graduating Banking students on How Traditional Investments Vehicle/System Will Be Further Disrupted by Fintech.

Investment Track Records

Equities & Options [Long-Only, Bottom-Up Approach]

Note:  The image shows the investment return performance if you have put your money in the S&P 500 and in my united states stock portfolio. They are calculated using a net asset value principle using the time-weighted factor of the deposit and withdrawal of funds (if any). It includes all realized profits from past capital gains, options premiums and dividends and current unrealized overall portfolio profit/loss.

25 February 2015 was the first day that I put in money in my US brokerage account.  The start of the tracking date of my relative annualized investment return is seven days after I first put money in my US stock portfolio brokerage account starting on 1 March 2017.

This is for ease of tracking as the S&P 500 total return tracking date starts at 1 March 2017 – and do not have 25 February 2017. I used the S&P 500 total return as a benchmark which is inclusive of capital gains and dividends.

Subsequently, the additional deposits date – an important factor in calculating the annualized investment return – are considered in counting the XIRR (relative average annual compounded gain return).

Disclaimer: The figures here are an approximation based on my personal calculation at spot exchange rate at the time of the trade and may not be 100% accurate.

What is moat in Warren Buffett’s terms & why it’s important

Moat is important because it protects a company from losing their market share easily which will erode its earnings power over time. This is important for us as investors because we would want the company we invest in to have its earnings grow over time – then the share price will follow – and not the other way round. So, we […]

Re-examining GameStop as a cigar butt stock investing opportunity

Clearly, GameStop management is aiming to reduce reliance on selling video games and pre-owned games by reducing the store counts for this two — while increasing the store counts (as you can see from the chart above) for Collectibles and Technology business (which is currently still at 5.7% and 9.5% of their overall revenue). I think that it is a step in the right direction as even though the collectibles and technology business only accounts for 15.2% of GameStop’s revenue for 2016, it accounted for 36.9% of GameStop’s total […]
