Hi, my name is Chris Lee Susanto – you can call me Chris! I’m the Founder of Re-ThinkWealth.com (Est. 2015) – A Value Investing and Options Selling Blog and Course Founded in Singapore!
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.
“It’s pretty easy to get well-to-do slowly. But it’s not easy to get rich quick.” – Warren Buffett

Who is Re-ThinkWealth For?
For Singaporeans who have 0 experience in stock investing. And is looking to learn a way to sustainably generate & grow their income & wealth for decades to come. Believes in long-term time horizon (at least 3 years) and using only spare cash (not borrowed money) to invest. Believes that the most effective way to truly learn and apply value investing and options selling is through exclusive and effective 1:1 mentorship. Also, do not believe in getting stock tips. Instead, believe in investing time and money to learn how to make their own stock picking decision. Get started by reading our summary on The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham here.

About Chris, Founder at Re-ThinkWealth.com
I’m the founder of Re-ThinkWealth.com and The Value Investing Mentorship Club™.
I started investing in Singapore and U.S. stock market utilizing value investing & options selling strategies back when I was 21. I am glad that I started early because it helped me to accumulate the investing experience early. And that propelled me to achieve my financial freedom goals faster.
My hobbies include watching meaningful movies, eating good food (especially spicy ones!) and catching up with friends over a good cup of coffee. I also love reading. Some of my favorite books include The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham, How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie and Principles by Ray Dalio. For news source, I like CNN, Channel News Asia and Straits Times. I am also subscribed to The Wall Street Journal and read it daily.
When I was 22, I established Re-ThinkWealth.com – a blog where I often share value investing insights and options strategies. It is also an avenue for me to write down my thoughts on stock investing using value principles and to share it with like-minded friends. Because I knew that it can get hard to track our thoughts if we do not have a proper avenue to write it down at. I also share my stocks investment track records (updated quarterly) at Re-ThinkWealth.com for all to see. The reason is that I want to be remembered first and foremost as a rational investor that makes consistent money in the long run. So I am honest about my successes and mistakes.
In my free time, I guest 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, I was invited to speak on the art of value investing for students from Strategos in NUS Tembusu College and on entrepreneurship and investment for a graduating Diploma in the Business cohort at Singapore Polytechnic.
In 2018, I was invited to be a mentor in the Youth Innovation Challenge organized by Singapore Management University (SMU) Institute of Innovation & Entrepreneurship and to Singapore Polytechnic to speak to a group of graduating Banking students on How Traditional Investments Vehicle/System Will Be Further Disrupted by Fintech.
I was also featured in the NUS Investment Society Year Book in 2018 sharing about my experience applying value investing to generate above market returns. I was featured along with David Gerald, Founder, President & CEO of Securities Investors Association (SIAS, Singapore).
I am currently managing a value-focused six-figure portfolio. And my end goal is to set up a sustainable and successful equity fund focusing on value investing and options selling finding opportunities globally.
But for now, my focus is on teaching my students well through The Value Investing Mentorship Club™. Because I believe that the most effective way to teach a complex subject like value investing & options selling is through exclusive & genuine 1:1 consultation & mentorship.

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.

The stock hit fresh near 13 year low despite the company doing pretty well during the earnings call on 28 March 2018. It closes at 10.39% down. It is not an easy day for any GameStop holders (except the short sellers), from my end, I am thinking where I could have gone wrong – or is the market wrong. I am more than willing to […]read more

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 […]read more
25% of their stores have already been turned to GameStop plus format which is a 50–50 combination of games and collectibles. What is interesting here is that despite lesser space to put video games, they actually see an increase in video games sales. This got to do with the new types of customers that these […]read more
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 […]read more
