It has been an especially wild year for the markets in 2011 and our local bourse, represented by the Straits Times Index (STI), was also not spared. And if you are interested to recap some of the major events over the past year with us, do turn to page 6.

Given the volatile market, everyone is afraid to commit new money into the market and worry that what they invest today may be worth a lot less a year later while putting your money in the bank offers a very low return.

So how can investors ride out the volatility yet continue to invest with a “peace of mind?

Well, as always, this is the time of the year where we will hear market gurus taking their turns to highlight the various stocks to look out for and what investment strategies to apply.

Not to be outdone, we have assembled a portfolio consisting of 12 stocks that investors can look out for going into 2012. In this issue, we will only be revealing SIX of them while the remaining picks will be featured in our subsequent issue. Do stay tuned!

We also have an article contribution from Charlie Lau​, a veteran remisier from UOB-Kay Hian, analysing whether we would witness another global financial crisis in 2012. For those wanting to know more on how to capitalize on opportunities in 2012, Charlie Lau will be speaking at an investment seminar organized by Shares Investment at the The Black Theatre, Tampines Primary School on 8 January 2012, 2.00pm to 5.30pm (details on page 15).

The entire Shares Investment team wishes everyone a bustling year ahead with amazing profits from the stock market in 2012!
