We Believe in the Long-Term Economic Miracle of the Philippines—No Matter What Happens in 2017!

Did you love the stock market in 2016?

I did. Biggest reason? It went on “sale” the past

few months, selling us great companies at very low prices.


And we’re very excited for 2017 for the same

reason: Because we believe that this “Sale Season”

will last a little longer (Perhaps four more months? Six

more?). The longer it stays depressed, the better for us

long-term investors.

But we believe the Philippine economic story is still

intact, no matter what will happen in 2017.

Here are some of the reasons given by Caylum

Institute (the only stock trading school we’ll ever

recommend) on why we remain believers in the Philippine

economic story:

1. The Philippine economy is transitioning from

consumption to investment-led growth. P3.3 Trillion

of savings are in the banks, waiting to be used for

investment. (And the TrulyRichClub is moving people to

make this transition.)

2. If the infrastructure projects of the DU30

administration is executed properly, this will have a

massive impact on our economy. Note that we also have

a liquid banking system that can finance these projects.

3. The Philippine labor costs are still competitive

versus the region—attracting more investments. The

BPOs (call centers, etc.) are still strong despite calls of

Trump to bring them back to America—because they

can’t afford it. They pay $2/hour here vs. $10/hour over


4. But the biggest reason is our demographic sweet

spot: Our average age is 24. In contrast, the average age

in Japan is 47. This is the reason why Japan’s economy has

been stagnant for the past 20 years. But any country that

has a majority of its young population entering the work

force will bring that country into its most progressive

years. That’s us!

There are a few other reasons, but you can read

more about them in our next issues.

The most important thing is to remain faithful to

your investment program. Keep buying the SAM Stocks

at this beautiful “extended” sale season. One day, your

favorite companies will bounce back—so enjoy the sale

while it’s there.
