You Should Probably Do This Now Too!

Hi, I am back.  I was finding inspiration from my chats with my members of the Fundamental Scorecard Telegram Group. There were some but it wasn't great inspiration. So I continued to do my YouTube Videos instead. Yes, I have a YouTube Channel . Please subscribe, like the videos and comment! However, a recent comment stating that I was clever, made me happy enough and provided enough inspiration! Haha...

As I quote and edited some of my words from the Telegram Group: "No. This is a bit different when I sold all my starhill reits. REITs business, in my opinion, is only 1 way. Thru Rental. So at that time when lockdown happens, I think for very long, then I decided to sell. For a bank, bad times and good times, there are ways to earn. Is only how much. Plus provision is expected. Maybe another point is core competencies.  I work in Financial institution all my life. So I do know how they work. Another point is at that time, I was wondering if the opportunity cost for holding starhill is high. You see in the lockdown if I deploy funds to US, I will
