StocksCafe is a great tool to track and monitor your portfolio, discover interesting stocks, and understand the companies behind the stocks.

Benefits of StocksCafe

1) Track & monitor portfolio
With StocksCafe you can measure and understand the true performance of your portfolio.

StocksCafe is one of the best portfolio management tools available for the Singapore market. Besides having the standard metrics for portfolios such as P&L, beta and cost breakdown, the risk of a portfolio is also calculated.

Key monitoring tools include Alerts and Market Update emails. These emails allow you to easily keep track of your portfolio, your watchlist, and the market in general.

Personally, for me, as I have a dividend and Singapore Saving Bond portfolio, I find it extremely useful for me in tracking the upcoming / projected dividend and bond interest payouts, tabulating the dividend and interest received (and comparing it to previous months or years) as I slowly snowball my dividend machine. There is also an email alert tool to inform you of your dividend payouts.

Read here. You can enjoy the full benefits and features of StocksCafe by being a Global Friend of StocksCafe, but fees apply (read here).

The Hack

No… Not using your CDC vouchers. :p

Actually, there are hacks to lower such fees to be a Global Friend of StocksCafe and enjoy the full feature of StocksCafe.

Evan Koh, the founder of StocksCafe is always finding partners to collaborate so that they pay for it and you can use StocksCafe for “free” (usually by trying out their products). A win-win proposal.

For people who are not yet Friends of Stockscafe or have not registered with StocksCafe.

Technically, they can get 5 years and 4 months of Global Friend of StocksCafe, with just S$2 (originally worth SGD 237); provided that they are not already registered with some of the below-mentioned low-cost brokerages. Then again, for all brokerages, it is perfectly fine to ask your friends/families to sign up and claim the benefits as long as they are willing to give the benefits (eg. StocksCafe Subscription) to you.

Below is what I found out after checking with Evan.

Via Referral

1. If they sign up using a referral link to be Trial Global Friend of StocksCafe and test out all features for free for one month. You can use my referral code: apenquotes. Just click here

This should be the first step before you do the below mentioned; to get that one more extra free month.


2. If they sign up with Moomoo using the StocksCafe referral link and fund their Moomoo account (with at least S$100), to get 2 years of Global Friend of StocksCafe subscription. (read here)

Note: This promotion is until 28 Feb 2023.

Moreover, you can withdraw the S$100 from your Moomoo account once Moomoo account is successfully funded and you have obtained the 2 years of Global Friend of StocksCafe subscription. Of course, I do not recommend that as you should at least try out Moomoo a bit. 

Anyway, with the withdrawal, technically, your eventual cost outlay here is $0.


3. If they sign up with WeBull via StocksCafe referral link and fund their account with at least SGD 1 and keep their account for 30 days to get USD 50 to 500 worth of shares (into your Webull account) and 2+1 years of Global Friend of StocksCafe subscription. (read here)

Note: This promotion is until 28 Feb 2023. Next month onwards (March 2023), likely will drop to about 1 year.

Tiger Brokers

4. If they sign up with Tiger Brokers using the StocksCafe link, and fund it with S$1, they will 3 months of Global Friend of StocksCafe. (read here)

Note: This promotion is until 31 Dec 2023.

Well, 3 to 5+ years is a good enough period to thoroughly monitor and back-test your portfolio with unlimited transactions. You also now have a powerful tool to check out the stocks you are interested in (full access to the screener and stock financials). And you can set up multiple portfolios (could be your family members’ portfolios), and track them separately too.

While keeping track of the dividend income (past, present, anticipated).

All these by being a Global Friend of StocksCafe, a paid subscription service that is almost free (via the above-mentioned). In addition, you also get free shares by signing up (via StocksCafe) with Moomoo and WeBull during the period.

At one time, I do enjoy tracking my income and portfolio. Keying in the dividends and bond interest payments. While researching stocks and reading news. However, over the years as the portfolio gets bigger and diversified with more stock holdings, bonds, T-bills (and the occasional covered call options and crypto), it becomes quite time-consuming. So in a way, StocksCafe does help me save time and effort. From time to time, I can also look at the time-weighted returns and XIRR performance of the various portfolios via a few clicks of the buttons. In gist, offload the hard work of tracking and leave me with more time to research and read the news.
