Philippine Stocks That You Should Buy For Long-Term Investment

Posted by Fitz Villafuerte under Investing on January 28, 2015

The stock market is one of the best places to invest your money for the long-term.

When I say long-term, that means you should be willing to let your money “sleep” and grow for at least 5 years or more – the longer, the better.

Also, if you cannot commit to study and time the stock market, then the best investing strategy is to do cost averaging, and these Philippine stocks should be your top buys, as recommended by my stock broker COL Financial.

But before any else!

You have to understand that investing in the stock market are only for those who are already well-informed about how it works, and more importantly – those who already have proper financial protection.

  1. DongW140 says:

    Sir,

    Why MER Meralco not included in your list?

    Thanks,
    Dong

  2. Rose says:

    Thanks Ftiz. I have most of the stocks listed since I join COL 4 years ago 🙂 and Im happy with the results!

  3. starlight says:

    Some of the above stocks are trading at a very high price. BPI and Jollibee are very expensive now. There must be some supporting data to validate that these are indeed good stock to buy.

  4. ombra usman says:

    Good informations… Almost i have that stocks..thank you.

  5. joshua says:

    I’m reading lots of information regarding stocks because I want to be knowledgeable enough to start investing. My concern is can you give more detail or any analytical basis of company mentioned above. Thanks

  6. Jan says:

    EDC is playing quite well

  7. Fitz says:

    @DongW140
    The list is from the stock analysts in COL Financial, so I don’t know the reason why they didn’t include MER.

    Personally, I think it’s because MER has not been aggressive with their growth and just being complacent with their monopoly in Metro Manila, unlike other companies in the list which has been public about their various plans for growth and expansion.

    @starlight
    These stocks are for long-term investments, specifically for those who would like to do passive cost averaging.

    Indeed BPI and JFC are very expensive now – but that’s from a stock trader’s perspective. For a long-term investor who are buying and holding the stocks for many years, it’s the earnings and growth potential of the company that matters the most.

    For example, JFC is expanding in more Asian countries in the next few years. This can usher higher income for the company. So in the long-term, the price can go up beyond what it is now.

    Of course, if you have the skills to analyze, and the time to monitor prices regularly so you can buy on the dips, then you should do that for better profit.

    @joshua
    These companies are for investing, not trading. When you read information about the stock market, always discern if they’re talking about stock trading or stock investing.

    From the stock analysts of COL Financial, whom these information came from, these stocks were chosen based on the G.E.M.S.S. criteria.

    G – Growing Industry
    E – Earnings Visibility and Predictability
    M – Management Credibility
    S – Superior Products and Services
    S – Strong Balance Sheet

  8. Marhgil says:

    I’m on COL and I still follow their “Buy Below” price on their Investment Guide when adding stocks to my portfolio. Kapag mas mahal yung current price, I just skip buying it. Hindi naman nawawalan ng stocks with price below their “Buy Below” suggestions.

  9. Thanks for this guide Fitz! I’ve never invested in stocks before but definitely am interested. Do you have to buy stocks regularly or could you just invest once and wait for 5 years or so?

  10. alma mapoy says:

    I Want to buy in bdo or jollibee

  11. Kiel Villamin says:

    Why is SCC not part of your list??? Their capital gains are great plus their dividend payments are above average??

  12. Fitz says:

    @Karl
    You can invest once and wait for 5 years. If you’re doing this, make sure that you buy when the market is low.

    @Kiel
    That is a question to ask the analysts at COL Financial who made this list. If you believe that SCC is fundamentally strong in the long-term, then you can also buy that stock.

    Personally, I think it’s because DMC is already in the list. So any good news for SCC will most likely reflect on the price of DMC anyway.

  13. good things for me because Aboitiz Power, DMCI, Manila Water Co, Semirara Mining Co is already a BIG part of my investments but i wonder why San Miguel Corp, is not mentioned in the list also Jollibee and Metrobank will be added on my investment list.

  14. the Icon says:

    Bat wala ang CEB? Does it mean nde sya maganda for a long term?

    Just recently invested selected equities fund with insular for a minimum of 10k for 10 most liquid companies such as ayala land, sm, pldt, bdo, bpi, universal robina for 1.00 per unit…

  18. Allan says:

    Hi Fitz, I’d like to raise the same question as Noel Ocampo, why SMC is not included in the list? Any thoughts on this?

  19. June says:

    This is the EIP list of COL Financial. Good selection for those starting out and for long term investing. The same list I use back then when I started investing. By suggesting a list of stocks to begin with, it might somehow reduce analysis paralysis and procrastination, especially for beginners who have no idea on what good first stock to buy.

  20. justbemitch says:

    as a beginner,how to buy stocks from the above list?..thanks

  21. Gie says:

    Hi Mitch,

    You need to open a trading account from a stock broker company such as COL FInancial, FirstMetroSec, or BPI.

    Please check the link below on how to open a trading account from COL Financial below:

    Happy Investing!

  22. chris says:

    HI FITZ!

    Do you follow the buy below price of this stocks which is provided by COL?
    Or you just buy them whatever the price is?

    Thanks and more power!

  23. Paul says:

    Hi, Fitz!

    I just want to ask, is it possible to form a company which buys shares of other companies without the need of forming a partnership/corporation? Thanks!

    Paul

  24. Fitz says:

    @Chris
    I just buy whatever the price is – pure cost averaging strategy.

    Buying at buy below price is part of the strategic averaging method, which the members of Truly Rich Club does.

    Either strategy is good actually, a friend does SAM and his port gains are just a little bit better than mine – higher than 2-3% only.

    @Paul
    Yes, that’s possible.

    I have a question regarding my strategy… do you think it is great If I buy ALI,BDO,SMPH,JFC,URC alternately every 3 months or is it advisable that I lessen the stocks I will buy? Because I’m planning to save 2k every month. Thank you in advance.

  35. Fitz says:

    @Christian
    You’re buying too many stocks with little money. Choose two and buy them alternately. That is, 2k of Stock A in Month 1, then 2k of Stock B in Month 2, then 2k of Stock A again in Month 3, and so on.

    I finally have capital to start investing. 300000 to start. Will it be wise to buy 3 different stocks on different sectors lets say 100000 on each, or buy it on 1 stock and hold it for a while. Then sell when the stock goes up and then start again?
    Any recommendation of 3 stocks I should buy.
    Thanks
