Blue Chip Companies in the Philippines

You can check the list of Blue Chips here:

Last week, I started investing in the Philippine stock market. So far so good, I invested in several blue chips MWC, SMPH, and MEG in which some went up and some went down. The index of Philippine Stock Exchange currently consists of the 30 major companies. I've added the list in the community wiki. These are the blue chips of the Philippines. They're relatively a better bet than other stocks because they tend to be more stable.

I gained 1.3% so far, and I believe it's still beginner's luck. 1.3% may seems small, but compared to how much a bank savings account make? Like 0.5% per year?

It was quite an experience, but I still have tons more to learn. I don't know how to read financial statements or compute the actual price/earning ratio. I need to research more about the fundamental and technical analyses. These are the two main schools of thought when it comes to investing in stocks; fundamental teaches you what to buy and technical teaches you when to buy.

I will continue to write more about my experience in the stock market soon, but as for now, I need to sleep.
