When cash is not king

By

Question: I guess I have no choice but to pay taxes once my assets are transferred to my spouse and children when I move on to the next life.

Q: The stock market has been falling lately due to fears of rising inflation. My broker told me that there is risk of a further selldown in share prices because of a higher inflation outlook next year. I have invested some of my savings in stocks and I am thinking if I should get out now or buy more. Can you advise me? —Cameline Canlas by email

Question: My friend recently tipped me to buy a rarely traded stock on rumors that it is entering into a big project soon. I hesitated to buy at first, but the stock jumped so fast that the share price increased sixfold from 5 cents to 28 cents in a few days. My broker told me that it may go up further next week. I feel tempted to buy some shares since the share price does not cost too much. Should I invest?—Rachel Jinayon by e-mail
