Portfolio Update 22 December 2017

As I will be travelling after Christmas and only be back in Singapore 30 December, I decided to do the monthly update earlier for this month.

While US stocks were moving higher in light of tax cut this month, local stocks didn't seem to have the same sentiment. Up till today, STI lose 47.83 points, or 1.39% this month. Since everyone is preparing to enjoy the well deserved year end break, I don't think much will happen next week. (personal opinion, don't hold me for it)

Compared to the index, my portfolio did better this month. Its value dropped only 0.4% compared with end November.

This month, CWT finally was de-listed. I bought it at 95 cents years ago and now sold it at S$2.33. So it was not so bad. No other transaction was done.

For the year 2017, Singapore share market has done well. The STI index gained 504.95 points, or 17.53% for the whole year. My portfolio did not perform as well. Its value rose only 10.41% for the year. That was due to poor performance of some heavy weights in it, e.g. SPH, Comfortdelgro, M1 etc. Net cash flow into the portfolio (fresh fund invested) this year was S$188,000.

Total dividend received this month was S$14,000, from stocks, bonds and UT. The full year passive income amounts to S$178,000, surpassing that from last year and exceeded my target. I have invested in a small business run by a friend and the dividend which I was supposed to receive last year was only received in January this year. If we shift the dividend to last year, then total passive income received this year would be almost the same as last year. All in all, dividend from shares has decreased this year but was compensated by dividend from bonds and UT's.

Portfolio Update 30 November 2017

The global stock market performed quite well in November, lead by the US market. DJ index hit historical high in this month. STI moved in tandem with the global market and surged beyond 3,400 points this month. The weakness of the index in the last few trading days did not affect the bullish sentiment. When market closed today, STI stood at 3,433.54, up 59.46 points or 1.76% as compared with last month.

My portfolio, however, did not perform well in November. While the index went up 1.76%, my portfolio value drop 0.5% this month. This was due to poor performance from some of my counters like AimsampIReit, CapitaLand, KSH, Metro, Sembcorp Ind, ST Engineering, etc. Though some other counters -performed well, they were not good enough to compensate the losers. I wasn't too concern about this as the year-to-date performance of the portfolio is still good.

I received some shares from ESR-REIT, K-REIT and Fraser Commercial Trust via scrip dividend scheme. There was no other trade done this month.

This month, my total passive income from bonds, UT's and shares amounts to S$18,000. This is the fourth best month in term of dividend income.

Compulsory Acquisition of CWT shares

My CWT shares will be acquired compulsorily soon. I have had this shares for many years and have enjoyed the steady dividend payout (though the yield is not high). While I am a bit sad to part with the shares, the capital gain is more than satisfactory.

Goodbye CWT. 天下无不散之筵席。
