Portfolio Update 31 MAY 2019

Equity market performed badly in May. The escalating trade tension between the two giants caused so much uncertainty in the market. Somehow this famous phrase "Sell in May and stay away" haunted the stock market again.....

STI dropped 282.44 points, or 8.31% in May. I think there were some panic selling there. My portfolio dropped with the index, but a bit less. Its value decreased by 5.07% in the same period.

I received some FCOT and Taisin shares via scrip dividend scheme. No other trade was done.

The only consolation in May was the dividend. In the month of May, I received a total of S$27,000 in dividend from shares, UT and bonds. It's bonus month again!

Portfolio Update 30 April 2019

With the hope that Sino-US trade negotiation was heading towards some kind of agreement, the equity market performed well in the month of April. STI rose with the global market. At the end of April, STI rose 196 points, or 6.14% from a month ago.

My portfolio however, did not perform as well as the index. Compared to last month, its value increased only 3.9%.

I received some Keppel Infrastructure Trust shares from subscription on right issues. I also applied for excess right and got some allotment.

Dividend received in April is low as usual. With the sales of M1 shares it went even lower this year. Minus the interest payment, passive income in April was S$2,524.

I bought some Fraser bond this month, using the proceed from the sales of Oxley bonds last month, and cash accumulated from dividend income. This will increase dividend income in six month.

Portfolio Update March 2019

I never expected so many business trips from a part-time job. Okay these trips are not so stressful but just time consuming. I was away for almost two weeks and have to go on another trip next week. So this update comes a little late.

Market sentiment was still not very good in March. The UK Brexit saga may not affect us too much, but the trade war is still weighing down the sentiment in March. As as 28 March, STI dropped 14.52 points, or 0.29% from a month ago. My portfolio performed better than the index in March. Its value rose 0.38% in March. Some heavy weight counters and REITs in my portfolio performed well last month.

I received some shares of Mapletree Logistics Trust, Mapletree Industrial Trust and Fraser Commercial Trust through scrip dividend scheme lsst month. I chose to subscribe the right issues of Keppel Infr trust also. This will be settled in April. I sold my retail bonds from Oxley, after news that their intended sales of 2 properties fails. I thing their gearing is way to high.

Total dividend received in March was S$17,200. Majority comes from bond coupon payment. For the first quarter of this year, I received more dividend from bonds than shares. This is the result of my switching to fixed income investment in the past two years.
