Portfolio Update 26 June 2018

I was on an overseas trip last week and had no time to check the market movement. So I have to use the last recorded numbers on 26 Jun as my June closing numbers.

STI performed badly in Jun and lost 147.31 points (up to 26 Jun) or 4.3%. My portfolio fell with the index. It's value dropped 4.45% in the same period.

I received some QAF shares via scrip dividend scheme. I bought some Astrea IV Bond from IPO. By now I know for sure that LeeMetal, Ausnet Services and Tat Hong will disappear from my portfolio eventually due to cash offer.

Total dividend received in Jun was S$11,700, 2/3 from shares and 1/3 from UT and bonds.

Portfolio Update 31 May 2018

So it was the magical month of May again. Those traders who believe in "Sell in May and stay away" and have sold their shares at the beginning of the month would have told their peers "see, I told you so....", but as a die-hard dividend investor I have not done it.

Equity market did not do well in May. Lead by US, indices dropped in May. the Malaysian election result, the Trumpf-Kim summit, US-Sino trade war etc all did not affect the market positively. As at end of May, STI dropped 185.75, or 5.14% from a month ago. My portfolio dropped less than the index. Its value decreased 2.84% for the month. I am not surprised as many counters went XD this month.

I sold my Hyflux preferential shares at the beginning of the month, at a loss of course. The loss was quite minimal as I had only a very small stake, and have been receiving 6% dividend for many years. I bought some QAF shares when its price dropped below $1, cost averaging. I also received some Fraser Commercial Trust and Keppel Reit shares through scrip dividend scheme.

On the dividend side, May has always been a "dividend month" for me. This month, I received a total of S$29,441 in dividend, the highest so far for a single month. The dividend comes mainly from shares, and a smaller portion from UT's and Bonds.

Portfolio Update 30 April 2018

Global equity market seemed to shrug off the bad news in previous month (Sino-US looming trade war, Middle East crisis, interest rate hike etc.). The positive turn of the relationship between the two Korean governments, and the good corporate earning news push the market upwards.

Good economic data boosted investors' sentiment in Singapore. STI performed very well in the month of April. As at today, STI rose 185.96 points, or 5.42% compared to last month. Unfortunately, my portfolio did not perform as well. Its value only rose 2.48% for the month.

I sold off the Xinhua Port shares obtained from Pan U spin-off. I also received some shares from Global Investment Limited through scrip dividend scheme. No other trade was done.

Total dividend received this month was S$9,918, about 60% from shares and 40% from UT. Dividend from M1 boosted dividend income in April.
