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。

Portfolio Update 31 October 2017

The month October passed so far, that before I realize it, it is almost gone. I was pretty busy with my work (yes, part time job can be busy too) and other activities. I paid less attention to stock market, partly because it was in a steady uptrend due to good GDP data and corporate earnings results.

When market closed today, STI was 154.17 points, or 4.79% higher than a month ago. Some analyst said that there might be some pull back but no sign of crashing. Of course it is up to you to believe that. My portfolio somehow performed less spectacular this month compared to the index. Its value rose only 3.43% for the month. Year-to-date, my stock portfolio value has risen 12%, compared to 17% rise of the STI.

I bought some Netlink Trust shares this month. I also received shares from Cache, Mapletree Logistics Trust and CapitaLand Commercial Trust through subscription of rights issues. I "sold" all my Saizen REIT shares due to final liquidation. There is a net cash flow (S$22,630) into the portfolio, excluding dividend.

Total dividend received from my shares, UT and Bond this month amounts to S$7,823.00.

Portfolio Update September 2017

This month has not been a good month for the local stocks, especially the index stocks. As one reader K lamented in his comment: "The government linked index stocks have been having a bad spell......." The STI has been moving southwards for the month. As at month end, STI lost 57.35 points, or 1.75% compared with last month. My portfolio performed better than the index. As as yesterday, its value dropped only 0.57% from end of August.

This month, I received some CapitaLand Retail China Trust via Scrip Dividend Scheme. Other than this I did not do any other trade. However, the M1 shares that I received last month due to the maturity of structured note now appears in my top holding list.

Total dividend received in September was S$8,669.46, half from shares, and half from UT/Bond. Total dividend received in the first 3 quarters of the year amounts to S$128,000.00. With three months to go, total dividend this year will most likely exceed that from last month.
