Portfolio Update December 2016


The month of December 2016 was not very eventful in the financial market. US Fed finally raised the interest rate for a second time in December, but the rate hike was largely expected and did not create big market swing. Trading volume in SGX was thin as many traders were on holiday.

STI closed at 2880.76 on 30 December, dropped 23.26 points, or 0.8% for the month. My portfolio performed "badly" compared with the index. Its value dropped 1.32% in December. Quite a few counters including REITs performed badly in this month.

This month, I received subscribed to the right issue from ASL Marine and received some shares. There was no other trade done.

Total dividend received in December was S$12,430.00.

Below are the top 30 holdings as at 30 December 2016.

Overall my investment did not perform well in 2016. While STI was flat for the whole year (dropped 0.07%), my portfolio value dropped 3.12% for the year, net off fresh fund injected and without taking dividend into consideration. When dividend received is taken into consideration, my stock portfolio made a positive return of +2.5%.

Total dividend received in 2016 was S$153,273.68, 58% from shares, 40% from UT and 2% from Bond.  The chart below shows dividend received in each month.



Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous 2017.

Portfolio Update 30 Nov 2016

I have to apologise for the late update to my portfolio. I was not in Singapore last week and was unable to do so.

Anyway, the biggest news and surprise in November must have been the US election result. Donald Trump's victory caused big swings in the global financial market. But market eventually came to term with the new US president-elect, and recovered the initial loss.

STI recovered from the initial loss and went into a small rally towards the end of November. On 30 November, STI closed at 2904.02, up 90.15 points, or 3.2% from last month. Unfortunately, my portfolio did not keep up with the index. Its value drop 0.62% from last month, net of fund injected.

I bought some shares of Suntec Reit, Capital Commercial Trust and Starhub in November. I also received shares from Keppel Reit, Fraser Commercial Trust and First Reit via Scrip Dividend Scheme. Total fund injected into the portfolio was S$22,078.70.

Dividend received in November was a stellar S$17,200.00. This includes the special dividend from Nera Telecommunication, which is actually return of capital (share price dropped).

Below are the top 30 holdings as at 30 November. Suntec Reit enter the list, replacing Ascendas HT.

Portfolio Update October 2016

Market continue to move side way and slide down in October. Poor corporate earning results in third quarter, bad manufacturing data and gloomy outlook weigh on the sentiment. Coming US election and continue weakness in Chinese economy also mean uncertainty for stock market.

STI closed at 2,813.17 when market closed on 31 October, down 55.6, or 1.94% from last month. My portfolio performed below the index. It's value dropped 2.09% in this month.

YTD STI is down 2.39%. My stock portfolio (net off fund injected this year) is down 1.16% without considering the dividend received. If dividends received will taken into consideration, portfolio return a 3.23% YTD

I was busy this month with my work and some other activities and did not do any trade this month. I received some shares from Global Investment Ltd this month via Scrip Dividend Scheme.

Total dividend received this month amounts to S$8,700.00, mainly from UT. With many companies already announced the dividend paid in November and December, I am quite certain that the total dividend received this year will be about the same as last year.
