Portfolio Update 26 May 2017

I was in China last week to participate in an event. There was no access to gmail, facebook so I was not able to complete the update there. The May account has to be closed on 26/5, and the update can only be published today.

It is the month May again, but this proved to be a different May for the index. STI ended higher this month ( or at least till today higher compared to last month), despite negative predictions from some analyst that the market needed a correction. As at today, STI closed at 3,219.42, up 1.39% from last month-end.

Unfortunate for me, my portfolio did not do as well as the index. It's value dropped 0.55% from end of April.

I was very busy with my work in May and had very little time to monitor my investment portfolio. I did not do any trade in May at all, but received some shares from Fraser Commercial Trust and Keppel Reit.

May is the "Dividend Month" for investors. My total "passive income" this month amounts to S$25,175. This comes from shares, UT and bonds.

Portfolio Update 31 March 2017

The upwards trending of the global equity market continues in the month of March, despite the Korean crisis, East and South China sea tension, President Trump's setback in the pushing of some of his policies etc. Analysts are saying that a correction is necessary, but it just had not happen.

Compared with a month ago, STI rose 78 points, or 2.54%. Year to date, the STI has climb 10.22%, or 294.35 points for the first quarter. My portfolio move in almost in line with the index, just at a slightly slower pace. As at 31 March, its value rose 2.42% compared to end February.

This month, I bought some IREIT Global and added some Lippo Mall Trust shares. I added some shares from Capital Retail China Trust and Fraser Commercial Trust shares through scrip dividend scheme. I also participated in the right issue from Ascott Residence Trust. I sold away all my shares in Raffles Education and Noble Group. Both are under performers in my portfolio. The net cash flow into my portfolio this month is S$10,692.57.

Total dividend received this month was S$7,374.00, from both shares and UT.
