28 February 2013

The bull that had run up quite lot since late last year appeared to be a bit tired this month. Renew worry on the European crisis dampened investor sentiment. The global stock market started to consolidate and doing some yo-yo. The Italy poll result didn't help the situation. STI went up and down, but somehow range bound. It settled at 3269.95, or 10.44 (.32%) lower than last month. Corporate results were mix, while banks did well, others lik SCI, SCM reported lower profit (and lower dividend). This year's budget annoucement did not give any booster to the market, at least in the last few day.

My portfolio did slightly better than the index. Its value rose 0.33% (net). I did not do any trade this month, due to the holidays and 2 business trips. I accepted TCC's offer and sold them my F&N shares, as it was not clear at all what the Thai planned to do with F&N, now that he had acquired more than 90% of its shares. The proceed of the sale will go towards building up my "warchest" when opportunities arises.

The total dividend received this month was S$8,600 including those from F&N. I participated in the script dividend scheme of Cambidge and Mapletree trust.

Looking at the top table of the portfolio, there isn't much changes except F&N disappears. UE re-entered the list.
