30 June 2014

School holidays plus football world cup, the result is a sleepy market. STI retreated in quiet market for the month, due to tensions in Iraq and Eastern Europe. STI ended for the first half of the year at 3255.67, dropped 1.22% or 40.18 points compared to last month.

Surprisingly, my portfolio performed much better than the STI. Its value dropped only 0.04% in the month, thanks to some defensive counters.

I did not make any purchase from open market this month, but received some shares from MapletreeLog Trust, Mapletree Industrial Trust, Cambridge Trust, DBS and OCBC Bank via Scrip Dividend Scheme. I sold all my Pteris this month. This has been one of the non-performing stocks in my portfolio without dividend. So when they announced the consolidation of the shares, I decided to part with the shares.  As a result of the sales there was a negative investment this month.

For the first half of the year, STI rose 2.79%. My portfolio value rose 3.92% (portfolio value minus fund injected last 6 months), slightly better.

Total dividend collected this month was S$6,866.00 from shares and UT. Below are the top 30 holdings as at 30 June 2014. There isn't much change in the list, lest some position swops, which reflects the quietness of the stock market.

The forex market is driven by interest-rates made by any of the eight global central banks. Interest rates are important to traders as the higher the rate, the more interest earned on currency invested and the bigger the profit.
