29 August 2014

August has not been a good month for share investors. STI has been in negative region (compare to end of July) the whole month. Globally, the stock market is still affected by the Middle East and East European Conflicts. European market continues to be weak but U.S. seems less affected.

As at today, STI closed at 3327.09, down 46.97 point, or 1.39% from July. My portfolio performed slightly better than STI this month, thanks to UE, whose price shot up more than 20% on talk of acquisition. Portfolio value was down 1.00% from last month, net of new funds injected.

I bought shares of Popular, LeeMetal and Cache Log Trust this month. I also participated in scrip dividend scheme from some MapletreeLog, MapletreeInd, First Reit, FraserComm, and CapitaChinaR.

The Unit trust I bought last month started to pay dividend. This boosted the total dividend income for this month to S$18,000. I think I am on track to reach my passive income target this year.

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your comment. I am not at all worrying about STI going down or up. I record it in my blog just for reference. I am investing for income.

You have an interesting blog there. And yes I am vested in Stamford Land too.

Hi,

May I ask what is your (reasonable) target for a Singapore dividend yield portfolio? 5%?

Thanks.
