31 July 2014

STI rose 118.39 points, or 3.64% in the month of July, although the trading volume was not high. Market seemed to be unfazed by the regional conflicts in Ukraine and Middle East. Poll results from Indonesia did not affect the market badly, neither did the aviation accidents happened in July.

My portfolio did not perform as good as the STI. Its value rose only 1.56% in the month. Perhaps it was due to the fact that many counters went XD towards the end of the month.

I bought some Ascendas H Reit shares this month. I also received some Noble shares via scrip dividend scheme. I bought into 3 more Unit trusts: Allianz INcome & Growth Fund, BGF European Equity Income Fund and UBS Bond Fund Euro High Yield Portfolio. I received a total of S$3,980 in dividend this month.

Towards the end of the month, market showed some weakness. This may present some buying opportunities in August. This will be good as I will be able to re-invest the dividend coming next month.
