Market sentiment was still not very good in March. The UK Brexit saga may not affect us too much, but the trade war is still weighing down the sentiment in March. As as 28 March, STI dropped 14.52 points, or 0.29% from a month ago. My portfolio performed better than the index in March. Its value rose 0.38% in March. Some heavy weight counters and REITs in my portfolio performed well last month.
I received some shares of Mapletree Logistics Trust, Mapletree Industrial Trust and Fraser Commercial Trust through scrip dividend scheme lsst month. I chose to subscribe the right issues of Keppel Infr trust also. This will be settled in April. I sold my retail bonds from Oxley, after news that their intended sales of 2 properties fails. I thing their gearing is way to high.
Total dividend received in March was S$17,200. Majority comes from bond coupon payment. For the first quarter of this year, I received more dividend from bonds than shares. This is the result of my switching to fixed income investment in the past two years.
