31 December 2008

2008 finally comes to the end. What a year of volatility. With the beginning of a new year, let's hope things (investment) will turn out better.

The market seems to be less volatile in December. The top ten counters in my portfolio had little movement, except DBS. It dropped off the top ten list because I sold half of my holding ( 1 lot only lah, talk BIG).

As compared to end of November, my portfolio rose by S$11,268 (incl the proceed from selling the 1000 DBS shares). It stands at S$338,670 as at 31 December. As compared to a year ago, this is a 38% drop. Of course the actual lost is more than this, because I injected S$175,790 in 2008. Including this, total lost in 2008 amounted to S$371,671, or 52%.

I received cash dividend of S$3,166.49 in December. Total cash dividend received in 2008 amounts to S$23,700.
