28 February2011

The political turmoil in Middle East and North Africa, coupled with inflation fear affected the stock market badly. STI showed the worst performance since the last financial meltdown. The good news is that most of the corporate results published were good. IMHO, this is not another financial crash but a correction.

STI dropped 6.25% for the month of February. My portfolio dropped 5.63%, slightly better. I did not buy much shares this month, because I was bogged down by work, and was on business trip in Europe last week. The only purchase was Cache. I received S$2,500 in dividend this month.

I will be very busy next month also. Hope that I can't squeeze some times in between my schedule to dig out some good buy. Otherwise I will just sit tight and ride through the correction wave. Below are the top 30 holdings as at 28 Feb. Not much changes except at the bottom of the table.
