30 November 2011

November has been a very "short" month for me in term of investment. With 2 business trips in 2 weeks plus all the preparations and meetings, there was hardly time for me to do much for the portfolio.

The stock market continue to be volatile. Euro Zone crisis casts a big shadow over the global market. Stock market went up and down on news. Due to this confusion and my busy schedule, I did not make any purchase/sell this month.

At the end of the month, STI settled at 2702, 5.3% lower than end of October. My portfolio performed slightly better, dropped only 3.95% in value. I received S$4,700 in dividend this month. Together with the dividend which I am going to receive next month, the total dividend this year will exceed the 50K target set. However, the investment as a whole still give a negative return, as the value dropped (upto today) more than the dividend received.

Given the uncertainty, I will continue to position my stock portfolio towards defensive and high dividend stocks. Blue chip and high yield stock will still be my preference.

Below are the top 30 holdings. They are still the same counters as in October, besides some postion changes.
