28 June 2013

The month June has been an unpleasant one. The global stock market was hit by news that US would scaled back the QE program and some bad news from China. Singapore market was not spared and went into correction mode. Some even fear the bear is back.

Market corrected quite a fair bid, depite some rebounds in between. As at month end, STI drop 161 points, or 4.86% compared with end of May. The value of my portfolio dropped 4.04% in the month, almost in line with the index.

As the market corrected, I felt that buying opportunities may appear. Unfortunately I was kept very busy from my job/business trip that I did not make any buying. I received shares of CIT, Mapletree Ind, AimsampIreit and AscendasHreit, all via script dividend scheme.

I received a total of S$5,820 in dividend this month. I shall look for good opportunity to reinvest them.

Below are the top 30 holdings as at 28 June 2013. There is not much change except at the bottom, where Cambridge and AscttReit replace CWT and Globalinv.
