30 April 2014

Equity market performed well in the month of April, though the tension in Ukraine and news on China slow down affected the sentiment and limited the up side. Good corporate earning results helped the market to move up.

STI performed well except the last week of the month, when rising tension in Ukraine caused some sell brought down the index. Towards the end of the month, the good results reported by the 3 local banks sent market moving up again. STI closed at 3264.71 today, rising 76.09 points or 2.39% in the month. My portfolio moved in step with STI, the value rose 2.5% in the month of April.

I did not buy any stock this month since the index was already quite high. I invested in a Europe bond fund to boost my passive income. I received S$5,578 of dividend from my investment this month.

With many companies announcing their result this month, I will be receiving more dividends next month. I will look for opportunities to invest the dividend next month.
