31 October 2014

The equity market experienced some turbulence in the first half of the month. This was due to several bad news: Weak economics data from Europe and China, conflict in ME with Isis, Ebola scares, protest in Hong Kong... etc. By the middle of the month STI dropped more than 100 points.

Indices recovered, however, in the 2nd half of the month. STI closed today at 3274.25, recovering almost all losses from the first half. My portfolio did slightly better. It's value rose 0.33% for the month.

I took advantage of the price drop and bought into OUE, Stamford Land, Amara, Transpac, Midas and Metro this month. I also received some OCBC shares through Scrip Div Scheme. Total dividend received was S$6,587 from shares and UT.

Below are the top 30 holdings as at 31 October. OUE is a new member in my portfolio. It replaces Pan United.
