Portfolio Update October 2016

Market continue to move side way and slide down in October. Poor corporate earning results in third quarter, bad manufacturing data and gloomy outlook weigh on the sentiment. Coming US election and continue weakness in Chinese economy also mean uncertainty for stock market.

STI closed at 2,813.17 when market closed on 31 October, down 55.6, or 1.94% from last month. My portfolio performed below the index. It's value dropped 2.09% in this month.

YTD STI is down 2.39%. My stock portfolio (net off fund injected this year) is down 1.16% without considering the dividend received. If dividends received will taken into consideration, portfolio return a 3.23% YTD

I was busy this month with my work and some other activities and did not do any trade this month. I received some shares from Global Investment Ltd this month via Scrip Dividend Scheme.

Total dividend received this month amounts to S$8,700.00, mainly from UT. With many companies already announced the dividend paid in November and December, I am quite certain that the total dividend received this year will be about the same as last year.

Below are my top 30 share holdings as at 31 October 2016.

1.       SPH
2.       ComfortDelGro
3.       OCBC Bank

Hi Sanye

Will you be considering to add your top 2 positions in SPH and CDG now that they have fallen to around their 52 week low?

Hi B,

I am considering to add some Comfortdelgro shares but not SPH at the moment, as SPH has reach 7% of my portfolio.

hi uncle sanye,

you mentioned that you are quite certain that the total dividend this year will be the same as last year. I noted that sph occupies the top postion. Is it due to the cut in this year's sph dividend which partly cause your total dividend not to climb this year?

Hi Paul,

Not just SPH, other companies like SembCorp, SembMarine, UE, Yangzijiang...etc also reduced their dividend this year. I also rebalanced my unit trust portfolio and skewed towards bond funds with lower yield. Generally, businesses are not doing well this year, especially oil & Gas related business.

The decreased is offset by the growing portfolio size as well as dividend increase by some other counters. I am still waiting for declarations from some counters. Let's keep the fingers cross.

Comfort Delgro share price is really getting hammered. You have trust that they will turn around?

Hi K,

I don't know how the market will move in short term, as there are so much uncertainty now. In longer term ComfortDelgro should do well.

Do you think Keppel Corp will return to the price range $11 if the oil price goes back to $90 to $100 range ? However can Keppel Corp able get more contract in future ?

Hi Sanye,

I noticed that CDG's Materials and Consumables costs has been decreasing rapidly throughout the past years. Any idea on what these materials and consumables are used for in CDG's business and any insights on why these costs have been falling? Thanks.

Hi San Ye!!

Thank you for updating us constantly. May i know what is the average dividend yield that you are getting?

Hi Joe,

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I still have some "growth stock" in my portfolio and these stocks don't pay good dividend. On average I am getting 5~6% from my shares.

The Unit trust are giving me an average of 4.5~5% dividend yield. At the movement the majority of my unit trust are bond funds or high yield equity funds.

Yesterday afternoon, as the US election result unfolded, I placed two orders to buy ComfortDelgro at 2.43; and SPH at 3.70. Unfortunately the market started to recover and the prices were not reached. Missed opportunity! :)

Nera Telecommunication has declared a special dividend of 15 cents per share to be paid in November. This is part of the profit from sale of PS business.

With this extra dividend, dividend received this year will surpass that from last year. :)
