Portfolio Update September 2017

This month has not been a good month for the local stocks, especially the index stocks. As one reader K lamented in his comment: "The government linked index stocks have been having a bad spell......." The STI has been moving southwards for the month. As at month end, STI lost 57.35 points, or 1.75% compared with last month. My portfolio performed better than the index. As as yesterday, its value dropped only 0.57% from end of August.

This month, I received some CapitaLand Retail China Trust via Scrip Dividend Scheme. Other than this I did not do any other trade. However, the M1 shares that I received last month due to the maturity of structured note now appears in my top holding list.

Total dividend received in September was S$8,669.46, half from shares, and half from UT/Bond. Total dividend received in the first 3 quarters of the year amounts to S$128,000.00. With three months to go, total dividend this year will most likely exceed that from last month.
