Portfolio Update 30 November 2017

The global stock market performed quite well in November, lead by the US market. DJ index hit historical high in this month. STI moved in tandem with the global market and surged beyond 3,400 points this month. The weakness of the index in the last few trading days did not affect the bullish sentiment. When market closed today, STI stood at 3,433.54, up 59.46 points or 1.76% as compared with last month.

My portfolio, however, did not perform well in November. While the index went up 1.76%, my portfolio value drop 0.5% this month. This was due to poor performance from some of my counters like AimsampIReit, CapitaLand, KSH, Metro, Sembcorp Ind, ST Engineering, etc. Though some other counters -performed well, they were not good enough to compensate the losers. I wasn't too concern about this as the year-to-date performance of the portfolio is still good.

I received some shares from ESR-REIT, K-REIT and Fraser Commercial Trust via scrip dividend scheme. There was no other trade done this month.

This month, my total passive income from bonds, UT's and shares amounts to S$18,000. This is the fourth best month in term of dividend income.

Compulsory Acquisition of CWT shares

My CWT shares will be acquired compulsorily soon. I have had this shares for many years and have enjoyed the steady dividend payout (though the yield is not high). While I am a bit sad to part with the shares, the capital gain is more than satisfactory.

Goodbye CWT. 天下无不散之筵席。
