My Investment Portfolio (End Nov 2018)



Transactions made in Nov 2018:
- Sold 4,500 units of First Reit at $0.945
- Bought 100 units of SIA at $9.25
- Bought 1,000 units of Keppel Corp at $6.11


I broke my no transaction streak by making what appears to be 2 very weird transactions. 

Firstly, I cut loss on First Reit. I had attempted to cut loss at higher prices but both prices were not fulfilled. The reason why I cut loss was because of the liquidity issues Lippo Karawaci is facing. Lippo Karawaci is First Reit's main income contributor. With this issue, the fundamentals of why I bought First Reit has changed and this is the main reason why I cut loss since the reason why I bought it no longer exists. 

Is this the right decision? I really do not know. Only time will tell. Ironically, not too long after I cut loss, the price went up to slightly above $1, the price which I attempted to cut loss. But well, this is life. It never goes the way you thought it will pen out. 

For my second transaction, you will be wondering why I bought 100 units of SIA. Well, I had keyed in a bigger order and queued at $9.25. But well, nothing goes the way I wanted. Only 100 of the order was fulfilled. Which is a small percentage of my order and I had to incur the minimum commission fee. =(

As for my third transaction, I increased my stake in Keppel Corp as I wanted to deploy some funds that were from the sales of First Reit and this year's dividends. With this purchase, Keppel Corp has now overtaken ST Engineering and is now my top holding.

The recent prices are tempting and I really have no idea whether the prices are heading south or north in the short term. But well, I am still looking out for other opportunities to purchase other shares. 

Stay calm and invest on!

My Investment Portfolio (End Oct 2018)


Although there was no transactions made in Oct 2018, it was an exciting month. The stock market seems to be more bearish and this presents buying opportunity. I have some purchase orders and 1 sell order in the queue. Not sure if I will manage to get those purchase orders as I have keyed in a lower price since I am on the cautious end and do not know how low the stocks will go. Also, considering the fact that I have limited warchest.

If the market goes up, I am still happy, since I am already vested in the following shares above.

Stay calm and invest on everyone! The stocks will go up in the long term!

My Investment Portfolio (End Sep 2018)



It has been a relatively quite month in Sep. I did not make any transactions and there was no interesting corporate news. The usual noises were the potential trade war (some view it as trade war already) between USA and China. 

Interestingly, the last week of Sep became more exciting with news that Keppel and SPH plans to buy the rest of M1 that they do not own at $2.06 per share. 

Dividends received* in Sep 2018: $108.75 (Ascendas Reit)

Total dividends received in 2018: $5,941.97

Average dividends per month: $495.16

Total Portfolio Market Value: $164,632.16
