My Investment Portfolio (End Jun 2020)

Transactions made in Jun 2020:
- Bought 1,500 units of SGX at $8.24
- Bought 3,500 units of Mapletree Ind Tr at $2.72

I made 2 purchases in the month of Jun. I bought SGX as I felt that the share price was oversold after the announcement that the license agreement with MSCI will not be renewed beyond February 21. There is still 8 months before the agreement ends and SGX's management team has a proven track record. Thus far, SGX has shared a few news to make up for the shortfall in recent days. Some of the recent news include launching FTSE Taiwan Index futures on July 20 and acquiring remaining 80% of BidFX to bridge OTC and listed FX markets.

As for Mapletree Ind Tr, I bought the share the next day after the news came out that the stock will  join STI, replacing SPH on 22 Jun. Funds would typically purchase Mapletree Ind Tr in the lead up to it being added to STI. Similarly, funds would sell SPH in the lead up to its removal from STI.

I had also shared in an earlier post that I had purchase my first foreign stock, Coca-Cola Co. The foreign stock is not updated in the portfolio in this post. 

Dividends received* in Jun 20: $1,316.46 (Mapletree Ind Tr, Wilmar, Keppel Corp, Comfortdelgro, Astrea V3.85%)

My Maiden Foreign Stock Purchase: Coca-Cola Co (NYSE: KO)

After investing in the Singapore Exchange stock market for 9 years, I made my first foreign stock purchase. I procrastinated a long time and it was not an easy decision to make this purchase. There are so many foreign stocks to choose and analyse, exchange rate, withholding tax and brokerage rates to consider. 

So what did I purchase?

I bought 20 units of Coca-Cola Co (NYSE: KO) at 45.92 USD on 22 Jun. 

I am sure this Coca-Cola Co does not need any introduction as it is a 134 years old beverage company offering over 500 brands in more than 200 countries and territories. 

I am quite sure all of us have drank their product before multiple times. Their most popular brands are Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Fanta, and Sprite. Coca-Cola Co products include water, enhanced water, and sports drinks; juice, dairy, and plant-based beverages; tea and coffee; and energy drink. 

Some financial data which I pulled up leading me to purchase the stock:

PE Ratio: 19.84
P/B Ratio: 9.96
Net Margin: 26.95%
Annual EPS: $2.07
ROE: 48.92%
ROA: 11.2%
ROI: 19.98%
