My Investment Portfolio (End Nov2019)


Transactions made in Nov 2019:
-  Bought 1,200 units of Mapletree Com Tr at $2.24 during preferential offering (excess rights was alloted to other family members)

I am still waiting for an opportunity to offload my SIA shares. In the meantime, I had subscribed for the rights issue of Ascendas Reit along with excess rights! Ironically, I am building up my portfolio through rights issue and preferential offerings! 

If the market remains at this level, I will cross the $200k portfolio value in December when the Ascendas Reit rights issue application result is out. Fingers crossed.

Dividends received* in Nov 2019: $539.17 (Frasers Logistics & Industrial Trust, Singapore Post, SIA, Ascendas Reit, Ascendas Hospitality Trust, Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust)

Total dividends received in 2019: $6,731.56

Average dividends per month: $560.96

Total Portfolio Market Value: $199,505.74

My Investment Portfolio (End Oct 2019)

Transactions made in Oct 2019:
- Bought 2,600 units of Lendlease Reit at $0.88 during IPO (Was balloted 5,200 units, but allotted half to family member)
-  Bought 1,100 units Keppel DC Reit at $1.71 during preferential offering (excess rights was alloted to other family members)

I was surprised by the news of Temasek's proposal to gain control of Keppel Corp. It is good news for me since Keppel Corp is ranked number two in my stock portfolio. With the announcement, Keppel Corp overtook ST Eng to become number one. All this without me doing anything. The share price is probably going to hover around the offer price over the next 12 months, bearing unforeseen circumstances. 

In the meantime, I am looking at off loading SIA. I am expecting its share price to continue on the upward trend over the next couple of days till it announce its result and possibility when it is in CD (dividends). 


Dividends received* in Oct 2019: $111.75 (Mapletree Commercial Trust, Suntec Reit)

Total dividends received in 2019: $6,192.39

My Investment Portfolio (End Sep 2019)




No transactions were made in Sep 2019.

I applied for 50,000 units of Lendlease Global Commercial Reit’s (Lendlease Reit) IPO. If I am lucky, I could get 12,000 units (or less) depending on the ballot result and how oversubscribed it is. If I am unlucky, I will get 0 units and incur the application fee of $2. Whatever the case, the refund amount will be in time for Keppel DC’s preferential offering. What great timing.
(ps: I just found out that I got 5,200 units! Lucky me. )

Many people have written comprehensive reviews on Lendlease Reit IPO so I shall not go into those. While Lendlease Reit IPO is not fantastic, my other main reasons for buying are because (i) marjority of its business is in Singapore and (ii) its the yield and P/NAV is slightly better than those tier 1 Reits (i.e. lower P/NAV and higher yield). It has been a long time since there is a Reit IPO with marjority of its businesss in the local market. The last was Keppel DC Reit if I remember correctly and that was a few years back! In the event, Lendlease Reit underperforms, its valuation and price could be benchmarked against tier 2 Reits such as Starhill Global which is trading below NAV and has a yield of around 7%. Adding Lendlease Reit will diversify my Reit portfolio since I currently have only 1 commercial reit, which is Mapletree Commercial Trust.

Keppel DC Reit preferential offering is in early October. Its share price has rose up on the news of the acquisition which would boost the dividends and the fact that data centres industry valuations are highly due to the projected demand in data centres.

Mapletree Commercial Trust has also announced plans for private placement and preferential offering to acquire Mapletree Business City (Phase 2) (MBC II). This would mean that Mapletree Commercial will own the entire development of Mapletree Business City Development. The acquisition will provide accretion of 4% and 2.2% to the distribution per unit and net asset value.
