My Investment Portfolio (End Apr 2019)

No transactions were made in Apr 2019.

STI continues to climb upwards and broke the 3,400 mark. No one can point out confidently whether it will go  to the pre-sub prime crisis level of 3,800 or go back down to 3,000 or even 2,800 levels. 

I am glad that the portfolio which I have painstakingly built up now has more reputable companies in the top five. The top 5 holdings I have now account for over 53% of my portfolio. 

At this moment I can only continue to stay invested and try to be as disciplined as possible. There are temptations to divest off some stocks, especially REITS as some of them have reached all time highs. Take for example Ascendas Reit, it has broke the $3 barrier. Mapletree Commercial Triust and Keppel DC Reit are two other examples as they are at $1.93 and $1.51 respectively. Although ST Engineering has not reach its all time high, it may break the $4 level, a level which it last traded in 2013. 

At this moment, I am monitoring SGX, SIA, Ascott Reit and Capitaland. I am also reading up on the two upcoming Singapore IPOs (i.e. ARA Hospitality Trust and Eagle Hospitality Trust).
