Transactions made in May 2019:
- Bought 1,000 units of Capitaland at $3.50
- Bought 800 units of SIA at $9.38
Just last Month, STI broke 3,400 level. Within a span of one month, STI has fallen to mid 3,100 level all because of one man, Donald Trump. From news of a possible trade deal between USA and China to news that the talks broke down.
While these were happening, I bought SIA and Capitaland. I still have 2 more other orders yet to be fulfilled. The month of June will be exciting as it will give stronger signals on whether the bears has taken over. After all it has been more than 10 years since the last recession.
In terms of dividends received, I received less dividends this month compared to a year ago. This is mainly because I divested Netlink Trust and failed to invest its proceedings into another stock in a timely manner. At this rate, I may face a decrease in total dividends this year compared to last year.
For OCBC and Raffles Medical, there maybe slight adjustments to the dividends received as I may opt for scrip dividends.
