My Investment Portfolio (End May 2020)

From StocksCafe
May was a boring month. I did not make any transactions and STI is moving sideways. If STI continues to move sideways, I plan to make at least 1 more purchase before waiting to see if the bankruptcy phase comes in, during the 2nd half of the year. If it does, STI will experience another sharp drop, led by banks.

Temask has been doing national service, trying to lessen the impact of COVID19 with their various care packages, including giving face shields, masks and hand sanitizers to different groups of people. Also, trying to help (aka rescue) several companies such as SIA and the latest is Pacific International Lines. But there is a limit to how many companies they can help.

I received my largest amount of dividends in a month in my investment journey. It was partly due to my recent purchases of DBS and OCBC. I am still expecting my total dividends amount to be lower than last year. Moving forward, most Reits and Trusts will defer dividends payout as they conserve cash and maintain high capital levels. Similarly, other listed companies, even banks, will do likewise. It is just a matter of when.

Dividends received* in May 20: $2,132.84 (DBS, OCBC, Singapore Technologies Engineering, Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust)

Total dividends received in 2020: $2,748.90

Average dividends per month: $229.08

Total Portfolio Market Value: $199,074.59

*Dividends are recognised after ex-dividend (xd) date.
Average dividends per month is calculated by dividing the dividends received by 12 months regardless of the month.
Portfolio excludes Singapore Savings Bonds.
