Foreign Portfolio Update - Sold my Intel

 I sold my 23 units of Intel shares on 16 Feb 21 at USD 62.55 after holding it for 206 days. I had bought it then at a price of USD 51.75. Long term wise, Intel is likely to trade sideways with potential to go further down as their7-nanometer (7nm) production has faced delay. AMD is in a league of its own for manufacturing of nanometer chips for now and its stock price has rose more than since last year 100%.

I may purchase Intel again when it price reaches 50+ again.  

In the meantime, I am still holding on to my 2 other units, Coca Cola and IBM. on hindsight, I should have sold off Coca Cola when it was around USD 53. Will need to continue to wait.

$190.72 cash in less than 6 months from GooglePay App

In Nov, when I shared that about how I got $71.74 cash in 3 months from GooglePay App, I did not expect the amount to double to over $140 in 1.5 months. 

Now within less than 6 months of using the app, I have received $190.72. A $118.26 increase from my Nov post. 

This is around an average of $32 monthly just by sending money to each other and using the app to make payments, instead of using physical credit card. It is that easy - as easy as ABC.

There are some changes to the terms and condition to get scratch cards now, and they seems to change it every now and then, so be sure to check out the offer page:

1) Referral $3 each for Referrer and Referee 

2) Scratch cards: Pay your friends (min amount of $10, limited to 2 scratch cards per week). Your friends must be on GooglePay too. Then just pay them $10 each and get them to pay you back the same amount. 

3) Scratch cards: (i) Tap and Pay or (ii) Scan QR Code and pay (min payment amount of $10), limited to 2 scratch cards per week). Similar to how you do payWave payments over POS. Instead of using your credit card, you use your phone with GooglePay app and NFC on and tap it on the POS to make payment. For Scan QR Code, scan the payment QR code using GooglePay and make payment. It works even on M1 payment bill with QR code, Grab wallet top-up and IRAS bill payment.

Free money just take. Good things do not last forever. 

So hurry and sign up. If you need referral code, you can use this GooglePay App and get $3. 

If you are interested in other referral links or codes, you can visit this page on My Investment Machine.

My Investment Portfolio - SG (End Jan 2021)


No transactions were made in Jan 2021. 

Ironically, when I wrote about STI breaking 3,000 in December, I did not expect STI would cross 3,000 in Jan. Currently, STI went back below 3,000. It will likely continue to trade sideways. 

The last few days have been exciting with the release of financial results for companies such as Mapletree Logistics Trust, Mapletree Commercial Trust and Keppel DC Reit. More companies will be releasing their result in Feb. I am watching out for the results by DBS and OCBC on 10 Feb and 24 Feb  respectively. Their results will be announced before trading opens. 

For my dividends, I am changing the way dividends is calculated below by adding them only when they are paid out. 

Dividends received* during the month: $178.5 (Singtel)

Total dividends received in 2021: $178.5 

Average dividends per month: $14.88

Total Portfolio Market Value: $272,566.69

*Dividends are recognised after payment date. Average dividends per month is calculated by dividing the dividends received by 12 months regardless of the month. 
Portfolio excludes Singapore Savings Bonds and Foreign Stocks
