I sold off all my holdings that I got from my applications for Astrea V and VI in the past years as I wanted to switch them to Astrea 7A1 which has higher yield. Managed to get allotted with 12,000 of Astrea 7A1, of which I alloted half to myself, the other half to my wife's portfolio.

While I had expected to receive record dividends for month of May 2022, I did not expect to receive $3,414.80 dividends, an amount which was double that of May 2021. This shows how important it is to remain vested in the market no matter how high or low it goes, build on the portfolio bit by bit and be disciplined. I am really hoping the market remain as it is so that I can get at least $12.5k dividends this year. It is an important milestone for me as it would mean that my monthly dividends would exceed $1k per month (12k per annual). 

I have been watching Singapore Savings Bond (SSB) very closely in the last couple of months and am doing a reshuffling. I am currently redeeming my SSB for SBJAN19 GX19010T and SBFEB19 GX19020V. After which I plan to use part of the proceeds to apply for JUL22 SSB which opens for applications in Jun. The wonders of SSB which allows early redemption with accrued interest are stated in my previous post. You can read more here
