My Investment Portfolio - SG (End Oct 2023)


Transactions made:

- Added 2,500 units of CapitaLand Integrated Commercial Trust at $1.77
- Added 2,000 units of CapLand Ascendas Reit at $2.53

My portfolio turned red on 19 Oct 2023 and it was the signal for me to purchase something, especially if the stock is fundamentally sounded. Hence, I nibbled on Ascendas Reit on 20 Oct. I am so grateful that I am using stockcafe as it allowed me to easily track my portfolio on a daily basis (e.g. when my portfolio turn red or green, how red or green it is, track dividends, payout of dividends). 

I had also added CapitaLand Integrated Commercial Trust (CICT) on 6 Oct. Ironically, last month, I had also purchased CICT on the 6th of the month too. I am now on a buying spree, having made three transactions since September. I have so many stocks that I want to nibble on. But I must maintain discipline to pace myself out since I do not know how low the Reits will go. Even if Reits start going up and I have not further nibble on it, it is fine. There will always be opportunities. I am quite clear that I will never be able to time the market (i.e. sell at the highest and buy at the lowest).

A shout-out for Singapore Savings Bond, this month's batch is the 2nd highest in terms of overall yield in SSB history. I am definitely going to apply for it using my wife's warchest. I may even apply for it using 2 CDP accounts. As usual, I will decide only on the last couple of days before the deadline so that I can have a rough sensing on whether the next batch of SSB's yield would be higher.
