Portfolio Update June 2017

This month, the equity market was quite boring with its side way movement. It went up and down like a little yo-yo. A 1.3% surge in STI on 29 June was followed by a 1% drop the next day. As a whole, STI went up 7 points for the whole month and ended at 3,226.48 on 30 June, not so bad actually.

My portfolio did a little better. It value increased only 0.82% for the month, out performed the index by 0.6%.

I sold more then half of my KSH shares when its price went beyond 0.93 and cash in a handsome profit. I also participated in scrip dividend scheme in QAF, FCOT and Keppel Reit. In total there was a net cash outflow from the portfolio this month.

Total dividend received this month amounted to S$15,436, half from shares and the other half from UT and bond.

Portfolio Update 26 May 2017

I was in China last week to participate in an event. There was no access to gmail, facebook so I was not able to complete the update there. The May account has to be closed on 26/5, and the update can only be published today.

It is the month May again, but this proved to be a different May for the index. STI ended higher this month ( or at least till today higher compared to last month), despite negative predictions from some analyst that the market needed a correction. As at today, STI closed at 3,219.42, up 1.39% from last month-end.

Unfortunate for me, my portfolio did not do as well as the index. It's value dropped 0.55% from end of April.

I was very busy with my work in May and had very little time to monitor my investment portfolio. I did not do any trade in May at all, but received some shares from Fraser Commercial Trust and Keppel Reit.

May is the "Dividend Month" for investors. My total "passive income" this month amounts to S$25,175. This comes from shares, UT and bonds.
