I'm updating the Aug transactions a bit early as I don't foresee much activities going on as I will be focusing on the earnings instead, in particular my top few position, Comfortdelgro and Guocoland.



I divested my positions in Singtel and Capitamall Trust as part of the plan right before they went ex-dividend at $3.91 and $2.03 respectively. As you can see, I divested them a bit early and missed out on the dividend but they were all along part of the plan to move in and out to lock in the gains first.

From the buy side, I managed to initiate a new position in Guocoland which I blogged over here. I think given the strong run up in leading developers like Capitaland, CDL and UOL and having reported good results, we'll probably see more upside for developers. I am hoping Guocoland will follow suit over time being a lagger.

I also increased my position further in M1 at $1.785 after seeing their price stabilize after going ex-dividend. I think the outlook is still rather grim but I think we'll still see some sort of value there from valuations point of view and that's where I am putting my bet on it. In terms of results, I think it's not totally unexpected with a fall in ARPU but I thought volume and customer base remained good overall.

On CDLHT, I managed to ballot for excess shares and I received 2,000 excess shares at a price of $1.28 which I thought its decent. I think hospitality will see it bottoming this year but valuation wise it's no longer as attractive as previously I had last year so I am reducing this portion. Still with a base of 24,000 shares, I am going to hold it out for any further upside.

Net Worth Portfolio

The portfolio has gone back on track into the right direction from the previous month of $608,501 to $612,564 (+0.6% month on month; + 39.2% year on year). This portion includes capital injection.

As much I'm happy that the equities portfolio has gone in the right direction again, it is the cashflow that matters much to me. I think it'll be a lot less given I'm not putting my money more into companies which gives a lower payout.

In terms of warchest, not much is left but a decent amount to add on to any opportunities for now.




Child Portfolio 1 (Age: 3 years and 4 months)

I also divested my child's portfolio and Singtel and added a bit of the amount there in Comfortdelgro at $2.30 as I see some value out there over the longer term. The portfolio has now crossed over the $15k mark, which is a new record high so far.

Invest Fair 2017

On some other news, I was kindly invited to be one of the panelist in the Sunday Invest Fair 2017 together with fellow bloggers Jes (http://simplyjesme.blogspot.sg/), Alison (https://heartlandboy.com) and Kenny (http://mystocksinvesting.com). 


Mark (Moderator), Alison, Jes, Me, Kenny

The topics were on "Investing in our 20s, 30s and 40s". I thought crowd attendance was excellent considering it was the earliest event in the morning and we thought it wouldn't have so much crowd. Still, it was too bad time was short so much cannot explain in detail and I hope the crowd goes home getting something out there.


I also had the chance to drop by Investing Note and had a little chat in the morning with the owner, Shanison. It's great to know their plans and how their platform can help reach out more to the community.



Thanks for reading.

  3. For long term investment, i will think Singtel is much better than M1.

      In terms of returns, Singtel doesnt perform well either over the past 10 years. M1 did worse probably and especially if you get it at its high.

      Unfortunately you'd have to keep it under your name until he turns 18 later.

  6. Hi B,
    Thank you for sharing. For your capital injection, is it fixed amount every month? Sources come from salary and dividends?
    Best regards,

    1. Hi Jinglebell

      The amount is not fixed I'm usually guilty of using the money to organize our next traveling plan. I could have been more aggressive with savings but I think im comfortable at this rate. Its usually just a minor thousand plus per month these days but the dividend does help a lot to boost up.
