  1. i am a bit puzzled
    quite a portion of your monies go into buying US stocks for dividend?
    there’s a 30% US tax which will eat into your dividend income
    any particular reason?

      Hi Jimmy,
      Not all my shares are for dividend income. My US stocks are mainly for capital appreciation purposes.

      Hi Beat NASDAQ,

      thanks for dropping by :).
      Don’t understand the question. Is it too diversified or not diversified?

      • With 64% of the portfolio concentrated in Starhub I would assume the other poster meant that the portfolio is not very diversified. Past performance of Starhub is good, but the high exposure to this single stock is a bit of a gamble.

        Looking at some macro trends I would be a bit worried about Starhub. These trends include 2 new telcos arriving in Singapore (Circles.life and Myrepublic), Netflix and internet companies challenging the cable TV business as well as the opening up of the fiber internet market to other companies like Myrepublic.

        Considering the high dividend yield of 5.76%/year at the current price I can see the appeal. The key consideration will be if the dividend premium over the STI ETF (yielding 3.3%/year currently) is worth taking on the additional risk.

        No wrong and right answer here, but a personal decision an investor would need to make.

  2. Hi, may I ask if you sell the US stocks, will it be subjected to 30% tax as well? I am not sure how US tax works. Thanks!

      Hi New,
      No. 30% tax is only applicable for dividends. Hope this helps.
