    SG Stock - 7 Jan 2018

    Total Dividend Collected between Jan – Dec 2017 : SGD $ 27,296.13. 

    Total Profit/Loss from Sales of Stock between Jan – Dec 2017 : SGD 120,423.21

    This quarter, I added some Tencent, Intel and Alibaba during the minor market dip. Sold off the remaining Starhub shares (Profit : $20,032.63) when the CEO resigned. 

    What a year 2017 ! Crazy paper gains from my US portfolio. Expected disappointing dividend returns due to the sales of Starhub for my SG portfolio. Looks like I have to review and relook into my passive income investment strategy. I will probably keep more cash now and wait for a better market timing to rebuild my passive income. Thus, 2018’s dividend income would probably be a disaster.

    A shoutout to feedspot for nominating my blog as “Top 100 Singapore Blogs and Websites for Singaporeans”. To be honest, I have been lazy in my blogging in the past year.  However, whenever I thought of quitting, I will get a gentle private nudge from readers to check whether I am still alive ;-). That actually moved and motivated me to continue. Thank you to all who have reached out !

    US Stock - 5 Oct 2017

    SG Stock - 5 Oct 2017

    Total Dividend Collected from Jan – Sep 2017 : SGD $ 21,720.24. 

    Profits gained from Starhub and OCBC sale : SGD 96,785.58.

    Sorry to have disappeared for so long, decided to take a digital break. Between Jan – Sep, I have since sold off Starhub and OCBC. I have added Microsoft, Tencent, Tesla, Frasers HTrust, Nikko-AM STC Asia REIT. My US portfolio has been fantastic but my Singapore portfolio has been lackluster. The signs of the Singapore economy and the performance of many of the Singapore companies have been worrying, they don’t seemed to be able to transform themselves fast enough to the disruption that is happening across the industries. Moving forward, I will probably be more prudent in my investment in the local markets and maybe increase my cash reserves.

    US Stock - 18 Jan 2017SG Stock - 18 Jan 2017
    Total Dividend Collected from Jan РDec 2016 : SGD $ 62,205.

    Income distribution in Dec came from Aimsamp Cap Reit, SPH. I sold off SPH as I think they might be too late in their transformation exercise and added some Facebook.

    Happy New Year :-). What a year, 2016 ! For the first time, the Singapore market performed badly while the US market hits all time high. As you might have noticed, in the past few years, I slowed down on the accumulation of dividend stocks in Singapore and started to look for growth stocks in the US market for purpose of diversifying my portfolio. I am relieved that the dividend revenue managed to increase as I was expecting a drop due to the privatization of Keppel Land and the poor performance of the Singapore market.

    I am so sorry for the late updates. In the past months, I¬†embarked on this crazy trading learning journey. I’ve always been fascinated by the technicals (Candlesticks, RSI, Fibonacci, Elliot Wave, Ichimoku etc) and since I have been investing for a while.¬†I am always curious how these tools may help me in better manage my portfolio. Thus, I gave myself a 6 months learning challenge and a seed money of $60K SGD. Thank god, I’ve managed to grow the seed money to $100K SGD todate. I am still not convinced¬†this is a sustainable journey. Will keep you folks updated !!

    Here’s a high level view¬†of the crazy ride I had.

Now that my money is finally freed from my renovation and property investment. Time to strategize abit moving forward to grow the dividends target and strengthen the portfolio to prepare for the next BIG sale.

Apple reported smashing results while Twitter took a plunge due to it’s underperformance¬†earnings and glitch announcements. Sabana results and projected performance is once again a disappointment. Curious¬†to see Alibaba’s results this week :-).
