• My Stock Report Card for Jan – Dec 2017

    US Stock

    US Stock - 7 Jan 2018

    SG Stock

    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 !

  • My Stock Report Card for Jan – Sep 2017

    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.
