Portfolio Update – Jan 2016

January has come and go. Some believed that the worst is over and started picking up stocks aggressively while others feel that it is still over-valued and stayed at the side lines. I believe that the worst is not over yet but it is also an opportunity to pick up some stocks. HenceĀ I continued my plan of nibbling STI ETF, added a bank stock and sold off another stock for capital gains.

1. Bought 100 shares of STI ETF at $2.70 and $2.60 respectively.
I do not know how low the index will go but I will continue to nibble at each 10 cents drop.

2. Bought 100 shares of OCBC at $8.360 and $7.70 respectively.
Besides O&G, banks bore the burnt of the recent sell down. Again, it is difficult to put a number on how low OCBC will go but my next buy point will be when STI hit 2,500, I estimate OCBC will be around $7.20.

3. Sold 1 lot of MM2 Asia at $0.595
To have more capital to buy OCBC. I sold it at a all month low and the price has since rebounded. I am not going to complain as it was a punt and I tripled my money. However I regretted not being able attend any of the free movie previews.

Dividends
