For those who miss my Aug Performance Report. Here you are.
With the recent sales of Singtel and Mapletree NAC Tr, estimated dividends by year end will be around $46k. This means potentially Cory Equity Portfolio may collect slightly lesser than Year 2018 despite bull year for my portfolio. Alamak ! Without saying it will be some distance from 50k target….. sigh !
Portfolio yield is at 4.6%. This is mainly due to STI ETF and Bonds/ Preference shares holding the values down which has seen significant expansion as I try to lock my happy returns to safer harbor. Another possible reason is that there are additional stakes in some counters which do not have dividends for the remainder of the year. One for yield, the other speculation.
Will gather some bullets and re-balancing. Hopefully I can do some magics to fix the issue.
