I love Septembers.
It is my birthday month.
My bonuses get paid this month.
It marks the end of Q3 of the calender year. Yet another stretch completed in the arduous journey toward FI. I shall be tabulating the Q3 dividend earnings and overall portfolio in a separate post at the end of September.
It is also the month where a fair number of companies pay out yummy dividends, including First REIT and AIMSAPAC REIT. Together with my bonuses, the war chest gets a pretty healthy boost.
What’s not to like?
As icing on the cake, I also sold all my HKLand shares at 5.98 on 4 Sep, booking a small gain of 1.7k. This was never meant to be a long term trade anyway.
Currently on the look out for more deals in the market.
Recent news concerning the strike on Saudi’s oil facilities brought about a brief spike in oil prices. Keppel recovered briefly above the 6.2 mark
