Recap 2016 & Looking Ahead 2017

Global markets were on a roller coaster ride in 2016 starting in really bad shape with market crash shouting all over the places but ending 2016 with a bang (for most markets in particular US).  FTSE STI however was flat for the year despite all the roller coaster ride and great volatility, ending with a dip of 0.068%. Recap Global markets suffered major sell off in January 2016 due to fear that China currency, the renminbi could be devalued further and FTSE STI fell below 2,600 before bottoming in February.  On the road to recovery, ECB provided further support...

Journey To Retirement Part 10.1 — CapMallsAsia Bond

As of 12th Jan 2017, CapMallsAsia has finally redeemed all its outstanding bond, CapMallA3.8%b220112 and that signaled the end of my investment in it.  For the 5 years period of investment, capital return is 0%, typical characteristic of bond when redeem at par value and interest return was 20.94%, annualized to be 3.87%. I was not a strong believer of bond investment despite the fact that it is so-called risk free (presumably referring to Government bond) so in 2012 decided to test out on bond investment.  CapMallsAsia was the one I chosen then given that its 3.8% interest payment...

Journey To Retirement Part 1.3 — Genting SP

Was quite eventful for Genting SP the past 2 months.  Firstly, on 11th Nov 2016, Genting SP announced the divestment of its stake in the Jeju IR in South Korea (refer here).  Then on 15th Dec 2016, Japan Government finally legalized casino after the idea was first debated in 2013. The divestment of Jeju IR was quite a shocked to me given that next year the IR will commence operation and to divest without earning a single cent from it totally make no sense to me.  Though, the explanation given by the company — after divestment, Genting SP will...

Journey To Retirement Part 14.1 — MapletreeCom Trust

Sold 80% of the right issue allotment at $1.52, $0.10 above the right issue price of $1.42.  The reason was pretty much strategic and act accordingly to Sun Tzu Art of War (孙子兵法).  As such, the overall cost of the “Strategic” section of the portfolio went down from $0.239/share to $0.0419/share. Why 80% and not whole of everything ?   Well, the sale proceed of that 80% is just nice enough to subscribe to the right issue of Keppel DC Reit whose right issue price is at $1.155.  Normally, right issue will dilute the existing holding especially in term...

Journey To Retirement — CPFIS

10 years ago I opened my CPFIS investment account to start my journey in stocks investing with CPF money.  After a decade, the conclusion I get from those experiences is you can only achieve good return (beating that 2.5% pa on OA) if you do it correctly, that is through long-term fundamental or value investing.  There has been talk on CPFIS is not “fit for purpose”, time for review, etc lately.  Frankly speaking, I do not agree to that 100% neither do I object that 100% too. Like many others I started doing short-term investing/trading from 2006 to 2008...

Stock Incubator

Started in 2010 decided to put aside a portion of money from my trading capital to buy a stock, which I deemed could provide multi-fold return in the future, under observation.  Once certain conditions are met, the stock will be transferred to my long-term investment portfolio.  As such a move is relatively higher risk than the usual investment, only a small portion of capital is allocated to it (amount of money that I could afford to lose if things turn sour).  This is what I termed as calculated risk.  After all, nothing is risk free in this world (money...
