Added: FIRST REIT (Jan 2019)

Bought 37,000 shares of FIRST REIT on 17 Jan at $0.99. Total numbers of FIRST REIT shares owned increased to 52,000 shares.

(Part 2) 2 weeks in Los Angeles (LA), Las Vegas (LV) and San Francisco (SF) for less than SGD5,500 each

Day 6 Depart Los Angeles and drove all the way to Las Vegas. Ghost Town Road?!?!?!?!?! Seven magic mountains – Desert art installation featuring 7 painted boulder totems up to 35 ft. high Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area This is the reason why we choose to drive instead of taking a flight to Las Vegas (LV). Before reaching LV, it is recommended to go to Red Rock Canyon. There is this Red rock scenic loop (13 miles) where you get to see beautiful view :D If you are more adventure, you can do hiking here too. Cost: USD15/car...

Added: FIRST REIT (Dec 2018)

Bought 4,000 shares of FIRST REIT on 19 Dec at $1. Total numbers of FIRST REIT shares owned increased to 15,000 shares. Reasons for buying: 1) FIRST REIT had released an “Analyst Briefing Slides” dated 12 Dec to manage “expectation” instead of based on “rumour” (Link). Key slides to focus: Slide 22 – 29 2) 8.6% dividend yields 3) First REIT is oversold 4) P/B at 0.91 5) I actually quite like the idea of OUE becoming one of the Sponsors.

Review: Millionaire Mind Intensive

I went to attend the 3 days Millionaire Mind Intensive (MMI) held in Singapore Expo from 30th Nov – 2 Dec 2018.  I enjoyed and learnt alot from the book when I read it last Nov 2017 (Link here) that I went ahead to purchase the VIP ticket for this MMI.

The BAD 1) I think their intensive refer to the hours of the seminar. Day 1: 9am to 10.30pm Day 2: 9am to 10pm Day 3:...

Sold my 16,500 shares of CapitaMall Trust (CMT) on 6th Dec at $2.25 Total profit, including dividend, of $9497.26 (30.19%) in 2 years 1 months. Reasons for selling it: One day after I sold my stock, CMT reached a record high of $2.30 today before closing down at $2.27. However, for the past 5 years, CMT could not pass the ceiling of $2.28.
