Cory Diary : Dividends Aug’17

As most dividends announced coming to an end this month, I have tabled my dividends taken YTD. This has hit $30,828. Half from Reits. I did not compute how much I will get by year end but I would think $40 K will be a good number. Since I last blogged about some of my stocks in various articles, CMT has a nice run up. Aim Reits has some correction. Singtel after ex-div has reduced some. Design Studio and Neratel I am a little fortunate. Interestingly Valuemax and AGT did not move up despite good results. Well, this is...

Cory Diary : North Korea Crisis on Stock Market Volatility 2017

During April this year I wrote about non-financial crisis events have minor or short term impact to stock market. To refresh memory here’s the ( link.)  Chance are this North Korea War on Words will come to past. While there maybe a small chance on Nuclear Black Swan Event, this is rather hard to predict as we are dealing with two egoistic adult humans.What I did ? I have to stay invested as dividend investor but did some re-balance on my portfolio. Raised some more cash for opportunity. YTD my dividends have hit $30K. So getting the last $10K may...

Cory Diary : XIRR Performance – Interim Q3 2017 July Update

July month just pasted. We have 5 more months to go. As everyone know, STI has been on winning streak this year. People who are wholly invested in banks expected to record significant gains. How I do so far without investing in them this year ? Below table is the Interim Q3’17 July result. A further improvement from Final Q2 on link here. My investment life returns moved up to 7.2%. I thought this is nice despite laden with PS and Bonds. STI YTD further it’ gain to 15.5% so despite Cory returns of 12% YTD, I am still incatch-up mode...

Cory Diary : Sheng Siong 2Q’2017

Is another profitable period for Sheng Siong. Last time when I blogged about this Supermarket ( link ) on 23rd Feb’17, price was $ 0.955. It moved up to $1.005 before recent Amazon news pull down the stock before recovering at $0.96. There was a div in May’17 of $0.0185. So theoretically speaking, without this news it would have hit more that $1.005 after report. If Amazon market segment target is Sheng Siong ones, I think it will be a mistake. So I am not so worried about it.  The impact will probably be more on the branding against existing online...

Cory Diary : Recent Trade Actions 20170726

STI has been almighty this year. And i start reviewing my portfolio for more stringent safety. The changes are on my personal trades and those that I can remember offhand. Please DYODD. HYFLUX 6% PCS With the run-up this year on this Pref shares and the profit guidance just announced, I decided to clear my little holding I have for 10% returns this year. Net for this counter is slightly negative. The catalyst possibly the sale of Singapore Plant but I decided not to wait.NetLink NBN Tr I have expanded my holding in this counter. My take is that...

Cory Diary : CAPITALAND MALL TRUST 2Q17 ( CMT )

Here’s the headline today “CMT 2Q 2017 net property income up 1.2% year-on-year Achieves higher distribution per unit despite closure of Funan for redevelopment” DPU within expectation. The threat of online shopping on CMT has been mute which has many strategic asset locations to benefit from. Before the result announced, share price has climbed up to $2.00. And Investor will have another quarterly distribution. At current price, is about 5.5% stable yield which is way better than fixed deposits and ofcourse with different risk level. But frankly, if we cannot except CMT risk, there is not many stocks we...

Cory Diary : Recent Trade Actions 20170719

Here’s another post on my recent trades but not all I can remember. The last time i post is here link. I try to stay as accurate as i can remember. ASCENDAS REIT I have managed to build back and more such that it has become one of my reit core holding. Using my basic TA skill, i thought 2.57 is a nice entry point but I start to dip for it at 2.62 and 2.58. I did sell some to resize my investment amount at 2.63. It now occupies 4%+ of my non-fixed equity. I am so glad to...

Cory Diary : Singtel 2017-0714

Let’s start with some data background of Singtel. I do this fast. Apologize for any error and DYODD. Since 2013, Singtel has been fluctuating within a big band of $3.3 to $4.5 range. During this time, annual distribution is about 17 cents ( not exact but growing ) which easily totaled roughly 90 cents. Right now the stock price is 60 cent below the top range. And current yield is about 4.4%. Revenue kind of flat. About S$3B FCF annually. Last year we see a little dip to about dividend support level despite no noticeable increase in capex. As...

Cory Diary : Accordia Golf Trust 20170707

This post is special. Is a sharing of Q&A with Brenda, Senior Manager, Investor Relations, AGT.

How do you view AGT in 3-5 years periods. Viewing from coming Olympics context. AGT is more of Middle Class category of golf...

Cory Diary : Portfolio Updates 20170703

Here’s my current holding. REITs – This sector has been star performer in first half of 2017. However not all the same. I am fortunate to have quite a number of bright stars here. They easily constitute 40% of my portfolio. Bulk of my dividends hopefully for the years to come. TELCO – The only possible segment which i feel there is still good room for 2nd half growth. Singtel’s Netlink IPO is a catalyst. But Singtel should be more than that. STI ES3 – I have reduced my holding largely. Nevertheless it is still quite a size-able amount...

Cory Diary : XIRR Performance – Final Q2 2017 June Update

Today is the last day of Q2 ’17. After my May Month Interim, managed to buy back, and more on Ascendas Reit, and FLT Reit which I earlier sold some this week. Glad with given the chance to fill back the hole I dig in my portfolio before the next REITs reporting season starts. I have also done more trading but it maybe too hard to blog each of them. Portfolio trend is lesser STI Index, due to strong run in banks. Here’s Q2’17 result. A further improvement from interim Q2 on link here. With STI YTD returns about 12% currently,...

Cory Diary : AIMS AMP CAPITAL INDUSTRIAL REIT – 2

I blogged about Aims Reit exactly 2 months ago. Link here. Since then it has moved up nearly 5%. And this exclude dividends distributed. People is recognizing the return value. At current $1.47 price, the yield is about 7.5%. Still so good. My wish is the reit needs only to maintain their dpu performance.Considering current investment climate, there is not better alternative that provide good value for money i feel personally. At this price range, I am not buying more as I have quite a significant exposure or so sadly because i feel there is still some room to...

Cory Diary : Singapore Savings Bonds experience ( SSB )

This is the website of SSB. http://www.sgs.gov.sg/savingsbonds/Your-SSB/This-months-bond.aspx Every month SSB will update with new tranche for purchase with appropriate rates as below picture. Purchase is simple online. I have tested few times using DBS website. Application is $2 each time. Dividends credited to my DBS saving account after 6 months automatically. To sell is not hard too as I have tested it literally. However do note your transaction and amount each time you purchase or withdraw as there is no easy access to SSB historical records that you can tell in the website when you sell. Bank statements in...

Cory Diary : Recent Trade Actions 20170617

Normally I do not comment much on my short term trades as I do a lot within a year if you have followed. As I have less creative ideas recently, I may as well talk a little on it.Recently, I sold ASCENDAS REIT. If one who has been following this reit, it always seem to be in all time high (including dividends). Aiming for it is like forever. You will never get it cheap. And you will regret it if you don’t. So what I did recently is to buy some only. And when price go up, I bought...

Cory Diary : Fibonacci Retracement Self-Learning

Fibonacci RetracementAs usual, I am not an expert in Technical tools. We can however try to use this to time our trade after FA. As dividend investor, getting in low enough is important so that we have a better pie in DPU and Capital gains if any. Using Fibonacci Retracement can be one of a good way but surely not always the right way. Here’s what i found on this Indicator definition. In technical analysis, Fibonacci retracement is created by taking two extreme points (usually a major peak and trough) on a stock chart and dividing the vertical distance by...
