Cory Diary : Mapletree NAC Tr – Plan

This is one stock that I seldom blog about. One main reason is being selfish. I aren’t saint and not that good either, ok. I need to plan my buys. Actually I have average up this twice resulting it becomes one of my 15% profit stocks. Much earlier if we based on initial amount. As it reach another high today I thought it maybe good to plan my exits. So I do a chart on it today. Do remember I aren’t expert in all this including stock selection. Is just my diary of my thoughts. 2019-0408 Mapletree NAC Tr...

Cory Diary : 5 min walk

Walked on the pavement I think a hundred times. Never gives much thought to it. It just a walkway. Not sure why I feel a sense of serenity walking back from 7-11 store that day. Just got a latte cafe for my wife after my rather regular break in the cafe corner station playing my new mobile game sipping a cup of hot latte. Sorry Star buck I don’t have to be elite to enjoy the same. And yes, I have my free time. Clean road, quiet street, breezing winds, lined tress and a 19C temperature. What a nice...

Cory Diary : Bubble Chart 2019-0401 No April Fool

The spotlight this month is Ascendas Reit. And is no April Fool if you think I am about to go down that line. Adjusted the Y-axis of the chart this month not once but twice so that the Ascendas Moon completely stays within the chart, and if you yet realize, is good news. Largest position, it has gone north ( Capital Gains Y-Axis ). Hitting more than 13% portfolio allocation ( Bubble Size ).  Since there is more talk on this now, maybe new investors need to be wary to be participant in the game now. At 5.5% yield currently,...

Cory Diary : Q1 2019 Portfolio Review

Time for Q1 2019 review. STI ETF YTD registered XIRR 5% gain including dividend, annualized. And it is now my largest counter of almost 10% without a need for me to put an extra dime into which I will blog later. Reits and Trusts have another good run for the last month of the quarter too. As they are about 50% of my portfolio, I have benefited from it largely. The best performer for local stock is Ascendas Reit registering 16% returns YTD. Ascendas Reit was my largest prior to end of Q1. After discussing with friends over in...

Cory Diary : Did we just just celebrated Recession ?

With looming recession the talk of town, the Market starts to ramp up. What ?!  This time different lah …. why ? Because this means interest rate won’t be going up …  ( wah lao … I just signed up fixed rate loan for that ….. @#%$@#%) Who benefits most from it ? Reits and Trust. Which I still find it ironical because I have been harping rising rate won’t affect them much either. Not that I am complaining much. New high for my portfolio with …. “silly bonds”.  I could see 7% mark … Who suffers ? Banks...

Cory Diary : Baby Expenses – Overview

I have been pondering to write this post because expenses on my baby is not as closely tracked. One thing is I am often oversea and there is some currency exchange, and receipts lost. Some of the the expenses are covered by my wife and relatives. Do note that my baby is born oversea. I will be in the process to make baby bonus claim later but for tax deduction probably I don’t benefit much from it locally. Nevertheless, is about out not in. One thing to note is that over time I will come back and update this post...

Cory Diary : Portfolio at 21

STI Index YTD since 31st Dec’18 is currently at +4.3% excluding dividends. Cory Portfolio since measured from 2007 to today is 6.2% XIRR. My tracked portfolio is at 6.3% including dividends this year measured with end date 31st Dec 2019 whereas STI ETF XIRR is at +4.9% including dividends for same apple to apple measure.  Here’s the latest portfolio distribution.  Reits/Trusts – They have better weight-age individually. 8 will be a good number to go forward at minimum. I have seen some minor correction in CMT to $2.33 but still not deep enough for me to collect back what I have sold...

Cory Diary : Life is about Choices – STI Index

Life is about Choices When I blogged earlier on 25th Dec’18 that we likely see better STI index, indeed we do. I would say fortunately we do because if it has broken supports, the alternative of the market direction would have been terrible. See the link here. So what I did then is to up my investible amount into the market that time in and indeed benefited from it. Today I took a peak on the index again. Here’s the chart. STI Index There is the golden cross up that most would like to see back in Dec’18 wishes. ...

Cory Diary : Trading – Span of Control In-Check

Sold Frasers L&I Tr – This is particular interesting sale because nothing much has changed for the company other than the stock price moved up quite a bit from beginning of year at $1.03. I only found out when someone blogged about it that he had sold and decided to investigate. The chart looks like a spike up “W-shaped”. Since I am in the process of counter reduction, this looks like no brainier to sell too for me considering I have Ascendas and Maple Ind. Tr in industrial segment.   For the dividends replacement of which it provides more than 6.5%...

Cory Diary : Hallmarks of a Good Reit

If one has been investing in Reits for years, we know not all the same. Some will grow their DPU with times. This mean regardless of new issuance of shares, the original share holders still get more dividends after per share (Holy grail of passive investors).  Some will give dividends on par,  some with some capital loss. Some tricky ones required you to do “average down” with risks. Some are mismanaged. Some are crooks. For those who are on the lasts, remember their management. Any company they touch is something you may want to know. Hallmark of a Good...

Cory Diary : US Stocks enjoying nice rebound

Last year is bad for US stock investors. This year for the first 2 months have seen strong rebound. Hopefully it stays. Below table is the YTD returns of US stocks that I am tracking.One thing realised is that if there is nothing fundamental change in the company, US stock can swing like crazy. Therefore, ability to hold seems key. On the other hand, if I have average down, returns would have been awesome. Indeed land of opportunity....

Cory Diary : Revisiting Thought Process – Portfolio

Decision Making Back to Radar View to conceptualize my thinking …. on my investment size in each counter. There are 3 scale markers in the chart with 0%, 5% and 10%. For those who find it hard to read, the radar view display my investment size for each counter with those in the center has the larger allocation. Sitting on the most outer ring has zero investment now eg. HRnetGroup, PrkwayLfie Reit and Mapletree com Tr. This year return so far hits XIRR 6.5% today which is pretty close to 6.4% profit year to date. Thanks to Reits/Trusts and...

Cory Diary : Royal Flush, Cory Bubbles

Is like a Royal Flush bubble picture. Looks like everyone is above the zero line. Technically the new entrants aren’t due to transaction cost. If we look at the chart closely, STI ETF aren’t the tallest but in percentage term it does relatively well against my portfolio. 5 of the stocks registered double digits gains.  Feb is another good month and I do not want to wait for it to end to blog. Dividend stocks driving more profitability. Took the opportunity to buy a little UOB today after Sheng Siong this week. I have been controlling my shooting…. ....

Cory Diary : Intelligence comes with responsibility

The Saga of Hyflux has been burning for quite some period of time. As usual when something like such in trouble, investor community especially retirees will be affected. Unlike HPH Tr, Sabana Reit, Noble or S-Chips, listed Hyflux do produces Power other than Water to the Public both tied to basic essentials for our Island State survivals.However every time when I hear someone vested in Hyflux Preference Shares or Stocks they have the mentality that Ah Gong will not let it fails and that due to it’s necessity, the investment will not go wrong. And this is where most...
