My Investment Portfolio (September 2018)

STI ended 3rd quarter of the year at around 3257 points, a slight increase from last month. It had been another volatile month for investors as US-China trade spat worsens. The month started badly but ended strongly as investors focus back on the economies. For this month, I have attended the following AGMs/EGMs/briefing – SGX. For my top 30 holdings, the main mover had been Keppel T&T. The stock did well after controlling shareholder Keppel Corp made a cash offer to buyout minorities of the company via scheme of arrangement. Best World also returned to the list as the...

My Investment Portfolio (August 2018)

STI ended the month at around 3213 points, down around 3% from last month. It had been another challenging month for investors, especially those in the emerging markets as trade war fears accelerated further with Turkey becoming the latest addition to the list. On the local front, companies with financial year ending 30 June 2018 reported their full year results but it had been a mixed bag with cautious outlook statements. For this month, I have attended the following AGMs/EGMs/briefing – Delfi, Del Monte and Straits Trading. For my top 30 holdings, the main mover had been Bukit Sembawang...

My Investment Portfolio (July 2018)

STI ended the month at around 3319 points, up a bit from last month. It had been an extremely volatile month, with trade war and a new set of property cooling measures on Singapore residential properties being in the news. Property stocks were sold down across the board though they somewhat regained some ground towards the end of the month. For this month, I have attended the following AGMs/EGMs/briefing – SingPost, Azeus, Yoma, Vard, Asiatic, Bukit Sembawang Estates, Singapore Shipping, The Hour Glass and GP Industries. For my top 30 holdings, Wheelock Properties is a new entry in the...

My Investment Portfolio (June 2018)

STI ended the first half of the year on further weakness, retreating to 3268 points. Sino-US trade war concerns had been the main reason for this market selloff, although other issues like interest rate hike and US$ strength had been on the mind of investors as well. Overall, it had been a risk-off mode for investors this month. For this month, I have attended the following AGMs/EGMs/briefing – Envictus, Thakral, Cheung Woh, Ascendes India Trust, A-REIT and Ascendes Hospitality Trust. For my top 30 holdings, this wide spread selloff had affected some of them, but the damage had more...

My Investment Portfolio (May 2018)

STI ended May 2018 at 3428 points, down quite bit from last month. The statement, “Sell in May and go away” seems to be quite accurate in this case. There were bad news all over the place this month, with issues ranging from Italy’s political crisis, interest rate hike, trade wars, Malaysia elections etc. Also, lack of company specific news flow and with many companies going ex-dividend had contributed to the downward pressure on the markets. Taking all the above into consideration, I will continue to position my portfolio more defensively going forward. For this month, I have attended...

My Investment Portfolio (April 2018)

STI ended April 2018 at 3613 points, up from last month despite another volatile month.

For this month, I have attended the following AGMs/EGMs/briefing – Chew’s Group, UOI, Ascott Residence Trust, CapitaLand Mall Trust, Hotung, CapitaLand Commercial Trust, Sembcorp Industries, IFS Capital, Sinarmas Land, Riverstone, Amara, CapitaLand Retail China Trust, Ho Bee Land, Hong Leong Finance, Hiap Hoe, Hotel Grand Central and Vard.

My Investment Portfolio (March 2018)

STI ended March 2018 down from last month at around 3427 points. Again, it had been another volatile month in terms of trading. Concerns on investor minds include trade conflict between US and China, rate of interest rate hike, currency volatility etc. For this month, I have attended the following AGMs/EGMs/briefing – Far East Hospitality Trust and Mermaid Maritime. For my top 30 holdings, it had been another month of volatile movements. PM Data and LHT returned to the list.

My Investment Portfolio (February 2018)

STI ended the short February month of 2018 at around 3518 points, a bit down from last month. Though the closing index value might not change much, it had been a very volatile month with the early part being hit by massive volatility due to US interest rate hike fears. In the middle of the month, corporate results managed to gain confidence back to the market, but volatility increased near the end of the month due to weak manufacturing data out from the region. For this month, I have attended the following AGMs/EGMs/briefing – Pan Hong, K1 Ventures, United...

My Investment Portfolio (January 2018)

STI ended the first month of 2018 at around 3533 points, as markets started the year with a bang. However, there seems to be some selloff near the end of the month as most markets continue to record new highs. I will be positioning my portfolio more defensively going forward since the risk of a major correction is now very much higher than last year. For this month, I have attended the following AGMs/EGMs/briefing – Frasers Commercial Trust, Frasers Centrepoint Trust, Chew’s Group, Frasers Centrepoint Limited and Casa Holdings. For my top 30 holdings, Tat Seng maintained its decent performance as...

My Investment Portfolio (December 2017)

STI ended the year at around 3402 points, up 18% from last year. But this month had been quiet in terms of market action and news front, as a lot of investors were on holidays. Trading volume was also low in what had been a slow moving market. There is also not much corporate reporting as most employees are probably on leave. For this month, I have attended the following AGMs/EGMs/briefing – SHC Capital Asia. For my top 30 holdings, ComfortDelgro returned to the list as I continued to add onto the stock on share price weakness. Other than...

My Investment Portfolio (November 2017)

STI ended the month at around 3433 points, again ending above last month’s closing. Although STI is somewhat muted near the end of the month, with Dow Jones hitting new highs, the local market somewhat benefited from the spillover effect. Bank stocks had been doing well, with expectation of interest rate hike. For this month, I have attended the following AGMs/EGMs/briefings – Ocean Sky, Delfi, Sinopipe, Khong Guan, Vicplas, GLP and TTJ. For my top 30 holdings, Jardine C&C returned to the top after I build up my position in the stock on share price weakness. Tat Seng is...

STI ended the month at around 3374 points, surprisingly strong showing after a few weak months.

My Investment Portfolio (September 2017)

My Investment Portfolio (August 2017)

STI closed the month at around 3277 points, ending the month down from last month. Trading volume had generally been low and markets had been concerned about tensions on the Korean peninsular.

For my top 30 holdings, ComfortDelgro returned to the list again as I added more onto the stock on recent share price weakness. Venture also appeared in the list for...
