My First Insurance Policy

I bought my first insurance policy on the first week of my army recruit days.  I had no financial and insurance knowledge at that time.  On hind sight, probably I will not buy such policy. It is just a simple life policy and does not include any medical illness benefits.  Yes, it is still in force. And miraclely I still have the same insurance agent after so many years. The early “benefit” of this policy was only paying 50% of the premium for the two-and-a-half years of my army life.  The full premium will kick-in only after my army...

Past Bear Attacks (Part 2)

Actually I have intended that this Part 2 follows Part 1 immediately.  But it was delayed due to the national mourning for the passing of our founding father Lee Kuan Yew.  I felt that it would be disrespectful if I talked about bear at that point in time. Now, to carry on from Part 1: 2003 – SARS The defeated bear of 2001 returned with vengeance just two years later and this time it was not only financial threatening, but also life threatening. This was the SARS bear, rumoured to be from China. Market/Economy: The economy was scary this...

Finally HPH Trust attained breakeven

I have HPH Trust since its IPO day.  This stock is like a permanent submarine and has never come close to my average price for the stock. However, it has the highest dividend yield among the STI component stocks.  That is why I leave it there in my portfolio.  HPH Trust produced the highest dividend yield in my portfolio for 2014. After collecting the March dividend last week and together with the strengthening of the US dollar, HPH Trust finally crossed my breakeven point. HPH Trust stock price is VERY volatile and there is HIGH chance that they may...

Past Bear Attacks (Part 1)

Many people say we are long due for another bear attack.  These posts (Part 1 and 2) are in memory of the bears that I have encountered in the past. 1997 – Asian Financial Crisis First bear that I encountered and directly affected me.  This was the “robbery bear”.  The CLOB shares saga was one of the events in the AFC.  I lost my humble savings in this “club” (CLOB).  One of my colleagues had half a million frozen in the “club”. Market/Economy: Market was bad, economy was bad.  Many companies had retrenchment exercises and many people were affected. ...

100,000 and 170,000 Milestones

Happy New Year to all! It is a bit late as today is already the 4th day of the Goat Year. But as the saying goes, “better late than never”, wishing all “Huat Ah” in the new year. Yesterday there was a spike of the page views on my blog and the page view counters crossed “100,000”. I started this humble blog as a personal tracking on my investment and also a logbook for my small boat on the journey to Financial Free Kingdom. Thanks everyone for the encouragement and support! On the other front, my stock portfolio values...

Another piece of the jigsaw – OCBC Bank

In the past week, I took a small nibble in OCBC Bank, and hence collected the first banking stock into my portfolio. Then came the news that OCBC failed to sell United Engineer… Anyway this is just for diversification and it was really a very small nibble, just 200 shares. So whatever bad news do not worry me. I am still short of commodities at the moment. In the past, I do have Noble Group for a very brief period of time. At that time, Nobel was still a $2+ stock. I did not like the volatility, the low...

Smaller bricks in the market

My passive income portfolio is building up gradually by the brick-by-brick process.  In the past, 1 brick AKA 1 lot AKA 1,000 shares. Using this method, the higher priced blue chips are beyond my reach.  Moreover, whenever there is money in my investment account, my fingers start feeling itchy and usually I will buy something before the money could be accumulated enough for those high priced stocks. From tomorrow onwards (19th Jan 2015), the minimum lot size in the SGX security market will be reduced from 1,000 to 100, making higher priced stocks more affordable. Furthermore, on the POEMS...
