Summary of November 2017 Transactions

This month, there is some major changes to my stock portfolio. If you have noticed, I have fully divested Soilbuild Business Space REIT (Goodbye SoilBuild Business Space REIT). With the cash from the divestment, I have increased my stake in CapitaMall Trust and Mapletree Commercial Trust (Why I Bought Into Mapletree Commercial Trust).

A few readers wrote in to ask why I bought the above two REITs which are considered selling at a premium right now? Basically, I am satisfied with the current yield the two REITs are paying. By increasing my units of holding, I am expecting to receive more distribution payout in the year 2018. Well, that is my plan. Read More

Seventy Five Percent Invested, Twenty Five Percent Cash

Recently, I have added more of Mapletree Commercial Trust and CapitaMall Trust to my stock portfolio. As such, cash on hand has decreased. I have also been performing Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS) top up over the past few months to reduce the income tax amount I have to pay next year. My current cash on hand versus my total investment in stocks is 25 percent versus 75 percent respectively.

I am expecting my cash to increase next month as just like Kevin from Turtle Investor, I am expecting to receive my annual wage supplement in the month of December. Read More

What Have You Bought on 11.11

I cannot miss out such good deals. On 11 November 2017, almost all online shopping websites are having crazy deals and sales.

My hands are not fast enough for the Razer and Marshall Surprise Boxes. The boxes were out of stock within 10 seconds when I tried to complete my transaction. However, I managed to grab myself a HP surprise box from Lazada instead. According to blog reviews I read, the item in the surprise box is worth more than S$100 but you only pay S$29 for it.

Yes, I paid only S$29 for the HP Surprise Box. It is a HP sprocket in the HP Surprise Box and I love it because I can bring it out for travel and print photos off my mobile phone.
