Summary of May 2018 Transactions

There has been major changes to my stock portfolio this month. I have added Frasers Logistics & Industrial Trust to my stock portfolio. You can read more of my personal analysis here ( My Personal Analysis of Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust ). Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust now makes up 7% of my stock portfolio.

To partially fund my purchase of Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust, I have sold off Boustead at a loss of 11%. However, with the dividends I have collected over the years, I made a profit of 31.5%. Gone are the glory days of Boustead since it spinned off Boustead Projects into a separate listed stock on SGX. In recent years, it has also been impacted by the economy downturn in the marine oil and gas sector. Based on my purchase price of Boustead in all the way back in 2012, the current dividend yield is around 2.7%. Being a dividend investor, I choose to sell off Boustead and enter into a position with Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust instead as it offers me a higher yield. Read More
