Free 2GB of Mobile Data Per Day

TPG Mobile is offering a free 12 months trial on their mobile service right now. I bet no Telcos in Singapore can offer you free 2GB of mobile data per day except TPG mobile. My current mobile plan offers only 3GB of data per month!

For those who are interested to sign up for the free trial, you can do so at their website. But please do take note that the registration is closed once they have enough registrations for the day. Even though their website has mentioned that they will open registration daily at 9am, the registration remained closed for a couple of days. I have to keep monitoring the registration page and I was lucky to register for the free trial when they opened last week.

Collection of the SIM card was easy at Shaw Center. You only have to flash the barcode in the email that TPG emailed you immediately after the registration and do bring along your NRIC for identification.

With such fantastic deal like above, it is no wonder TPG mobile can be a threat to Singtel, Starhub and M1.

Most of the stocks that I have accumulate are either REITS or business trust because that is where the accretive dividend yield is. One of the thing I missed out doing is housekeeping. When more and more stocks get added to my stock portfolio, I find it hard to manage. Certain stocks in my portfolio has under performed but I am not aware. Thus, this month, I decided to do some housekeeping and also reduce the number of stocks in my portfolio. The ideal number of stocks is around 20. Read More

Goodbye M1

I have been holding M1 for the longest time since 2008 for its good dividend payouts over the years. On 18th October 2016, M1 announced its 3Q2016 financial results. We can see how much the financials have deteriorated. Thus, I made the decision to divest M1 in my stock portfolio.

A telco operator’s revenue is very much predictable based on its prepaid and postpaid revenue. Operating revenue, profit after tax and prepaid, postpaid revenue all fell for M1 over the quarters.

Given the higher risks than benefits, below are few of the reasons I decided to divest M1.
