My Sweet Retirement Mid Year Checkpoint 2017



Time flies and it is time for Mid year review again on the goals that I have set for the year 2017.

1. Achieve 15K of Passive Income

I think I am over optimistic on this. Last year, I received a total of S$10,132.04 of dividend income for the year of 2016. I have since divested M1, Sheng Siong, Cambridge Industrial Trust, NeraTel and Far East Hospitality Trust and only bought Capitaland Mall Trust in 2017.

Recently, I bought Tai Sin Electric but added to my wife’s stock portfolio instead thus I shall not count it as part of my dividend income.

Summary of May 2017 Transactions

After monitoring Tai Sin Electric for almost a month, I decide to make a buy transaction. I did not add it to my stock portfolio but instead I added it to my spouse’s stock portfolio. She has now 5 stocks in her stock portfolio!

If you read my post on Looking at Tai Sin Electric Limited Market Depth, there is good support at S$0.425. Buying and selling is very similar to supply and demand. There is quite a high volume asking for S$0.46 and a lot of bid volume at S$0.42 and S$0.425.

Based on My Personal Analysis of Tai Sin Electric Limited, this will give a dividend yield return of more than 5% for my spouse.

The risk here is the slowing down of construction and infrastructure projects in Singapore. Outweighing the growth potential versus the investment risks, that is how I came to the decision to add this stock to my spouse’s stock portfolio. The management has proven to be able to ride through difficult times and I shall monitor if they are able to ride through the current storm and continue to growth Tai Sin Electric Limited and return more value to its shareholders.
