In this month of November, I have made two stock transactions. The first is that I have subscribed to the rights offered by Mapletree Commercial Trust. I have applied for excess rights and gotten all the excess rights that I have applied for. This surprises me as based on past experiences, I never gotten any excess rights that I have tried to apply for. This is also given Mapletree Commercial Trust is such a popular REIT. With the addition of new units, you can see that Mapletree Commercial Trust now occupies 11% of my stock portfolio in terms of invested value.
You probably might be wondering which is the second stock transaction that I have made. I have purchased Frasers Commercial Trust at S$1.61. Based on the price of S$1.61, the current dividend yield is 5.57%. This is much more than the current month’s issue of the Singapore Savings Bonds whereby the interest rate has fell to a level beyond my interest. I have skipped this month’s purchase of Singapore Savings Bonds and placed my monies with Frasers Commercial Trust since the yield is much higher.
Moving ahead, I probably will refrain from purchasing Singapore Savings Bonds should the yield worsen. I shall look for pockets of opportunities in the current stock market in terms of dividend yield to make regular purchases.
One of the best features that I liked about Stocks Café is the report function whereby I can see the dividends that I have collected based on the stocks that I held in my stock portfolio. Since most of the dividends are in, I shall be sharing with you whether I have met my goal of 11K passive income next month.
