Summary of August 2017 Transactions

A summary of my August 2017 transactions came late as I went for a short holiday over the long weekends. In the month of August, I have sold off Lippo Malls Indonesia Retail Trust. (You can read more of my reasons here: Goodbye Lippo Malls Indonesia Retail Trust)

I have also received my company performance bonus in August. As I currently have no stock in mind to invest, I decided to park a portion of my bonus into the Singapore Savings Bond. (Singapore Savings Bond versus Savings Account versus Fixed Deposits)

Summary of July 2017 Transactions

This month, I have divested StarHub and Keppel REIT from my stock portfolio. The above chart shows my current stock allocation. I am looking at divesting Soilbuild Business Space REIT from my stock portfolio as well but the current share price is not quite right yet and I need to do further research on its recent financial results as well prior to making a sell decision. Lippo Malls Trust was also on my strike off list but it seems that based on dividend yield, it is still yield lucrative based on current share price.

You can read more about my sale transactions this month below.

  1. Goodbye StarHub
  2. Goodbye Keppel REIT

The sale of Keppel REIT has caused my exposure to office REITs to be reduced to 2%. The 2% purely comes from Frasers Commercial Trust. After the sale of Keppel REIT, I will be on a lookout for another quality office REIT to add on to my stock portfolio.

There are no more Telecommunication stocks in my stock portfolio as M1 and StarHub share price starts to either plunge or go into a downtrend. I hope that is not due to the 4th Telco. It seems that SingTel is the sole survivor out of the three right now.

Summary of February 2017 Transactions

In the month of February 2017, I made two sell transactions. I have divested Far East Hospitality Trust and NeraTel. You can read more on Far East Hospitality Trust at Far East Hospitality Trust Undervalued or Value Trap?  and NeraTel at NeraTel – An Abandoned Child.

There are a few stocks in my watch list such as Acromec, ISOTeam, Hock Lian Seng, Tai Sin Electric and many more but I shall not be investing in them now with the cash gotten from the sale of Far East Hospitality Trust and NeraTel. The reason is I need more time to do more research and analysis. After a year on, I am still sticking to investing for dividends. If the stock is a growth stock, it will be a plus. Read More
