Jan 2021 – Hope & Exuberance

S&P 500 might have shed 1.9%, erasing its gains for January and 2021 to date and the last one week being its worst since October 2020.

Week 2 Highlights: CityDev, ARA LOGOS Rights & SPH Reit Dividends

This is actually better than the 4.5% yield that I was expecting back in July when I wrote about it. This outcome was helped … Continue reading 4.7% Dividend Yield on Equity Portfolio

5% yield looks unattainable this year, I am contended with 4.5%

Almost 60% of the year is gone now. Looking back at the last few months, wow, what can I say except to exclaim that it has been an unusual year so far! I don't expect things to improve much in the remaining few months - in fact, I see more downsides than upsides. Year to … Continue reading 5% yield looks unattainable this year, I am contended with 4.5%

Added Favourites & This Week Watchlist

Last week financial headlines were either dominated by the impending local election or the worsening COVID-19 situation in US. The latter is spooking investors so much so that Dow Jones dropped 700 points on Friday alone. The local STI was trading within a very tight range throughout the week, and clearly losing the steam to … Continue reading Added Favourites & This Week Watchlist
