4.7% dividend yield is the final outcome after all the hardwork this year. Total dividend received in 2020 was 85% of 2019 amount - which is expected given this COVID year. 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
It is a nice change after several week of losses to see "Greens" emerging on my Singapore and Hong Kong portfolios again. The Hang Seng and Strait Times Index gained about 2% each. While the gain on my Hong Kong stocks was more broad-based, this was not the case for my Singapore portfolio. It's only the … Continue reading Random Thoughts about Last Week Happenings

So, it is … Continue reading My $Buy > $Sell for a Change – an inflection point?

Wow, I have another 6 subscribers in the last 2 days. Thanks for your support! It is already motivating me to pen this blog in the midst of an extremely crowded MRT train rather than watch my movie on Netflix ... LOL Yesterday was another great day for my dividend purse. Both Asian Pay TV … Continue reading Dividend Play: Asian Pay TV & Netlink Trust

Following my last blog on my top 5 holdings, I have been receiving questions from readers on why SPH is on the top of the list (and by the way, it is still there today) There is no special reason - it was partly because I sold the previous top few Reits and then SPH started … Continue reading SPH: Is there a safe level to buy?
A colleague asked me recently if I invest in local small caps since I have been blogging about SReits, Oil, Bonds, ETF but not the small caps. Well, I do actually.
