It is time for another update for the month as we move towards the half year mark, a half-time update to reflect upon how we did in our portfolio.


I'm currently on a 2 weeks break away from work to spend more time with my parents so I have quite a bit of time to blog these 2 weeks.

The big news this month is on the Kim-Trump Summit which will take place in a historic event on the 12th Jun. 

I've been following the news quite closely to see what kind of outcome can they agree and compromise upon with one another.

This month's portfolio did not see much changes.

I participated in the FLT rights offering which I blogged over here.

My entitlement was 14,500, together with my family's which I then applied for an excess of 3,500 at a discounted price of $0.967.

I received 2,700 of those excesses which means it was in the money right away of about 10% return. Really a decent deal.

At a slightly higher than 7% yield, I think this is one Reit that I will keep for the long term as the Reits still continuing to grow.

I have also divested my Tuan Sing at about 10% loss after deciding to switch them to Singtel, which I bought at a trance of around $3.33. The decision was made as I am attempting to switch to a more yield portfolio than growth and it aligns with my strategy for the longer term.

Singtel (and the other telcos) continues to struggle and I should be adding to my position slowly each month with new capital injection.

I also participated in a very small bid towards the Astrea Bond which is immaterial to the portfolio, and will only know by next week. I have no plans to make this a big part of my portfolio but rather switching some emergency funds and warchest into a higher yield right now.

The number of companies remained at 7 equities at the moment, and I will be looking to gradually add this to 10 by the end of the year.


Net Worth Portfolio

The portfolio has increased from the previous month of $657,225 to $671,320 this month (+2.1% month on month; +10.0% year on year).

This is the fifth time in the six month this year that the portfolio is breaking a new all time record high. Most of the gains are due to the capital injection that I received from my dividends.

While it is at a new record high, I am rather disappointed that it has not done as well as I had expected and the year on year increase is getting a lot slower these few months.

The portfolio has year to date this year returned 0.92%, which has underperformed the STI at 2.85%, though I am very confident that by year end I'd be able to catch STI up by surprise.

Family Portfolio

This is to update the part of family's portfolio which I managed together with mine.

The goal is to ensure the portfolio grow at a steady rate especially the children's portfolio until they turned semi-adults, which I will then have it transferred to their own account.

1.) Wife's Portfolio


She decided to reinvest the dividends received for the FLT back into the funds and I've allocated 500 shares for her portion.

2.) Baby B1.0 Portfolio (Age: 4 years and 2 months)


I have also reinvested the dividends received for FLT back into the funds for an additional 500 shares.

This is based on a very long term play so I believe the portfolio will grow together with FLT over time.

Final Thoughts

The portfolio still continue to grow very slowly each month through sufficient capital injection, though the returns this year have not helped much.

I'm still confident that the second half of the year will be a lot better and the objective is to continue looking for dividend companies that has a relatively undervalued valuation.

The next upcoming dividend would be mostly in Aug or Sep, so the bulk of those income would be put to good use by then.

Meanwhile, it's business as usual.

Thanks for reading.
