Portfolio Update - Apr 2017

Our portfolio grew by 9.25% this month (through both capital injection and capital gain) bringing it to $236k! Total capital injection YTD (Year Till Date) is $57,818 and capital growth of $11,349. With that we have exceeded our target/goal for the year and we are on track to our 1 million portfolio in 10 years time - refer to Our Goals.

For the month of April, we bought 1 stock (GuocoLand) and subscribed to Ascott REIT rights issue. GuocoLand has a NAV of $2.96 and has been paying dividends ($0.05/$0.08) over the years. This stock was brought to my attention by one of AK's blog post where he gave a detailed analysis over here - Invested in Guocoland with Mr. Quek Leng Chan.

I fully subscribe to Ascott REIT 1,450 rights issue and over subscribe/allocated another 1,150 shares. Based on my last analysis on the rights issue, I was previously sitting on a loss of -$395.62 (-6.66%). However, as of the last closing price ($1.11), I am currently sitting on a gain of +325.98 (+3.91%). That is how it is, up and down, there is no need to be too affected by the volatility of the stock price.
