Portfolio - April 2019

Long overdue post because I was on vacation! Just came back from a Europe Trip with my family a few days ago. It was nice to be able to spend time and travel with my parents (it has been a long long time since we travelled overseas). Unfortunately, the trip was not perfect because Europe just isn't safe. We bought a Prada handbag (Euro $630 = ~S$945) at Designer Outlet Parndorf on day 6, kept it in the luggage (locked whenever we leave the room or on the tour bus). We were trying to repack the night before our flight back home only to discover that it has magically disappeared from our luggage on day 9. Tried to make a police report (to file for insurance) in Munich but the police officer refused/rejected us because the suspected loss was not in the same country (we were in Austria from day 6 to 8 and Germany on day 9). Oh well, Europe remains one of my least favorite places.

Our portfolio increase by 2.65% to $410,873 - $3,803.44 of capital injection and $6,805.98 of capital gain. The one in blue is the StashAway portfolio, green is SGX and the total is in black.

If you prefer to look at numbers, this is the raw data used to generate the above bar graph. These numbers are as of the last day of the month.

"Cash Flow" is the amount of money being injected/withdrawn from the portfolio (buying stocks = +ve cash flow while selling stocks and collecting dividends = -ve cash flow)


- Ascott REIT (3,400 units) @ $1.18

After selling Hong Fok last month, we wanted to redeploy the money back into the market.  Assuming if the DPU remains the same going forward, the dividend yield should be around 6.07% and that is above our target. It is worth noting that Ascott REIT and Ascendas Hospitality Trust is in a pretty interesting spot after CapitaLand acquired Ascendas-Singbridge. There is also an open letter by Quarz Capital proposing to merge these 2 REITs due to their overlapping investment mandate.

The total dividends collected this month is $3,101.95. The breakdown is as follows:

Company Symbol ExDate Shares Total
Frasers Commercial Trust ND8U 30-Apr-19 7,500 $180.00
Mapletree Commercial Trust N2IU 30-Apr-19 500 $11.55
City Developments Ltd C09 30-Apr-19 1400 $196.00
Soilbuild Business Space REIT SV3U 25-Apr-19 15,000 $179.70
CapitaLand Ltd C31 23-Apr-19 9,000 $1,080.00
First Real Estate Investment Trust AW9U 17-Apr-19 11,009 $236.70
Pacific Century Regional Developments Ltd P15 5-Apr-19 14,000 $1,218.00

Total dividends collected for 2019: $5,569.79
Average dividends per month for 2019: $1,392.45


Capital: $19,000.00
Current: $20,093.55
