Portfolio - October 2019

How was your 11.11? Did you manage to save money by not buying anything or save money by buying things cheaper? Anyway, we spent close $1k buying "essentials" and random stuff for our new house. According to Lazada, I am a "Savings Master" who had saved $902.78. lol.

Sharing the first (and most expensive) loot to be delivered - PRISM+ X300 Ultrawide Gaming Monitor. The irony is we are not even using it to game, CZM has been complaining that my laptop screen is too small for her to work. Happy wife, happy life.

The current price is $399 and we got it at $334 during flash sale + some voucher.

We also bought a fake Dyson - Dreame V9P Cordless Handheld Vacuum by Xiaomi because the real one is simply too expensive for us. This model is one of the more powerful fake Dyson with 20,000 Pa Suction and 60 minutes usage.

The current price is $219 and we got it at $176. Shall not bore you with our purchases. lol.

Our portfolio reached a new high as it increases by 4.30% to $438,957- $11,816.95 of capital injection and $6,285.25 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"Cash Flow" is the amount of money being injected/withdrawn from the portfolio (buying stocks = +ve cash flow while selling stocks and collecting dividends = -ve cash flow)


We decided to let 2,000 Chip Eng Seng Rights expired.

- Keppel DC REIT (1,900 units) @ $1.710
- Eagle Hospitality Trust USD (10,000 units) @ US$0.570

This was the first time I participated in a rights issue for a stock in my CDP (the majority of my stocks are with SCB in a custodian account). I had to head down to an ATM (troublesome) and there was an administrative fee of $2! Never had to pay a single cents for SCB. Another reason why I will recommend people new to investing to start an SCB online trading account. Anyway, we were allocated 315 rights which I exercised all of them and oversubscribed by another 3,685 units.

There are so many articles out there on Eagle Hospitality Trust so I think by now everyone knows what's going on. Having said that, do take a look at this interesting article by InvestmentMoat where he used Eagle Hospitality Trust as an example to showcase the psychological stress of being in the market - A Strategy to Avoid The Pain of Losses? Don’t Be Naive. We are pretty zen now and the volatility doesn't affect us :)

So why did I buy it? Ignoring the series of bad news and ASSUMING that they will still pay out the forecasted DPU of 6.54 cents in their prospectus, the dividend yield will be around 11.47% and I think it is worth the risk. That's it because we are not a trader and we will just ride the volatility.

The total dividends collected this month is $1,349.85. The breakdown is as follows:

Company Symbol ExDate Shares Total
Suntec Real Estate Investment Trust - Units T82U 31-Oct-19 5,000 $118.25
Guocoland Limited F17 31-Oct-19 9,000 $630.00

Mapletree Commercial Trust N2IU 23-Oct-19 500 $14.65
