Portfolio - December 2020

I will be honest, it's much harder to find time to manage our finances/investment or as a matter of fact, do anything with a newborn nowadays. Even if there's some time when the baby is sleeping, there's simply not much energy left and we would always choose sleep over other matters. lol. That's why this month's update took so long.

Anyway, our portfolio reached a new high as 2020 comes to an end! It increased by 4.69% to $669,630 - $8,125.34 of capital injection and $21,898.20 of capital gain. This includes $56,034 of leverage/debt (gearing ~9.13%).

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"Cash Flow" is the amount of money being injected/withdrawn from the portfolio (buying stocks = +ve cash flow while selling stocks and collecting dividends = -ve cash flow)

- None

- CapitaLand Retail China Trust (4,000 units) @ $1.17
- Mapletree NAC Trust (335 units) @ $0.8574

We did not buy anything for a couple of reasons. The main one is we need to save up for CZM and Baby Ong hospitalization/delivery fees this month. The stocks didn't look as attractive after the market went up so much. We did not buy IWDA and iShares Hang Seng Tech ETF (3067) because it is at an all-time high. Yes, I am timing the market but I just couldn't help it. Unfortunately, they just keep going higher @_@"

We got CapitaLand Retail China Trust from its rights issue + oversubscribing and as for Mapletree NAC Trust, we took shares instead of cash for its latest dividend.

I have also decided to increase my SRS contribution to $1,480 per month with the intention of maxing it by year-end.

Our Monthly DCA for December - $4,230
$1,000 Cash - StashAway Risk Index 22%
$740  KPO's SRS - StashAway Risk Index 36%
$250 CZM's SRS - StashAway Risk Index 14%
$740 KPO's SRS - Endowus Loss Tolerance -60%
$1,000 Cash - Syfe REIT+ (100% REIT)
$500 Cash - Syfe Equity100 (100% Equities)

  2. Just wondering, do you guys have separate SCB accounts? Or combined SCB (i.e. in 1 person name) to hit priority banking 200k faster together? Any issues tracking separate stuff? or just counted as a single entity? Thanks!

    1. Hi JD,

      Yes, we combined our investments under my name in order to hit the priority banking status faster to get lower and no min commission. We do not have any issues tracking them separately. Tracking is done using both google spreadsheet and StocksCafe.

      Having said that, we view it as a single entity too as I have a will to indicate everything in SCB will go to her. I guess it is just more motivating to see her own money/portfolio grow if tracking is done separately.
