Portfolio Update December 2018

forex no deposit bonus
The year 2018 was not a good year for most equity investors. The trade conflict between China and US has caused some turbulence to the equity market and the major indices retracted. STI performed badly for the year. When I closed my position on 27 December, STI stood at 3,044.74. Compared to a year ago, it has dropped 358.18 points or 10.53%.

My portfolio value dropped with STI. For the year 2018, it lost 11.64%, without taking dividends received into account. If dividends were accounted, there would still be a lost of more than 6%. Even the traditional year-end rally did not happen. Index was almost flat in December, and so was my portfolio.

No trade was done in December, and total dividend received was S$7,809. Below are my top 30 holdings as at 27 December.

For the whole year, I have invested (including dividend reinvested to collect scrips) S$58,723 in shares. I have shifted my investment focus to bonds, and have invested a larger amount in bond than shares. Somehow my risk appetite has reduced.

Total dividend collected was S$176,000, which was about the same as 2017. This includes dividends from stock, UT and bonds. I expected it to be higher but it didn’t happen.

Going forward, my focus will still be investing for cash flow. I will invest more in bond than stocks in the new year, and will invest mainly in blue chips for their stability and dividend payout.

Wishing all a blessed new year.
