2021 Portfolio Review (Part 2)
 Self Reflection:Stock Market is a dangerous place. However, placing money in the bank would also erode value as the bank interest is near to nothing.The rule "Never lose money" would not be applicable to ordinary investors like myself, who bascially buy and hold.I am not a good stock picker as I had bought/sold some toxic stocks in the past. For example, Rickmers (41% loss), Hyflux (24% loss), Noble Group (15% gain)......There is also a 100% loss in Eagle HTr.  I took on a major project before Eagle's price collapsed.  As Murphy's law dictates, everything gone wrong, even the harddisk of my new laptop crashed with data non recoverable.  After I completed my project, then I found that Eagle has already been suspended. Luckily, only 1,000 shares involved from its IPO.Tal

Investment Portfolio Restructuring
After thorough thought, decided to bring forward the restructuring of the Investment Portfolio.  Original intention was when the stock market experiences bull run shall be a good times to divest those unwanted holdings.  While unsure is the market going on a bull run or the worst yet to come in 2022, weighing out the benefits and risks, pros and cons, restructuring and rebuilding the portfolio now would be a better move.  Moreover, it is also like a psychological clock that the restructuring and rebuilding is due.  The 1st portfolio was started in 1993.  The restructuring and rebuilding to the 2nd portfolio was in 2006, 13 years later.  Now it is the 15th year into the 2nd portfolio, look like time is ripe to make changes again.There is chance that should I di

Here’s How The Stocks Within The Singapore’s Straits Times Index (STI) Have Changed Since 1998
With a history dating back to 1966, the Straits Times Index (STI) was originally coined as the Straits Industrial Index. After 30-odd years, the Straits Industrial Index was eventually succeeded by Straits Times Index on 31 August 1998. The reason for changing the index was to allow the index to cover more sectors and properly reflect the daily trading activities of stocks on SGX (or then-Stock Exchange of Singapore). Established by SPH, SGX and FTSE Russell, the index is reviewed on a semi-annual basis. Companies can be removed and added to the index based on their market capitalisation changes. Since STI’s official inception, the index has undergone several changes. The most recent major movement would be the replacement of SPH with Mapletree Industrial Trust on June 2020. Here, we com

CICT vs MCT: Which is the better investment?
It’s no big secret that we’re a fan of Singapore REITs in general. The good REITs own a portfolio of properties that generate steady rental income and pay a growing tax-free dividend. Besides that, you also get to enjoy some upside in capital appreciation. While the pandemic has affected retail and commercial REITs more so than others, the well-managed REITs that own high-quality properties in good locations will continue to do well in a post-pandemic world. In Singapore, the two largest retail-commercial REITs are CapitaLand Integrated Commercial Trust (CICT) and Mapletree Commercial Trust (MCT). Both own a portfolio of high-quality shopping malls and office buildings in Singapore (CICT also has a small portfolio in Germany), and have a track record of paying a stable dividend.

Guide To REIT ETFs In Singapore
As a Singaporean investor, we might have heard of Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). Individually, these two investment products are popular among investors due to their respective strengths in providing relatively good yields or stable market returns. To meet investors’ interest, Singapore launched its first REIT ETFs on the Singapore Exchange (SGX) in 2016. By combining ETF and REITs, a REIT ETF can provide an opportunity for investors to enjoy both benefits of having a good dividend yield along with diversified returns.

Enhanced COVID measures as good as Circuit Breaker 2.0- Retail Mall REITs on firesales again?
This is shocking news-so many new measures within a day to restrict movement with effect from 16th May 2021 onwards- which is as good as a mini Circuit Breaker 2.0. All retail REITs, Frasers Centrepoint Trust, Lendlease, SPH REIT and Starhill Global began their sharp diving after lunch. Firesales 2.0 came again. Probably good time to start accumulating from today some of the retail mall REITs. Lendlease with 33% holdings in offices in Sky Italia Milan and JEM office tower will probably weather this 1 month storm better. Mapletree Commercial Trust price drop but still looks expensive with a yield that is barely 4%.This mini CB 2.0 is going to kill retail shops again.

REITs Report Card 2021: How Singapore REITs Performed In 1st Quarter 2021
With access to properties and relatively good yields, Singapore investors enjoy investing in REITs. Given that the low-interest-rate environment is here to stay, REITs continue to be able to refinance their debt at attractive levels. The one thing REIT investors need to be watchful about is how COVID-19 will change the way we live, work and play – as these will affect the various property types differently and also in different geographic regions. Even one year after COVID-19 was first reported, hospitality REITs continue to be impacted. Meanwhile, logistics, data centre and healthcare REITs are more relevant than ever.

Things Don't Look Good for Retail Landlords
The massive sell-down in Mar brought many REITs to rare, multi-year lows. This re-ignited my interest in REITs, as I have been out of them for many years due to their increasing debt levels and decreasing yields. However, I passed up the opportunity while I analysed what could be the impact of COVID-19 on REITs. Despite the massive government interventions, things do not look good for retail and F&B companies. And when tenants struggle, their landlords will also suffer. In this blog post, I will examine the potential impact of COVID-19 on 2 retail companies and 2 F&B companies.Before we begin, it is good to recap what are the measures the government has taken to cushion the impact on retail and F&B companies. Wage SupportThrough 4 extraordinary budgets, the government will

Portfolio Updates (December 2020)
It’s finally Christmas and it's the season I look forward to every year and the time for cold weather travel to ski on powder snow. Unfortunately, this time is different. I booked a few flights for travel this year and all got cancelled (including the travel bubble one). If there’s anything good in not being able to travel is that I managed to save more money. I continued investing in stocks and I am blessed that my portfolio has done well this year, particularly my Growth portfolio. Thanks to the circuit breaker, the times spent at home has allowed me to do more personal reflection, come out with an investment strategy and act on it. Despite the US stock market hitting record highs, I believe next year will still be a good year for equities market. The past few months rally is fuelled

Portfolio Updates (November 2020)
November turns out to be a busy month with so many events happening around the world. The biggest news was that Biden won the US Presidential election, and stock market breathed a sigh of relief as Republicans likely gain the senate majority, making the prospect of Biden’s tax hike unlikely.   Also global markets gotten another boost when the news of the major development of Covid 19 broke during premarket hours, expect for tech stocks went on a steep selloff . While investors cheer for a vaccine breakthrough, my stock portfolio performance had been lukewarm at best, as many of my SG portfolio gains were offset by drop in tech stocks. Nevertheless, my portfolio is still in the green with 15.78% (XIRR) returns YTD. Whereas on the east side, Jack Ma’s blunt China’s bank talk

CICT (SGX:C38U): Should there be Concerns over Gearing and Asset Valuations?
In March this year, I wrote about the possibility of REITs having to raise capital through rights issues if Covid-19 were to cause severe declines in asset valuations (What Happened to REITs during the GFC?). Eight months on, this has not occurred, and although I believe that the likelihood of this has diminished, we cannot completely ignore it. In October, I initiated a position in Capitaland Mall Trust (CMT) at a price of $1.91, which has now merged with Capitaland Commercial Trust (CCT) to form Capitaland Integrated Commercial Trust (CICT). As a shareholder, I was curious to assess the likelihood of CICT having to raise capital through a rights issue, by analysing its gearing ratio and asset valuations. I have not ran the numbers to determine the gearing ratio of the merged entity, alt
