 As I write this towards the end of october 2020, market has fallen below 2500. Lots of reds when i open up the screen during the time of writing this.Counters added this month : P&O, Oriental Holdings, Miramar Hotel and DBS.I am doing more research on the UK dividend counters before getting some of them. As usual, a good sustainable yield with a past history of being able to raise dividends. I am looking at counters like rdsb, gsk, lgen, national grid etc. As usual, each counter would probably occupy 1% or less. So objective would be to avoid losers, rather than ability to pick winners, that's good enough. ( thanks to kind friends for their gracious non-selfish sharing)Cash flow is the key in this kind of down market, no cash flow, can forget about buying anything without selling

 On 28th Sep 2020 Frasers Centrepoint Trust announced another equity fund raising to raise approximately S$1.33 billion to part-finance the acquisition of the remaining 63.1% stake in PGIM Asia Retail Fund.  The equity fund raising comprised on a private placement at $2.35 per unit thereby raising S$575 million.  A preferential offering for existing unitholder of 290 unit for every 1000 unit at an issue price of S$2.34 raising S$759 million.  As an unitholder since 2016, I was eligible for the preferential offering.  So is it a no brainer and just jump in to take up the offer ?Unfortunately, the answer is NO.  I did a check as in May 2019, they also did an equity fund raising of private placement and preferential offering to raise S$421 million to acquire a 33

Portfolio and dividend update September 2020
This is my update for the month of September.  This covid crisis has accelerated my overseas investments, namely into the HK and Malaysia markets. Might go into the UK market also, should attractive opportunities present themselves. Diversification and adding of good dividend paying stocks with a solid track record of paying would be the foci here. Absorb volatility in prices, as these are beyond anyone's control, with adequate holding power and use cash flow from dividends to add more dividend stocks to further enhance cash flow.Dividends coming in frequently is still a delightful experience , with as frequently as twice a day to once in a few weeks.Cash flow is the key in this kind of down market, no cash flow, can forget about buying anything without selling anything.Cheers!!!Comin

Hong Kong Property Companies
 Quick notes on 3 HK property cos:Link REIT  - Yield 4.55% (at HKD 63, year ending March 2020 results), 100% payout ratio, mostly 50 year property leases  - Neighbourhood shopping centers, a bit like FCT in Sg.  Largely unaffected by economy/covid.  - Good LT track record growing assets without raising cash from shareholders, but yield too low for me, esp with 100% payout ratio.Wharf REIC:  - Yield 6.3% (at HKD 32.10, end Dec 2019 results), only 50% of CFO paid out, mostly freehold property.   - 75% operating profit from one mall: Harbour City.  Overall high exposure to luxury/tourism: 81% rental from leather, fashion or jewellery.   - Luxury brands are reducing their footprint in HK: eg: LV closing their Times Square store after Wharf

Stock Market Updates with Bank Stocks and REITs
Global stock markets (S&P500, STI, KLCI, HSI, SSEC, etc) have been bumpy over the past few months. US Covid-19 condition is still critical, affecting the confidence of V-shape recovery of stock market, as well as the coming US presidential election in Nov 2020. Some investors worry of possible double dip, dare not take any action now. Crisis is always opportunity but an investor has to apply the right stock investing strategy.At the same time, Singapore stock market is lagging, major bank stocks, DBS Bank (SGX: D05), OCBC Bank (SGX: O39), UOB Bank (SGX: U11) are under correction after MAS guidelines to cap the dividend payment of banks to 60% of last year (implying if dividend yield is 6%, would become 6×0.6 = 3.6%), disappointing many passive income investors. However, the
2020-09-01 06:48:51
So far in my many years of investing, this is the toughest period. Not sure how long more it will last, maybe 1 more year, 2 years. And the economic impact and the time to recover might take longer. The recent SATS results, the management estimated that the recovery might take up to 2024. That's a long time more, 4 years! Lot of unprecedented events, lots of companies such as HSBC and Malaysian banks etc which never skipped dividends previously, now not paying. And a lot of others are reducing their dividends. Many of these are not lousy companies which are not making money or on the brink of collapse, but are stellar blue chips like the banks, both in singapore and overseas. And in US, stock markets have recovered to almost the same as precovid levels. Incredible by itself when

S-REIT Report Card: Here’s How Singapore REITs Performed In Third Quarter 2020
Apart from just manoeuvring an economic downturn in 2020, everyone is also combating a very real health threat. The combination of this has also led to major disruptions in the way we live, work and play, accelerating economic trends that should have been years in the making. Along with this, the properties – including REITs – that enable us to live, work and play have all been impacted. In the short term, volatility may spark sharp rises and dips in market prices, in the longer-term, some types of properties may become less relevant entirely. In our REITs Report Card, which we publish each quarter, we look at how S-REITs have performed as a whole and individually. How Have Singapore REITs Fared In The YTD 2020?

How to invest in Singapore REITs for passive income – a beginner’s guide
Retail investors are drawn to real estate investment trusts (also commonly known as REITs) because of the passive income they offer. Sinagpore REITs can fetch a decent yield, ranging between 5-8% per annum. While REITs are great vehicles to build a dividend portfolio, you will still need to pick the right ones at the right price in order to grow your portfolio and maximise your dividends. So what are REITs? REITs are investment trusts that pool investors’ money to buy and own income-producing real estate. These properties are leased out to tenants who, in turn, pay rental income to the REIT. Like all property investors, REITs can also acquire new properties, enhance and improve existing ones, or increase rental rates to grow their income. As an investor, you are entitled to

Investment Portfolio Updates-9th August 2020
It has been a long time since I last updated my investment portfolio. The March'20 market crash was very sudden. I have remained invested mostly throughout this dark period. The major change I made was to shift out more of my more stable REITs from my CDP account into the margin account to avoid the possibility of a margin call in the event of a sucker's rally and to prepare for another potential market crash.1. Retail REITsThe retail REITs which I am holding in the margin account such as SPH REIT, Frasers Centrepoint Trust and Lendlease right now are still down by 20% to 30% from the pre-market crash. Dividends have been cut drastically also. I remain cautiously optimistic that once the COVID-19 vaccine become successfully rolled out by end of the year or early next year, the devastating
