Monthly Review - April 2016

It was a good month in Apr 2016! My portfolio runs up quite a fair bit.....

20th post on monthly review and the 4th in the year 2016. This will be a short post.

Stock Trades
Bought OUE HT from my rights issue. Sold out COH & KMI.

Options Trades
Many trades were done in Feb/Mar - with strategies of VIOS, Bear Call Spread, Bull Put Spread. 

This month, I received dividends from only 2 holdings. It was from CSCO & T. The total amount collected was $13..36. It was almost 2 times lesser than the same month last year. 

The forwards dividend now:-
ADI = S$3927.12. My goal for ADI is S$5000 for this year. There was an increased as compared to previous month due to the currency exchange rate & additional purchased. I will continue to add new or increase current holdings when the opportunity arises.
DDI = S$10.76. It had broken the $11 ceiling! Let's see if this value maintains above in the year of the monkey.

I posted what is ADI/DDI here and I had updated the income in the Dividend Income & Options Income.
