Dividend Income

I'm getting excited!

I was meddling with my portfolio goggle spreadsheet trying to merge both my Singapore & US listed holding into a summary worksheet. The main objective was to get an overall picture (in percentage) of the individual holding in term of cost and market values relative to each other.

Options Trades

Hi there,

As I will like to have another stream of income, I begin to sell options to generate this small amount every month. Since Oct 2013, realized ROI is ~3.5% till today. As you can read from my Goal, this had already surpassed my this year target. I'm changing this target to be at 4% ROI going forward.

My 1st Purchased of US Listed Business

The 1st US listed stock I bought was in Jan 2014. It was Usana Health Sciences, Inc.(USNA).I will like to give appreciation to the coaches of Mind Kinesis, who had taught me on Value Investing - how to read and interpret financial reports, which important points to look out for when selecting good companies which are undervalue, how to evaluate businesses, how to seep opportunities.......

Recent Buy

Mr Market had been in a free fall for the past few days. My portfolio also had shredded a few percentage down. Do I need to worry about it?

Alert! Been observed that GE had gone into my buy zone. Bought 40 shares at $25 each. Cost per share including commission is $25.13. Based on current quarterly dividend of $0.22, it will increase my dividend income with an additional of $35.20 per year and carry a YOC of 3.5%. dividend payout ratio is just under 60%. Shares are trading relatively cheap with P/E ttm of 19.7 as compare with the industry of 24.3.

What do you think of this buy? Please drop a comment or two....

Contemplating between KO or PEP?

Both businesses had been in my watch list. But right now, I only have enough fund for one of them. Which should I purchase this month? Let's take a look while I think aloud!

The 10 years growth rate on revenue, EPS & dividend of both company were very similar.
