Remembering Lee Kuan Yew


Thank you, Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

Many had been written about you and what you had done for Singapore and its people. Your work and dedication will always remind in my mind. The legacies of your works, inspiration and scarified will live on in many peoples' life. Appreciate the Singapore you had built for us.

We should appreciate life a little bit more. No matter how small or great a man we are, our time here is limited. Appreciate and be grateful of things around us. Be less critical and more forgiving of things and people going against us. LIFE......live.....do something meaningful with it. Make it count!

Options Trade & Recent Buy


With the market behaving erratically volatile, I decided to close the options trade of ARCP. This trade gave me ROI of ~4% for a 21 days of holding.....
  • buy-to-close ARCP Mar 15 9 PUT @0.05

I increased my holding of SDRL @9.73. Will it turn around? Or it will go down to ZERO! Only time will tell. In total, I holds 100 shares of SDRL now.

Incomes

This month, I received dividends from 4 holdings. They are SV3U, SK7, AAPL, PG & AFL. The total amount collected was $101.03. This value gives me ~22.5% increased of dividend income y-o-y. It is always nice to collect increased dividend.

The forwards dividend now:-
ADI = S$2502.34. My goal for ADI is S$5000 for this year. There was a decrease as compared to previous month due to the sold off of EBIX. But I will continue to add new or increase current holdings when opportunity arises.
DDI = S$6.86

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