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. 

Incomes
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.

Start of Oil Recovery?

                                                   source: CNBC.com

The recent oil price had been moving lower high and higher high. Had the oil price bottom? Yesterday was the first time in 2016 that the oil price closed above $40. The last time it was at this level was in early Dec 2015. It was just a couple of months back in mid-Jan that oil was at it 12 years low. What a run it has since......Are you betting on an oil recovery? I'll like to hear you out.

Seadrill - Massive Raised of SDRL!!!


source: Google Finance

Another 55% raised in Europe today....will it have the same raise tonight in NYSE?

Friday, 4 March 2016

Seriously??!! Are we seeing a bottom already?


Since the end of last year in Nov 2015, my portfolio had remained for 4 months of negative P/L (unrealised) till last month of Feb 2016. Will this value remain positive by the end of Mar 2016?

Are we seeing the bottom already? Are this just a bear rally only? The general market move in tandem with the raise of the oil price. IMO, I'm not expecting a surge in oil price, but I think it should be range bound between $35-$40. It will still be bad and fundamentally for oil & gas will likely to remain weak, but now I think roughly know the bottom is around $30.

Market will remain volatile and I see it as an opportunity for long term investor, mid term and short too.

Monthly Review - February 2016


18th post on monthly review and the 2nd in the year 2016. As you can see, I'd placed a snapshot of my portfolio summary and if you are interested in viewing the previous months or years figures, you can click on this link.

You will have probably observed that the capital invested increased a little. This was due to the currency exchange rate as my portfolio consist of SGD & USD holdings. There is no purchased nor sale of any holdings this month. This month ended positively with lesser negative values in my portfolio as with the major stock markets.

Monthly Review - January 2016


17th post on monthly review and the 1st in the year 2016. As you can see, I'd placed a snapshot of my portfolio summary and if you are interested in viewing the previous months or years figures, you can click on this link.


This month ended almost 10% negatively in my portfolio as with the great drop in all the major stock markets.  It had been the worst performance I had seen with my holding. Nevertheless, I made 2 purchases to add to my current holding.


Stock Trades

Purchased Singtel@3.60 & FCOT@1.20.

Options Trades

Many trades were done in Dec/Jan - with strategies of VIOS, Bear Call Spread, Bull Put Spread. Here is the summary of the existing open position of options:-

  • sell-to-open SDRL JAN17 13 PUT
  • sell-to-open SDRL JAN17 10 PUT
  • Buy-to-open SDRL JAN17 5 CALL
  • sell-to-open LGCY Jun16 2.5 PUT
  • sell-to-open AAPL Feb16 94/95 Bull Put Spread
Incomes

This month, I should have received dividends from 4 holdings. They were G3B, Z74, CSCO & T. The total amount collected should be $113.61. It is slightly lesser than the same month last year. But I cannot confirmed the amount now as 2 holdings, are held under a custodian account which they had not given me any statement here.

The forwards dividend now:-
ADI = S$3698.41. 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$10.13. It had broke the $10 ceiling! I hope this value will be maintained above in the year of the monkey.

Frasers Commercial Trust Report 1QFY16 Results

This is the first time I reviewed FCOT earning after I initialed a position last year in Nov and most recently with the eroding market sentiment of the general economic. I am satisfied by the reported results, and will continue to add at current price. I will pay attention to the weaker Aussie $ (since 45% revenue from there) and successful renewal of new leases (17% expire in FY16). Let see if the management team continue to execute their tasks correctly.

SoilbuildREIT Reports 4Q FY15 & Full Year Results

On FY2015 result, gross revenue increased 16.4% and NPI by 18.2%. Full year DPU increased by 4.7% to 6.487 cents which translate to dividend yield of ~8.9% based on last Friday closing price of $0.725. Gearing is manageable at the moment, but with persistent weakness in the industrial property sector, and macroeconomic headwinds, let's see if the management team still performed remarkedly in FY2016.

SGX Reports 2Q FY16 Results


I do not like what I see in this quarter result for SGX. Revenue remains unchanged from a year earlier, while operating profit & net profit, both down 4%. The only bright spot, dividend up 1 cent y-o-y. I'll wait to see will the new initiative of SGX Bond Pro contribute to business performance. What will you do if you are already vested? Will you sell them?
