Updates:
  • Took profit for F & N at $6.13. Made a profit of about $770 after deducting brokerage fees. This represents a profit of ~14.5% over a period of 2 months. Not too shabby I would say.
  • Re-deploy the funds from the F & N sale into 2 lots of FCT and 3 lots of UOB Kayhian.
  • Dividends collected per month increased significantly from $230.69 to $328.24 (Finally cross the $300 mark! ^^)
  • In the month of May, I received $68.70 from CMT, $47.76 from Suntec REIT, $58.56 from CACHE, $126.40 from First REIT, $240 from Neratel, $180 from UOB KayHian, $210 from SPH and $300 from Starhub. 
  • Cash holdings increased from $3,200 to $7, 500. 
All these cash is like a mid-year bonus for me. ^^
So, on behalf of the telecoms and retail REITs, I must say a big "Thank You" to those people who have been diligently using their mobile/broadband services and shopping. :P

I am also glad that I consolidated my portfolio back in March 2011 (after the Japan earthquake). Back then, I re-deploy funds into Singtel and F&N. Now, I am reaping the benefits. Singtel just announced special dividends and I also made a decent profit on F&N.



Forward-Looking:
The market is undergoing a correction right now. I am looking for opportunities. I came up with 2 options.
  1. Go for capital gain: Buy F & N again below $5.60, then profit take above $6.10
  2. Go for long-term dividends and maybe also a little capital gain: Buy SPH below $3.80 and collect ~6% yield of dividends. The price might rise above $4 again in the future.
Anyway, let's see how the market pans out next week.

What will you do with your stocks next week? Sell? Hold? Accumulate? Feel free to share. ^^



Peace Out,
Dividends Warrior

Hi Dividend Warrior

Congrats on crossing your targeted $300 mark :)

For me, I am actually looking at Neratel to expand my dividend portfolio.

Waiting for the right price to enter.


Cheers,
Ken

Hi! I am a newbie in investing. Bought 1 lot of Capsmall Asia at $1.81, and 2 lots of Hutchison Port Holding Trust at an average price of $0.935. However, their stock prices are falling. Any advice? Thank you!

Anonymous, perhaps you should analyze why you bought them in the first place. If they still fulfill your criteria, you should purchase more. If not, then you should cut loss. Simple decisions eh? Either cut loss, do nothing or buy more.

Hi Anonymus,

Like wad Musicwhiz said, if the stocks still fulfill ur criteria, just hold on to them. But I dunno ur reasons for buying this 2 stocks, so I need to make some general assumptions.

If you are buying the stock for a quick profit, the window of cutting loss is over bcos the prices have plunged too low.

If you are buying the stock for dividends and long-term capital appreciation, you should hold on bcos the number of lots you have are small.

You make the final decision.

Hi Musicwhiz,

Life is indeed full of decisions. ^^

Hi Ken,

Thanks for the compliment.

Passing the $300/month line was challenging indeed.

Hi, guys! The main reason why I bought those stocks was for long term appreciation. The main thing which I am worried about is that: what will happen if the prices plunge down even further? Will the stocks ever appreciate? I just want to buy and hold. Please advise. Thank you!

Hi Anonymous,

I think you should keep Capitalmall Asia bcos I dun think it will fall much further.
I am not so positive about HPH trust though bcos business trusts rarely return to its IPO price.

Hi Dividends Warrior.
I'm very interested in the %yield of ur portfolio. if is too troublesome to cal. the yield for every stocks, an overall yield of ur portfolio is appreciated too =)

Im aiming to be a dividend investor too, bt being still a student n need savings to pay my uni fees, currently im jus earning $14/month haha. bt will work towards $1000/month before im 30 =)

With $98,257 on hand, i could potentially target a capital appreciation of 5% a month which will bring me $4912.85 per month. That's a figure worth working hard for. (all the brain work)

And that's the paycheck of at least 3x ITE grads (if one ITE grad earns $1.5k)

To me (personally), dividend method works for deep pockets like wb.. It all boils down to individual risk management / risk appetite. Like what wb says 'buy low, sell high'..

I don't think we should add more (i.e. average down) just because a stock/company/business still fulfill our criteria.

What we should do is to ask, were our criteria the correct criteria? Moving further down a road in the wrong direction will not lead us to the destination.

Hi Darkzion,

Thanks for visiting my blog. The overall dividend yield of my portfolio for this year, 2011 will be about 6% - 7%. Of course, this is thanks to Singtel giving a one-off special dividend. ^^

Dividends Warrior said...

Hi Anonymous,

I am glad to know that u have the ability to get 5% profits per month from ur investments. Keep it up! ^^

I admit my pocket is not as deep as Warren Buffett though. Lol.

Dividends Warrior said...

Hi Anonymous,

Good advice. I will bear that in mind.

That's because Starhub gives 20 cents a year.

These dividends are accumulated since I started investing 2 years ago.

Hi DW,

aspire to be a dividend warrior like you. what advice would you give to me who has only 50k?

Dividends Warrior said...

Hi Anonymous,

Frankly speaking, in the current volatile market. I suggest u stay on the sidelines first. Wait and see for a few more weeks.
