Dividend Warrior's Best Quarterly Performance In 10 Years! Another New High!
At the end of March, my portfolio market value hit a new high of S$472,287 with no new transactions done, inching ever closer to that S$500k milestone! I collected a total of $4,320 in dividends and distributions in the first quarter. Power of CD! ^^
Banks and blue-chip S-REITs have been rising steadily through March. Uncertainties from a slowdown in global economic growth, inverted yield curve, potential hard Brexit, and ongoing trade talks between the US and China did not dampen the spirits of the market. I guess the pause in Fed rate hike helped alot in supporting the current 'rising tide'. In my opinion, the interest rate is unlikely to return to its previous high of around 5% during 2006-2007. Firstly, the inflation rate in US and many other developed nations remain historically low. Secondly, the US economy is showing no signs of overheating.
