2017 Portfolio Updates

Finally! The last day of SGX was yesterday and I have my stats ready from StocksCafe on my portfolio performance. Now, it is my greatest pleasure to announce that my portfolio has beaten the market, but only by a small margin.

If you’ve been following my previous portfolio updates, you would have known that I had reported in my November updates that my time weighted returns were 13.66%. Well that number has increased to 14.56% over the past month. Continue reading “2017 Portfolio Updates”

November 2017 – Portfolio Updates

Since October, the STI ETF has increased 1.85% in performance. Similarly, my time weighted returns have increased by 2.33% to 13.66%, since G3B holds around 25% of my portfolio. I don’t know if it’s because of the bull market, but Keong Hong and Tat Seng Packaging are slowly revealing their intrinsic value, with both stocks rising very much in the past month as compared to Continue reading “November 2017 – Portfolio Updates”

October 2017 – Portfolio Updates

This post is way overdue, but still needed nonetheless. October was a decent month for both BF and my portfolio performances, and I am quite pleased with it, although not complacent. At the end of October, my time-weighted returns have reached 11.33% with an XIRR of 18.09%. Continue reading “October 2017 – Portfolio Updates”

My new love!

I did not find much information about Tat Seng Packaging on the WWW, except for its most recent annual report released for FY2016. Even its Investor Relations website has only been last updated in 2015. But I wasn’t worried, because their business model is very straight forward and simple to understand – they produce all types of cardboard/corrugated boxes.

I mentioned the three reasons why I bought the company’s shares and I quote it here again. Continue reading “Stocking up on Tat Seng Packaging and its inventory”

September 2017 – Portfolio Updates

September was an interesting month for my portfolio. I experienced a few firsts, and I have got to say that being new in investing helps with being more cautious and less complacent about my decisions.

For the first time, I have experienced a 2-digit percentage point drop in my position with ComfortDelgro stock and learned how to deal with seeing red in my portfolio. Continue reading “September 2017 – Portfolio Updates”

The red in my portfolio – Comfortdelgro down 15.45%

I have blogged quite a few posts about my buy in to ComfortDelgro (CDG) and why I thought it was a good buy. albeit being overvalued when I calculated the company’s actual intrinsic value.

Today, I would have to eat my words. And it is indeed because I chose to pay a premium for the stock in the beginning at $2.33. Continue reading “The red in my portfolio – Comfortdelgro down 15.45%”

August 2017 – Portfolio (and Miss Niao) Updates

Another month has passed and we are already reaching the last quarter for 2017. Time flies by too fast – even more so with my new job assignment.

Starting your career in a new company can be both challenging and destructive at the same time. For one, you could be faced with an immense amount of work that could engulf you too much to the point where you might not be capable of delivering what you are needed to. Yet again, your learning curve would also be growing at an exponential rate and lead you to gain the most amount of knowledge that you need within the shortest period of time.
