Movement in my portfolio in Nov:-
Sold:- Nil
Bought:- CapitaLand Mall Tr, Keppel-KBS US Reit (IPO), Cromwell Euro Reit (IPO), FCOT (DRIP).
Dividends collected this month: $1,738.82
2017 avg dividends/month: $1,124.17 [4.4% up at this stage cf. 2016]

Boring process of building up my passive income portfolio brick-by-brick (bit-by-bit).

Comments:
1. IPO luck? Including the NetLink Trust earlier, it is a "Turkey" for me. The downside is I have more and more small counters.

2. Current worst performing counter: Duty Free Int'l (21.5% unrealised loss). My only counter outside the mainboard.

300K Milestone


As STI is moving steadily upwards and also because of the very busy work schedule, I didn't check my portfolio since the end October update.  

It was a pleasant surprise that when I logged in yesterday, I found that my total portfolio value has crossed 300K for the first time in my investment journey.

While it has been a hard and bumpy ride reaching the 250K milestone in January 2017.  It is all plain sailing getting to the 300K milestone now at November 2017.

I will activate auto-pilot mode from now on.

Dividends collected in Aug: $3,383.58
2017 avg dividends/month: $1,189.81 [2.0% up at this stage cf. 2016]

Boring process of building up my passive income portfolio brick-by-brick (bit-by-bit).

Comments:
1. Bumper month in August.  New highest record dividend fruits harvested.  First time my monthly dividends exceeded $3K.

2. Dividends collected YTD has covered the loss of dividend income from Saizen Reit.

3. Current worst performing counter: SIA Engg (13.6% unrealised loss). SIA Engg has been removed from the STI Index, probably more pressure on its share price.

Comments:
1. SPH turns red. Once upon a time, SPH occupied >20% of my portfolio. Now, it is just about 6%.  I still like my Christmas dividend from SPH.  Will SPH travel the path of Yellow Pages?

2. On a brighter side, I am looking forward to my first 3K dividend harvest in August. 

3. Current worst performing counter: SIA Engg (13% unrealised loss).

Movement in my portfolio in May:-
Sold:- Nil
Bought:- SGX, SIA Engg, FCOT (DRIP)
Dividends collected in May: $2,961.24
2017 avg dividends/month: $1,033.59 [18.9% down at this stage cf. 2016]

Boring process of building up my passive income portfolio brick-by-brick (bit-by-bit).

Comments:
1. Bumper month in May.  New high record dividend fruits harvested However, missed my $3K milestone as UOB will pay dividend in June, unlike 2016.  Well, $3K milestone has to wait till August.

2. Keppel Corp and Sembcorp Industries declined again.  Probably not out of the woods yet. 

3. Current worst performing counter: Silverlake Axis (9.7% unrealised loss). SLA is a new counter added in 2017.  Hmm...

Movement in my portfolio in April:-
Sold:- Nil
Bought:- CDLHT, Silverlake Axis
Dividends collected in Apr: $0
2017 avg dividends/month: $551.68 [38.3% down at this stage cf. 2016]

Boring process of building up my passive income portfolio brick-by-brick (bit-by-bit).

Comments:
1. Big fat "0" dividend in April.  Well, a good rest in April for the dividend harvesting in May.  Set to be a record dividend month for me in May, as 19 of my holdings are paying dividends and my monthly dividends will cross $3K for the first time.

2. Keppel Corp and Sembcorp Industries declined again.  Probably not out of the woods yet. 

3. Current worst performing counter: SIA Engg (13.2% unrealised loss).

Sold:- Nil

Dividends collected in Mar: $343.65
2017 avg dividends/month: $735.58 [38.3% down at this stage cf. 2016]

Boring process of building up my passive income portfolio brick-by-brick (bit-by-bit).

Comments:
1. No chance for further deployment of warchest even after the rate hike in March.  Locking up the warchest for good now.

2. Dividend received YTD 38.3% down due to the lost of Saizen Reit's contribution.  However, 3+9 full year dividend projection finally fully covered Saizen Reit's contribution (inclusive of special dividend).

3. When is Seletar Mall getting into SPH Reit?  Neck is getting long while the waiting game goes on.

4. Long time losing counter Keppel Corp turned positive this month.  The worst of O&G sector could be over?

5. Current worst performing counter: SIA Engg (14.2% unrealised loss).

Movement in my portfolio in February:-
Sold:- Nil
Bought:- Silverlake Axis, Capitaland Mall Trust
Dividends collected in Feb: $1,714.16
2017 avg dividends/month: $931.54 [41.3% up at this stage cf. 2016]

Boring process of building up my passive income portfolio brick-by-brick (bit-by-bit).

Comments:
1. Sleeping giant Capitaland is waking up.  First time the counter is positive since the beginning of this blog.

2. Unable to sell Starhub the first two days after the announcement of the dividend cutAs the price has stabilized, I decided to keep Starhub and will reduce my exposure by adding to other counters.  After all, Starhub still produce a decent 5+% dividend yield.

3. Current worst performing counter: SIA Engg (14.2% unrealised loss).

Starhub...and Capitaland

As expected, the selldown of Starhub was furious on Monday.  Starhub dropped 20 cents at market close.  This means a wipe out of more than one full year of the proposed dividend payout (16 cents) in one trading day.

I also placed 2,000 units of Starhub for sell but did not manage to sell any.  Well, let see tomorrow...

A more happy circumstance for Capitaland.  The sleeping giant finally show sign of waking up.  Capitaland is a red counter in my portfolio since the beginning of this blog and it has turned green today.

Starhub - 20% Dividend Cut

Finally it happens.

I bought Starhub after it lost the English Premier League broadcast rights to SingTel.  The steady flow of 20 cents dividends a year or 5 cents a quarter finally comes to an end.

Starhub announced after Friday market close that the company will be paying 4 cents a quarter or 16 cents for financial year 2017.

Starhub was a good dividend master all these year.  It is one of my core holdings and accounted for more than 20% in my portfolio in my earlier days.

I have gradually reduced my exposure to Starhub over the years and it is now just above 8% in my portfolio.  This 20% dividend cut means about 2% reduction in my dividend harvest.  Painful but still tolerable for a 5+% yield.

I am expecting a selldown of Starhub shares when the market opens on Monday.  Perhaps I should sell some Starhub too?
