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...

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).

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).

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?

Dividends collected in Jan: $148.92
2017 avg dividends/month: $148.92 [6.3% down at this stage cf. 2016]

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

Comments:
1. January is a traditional weak dividend month.  Despite the increase in portfolio size compared to Jan 2016, the dividend collected this January was actually lower after the divestment of Boustead.

2. STI has managed to stay above 3,000.  Though not seeing much fundamental changes in the market, the bull is winning at the moment.

3. Current worst performing counter: SIA Engg (18.3% unrealised loss). Still pondering whether to average down...

Reit History: Sabana Reit

There is now an on-going movement by a group of minority unitholders for a proposal to remove the Manager of the Sabana Reit.  This is unprecedented in Singapore Reits.  As a Reit investor, I do hope for their success as this would be a wakeup call for all the other Reit managers.

Sabana Reit is the first and only Shari'ah Compliant Reit in Singapore.  Shari'ah Compliant Reits must have taken a certain level of commitment towards partaking in activities that are deemed to be acceptable according to principles of Islamic jurisprudence.  These include refraining from taking in tenants that are not seen to be aligned with Islamic values such as alcoholic beverages dealers, karaoke lounges, wine cellars, etc.

Beside the need for compliant to SGX listing rules, Shari’ah Compliant Reit is also subjected to Shari’ah audit.

I dug out the short history of Sabana Reit from the Internet and I am particularly interested on its placements and rights issues in the past.

Nov 2010:
- IPO at $1.05. First Shari’ah Compliant Reit in Singapore
- 15 properties in its initial portfolio
- End 2010, unit price $0.98

2011: 
- Acquired 5 properties
- End 2011, unit price $0.88

2012: 
- Acquired 1 property
- End 2012, unit price $1.14 

2013: 
- Private Placement at $1.00 (to acquire 508 Chai Chee Lane)
- End 2013, unit price $1.08

2014:
- Acquired 1 property
- End 2014, unit price $0.94

2015:
- End 2015, unit price $0.72

2016: 
- Divested 2 properties
- End 2016, unit price $0.38
(unit price plunged on news of the proposed right issues)

2017:
- Renouceable Rights: $0.258 (42 for 100) 

I did not follow Sabana Reit in its early days, the early history may not be complete or accurate.  Someone in the know please correct my error(s).

This is another IPO that I missed as I was not in Singapore at Sabana Reit's IPO.  Don't really know if can breakeven now if I got in at IPO?  I have quite a few toxic IPOs over the years, e.g., CitySpring (now Keppel Infra Tr), Yellow Pages, HPH Trust and Rickmers. 

Sabana Reit actually did not ask for money often, unlike some Reits that asked for money every year, e.g. Viva Ind Tr and Fraser Htrust.

Is it enough blood in the street?  I may "busybody" a bit and buy some Sabana Reit.

I do not know which path Sabana Reit will go.  Will Sabana Reit reborn like Macarthurcook Industrial Reit (AIMSAMP Capital Industrial Reit) and Allco Reit (Frasers Commercial Trust)? Buy out like Saizen Reit? Or challenge Indiabulls Trust for the title of the worst Reit/business trust?

Credit Card annual fee waiver rejected

Everything has a first.

After using credit cards for many years, first time has my credit card annual fee waiver request rejected.  The issuing bank is OCBC, so good riddance OCBC credit card.

As a OCBC Bank shareholder, I am happy that the bank try their best to increase their revenue streams.  But as a credit card user, I will not pay the pricy annual fee.

No trouble on my part in cancelling the OCBC credit card, as it is not linked to any GIRO payment.  But if one user has installment payment on the credit card, probably he or she would be forced to pay that pricy credit card annual fee.

By the way, I do not have annual fee waiver issues with Citibank, Standard Chartered Bank and Bank of China.
