I always had one eye on Asian Pay Television Trust (APTT).

So did some of my friends. It is the ultimate Financial Independence Porn Stock.

Why is this so?

To find out how much you need for financial security, or financial independence or retirement, you can read my article here to determine your number.

From the article we get the following formula:

Wealth Required for FS/FI/RETAnnual Expense/Rate of Return of Your Wealth Machine(s) to Generate Cash Flows for FS/FI/RET

APTT pays a quarterly dividend and the last guided dividend was $0.01625. Annualized the dividend is $0.065.

The price chart above shows the current share price to be at $0.315.

This Keppel KBS US REIT Rights Issue and Withholding Tax Debacle (Guest Post)

This Keppel KBS US REIT Rights Issue and Withholding Tax Debacle (Guest Post)

One of the most traumatizing experience for shareholders of Keppel KBS REIT was the announcement of the acquisition of Westpark Portfolio in Redmond.

Keppel KBS is a Singapore listed real estate investment trust (REIT) which owns 11 office assets in 7 key regional markets in the USA.

Westpark is a portfolio of 21 buildings located in the Redmond area, most famous for being where the original Microsoft resides. Keppel KBS proposed to acquire this portfolio for US$170 mil.

By all accounts for their first acquisition, things should not be so traumatizing. I am not sure if its due to the rather negative overall market sentiments or what but the share price of Keppel KBS have fell 23% since the announcement of the acquisition.

At one point it was 3 cents away from the price the rights was priced at (US$0.50).

I think analysts and bloggers have written enough about it. What I would like to do is to gather some personal notes on what transpired so as for me to revisit next time.

Attractive Dividend Yield Even Before the Acquisition

The chart above shows the timeline of all the events that happen till now (the rights issue have not been concluded yet)

We all know that the financial world is full of uncertainties and risks. To survive in an unpredictable market, investors need certain financial instruments to mitigate the risks that they are facing.

To mitigate this risk, modern finance has come up with a method called hedging. Derivatives are widely used to hedge against risks and uncertainties, although not limited to just hedging.

Derivatives have been increasingly gaining significance in the financial market. The popularity of derivatives has grown manifold since the year of 2000.

Here is an infographic for a quick overview of the derivative market and the difference between market makers and direct market access (DMA):
