1st Quarter 2021 Report. Happy 5 year anniversary

YTD Performance: +28.45%
Performance since Inception: +4600%(?) There are some price data missing so the app calculated those with just last transaction price i made. The time weighted gain probably is not that accurate.

It’s 5 years already. What a fruitful journey. I did quite well so far fortunately.
Let’s do little recap…Started investing in Singapore stocks and some US stocks. Had a wonderful starting year with triple digits returns every year, whether it’s bull or bear (only 2018 so far) markets. End of 2018 start to focus on HK listed companies. I might’ve jinx them that their index fell from peak 33000 when I enter to 28000 in the mist of bull market. Luckily, I did fine with all the riots, trade war, and virus.

I’ve bought a total of 28 companies so far in this 5 year. 4 of them are unprofitable which range from -7% to -34%, they are TianLi Education, Empire Snack, Fuyao, and Pinduoduo. Funny thing is, all of them would be very profitable if I had held them till today. Some were mistakes, some were sold because of opportunity cost which turned out great.

Dividend Investing vs Options Income Strategy – 3Fs Strategy (Guest Post)

Dividend Investing vs Options Income Strategy – 3Fs Strategy (Guest Post)

I’ve been getting quite a bit of questions from some people who have been following my writing for some time and they noticed the recent strategy changes in my equity portfolio and so they wrote to me to understand the thinking behind the idea.

For those who are relatively new to my blog, my equity investing strategy for the past few years entails investing in dividend paying companies in the Singapore market (and more recently HKG market) while hoping for some sort of small growth as part of the overall capital appreciation.

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Brian Halim is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @3Fs and has 2261 followers.

I termed this as the “X+Y” strategy in my past article here or the “6+4″% strategy if you had attended my past talk during the 2018 BIGS Investing Conference.

Until today, I remain a huge believer of investing in dividend paying companies because of several fundamental factors which I will not talked about it in this article.

Like most people, my strategy evolves over time – and I am constantly opening my mind in pursuit of a better strategy that would fit my investing temperament and style better.

There is the CFD, a platform which I have been actively using for the past 4-5 years and activate whenever there is a huge market downturn and constraint for funds.

In the past year since I have also entered the US market, I have also tried out options investing and this will be the main topic which I will today compare and contrast the difference with dividend investing as both of them threw out similar characteristics in the form of cashflow.

I’ve been thinking for a while on how I can structure my answers logically because the strategy fits so well with my own philosophy that it feels very natural to me when implementing, yet it can be foreign to others.

I’ll try my best and hopefully it makes sense.

In this article, I’ll break down the comparison between these few categories:

  • Cash Flow Frequency
  • Predictability
  • Passiveness
  • Volatility
  • Risk Management
  • Leverage
  • Total Return

Mapletree Logistics Trust (Q2 and 1H FY2020/21 Results) – What’s good and what’s bad?

An Analysis of Mapletree Logistics Trust

This post was originally posted here. The writer, Lim Jun Yuan is a veteran community member and blogger on InvestingNote, with a username known as @ljunyuan and has 1429 followers.

Back in September, I wrote a post about Mapletree Logistics Trust (SGX:M44U), where I highlighted reasons why the blue-chip logistics REIT was in my ‘shopping list’ (you can check out the post here.)

Last Thursday (29 October 2020), I have finally added the REIT to my long-term investment portfolio at S$1.98 – in terms of its distribution yield, based on its full-year payout of 8.142 cents/unit in FY2019/20, it is 4.1% (you can check out all the companies in my long-term portfolio investment here.)

What I’m going to do today is to discuss the REIT’s results for the second quarter and for the first half of the financial year 2020/21 ended 30 September 2020 (which was released on 19 October 2020) – particularly its financial results, debt, and portfolio occupancy profile, as well as its distribution payout (the REIT is one that continues to pay out a distribution to its unitholders on a quarterly basis), along with my personal thoughts to share.

Let’s begin…
