Investment Portfolio Update: February 2020

Updated: Mar 18

This is gonna be a quick update on my portfolio for February and a bit into early March. Red is suppose to be an auspicious colour but that is not quite the colour I like to see on my portfolio. Maybe red can be a signal for me to put in more money.



Like most people's, my portfolio has fallen ill as well with market fearing the consequences of COVID-19 on the economy.



Since day 1 when market corrected, my portfolio has recovered a little as total percentage gain was previously at 1% before this snapshot.


For SG listed stocks:

  • Bought Mapletree Commercial Trust at $2.10 with CPF Rare to see this stock to be priced at this level so I thought it is a good time to add some.

  • Bought CapitaLand Mall Trust at $2.30 with CPF Same as the above :>

  • Bought Silverlake Axis at $0.315 It was shocking to see Silverlake Axis continuing downhill by another 20% so I averaged down further to reduce my losses. COVID-19 and the Prime Minister games Mahathir was playing definitely hit this stock like a double whammy.


SG dividends collected (past ex-div):

  • Mapletree Logistics Trust at $0.014 per share

  • Silverlake Axis at $0.03 per share

  • First REIT at $0.013 per share

  • Sasseur REIT at $0.016 per share



US dividends collected (past ex-div):

  • Molson Coors at $0.78 per share


I had recently signed up an account for InvestingNote and churned out this really cool looking chart below.

Portfolio Yield vs STI for Feb 2020

If my portfolio were to be compared with S&P 500, I'm pretty sure it will lose.


So far, I had done most of the buying using CPF because I feel that the worst has yet to come. It appears that market don't understand the effects of COVID-19 on a global economy level and might have just regarded it as a severe seasonal flu. When that changes, fear will inevitably set in which then should be the right time to buy more. Since I have limited capital, it is important to have a plan to capitalize this black swan event opportunity well. Honestly, I still don't have a clear picture but not to worry since we Chinese have a saying that goes like:

"船到桥头自然直"

It means when the time comes, we will know what to do.


Anyway let's just hope that when a market crash do happen, the Singapore economy would be able to recover in a V-shaped manner just like how our minister described.
