My Personal Goal 2010 Updates (Quarter Review)

A quarter of 2010 has passed! The last time I reviewed myself was right after Chinese New Year in February.

1) Goal of achieving $1k average dividends per month, i.e. $12k dividends a year
I purchased 31 lots of Aztech and 45 lots of AIMSAMPIREIT at 0.215 since my last review. In addition, I have bought in another 60 lots of Saizen warrants with the intention to exercise the warrants in the near future, and sold 2 lots of Singtel at 3.12 to average down my 2 lots to 2.89.

Also, I have combined my investing and dividend baskets into one basket ==> long term basket.

The average monthly dividends from this basket stands at about $659, an increase from $569 since the previous update. If Saizen meets my moderately conservative expectations of $12.20 per lot per month, after conversion, I will achieve $720 monthly. This remains to be seen.

2) Goal of setting up ExamWorld to a super big site to help more students

Singapore's first free online short to
medium questions and solutions database

Haven't been updating a lot recently (again)  :(

Time is indeed so limited. What is interesting is although I didn't update much, the page rank of Examworld has increased to 2! There are also some adsense income from this site even though I didn't update much. Enough for a cup of coffee or two a month!

3) Goal of achieving at least USD$20 per month in adsense income.
I have achieved this on average for the last 2 months, and I have crossed the $100 mark again (my 2nd time ever) this month. Look forward to receiving my cheque in June.

Traffic to this blog has increased to about 60 ~ 100++ unique viewers a day, and about 600+ page views a day. I realised that there are many organic traffic coming from search engines for my stock analysis, i.e. Saizen, Starhub, Cerebos, etc... In addition, there are also searches on Noble Group Technical Analysis, of which the surfer chanced upon my blog. Interesting....

4) Writing my own notes for my tuition students, and eventually be able to publish and sell to the different schools in Singapore
I have just started on my new idea/concept a few days ago. My forte is in A level Physics, and I have started on the chapter of Electric Field so that I can help my students understand better at the same time!

Shall not review too much at the moment, but at least I have started FINALLY!!!

5) Goal of reaching $200k networth in equities and MMF
As of now, my networth in equities and MMF adds up to nearly $137k. Extrapolating my current rate of increase tells me that I might not be able to reach this goal by the end of 2010.

Nevertheless, having this goal still sets me in the correct direction! :)

Maybe I shall review my goal at the halfway point again in end-June 2010....


  1. good luck with that. i really wish i can have a side line like you have.


  2. Hi Drizzt,

    thanks. But it was extremely hard work though... Lots of time sacrifice... But I guess for the first few years in the workforce, it should be ok :)
