This is the month where Starhill announced results of dividends $190. Starhill also announced a new CEO and the purchase of Malaysian properties, which is yield accretive.
A number of my holdings went XD, Capitaland, ST Engg, Aztech, which help contribute to their recent downturn.
A short summary of my holdings:
The total cost is about $109,975, while the market value is about $131,430. This represents an unrealised gain of 19.5%.
The total annual dividends from this combination is $8251, representing an average of $687 monthly. Ganbatte!
AIMSAMPIREIT and SAIZEN REIT will be announcing their results on 12th May... Exciting... :)
As for those in the trading baskets (which I failed to cut loss or employ correct trading strategies), they are still largely in red. The paper loss here is quite a few thousands on a cost of $25,210. Hor Kew and Cosco has given dividends XD and I will treat the dividends as a return of capital and use it to offset the cost price of these stocks.
Trading Basket -- Hoping to sell off
(red = freezer stocks to remind myself of my mistakes)
30 lots of Hor Kew at 0.125
20 lots of LC Dev at 0.21
2 lots of Cosco at 2.67
60 lots of Berlian Laju at 0.117
20 lots of China Sky at 0.245
I had a chance to sell LC Dev at a small profit of 0.215 instead of letting it remain in red now, but I didn't take that opportunity to do so :x
