Portfolio Update (July 2015)

In June, I closed all my positions for my US portfolio as I would need the money for some other use. After selling all the positions and transferred the money back to my bank, I realised I made a huge mistake. I have already had some savings and was ready to transfer them to invest in US stocks.

In June, I closed all my positions for my US portfolio as I would need the money for some other use. After selling all the positions and transferred the money back to my bank, I realised I made a huge mistake. I have already had some savings and was ready to transfer them to invest in US stocks.

I have also closed all my positions for my Singapore portfolio in July after the Ex-Date for SingPost special dividends. Find that it is kind of wasted as the dividend yield that I will be enjoying is actually quite high.

From August onwards, I will be doing some adjustments to my investing strategies to include growth stocks on top of dividend stocks into my portfolio which I will name them as Dividend Portfolio and Growth Portfolio. More of how I intend to execute my new strategy can be found here.

Dividends

SingPost announced a special dividend of 0.75 Singapore cents per share to be paid to its shareholders, bringing the total annual dividend from 6.25 Singapore cents to 7 Singapore cents per share. With the announcement, it will bring my yield for SingPost to 6.77% from 6.04%.

Receiving dividends from GSK and SingPost, my total YTD dividends was up by $136.30 to $396.66 or 3.23% yield.
