Stock Portfolio (Cash)

The following companies will be contributing to my Nov 2018 Dividend Income:



Among the companies above, I will be looking to accumulate more shares for Ascendas Hospitality Trust and SATS when the opportunities come. Looking forward to getting my money back from RHT Health Trust after the buyout deal. I am not sure if there will be any further dividend since the dividend paid was for the period until 30 Sep 2018. Hopefully, there will still be dividend paid to shareholders after the deal. I will probably stay away from healthcare related stocks moving forward. First REIT and RHT have not been good for my wealth and health so far. keke


P.S - Stay tune to my blog as I will be updating my annual dividend collected for 2018.

Will I Buy Asian Pay Television Trust's Shares?

Disclaimer: This blog post is for entertainment purposes only where I share my findings and opinions about stocks. It does not constitute any buy or sell recommendation. Always DYODD before making any trade or investment decision.

The Figures

I like to check out a company's financial figures in SGX's website before doing further research into a company.

Screencap taken from SGX's website. I am not aware they have business in Singapore...hmmm

Payout Ratio More than 100% for a few years!! Can sustain meh?


Debt/Equity increasing over the years

The Business

Personally, I feel Cable TV business is a sunset industry. Millennials and those who are tech savvy are consuming content on the go or via other channels. This business segment is not likely to grow further unless they could produce original content (such as what Netflix is doing).

From my understanding, APTT offers 300 Mbps maximum speed for broadband access. I do not know what's the highest current speed available in Taiwan. I think the likelihood of broadband prices increase is very low. However, they will need to upgrade their equipment to keep up with Internet speed. There's other choices for internet access such as mobile broadband. 5G another potential threat? In Singapore, broadband prices has also been coming down over the years due to intense competition.

Companies that are technology driven has to be innovative and quick to react to changes in their industry. Remember Nokia? When other handset manufacturers adopted Android OS, they were still stuck in Symbian Era. Imagine if Netflix is still sending DVD or Blu-Ray movies by mail, would they still be around? Customers do not want to wait for days in order to watch a movie.

My Verdict

Even though the company could be undervalue from P/B and PE ratio perspective, I would avoid investing in a company which is operating in a sunset industry and doesn't have a turnaround story to tell.

I Did A "Share Buyback" Today

Disclaimer: This blog post is for entertainment purposes only where I share my findings and opinions about stocks. It does not constitute any buy or sell recommendation. Always DYODD before making any trade or investment decision.

Background

I previously wrote a few blog posts regarding SATS. My purchase price was $4.66. However, I sold off when the price hit $5.44.


Recently, the price has fallen. I am still liking the business and so I decided to buy back the 1000 shares which I have sold earlier.

Who Else Is Buying?

Is now a good time and price to invest in SATS? The company has been buying back it's own shares over the last 2 months. The price which they pay for is between $4.82-4.93.

Screenshot from Spiking

Both revenue and profit of the company is still growing. The dividend has also been growing over the years. Based on my purchase price of  $4.85, my dividend yield would be 3.71%. Even though the current yield is not exactly attractive, I am also looking for capital appreciation in this company. DBS gave a Buy recommendation today: link.

I Will Take More Units Please

Disclaimer: This blog post is for entertainment purposes only where I share my findings and opinions about stocks. It does not constitute any buy or sell recommendation. Always DYODD before making any trade or investment decision.

I just received the DRP letter from Frasers Commercial Trust yesterday. The offer price is $1.3582 for each Unit. As the title of the post suggests, I would be taking more Units again. But is FCOT a good buy currently?


At the time of writing this Post, it has the lowest gearing and P/B among the commercial REITs with local assets in Singapore. P/B is 0.85 based on issue price of $1.3582.

AEI for China Square Central target to complete by 2H2019

Based on the recent DPU of 2.4 cents, I forecast the dividend yield for the DRP's price to be (2.4 x 4)/1.3582 = 7.07%. Alexandra Technopark's occupancy stood at 70.2% as at 30 Sep 2018. Hopefully, the occupancy would improve and give a boost to the subsequent distribution as Alexandra Technopark's AEI should be nearing completion.

The following companies will be contributing to my Oct 2018 Dividend Income:

Some of the above companies are doing pretty badly currently. I would not buy more even if their price drops.


On a side note, I got a pleasant surprise last night when I saw the dividend news from Religare Health Trust. This will probably be the final dividend from RHT following their buyout. The recent result looks pretty bad. It might not be a bad idea to say goodbye to this company. Notwithstanding the bad result, this distribution from RHT would give a bump to my dividend income for Nov.

Freecash Anyone? Part 2

Part 1 link: here

Method 2:

Today, I will share a way how I get free cash in Singapore. It is through a mobile app which is known as soCash. The app could be downloaded through my referer link: here. If download using my link, both of us would earn additional $3 each. Only the referer would earn extra $3 Freecash at the time of writing of this post. Once you download and sign up with the service, you could also refer your family and friends via your own referer link. This app simply allow allows users to withdraw cash from provision shops such as 7-11 instead of the traditional method of queueing at atms. In order to use this app to withdraw cash, a DBS IB account or Paylah! is required. The amount withdrawn can be deducted from either your DBS/POSB Savings or Multiplier account. 

The mobile app can track your location if GPS is on or you may also key in your postal code to check if there's any nearby shops that support cash withdrawal. For first timer, you will also earn free $5 which can only be offset from the amount that you withdraw during your second time using of the app. Overall, you will earn minimal $8 by downloading and using this app. The best part is you can earn even more cash just by withdrawing more frequently.


Minimal withdrawal is $10. I always tell the shop how much I wish to withdraw first in case they don't have sufficient cash.

Earning More

In order to earn free cash everytime you withdraw cash, choose those shops which show PROMO as shown in the screencap below. Click > to view the Promo. From my own experience so far, 7-11 requires purchase. The app would indicate if any purchase is required.



How Safe Is It?

The minimarts are equipped with a handheld device which either generates a barcode for you to scan or they scan a barcode that's generated on your mobile phone. After that, you will be prompted to either using DBS IB or Paylah!. For Internet Banking, you will need to key in your userid and password. After which an OTP will be sent to your mobile phone via SMS. You will need to key in this OTP into the App in order to proceed to withdraw. Upon successful authentication, the minimart's device would also get an acknowledgement that the transaction is valid.
