7 weeks, 7 cities
Apologies to regular readers (if there are any haha), its been 5 weeks since my last post. As mentioned in my previous post, it’s been a busy end to the year for me. I currently in the midst of my “Asia tour” for the past 5 weeks, with 2 more weeks of work travel to go.
So where have I been? I’ve been to (in order) Bandung, Bangkok, Chennai, Jaipur and Nha Trang, and will be going to Beijing and Zhongshan to finish off my work for the year. Pretty insane if you ask me haha. At least the people are nice and welcoming and I’ve learnt a lot of how business is conducted in all these countries/locations. Will share my insights when I’m back in 2 weeks time.
Portfolio transactions and thoughts
It’s been a relatively busy month on the transactions front, with my purchases made in late Oct/early Nov in the depths of the sell off. I initiated a small position in SPDR STI ETF (SGX: ES3) with the STI was below 3,000 points, added SingTel (SGX: Z74) at 3.03 and bought 1 share of Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) for the lols during the sell-off.
The market has staged a mini recovery, adding m-o-m capital gains of about $2+k. Main contributors of gains relate to Hang Lung Properties, Capitaland Mall Trust and Frasers L&I Trust. Coupled with about $2k of capital injections, porfolio value is almost back to peak levels while time weighted returns has returned to almost flat for the year.
The G20 summit this weekend will be in focus, with Trump and Xi meeting. My personal guess is that it will be a non-event, causing the market to collapse again on Monday.
This year has been a tad disappointing but 1 more month to go to bring myself back into positive territory. Here’s to a great end to the year!
