Just some quick updates on my portfolio, blog and other things.
As mentioned in my recent portfolio update, I’m looking to reduce my property and REIT exposure and up my growth stocks portfolio.
I closed my Frasers Property Ltd position and part of my Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust position this week upon review.
I was concerned with the debt levels at Frasers Property Ltd. Also, it was not a core position to begin with so it was easy to let it go.
Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust had experienced a boom in valuation following its announcement that it was joining FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Global Developed Index. Fellow blogger B shared a good analysis on why it is a good time to take profits, which I agree with. I decided to take some profits and right size my position a bit. While I remain bullish on the REIT’s prospects, its valuation is a bit on the high side at the moment.
After reviewing my portfolio, the next counters in my sights are SingTel and Keppel Corp. Although I’ll be taking a small loss on SingTel and closing out a 3 going 4 year position on Keppel Corp, I think I can probably find a stock with better prospects out there. What that counter is, I don’t know at the moment.
I’ll be perfectly happy to hold more cash at the moment in the meantime.
Blog reorganisation in progress
Ever since I shifted my blog to self hosting, I’ve been re-examining every aspect of the blog. I’m currently relooking at the way I categorise blog posts and slowly working my way through all my old posts to update them to the new filing system.
On top of my SEO research, tinkering around with blog layouts and content, its been hectic. Just goes to show when starting a blog, you need to figure out your foundational aspects first or else it’ll be a headache sometime down the line.
Dividend Machines enrolment closes tonight 23.59pm!
As mentioned in my post about the Dividend Machines 2019 course, I attended the first Dividend Machines Workshop for 2019 yesterday at the YMCA with my friend who was new to investing. Rusmin and Victor were excellent as usual. While the content examples probably still need updating as mentioned in my past review of the course, it is still a good starting point for investors interesting in dividend investing. My friend also found it extremely helpful for him to start building a screener for himself.
Enrolment closes tonight 23.59pm so remember to sign up here to avoid having to wait another year.
My previous post
In case you missed it, in my previous post, I wrote about why you can’t trust independent valuation reports and my guess on how valuers valued the Hyflux Tuaspring plant. I share some insights from my previous role as an external auditor reviewing these independent valuation reports.
