My Portfolio & Dividend Updates (End Nov 2020)
Monthly update on my Portfolio percentage breakdown and dividends received (if any).
It’s almost the end of the month, so it’s about time to do a portfolio update. (:
My portfolio listed here consists purely of equities only, and excludes social security (CPF & SRS), debt instrument holdings (i.e. bonds & SSBs etc), emergency funds, as well as personal savings.
As such, any returns from the excluded items above (e.g. dividends from CPFIS, bond coupons and interests from CPF/savings accounts etc) will be excluded in the total amount in the 'Dividend Updates' section below as well.
Portfolio Breakdown by Securities
For the month of November, I sold a majority of my DBS Group Holdings Ltd (D05) holdings.
As much as I discourage trading since it can be a risky speculation game which often does not end profitably, I am still guilty of trading a tiny bit once in a while, purely for some action. I still advise all my friends and readers to buy and hold a well diversified portfolio long term. In this case however, D05 is one of those stocks that I bought for trading purposes, and I am glad that I was lucky enough to make a small profit from this transaction.
Given that this small profit was unexpected, I would like to do my part and pay-it-forward to the wider local community by donating a part of the profit from this transaction. I would be donating S$200 to a local charity, and it is my sincere hope that this S$200 would be able to help another fellow Singaporean who might need it more than me, especially in a difficult time like this.
Other than that, I didn't do any other further additions or reductions to my other holdings this month.
Received a small dividend payout for the month of November from both local and overseas stocks.
My total amount of dividends received since the start of 2020 thus now stands at S$3,808.46, giving me an average dividend amount of S$346.22 monthly from January till November 2020.
Note: Dividends are recognised after ex-dividend (EX) date.
