Drip of Dividends – Equities 08/2018

Rebalancing

The market is a constant current of changes. The same happens for the portfolio that I was trying to construct – with many ongoing changes since a few years ago. Till date, I probably had more losses than gains only to realise that the best thing to do was – back to basics. Recalling a few days ago, a conversation with a friend based in Hong Kong. We were discussing what to invest in and what we would each be comfortable to look into. Hence, came the realisation of going into industries that would perhaps provide stability amidst the volatility of the market trends. It is no doubt that every asset class – equities, bonds, metals, real estate poses challenges and many caveats. It is true to diversity and has an all-rounder portfolio as no one can predict the next movement in the market.

That said, the latest portfolio presents a major overhaul of holdings in the various markets.

What’s in?

Malaysia

  • FBMKCL (KLSE: 0800EA) – 300 units
  • YTL H Trust (KLSE: 5109) – 700 units
  • MQ REIT (KLSE: 5123) – 100 units
  • Pavilion REIT (KLSE: 5212) – 100 units

Adjusted the REITs to Personal favourites, and build up the indirect holdings on the main KL composite ETF instead.

It seems to me the MQ REIT and Pavilion REIT have potential growth from looking at the traffic flow at the KL Sentral and Pavilion areas. While it might seem very mediocre to base it upon eyeball shopper traffic, but it gives a real perspective whether to venture out into the Reit in long term. Sometimes, it does make sense to visit the businesses in the Malls to assess the Long-term growth potential that the REITs could potentially provide.

Hong Kong, China

  • New Century REIT (HK: 1275) – 2000 units

Ventured into HK REITs, with the inclusion of the New Century REIT. New Century REIT is a group of hotels under the REIT management in China under the New Century brand as well as Holiday Inn Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

  • Vanguard Total China ETF – RMB (HKEX: 83169) – 100 units

Invested in my first ever RMB denominated stock in the ETF segment.

Singapore

  • Frasers Log (BUOU) – 100 units
  • Cromwell REIT (CFSU) – 100 units
  • Keppel Infrastructure Trust (A7RU) – 200 units
  • Oxley Holdings (5UX) – 300 units

Bought STI ETF and devising a tried and tested investing formula of investing in various instruments from REITs to Corp Stocks to ETFs.

Thailand

  • BTS Corp (SET: BTSn) – 225 units

First foray into the Thai market. In my personal opinion, BTS feels more like a property developer than a train operator given the vast amount of projects is mainly on property developments.

USA

  • Global X SuperDividend® Alternatives ETF (NASDAQ: ALTY) – 18 units

  • HSBC Plc ADR (NYSE: HSBC) – 4 units

Ventured into the Alternatives ETF which invests in alternative income-generating categories such as real estate, MLPs and infrastructure, institutional managers, and fixed income and derivative strategies. Switched out HSBC from HKEx to ADRs.
