This month, I closed my Syfe Reit+ portfolio simply because I want to trim and consolidate the number of stocks/funds that I’m holding.
In US stock market, one of the put option that I sold expired in the money, so I had to purchase 100 shares of JD at strike price of $65. Previously I had already owned 100 shares of JD which I purchased at $71.7, so the new shares are averaging down my cost to $68.35.
Besides JD, I also bought 5 shares of AMC, yes the meme stock AMC. It’s a pretty small amount (5*$32 = $164.5) so even if AMC goes down to 0, I won’t lose any sleep. But, if it goes to the moon 🚀, I hope I’ll be able to dine at a Michelin star restaurant 🍽️.
For options, I’ll write a separate post on my options trading recap. You can read all of my trading recaps here.
I’ll be watching the news closely regarding China’s govt crackdown. I might add or sell my China stocks, depending on the price and market sentiments.
Other than that, it’s DCA and options trading as usual.
That’s all for this month’s portfolio update. See you next month!
