Average yield year-to-date (Jan to Dec 2021) = 1.94%

Please note that I don’t track the dividends received from Syfe portfolio because it’s automatically re-invested.


Transactions performed

China stock market plunged due to the govt crackdown, so, of course I had to grab this rare opportunity. On 27 July, Lion-OCBC Securities Hang Seng TECH ETF (ticker: HST) hit the rock bottom at S$ 1.067 per share. For comparison, the IPO price was HK$7.75 (about S$ 1.33) in December 2020, and the peak was S$ 1.77 on 15 February 2021.

I did not purchase HST at the rock bottom price because it’s just impossible to time the market. Instead, I entered in 2 tranches in the same day: 1.135 and 1.075. Including transaction fee, my average price is 1.107. Not too bad in my opinion! Right now HST has bounced up a little to 1.154. Should the price plunge again, I will be prepared to buy more.

Other than HST, I did not have any other lump-sum transactions to report.

In the DCA section, it’s my usual monthly Dollar Cost Averaging on NikkoAM STI ETF via OCBC Blue Chip Investment Plan (BCIP) Review, NikkoAM STC Asia REIT via DBS Invest Saver, and Syfe REIT.

In the US section, no new stocks purchase made. In options section, I made $182 profit this month.


Next move

I’ll be watching closely the prices of China stocks. If it crashes again, I might add more.

Now that Bitcoin is creeping up, I’m really considering if I should join the crypto movement. I am still not a crypto convert yet. I’ll do my research and see how it goes.

Other than that, it’s DCA and options trading as usual.

That’s all for this month’s portfolio update. See you next month!
