My Investment Portfolio (April 2008)

This had been another volatile month. But it is also a sad month for me. Not that my portfolio is doing badly, but I have accepted 4 takeover/delisting offers, namely Robinsons, Sincere Watch, Permasteelisa Pacific and International Capital Investment Limited. I accepted the offer from Peace Mark for Sincere Watch because they changed their mind and decided to delist it from SGX rather than maintain its listing status. For Permasteelisa Pacific and International Capital Investment Limited, it is a foregone conclusion since their delisting resolution had been approved by shareholders.

The offer for Straits Trading from Tecity finally closed with the offeror getting about 89% of the shares at the close of the offer. I didn't accept the offer and remain a shareholder of Straits Trading.

There is also an offer on the table from private equity firm Vega Company for SingLun Holdings. This resulted in a spike in SingLun's share price and that explains why it is currently in my top 30 holdings. Mermaid Maritime also did well this month as I accumulated this counter on weakness last month.

I have also applied for Olam Preferential share issue and K-REIT rights issue this month. Both rights issues come at a very attractive price for long term investors.

Going forward, I will re-invest the proceeds from the above offers into defensive stocks like REITs and business trusts. I will also buy some deeply bombed out China stocks listed on SGX. I will also hold onto my Peace Mark shares (listed in Hong Kong Stock Exchange) from the Sincere Watch offer.
