My Investment Portfolio (July 2009)

STI closes above 2650 points at the end of this month. Some investors had been saying about STI hitting new lows a few months back and now some are coming out to say that a "bubble" might be happening in the market. As a long term investor, I will continue to ignore all these noises and concentrate on building my portfolio instead.

I have subscribed to a few rights issues this month - namely NOL, Pacific Andes, Europtronic, Golden Agriculture, Berlian Laju and KS Energy. Other than that, I also bought some small cap names from the market as blue chip stocks seem to be fairly valued to me at this moment.

As for my top 30 holdings portfolio changes, Rotary Engineering had a great run this month which means a place in my top 30 for the first time. Their ability to secure contract in the Middle East certainly impresses investors. Kingsmen Creatives also appeared in my top 30 list for the first time. I like their good cash flow and exposure to big MICE events.

Next month, it will be more rights issues for me. The big ones include StarHill Global REIT, Frasers Commercial Trust and Global Yellow Pages. As usual, I will reserve some cash for these rights issues which means I might not be able to purchase much from the market.

Hi ghchua, good to hear news that are on our side these days. Market has been rewarding to LT investors and I do hope the ride up is still a long boring journey.

Btw, have you considered diversifying into the property market, considering you have a good amount of CPF money that can be monetised to purchase good location properties?

Hi Sgbluechip,

Long term investors will be rewarded. Just remember to stay invested and continue with your investment plan every month, regardless of market condition.

My CPF monies are mostly invested in unit trusts and stocks. Therefore, I do not have any intention to purchase properties for investment. I rather invest in property stocks instead.

Hi ghchua, sorry a bit off topic here. Could you send me an email to sgbluechip@gmail.com? I have an advertising company willing to place an advert on your blog. Fees will be paid upfront. Do let me know if you are keen.

Thanks bro!

Hi Sgbluechip,

I have sent you an email.

Actually, I am not too keen about having advertisements on my blog. But for charity, I am willing to give it a try and donate some of the proceeds to them. :)
