My Investment Portfolio (June 2010)

It had been a quiet month due to the World Cup going on in South Africa. Therefore, there is not much activity in the market this month and there had been a lack of news flow as well. Instead of deciding which teams to place my bets on, I have decided to concentrate on the market and decide what stocks to buy.

For my top 30 stock holdings, Transpac Industrial Holdings (i.e. TIH) had been a big mover after announcing that they are going to dispose one of their top investment - Foodstar Holdings Pte Ltd.

For this month, I have bought the following companies from the open market - Action Asia, AsiaMedic, Cache Logistics Trust, DBS Group Holdings, Food Junction, Haw Par, Hengxin Technology, Jacks International, Kian Ho Bearings, Multi-Chem, Pan Pacific Hotels Group, Singapore Land, Singapore Reinsurance Corp, Sin Ghee Huat, Tan Chong International, Tiong Seng, Transview, Tuan Sing and UIS.

I have also participated in the following scrip dividend schemes - Cambridge Industrial Trust, Hotel Grand Central, OCBC Bank, SP AusNet, UOB and United Overseas Australia. I have also subscribed to Lafe Corp rights issue. There are also two new entries into my portfolio this month via distribution in specie - Bund Center Investment (From Asia Food & Properties) and K-Green Trust (From Keppel Corp).

I had made my first sell trade of the year this month - Sunway International Holdings after the company decided to delist from SGX but did not provide an exit offer for existing shareholders.

Next month, I will reserve some funds for Hotel Royal and Swing Media rights issue. It is also very likely that I will accept the voluntary unconditional cash offer for my Eng Kong Holdings shares and I will be looking to re-invest those proceeds back into the market as well.

My First Sell Trade of the Year - Sunway International Holdings Limited

It had to come and it did came. I did my first sell trade of the year after holding onto my portfolio tightly and adding funds back into the market this year.

I did have a long struggle before deciding to do this sell trade, as it is not my intention to sell any of the stocks in my portfolio at this moment as I am a long term investor. But Sunway International Holdings Limited decided to delist from SGX without making an exit offer to existing shareholders and though it is maintaining its listing in HKSE, I have decided to sell away my small stake in this company.

The reason is really cost other than anything else. For one, I will be receiving a share certificate after its delisting from SGX if I continue to hold onto its shares. And in order to trade on HKSE later on, I have to pay for the costs to deposit the share certificate and then incur brokerage charges to sell it off. The cost to deposit a share certificate is not cheap especially for a small shareholder like me.

I guess it is better for me to sell it off at this moment rather than incurring extra costs later on to transact the counter on HKSE.
