My Investment Portfolio (July 2010)

It had been a good month as STI moved closer to 3000 points, but ran out of steam at the last moment. Nevertheless, volume in the market is still not strong enough which might explain that most investors are still in the sidelines. Investors might be waiting for more companies to announce their 2Q2010 results before deciding what to do.

For my top 30 stock holdings, not much changes actually except Keppel Corp and SingTel returned to the list mainly due to no price transacted for Viz Branz on the last trading day of this month. Keppel Corp also announced a decent 2Q2010 results which might explain why investors bought into the stock.

For this month, I have accepted the voluntary unconditional cash offer for all my Eng Kong Holdings shares. Armed with the proceeds from that offer, I have bought the following companies from the open market - Asia Food & Properties, BBR Holdings, Bonvests, Colex, CSC Holdings, Engro Corp, Guthrie GTS, Hiap Hoe, Hotel Royal, ITE Electric, King Wan, LHT, Nippecraft, Oniontech, Orchard Parade, OUE, Shangri-La Asia, Singapore Land, Tat Seng, Transview, UIC and UIS.

I have participated in the following scrip dividend schemes - QAF and DBS Group Holdings. I have also subscribed to the following rights issues - Berlian Laju, Hotel Royal, Riverstone and Swing Media.

I have also converted the following company warrants to shares - Asiatic and KSH Holdings. Unfortunately, I didn't get to convert any of my Metro warrants to shares as I have identified better investment opportunities and had invested the funds reserved for the warrant conversion back into the market instead.

Next month, I will reserve some funds for New Toyo and Old Chang Kee rights issue. I am still considering the offer by Khazanah for my Parkway Holdings shares and it is most likely that I will continue to hold onto it.

My Unit Trust Portfolio:


Wednesday, July 07, 2010


The above two companies will be giving out dividend soon and therefore I will be exercising their warrants and convert them to shares before record date in order to be entitled to their dividend payout. Their record date for dividend entitlement are as follows:

1. METRO HOLDINGS LIMITED - 2 Aug 2010, 5pm. Final dividend 2cts per share, Special dividend 1cts per share.
2. KSH HOLDINGS LIMITED - 17 Aug 2010, 5pm. Final dividend 1cts per share.

Warrant exercise form must reach the warrant agent before 5pm on the record date to be entitled to the dividend payout. Therefore, do remember to act early for those who wish to exercise their warrants. If you want to send by post, you would have to send in the completed warrant exercise form (with cashier's order attached of course) latest on the day before record date in order reach them on the record date itself. Otherwise, you will have to visit the warrant agent on the record date personally in order to lodge your warrant exercise form on time to be entitled to the dividend payout.
