My Investment Portfolio (December 2012)

December 2012 had been a quiet month as most investors went on year-end holiday. STI managed to close at around 3160 points. US "fiscal cliff" again dominated the headlines for this month.

For this month, I have attended the following AGMs/EGMs/briefings - GLP, Chemoil, MIIF, Asiasons WFG (now known as ISR Capital), Cougar, LippoMalls Trust, 2nd Chance, Transview, CFM, Miyoshi and Viz Branz.

For my top 30 holdings, Old Chang Kee returned to the list and was a big mover as investors cheered the special dividend that had been declared. United Engineers and Far East Orchard also did well.

I have bought the following companies from the market this month - Amara, Ascendas H Trust, Bonvests, CapitaMalls Asia, Chip Eng Seng, Chosen, EnGro Corp, Haw Par, Hiap Hoe, Hotung, IFS, IPSCOM, Internet Technology Group, Keppel Corp, Koon, Lantrovision, Noel Gifts, OUE, PM Data, Raffles Medical, SHC Asia, Stamford Land, STX OSV, Thai Village, Transview, Tsit Wing, Tuan Sing, United Engineers, UOI and YHI. I had reduced my stake in LionGold as part of my cash extraction strategy - i.e. Sell shares and subscribe to same number of LionGold company warrant.

I have accepted the following voluntary delisting/cash offers - APB, China Farm, Creative Master and Harry's Holdings. I have also subscribed to the following rights issues - LionGold, Oxley and Hai Leck.

I have participated in the following scrip dividend schemes - Cambridge, Sim Lian, SP AusNet and Tai Sin.

January 2013 is expected to be a busy month for me as companies with financial year ending September 2012 will be holding their AGMs. Nevertheless, I will still be posting my investment strategy for 2013 and some of the work plans that I intended to carry out during the year.

My first impression of your portfolio is that you are very diversified. Too diversified, in my humble view. :)

Care to share how your portfolio performed last year?

Hi AK71,

Happy New Year to you too! :)

Hi gemini,

Yes, my portfolio is very diversified as I wanted a broad-based exposure to the market when I was working and investing part-time last time. But since I turned full-time into investing, I have not been adding much new stocks and had been overweighting my better ideas in my portfolio.

Hi Sanye,

I didn't do a detailed return computation for my portfolio for last year. But based on my observation, I should be at least on par with STI after all my expenses.
