My Investment Portfolio (December 2013)

STI ended the year at roughly the same level as the start of it. There had not been much news flow this month as most investors are having their usual December year end holidays. Trading volume was thin. The two half day sessions during the month doesn't help things either. Lack of corporate developments was also apparent during the month as most company staff might be away on holidays as well.

For this month, I have attended the following AGMs/EGMs/briefings - OUE, UIS, Riverstone, Ezra, SIIC ENV, CM Pacific, Miyoshi and Second Chance Properties.

For my top 30 holdings, UIS had been delisted and therefore removed from the list. Pending distributions from the liquidators, UIS will be liquidated. F&N also dropped out of the list after it went ex-entitlement with respect to distribution in specie of Frasers Centrepoint shares. Stamford Land is a new entry in my top 30 list for the first time as I had been accumulating the stock for the past few months.

I have bought the following companies from the market this month - AP Oil, ASL Marine, BBR Holdings, Fischer Tech, Haw Par, Hotel Properties, Hupsteel, Kingboard, Kingsmen, Metro, Popular, Singapore Reinsurance, San Teh, Straits Trading and UOI. I have closed my positions in Elite KSB and Sound Global after their announcement of delisting from SGX. I have also reduced my stake in GRP and Rowsley.

I have accepted the following voluntary delisting/cash offers this month - Asia Power and Devotion Energy Group. I have also participated in the following scrip dividend schemes - AIMS AMP Industrial REIT, Boardroom, Cambridge, MapleTree Industrial Trust, MapleTree Logistics Trust and SP AusNet.

I have subscribed to the following rights issues - Ascott REIT, Technics Oil&Gas and Tiong Seng.

January 2014 is expected to be a quiet month until near the end of the month, where companies having financial year ending September 2013 will be holding their AGMs. I will be attending some of these AGMs to get further updates from the companies.

Hi GH Chua,

I do not see Kori in your investment portfolio. Is this stock worth holding? Thank you.

Hi Faith,

I don't have Kori as I already hold TTJ in my portfolio. Similar to TTJ, Kori is a structural steel specialist. I didn't look at it in details because I find that its PE is a bit high compared to the other similar companies.

Also, it is quite a new listed company and therefore I gave it a miss. Will maybe re-look it in future.

Hi guchua,

Did you attend the EGM of Westminster yesterday, 16/1/2014? Would you mind share some information on what has been discussed in particular the bonus dividend after the disposal of core travel business is concluded? By the way, will there by any interim dividend coming too?? Thank you

Hi Chee Kiong,

Yes. I did attend the EGM yesterday.

Basically, the board didn't commit when asked about the bonus dividend. Chairman said that they will have a board meeting to discuss this issue and will announce the decision later. But he did say that if there is a special dividend to be paid, it will be done within the 1st half of this year.

There is also a question on whether they had put up the business for sale. Chairman said no and the buyer actually approached them and not the other way round. As for pricing and the low PE for the sale, chairman said that they buyer is the best fit and the greatest possibilty of the deal being done. There are other offers but they are all not in the advanced stage of negotiation.

As for what business they are going to inject into the company after the disposal, they are still looking around and open to all options available.
