My Investment Portfolio (May 2022)

STI closed down more than 3% to around 3232 points in yet another volatile month. The usual concerns are in the markets, plus the added concern on a possibility of a global recession or stagflation.

For my top 30 holdings this month, The Hour Glass maintained its top spot after reporting a decent set of full year results plus increased dividend payout. Bonvests also had a decent run, aided by further purchases from its controlling shareholder. Jardine C&C continued its good run from last month. Laggards include Global Testing, which went ex-dividend. Frencken meanwhile dropped out of the list after posting a disappointing set of result due to reduced margin.

I have bought the following companies from the market this month - Amara, Delfi, EnGro, F&N, First Sponsor, Frasers Property, GK Goh, Hafary, Heeton, Hong Leong Asia, Hong Leong Finance, Hongkong Land, Hotel Grand Central, Indofood Agri, Isetan, Jardine Matheson, Kingsmen, Lian Beng, Lion AsiaPac, OUE, Singapore Land Group, Singapura Finance, TC Auto, Wing Tai and Yanlord. No sale trade was done.

I have participated in the following scrip dividend schemes - Far East Orchard, Global Investments, Tuan Sing, UOA, UOB Kay Hian and Yeo Hiap Seng.

I have accepted Best World's equal access offer. My stake in SPH had also been acquired via Scheme of Arrangement.

As there is quite a decent amount of cash drag due to my slower purchases from the market this month, I will be exploring more opportunities to deploy those funds in the upcoming months ahead. Focus will still be very much be on value stocks, although some growth stocks are starting to look more attractive now due to the recent market correction. I will continue to be cautious when managing my portfolio, as markets are expected to continue to be quite choppy going forward in the short term.

Hi Mr Chua,

I was wondering if you personally use an investment checklist for your investments. If so, could you share them?

Thank you!

Hi Lyonnais,

I don't really have a fixed investment checklist. But normally, I would like to buy stocks that are trading below NTA and preferably pays a dividend. Having said that, I will also not rule out growth stocks trading at above NTA, provided that they have decent growth prospects. Therefore, I am not so restrictive as to limit myself to a checklist of stocks.

Hi faith,

I am just holding onto a very small position in FJ Benjamin. I have not added onto this position for a very long time. I think the company had under performed for the past few years and they have not reacted fast enough to catch on the wave of online shopping.

I understand that they have also added new products and brands into their distribution network. I haven't seen much progress actually and it remains to be seen whether they will be able return to profitability soon.
