Out of the 6 companies on my watchlist that declared dividends last week, 3 met my expectations and 3 didn't. Hence, I called it an "Ok" dividend week. Amongst them, SGX was the bright spot, springing a surprise by raising its first quarter dividend from 5 cents to 7.5 cents. I am just wondering what … Continue reading An “Ok” dividend week, the real show is this week (and starring MapleTree)
What a letdown 😦 Both Keppel Reit and SPH disappoint in their dividend announcements.Keppel Reit just declared DPU of 1.36 cents for this quarter.

I expect the … Continue reading SPH Reit – First to Go

Although I don't subscribe to their views … Continue reading Are Thai Bev, KeppelCorp, Perennial, SIA Engin & CDLH Trust undervalue?
Capitaland Retail China (CRC) at the current price is now my latest target. This conclusion is based on my evaluation of the current yield of selected Reits relative to the last 3-5 years historical yield performance. See chart below.

I received this from a reader recently: Reader: I want to give up investing already. It is so difficult. I started a few months ago and I have already lost 40% of my original capital by investing in equities. Don't you feel insecure when you invest in equities? How do you "stay calm and collect … Continue reading Lost 40% just a few months after started investing
