Following my last blog on my top 5 holdings, I have been receiving questions from readers on why SPH is on the top of the list (and by the way, it is still there today) There is no special reason - it was partly because I sold the previous top few Reits and then SPH started … Continue reading SPH: Is there a safe level to buy?
