"July 12" - Transactions Update

July has been a rather busy period for my portfolio as it undergoes a restructuring process as I decide to sell my low dividend yield stocks which coincidentally had a run-up in July.

On my Singapore portfolio, I have sold my positions notably in Comfort, CMT and CMA, all of which had a run up of more than 10% from my purchase price. These are without a doubt good blue chip stocks to have in any portfolio but with a low dividend yield of below 4%, i decided to sell them.

With some cash on hand, I decided to purchase Neratel, Noble and AHT. I am most pleased with my purchase of Neratel as within a few days after my purchase, they went to announce their dividend of $0.04.

Noble has been performing rather disappointingly, which is one of the reason why I have purchased them albeit at a much slower rate than the others, thus allowing me to average them down should I see the need to.

There has been much discussion regarding Ascendas Hospitality Trust (AHT) IPO on whether the stock is attractively valued at $0.88. The opening day on Friday was disappointing, especially that we know the IPO was oversubscribed. With a dividend of almost 8%, I guess it'll be a good buffer for now.

On my US portfolio, I have sold off all my positions in Halliburton. Though not much gains in terms of dollar value, it has went up about 10% from my purchase price.

Another reason why I decide to sell HAL is also because I still have an open position at Schlumberger (SLB), which I deemed much more attractive than HAL and could further spike up on any ECB or Fed news. Even if not, the price I bought at is attractively enough for me to hold on to the position for now.
