1st Qtr 2018 : Dividend and Portfolio Update

Is time to calculate our dividend income for 1st Qtr 2018 as financial result for most of the company should had been announced by this time. Market has gone through like a “roller coaster“ ride in 1st Qtr 2008 where it was down by almost 10% at one point and rebounded subsequently. As I mentioned in my early blog post (here) , even with correction of 10-20% from current high in US market , I would consider it still as “ expensive or rich in valuation “ and normal correction in any market cycles.

The Power of Saving

I have written about the “The Power of Divided( here ) and shared my view on the important of dividend throughout my investment journey.  I try to visualize it through the chart as below which I published every quarter in my portfolio and dividend update.

As I am not really good in doing analysis on financial detail for companies or trying to identify the next FANGs type of exponential growth companies, my investment philosophy is quite simple that buying those company with strong fundamental (clean balance sheet with less debts ) and have dividend pay-out regularly. Of course ,buying at right timing especially during crisis will give you a boost in your ROI but one need to take note also on the important of diversification as well.

Fake News : Dividend Income from STE

With increasing usage of internet as main platform of social media for us to communicate and as source of news replacing traditional printed media, corporate and government starts to pay more attention to the problems and consequence of  “fake news “ and its impact on society at large.

Stock Market Crash : DJ just fell more than 1000 points!!

DJ falls more than 1000 points!! STI sinks more than 100 points!! Nikkei 225 plunges more than 1000 points. You will see such news headline on every major financial news portal in last 2 days. Well , finally the long-awaited market correction is here and is quite normal to have market correction of -5 to -15% in any market cycle especially when we have experienced such long bull market sinceGFC in 2008.
We must always remember that market is about “ psychology “ and full of “euphoria and panic “ from time to time…
