Cash - Closing Status 7 August

CDL Hospitality Trusts share price dropped further in this week so l have increased my holding in it from 2 lots to 3 lots now.   It reported a weaker 2Q2013 results due to stiff hotel competition in Singapore and lower corporate bookings.  I am probably stuck with this investment now but l will have no regrets as l will consider it a good problem to have.  This is because of its reasonably good dividend yield of around 6.6% based on my investment costs in it and projected annualized dividend rate by CDL HTrust.  

Invested into Starhub 1 lot before its 2Q2013 results announcement.  Starhub declared the usual dividend rate $0.05 (so, expected dividend amount 1 lot x dividend rate $0.05 = $50) which will XD on 14 Aug and payment date 29 Aug.  As usual, l have eyed my exit selling price to be the  dividend rate.  In this same week l have divested my 1 lot holding of it at $68 nett gain.  The nett gain amount is slightly higher than the expected dividend amount and l have already collected it by 3 weeks in advance.  Of course its share price went up higher but as l dislike trading (and speculating) and always targeting my exit selling price at the dividend rate (or higher than bank deposit rate) so l am always at peace with my investments and divestments.
