CPF - Closing Status 6 December

Received the CPF Investment statement from the bank in this week for November month. Have updated CPF portfolio with the correct charges incurred on both investments and divestments made in November month.

Also from the CPF Investment statement, the following dividends were received in Nov'13 :-
$100.00 SingPost
$159.15 Mapletree Greater China Commercial Trust
$212.60 Cache Logistics
$125.00 Tee International

Invested into Ascott Reit 2 lots in this week under CPF portfolio.  In its 3Q2013 financial results, revenue +11% mainly driven by contributions from 17 properties in China, Germany, Japan and Singapore which were acquired in the 2nd half of 2012 and June 2013.  Increase in revenue was partially offset by the divestment in Sep'12 and lower contribution from existing properties in Philippines and Japan (due to depreciation of JPY against SGD).   Its recent rights issue 1.6 times subscribed.  Purposes of rights issue are to pay down its debt, to fund capex and AEI and for general corporate and working capital uses.    The increase in its debt headroom as a result of reduced borrowings will enhance its flexibility in pursuing potential acquisitions and at the same time improve its competitive positioning in the market via AEI plans.  Its gearing level post Rights will improve to 34.3% from 41.1% (end Sep'13 status).    

Invested into AIMS AMP Industrial Reit 2 lots in this week under CPF portfolio.  For its 2Q2014 financial results, NPI +23.6%; available distributable income +28.7%.  DPU +10%.  Its NAV as of end Sep'13 was at $1.52 and its last done share price on this Friday is already at a discount at $1.445.  Earliest debt expiry is in Oct'15. Aggregate leverage of 25.2%.  Portfolio occupancy rate at 98% as of end Sep'13.  Only 3.2% of NLA expiring in 2014.  It recently acquires 49% interest in Optus Centre in Sydney, Australia; which expected to be completed by 1Q2014.

l will know the exact investment costs and divestment proceeds when the bank send the CPF Investment statement to me after month end; which l will then make necessary update to the Total Returns.

  1. How long have you been investing your CPF investment fund?

  2. l do not keep a record of my first investment using CPF so let's just say, June 2004. Back then l do not anything about stock market so l "tikam". When l get to know Mr Market then l started to get greedy and that's when l got into speculative stocks; Olam (realized loss $4474 in Mar'13) and Wilmar (realized loss $3075 in Dec'12).

  3. From 2004 to Aug 2011, l was not active in the stock market. l have very bad memories so l think only two to three trades per year? l did not bother to keep any records of the trades too back then but luckily managed to locate some of it and hence my record of earliest trade using CPF in June 2004.
