Once again, another month of activities in the market news segment with the slight jitters from the Federal Reserve hawkish remarks to the unconvincing US economic reports. Despite this, markets remained fairly unchanged, with slight profit taking for stocks mid month in anticipation of some risks coming from the FOMC meeting and possibly some decisions that might derail the fragile economy.

The lack of market movements, however, did not prevent an active rebalancing of my portfolio during this month. People would quote the sell in May and go away nonsense, but statistically, it has proven to be largely untrue. So stay invested, and if markets shock us to the downside, then stay even more invested, notice I emphasise the word "more". Yes, you know what I am talking about.



Some of the main changes are:

1) Reduction in Croesus Retail Trust position

The recent strength in the units have tempted me to take some profits of my largest holding in my SCB account. Anyway, I was intending to rebalance my portfolio, so what better way to reduce my heaviest position as the shares strengthen and bring it closer in line to the current exposure I have with the other units in my SCB account.

2) Addition of Capitaland Commercial Trust units

Smallish positions was incrementally added as the share prices weakened mid May. Office supply is heading for a glut in 2017, but I am betting on the proven management and solid fundamentals of this REIT to weather through the storm as I continue to collect dividends from it. This is one of the REITs I would look to increase positions should markets take a tumble similar to GFC levels, as I like the way the management has handled previous crisis.



3) Smallish addition to SPH REIT

Share prices of retail REITs weakened somewhat in May, but not to the extent of SPH REIT, as I felt that its solid balance sheet did not warrant its fall in value, picked 100 shares at $0.925. Will continue to monitor and add if it falls further.



4) Smallish position initiated for Kingsmen Creatives

This is a new addition to my portfolio, which caught my attention when the prices fell strongly after its poor financial results. I like the businesses it does but unfortunately, its businesses are strongly correlated with the strength of the economy. The weakened share price since 2015 reflects its poor earnings and dampened investor sentiment. Looking at the price chart of Kingsmen would also point to a much better margin of safety to buy now then before. PB of kingsmen is almost 1, and for service companies like Kingsmen, Neratel and the like, it is really a good bargain to buy some as a bet of value. Do note that Neratel currently trades 4x PB.



5) Full liquidation of Neratel, NOL and Ascott REIT

I have fully taken profit on Neratel as it is selling its income generating payment solution business which is the main reason for me to add to Neratel. Without this business, it would have more volatile earnings and it is more difficult to have some degree on certainty in its income. NOL has reached the agreed deal and it is only a matter of days the offer will be despatched to investors. However, I have decided to liquidate it first so that I have cash on hand to put it into other opportunities since this counter yields nothing. Ascott REIT was something I was looking to trade on strength. Prices fell strongly on the placement issue back in April, and have rebounded since. I still do not like the management fees structure and its exposure to the hospitality business is not really what I wanted as I am in the process of accumulating Ascendas Hospitality. Hence, the full liquidation of Ascott REIT.


Observant readers would have noticed that my portfolio has been reducing in value month on month. This reduction has been largely restricted to my SCB mini portfolio account which is heavy on income stocks. I am looking to reverse this by adding more income focused stocks soon, should REITs and other trusts start to fall on fears of an impending hike in interest rates.

Remember, it does not matter how much you start with, but whether you start the first step in your investment journey or not! That makes a hell lot of difference, in the eyes of compounding that is.
