Another brutal sell down for global stock market toward the end of April . My portfolio gain including dividend was cut by $26k compared to March and this has reduced my YTD Investment gain to a meagerly 0.31 % and -1.8% if excluding dividend. It has been a relief that the portfolio did not sink to negative territory with the dividend received.
April Dividend/interest received is about SGD $5.8K and pushed my YTD Dividend/Interest income received to $22641.
It is great to receive significant dividend income amidst a stock
market turmoil. My liquid networth YTD growth has also decreased by 0.66%. in April as a result of my investment portfolio decline.
I continue increasing my stakes in a few HKSE counters and they are mainly second string
HKSE dividend stocks added last month. I increased my stakes in NWS
holding(659.hk) , Cosco shipping (517.hk), Pacific textile (1382.hk),HKBN (1310.hk) and BABA. On other overseas market, I also bought RIO, LGEN from LSE and JEPI in my US IRA with dividend received in that account.
For SGX local market, I added MIT, EliteC and Prime Reit.
the sale side, I sold off about 18k USD of my company RSU and cut
some loss on 3067.hk and 1313.hk to deploy on other counters. Another of my USD bond counter was called as well and release another 10K USD cash.
The rebalancing of my portfolio has boost my annual dividend income to around 80K in 2022.
