In the month of Oct, my passive income earned is steady at $5.2k. This bring my YTD dividend/interest received from my investment account to $49.5K. One of my counter Accordia was also delisted this month and I made a profit of 8.3k and a capital return of 30K. The profit from Accordia has help to cut my earlier realized loss that occur in March when I sell off some of my riskier investment to 33k . My portfolio has been in the red throughout the year but the dividend collected with realized gain from Accordia delisting, I should be able to maintain positive return for year 2020 barring anymore write off before end of the year.
In the previous month, I received about 26k USD from the proceed of callable bonds. Of which, I recycle about 23K of my new capital into two new positions (Power Assets Holdings and Link REIT) listed on HKEX and increase my BTI stake to 500 shares. This is my first foray into HK listed stocks as they are providing attractive and safe yield compare to some REITs listed on SGX which have been cutting dividend.
I will have another two bonds worth 10K USD that will be called next month. It is creating a headache for me as I could not find any bond to reinvest. Due to the record high bond market, bond yield rate like our bank deposit interest has been dismally low. The return from bond investment is so low that it is out weighting the risk.
