May2022 Finance update - Monthly Dividend/Interest received $7.1k

The stock market has recovered nicely toward the last week of May after another round of brutal sell down in the middle of May. My portfolio gain including dividend increased by $20k compared to April and this has improved my YTD Investment gain to 2.75 % and flat if excluding dividend. At this point of time , I considered it is good that I am not suffering any paper or realized loss given the market condition.

May Dividend/interest received is about SGD $7.1K and pushed my YTD Dividend/Interest income received to $28634. It is great to receive significant dividend income amidst a stock market turmoil.  My liquid networth YTD growth has also increased by 3% in May.

In May, I have a total purchase of USD27K of new stocks and sold around USD12k. Net injection of capital is around USD15k this month. YTD capital injection to my portfolio is around SGD50k. This month is the first time my total investment cost of my portfolio has crossed over 1 million USD. 

bought 2 new HKSE counters ( and for their sustainable high yield and they are mainly second string HKSE dividend stocks  On other overseas market, I continue to increase my stakes in RIO and LGEN from LSE .For SGX local market, I added 2 new counters FLCT and Yanlord Land as I feel the two counters are undervalued after some sell down in Mid May. 

The re-balancing of my portfolio has boosted my annual projected dividend income to around 82K in 2022.
