I am quite a lazy person hence its very difficult for me to track my cash input and my investment return. Hence to make things easy, my yearly target is to increase my networth by 20% per annum regardless of where my source of wealth is from. I am happy to say that I have achieve this milestone for 2017 in Q1 (hope it stays this way for the rest of year). March has been a month where market has still continue to march upwards with a chunk of my companies announcing their annual result. Nothing much as a surprise for me. I also have a little more cash coming in from my annual bonus. This year is not expected to be great and the bonus is more or less what I expect (did help a little in increasing my networth)
I started the year with around 230K. At the end of the March I managed to reach 280K pretty happy with my progress this year all thanks to Mr Bull and maybe Mr Trump as well. I have liquidated some of my holdings due to the run up.
At the SGX front I have not done anything since November 2016 in which I sold half of my position in Food Empire.
On the announcement front, LKH release their result, stable as expected with dividend unchanged at 6%. I have been waiting for Food Empire to release their result. The result came in better than I expect. Vietnam is growing at double digit, Russia has stablize. The surprise was the dividend announced. I did not expect and dividend to be distributed but its a good thing anyway. That’s about it for SGX.
As I have quite abit of position in HK, I did some transaction this month. Bought into more SASA. Although this company has not been growing much recently, they are pretty stable and a cash cow. I took up a little more position as my average has been a little high. The queues which I witness in HK and Macau on my trip in 2016 gave me the confidence that this business will not be closing down anytime soon. I have had some interaction in InvestingNote and someone pointed out that Belle is not the only distributor of sportswear apparel. True enough Pou Sheng International are in the distributing business as well. In fact, they are mainly in the sportswear business. As a person who likes sports, this segment draws a lot of interest for me. China itself is encouraging their people to have a more active lifestyle and such companies will tend to benefit from such initiative. After driving into the business model and the numbers, I find the company attractive enough for me to take up a position. The price has fallen by quite a bit due to some accounting scandal. The company however has acted in a fashion that draws respect from me. I will see how this goes a few years from now. Hope the investment will turn out well. I will cover my thought process in Pou Sheng in another article.
On the company announcement front, Hui Xian has released their result and I am going to get close to 4% yield on my investment(Yeah!). They managed to eek out better yield even after all the tax changes implemented. That is pretty impressive work for ARA. Bank of China also just release their result. Did not expect them to have better profit. Truth be told, no surprises here. I am still getting 30% div on EPS. Not too shabby. My yield on investment is close to 7%. Not complaining much here. Sasa, CTF and Belle has yet to release their result. Probably got to wait to May or June to see the numbers. Hong Kong companies typically only release their result twice a year unlike SGX, releasing every quarter.
