Cory Diary : Market Rout

Many investors have a bruising week and so do I. This year is slightly worst because my OCC 5.1% got redeemed which means lesser buffer. The other is my US Stocks though just small percentage, aren't doing so well. Nevertheless as in the past correction since Global Financial Crisis, I don't really worry much.

Just got my Performance Tracker Comparison updated against STI Index. As a reminder, my returns include dividends on top of realised and unrealised returns whereas STI Index exclude dividends. This is more for ease of tracking than anything else.

Enough said. Here's my performance so far this year. YTD -3.8% whereas STI is at - 12.66%.

Interestingly, most of the Reits are doing quite ok despite increasing interest rates. The only larger dips will be First Reit but this more due to sponsor situation. I decided not to average down due to exposure limit control.

The bank has one of largest fall so OCBC and STI ETF got a hit. I mentioned about US stock JD.com earlier and looks like it will be long term hold.

Currently my theoretical max dividend will be around $44k. I've collected $33k so far this year. Obviously, even after collecting those I am -3.8%. STI would probably be around -9% after dividends. So comparison wise I have outperform the index. But seriously is just a referencing purposes. My figure would look even better if I am to include FD, SSB and Treasuries but oh ya that's won't count. :)

Trading will go down for the next 2 months due to business/private travels, new apartment and a "new friend" coming that I have to manage and most importantly my Token battery dies out ... How I wish OneKey can support changing battery DIY. I will try to hold my bullets but I have this feeling is time for rebound ... darn...

Is nice to continue to have a job at current market condition. Cheers !
