Largest investments updated (4Q 2019).

Friday, October 11, 2019

From my last couple of blogs, readers would be able to get an idea of what might have changed in my portfolio.

Since the last blog, however, I have made another significant investment or, more accurately, reinvestment.

What am I talking about?


Some readers might remember that I reduced my investment in Wilmar significantly in 3Q 2019 in the month of July, booking a pretty decent capital gain in the process.

Wilmar lost its position as one of my largest investments in 3Q 2019 as a result of that move.

I explained that the move was based on technical analysis (TA) and not because I thought Wilmar was no longer a fundamentally good investment.

That meant I would be building up my investment in Wilmar again when the time is right.

I still like Wilmar as an investment today and if you are curious as to the reasons, you might want to read the following:

1. 3Q 2018 passive income: Wilmar.

2. Accumulating Wilmar...

My investment thesis remains, more or less, unchanged.

Wilmar is an amazing business that has gone unappreciated for a long time.

With the IPO of its Chinese subsidiary in the works, Mr. Market is beginning to appreciate the value that is locked within Wilmar.

Since reducing my investment significantly in July, I have been waiting to increase my investment in Wilmar again. 

Although I wondered if we could see $3.10 or even $3.00 a share again, using TA, I decided that buying at $3.60 a share or lower might be a good idea.

This is because even though Wilmar's share price has retreated, the 200 days moving average (200dMA) in its chart is still rising.

The 200dMA is a long term moving average and as it is rising, it should provide a stronger support.

The rising 200dMA is at $3.54, approximately.

Of course, TA simply shows us where supports could be found.

TA cannot tell us if the supports would be tested or not.

So, what to do?

Start buying at $3.60 a share, maybe.

TA also cannot tell us if the supports would hold or not.

So, what to do?

Make sure we don't throw in everything including the kitchen sink.

Anyway, informed by some simple TA, making use of Mr. Market's current depression, I significantly increased my investment in Wilmar so that it is again one of my largest investments.

So, together with Wilmar, what are my largest investments now?

$500,000 or more:

If you are laughing, I hope it is for the right reason.

Largest investments updated (3Q 2019).

From $350,000 to $499,999:

Nothing has changed here.

Yes, AK is so boring.

From $200,000 to $349,999:
*Centurion Corporation Ltd.
*Accordia Golf Trust.
*Development Bank of Singapore.
*OCBC Bank.
*IREIT Global.

So, from having only two members, this group's membership has tripled in size, now boasting six members.

Increasing my investments in Accordia Golf Trust, DBS and OCBC meaningfully moved them up from the lower bracket.

The fourth new member, IREIT Global, made the biggest jump as it makes its first appearance in this list by skipping the lower bracket altogether.

Read related posts at the end of this blog if all these sound new to you.

From $100,000 to $199,000:
*Ascendas H-Trust.
*Wilmar International.

Wilmar returns as one of my largest investments by joining the lowest bracket in the list.

If Mr. Market continues to feel depressed about Wilmar, I would probably be buying more.

Now, remember, when we invest, we have to take into consideration our circumstances and not "suka suka" ride on other's coattails.


Cannot find AK's coattails?

That is because AK doesn't wear a coat lah.

La la la la... lah. ;p

On a serious note, remember to "eat bread with ink slowly."

Don't know how?

How to have peace of mind as an investor?

Yes, peace of mind is priceless.
