They chose financial independence over home ownership.

This is somewhat extreme but watch how this Canadian couple chose financial independence over home ownership.  They are in their 30s and,...

Blog about my increasing portfolio value?

Saturday, July 29, 2017

Many of your stocks have risen in price. Examples are CCL, FLT, SGR, CRT, CRCT, RHT. The actual list is much longer definitely. 

In addition to your quarterly reports on your passive income, would you consider sharing the change in the value of your portfolio as well? 

I am sure many readers are interested and it would be inspiring too.

I know some investment bloggers do what you said but I won't because it doesn't gel with my motivations both as an investor and also as a blogger. 

My focus is on investing for income and price movements don't really matter to me as long as my investments continue to do what I expect them to do and one of those things is to pay a meaningful dividend. 

So, sharing my passive income numbers is something I am quite willing to do as this is what I feel would inspire readers to invest for income to help them on their journey towards financial freedom.

Do you feel the same way as the reader or do you feel the same way I do?

I think it is probably more useful to see why I invested in some of the businesses the reader highlighted and to understand my decision making process.

If you are interested, here are a few blogs to read:

Added Frasers L&I Trust and CapitaRetail China.

Added Centurion Corporation Limited.

Added Starhill Global REIT.

I assure you that this is more productive than reading about how the value of my investment portfolio has changed.

Hi AK,

Thank you once again for your sharing. Just like to understand, when you invest in asset play like previously OUE / Guocoland, how to you classified it as in your investing pyramid. S/G/G+I/I?

Hi JB,

There is a growth component and there is a dividend component. So, they fall under G+I.

We can speculate if the value could be unlocked but to me, if it happens, it is a bonus. ;)
