My 15% Portfolio - Changes After 2 Quarters

It is the time to review "My 15% Portfolio". The previous review in the 1st quarter can be read here.

However, do note that despite aiming for a 15% gain this year, the market has not been kind to me. The current change in my portfolio is VERY FAR from it and it will be revealed later on.

Do note that this portfolio was inherited from the portfolio at end of 2017 and their respective share price was restarted on 26 Dec 2017.

Thus, any gain or losses was just based on the price changes over the last 6 months.

Prior to taking a look at the changes in my portfolio, let me emphasize on the following:

1. This portfolio review is calculated from 26 Dec 2017 and the aim is to review the total portfolio gain after 1 year.

2. The counter's initial share prices are their respective share prices on 26 Dec 2017.

3. The gain and loss stated is just a simple calculation of the difference in share prices, ignoring the transaction fees.

4. At times, if stated, the gain could include dividends.

5. This review will include my overseas counters in USA and Hong Kong.

In addition to the current counters in the table above, I have also bought and sold:

Dutech Holdings Ltd - About 5% Gain

I have stated previously that I am moving into a more focused strategy and created a list of 9 Big Ideas that contributed more 60% of my portfolio. With that change, I have reduced the numbers of companies in my portfolio from 26 to 15. My portfolio is currently down about 7.84% since 26 Dec 2017. I am currently holding on to about 17% cash.

Reasons for the drop in the portfolio were due to the following:
1. Singtel and Ellipsiz are 2 of my biggest holdings and they are on a downward trend;
2. My current overseas counters are also in the red very badly. 2 out of the 3 overseas companies have lost more than 20% on paper.
3. Only 2 out of 9 of the Big Ideas are green. The rest are red.
4. Trade war rumors and cooling measures have also caused the market to fall, and indirectly affecting my portfolio.

In Short

The market has not been nice to the retail investors. Many reasons or excuses could be used to explain on why did this happens. But if we believe in our method and due diligence, we should always be able to sleep well at night.

Last night, when cooling measures arrive, I was still able to sleep well because I did my homework.

Here are some past articles I wrote this year about the initial short market correction:

And also a post on the Ultimate Scorecard method I use as well as some words or wisdom:

Hope these articles will assist you to sleep better during these "sleepless" nights.

Please do your own due diligence before you invest in any of the stocks in my portfolio.
