Miss CDxD bought her first stock


Like most people who do not dare to enter stock market due to hearing many horror stories, I finally persuaded Miss CDxD (will be Mrs CDxD in Feb 2018 :D) to use her CPF money to buy her first stock.

One of the biggest push factor for her is seeing my dividend cheques in the month of Aug 2017 (See post here).

Yes, I opt for receiving all my dividend in physical cheques so that I can touch, feel and smell the cheque rather than 1 liner cold and untouchable sentence appearing in my ibanking transaction (See post here) .



The first stock which I purchase on behalf of her is ..................................................
                                                                         
                                      
                                     
                                     
                                     
                                     
                                     

                          3000 shares at the price of $3.68 on 9th Oct 2017


                                                                           
I find that it is more stressful to select her first stock than when I am selecting the stock for myself due to:
1) It is her very first stock
2) It is her money
3) Her trust which she given it to me

If for whatever reason the price tanked, this might be her very last stock too due to lost of confident.


                                                                   Why Singtel???

I believe this article sum up the reason perfectly why I choose Singtel for her - http://aspire.sharesinv.com/51018/3-reasons-why-singtel-might-make-a-turnaround/

As per Robert, he foresee that the next stock crash will be bigger than the last one.
 
Of cause, he did state his disclaimer "I hope I am wrong"

Quick summary:

  • Added: Bought 4,000 shares of Singtel on 5th Jun at $3.82
  • Bought mainly due to the launch of NetLink Trust IPO & upcoming dividend 10.7cents in Aug which I believe will push the stock price higher due to this 2 factors.

  • Contra: Bought 100,000 shares of Q&M at $0.655 on 9th Jun and sold off at $0.665 on that day 
  • Profit of $134.17 for FIFO in 1 days - 0.2% Profit

  • Lesson learnt: First time trying Short Sell and pay an expensive lesson fees for it :(
  • Although $1000+  might not seem to be huge amount to some, but that amount almost equal to my whole Q2 dividend collected *ouch x 10*
 
  • Added: Bought 500 shares of Keppel Corp on 21st Jun at $6.19
  • Bought mainly due to average down my Kep Corp price, O&G might be near bottom and Kep Corp have property sector to act as buffer while waiting for O&G to recover

FIFO: ComfortDelgro



After my first successful contra trade on Singtel few days ago, I made my 2nd contra trade on ComfortDelGro on 20th Feb.

Seeing the price went down few days ago to near 52wk low, I bought 13,000 shares at $2.41 on 20th Feb.
As this is intended for contra, therefore, I had to sell it within T+3.
The price hardly move during these 4 days and I sold it at $2.43 on 23rd Feb, just barely enough to cover the trading fees and made only $44.57 as profit in 4 days.

This is a far cry from my first contra profit from Singtel of $917.02 (Click here).

I feel it is not easy to play contra and luck do play a huge part in this.
