My Thoughts and Consideration
The price for SGX: HST is an ETF which tracks the biggest technology stocks in China seems to be under pressure possibly due to the USA-China trade tensions and also regulatory risk in China. However, business fundamentals have not change. This will remain as a core position in the portfolio. Unfortunately, the portfolio is lagging the US market due to a heavy exposure into this ETF.
SGX: BTOU fundamental numbers to be be quite stable. In the AGM, the management mentioned that tenants are gradually bringing their employees back to office, with the physical occupancy of 13% in Jan 2021 to 20% as of May 2021. Management are also opened to reviewing potential acquisitions across sectors. This could be good news for shareholders if the property is yield accretive. This will continue to be a core position in the portfolio.
New injections into my SRS might happen at the end of 2021. The injection depends on the potential taxable income in 2021. I’m currently looking into a product that is offered by an insurance company. The investment engine sounds great as it focus on value and growth companies which is the objective of my SRS portfolio.
Disclaimer: this is not and should not be taken as a buy/sell recommendation. Like what Charlie Munger famously said: the big money is not in the buying or selling.. but in the waiting.
