Ascendas Reit is Singapore’s first and largest listed business space and industrial Real Estate Investment Trust (“REIT”) with a portfolio diversified across five major segments of the business space and industrial property market. It has 171 properties span across Singapore, Australia and UK which constitute 70%, 14% and 7% by value of the properties respectively. With FED expecting to cut interest rate in July and MAS is considering raising the REITs current leverage limit of 45% to 50%. This have make S-REITs outperform the market and Asendas REITs is approaching it history high price. However, do take note that Ascendas paid dividend semi annually unlike most of the other reits that pay dividend quarterly. I had just sold Ascendas at 3.19 today for a capital gain of 22% as i feel that their price is moving up too fast into an overbought region. Shall buy back this REITs when there is a market correction which i hope that it will happen in the near term. This is just my view and disclaimer applies.

I have sold off Sheng Siong in last year Aug at $1.15 after making more than 20% in capital gain exclude dividend. I am planning to buy it back when there is a significant pull back. Current price is on the high side and the current dividend yield is slightly more than 3%. Sheng Siong is a defensive stock and the upside is limited due to the limitation of grow in Singapore. Their entry into China market may take a few more years for them to bear fruit. You may want to wait awhile before investing in at a better price. Lastly, do take note that recession may not come in the near term, however, market is very "kind", it is constantly giving us opportunities to enter and exit. Grab it when it come.

There are no blue chip stocks that is a must buy. In fact there are several blue chip stocks are a must not buy. A good stock that is currently may no longer be good in the furute. in the 90s, SPH is a good buy as it usually move in a range and give good dividend. However, the market condition has changed, this blue chip stock has been declining Would they able to recover in the future? I would suggest you build a diversified portfolio of fundamentally good stocks and REITs. Rebalance it when the market condition changes. Hope that help.

Below is my brief view of SGX SGX have three main business units: Equities and Fixed Income, Derivatives, and Market Data and Connectivity. The Equities and Fixed Income unit comprises Issuer Services, Securities Trading and Clearing, and Post Trade Services. It revenue and income have been steadily growing ! SGX have revised it dividend policy for this year and will be paying 7.5 cents per quarter for FY 2019 ! WIth today closing price of $7.88, it give a reasonable dividend yield of aound 3.8%. SGX currently is in an overbought region and i have sold off part of the share that was bought in 2 trench $6.90 and $7.40 range. If SGX will to drop back to $7.30 to $7.40 range, I plan to buy in. If drop below $7, will buy even more. This is my view only and please do your own due diligent. Disclaimer applies

Yes, you can and if the trade is not executed, it will be purge off after the market is closed in the next trading day. You can also place a GTD (good to date) order and queue for 1 month. The order will be removed after the expiry date.

I would presume you are asking about SG stocks. SGX have set the rule of minimum bid size for stock For stock price below 0.20, the minimum bid size is 0.001 For stock that the price range is between 0.20–0.995, the minimum bid size is 0.005 For stock price that are 1.00 and above, the min bid size is 0.01 for your case, as the price is above $1.00, the min bid size is 2 decimal places instead of 3. hope that help.

Based on what i know, you can't invest on S&P 500 ETF on a monthly basic. The alternative is to invest in a Unit Trust fund that invest directly into S&P 500 index. The unit trust name is Infinity U.S. 500 Stock Index Fund. You can invest this on POEMS platform from $100 per month and there are no sales charges, switching fee and platform form. However, do noted that you have to first invest $1,000 into this fund as that is the minimum investment amount required before you can commence your monthly investment. Hope that help.

Welcome to parenting soon. My wife just delivered our first born last week and i have done a You Tube video that share on what insurance parent can considered to get for their baby. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPbdiNP-2o4&t=11s We are getting 3 type of insurance for our son 1. Before our child are born, we get a pre-natal insurance that are able to transfer the life plan that come with early and critical illness rider to our child without any medical underwriting. 2. Next is to get a medical insurance that cover congenital illness without waiting period. 3. As children are more prone to accident like knock and fall, we are planning to get him a per accident that also cover infectious disease. These are the 3 key insurance plans that we are getting for our son. While planning for the children, do that note that you and your spouse are also well protected on medical, illness and liability. As for education plan, to us it is not a must, it is a good to have plan. Get it only when you have spare cash and it doesn't affect your lifestyle. Your own retirement planning is more important than your child education plan. I also encourage parent to plan for their own retriement first before looking at their children education plan. Hope that help.

Based on your question, you seen to be keen to invest for dividend using unit trust. This fund is also available at POEMS and the name as Eastspring Investments - Asian Equity Income Fund. It paid dividend monthly and the annual dividend is around 4.75% you can get invest in this fund yourself is you have a POEMS account with Phillip Securities. There are no sales charges, switching fee and platform fee on POEMS By doing that you immediately save a lot of cost on your investment and your dividend payout will sure be higher. However, do take note that this fund invest 100% in Asia Equity which means that the volatility is not low. You may suffer double digit loss in capital when there is a market downturn despite you still getting the dividend. if you plan to invest 100k for dividend income in unit trust, i would suggest you created a diversified unit trust portfolio, spread across 5 to 8 funds to bring down the portfolio volatility and at the same time achieved a dividend yield of 4% to 5% per year. A typical dividend UT portfolio can comprise of 1) Asian Equity fund - for capital appreciation and dividend 2) Asian Balanced fund - for dividend 3) Asian High Yield bond fund - for dividend 4) Global balanced or bond fund - for dividend 5) Short Duration bond fund - for tactical allocation when there is opportunities This allocation would easily bring down your volatility of your portfolio by half and getting about the same amount of dividend when compare to just putting 100k into an equity income fund Hope that help.
