Jul 2015 Portfolio

This month I experienced the worst volatility so far since I started my portfolio. The main reason is caused by Greece Crisis, and hugh sell down in ShangHai Exchange. Even when the Chinese government pumped in billion of dollars couldnt help stablised the stock market. Singapore is affected by this and in a sell off mode :(

This month I added Noble into my portfolio.
Its another blue chip but not the one I find it stable because its a cyclical business dealing with commodities. Being a cyclical stock, you cannot judge it based on the PE which is at a screaming high of 30! It is now trading at 6 years historic low and very close to the Lehman Bro's price. Of course, this may not be a good reason to buy because the business is still not doing well. After I bought it, Noble nose dive to about -30%! Tough luck! and I thought it had stablised already :( Also its very much against the principle that I used to follow. But, its for the long term and it will be fine. I am collecting it as it is a blue chip listed in STI index and consistently paying out dividends for 10 years. Now, we just have to wait for its business to turn around :)

  1. Hi Jimmy,

    Nobel gives me fond memory. I have it when it was still a $2+ stock. But I think there is very high chance that Nobel will get kick out of the STI components in Sep...


    1. Yea heard it may be drop out of sti
      The sell off was so strong

  2. Why not have a stop loss even if it is a blue chip, cause we may never know? The price went down for a reason, as a retailer we do not have first hand knowledge like institutional player. We can always get back in, when it go lower. Look at COSCO, it drop from 7$ to now just 38c. Take care.

    1. i buy for dividends
      10/8 they are releasing results and audit findings
      lets hope for the best!
