Welcome to my investment blog where I share with you my analysis of REITs in Singapore.

I hope that my investment philosophy will bring me a steady stream of income apart from my job. I am aiming for at least $3,000 per month which can sustain the current expenses of myself and my family.

Do enjoy reading my blog and post any comments that you have. I welcome them because it is a time to learn from each other.

When I am looking at investing in REIT, here are some of the guidelines that I am looking at. Feel free to comment on it. I am willing to listen to ideas.

-> at least 8% yield.
-> Price that is lower than its NAV.
-> Low gearing (if possible)
-> High secured NAV.

Current Dividend income is $3,800/month.

Updating my Current Holdings

Hi everyone,

I have made some changes to my portfolio due to some adjustments to my life. Recently I bought a new car (and sold off my old one) so I have pulled out $24,000 from my investments to pay the first 30% of the car. I took a car loan for the rest in view that this money can be invested for better returns. Moreover, here is one movement that I have made.

Asian Pay Television Trust

While on vacation with my family, I bought APTT on the day of XD at $0.525 (50,000 shares) and $0.53 (50,000 shares) in view to use their dividends to pay off the interests of the car loan and the equity loan that I am taking to pay for my car. With this purchase, I currently has 200,000 shares which are currently valued at $113,000, providing me with $13,000 worth of dividends every year.

With all these changes, here is my current portfolio.

Therefore, this portfolio is providing me with $4,290 of passive income every month on average which can be used to pay my housing loan, my car loan with some to spare.
