April was also a month with bumper dividends. Total dividends and interests received were $880,86 from:
- AUD 116.54 from Telstra Corporation Limited
- GBP 42.63 from BP PLC
- HKD 1,288.31 from HSBC Holdings Plc
- HKD 229.80 from Vanguard FTSE AS
- EUR 73.39 from Daimler AG

- $94.40 from M1
Portolio allocation was 45.58% equities and 54.52% bonds and cash.
Chow Tai Fook was the top performer from total return perspective. It gapped-up on 13 April and broke out it's HKD 8.00 resistance, as the multiyear sales decline had finally shown sign of turn around. Retail sales in mainland China increased 16%, with same-strore sales rising 12% during the three months that ended March 31. Overall retail sales in Hong Kong and Macau grew 1%, and same-store sales rose 4% — the first quarterly increase in three years in Hong Kong and Macau. I sat on +88.95% return from capital appreciation and dividends received. Should I sell and take profit or stand still on the soon-to-be double bagger in my portfolio?
