Nov 2020 - Yaruzi's Portfolio Update

The stock market bounced back from October lows with the news that Pfizer vaccines found to be 95% effective. I received some cash proceeds from the sale of my HDB flat, which I injected into the portfolio. However, my debt had increased significantly with me taking a new home loan. My plan was to reduce the loan amount should the interest rate increased.

I added $115,000 from the sale proceeds and made some purchases. Equity allocation was at 93.25%, with the rest in cash or short term bonds. Return YTD was -4.25%, XIRR YTD was -5.75%, and XIRR since inception turned green once again to 1.87%.

On a personal front, there are a few things going on for me at the moment. I plan to take a sabbatical from blogging to allow me to focus on a few personal priorities at hand. God permits, I'll return to blogging when my situations allow. Merry Christmas and God bless. Amen!

Oct 2020 - Yaruzi's Portfolio Update

A late post, as things got really busy for me at work toward the end of the year. My portfolio's performance was probably at it's worst moment if we looked from the short term perspective. Return YTD was -13.05%, XIRR YTD was -17.05%, and XIRR since inception was -1.14%.

The positive thing was I received the sale proceeds of my flat and injected some of the cash into the portfolio. With a $120K cash injection, I went on a buying spree. As an optimist, I believe the darkest hour will be just before the dawn, and there was no better time to buy except when everyone was fearful. Aside from healthcare and consumer stocks, I also bought banks and other beaten-down stocks like Boeing.
