January 2020 - Yaruzi's Portfolio Update

I received a sad news from a close family friend in January, two weeks before Chinese New Year. Our dear friends lost their beloved and only son due to sickness. While I believe wholeheartedly that their son is in a better place now with the loving Lord, I knew it wouldn't be easy to both parents. It'd been a roller coaster for the family as their son went through a few cycle of getting better and worse during the treatment. As friends, my wife and I could only offer our sincere prayer and support during their difficult time. We prayed that our dear friends would continue to receive strength to keep their faith.

In January, I sold Telstra Corporation Limited, making a little profit of 1.57% (CAGR 0.73%) inclusive of dividends after holding for 2 years and 2 months. The reason for selling was to rebalance my portfolio to the telecommunication sector. I also made 2 purchases below.
