My Portfolio Nov23

 Summary For November 2023

Portfolio @ End of Nov23

In November 2023, my portfolio value inched up 0.8%. YTD gain is still below 10%.

Gtronic's share price moved up the most by 12.6% in the month, and now we know why.

Gtronic's founder will dispose his entire 10.4% shares to APB Resources Bhd at a price of RM2.00 per share.

To me, this is not an exciting news as it's not good to see any founder exiting his own company.

Furthermore, the buyer APB seems to be in oil & gas fabrication industry and I'm not sure whether it can bring growth to Gtronic.

My Portfolio Oct23


Summary For October 2023

Portfolio @ End of Oct23

Even though KLCI inched up 1.3%, October 2023 was not a good month for my portfolio as it lost 2.1%.

Almost all the stocks in my portfolio suffered loss except MFCB who manage to gain 1.8%, while MI & LEESK were unchanged.

Many stock market investors are hoping for a much better second half but at the moment it seems hard to come by.

Year-to-date, KLCI retreated 3.6% while my portfolio still gain 8.7%.

I'd be happy if my portfolio can end the year with >10% gain.

My Portfolio Sep23


Summary of September 2023

Portfolio @ End of Sep23

In Sep23, Brent oil price went up from USD85 to USD94. As a result, Hibiscus share price soared 18%.

MI also gained a decent 7.5% in the month.

Other than these, other stocks did not change much.

Thanks to the 2 stocks mentioned above, my portfolio manage to gain 1.5% in Sep23, with a YTD gain of 10.9%.

My Portfolio Aug23

 Summary For August 2023

Portfolio @ End of Aug23

It's been a flat month of Aug23. KLCI dropped marginally  (-0.5%) while my portfolio gained 0.7%.

Gtronic gained the most at 10.4% while LEESK suffered the most with a 11.6% loss, probably due to its poor quarter result.

I planned to dispose all my Krono warrants on the first day of trading but I just missed the date.

Thus I only manage to sell off at lower price of 15sen on the second day of trading.

I don't have any potential new stocks to invest in at the moment. I'll consider to top up on a few existing stocks in my portfolio.

My Portfolio Jul23

 Summary For July 2023

Portfolio @ End of Jul23

July 2023 was a rather good month for stock market as tech stocks led the way.

MI's share price jumped 17% while Gtronic gained 14%. JHM was not far behind with a 9.4% gain in the month.

Overall my portfolio improved by 6.4% in parallel with an impressive 6.0% gain in KLCI in the month of Jul23.

In this month, bonus shares of Krono was ex-ed and there was no buy sell transaction for me.

Thursday 13 July 2023

My Portfolio Jun23

 Summary For June 2023

Portfolio @ End of Jun23

My portfolio is rather flat in Jun23 with a marginal gain of 0.3%. Overall YTD still manage to stay in the positive territory of 3.1%.

T7Global started to make some move this month with a sudden surge from 41.5sen to 47.5sen in mid June, only to retreat to 44.5sen at the end of Jun23.

Gtronic made good progress as well with a 6.8% gain in the month.

However, MFCB dropped by as much as 7.0% in June which was somewhat unexpected to me. 

I thought MFCB's share price should be as steady as rock even if growth might be slow. It has dropped from RM3.60 to almost RM3.00 since earlier this year.

Wednesday 21 June 2023

My Portfolio May23

Summary For May 2023

Portfolio @ End of May23

KLCI dropped 2% in May23 while my portfolio dropped even more at 4%, reducing the YTD gain to merely 2.7%.

Tech related stocks seems to suffer this month, with MI leading the pack by falling 15.8%. JHM & Krono both fell by 7%.

Nevertheless, Gtronic still managed to register a 7% gain in the month.

Both Hibiscus and Maybulk also dropped by a massive 10%.

Sunday 21 May 2023

My Portfolio Apr23

 Summary For April 2023

My Portfolio @ End of Apr23

In Apr23, my portfolio inched up just 0.5% while KLCI dropped 0.5%.

MyNews continued to fall after its loss-making result announcement, while MI lost 7.3% may be because investors have anticipated a poor upcoming result.

Uchitec advanced 6.5% after it announced a surprise special dividend of 5sen, bringing its total dividend to 30sen for FY22.

This is a good 9.1% dividend yield at share price of RM3.30.

I added more T7Global's shares into my portfolio and there was no sell transaction in Apr23.

Tuesday 18 April 2023

My Portfolio Mac23

 My Portfolio @ Mac23

Portfolio @ End of Mac23

In March 2023, KLCI dropped another 2%, perhaps due to jittery atmosphere caused by bank failure in the US.

My portfolio could not escape the negative sentiment and retreated 1.3% this month, bringing the first quarter return down to 5.9%.

The biggest casualty in Mac23 was myNews which fell 19.4% in the month especially after it released its FY23Q1 result.

The loss-making result of myNews is somewhat expected but it seems like most investors were very disappointed with this set of result.

I sold part of my myNews shares just before it released its result, as I strongly felt that its share price would surely dive after the result was out.

I didn't sell all shares as I still hope for a miracle like most shareholders.

My Portfolio Feb23

 Summary of February 2023

Stock Portfolio @ End of Feb23

Feb23 was not a good month for KLCI as it dropped 2.1%, extending its YTD loss to 2.8%.

My portfolio performance was flat in this month with a slight 0.1% drop in value.

MI was high flying in late Feb23 after it released its FY22Q4 result. Its share price rose 35% in a month.

However, my portfolio was dragged down by other stocks particularly JHM, myNews & Hibiscus.

There was no buy and sell transaction in this month and the total stocks remain at 13.

Tuesday 14 February 2023

My Portfolio Jan23


Summary of January 2023

Portfolio @ End of Jan23

Even though the KLCI dropped 0.7% in the first month of 2023, Jan23 was generally a great month for most stock investors. 

My portfolio made a good start with a gain of 7.4%.

The share price of Fast rose 42% in Jan23 and I was not aware of it until I made the summary at the end of the month.

Anyway, Fast does not carry any significant weight in my portfolio now since it has already fell more than 90%.

Most tech stocks continue their "recovery" since Dec22. JHM & MI advanced 14.9% & 11.5% respectively which certainly helped to push up the gain of my portfolio.

Review 2022 & Preview 2023

Year 2022 was a bad year to me in term of stock market investment in which my portfolio lost 16%.

The table below shows the stocks in my portfolio at the beginning and end of year 2022. Only 3 out of 14 stocks manage to end the year in positive territory.

These 3 stocks are Hibiscus, Master & Uchitec.

Apart from the hopeless Fast which has already been "impaired" long time ago, JHM & MI are the worst performer of the year with a 57% & 44% loss respectively.

MI was only added into the portfolio in Jan22. At that time, it has already fallen 50% from RM5 to RM2.50.

I didn't buy and sell a lot in 2022. Besides MI, I added LEESK into my portfolio, top up more JHM & Krono's shares and traded LTKM.

This "tech-heavy" move is the main reason that makes 2022 a bad year for me.

I sold and removed LeonFB, Jaks and Master from my portfolio in 2022. It seems like I disposed Jaks too late and Master too early...

My Portfolio Dec22

 Summary For December 2022

Stock Portfolio @ End of Dec22

Year 2022 didn't end with a bang as many investors have hoped for. KLCI inched up only 0.45% in Dec22 while my portfolio improved by only 2.2%.

Overall for the whole year of 2022 my portfolio suffered a 16% loss. This is the second worst annual loss since losing 28.8% in 2018.

Meanwhile, KLCI ended year 2022 with a loss of 4.6% which is worse than 3.7% loss registered in 2021.

Most of the share price of stocks in my portfolio remain quite stable in December, with the exception of Krono & LeeSK which rallied 17% and 15% respectively.

Maybulk dropped from RM0.435 to RM0.36 but there was a 10sen special dividend ex-ed in the month.
