My portfolio for the month of Feb 2013 has hit an all-time high and leap across the S$150K mark for the first time in my life. This of course, has been aided by the uptrend movement of stocks across STI recently especially since the beginning of the year. Almost all of my stock holdings are hitting their 52 week high, other than my poor Noble of course :( I will also be receiving dividends this month mainly from my core Reits holdings of FCT, ART, First Reit and PLife Reit. This is what I like about REITS. They give me quarterly dividend payments to boost my opportunity funds.
 
For the month of Feb 2013, I'm pleased to have added a conglomerate bluechip that I really like for a long long time - Sembcorp Industries. The first time I wanted to add the stock was when it hits a low of around $3.50 back during the Euro Crisis in 2011. But heck, I added FCT at 1.45 and ST Eng at 2.80 so no complaints really. The reason for my purchase for SembInd is due to its fair valuations (PE = 12+), strong operating cashflow from its growing utilities business, revenue recognition from its stake of the marine business from Sembcorp Marine and dividend payout shortly in May. In my opinion, there's no reason why this conglomerate industries should trade lower than its peers like KeppelCorp or ST Eng. I think this would be a really good growth company to own with.
 
On the sell side, I've started taking profits mainly on FCT and Neratel, two of my bigger holdings. Many have asked whether I've traded them as casually or as often as it is but the fact is that I would love to keep them long term but the recent uptrend within a few weeks have led me to exercise my exit strategy earlier than expected.
 
I still have little opportunity funds left for small purchases so I would keep them first until I see good opportunities around. On my watchlist is currently Noble and YZJ, both of which are due to report earnings shortly.

On my US Portfolio, I didn't make much additions for this month other than the small tiny addition to MRK, a healthcare company which I like and provide decent dividend yield at 4.1%. I will be monitoring my US Portfolio within the next few months to see if there is good opportunity to enter.
