Milestone unlocked - >$200k stocks portfolio value

Back in Apr, I shared that I'm inching close to $200k portfolio value

3 months down, I have crossed $200k portfolio value, mainly due to recent cash injection to my Tiger Brokers account.

Update on Tiger Brokers portfolio (~SGD$136k)

In my previous post, I had ~9k USD paper gain. 

As of today, with the bloodshed amidst the China tech stocks, and with a good majority of my Tiger portfolio holding their tech and bank stocks, I'm seeing negative.

I will be frank that I had averaged down my Tencent stocks (mind you, the minimum transaction 100 shares) at HKD 470 on 27 Jul 2021. I should have been more patient, as the price dropped all the way to ~420 HKD within a few hours. That's ~SGD$880 paper losses pretty instantly haha.

Here's the distribution of my stocks:

Update on CDP portfolio (~SGD$85k)

Since my start with Tiger Brokers, I've not bought any stocks directly via CDP/DBS vickers which I was using previously. Their fees are just too horrendous compared with Tiger.

Anyway, I have always been seeing red for my CDP because of bad stock mistakes in the SGX market. Stocks like SIA, Singtel, First Reit, Sabana Reit, SIA Engineering etc which I bought at a high are causing paper losses of ~SGD$7k+. 


While I've ~SGD$221k stocks portfolio value, I've technically pumped more than the amount šŸ¤£
I'm no investment guru but I do hope all these are a good hedge against inflation. I will continue to invest instead of leaving my money in the banks.

I finally cross $700k networth, after 1 year 4 months

I wondered how I should kickstart this post - should I be positive or negative about this? After 1 year 4 months, I finally crossed $700k in networth - returning back to where I've been at, back in Dec 2021.  I am disappointed.  For the past many years, I've always been growing my networth, at around $100-$150k/year. I had big plans to hit a net worth of $850k by December 2022, but the universe had other plans for me. Instead, I only managed to reach $646k, leaving me with a $204k gap to my target.  Ever since I became more aggressive in my "investment" portfolio in 2021, being sucked by greed to deploy most of my cash into stocks and crypto, I fell heavily, along with the crashes. Crypto wiped out 5 digits savings, so did the stock market.  To be honest, ever since the crashes and a bad hit to my net worth, I actually didn't do anything special to improve. I didn't make drastic spending cuts, I didn't stop my holidays, I didn't continue investing (no

First CPF top up in Jan 2023 and tax relief concerns

Detailing my yearly CPF top-up and thoughts.  This is my 8th year of top-up. 1. Top-up $2.5k to Medisave via Paynow Did a $2,500 top up to my Medisave, bringing it to 2023 MA ceiling of $68,500. Done the same for my husband as well. 2. On hold - To top up $5.5k to SA or no? Contrary to the past where I top-up at the start of the year, I have decided to hold off the top-up. A) Running out of cash Firstly, I'm running out of cash. I'm berating myself for degrading to the past where I look forward to my monthly income for cashflow. So I can build up my $100k capital in savings account again, given the current high interest environment.  B) Hitting FRS soon = no tax relief Secondly, I'm concerned about reaching FRS too soon.  The FRS this year is $198,800. I'm now sitting on ~$157k SA which means $41,800 away from reaching this ceiling.  I know some people encouraged maxing this out ASAP. But, as I've crossed 6 digits annual income, maxing FRS soon meant lower tax relie

Starting 2023 with extra $9,979.20

Happy 2023~! I woke up feeling not very positive. It seems like I've brought forward my 2022 negative thoughts along. I ought to be more optimistic! Anyway, my best way of welcoming the new year is to count the new inflow of $ and here's my CPF interest for 2022: Have you check your CPF interest yet?
