2021 Quarter 2 (Mar to Jun) dividends reached another all time high of $11.5K, thanks to the increasing DPU announced by Frasers L&C Trust and Mapletree Industrial Trust. I'm reinvesting all the dividends received back to the portfolio, which will overtime slowly but surely create a snowball effect. I'm also excited for FLCT to join the Straits Times Index as a component stock - it has come a long way since I bought it at $0.89 during the IPO in 2016!
In other news, my experience in the US stock market was quite short live - I took advantage of the green days in April 2021 to quickly sell off Apple and Alibaba. The growth and tech stocks have been unfairly punished by the US market despite the all-time high earnings releases, due to sector rotation and rising treasury yields. Unfortunately I'm still stuck with NIO shares at a loss, so I'll be holding it for a while for the prices to recover.
