Many features that you see in SGXcafe are requests made by users. I appreciate feedback and feature requests from users, and do my best to make it happen whenever possible. Therefore, if there is any feature that you wish to see in SGXcafe, feel free to let me know!

This weekend, I spent some time working on adding new columns (e.g. annualized dividends % and annualized P&L %) to current portfolio and closed positions, as requested by users.

The new columns tell you how much dividends and P&L you have made from a particular stock or transaction on an annualized basis. I believe it would be useful in at least two situations:

1) For stocks that you have held for numerous years, you will be able to see the annualized dividends % and annualized P&L % that they are generating for you.

2) Having annualized dividends % and annualized P&L % would also allow you to compare various stocks that you might have held for different amounts of time more fairly.

Some users might be overwhelmed by the increasing number of columns in the current portfolio. Please remember that you can always easily personalize the columns displayed here.

I would love to hear how this new information helps you in your investment journey.

Happy investing!

Becoming an Angel Investor
Last week, when I shared my portfolio in another article. I received comments privately from several people such as "50 stocks in your portfolio?!?! I think 30 should provide more than enough diversification", "Have you heard of Warren Buffet's 20 slot rules?", "Why are you holding so many different stocks?" etc. Well, there are a few reasons to this. 1) I have yet to devise or find a sound approach ...

A Simple Trend Analysis of Dividends
One factor that affects whether I purchase a stock or not is how much dividends it gave out last year, and for how many years it has been doing so. This is because when I purchase stocks, I am hoping mainly to benefit from dividend gains rather than capital gains. One obvious question would be: how much can we rely on the dividends that was paid out in the past to predict future dividends? One might ...

Coming Back Soon: Dividend Information and More
It has been two weeks since my last update. I am happy to share that most administrative issues with SGX and third party data providers have been handled. Next on the list would be to tackle the technical issues of integrating data that I have licensed into SGXcafe. I have already started integrating dividend information, since this is something numerous users have been asking me about. At this point ...
