I am sure this is a blog post which readers will be interested to read now that 2014 is coming to an end and there are no more upcoming IPOs.
In 2013, I didn't blog about it but it was actually a good year for me. I made about $23,467. The top 5 contributors were:
- Linc Energy $6,165
- Mapletree Greater China Trust $4,681
- Money Max $4,654
- Kris Energy $2,391
- Logistics Holdings $2,158
How did 2014 fare? The IPO market in SGX for 2014 is actually quite bad. I think SGX has somehow lost its way...... and is unable to attract good companies to list here. HKSE is definitely the flag bearer in Asia, due partly to its proximity to China.
Funnily enough, I actually had a good year. However, i don't think the performance can be repeated unless SGX is able to attract quality IPOs to list here or i managed to get placement shares in better IPOs in 2015.
2014 was very unusual because i managed to get out-sized placement shares in a few stocks and had been lucky enough to 'run road' fast enough with a profit. (Do note that this route can easily back-fire as well). My returns for 2014 is $31,093. You can see that the top 3 contributors made the most returns for me.
- QT Vascular $12,817
- KOP Limited $12,098
- UG Healthcare $4,696
- Starburst $1,876
- JAPFA $525
I also incurred losses from EMAS Offshore but thankfully, i cut loss very quickly given that i have given it a zero rating.
That's all for now. Here is wishing a readers a Happy 2015 and may 2015 IPOs be a good year for you too.
