Investing can sometimes be challenging, especially when there is a multitude of variables to consider, ranging from personal finances to macroeconomic issues. The Edge Singapore started its recommendation of stock picks to help readers better understand the various type of stocks that investors of varying profiles can buy, hold and sell.

In 2020, our portfolio of 10 stocks outperformed all benchmarks with a total return of 98.1%. This year, we recommended 10 stocks, consisting of new stock picks and some from the previous year’s portfolio. To recap, our 2021 portfolio started with returns from the previous year’s portfolio. The initial quantity purchased for each of the 10 stocks is shown in Table 1, where the allocation is as close to 10% per stock wherever possible. The portfolio inception date was on Jan 24, 2020, while the start date for the 2021 portfolio was on Feb 18.

Accounting for capital changes and dividends, and excluding exchange rate fluctuations, our 2021 portfolio has performed reasonably well for the two-and-a-half-month period of Feb 18 to April 30. Chart 1 shows the individual performance of each of the stocks for the 2021 portfolio.
