We made it to another month and now comes the portfolio update. The month has been cold, and so is our portfolio. There’s currently no change in the stock holdings. Just that the percentages moving up and down.
Philippine Stock Portfolio
|P / L %
|San Miguel Foods and Beverages
To start off, my portfolio went down year-to-date -1.57% compared to the PSEI +7.25%. Nothing to say much, since we just started the year.
US Stock Portfolio
There’s no change in the portfolio for US stocks.
|P / L %
|Twenty-First Century Fox
Real Estate Portfolio
There is one new addition to our real estate portfolio.
|Type of Property
|P3,500 / mo
|P5,500 / mo
We are now doing the paperwork of acquiring the new property, so its already considered mine. We also have contacted a third party to do some renovation. To our surprise, a lot of people reached out to us showing interest in renting the house. So we can expect to rent it out immediately once the renovation is finished, with no downtime. Cashflow on the very first business day.
Setting an Income Target for Real Estate
I’m gonna get married soon. And I’m gonna need some cushion for income. The dividends from stocks are all good for me when I was single since I can always skip on some meals to last to the next dividend payments. But when I have a family of my own, that won’t do. I need to have some stable monthly source of income to depend on, for the rainy days (and economic crashes, most especially). So I decided, that I have to grow this monthly income from rent to around P10,000, P20,000 then lastly, P50,000 per month.
It may be fun to see the progress and have it documented on this blog. From a measly P2,000 a month to 10,000 to 20,000 and to 50,000. Maybe, we can go as far as P100,000 or even P1million a month. Who knows? 🙂
