Share prices of some stocks (2013 vs 2012)

On 27 December 2012, I wrote a blog post on share prices of some stocks. I continued this year with the same stocks and see how they did in 2013.

The share prices were compared between two dates: 31 December 2012 and 31 December 2013. The change column compares price difference between the two dates. (2011 data are given for information.)

What are my findings?

1. The local banks, including DBS, were outperformers. Value of DBS rose 15.2%.

2. Comfort Delgro stood out as a transport company compared with SIA, SBS Transit and SMRT, rising 12.9%. SIA, SBS Transit and SMRT were negative with SMRT losing 31.2% in value.

3. Singtel continued to give value to shareholders, rising 10.9%.

4. Property developers, such as CapitaLand, did poorly in 2013. CapitaLand declined 18.1% because of property cooling measures adopted in Singapore and in China.

5. Sembcorp Industries did well compared with Keppel Corp (4.6% vs 1.7% respectively).

6. SGX and SPH had decent price increases over the year. (3.6% and 2.2%)

On a portfolio basis, the thirteen stocks rose 2.7%, whereas the Straits Times Index hardly moved (+0.01%). Like the STI, the SPDR STI ETF only moved up 0.3%.

If we add dividends of financial year starting 2012 (since results of December 2013 year end not available yet) to share price differences, the change jumped to 6.0% gain.

This portfolio of selected stocks did better than the STI consisting of 30 component stocks and STI ETF.
