穷小子's 2017 mid-year accomplishment

We are in the mid of 2017. Many things had happened during the past 6 months, especially with the interest rate hike last month. What 穷小子 had accomplished?

Financial's achievement
Attended quite a few of AGMs this year. Fraser Centrepoint Trust, CapitaComm Trust, and OCBC. Learned quite a few insights from the management of each company. If not due to overseas and other commitments, 穷小子 may have attended more. Anyway there will always be next year.

Not much of purchase in 2017. Banks and REITs are "expensive" for now, REITs price doesn't drop much despite of the interest rates, hence which left with Telcos only. Yes, it is a stormy period for telcos industry now, hope that the brave will be rewarded. They are still in the red, but thankfully only bought in small each time and now sitting comfortably at about 5% yield.

Lady luck is on 穷小子. He managed to get Sanli shares from the IPO. Sold immediately during the pre-open market on the very first day of trading. Closed the position with almost 78% of profits. Thanks for Mr IPO for his 3 chilli ratings.

Health's accomplishments
Only participated 1 run so far this year with 2XU Half-Marathon. Taken supplements during the whole run, and managed to complete the half-marathon without any cramps within 3 hours finally. A Personal achievement achieved. Thinking of hanging up his running shoes and look for other sports to keep himself fit.
IPPT still have not clear yet for this year. Starts to train now before his birthday cycle ends.

Self-Improvement's achievement
Obtained a certifications for the professional area related. Next is to target to complete Beating the Street by Peter Lynch by end of the year.
