### Sold My 5 Lots of SembCorp at S\$5.14

I sold 1 lot via cash and 4 lots via cpf, let's look at my profit and loss.

1 lot via Cash

On 27 Mar 2013, I bought 1 lot at S\$5.15, including charges the final cost price is S\$5171.88.

On 14 May 2013, I collected a S\$150 dividend.

On 20 Sep 2013, I sold at S\$5.14, final proceeds after charges is S\$5110.63.

Profit/Loss = 5110.63 + 150 - 5171.88 = S\$88.75

Return % =  88.75 / 5171.88 * 100 = 1.716%

Duration = 177 days

4 lots via CPF

On 24 Apr 2013, I bought 4 lots at S\$4.97, the cost price is 19949.68 + 10.70 + 0.54 = S\$19960.92.

On 14 May 2013, I collected a S\$600 dividend.

On 05 Jul 2013, I received a quarterly charge of S\$5.35, so total cost price is 19960.92 + 5.35 = S\$19966.27.

On 20 Sep 2013, I sold at S\$5.14, final proceeds after charges is 20487.96 - 10.70 - 0.54 = .S\$20476.72

Profit/Loss = 20476.72 + 600 - 19966.27 = S\$1110.45

Return % = 1110.45 / 19966.27 * 100 = 5.561%

Duration = 149 days

Total returns for cash and cpf

Total cost = 5171.88 + 19966.27 = 25138.15

Total return = 88.75 + 1110.45 = 1199.2

Total return % = 1199.2 / 25138.15 * 100 = 4.77%

Average duration = (177 + 149) / 2 = 163 days

I think overall not so bad, only the cash part is a bit disappointing, I bought too early and at a price too high, but when it went down to 4.97, I quickly went in with my cpf to save the day, that's the magic of averaging down, so about half a year, I get 4.77% returns, I think it's quite decent, now I'm thinking of what to buy next.
