I felt a bit unease when DBS reported duplicate transactions earlier this year but decided that it was an one-off incident and continue to hold on to my holdings. With the latest incident, I decided to fully divest my stake. While what has happened do not affect the outlook for DBS and its dividend is likely to increase in the coming years, I still went with my heart. I just do not feel good on the closeness of the two major technical glitches, which in the first place should not happen for such a huge company.
First bought in February 2020, my average price is $21.40 and have sold a few tranches along the way. Including dividend, average gain is about 39% and in terms of absolute value, it ranked number 14 in the all-time gainer chart. So I am happy with this investment and am open to owning DBS again when I feel more confident about it.
