NWS Holdings Purchased

This morning I purchased some more shares in NWS Holdings (659).

One of the issues I am grappling with at the moment is identifying investments that offer a reasonable yield. The rise in the stock market in recent months has made that a lot harder. NWS Holdings offers a trailing yield of 5.7%. While there is some possibility of the dividend being reduced due to falling income from the toll road operations due to adverse regulatory interference with operations, the size of any such reduction would appear to be both non-material and (I hope) will be overcome in the longer term by rising traffic volumes and growth in other businesses.

I paid HKD 13.00 for the additional shares.
