Dividend Income – October 2017

Dividend Income

I apologize for the delayed post this time around. I realize I’m about 2 weeks late.

I received a total of RM1,454.52 in dividends for October.

That’s an 81.8% increase compared to the same month last year where I received RM800 in dividends. The difference? AirAsia!

Even with Maybank’s dividends coming in November this year instead of October, AirAsia more than made up for it with RM1,200 in dividends alone.

Total 2017 Dividends – RM522.72

Dividend Yield – 4.59%

Weight – 3.69% of the Freedom Fund

End.

Total dividends up to the month of October is RM13,162.36.

Would I say we’re on track to reach 2017’s goal of RM15,000 in dividends? It’ll be close I think. But YES! Thanks to October’s outstanding performance.

The dividend yield of my portfolio is currently at 4.19%. Really glad to have surpassed that 4% yield mark, and we’re only in October.

Bask in the glory of that 4% yield!! This 4.19% is only the passive returns alone from my portfolio.

Since I’ve reduced my gross investment in the fund to only about RM25,000 this year, we should see significant growth in dividend yield moving forward.

As always, thank you for reading!
