Dividend Income – September 2016

Dividend Income

First and foremost, I’m delighted to report that I’ve officially achieved my 2016 goal of RM8,500 in dividend income. I’ve raked in a total of RM9,044.32 this year from dividend income alone. In fact, it is entirely possible that I may be able to shatter the RM10,000 mark this year. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

The total dividend income received for the month of September crossed the one thousand ringgit mark at RM1,172.15. The five companies that generously contributed to this amount are: Axis REIT, Sunway REIT, Homeriz, Sunway Construction and Nestle. Their individual amount and yields for the year so far are as below:

Axis REIT – RM263.65 (3.23% yield)

SunREIT – RM270.50 (4.48% yield)

Homeriz – RM489.00 (7.79% yield)

SunCon – RM9.00 (4.61% yield)

Nestle – RM140.00 (2.99% yield)

Unfortunately I’m unable to get to my mail the past few weeks so the relevant pics will be updated in due time. I know some of you can’t wait to see more of my Iron Man collection but please bear with me (Yes there are several more models to be revealed!).

Moving onto the total yield of my Freedom Fund – Total dividend yield for the year stands at 3.14%! Yes we’ve yet again crossed an important milestone – the 3% fixed deposit mark. I know some of you may argue that FDs under promotion offers way higher interest rates, but lets agree to stick to 3% shall we?

How is the Freedom Fund doing so far?

With it being the third quarter and all, I guess I should let everyone know that the Freedom Fund is doing good. For the year so far, unrealized capital gains of the portfolio stands at 9.75%. This preliminary figure is pretty good considering the volatile year we’ve had so far. With the end of 2016 so close, I will hope for a good 4th and final quarter to conclude the year. There will be a more comprehensive summary come December.

Thanks for reading.

P.S. A good number of you have reached out to me on financial planning since my last post. I would like to offer my apologies to some of you whom I’m unable to meet yet due to my schedule. Hope to meet up with you guys soon over the next few weeks!

Dividend Income – July & August 2016

July & August Dividend Income

First of all, my apologies again for missing the dividend income update for the month of July. Now, on to more important matters.

I received a total of RM1,938.99 in dividend income for both July and August, as detailed below:


CBIP – RM420.00 (5.74% yield)

Dividend Income - CBIP July


Scientex – RM456.00 (8.53% yield)

PBBank – RM156.00 (1.41% yield)

IGB REIT – RM906.99 (5.58% yield)

Dividend Income - Scientex August

Dividend Income - Public Bank August

*Note that at the time of purchase, PBBank shares had already paid out their first trench of dividends.

Final Dividends

This will be the final dividend paid by all the companies mentioned above for 2016. I’m pretty satisfied with the yields from all 4 companies. Hope to see them continue to grow in the coming years and see my yields increase as the share price go up.

Also, I’m currently waiting on more opportunities to add Scientex and more REITs to my Freedom Fund.

Some Short Term Gain

In August, I’ve also been busy making some quick profit from the market. As most of you know, I’m mostly a long term investor and have generally stuck to my principles. However, I’ve been known to dabble in short term investing ie. trading when I’ve done my due diligence and research. I’ve made a RM900 or 13% gain in a short span of 6 days by trading in DESTINI.

I will not encourage average investors to pursue this highly risky branch of investing without first knowing everything about it and then some. So, with this trade, I’ve added an additional RM900 to my war chest which I hope to make use of in the near future.


Total dividends received currently stands at RM7,872.17 with a yield of 2.74%.

As an early comparison between 2016 and 2015’s dividend yields, I’ve already surpassed last year’s dividend yield of 2.7%. Looking forward to a bountiful final 4 months of 2016.

Finally, I hope everyone’s investments have been doing well and continue to. Thanks for reading, Cheers!

PS: I’ve been away from home for a bit and therefore haven’t had the chance to snap the dividend voucher from IGB REIT. Will be adding them when I get back.
