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!
