TNB has been performing really well since I’ve added it to the Freedom Fund last year. The risks moving forward will be the review of government contracts TNB has signed while under BN’s rule.

I apologize for the late dividend income update this time around. May’s post will be up soon.

April and May has traditionally been slow months for the Freedom Fund.

To summarize,

Dividend Yield: 1.60%

 

Still waiting on AirAsia’s AGM notice. Anyone know anything about it? Will be interesting to see Tony after his recent debacle.

As always, thank you for reading!

  1. HI Leigh,

    I see from your portfolio that you never invested in Number Forecasting Company despite its high dividend yield. May I ask any particular reasons you avoided them?

  2. Hi, I am very impressed that u able to achieve a very high passive dividend income in just few years. I just curious to know if a company offer dividend yield of 2 to 3% is it better to put in bank if bank able to offer higher dividend? Thanks

    1. Hi Regine,

      No way. Because your FD will always remain 3%-3.5%.
      dividends maybe 2% this year, next year it might increase to 2.5% and the next 3.8%
      make sure u invest in good companies

  4. Hi Divy,

    I am new to this share buying thingy, I am curious to know on the statements you receive from Bursa for your dividends, Do they send you this statements monthly or when there has been a dividend payout? Its a normal mail or post laju? Do I have to subscribe this in the bursa site?Thanks for you reply.

    1. Hi Cynthia,

      Dividends will be sent directly by the company you receive them from. Like the pics in my post. No need to subscribe, just make sure the address is correct when you open a brokerage account.
      Hope this helped!
