The 8th month of 2018 brought me only RM574.55 in dividends compared to RM1,880.64 the same time last year. As mentioned in the previous post, this is due to most companies paying in July instead of June and August.
This Month’s Dividends – RM574.55
Total 2018 Dividends – RM2,250.06
Dividend Yield – 5.57%
These should be all the dividend income from IGB REIT this year.
Total Dividend (2018) – RM2,250.06
Total Dividend (2017) – RM1,785.70
Dividend Yield (2018) – 5.57%
Dividend Yield (2017) – 5.96%
I purchased additional shares in March 2018, giving me a higher total dividend but a lower yield.
I trust in the assets the management has invested in and foresee growth for IGB REIT in the distant future. As with properties, the growth would be a slow one.
As a comparison to last year’s performance:
August (2018): RM574.55
August (2017): RM1,880.64
A 69.45% dip in dividend income. We should see dividend income normalize come September.
Freedom Fund as at August 2018
Dividend Income (August): RM574.55
Dividend Income (2018): RM12,754.71
Dividend Yield: 3.47%
