October was a relatively volatile month. And I’ve noticed most of you who started investing recently weren’t able to handle the dip in the market. Emotionally.
Reminder: You’re investing for the LONG term. Don’t let temporary dips or so-called financial crises shake you.
Remember to always do your research and have target prices for your stocks. And based off that TP, decide to buy or sell. I know most of you are just looking for re-assurances. And I’m more than happy to remind and reassure everyone again and again.
So, moving on. The tenth month brought in only RM599.64 in dividend income compared to RM1,454.52 last year. A 58.77% dip. The difference? AirAsia declared October last year but not this year. We did have TNB’s contribution this year though.

I’ve held Sunway’s shares for years now which is why I get good yields like these from them. Total yield is up from 4.59% last year. I always love it when yields increase y-o-y.

Dividends from both companies are above the 3% mark and have been increasing every year. Keeping both companies for many years to come.

We’ve almost crossed the 4.28% dividend yield mark for last year and we’ve got 2 more months to go. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, it’s a solid year for the Freedom Fund.
Onwards and upwards! And remember, don’t panic during recessions. Save and always stay invested.
