Welcome back to 2019 ladies and gents.
Markets have somewhat rebounded but sadly I didn’t make any purchases during the slump.
The first month of the year brought me a total of RM1,030 in dividend income. That’s a 23% drop in dividends compared to January in 2018.
CBIP failed to declare dividends in January as they did last year. The only company that paid me this month is good old Scientex Berhad. Their dividends increased by 12% from RM920 last year.
