My February wasn’t all fine and dandy. I received only RM1,099.48 in dividend income from two companies – IGB REIT and Axis REIT. As compared to RM1,732.06 in 2018.
That’s a 36.52% drop in dividends compared to the same month last year. The main reason being – Homeritz declared in February last year, but I received their dividends in March instead, in 2019.
Also, if you’ve been following me on Facebook and Instagram, I’ve actually sold half my holding in Axis REIT after receiving their dividends.
February 2019 Dividends – RM612
February 2018 Dividends – RM1,007.99
Total 2019 Dividends – RM612
Total 2018 Dividends – RM2,865.43
Dividend Yield – 1.51%
A huge 39% drop in dividends from IGB REIT.
February 2019 Dividends – RM487.48
February 2018 Dividends – RM186.17
Total 2019 Dividends – RM487.48
Total 2018 Dividends – RM1,359.45
Dividend Yield – 1.42%
A 162% increase in dividends for Axis REIT.
The REIT is back on track and I foresee future growth in share price. My reason for disposing of half of the stock is because the yields are still below par for my portfolio.
Freedom Fund as at February 2019
Dividend Income (February) – RM1,099.48
Dividend Income (2019) – RM2,129.48
Dividend Yield – 0.58%
Dismal dividends for the first 2 months of 2019. Still optimistic for the rest of 2019 though!
Onwards and upwards. How has everyone’s portfolio performed?
