We did good in March. Raking in RM1,265.27 in dividend income from a total of 5 companies. Compared to RM2,166.98 March last year.
Don’t let the figures fool you though, there was a one-off gain from the takeover of Goldis Berhad last year, netting me RM1,441.68.
New faces include Homeritz (which traditionally declared dividends in February) and my preference shares from Goldis (which you can read about hERE)
