Dividend Income – April 2019

Dividend Income

I’m not sure what it is but 2019 has been a peculiar year. Dividends that were supposed to come in their respective months didn’t. Leaving my y-o-y dividend income in a deficit for January, February and March so far.

The fourth month of the year is putting things back in its place though – I raked in a total dividend income of RM2,415.12 this time around. A 400% increase when compared y-o-y.

Total dividend income up till April stands at RM5,810.56 right now. 1.55% higher than it was April last year.

Tenaga Nasional Berhad

April 2019 Dividends – RM230
April 2018 Dividends – nil (I bought TNB at a later date last year)
Total 2019 Dividends – RM230
Total 2018 Dividends – RM782.40
Dividend Yield (so far) – 1.63%

TNB is taking a beating in the stock market lately. I’m prepared to purchase additional shares any time soon now. Follow my Instagram and Facebook for live and immediate updates.

AirAsia Group Berhad

April 2019 Dividends – RM1,596
April 2018 Dividends – RM1,596
Total 2019 Dividends – RM1,596
Total 2018 Dividends – RM1,596
Dividend Yield (so far) – 3.85%

I missed the chance to grab some shares of the aviation company at RM2.40 levels. Yields have been great so far at 3.85% even at my relatively high purchase price per share.

CB Industrial Product Holding Bhd

April 2019 Dividends – RM280
April 2018 Dividends – RM420
Total 2019 Dividends – RM280
Total 2018 Dividends – RM700
Dividend Yield (so far) – 1.26%

Overall bad performance from CBIP. The stock has dipped to very, very low values in the past few months.

Sunway Berhad

April 2019 Dividends – RM309.12
April 2018 Dividends – RM254.52
Total 2019 Dividends – RM309.12
Total 2018 Dividends – RM551.46
Dividend Yield (so far) – 2.71%

I’ll be monitoring Sunway for purchase opportunities. Dividends have increased y-o-y and I like that that issued the dividends this time around via additional shares.

This adds tremendous value to shareholders and shows the management’s confidence in the company itself.


A tremendous April as my dividend income has finally caught up to the previous year’s levels. We are at a total dividend income of RM5,810.56. Giving the Freedom Fund a yield of 1.66% now.

Freedom Fund as at April 2019
Dividend Income (April) – RM2,415.12
Dividend Income (2019) – RM5,810.56
Dividend Yield – 1.66%

I’ve started a fun side project compiling AGM door gifts hERE.

Been receiving many pictures from everyone and adding to the list. The next time you’re at an AGM, do take a pic of the gifts and meal if possible and send it to divvymagic@gmail.com.

Thank you in advance!

Let’s see if we can get a handle on which company gives the best gifts soon.

  1. Hi Leigh, very insightful blog you have here.

    I have a question, usually when company pays out dividends, how do we receive the dividends?


    1. Hey Han,

      You receive the dividends straight into your bank account. Which you provide to your broker when you open your brokerage account.
      I hope this clarifies. =D

      Thank you for reading and taking the time to write in.
