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.

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.

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

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance!
Let’s see if we can get a handle on which company gives the best gifts soon.
