The Freedom Fund yielded a total of RM2,267.94 in dividend income compared to RM599.64 the same time last year.
That 278% increase in dividends is because the dividend payment from companies this year has gone haywire. Cumulatively, I’m still down about RM1K this year.
Malayan Banking Berhad
October 2019 Dividends – RM839.25
October 2018 Dividends – RM813
Total 2019 Dividends – RM1,891.41
Dividend Yield – 4.49%
The full-year yield at 4.49% is lower compared to last year’s 6.99% as I added more units in September this year.
Genting Malaysia Berhad
October 2019 Dividends – RM288
October 2018 Dividends – 0
Total 2019 Dividends – RM288
Dividend Yield – 1.96%
Nothing to compare to last year. Bought GENM a few months back and I’ve already got a 2% yield on it.
Many of you have messaged me with concerns on GENM regarding the management. Yes, I do share the same concerns but the company as a whole will be able to pull through. Provided no more fuck-ups by the management.
Tenaga Nasional Berhad
October 2019 Dividends – RM600
October 2018 Dividends – RM302.70
Total 2019 Dividends – RM830
Dividend Yield – 3.19%
Comparing is useless in this instance as I purchased TNB shares this year as well. Yield has dropped a little as well compared to last year.
Nestle Malaysia Berhad
October 2019 Dividends – RM140
October 2018 Dividends – RM140
Total 2019 Dividends – RM420
Dividend Yield – 3.14%
A slight increase in yield compared to last year. One more dividend to go in December.
October 2019 Dividends – RM257 + RM143.65
October 2018 Dividends – RM296.94
Total 2019 Dividends – RM709.81
Dividend Yield – 6.16%
The reason I split the October dividends is because Sunway distributed its profits in cash as well as in shares. Yield increased to 6.16% compared to 4.84% last year.
Sunway has been growing steadily and silently over the years for me and now that it hit the 6% yield mark, I think people will start paying more attention to the group.
We are at a total dividend income of RM14,541.70 . Giving the Freedom Fund a yield of 3.70%.
Freedom Fund as at October 2019
