My Portfolio and its Dividends from 2019
I update my portfolio – the Freedom Fund on a quarterly basis.
My Investing Method
As always, my goal has been to achieve a passive income of approximately RM36K per annum through dividends.
With that goal in mind, I have been holding and adding stocks that continue to increase their dividends every year. Most of the stocks in my portfolio reflect that – REITs, Maybank, Nestle etc all are there to help achieve that passive income.
That being said, I am always on the lookout for growth stocks. And I’m fine with a growing company not being able to pay dividends during the growth stage.
As of 2020, my plan is to continue adding to my Malaysian dividend stocks when the price is right. At the same time, I will be looking towards the US for bigger, better companies to invest in.
I am glad to have finally found a way to purchase US stocks with minimal fees and I’ve since switched brokers. A guide to investing in the US and other foreign stocks can be found hERE.
I’ve also curated a list of the top 20 most valuable companies in Malaysia by market cap.
Reports on Top Dividend Stocks
Moving on, a full collection of reports on the best dividend stocks in Malaysia can be found here.
Personally, I use Rakuten Trade and Hong Leong to invest locally. I will be using their system as an example throughout my posts.
I cover most companies I invest in. The full list of the most recent analysis of the company’s finances can be found below, arranged in alphabetical order.
As always, due diligence on your own part is required when deciding to invest in a company (or in any asset for that matter).
For updated information on the dividends paid by the companies (at least for the ones I invest in), head over to the Freedom Fund for a clearer picture.
If you’ve got a specific Malaysian company in mind that pays good dividends which I’ve yet to cover, drop me a message or leave a comment here.
The above list will be updated over time.
I have plans to talk more about stocks and their valuations on YouTube. Do subscribe there and look forward to that.
