The last month produced RM1,111.65 in dividends for me. A 14.78% dip compared to last year’s RM1,304.48. TENAGA paid out its dividends in October this year.
Also, I received AirAsia’s special dividend of RM5,320 just in time for the New Year.
I’ll refrain from adding that into my dividend yield for 2018 as that may skew and mislead you.
This Month’s Dividends – RM310.35
Total 2018 Dividends – RM1,179.94
Total 2017 Dividends – RM1,204.55
Dividend Yield – 5.95%
A small drop in dividends from Sunway REIT this year. Still a solid 6% yield.
This Month’s Dividends – RM437.30
Total 2018 Dividends – RM1,359.45
Total 2017 Dividends – RM1,619.51
Dividend Yield – 3.96%
Bad, bad performance from Axis. The price has slightly rebounded but I’ll continue to monitor their dividend payments for the first half of 2019.
Nestle Malaysia Berhad
This Month’s Dividends – RM140
Total 2018 Dividends – RM550
Total 2017 Dividends – RM540
Dividend Yield – 4.11%
A slight increase in dividends from Nestle. We should see stronger yields next year as the share price has shot up to RM147 per unit right now.
Scicom (MSC) Berhad
This Month’s Dividends – RM224
Total 2018 Dividends – RM1,008
Total 2017 Dividends – RM756
Dividend Yield – 4.52%
A surprise coming from Scicom this year. Their share price has tanked.
I believe that it is trading at a huge bargain right now.
2018- RM18,072.25 (4.92%)
2017 – RM15,705.71 (4.69%)
Gross Investment – RM367,168.13
Market Value – RM443,435.79
A good year in terms of dividends. But with the current situation of the market, the Freedom Fund is actually making a slight paper loss this year.
PS. I decided against adding AirAsia’s special dividend into the fray. But just so you know, the yield would have come up to 6.37% if I had.
Here’s to reaching that 5% mark in 2019.
Happy New Year everyone! Don’t drink and drive.
