Dividend Income – October 2018

October was a relatively volatile month. And I’ve noticed most of you who started investing recently weren’t able to handle the dip in the market. Emotionally.

Reminder: You’re investing for the LONG term. Don’t let temporary dips or so-called financial crises shake you.

Remember to always do your research and have target prices for your stocks. And based off that TP, decide to buy or sell. I know most of you are just looking for re-assurances. And I’m more than happy to remind and reassure everyone again and again.

So, moving on. The tenth month brought in only RM599.64 in dividend income compared to RM1,454.52 last year. A 58.77% dip. The difference? AirAsia declared October last year but not this year. We did have TNB’s contribution this year though.

 

Sunway Berhad

This Month’s Dividends – RM296.94

Total 2018 Dividends – RM551.46

Dividend Yield – 4.84%

I’ve held Sunway’s shares for years now which is why I get good yields like these from them. Total yield is up from 4.59% last year. I always love it when yields increase y-o-y.

Tenaga Nasional Berhad

This Month’s Dividends – RM302.70

Total 2018 Dividends – RM516.80

Dividend Yield – 3.66%

TNB has been a new addition to the portfolio. Up from 3.12% last year. Increasing yields? Check.

On a side note, for those of you who’ve followed me on Instagram, you’d have noticed that I’ve been more active there.

From here on out, I’ll be posting individual updates of dividend income received which will eventually lead up to my monthly dividend updates.

So if you haven’t already, look me up on insta and click on that sexy follow button. There’ll also be more personal stuff on there.

And I apologize if I don’t say this enough, but thank you for all the love and support you’ve shown. You guys are awesome.

End.

Dividends from both companies are above the 3% mark and have been increasing every year. Keeping both companies for many years to come.

To summarize,

Freedom Fund as at October 2018
Dividend Income (October): RM599.64
Dividend Income (2018): RM15,153.98
Dividend Yield: 4.13%

We’ve almost crossed the 4.28% dividend yield mark for last year and we’ve got 2 more months to go. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, it’s a solid year for the Freedom Fund.

Onwards and upwards! And remember, don’t panic during recessions. Save and always stay invested.

A 74.25% increase y-o-y. The increase comes mainly from the addition of Tenaga Nasional Berhad in July last year.

And yes, congratulations to Pakatan Harapan on the GE14 win.

TNB has been performing really well since I’ve added it to the Freedom Fund last year. The risks moving forward will be the review of government contracts TNB has signed while under BN’s rule.

Still waiting on AirAsia’s AGM notice. Anyone know anything about it? Will be interesting to see Tony after his recent debacle.

As always, thank you for reading!
