In the previous post, I did not factor in dividends received in the study. Each stock in my portfolio provided dividend and SPDR STI ETF gave dividend as well.
I calculate the dividend yield of my portfolio by dividing actual dividends received in the year by the cost price of all stocks. The average dividend yield for each year is provided in the table.
I calculate the actual dividend yield of SPDR STI ETF using the same approach.
|Dividends received on stocks and STI ETF|
|Year||Div Yield on portfolio (%)||Div Yield on SPDR STI ETF (%)|
The portfolio yielded an average dividend yield of 3.40% per year, whereas dividend yield for SPDR STI ETF was 2.50% per year on average.
The portfolio of stocks was better than SPDR STI ETF. That was my experience with dividend yields.
