Investment in counters listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange (shares, REITS, and fixed income) had declined. These securities still offer dividends or coupons each year. It would be informative to know what is the ACTUAL dividend yield based on cost of purchase.
I tracked actual dividend received each year by security counter. I have the actual cost of purchasing a security. With these two numbers, I can calculate the actual dividend yield based on my investments. Below are some of investments held since 2015.
|Counter||2015 Yield %||2016 Yield %|
Note: Dividend was tracked to 18 August 2016 in 2016 column.
STI ETF returned 2.86% for this year. Keppel Corp still got me 3.04% at my cost of purchase. Not too bad.
At this kind of return, I am inclined to hold on to these securities.
