I keep track of dividends received for each stock and real estate investment trust (Reit) in my Singapore equity portfolio. I received dividends for SPDR STI ETF too.
When I compute the actual dividend yield based on my cost of investment, my best dividend yields were:
All these investments provide dividends. The yields were adequate for me to hold on to these investments.
I have winners and losers in my portfolio. On an overall basis, the total portfolio dividend yield was 2.5%. I can live with this rate of return on my investments.
SPDR STI ETF had done well for me. The dividend yield was 3.1%. Instead of picking stocks, it is better to buy STI ETF. The yield was better. One can select stocks that do not perform well.
