Actual Dividends received for 2017

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:

Counter Dividend Yield
SPH Reit 4.3%
Singtel 4.3%
Comfort Delgro 3.6%
STI ETF 3.1%
StarHub 3.1%
M1 3.0%
Keppel Reit 2.9%
Keppel Corp 2.0%

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.
