Cory Diary : Dividends Dec'17

With the last of my stock ex-dividend today for the year, is time to compute dividend returns alone.

Total dividends $41,802 for Year 2017.

Highest Dividend from Reit is AA Reit.
Highest Dividend from Non-Reit is Singtel.

Reit and Non-Reit are coincidentally equal in total percentage in dividend returns. I like this ratio in diversification

This year as expected I have finally achieved $40K dividend returns and exceeding by $1.8k. With good economic projection for year 2018, and with bonus and profit returns in this year market, I will target $45K - $50K for next year range.











In total, all my dividends together hits $225 K. Quite amazing sum of money. Is almost a quarter million. The building up pace is quite steep in cumulative line view compared to the bar chart.


However, I like to add note of caution. Is not tips, place and forget. Throughout dividend investing journey, my portfolio has seen significant counter changes over the years. An example will be if have to hold on to Sabana Reit, the chart would have been dented. There is also timing deployed when the market is depressed. Ensuring the constant growth while protecting my capital returns are always in my mind since no point in getting high dividend stocks and erode on the capital front.

Again this is for sharing from a commoner retail investor with returns compounded. And I am still learning The Way on the back of the region development.

    1. Reminds me of delay gratification. To delay spending a little bit, smaller bit ... and tap them to the investment growth to fund future spending.

    1. I think is not hard to guesstimate. Using yield 4 to 8%. You will be able to derive.

  5. No offense, I think it is meaningless to track dividends if you keep trading yoour shares. For examples, to have 1 million of dividends next year, you just need to put all your money in a stocks before xd, and sell it after xd and repeat with other stocks.

    1. My blog is probably new to you.

      If you have read in my article I mentioned "... no point in getting high dividend stocks and erode on the capital front." So as mentioned, no point. It will be SILLY. There is another measure which is XIRR after all expenses with stock value updated annualized.

      Here's the link on my gains after expenses.

  6. Hi Cory

    The year on year increase on the annual dividend just shows how successful you are with this strategy.

    Keep on compounding and it'll be a matter of time, not if, that you will hit that magical 6 digit dividend in time to come.

  8. In another forum,

    Question asked by terrylim2 :

    Reply to @terrylim2 : Hi Terry, i would say many different angles I did. Re-allocation of counters, Re-balancing, mitigating risk, profits re-invest, dividend re-invest, learning to cut loss and avoiding mines. As for fresh fund injection, I would think so as well but I need to work out the maths to confirm exact. Maybe 10-15% of the portfolio ?
