FY2017 Full Year Dividend

This will be the final post for 2017 dividends well as my 2nd post on quarterly dividend updates.

Throughout the 4th Quarter of 2017, I've received dividends from:
- Starhill Global REIT
- Guocoland

Frasers Commercial Trust
For Q4FY2017, FCOT has paid a distribution of $0.0241/share. Similar to last quarter, I've subscribed to their script dividends and I'm allocated 4 shares of FCOT and having the balance of $1.85 back to my bank account. The dividend of $0.0241 is equivalent to 1.86% of my entry price at 1.295.

HPS has departed from ATP, and the space they vacated constitutes to 17.1% of the total NLA in ATP. It has not be announced whether HPE will be vacating from ATP, but I'm ready for that news.

Starhill Global REIT
SGR has declared a $0.012/share dividend for FY2017 Q4. As a result of the distribution, I've received $6 and this translates to 1.61% of my entry price @ 0.745. SGR continues to stay in my watchlist and I'm looking to accumulate more shares of Starhill.

AA REIT has declared a $0.0255/unit distribution and will be paying it later this month of the 21st. The distribution of $0.0255 will mean that I'm receiving $10.20, which is 1.86% of my entry price earlier this year back at 1.37.

With reference to the receipt of new units created from the private placement, this exercise has created 42,145,500 new units in AA REIT. Adding onto their existing outstanding issued share at 639,980,000 units. This will bump the total units up by 6.52 % to 682,125,200 units. Revised NAV from latest financial report (30/09/17) following the 6.52% increase should be 1.2713. Upcoming yield should the performance stay flat will be hovering around 7.29% based on the price of 1.35.

The declared dividend for FY2017 by Guocoland is $0.07/share, which is 2 cents higher than their usual $0.05 yearly dividend and I've received $14. There is a drop in their share price recently, falling from the 2.3-2.4 range to closing 2.1 last Friday. It seems like there is some price weakness in their share again and perhaps it's time I go shopping. At 2.1, they're trading at 34% discount to book value.

NAV as of end FY2017 stands at $3.18.

In the next quarter, I'll be likely to receive dividends from:
Singtel, AA REIT, SGR, FCOT. 

Total dividends received in Q4 = $37.53
Total dividends received in 2017 = $111.23
Average dividends/months = $9.27
My 1st $100 from Mr Market :)
$9.27/per month. I'll need to topup 73 cents in order to afford 2 Fillet-O-Fish meal. Terrible, isn't it?
I will be working towards the goal of buying myself more meals in the coming future. And hopefully, one day, the dividends received will be able to cover all my expenses :)

The total dividends of $111.23 is equivalent to 1.9% of total stock holdings. This is because most of my stocks are purchased in the last quarter of this year and I've missed out on their dividends. Not to forget the heavy concentration I've placed on growth stocks rather than income generating stocks.

I look forward to receive dividends from companies like CDG, Wilmar, Far East Orchard in the coming year. The annualized dividend yield of my portfolio is currently at 4.92%.

Looking back, the income-generating stocks (REIT) is only 19.6% of my entire portfolio based on the latest portfolio update! I guess it's time I shall do some portfolio re-balancing and possibly add some REITS to increase my yield.


  1. Hahaha! You really use fillet meal to quantify the return!

    1. Hi KPO,

      Perhaps I shall change the metrics a little. Too much fillet isn't good for health! Haha!

  2. Hi Sleepydevil,

    You and your sister arh! One measure returns in Fillet-O-Fish meals; the other measure returns in Batam tickets. :P

    (P.S. I posted this same response to her blog post, LOL!)

    1. Hi UN,

      Hahahaha! I've chanced upon her post too! Batam ticket is a really interesting way of measuring returns! Too much fillet is not healthy :(

      Perhaps I should change it to something else.. How about yours? What will you be using :p

    2. Hi sleepydevil,

      Just realised you're only 19! That's a good age to start your financial journey. I didn't start so young also. And your sister is also blogging? That's so cool both siblings are on the same journey. haha

    3. Hi SGYI,

      Thanks for dropping by! Ahhh.. if I'm not mistaken you started just slightly later and your progress is very respectable!

      Ahh my "sister" accordingly to UN .. Haha!

    4. Hi sleepydevil,

      You'll definitely do well too!

      Oh i thought your real sister. Haha

    5. Hi SGYI,

      Thanks for the kind words haha!
      With fingers crossed (and toes too!), let's look forward to the coming year :)
