Dividend Income Updates - Q4 FY2018

I am writing this dividend update quarterly in an attempt to compile my quarterly dividend performance for the year. 

With a rising cost of living under the belt, in particular with the two kids in tow and hence require some bits of maintenance spend to keep hold, it can be particularly stressful to keep up with the expenses or cash outflow. 

Many times, we are dependent on our sole income which comes from our source of salary which we received monthly. While these may be the norms in the beginning, it is not healthy to be overly dependent on it over long periods of time as it may anytime snap behind your back. 

This is the reason why all of us need to think ways to grow our side income while we can so that we may unravel opportunities that can supplement our monthly income from salary. 

For many, these activities can range from being an Amazon affiliate seller to vlogging for a youtube channel to being a freelance writer. 

Some others in the investment space include investing in alternative assets, bonds or stocks that can give them dividend income on a regular basis. 

For myself, dividend investing has worked very well in the past few years due to the familiarity of the company and regularity of the payout, which I like it very much. 

It has helped me to curb my rising expenses when the need arises and further propel my portfolio growth through regular capital injection via dividends reinvested.

Still, with many get caught in the high yield trap as evident from the APTT incident this morning, it pays to be cautious of the payout that you are receiving.

Without further ado, here’s the Q4 FY18 dividend income details: 

CountersAmount (S$)Ex-DatePayable Date
Fraser Logistics Trust4,168.54 12-Nov19-Dec
Netlink Trust1,251.72 12-NovCFD
Far East Hospitality Trust1,050.00 5-Nov13-Dec
Starhill Reit1,150.00 5-Nov29-Nov
Total 7,620.26

After tabulating the dividends for all the companies, the 4th quarter dividend income came up to $7,620.26.

4th Quarter is arguably the weakest quarter of all, so we should see some better improvement in the next quarter.

With that, the annual dividend income has now summed up to $42,972 for the year, which so far is a record high for the portfolio. 

Together with the past dividends received, the portfolio has now accumulated $124,063 worth of dividends received and this number will keep on growing over the next few quarters and one day will become an integral part of my sustained income to live off. 

Thanks for reading.
