Dividends for 2Q11

My latest average monthly dividend achievement for this quarter:

S$(104 + 148.40 + 158 + 97.90 + 114.80) / quarter
=  S$623.10 / 3 months
=  S$207.70/mth

I will say AimAmpReit is the biggest contributor in the increase for my Average Monthly Dividend Achievement (AMDA) and hope it will continue to do so, even though its share price is not going anywhere.  =P

Starhill Global Reit - 2QFY11 result released

The DPU for this quarter is S$0.0104 and pretty constant for a income stream.
For this quarter, the total dividend from this reit I shall receive will be:

S$0.0104 x 10000 shares = S$104

Payable date will be on 29 August 2011.

AimsAmpsReit Q1FY12 result release

Great DPU by this reit!!

In this quarter, the distribution is given out with S$0.0053. With 28000 shares (28 lots) on hand, the total dividend I shall receive from this reit will be:

28000 units x S$0.0053 = S$148.40

The payable date will be on 14 September 2011.

First Reit Q2FY11 result

Like its previous quarter, the declared distribution for this quarter for First Reit is S$0.0158 per unit.  Since I hold a total of 10000 shares (10 Lots), this quarter's dividend I shall receive is as followed:

S$0.0158 x 10000 shares = S$158

Date payable is on 29 Aug 2011.

PST Q2FY11 result release

Similar to its previous quarter, its latest quarter DPU has maintained and stands at US$0.00809. With my rough estimation on USD/SGD exchange rate as at 1.21, the dividend to be received will be:

US$0.00809 x 1.21 x 10000 shares = S$97.90

Date payable is on 29 August 2011.

FSL Q2FY11 result release

I have been very busy and tired after work in recent months,  hence, there was not much update in my blog. I do, however, read the blogs of other Singapore dividend-income investors, and I am glad to see they are doing very well. Three cheers for them.

Alright, coming back to FSL.

In the latest announcement on 20 July 11, after the stub distribution, the Trust announced that they are distributing US$0.0008, Together with the stub distribution, the total distribution for Q2FY11 will maintain at US$0.0095.

I also read that they are now in discussion with leading banks on re-financing and to extend their entire near-term loans (which will expire in Apr 2012) to year 2016 and beyond.  I wish them and myself good luck for this discussion and that the banks agree on the extended loan tenure requests.

Anyway, the dividends that I will be receiving based on the above are:

US$0.0008 x 1.21 x 10000 shares = S$9.60

Total dividends received from FSL for Q2FY11 = S$(105.20 + 9.60) = S$114.80

Date payable will be on 26 August 2011.

FSL Q2FY11 - Stub Distribution due to 57,000,000 new units placement

Never-ending new units placement!!

Due to the placement of new units, FSL is giving out Stub Distribution to exisiting unit holders (yes, that's me included too) of US$0.00087 for the period from 1st April 2011 to 23rd June 2011, instead of 30th June 2011.

As such, the FSL dividend I shall receive for 2Q11 will be:

US$0.0087 x 1.21 x 10000 shares = S$105.20

Date payable will be on 21 July 2011.

Dividends for 1Q11

With all the dividend announcements have been made, I did a calculation for my latest average monthly dividend achievement for this quarter:

S$(99.50 + 116.85 + 107 + 158 + 71.40) / quarter
=  S$552.75 / 3 months
=  S$184/mth

Although it is about S$2 less than the previous Average Monthly Dividend Achievement (AMDA), I consider my stock portfolio is pretty stable in delivering constant monthly income for me. I think in order to grow and bring my AMDA to next higher level, I will need to re-deploy my two-quarter dividends with new purchases (I have not been buying any stock in the last two quarters). I will update my blog when such opportunity comes.  :=)

PST Q1FY11 result release

Like FSL, its latest quarter DPU has maintained and stands at US$0.00809. With my rough estimation on USD/SGD exchange rate as at 1.23, the dividend to be received will be:

US$0.00809 x 1.23 x 10000 shares = S$99.50

Date payable is on 30 May 2011.

FSL Q1FY11 result release

Again, FSL maintains its DPU as at US$0.0095.  However, from the announcement I read, the quarter posted a net loss of US$2 mil in Q1FY11 compared to US$0.7 mil net gain in Q1FY10. Unless things turnaround, I suppose they will not be able to maintain the same DPU level in the next few distributions. Hopefully I am wrong and wishing them the best. Anyway, the dividend I shall receive will be (with rough estimation of USD/SGD exchange conversion rate at 1.23):

US$0.0095 x 1.23 x 10000 shares = S$116.85

Date payable is on 27 May 2011.

Starhill Global Reit - result released

The DPU for the quarter has increased slightly from S$0.0104 to S$0.0107. This is the third time I receive my dividend from this reit and its DPU has been steadily increasing from the day I bought it.

For this quarter, the total dividend from this reit I shall receive will be:

S$0.0107 x 10000 shares = S$107

Payable date shall be on 31 May 2011.

First Reit Q1FY11 result

The declared distribution for First Reit is S$0.0158 per unit.  Since I hold a total of 10000 shares (10 Lots), this quarter's dividend I shall receive is as followed:

S$0.0158 x 10000 shares = S$158

Date payable is on 30 May 2011.

AimsAmpsReit Q4FY11 result release

AimsAmpsReit had had an advanced distribution for Q4FY11 as at 31st Mar 2011. The reason for doing this is because it is for the fairness for the currect unit holders who will be affected by a private placement in the last quarter.

Moving forward, I intend to ignore this advanced distribution in my calculation for my average monthly dividend income for 1Q11 dividend achievement. The main reason for this decision is because subsequent distribution by this reit will be based on the new total number of units issued after the private placement.

In this new quarter, the distribution is S$0.00255. With 28000 shares (28 lots) on hand, the total dividend I shall receive from this reit will be:

28000 units x S$0.00255 = S$71.40

The payable date will be on 8 June 2011.

Dividends for 4Q10 - Part 2 (Final)

This is a review for the finalised dividends received with more accurate figures for FSL & PST. For:

FSL, I received a total dividend of S$121.33, and
PST, I received a total dividend of S$103.29

Hence, the monthly dividend achievement for the last quarter in Year 2010:

S$(87 + 121.33  + 103.29 + 142.80 + 104) / quarter
=  S$558.42 / 3 months
=  S$186.14/mth

A review soon

I have been very busy with my studies in these few months, but I will do a review on my portfolio again soon. :=)

AimsAmpReit - Advanced Distribution for Q4FY11

Due to the private placement, AimsAmpReit has decided to give out Advanced Distribution to the current unit holders before new units issuance on 31st March 2011. According to their announcement in SGX, the amout of distribution this time round is $0.00285. With that, the dividend income I will be receiving for the quarter will be:

28000 units x S$0.00285 = S$79.80

Payable date shall be on 28 Mar 2011.
I am considering whether to increase my stake in this reit after the dilution.

Dividends for 4Q10 - Part 1

Now that all my stock holdings have had their dividend announcement made in the past few days, I can start to do a rough computation of my latest avereage monthly dividend achievement for the last quarter in Year 2010 :

S$(87 + 121.60  + 103.50 + 142.80 + 104) / quarter
=  S$558.90 / 3 months
=  S$186.30/mth

Although it slightly falls short of my target of S$200/mth, but I am still quite satisfied with this result. I will finalise the figure once the exchange rates for FSL & PST are set.  All in all, it is a rather fruitful year for me and I really look forward to double this amount in Year 2011.  :=)

Starhill Global Reit - result released

Tired out by work today and came home late.  Finally settled down after I reached home, I am in for another surprise by Starhill Global!! It has also increased its distribution, albeit a slight one, from its last quarter distribution.  The distribution this time round is S$0.0104   :=)

Since I am currently holding 10000 shares (10 Lots), my expected dividend from it will be :

S$0.0104 x 10000 shares = S$104

The payable date will be on 28 Feb 2011.

Jan 26, 2011

AimsAmpsReit Q3FY11 result release

I have a pleasant surprise when I see there is a jump in distribution from its last quarter!! It announced today it is giving out per unit distribution of S$0.0051, roughly a 28% up from last quarter's distribution. I am very glad that I have subscribed to their rights excercise previously.  :=)

Hence, the dividend I shall be receiving from this reit will be :

S$0.0051 x 28000 shares = S$142.80

The payable date will be on 15 Mar 2011.

PST Q4FY10 result release - Part 1

PST has gone Ex-dividend today.  Its unit distribution remains relatively stable and is giving out US$0.00809 for the last quarter of  the Year 2010 (Q4FY10). As we all know, PST does not have the practice of pre-annoucing the exchange rate, so we will only know the actual rate after receiving our distribution on the pay day itself. As such and again, I am giving an estimation based on USD/SGD exchange rate at 1.28 region. I estimate my earned dividend from PST for this quarter will be as followed :

US$0.00809 x 1.28 x 10000 shares = S$103.50

Date payable is on 28 Feb 2011. Another constant stream of income.   :=)
An update will be done once I receive the distribution.

Jan 24, 2011

FSL Q4FY10 result release - Part 1

There is no change in the distribution amount from last quarter, and it stands at US$0.0095. Because the exchange rate is not confirmed, I will not be able to accurately compute the actual figure. However, my rough estimation for the exchange rate is to be around 1.28 region. Hence, my estimation for this quarter's dividend is as followed :

US$0.0095 x 1.28 x 10000 shares = S$121.60

Date payable is on 25 Feb 2011.
I feel great to be receiving this constant stream of income so far !!  :=)

First Reit Q4FY10 result

The declared distribution for First Reit is S$0.0087 per unit.  Since I hold a total of 10000 shares (10 Lots), this quarter's dividend I shall receive is as followed :

S$0.0087 x 10000 shares = S$87

Date payable is on 28 Feb 2011.
It is not spectacular, but I am happy to receive it !!  :=)

New Year, New Start

uhmm ... I have not been updating my blog recently, because there aren't much things to update. Perphaps that is the boring element in investing.

A review of this year's investment plan, I have mentioned that I will begin to buy some blue chip stocks slowly, and I mean really slowly, little by little. The reason being, I am parting some of my funds to invest in myself for continuing education. I believe that is very important too, because with better education, I should be able to command a higher paycheck, and be able to invest more in Singapore Stock Market, and the cycle repeats itself.

Nonetheless, I will still keep a lookout for good buys and update my purchase in my blog regularly.  :=)
