Current Dividend Yield of Stocks in My Stock Portfolio

Most of the companies and REITs in my stock portfolio has announced their 4QFY17 financial results. As such, I am able to tabulate the total dividends they are paying or have paid out in FY17.

I am sure everyone has read about the stock market in a sea of red recently. Is this a buying opportunity?

As a dividend investor, I am keen to know what is the current dividend yield for each of the stock I am holding. This will help me in the decision whether I should be buying more or stop buying.

Company Name Total Dividends

(FY17) (cents)

Current Price

(23 Feb 2018) (S$)

Current Dividend

Yield (%)

ST Engineering 15 3.39 4.42
ParkwayLife Reit 13.35 2.78 4.80
CapitaMall Trust 11.51 1.97 5.84
OUE Hospitality Trust 5.14 0.86 5.98
The Hour Glass 2 0.68 2.94
Kingsmen Creatives 2.5 0.63 3.97
Boustead 2 0.82 2.44
Frasers Commercial Trust 9.82 1.42 6.92
Suntec Reit 10.005 1.93 5.18

Based on the above, we can see that the REITs are generating an above 5% but below 6% dividend yield with the exception of Frasers Commercial Trust. The current level of dividend yield (5% to 6%) is not fantastic but acceptable.

I am more curious about Frasers Commercial Trust. With the news of HP vacating Alexandra Technopark and China Square Central undergoing renovations, I am surprise FCOT is still able to pay out 9.82 cents in total for FY17 and a dividend yield of 6.92%. A buying opportunity? At this moment, I am not sure as I have not read in details the latest financial results and follow up on its recent news. Perhaps this is something I can do next.

My Personal Analysis of Singtel

Recently, the share price of Singtel has breached its 5 year low, falling as low as S$3.36 as of 12th February 2018. This is after they announced their Q3FY18 net profit fell 8.5% to S$890 million from S$973 million one year ago. Singtel attributed the decline due to lower profits from subsidiaries Airtel, Telkomsel and Globe and also due to lower contribution from NetLink Trust following the divestment of its majority stake in the company.

I doubt the divestment of NetLink Trust will have much impact on Singtel’s FY18 profits as NetLink Trust only contributed S$73 million pre-tax profits in 2017. Read More
