I decide to value add to users of my Dividend Stock Tracker.
For new readers, the Dividend Stock Tracker tracks some of Singapore best yielding dividend stocks, enabling you to see the stocks’ dividend yield change with daily change in stock prices , latest stock valuation based on PE, EV/EBITDA and how leveraged the dividend stocks are. (Read more here)
Dividend Distribution Frequency
I think one of the problems readers faced is that when viewed the list on my tracker, they will still need to go to SGX.com to find out the frequency of distribution.
The frequency can be pretty consistent, but it needs manual updates on my end. But I will work out a schedule to keep it up to date weekly.
If you click on each stock, at the bottom remarks, you will see the historical dividend date and amount.
You will be able to estimate the frequency of the ex dividend dates and the proportion of distribution.
Alert: The dates and amount is based on historical declaration. Dividends are discretionary and a company can change their dividend policy readily. Use it as a guide not that you will definitely get it.
Removal of SBS Transit
I will be doing some spring cleaning and the first task is to remove SBS Transit from the tracker.
SBS used to be a smashing dividend stock, but like SMRT, it will not die, but that does not mean it can pay out a steady dividend.
Inclusion of Venture Corporation
I decide to add a large tech company to the mix. Venture is a contract manufacturer who has been paying a consistent $0.50 dividends for the past years.
The payout ratio is like near 100% of earnings.
