How it came about
It started off with a frustration that i had whenever i use my excel sheet to keep track of my dividend stocks and other not-so-good dividend stocks. The frustration was that whenever i see a stock that was sold down pretty badly, i had to find the stock price and key it into my excel sheet, then i need to find the current market cap so that my excel sheet would just compute.
The dividend stock tracker aim to be useful for people that are interested in forming a portfolio of income investments for high yield investing or investment income.
What is the Dividend Stock Tracker
Dividend Stock Tracker tracks a list of dividend stocks that are listed on the SGX. They can be:
- Business Trusts
- Utilities and Infrastructure stocks
- Telecommunication stocks
- Blue Chips
The prices of these stocks will be updated daily at the end of each day. The data will be recomputed and the new ratios and yields will be displayed.
Some of the fundamental data covered are:
- Operating Cashflow
- Dividend Yield
- PE and Earnings Yield
- Operating Cashflow Yield and Free Cashflow Yield
- Price-to-book ratio
- Return Premium
- % Payout
- % Cash holding of Assets
You may have observed that not all are displayed on the main table, thats because i can’t put everything into a small table.
Clicking on the name of each stock will display more detail information.
Moderating Dividend Payout
You would have notice that some of the yields are quite different from what brokerage houses display. This is because the yields are moderated by me. One time special dividends and dividends that seems unsustainable are moderated downwards so that it doesn’t give people an impression that if you buy now your yield will be that much.
So that is why Courage Marine’s payout is much less than what they paid out last year. I used an average payout for that.
For Stocks whose balance sheet data are in USD or RMB for example, i will use an exchange conversion. Most of the balance sheet data are thus like what they display in their annual report. E.g. Hongwei’s Total assets in this case is in RMB.
Balance Sheet Data
Balance Sheet Data are updated annually except for assets and debts which are updated quarterly
