Singpost: $625 (FY 08, first quarter dividends of 0.0125 cents/share)
In August 08, I received $625 dividends from Singpost and made $528 of trading gains. I also bought HL Finance and DBS mainly for their dividends. Together, I have a net cashflow of $1,153 in July 08.
It was actually quite exciting and fun to trade shares even for modest gains. I actually have the target to gain $400 so as to achieve a net cashflow of $1,000 for month of August.
The market is really bad for August 08. STI went down about 6.5% this month. Nobody knows if the bottom has been reached. For me, I will just stick to income investing and hopefully reach my target of minimum $1,000 a month cashflow.
I have about $20,000 of cash standing waiting for more opportunities to enter the market. I do hope that I can sell off DBS at about $18.80 and above in Sept to prop up my cash holdings for better opportunities.
I am expecting $450 dividends from DBS, HL Finance and Saizen Reits to be credited into my account in Sept. It will be a “poor” month for me!
