Cash dividends in Apr 2018

Received the following cash dividends in April:

  • SMC2F: ₱1.27635/share, around 1.63%, quarterly (6.54% p.a.)
  • SMC2C: ₱1.50/share, around  1.87%, quarterly (7.50% p.a.)
  • PHN: ₱0.40/share, around 5.01% p.a.
  • DMC: ₱0.48/share, around 4.48% p.a.
  • NIKL: ₱0.12/share, around 2.35% p.a.
  • LTG: ₱0.20/share, around 0.92% p.a.
  • AEV: ₱1.28/share, around 2.03% p.a.
  • AP: ₱1.39/share, around 3.56% p.a
  • GTCAP: ₱3.00/share, around 0.28% p.a.
  • SHNG: ₱0.1255/share, around 3.87%, semi-annually, (6.03% p.a.)
  • DDPR: ₱1.61945/share, around 1.60%, quarterly, (6.42% p.a.)
  • PCOR: ₱0.15/share, around 1.56% p.a.
  • SHLPH: ₱5.14/share, around 9.55% p.a.
  • CLI: ₱0.15/share, around 3.04% p.a.
  • MPI: ₱0.076/share, around 1.40%, semi-annually, (2.04% p.a.)
  • SECB: ₱1.50/share, around 0.74%, semi-annually, (1.49% p.a.)
  • TEL: ₱28.00/share, around 2.00%, semi-annually, (?? p.a.)*

All above % estimates are against price at close of May 11, and are the gross value/share, not taking into account the 10% withholding tax for Filipino citizens. This might inflate the % cash divs due to the recent market downturn.

*For semi-annual payouts, I typically add the previous cash dividend to this last one and just divide by the current price, however I’m not confident that TEL will be giving out as much as what they paid out back in Sep 2017.

Received a net (after 10% withholding tax) of around 0.88% of my principal from cash dividends in March (which if the equivalent would occur each month of the year, would equal to around 10.61% p.a…. and would also mean that most of the cash dividends I receive occur in April as I’m sure I don’t reach half of that percentage in a year).

Cash Dividends in Mar 2018

I bought shares in just two more orgs in March:

  • 20: SCC @ ₱29.95
  • 22: AC @ ₱931.00

I can’t really call the ₱75.00 MBT SRO a typical buy so I won’t call it that. I typically exercise all SROs as it doesn’t make sense not to.

I don’t hold any orgs that paid out cash dividends for the month of February 2018.

Received the following cash dividends in March:

  • FB (PF): ₱0.20/share, around 0.3%, quarterly (1.23% p.a.)*
  • GLO: ₱22.75/share, around  1.47%, quarterly (5.90% p.a.)
  • ALCPB: ₱1.76145/share, around 1.69%, quarterly (6.77% p.a.)
  • HOUSE: ₱0.25/share, around 3.67%, semi-annually (4.41% p.a.)
  • RFM: ₱0.08571/share, around 1.77%, semi-annually,  (2.95% p.a.)
  • MBT: ₱1.00/share, around 1.17% p.a.
  • IMI: ₱0.235/share, around 1.52% p.a.
  • SCC: ₱1.25/share, around 4.05%, semi-annually, (?)**
  • ABS: ₱0.92/share, around 3.28% p.a.
  • BEL: ₱0.12/share, around 3.57% p.a.
  • PX: ₱0.04/share, around 0.70%, semi-annually,  (1.41% p.a.)
  • BLFI: ₱0.10/share, around 3.19% p.a.
  • LR: ₱0.07/share, around 1.53%, semi-annually,  (3.28% p.a.)
  • MWC: ₱0.4302/share, around 1.54%, semi-annually,  (3.07% p.a.)

All above % estimates are against price at close of April 30, and are the gross value/share, not taking into account the 10% withholding tax for Filipino citizens. This might inflate the % cash divs due to the recent market downturn.

*Using / 10 as PF became FB and split.

** SCC typically pays out in March and September. I didn’t put in an annual rate as the stock has split 300% and didn’t want to use the last dividend’s payment (taking the split into account).

Received a net (after 10% withholding tax) of around 0.34% of my principal from cash dividends in March (which if the equivalent would occur each month of the year, would equal to around 4.09% p.a.).

Cash Dividends in Jan 2018

Received the following cash dividends in January:

  • AC: ₱3.46/share, around 0.3% annually
  • SMC2C: ₱1.50/share, around 1.87%, quarterly (7.50% p.a.)
  • SMC2F: ₱1.27635/share, around 1.61%, quarterly (6.47% p.a.)
  • DDPR: ₱1.61945/share, around 1.56%, quarterly (6.25% p.a.)
  • SMC: ₱0.35/share, around 0.24%, quarterly (0.99% p.a.)
  • FGENG: ₱3.8904/share, around 3.48%, semi-annually (6.97% p.a.)
  • COSCO: ₱0.10/share, around 1.3% annually

All above % estimates are against price at close of February 23, and are the gross value/share, not taking into account the 10% withholding tax for Filipino citizens.

Received a net (after 10% withholding tax) of around 0.39% of my principal from cash dividends in January (which if the equivalent would occur each month of the year, would equal to around 4.70% p.a.).

I obviously like preferred shares, and around 20% of my portfolio is composed of them. I’ll write about their optional redemption dates in a future post (e.g. SMC2C is September 2019 and I have no intention to buy more now).

Cash Dividends in Nov and Dec 2017

Received the following cash dividends in November and December:

  • MWC: ₱0.4244/share, around 1.48%, semi-annually (2.97% p.a.)

  • RFM: ₱0.0575/share, around 1.19%, semi-annually (2.98% p.a.)
  • SECB: ₱1.50/share, around 0.59%, semi-annually (1.19% p.a.)

  • SPC: ₱0.40/share, around 7.29%, semi-annually (14.59% p.a.)
  • MWIDE: ₱0.05/share, around 0.23% p.a

All above % estimates are against price at close of January 26, 2018 (which might have diluted the returns,  except for Telcos and SPC, as the market has had a bit too much ‘irrational exuberance’ of late) and are the gross value/share, not taking into account the 10% withholding tax for Filipino citizens.

Received a net (after 10% withholding tax) of around 0.03% of my principal from cash dividends in November (which if the equivalent would occur each month of the year, would equal to around 0.44% p.a.).

For December, received a net (after 10% withholding tax) of around 0.17% of my principal from cash dividends (which if the equivalent would occur each month of the year, would equal to around 2.04% p.a.).

The only stock dividend I received was the 8% stock dividend of CHIB at the start of November 2017.

Found the Dividend Yields site that shows the yield of the PSE index of 30 shares.

Cash Dividends in October 2017

Received the following cash dividends in October:

  • SMC2C: ₱1.50/share, around 1.82%, quarterly (7.31% p.a.)
  • SMC2F: ₱1.27635/share, around 1.58%, quarterly (6.35% p.a.)
  • DDPR: ₱1.61945/share, around 1.54%, quarterly (6.19% p.a.)
  • LR: ₱0.08/share, around 2.1%, semi-annually (4.05% p.a.)
  • FGEN: ₱0.35/share, around 2.0%, annually

All above % estimates are against price at close of November 22, and are the gross value/share, not taking into account the 10% withholding tax for Filipino citizens.

Received a net (after 10% withholding tax) of around 0.37% of my principal from cash dividends in October (which if the equivalent would occur each month of the year, would equal to around 4.47% p.a.).

Bought GMA7@₱6.05

Bought some GMA7@₱6.05 today (it closed 2 centavos lower at ₱6.03). Hoping that they would continue on:

  • giving good cash dividends and
  • their streak of increasing earnings/share.

Its current P/E is around 10.4 (around its 5 year low of 10.29), P/B of 2.4, YTD net income is up 70+% but its Q/Q (last year) net income is down -48%.

I’m thinking SHLPH should declare cash dividends in the next few months and if only it didn’t already have a good portion of my portfolio, I’d buy some more.

Cash Dividends in September 2017

Received the following cash dividends in September:

  • GLO: ₱22.75/share, around 1.1%, quarterly (4.4% p.a.)
  • PF: ₱1.50/share, around 0.48%, quarterly (1.9% p.a.)
  • TEL:  ₱48.00/share, around 2.8%, semi-annually (4.4% p.a.)
  • SCC:  ₱5.00/share, around 2.9%, semi-annually (5.8% p.a.)*
  • SHNG:  ₱0.07/share, around 2.2%, semi-annually (5.1% p.a.)
  • SGI: ₱0.07/share, around 4.89%, annually
  • MPI: ₱0.0345/share, around 0.5%, semi-annually (1.49% p.a.)

All above % estimates are against price at close of October 4, and are the gross value/share, not taking into account the 10% withholding tax for Filipino citizens.

Per my previous post, received a net of around 0.297% of my principal from cash dividends in September (which if the equivalent would occur each month of the year, would equal to around 3.56% p.a.).

* based on Aug 18, 2017 closing price, which was before the 300% stock dividend

Bought LR@₱4.50, EDC@₱5.86, and AEV@₱74.05

Bought LR on Sep 14, EDC on Sep 29, and AEV on Oct 2.

Buying EDC at this time is a gamble, but it’s a gamble I’m willing to take as I don’t think the price should be this low. The price has gone down a few percentages points since I bought it, and I might buy it again.

Received a net of around 0.297% of my principal from cash dividends in September (equal to around 3.56% p.a.). I’ll write about the received cash dividends in an upcoming post.

Cash Dividends in July 2017

Received the following cash dividends in July:

  • SPC: ₱0.40/share, around 8.8%, annually*
  • CEB: ₱2.75/share, around 2.4%, annually
  • SMC2F: ₱1.27635/share, around 1.57%, quarterly
  • SMC2C: ₱1.50/share, around 1.86%, quarterly
  • HLCM: ₱0.98/share, around 7.9%, annually**
  • DDPR: ₱1.61945/share, around 1.54%, quarterly
  • MEG: ₱0.05410389/share, around 1%, annually
  • ROCK: ₱0.0594/share, around 3.3%, annually
  • SMC: ₱0.35/share, around 1/3 of 1%, quarterly

All above % estimates are against price on Sep 12, and are the gross value/share, not taking into account the 10% withholding tax for Filipino citizens.

Cash dividends in July 2017 are higher than my typical month and it made up 0.59% of my whole principal. Meaning if I always had as much cash dividends in a month, my principal would be getting around 7% p.a. gross. This is due to the quarterly SMC and DD preferred shares paying during the month, plus the annual cash div payable of higher yield shares, SPC, HLCM and ROCK (I consider anything above 3% as fairly high yield).

*This was supposed to have been paid on June 30, but it arrived to me in July, hence I’m accounting it in July.

**Noted this share fell in value in the past few weeks which has increased the cash dividend yield.
