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.).

So… I was supposed to sell some MWIDE… BUT, with the platform I’m using one could easily make a mistake of buying instead of selling… sooo… I bought some MWIDE even though I was intending to sell some, given that it was just at ₱14.88 a few weeks back (Mar 6, 2017). I’m crossing my fingers (and being irrational) that this will be a re-run of when I mistakenly bought TUGS instead of selling it a few months back. TUGS went up probably double of what I made… but I had sold it by that time. For a while MWIDE was trading at ₱17.80 after I bought it… but it closed at ₱17.50. Oh well. Maybe I’ll just hold on to it for the long term.
Sold some Globe Telecom at ₱2022 (it closed ten pesos above that) as it was just ₱1479 on Dec 28, 2016… had to lock in some gains, aside from it being right after the quarterly cash divs of GLO (paid earlier in Mar). GLO quarterly cash divs were at ₱22.75 / share last time around, which gives around a 4.5% p.a. yield @ ₱2000 / share.
Also received some cash divs of MWC (of 0.4244 / share) today. MWC typically gives out cash divs twice a year in Mar and Oct. Yield is approximately 2.7% p.a.
Sold half of my LTG shares for ₱14.90 back in Mar 22 that in hindsight might not have been the best thing to do (it closed at ₱16.08 today), especially since my net gain was just slightly over 3% for holding a stock for more than three months. This is below my IRR of greater than 11%. I guess I just thought that it’s better to gain rather than see and wait for a stock in case it goes below purchase price. I did hold on to my other half of shares which is currently showing a paper gain of around over 19%.
As I said in previous posts on what I was planning to purchase, in the past week I bought some more ALCO @ ₱1.38, CPG @ ₱0.495, MPI @ ₱6.12 and SGI @ ₱1.39.
Looking at HLCM the past few days, but it went up 3.2% today, so I might hold off… or maybe buy at the higher price. May sell some GLO or MWIDE as I’d need to get ready for the stock rights of CHIB (to be priced on Apr 6, offered from Apr 24 to May 5, with a tentative listing date of May 10).
Excited about the WLCON listing tomorrow. Got a very limited amount of shares. Read somewhere it was 3x oversubscribed. At the offer price though, the price was quite dear. Let’s see how the market thinks about it tomorrow.
PHN ex-divs tomorrow, payment is supposed to be on Apr 21. Also received my PX cash div of ₱0.04 / share and BEL’s cash div of ₱0.095 / share recently (PX’s cash div yield is so low I’m not going to even try to compute it, BEL’s is around 2.3%).
Received some Globe Telecom cash dividends a few days ago (March 9, 2017). At ₱22.75 per share divided by last Friday’s closing price of ₱1910.00, the dividend gives a gross annual cash dividend of around 4.7% (note that this is a fourth, as Globe typically gives out cash dividends quarterly).
Emperador’s recent price dive seems excessive if its just because of getting taken out of the index. I’m looking into getting some before the March 29, 2017 ex-dividend date. At a cash div rate of ₱0.1865 per share divided by last Friday’s (March 10, 2017) closing price of ₱6.35 would give a gross annual cash dividend of around 2.9%. I somehow don’t expect Emperador to change its dividend policy within the year, unless there was some extraordinary gain somewhere.
I’ll also start posting some quotes I like which are related to investing in one way or another.
