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 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.)
  • SMC: ₱0.35/share, around 0.24%, quarterly (0.99% 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.)
  • HOUSE: ₱0.05/share, around 0.79%, semi-annually (4.78% p.a.)
  • GLO: ₱22.75/share, around 1.30%, quarterly (5.21% p.a.)
  • PX: ₱0.04/share, around 0.56%, semi-annually (1.12% p.a.)
  • ALCPB: ₱1.76145/share, around 1.62%, quarterly (6.51% p.a.)
  • FPH: ₱1.00/share, around 1.59%, semi-annually (3.18% p.a.)
  • JFC: ₱1.18/share, around 0.40%, semi-annually (0.74% p.a.)
  • PF: ₱1.50/share, around 0.23%, quarterly (0.95% 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.

Sold GLO @ ₱2022, mistakenly bought MWIDE @ ₱17.72

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.
