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).
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).
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 a couple of orgs and sold one since my last post. Bought the following shares on the following dates in October (some of which were very small odd lot orders to even out my holdings):
- 13: MRSGI @ ₱4.24
- 17: CNPF @ ₱15.40
- 18: JFC @ ₱245.20
- 18: BLFI @ ₱3.93
- 19: LR @ ₱4.03
- 19: SCC @ ₱41.00
- 19: SMC2F @ ₱81.50
- 30: ALCPB @ ₱108.00
Started to buy some ALCPB as an alternative to DDPR and the SMC preferred shares. At ₱108.00, net yield p.a. (for Filipino citizens) should be around 5.8%.
In November I bought the following shares on the following dates, just as in October, some were very small odd lot orders:
- 6: NIKL @ ₱7.47
- 6: FNI @ ₱3.01
- 10: CHIB @ ₱33.50
- 10: MBT @ ₱94.00
- 13: PBB @ ₱12.00
The only shares I sold since the last post was RFM @ ₱5.00. I sold shares I bought back in Aug 2016 (more than a year ago) @ ₱4.27. I made around 15.3% for that sale. Approximately around my 5-year XIRR of around 14% p.a. For comparison, the PSE index as a whole has returned around 25% from the start of the year. I haven’t done an analysis on my portfolio’s numbers, but that’s an idea. I think I’m far off from beating the market this year (note: I checked and I’m around 19% up YTD).
I’m trying to not sell anything even though I think the market is pretty high (the PSEi is around 22 p/e right now I believe). Mostly because of smarting from selling some SMPH, and WLCON before their peaks and also not being able to pick up SECB @ around ₱244.
I should have sold CEB when it was around ₱108.00 and above. I’m still thinking if I should sell some IMI @ around ₱21.50.
Stocks on my quite long buy watchlist are the following:
- ALCO @ ₱0.95
- AP @ ₱41.10 (seems like this is always on my watchlist)
- BLFI @ ₱3.84
- CHIB @ ₱33.50 (another one that’s always on my watchlist)
- CLC @ ₱9.24
- CPG @ ₱0.50
- DD @ ₱31.07
- ELI @ ₱0.66
- FLI @ ₱1.94
- FPH @ ₱61.90
- GTCAP @ ₱1172.00
- LR @ ₱3.73
- PHN @ ₱9.50
- PIP @ ₱2.64
- VUL @ ₱0.95
- X @ ₱4.55
I’m still wondering if SHLPH will announce cash dividends early next year.
I’ll post about October cash dividends received some time this month.
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.
So I bought ALCO at ₱1.01 yesterday… just before it crashed by almost 7% today. Sucks I know.
I haven’t done a recent XIRR but I’m around just 24% up from my capital/principal.
It’s been a bloodbath with recent IPOs, from SHLPH at around -4%, EAGLE at -0.8%, CLC at almost -8%, and CLI at around -3.4%. The only saving grace amongst IPOs is WLCON that’s up by around 63% (lower than its peak, but quite a gain nonetheless).
I’ve been unable to buy DDPR nor SMC2F since they’re both a bit high now.
I’m currently looking at FGEN (17.40), GTCAP (1168), HLCM (12.90), HOUSE (5.43), JGS (69.45), LR (4.19) and RFM (4.40).
I bought more SPC yesterday at ₱4.55 and today I bought LR at ₱4.88.
I bid on some BLFI and some SMC2F but they weren’t matched. SMC2F returns an annualized 5.7% net at its current price of ₱80.55, which is ever so slightly higher than DDPR. In hindsight, I should have tried to get DDPR since I was unable to get SMC2F.
SHLPH is slightly below IPO price. I’ve held on to it because of Shell’s dividend policy. I’m not so sure about holding on to EAGLE as the cement industry may have a glut in the next few years. The Philippine’s infrastructure play is ever so slooowly progressing. CLI still looks good. ALCO is starting to look like a bargain.
I’m still looking into getting more COSCO, PIP, HOUSE, FDC and RFM. I’ve also requested to get a few shares of CLC from my broker.
