As dividend investors, it is important not to be enticed by a one-off big dividend payment. Dividends should be sustainable and the history of dividend payment tells us something about it. We hope that the Dividend Per Share chart over the past 10 years gave you a good idea about the consistent dividend payers in Singapore.

However, that alone is not enough.

Dividend stocks have mixed results beating the stock market in the long run.

Hence, when we look for dividend stocks to add to the BigFatPurse portfolio, we use a proven Quality factor to sieve out stocks that can give above average returns.

In short, we look for dividend paying stocks with the potential of giving us capital gains as well.

And we reveal the details of this ‘upgraded’ dividend strategy at our Dividend Investing Mastery Course.

    Hi just a small question:
    Is L09 a dual listed stock? It’s last quoted price was years ago….not sure how to compute the dividend based on that.

      Yes, it is dual listed. The Singapore counter is very illiquid so if can get the current price would be a good deal.
