  2. As passive retail investor into STI index, you still need big ball. No exception. Right?

  3. Hi CW,
    What happened? 2002 to 2007 dividends were unbelievable high? What actually were the dividend yield/year? Some of the years seemed to be returns of capital rather dividends?

    1. Don't know. Not following STI ETF.

      Anyway; it seems dividend yield is 3-4% if no big bear

  4. The average number or the mean is a very dangerous concept i learn. Don't assume the distributions and the mean are always based on a symmetrical bell curve. Don,t laugh at me, i may not know how to calculate the statistics but i quite sure i understand the concept.
    Anyway theory and practical don't always "agree".

  5. Hi Temperament,

    In January 2008, they had a 10:1 stock split, i.e. every unit was split into units.

    Adjusted for that, the dividends are as follows:-

    Record Date Payable Date Distribution Date Amount per unit (SGD)
    15/08/2013 19/08/2013 28/08/2013 $0.045

    The link for this is

    http://www.spdrs.com.sg/etf/fund/ref_doc/STI%20Dividend.pdf

    It is not return of capital, it is plain distribution of dividend. They get dividend from STI stock (most of which pay dividend).

    Weighted average yield based on last year is 3.34% for STI (This was based on data which is around 2-3 months ago)

    STI ETF trailing one year dividend is 8.8 cents, at current prices it is 2.6% yield.

    I hope this helps

    Regards
