I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

  1. Dear CW8888,

    Using a 10% dividend yield and assuming all dividends are reinvested, it will actually take about 7+ years to double the initial investment (using the rule of 72).

    This is without considering that the share price may increase over time, or that the dividend yield (as a dollar amount) may increase over time as well.

    All in all, should this be a real 'pillow stock strategy', folks should be smiling in their sleep knowing that their $X investment today would grow to $2X in just about 7 years, haha.

    Time in the market + good fundamentals = wealth.

  2. Actually, it is very harder to reinvest dividends received at the same yield e.g. 10% in this case so realistically it will take more than 7+ yrs to double the initial investment.

    Sometime, reinvestment will have risks and may also fail. That is the truth in investing and re-investing, nothing is certain.

  3. Hi
    Me think any stock/bond that gives you 10% yield is not sustainable. i don't think you can find any historical chart of this kind of stock/bond.
    Why? Because we all would love it very much. Maybe in the years where inflation were more than 10 %. But i still doubt it can be sustainable?

  4. It may be possible with growth-dividend stocks at the future Big Bear markets :-)

  5. I dun think such stocks exist in our SGX. 10% dividend yield for 10 years? Absolutely no, as least not in SGX.
