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!

10% dividend yield for 10 years? Fact or Fiction? (3)

Read? 10% dividend yield for 10 years? Fact or Fiction? (2)

Here is the double!

Semb Corp FY 2011 full year dividend = $0.17

Highest dividend yield = 23.1%
Average dividend yield = 11.9%

High yield for a blue chip is not a fiction!



  1. Hi,
    Amazing performance! You recoup your capital in 5 year from dividend alone and now your have perpectual dividend for life (like freehold property).
    I guess the strategy is to buy blue chip at LOW and hold; beside regular dividend and also have unrealised profit as the stock appreciate in price.


  2. That's because you got it at a low price; if you got a blue chip in venture would your returns be as good?

  3. In the famous book entitled Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, Jessie Livermore said: “After spending many years in Wall Street and after making and losing millions of dollars I want to tell you this: It never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It always was my sitting. Got that? My sitting tight!

    It is no trick at all to be right on the market. You always find lots of early bulls in bull markets and early bears in bear markets. I've known many men who were right at exactly the right time, and began buying or selling stocks when prices were at the very level, which should show the greatest profit.

    And their experience invariably matched mine -- that is, they made no real money out of it.

    I found it one of the hardest things to learn. But it is only after a stock operator has firmly grasped this that he can make big money. It is literally true that millions come easier to a trader after he knows how to trade than hundreds did in the days of his ignorance.”

    Men who can both be right and sit tight are uncommon.

  4. CW8888,

    That's the advantage of not being a one trick pony ;)

    Fish for small kunings (rounds 1,2,3 kopi money trades) while waiting for big fishes to bite.

    Got big fish, who cares if you use net, spear, or fishing rod?

    I not into fishing so don't know which fishing method is better analogy for dividends and capital gains play...

    But I know one style for sure! Dynamite fishing is like leverage trading. Get it right, lots of easy fishes. Get it wrong, sayonara.


  5. haha i think i quote the exact same quote on fats blog. i absolutely agreed. there is no doubt about it. that does not mean i can do it at ease.

    CW8888, judging from the info i get from your blog, there is no doubt you are chimp. my respect.

    now my pants are down, i'll have to pull it right up again. damn it sure not easy. Dynamite fishing? haha
