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!

Defensive Blue Chip yield stock: StarHub or Kep Corp???

Just For Thinking ....


Dividend Investing Quiz time
Which one is the most likely defensive dividend yield play stock in SG market at last Friday market closing price and based on likely 2013 dividend payout?
  1. StarHub @ 4.7% dividend yield @ $4.26
  2. Kep Corp @ 4.1% dividend yield @ 10.91
What is your answer?
1 or 2?
Your answer is

Now Uncle8888 is asking you to study carefully into the table below
What did you see?
What is your answer now?



  1. But no one can be sure historical number data will repeat. So answer is don't know.

    1. Kepcorp has more room for price growth based on low P/E and assuming business can sustain earnings. The 0.6% difference in divy yield is insignificant. Will kepcorp's business slow down in the future, hence reflecting their low P/E? I dont know haha.

      Lately, analysts have talked up telcom shares and I think Starhub has limited upside. I may be wrong, but between the 2 companies, I choose Kepcorp. :)

  2. If we take last GFC in 2008/09, KepCorp and Starhub price fell ~70% and 35% respectively. This means StarHub is better defensive stock than Kepcorp.

    Of course, that was history.
