Using dividends to provide a stable income

Read? Using dividends to provide a stable income

Those positive results do not mean that the income is guaranteed, of course, as share prices can also drop.

Investors who put money into Keppel Corp in 2014 when the share price was more than S$11 in order to get a high dividend, for example, have seen the share price fall to just over S$6 and annual dividends drop from 48 cents per share to 20 cents.


Individuals investing in shares for their dividends will need to select them carefully so that they balance the potential returns with the risks of investing.

Simply picking shares which have the highest dividend yields is not a particularly challenging process, as investment advisory firm The Motley Fool observes.

However, investors need to look beyond the yield and consider the company’s financial performance as well as its rate of dividend growth.

Our investing experience is very personal and practical on the ground; you don't make money or lose money during your time of investing and that doesn't mean other EARLIER or LATER investors will have the same outcome as you.

    Hahaha!!! This is a red herring AKA BS advice. Even bei kambings know better than to simply select highest dividend yielders for "stable income".

    I'm sure those investors who bought into SPH, Singpost, Sembcorp, Keppel, etc 4 years ago did their homework into earnings growth, business prospects, cash flows, expansion plans, debt levels, balance sheet strength. And not simply becoz "high dividend yield".

    Anyway stocks in Singapore not suitable to me for "stable income". Even for the so-called strongest backbone blue chip companies of Singapore economy, they haven't proven themselves capable of providing consistent increasing dividends year after year.

    Singapore (and most Asian) stocks are mainly for capital gains. This means investing at the right times, going in BIG, and riding them for as long as possible until the trend changes.
