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!

Yield of dreams: Investors have "a once in a lifetime opportunity" in blue chips (4)

Read? Yield of dreams: Investors have "a once in a lifetime opportunity" in blue chips (3)

CEO Loo didn't want to upset shareholder's yield by ring-fencing the huge fine. With the final dividend of 14 cents; Uncle8888's Yield of dream on Kep Corp is still not broken. Heng Ah! 

Since he has first invested in Kep Corp in 18 Sep 2001; every year he is happy with the dividend yield or so called "passive" income.

That year he has invested is still the lowest dividend yield over the past 16 years!


  1. CW,

    With dividend yields like these, who would want to voluntarily top-up CPF?


    Same stock, investors who entered at below $2 and those at above $10 may have different viewpoints on buy-and-hold ;)

    Those who bought Keppel above $10 would probably feel their panadols not powderful enough to numb the pain :(

  2. Congrats Uncle8888! :)

    Hope you'll still get to enjoy nice food at the coming AGM after they ring-fenced the fine! LOL!

    Inflation & commodities are bouncing back this year, so companies like Keppel should do well :)

    Can ask mgmt for shareholders' buffet on Keppel Island for 2019 ... Prive not bad. Kekeke!!

  3. Give 14c to play down the millions fine? Go ask the directors why and who is responsible?

  4. Those who are responsible not around; but the case on each individual not over yet.

  5. [SINGAPORE] Several former executives of Keppel Corp have been arrested by Singaporean authorities in a probe related to charges its rig-building unit bribed Brazilian officials, The Straits Times reported on Friday.

    Keppel Offshore & Marine in December agreed to pay US$422 million to resolve investigations into the matter by authorities in the United States, Brazil and Singapore.

    But Singapore's Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC) and the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) said at the time that investigations regarding the individuals involved were ongoing.

    The Straits Times said more than six people were currently out on bail connected with case.
