It’s here!

Come August, and it will be the climax of the year for many dividend investors in Singapore. Public service announcement! Biannual dividend of SPDR Straits Times Index ETF (ES3) is here.

Ex-date is 2nd August 2019 (Friday) so take note if you’re going to be making any transactions soon. The distribution will be payable on 21 August 2019.

Feb 2019 Dividends : SGD 0.056
Aug 2019 Dividends : SGD 0.064

Adding up the two, we get a total of S$0.12 for the year 2019. Some basic numbers if you’re interested, that’s a current yield of 3.55% (and a cost yield of 3.86% for myself, if you’re curious).

Even better is the 1,000 units I bought using CPF-OA : a very decent 4.36% 😛
