Another wild swing in the stock market on the month of September. However, it did recover toward the end of the month. I tally my dividend/interest received and I was surprised that it hit 6.8K. It does feel like a bonus month as some of my financial stocks listed in UK/EU restored their dividend and give my portfolio dividend a nice bump. My YTD dividend received from my investment account hit 44K which basically covered all my earlier realized loss that occur in March when I sell off some of my riskier investment.
Monthly Dividend/Interest earned Y-to-Y changes from 2017 to 2020:
I have another 4 bonds being called. 2 of them are from Prudential Finance and there were my favorite investment grade bond which offer good yield and a lot of stability to my portfolio throughout the turbulent year of 2020. I will be receiving a total of 26k USD cash from these called bond. Due to the record high bond market, bond yield rate like our bank deposit interest has been dismally low and I could not find any bond to reinvest. I have used the extra cash from the bond call to purchase 3 dividend stocks listed on LSE (BATS, GSK and LGEN). I also initialed a position on Hong Kong Land as the dividend yield is almost 6%. Currently, I find the valuation of Hong Kong land very attractive compare to all the Reits listed on SGX which have been cutting dividend. I am keeping my finger cross that all the dividends from my recent purchase to replace my bond will be safe.
