It is the time of the year again when we look back and review our old goals before making new ones. At the start of 2012, I aimed to achieve S$700 per month in dividends. I did it. In fact, I surpassed my initial target. You can check out my 2012's financial goal here.
2012 has been a good year for me. Let's take a final look at how my Singapore dividend portfolio performed in 2012.
I grew my portfolio by adding more telcos and REITs. Not too shabby. ^^
Financial Independence at 30 years old
I really hope to celebrate my 30th birthday in 2013 by achieving S$1k per month (S$12k per annum) in dividends. Based on my current portfolio, I will be receiving an estimated S$11.3k in 2013. That is still a little way off my target.
- Starhub (10 lots) = S$2, 000
- Singtel (7 lots) = S$1, 106
- AIMS AMP (18 lots) = S$1, 800
- SPH (5 lots) = S$1, 200
- CMT (7 lots) = S$672
- M1 (5 lots) = S$725
- CACHE (10 lots) = S$857
- FCT (7 lots) = S$758
- PLife REIT (4 lots) = S$412
- Suntec REIT (6 lots) = S$564
- First REIT (10 lots) = S$672
- Sabana REIT (6 lots) = S$561
*These figures were based on 2012's dividend payout for ease of calculations
For 2013, I have a war chest of around S$20k, ready to deploy should the market have a correction. This is gonna be a defining year for me!
