2013 High Dividend Stocks in Singapore - Part 1

Part 2 is out as well.

I am close to 5 months late in publishing this. But better late than never. Here is the new and updated list of high quality dividend stocks traded in the Singapore stock market.


This is the first half of this year's list.

This round produced 28 names in total and I have splitted up the list into 2 tranches so as to gain more traffic :). Dividend related posts are the best traffic drawer for this blog in this yield hungry environment in an even yield hungrier Singapore.

Actually, to be fair to Singaporeans, this is a global phenomenon as central bankers drive down the risk-free rate and as a result pushed up asset prices and inflation. To more advanced readers, you would know this is unchartered territory in the history of global finance. What does it mean if risk-free rate goes to zero? This is something never taught in textbooks. In fact, it should never happened. Without the risk-free rate (usually taken to be the 10-year government bond yield) how do you price all other assets like corporate bonds, stocks, real estate and other instruments? Nobody has an answer, and meanwhile asset prices shoot through the roof. More on this in time.

So, knowing that will make studying this current dividend screen all the more important! Make sure you study every name here religiously!

Ok, just kidding. As I have emphasized in all my past annual dividend posts (below), this screen alone cannot help you make money. It is just a starting point for you to study the stocks here in detail. To really know a stock, I try to answer 10 key questions to understand a stock as dictated in my Stocks page.
