Singapore STI Blue Chip Highest Dividend Yield

Singapore STI Blue Chip Highest Dividend Yield in Percent



For a change, we present Singapore STI Blue Chip Highest Dividend Yield in Percent at Singapore Savings Account Rates.

STI refers to Straits Times Index. The Straits Times Index (STI) comprises of 30 stocks listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange, ranked by market capitalisation and reviewed every six months. These STI stocks are commonly known as Blue Chips.

Of paramount note is the high dividends paid out by these stocks. They are much higher than interest earned from investing in savings account deposits.

Of course, another paramount note is that dividend income from STI stock investments are not guaranteed. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future performance.

And of even greater significance is that stock prices do not remain unchanged over time. Prices may go down during uncertain economic events or come under pressure for no apparent reason.

Your investment capital in stocks is not guaranteed. But money in savings account is guaranteed under Singapore's Deposit Insurance Scheme.

Singapore STI Blue Chip Highest Dividend Yield in Percent are now presented for personal information. You should re-confirm rates before you invest your money based on these dividend rates.


Singapore STI Blue Chip Highest Dividend Yield in % (as at market close of 26 September 2014):

(1) Singapore Press Holdings = 9.52

(2) Hutchison Port Holdings Trust = 7.72

(3) Ascendas Real Estate Investment Trust = 6.33

(4) CapitaMall Trust = 5.39

(5) Singapore Telecommunications Ltd = 4.44


Calculations based on most recent annualized dividend per share divided by its price per share. Dividend calculation includes special dividend announced in the past, if any.

Best Interest Rate for Retirement Account (RA) Monies

New RA savings are invested in SSGS (Special Singapore Government Securities) which earn a fixed coupon equal to either the 12-month average yield of the 10YSGS plus 1% at the point of issuance, or 4% per annum, whichever is the higher, adjusted yearly.

Given the lower 10YSGS yield, new RA savings will earn a fixed coupon of 4% (floor rate).

The interest rate to be credited to the RA is the weighted average interest rate of the entire portfolio of these SSGS, and adjusted yearly in January.

The weighted average interest of the entire portfolio of these SSGS is 4% at the moment, so the interest rate payable to CPF members on their RA balances from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2014 is 4% per annum, as announced on 13 December 2013.


Rates are subject to change without prior notice at discretion of the bank entity or finance company in 2014 and beyond. You should assess the suitability of these financial products based on your personal financial investment objectives.
