Dividend 2022

That's it for me with regards to total dividend for the year 2022. It fell short of the 60k per year that I projected mid of this year. Total of $59,629.

However, it would have been around $63,000 if I didn't sell off my growth stocks that are providing dividend in this quarter. I recycled the proceeds to REITs.

I'm looking forward to the next quarter when most of my REITs will be paying out the dividends.


  1. Wow, that's a lot of passive income! Good that SREITs had for now stopped its mad plunge. Starting to worry about future distribution cut if interest rates go up too high until the recent good news on lower than expected inflation in US.

  3. Congratulations HRI!

    2022 has been a good year for dividend investors. Companies are rebounding after being ravaged by the Covid pandemic thd previous two years (2020 & 2021). Then dividends were cut or in many cases, totally stopped! Thus, it is with huge relief (& only fair) the companies are now making up for those two years. Likewise, 2022 has been a very good year for landlords with rents sky rocketting.

    Like you I am very pleasantly surprised by my dividend income for 2022, coming in at an all time high (ATH) of $88,000. The last ATH was $78,800, in 2019 before Covid. Then it dropped to $64,000 in 2020 and slowly crept back up to $67,000 in 2021.

    I see that you are taking a break from work. It is good to have such breaks once in a while to rejuvenate and to re-evaluate our life's goals and direction. However, I would urge caution to turn it into a retirement as you are still young and life can throw you many curve balls along the way, and placing before you many unplanned expenses.

    On the flip side, reaching financial independence means that you could save 100% or more of your salary if you continue to work. We achieved FI in 2016 when our passive income (comprising dividends, rental & interests from CPF) hit $150,000. We continued to work, saved more than 100% of our salaries, and invest each year. Our passive income has crossed $200,000 already by Nov this year!

    So if you can, shd try and work and shore up your savings to handle inflation and unplanned situations.

    Good luck!

  4. Very impressive, congrats! That and your base of more than a mil is very impressive! Looking to emulate but will take years.

  5. A very strong track record of dividend income despite the poor performance in financial markets this year!
