The Smart Dividend Portfolio is around 5.1% as of 6 August 2020. That compared to The Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI) which has plunged over 19% since we bought our first stock. We are reasonably satisfied with the performance, but this is no time to be complacent.
We are happy to see that the portfolio is at the verge of turning green. But we will be the happiest if we manage to build an enduring portfolio that can keep paying income to support ourselves and our families.
