Bro deathman91, if the company is not making a profit means our dividend is gone too?

There are companies which borrow debt to pay dividends but that of course won't last.

Most companies would pay dividends out of their cashflow before touching reserve or borrow debt.

Yup, probably. If you buy before ex-div, you get divvy, on ex-div date itself, no divvy.

Initially is as above, after 5 years of $0.20 divvy, the counter becomes free and lay golden eggs.

Example for me is MAIN, if I'm not wrong, it has cover 100%+/- of it's base cost for me liao, can hold forever.
Many people have these type of golden goose.

The dividend covered the base cost. How about the share price? I believe it is up...That golden grouse thing happens because the share price has gone up.

Nah, it did went up a good sum but even if it comes down, I'm still 0% risk by now.
The share price has in fact went down by nearly 30% already but can't hurt me at all.
Dividends are still increasing, bonus are still giving...

But you can calculate the dividend yield using limster's numbers which shows exact dividends given per year($1540) and the share price($7300) though you dunno how many shares he bought.
Just divide 1540 by 7300 as a percentage which is 21% dividend yield.
UOB's example would be 6.875%
To achieve above 20% p.a. dividend yield is a wet dream cum true!

Re-invest the dividends and compounded over 10 years will be wow..

Erm, hard but not really super difficult.

In fact, let's try 25% divvy!

Imagine you have capital of $500.
Buy 5 shares of a stock that cost $100 and give out 5% dividend.
So you pay $500 to get $25 dividend each year.
Sell 4 shares of the stock when it rise to $120.
So you get $480 back which is $80 profit and thus your 1 share cost price drop to $20 and yet you get $5 every year still.

Your capital in the market now is only $20 but you get $5 dividend every year. 25% divvy!

Well your method involves some trading to achieve the result (higher dividend yield).

True. Another slower way is to wait till it gets there. US has many dividend champions which,if one had bought 30 years ago, would be giving out high % dividends by now.

Question

Hi, I'm a first timer buying US shares.

I bought 10 shares of KO (Coca-Cola) on the 2/9/15 via UTRADE.

From Coca-Cola dividend website:
  • Declared - 16/07/15
  • Ex-Date - 11/09/15
  • Record - 15/09/15
  • Payable - 01/10/15
  • Amount - $0.33
  • Type - Regular Cash

May I know how long will it take for the money to be banked into my account?
