With this development, soon there will be UITFs that provide passive income via dividends, without the need for Juan to redeem his investment principal. So Juan can just hold on to his principal, enjoy the capital appreciation, while reaping the unit-payment income on the side.
At market price of 11.60 per share, the Php0.45 dividend is already a 3.88% return (not yet net of tax). So what? Well this is among the biggest dividends I’ve received percent wise. The usual I get is 1% to 2% of stock price.
This is sort of the cut-off in determining to whom the dividends will be paid out to. The ex-div date is usually 3 trading days before the record date.
