The Top Performing Billionaire Stocks With Dividend Yields Of Over 4%

Singapore’s stock market has its fair share of companies with billion-dollar market capitalisations.

But, not all billion-dollar companies are made equal. Some have a better performance than the rest. A recent report provided insights to Singapore’s best performing gargantuan companies. The report also sieved out the big companies that have a dividend yield of over 4%.

Here are the five billion-dollar companies with the best performance and a dividend yield of 4% or more (figures as of 25 November 2016, unless otherwise stated):

  1. Venture Corporation Limited  (SGX: V03) emerged as the top dog in terms of total return over the last three years. The contract manufacturer for electronic products registered a total return of over 15%, has a market cap of $2.7 billion, and offers a 5.2% dividend yield.
  2. Mapletree Industrial Trust  (SGX: ME8U) is at second place with a total return of 13.2% over the last three years. The Singapore-based industrial real estate investment trust (REIT) has a market cap of around $2.9 billion and offers a distribution yield of 7.1%.
  3. Mapletree Industrial Trust’s cousin, Mapletree Commercial Trust (SGX: N2IU), is in third place with a three-year total return of 12.2%. The REIT, which focuses on commercial and retail properties, has a market cap of $4.1 billion and offers a distribution yield of 5.9%.
  4. A third Mapletree entity, Mapletree Greater China Commercial Trust (SGX: RW0U), clinched the fourth spot with a total return of 10% over the last three years. The REIT owns mainly commercial real estate in the Greater China region and has a market cap of $2.7 billion. Its distribution yield is the highest among the Mapletree family mentioned here, standing at 7.5%.
  5. In fifth place is Keppel Infrastructure Trust (SGX: A7RU).

It has a market cap of $1.9 billion and a dividend yield of 7.7%.

Looking back gives us clues on what a winning company looks like. Past performance, though, does not always lead to future performance. As Foolish investors, we might want to put our thinking hats on to figure out whether a company is able to match its past performance.
