3 Companies Paying Dividends This Week

Three companies will be going ex-dividend in the next few days. In other words, you need to own them before a particular date to receive their dividends. Let’s take a look at those three firms.

Tuesday, 10 April 2018

On Tuesday, Qian Hu Corporation Limited (SGX: BCV), an integrated ornamental fish service provider, will be going ex-dividend. The company is dishing out 0.2 Singapore cent per share for the fourth quarter.

For the full year ended 31 December 2017, revenue rose 9.1% year-on-year to S$87.8 million while profit attributable to shareholders jumped 383.8% to S$329,000. All three business segments – Fish, Accessories, and Plastics – saw higher revenue contribution in the latest financial year.

Qian Hu ended Friday at S$0.191 per share, translating to a trailing price-to-earnings (PE) ratio of around 66 and a dividend yield of 1%.

Sunningdale Tech Ltd (SGX: BHQ) will be going ex-dividend on Friday. The firm is a manufacturer of precision plastic components serving mainly the automotive, consumer products and healthcare sectors. Sunningdale is giving out 4.5 Singapore cents per share for the fourth quarter.

The firm’s revenue for the 2017 full year rose 5.9% to S$724.5 million due to “an increase in revenue from all business segments”. The automotive business segment showed the highest revenue gain with a 7.5% year-on-year growth. However, net profit slumped 19.7% to S$31.4 million. The fall was mostly due to foreign exchange losses and lower gains on the disposal of property, plant and equipment.

On Friday, Sunningdale closed at S$1.86 apiece, giving a trailing PE ratio of around 11 and a trailing dividend yield of 3.8%.

Friday, 13 April 2018

On the same day as Sunningdale, Roxy-Pacific Holdings Ltd (SGX: E8Z), will be going ex-dividend as well. The company is a property and hospitality group with a focus on the Asia-Pacific region. It is paying 0.771 Singapore cent per share for the fourth quarter.

For the full year ended 31 December 2017, revenue tumbled 36% year-on-year to S$246.8 million, mainly due to lower contribution from the property development and property investment business segments. Meanwhile, net profit plunged 41% to S$29.4 million.

Roxy-Pacific’s shares last changed at hands at S$0.56 on Friday. This gives a price-to-book ratio of 1.3 and a dividend yield of 1.8%.
