There are quite a numbers of good dividend stocks in Singapore. Below are some criteria that you may want to consider when picking dividend stocks 1) Revenue and income growing or stable for the past 5 years. 2) Dividend stable or growing for the past 5 years 3) Dividend Yield is more than 3%. 4) Payout ratio is stable and less than 100%. 5) The company business will still be viable in the next 5 years. 6) Avoid small cap stock for dividend play.

Some of the stocks are Capitaland, the 3 banks, SGX, ComfortDelgro, SATS, ST Engineering, Singtel. Just to name a few.

Additional point to note, If you have a choice to choose between REITs and Business Trust, do just go only for the REITs.

Hope that help.

You can consider companies which have a resilient business model. Examples are telcos, services companies (E.g. transportation) and banks. However, you will need to do your research to decide if you like the figures you see (fundamental analysis) as well as wait for the right entry point in terms of pricing. Some popular stocks would be DBS/OCBC/UOB, Singtel, Comfortdelgro, SATS, VICOM, etc.

SGX StockFacts allows you to search for dividend yield stocks. The most important factor to take note isnt about the dividend yield but the sustainability of the dividend.

I use Payout Ratio and Free Cash Flow to determine the sustainability of the dividend. For payout ratio, it must be less than 100% and for free cash flow, it must be more than the dividends paid to investors.

I recently read an article that lists the stocks that pay dividends quarterly.

2 companies that I saw that might be interesting would be DBS and SGX.

Other than that, it will be mostly REITS counters

I use this website to shortlist the stocks, then research on them to see if they're something I like before I buy. Hope this helps! https://www.dividends.sg/

Hmm other than REITs and Trusts, there are quite a few good ones but there are certain criterias you may want to take note of :

  1. Increasing profits for the past 5 years at least
  2. Dividend growth for the past 5 years
  3. Dividends are sustainable, either have less than 100% payout ratio or enough extra cash to pay
  4. Company has strong fundamentals and a competitive edge against competitors in the same industry

A few good examples that are on my watchlist or are already in my portfolio would be :

  1. SATS
  2. Singtel
  3. VICOM
  4. ComfortDelGro
  5. ST Engineering
  6. DBS
