Supporting my companies and getting 'paid' in the process.

Recognise these brands?


Or these?


These are brands that belong to QAF Limited.

Today, I was pleasantly surprised to see Cowhead brand's organic rolled oats.


Better still, they were on special offer. S$4.95 for two packets (500 grams each) at NTUC Fairprice.

Pesticides free!

What makes the purchase even more satisfying is that I am a shareholder of QAF Limited (and also NTUC Fairprice).


I like supporting my companies and getting some dividends in the process. Good idea?
------------
Update (18 June 2016):


Money from NTUC Fairprice.
Net of deductions, it is a rebate of 3.35% on my purchases.

This is on top of receiving Link points ($1 spent = 2 pts. Exchange 3,000 points for $20 Fairprice voucher. 1.33% rebate.) and also a 5% cashback from my credit card! 

AK will get more free grocery this month!

Like supporting our companies and being paid for it? I am sure we do!

Hi AK,

I'm looking some stocks in my watch list and noted that QAF is almost at its 52 weeks low. The yield has improved to above 6% and looks attractive to me. I'm wondering why it seems to be unloved.IS it cos of its poor bakery business and the failed venture overseas?

I wonder at what price would you likely to add more of this to your portfolio?

Hi Cindy,

Strange, isn't it? There is no accounting for Mr. Market's behaviour, really. :)

Looking at the charts, the Fibo golden ratios are at 75c and 72.5c next. These are where we might find some support but in a downtrend, it is hard to say if these supports would hold up.

I see a positive divergence though. So, it could be a good idea to start nibbling. ;p

Hi Ah John,

I believe they are the same thing. Just different names. :)
