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

Saturday, November 30, 2013

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. :)

Do you join the NTUC membership to get the annual rebate?

AK said...
Yes, I have been a NTUC Fairprice shareholder since I was 25. ;p

DL said...
Hi AK, is the NTUC General Branch membership a worthy "investment"? How much do we need to spend at Fairprice in order to get the rebate of at least $117 (annual membership)?
Do you able to get back at least $117 since you only spend it necessarily?

AK said...
I think you are referring to a Union membership. I am not a Union member. I am a NTUC Fairprice shareholder. Shareholders don't pay any annual fee. ;p

foolish chameleon said...

how do u be a ntuc fairprice member? i also have ntuc insurance plan. but i dont rmbr having an ntuc card or anything like that.

not sure if its the same thing as NTUC general membership ? (which cost $117. yikes!)

Hi fc,

When I got my NTUC Income policy 20 years ago, I asked to be an NTUC Fairprice shareholder and it was approved. I understand from some readers that this is no longer possible. You have to be a union member first these days.
