    Dato’ Sri Najib memaklumkan ekonomi negara kita berkembang pesat.. namun dividen bagi ASN3 bagi tahun 2010 masih lagi 6%… kalau Dato Hamat Kama Piah masih hidup sehingga 20 tahun lagi… dividen itu masih dalam angka yang sama.. samalah kita berdoa agar Doto’ Hamat Kama Piah maut dengan segera untuk hentikan segala pembohongan ini…

    Dato ‘Sri Najib informed our country’s economy growing rapidly .. but ASN3 dividend for the year 2010 is still 6% … Dato Hamat Kama Piah if still alive up to 20 years … the dividend is still in the same numbers .. Let us pray for Doto ‘Hamat Kama Piah death immediately to stop all these Bullshit ..

      6% is not that bad. If you are not satisfied you are free to invest in other funds. Anyway it it not nice to pray for other people to die.

        Recent ASB income = 8.8%
        Bank loan interest rate = 5.6%
        ASB income profit = 8.8% – 5.6% = 3.2%!

        Ok gak tu… (“,)

          actually, 7.65+1.15
          1.15 is calculated based on 10year monthly balance.
          dont expect to get fully 8.8 if ur investment is less than 10year.
          apepn mmg xrugi pn wat.. 🙂

    Fantastic website you have here.
    I would like to know whether the max ASB cash deposit is still RM200k per person and additional RM200k for certificate (if I take out an ASB loan with an eligible bank)?
    Thank you

  • 9th January, 2011, 1:33 pm

    The maximum you can deposit is RM200k be it passbook or certificate.

    Fixed Price Funds have more than 10 billion except Amanah Saham Didik, fully subscribed in a minute for Chinese holders. but for Variable price funds, fund size not more than 3 billion. until today, variable price funds still not fully subscribed due to the 5% charged and 3% charged on EPF, plus the variable price of NAV.
