We reach towards the end of the year 2011. For ASB & ASN unitholders, it is the time for them to earn dividends for their investment.
Based on the information obtained from Amanah Saham Nasional Berhad (ASNB) webpage, transaction for Amanah Saham Bumiputera (ASB) & Amanah Saham Nasional (ASN) will be suspended to facilitate the issuance and computation of ASB & ASN dividend for year 2011.
ASB transaction will be suspended from 21st December 2011 to 2nd January 2012 while ASN transaction will be suspended from 27th December 2011 to 2nd January 2012.
Based on history, ASB dividend will be declared in between 14th to 19th December while ASN dividend will be declared around 23rd to 24th December.
What is your expected ASB & ASN dividend for year 2011?
Meanwhile, you may want to take a look at the historical dividend rate for both ASB & ASN and the comparison between ASNB funds.
ASB dividend & bonus for 2011 was announced on 19th December 2011. Look here for details.
I bet ASB/ASN dividen would be slightly higher than 2010 due to the impending general election.
hopefully so, but there are (always) ways and means to bring it down as it’s not a ‘controlled item’ – bye.
& what’s that gotta do with asb/n dividend? if it’s higher, it is bcoz the stock mkt is so strong lah…that’s where pnb got money lor..(what lah)
your English so suck.
no lor…. pnb got money from bank negara lor….
Last year’s dividend was 7.5%, plus bonus, so I’m guessing that this year’s dividend will be at or slightly above the same level. How does 7.8% sound? Too optimistic?
So little the return. what happened to the golden asb era of the 90’s? anyway 7.8% sounds realistic for this year, with bonus 1.25-1.3%.
anything less than 8+1.5% they will not get my vote
8%? Unlikely but I shall keep my proverbial fingers crossed.
Aside from the normal yearly dividend and bonus PNB should consider rewarding those loyal investors who have remained with them for more than 2 decades.
We have not seen double digit dividend+bonus for a long time so PNB if the ROI in 2011 is high pleae share it with investors.
Investors should not allow ASB or KWSP to exploit rakyat MONEY without a return of min 8 % to the investors or else we change the “BEARING”.
