Dividends Override was introduced to SGXcafe during the time when one account can hold only one portfolio. Soon after, I introduced the support for
Multiple Portfolios in SGXcafe. However, Dividends Override was not updated to support Multiple Portfolios. This mistake potentially caused some mistakes in computing the total dividends you have collected if you happen to hold the same stock in different portfolios.
I have already fixed this bug and each override will be assigned to a specific portfolio from now on. All current Dividends Override have been by default assigned to the "default" portfolio, so if you currently have Dividends Override and do not want it to be assigned to the "default" portfolio, please update them to the correct portfolio
here. My apologies for this bug, and please let me know if you need more support regarding this issue. I also appreciate user
jonong for alerting me to it.
At the same time, I also took the chance to make several improvements related to Dividends.
1) Now, if you filter by stock in the
Dividends Collected tab, you can see a yearly summary of Dividends received for that particular stock.
2) In the
Portfolio Report, you can now see the breakdown of the projected dividends.
3) You can now also filter all sub-tabs under
Portfolio Dividends by a particular portfolio.
I would like to thank all users for reporting bugs and requesting features. SGXcafe is better because of you :)
- Hi Evan, It really is good to see you reacting and modifying the site from comments received. SGXcafe is becoming one of the best investing sites on the net. Great work !

Naturally, I am curious to know how I will be able to retire. More specifically, how much do I need to invest annually? What rate of return do I need? When I can retire? To answer these questions, I decided to build a simple simulator. Basically, it assumes ...
Portfolio Sharing 2.0
Initially, the portfolio sharing feature was added with the intention to allow SGXcafe users to easily share their portfolios on their own blogs as I saw many financial bloggers in Singapore sharing their well-crafted portfolios but in a technically-inefficient way (e.g. copy and paste from excel sheet to html). Interestingly, this feature is gaining popularity in SGXcafe itself, especially after the ...
How "unlucky" can you get from investing?
Investing in the stock market is often deemed as risky and difficult by many. Here, I would show how a simple strategy would perform for a someone who does not know much about the stock market and is very unlucky when it comes to investing. Firstly, for someone without much knowledge in investing, index investing is ideal because it gives good diversification with just one stock. Also, rather than ...
