5 key metrics every dividend investor must track

Tuesday, 28 September 2021  |  12:00pm - 1:00pm AEST Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney  

Keeping track of all your dividends has always been a laborious and manual task. As a self-directed investor, it’s easy to feel anxious and overwhelmed, out of control even. Between your broker and your share registries, working out your real performance is a headache, and there’s an endless avalanche of paperwork to maintain. You know how it goes; your record-keeping spreadsheet is tedious to maintain and more inaccurate with every passing year. The only thing you get out of it is a big bill from the accountant at tax time! In this webinar, Prashant will showcase the 5 key metrics every dividend investor must track. He will explain:

• How to track your total annualised return

• What is dividend yield, and how to track it?

• How to accurately track your dividends reinvestments (DRPs)

• Other important metrics for dividend investors

Hosted by: ASA Director, Peter Rae
