Agree. RHB maintained its DPS at 40sen from FY21 to FY23. On adjusted basis, dividend per share has actually grown.

However, many factors are also at play besides the dilution effect. The most important being the economic environment of pre-Covid (FY21) and post-Covid (FY23) greatly affect earnings outlook and dividend decisions.

For comparison, during the same period of FY21-FY23, Maybank, which also has DRIP (but stopped in 2023), DPS increased from 58sen to 60sen.

Hong Leong Bank, which do not offer DRIP, DPS increased from 50sen in FY21 to 59sen in FY23 (its YE is mid-year).

Anyway, as I mentioned in RHB forum before, shareholders who hold RHB mainly for its high dividend yield should be happy with the continuous 40sen DPS for the last 3 years. Just don’t look at or compare the share price with other banks.

As for shareholders who aim for total return, it’s important to watch multiple metrics besides dividends, and that becomes not so simple. Shareholders have opted for higher dividends for growth (which underpins share price appreciation).

There is a common yardstick on whether RHB has put its retained shareholder capital to good use. It’s whether it earns above its cost of equity (or cost of tangible equity to be more precise).

My rule of thumb for companies like RHB is COE at 10%. (For comparison, Hong Leong analyst put it at 10.9%).

During FY21, 22 and 23, RHB published net return on average equity was 9.6%, 9.6% and 9.5% respectively, slightly below bar.

Under TWP24, RHB aimed for 11.5% ROE by 2024. It’s probably a tall order as 1Q24 ROE was only 9.2%.

"Yes. Share Buy Back is equivalent to Dividend Payment."
Weird, weird, weird. You got RHB Bank shares at a big discount and without having to come out a single sen and you don't consider it as a dividend payment. Haven't your additional RHB Bank shares increased the amount of your share portfolio? You got something. What do you get if a company buys back its own shares? Nothing! If share buy back can support a company's share price, it is ok. Top Glove started share buy backs when its share price was way above RM7. It is exactly the opposite of what you claimed.

I have nothing more to add on the dividend yield debate.

Prudent you’re right to point out there is a caveat on share buyback. When a company buys back its shares at a price above its intrinsic value, it destroys shareholder value. Top Glove’s folly has made share buyback a dirty word in Malaysia. Now every management in Malaysia would cite Top Glove as the reason why they don’t want to buy back their shares when they are hoarding cash and share price is depressed.

However, if the company buys below intrinsic value, remaining shareholders actually benefit. As the share base is shrunk, the earnings per share is boosted, making the remaining share more valuable. It’s the reverse of dilution effect. The slice of the cake gets bigger through buyback at below intrinsic value.

That’s why Berkshire Hathaway buys back its share too, but only when Warren Buffett believes the share price is value for money.

In the AutoZone example I cited where it bought back 84% of shares over 25 years, share price rose from $22 to $2,500.

1) ESOS is negative Dividend.
2) Private Placement is also negative Dividend.
3) Right Issue is also negative Dividend.

4) Share Buy Back:
4a) A positive Dividend at the time of buying.
4b) No effect when the company cancel the treasury shares.
4c) It is negative Dividend when the company sell the treasury shares back into the market.
4d) It is bonus units when company distribute treasury share as "share dividend".

"1) ESOS is negative Dividend.
2) Private Placement is also negative Dividend.
3) Right Issue is also negative Dividend."
1) ESOS is a kind of incentive. It encourages employees to work harder for their company and hence bring in more profit. Maybank implemented two ESOS over the last three years. It total dividend for 2023 had actually been increased to 60 sen share.
2) In a bear market, small investors may not be willing to cough out money to subscribe for new shares. Cash strapped companies thus have to enlist the help of institutions to buy up new shares at a discount. Which do you think is better - allowing the company you have invested to go bankrupt or bring in substantial shareholders who might help the company to survive?
3)Rights shares are always priced at a discount to market price. Companies requiring additional working capital for expansion would normally call for rights issues rather than borrowing money from the banks. . Why does Maybank make much, much more money than RHB Bank? Maybe you prefer the companies you have invested in to remain small forever.
You are shortsighted!

Seriously though...is there such a thing as 'negative dividends'????? I've noticed that 95% of Malaysians and Singaporeans are incapable of admitting they ever get anything wrong in online debates. They just double down, refusing to answer direct questions and moving on to the next point. If, and when, finally cornered, it descends into name calling. What's it in our psyche that makes it impossible to say 'hmmm ok I might have got that point wrong, but I was kinda concerned that it might lead to share dilution, care to share your opinion on that?' ....

Good question. Similarly, how about ‘positive Dividend’?
When Dividend goes ex, the share price drops by the same amount, is it positive or negative??
IMHO, it is just a ‘Zero's exercise, any profit made is declared as Dividend and given out to shareholders with $ deducted from cash flow ‘reserve’.
Dividend Yield (DY) is just a ‘barometer’ indicating Price vs Dividend i.e. fluctuation Price increase or decrease vs a declared fixed Dividend for the period.
For example, if a company gives out a 1 for 1 bonus issue, the share price will be adjusted by half, how will the DY ratio be at that particular moment??
From Wikipedia, “The dividend yield or dividend–price ratio of a share is the dividend per share divided by the price per share. It is also a company's total annual dividend payments divided by its market capitalization, assuming the number of shares is constant. It is often expressed as a percentage”, therefore DY calculation will be adjusted with respect to the right moment ‘the number of Shares is constant’ bear in mind the Shareholders holding shares also increased correspondingly…
So a dilution will be perceived as a ‘negative Dividend Yield’ ??

@BLee : just my humble opinion but I think you are also confusing bonus issues with DY. Share options, Bonus issues, Dividends...all these are just different instruments which companies use to reward their shareholders and they all mean different things. Dividends are cash payouts (in cases with DRP it will state dividends with options for DRP, this just means u will get dividends with an 'option' to turn a small percentage of it into reinvested shares).

Bonus issues are where additional shares are given instead of cash. google will tell u the circumstances where companies prefer to use this to reward shareholders instead of cash dividends.

Both of the above + share options will affect the share price to reflect the changes after the exercise.

'For example, if a company gives out a 1 for 1 bonus issue, the share price will be adjusted by half, how will the DY ratio be at that particular moment??'

There will be no dividend ratio because the company did not issue any dividends. Try this simple method to verify my assertion. Google Tesla or Amazon dividend yield, it will say 0. Why? Because these companies have NEVER issued dividends before. They use other ways to reward their investors...share options, bonus issues..ESOS. But all of u will agree that these are TOP 500 companies in the world...so I think u will agree with me they are well run. So are they positive dividends company? No, they are 0 dividends company. Because dividends are not negative or positive, they are just a metric to tell us whether the company has a habit of rewarding it's investors thru cash payouts. Simple as that.

Dividend is only one of the criteria in stock selection. Stock with no ESOS, no private placement, no right issue and pay 5-7% dividend can also be a trap. Take BAT as example.

Very very very very very true. Another example is Taliworks. Every year for the past don't know how many years always give out 0.0165 dividends....DY around 7%...so attractive that it's listed as one of the top dividend stock in Malaysia. But it was paying out in dividends more than it's annual earnings, this meant that dividends were eating into it's cash reserves. That's why finally it cannot tahan and share price start to drop, then now dividends drop to 0.01 every quarter. So dividends is just cash payout....you have to look at other metrics, I agree 100% with invest8912.

Yes, it is just a different instrument; but NOSH is used in DY calculation. As mentioned earlier, it is just a barometer to compare companies given out Dividend; it is irrelevant for companies that don't. I have purposely changed the question to DY as I personally feel DY is good to compare with FD rate; but unlike to compare Dividend per Share of each stocks as it will be a different yardstick.
In the formula, NOSH changes can affect the DY value quite substantially vs earlier declared Dividend; therefore just to caution also to view any Bonus, Rights, PP and even ESOS issues to take DY as a comparison…just my thoughts.
Happy investing and for sharing purpose only.

Your question was 'For example, if a company gives out a 1 for 1 bonus issue, the share price will be adjusted by half, how will the DY ratio be at that particular moment??'

The company didn't give out a dividend that year, so how can you calculate the DY? It doesn't matter if the company has never given out dividends forever or 1 year or 2 years, if in that year it only gave out bonus issues, there is no dividend 'ratio' to be calculated. You have answered your own question, it's irrelevant.

1) In Malaysia, we are no longer taxed on the dividends we receive, which I consider a good thing. I prefer to have the money in my bank, instead of it being merely reflected as a paper gain in the company’s accounts.

2) Companies that pay dividends tend to be mature companies that probably do not have innovative ideas to invest their excess money. By paying out dividends, they reduce their equity and thus maintain a high return on equity (ROE). ROE measures how effectively a company uses its cash to generate revenue and income.

3) The key number to look at for dividend-paying companies is the payout ratio. For example, RHB's payout ratio is 61% this year, which isn't great but is acceptable. In comparison, HLB and PB have much lower payout ratios.

“snowball88
….Maybe you give an example to prove your assertion?”

It is a bit difficult to gather live data for DY value before and after any corporate Price/NOSH changes; but can try to illustrate by capturing some examples for the next few market days…
Example: RGT Berhad
Date: 16 June 2024
EPS: RM0.0028, DPS: RM0.018
Capital: 328mil, NOSH: 352mil, DY: 1.94
Source: klsescreener.com

If we look-up at another source: xxxxxwall.st/stocks/my/materials/klse-rgtbhd/rgt-berhad-shares/dividend (website Link deleted due to Fail to submit)

Date: 18 June 2024
Dividend per share: RM0.036, DY: 3.9
Earning per share: RM0.0029

Why the disparity? IMHO, different data has been used at different timing for the calculation. Below statement could be one of the reason:
“Trailing dividend yield gives the dividend percentage paid over a prior period, typically one year. A trailing twelve month dividend yield, denoted as "TTM", includes all dividends paid during the past year in order to calculate the dividend yield.”
Source: Wikipedia
As in the example given, RGT Consolidated 1:3 Ex on the 7 June 2024, the price adjusted from 0.305 to over 0.9.
I believed the DY value also adjusted (or will adjust later due to TTM) accordingly due to the price changes and DPS. If this DY used to compare with others counter DY for investment purposes, it can lead to misjudgement…
Next changes will happen on 25 June 2024, with a 1:5 bonus issue of warrants. I don't think the price will change much as the Adjustment of price will be very minimum for Warrant if any.
I am still learning and above write-up also for my own stocks selection criteria/caution; therefore Happy Trading and TradeAtYourOwnRisk.

Dividend Yield (DY) calculation depends on Dividend per share (DPS). If NOSH increased with the same quantum amount $ paid out as Dividend, the DPS will reduce in future Dividend payout. Therefore the highlighted previous statement ‘assuming the number of shares is constant’, implied NOSH is important in DY calculation.
During Bonus issue or Share Consolidation, the declared DPS for the last 12 months used in calculation did not take this increase or decrease NOSH into consideration. The share price will decrease for the Bonus issue, and will increase the DY value during ex. The opposite for Share Consolidation. This DY calculation will cause misleading info for comparison of counters DY vs Bank FD rates. To get a more accurate DY calculation, make sure no increase or decrease NOSH for the last 12 months as indicated above.

Ahhh...now I understand where the confusion comes from....

"Dividend Yield (DY) calculation depends on Dividend per share (DPS). If NOSH increased with the same quantum amount $ paid out as Dividend, the DPS will reduce in future"

Let's assume in 2023, company A has 10000 shares valued at RM1 (market capitalisation is RM10,000), makes RM1000 a year and gives out 100% in 31st Dec (all RM1000 given out) of it's profits in dividends. Dividend yield is DPS (RM0.10) divided by current market price of RM1 per share (google it, and I think this is where your mistake is) giving a dividend yield of 10%. At the same time it conducts a bonus issue of 1:1 (1 share will get 1 bonus share).

On 01 Jan 2024 it's NOSH doubles to 20000, share price falls accordingly to RM0.50 per share. Assuming all the 'quantum' remains the same, it makes the same RM1000 profit, distributes all RM1000....so DPS drops to RM0.05 per share (as you correctly mentioned DPS drops).... but dividend yield which is RM0.05 divided by current market share of RM0.50 means you get the same dividend yield of 10%!!!!!!!!!

"If NOSH increased with the same quantum amount $ paid out as Dividend, the DPS will reduce in future Dividend payout. Therefore the highlighted previous statement ‘assuming the number of shares is constant’, implied NOSH is important in DY calculation." As we can see, not true. DPS is DPS, DY is DY. They are two completely different things and their relationship is not necessarily directly proportional to one another.

"During Bonus issue or Share Consolidation, the declared DPS for the last 12 months used in calculation did not take this increase or decrease NOSH into consideration. The share price will decrease for the Bonus issue, and will increase the DY value during ex. The opposite for Share Consolidation. This DY calculation will cause misleading info for comparison of counters DY vs Bank FD rates. "

As we can see, it will not. Misleading info is only caused by misunderstanding of the ratios, and the calculation of the rations.

To better understand these mechanisms, such as bonus issue, dividends and DRP...it's better not to automatically assume that anything that dilutes our shares is bad. They are just trying to find different ways to reward their investors in a way that's also good for the company. As Thirai Thiraviam said, some investors prefer to 'cash out' their profits, some prefer to leave it with the company for a chance of better growth (these will be those that invest in Tesla and Amazon). Some prefer a bit of both...think of RHB's DRP as providing you with more options on your options. They do a dividend payout of 60% (comparable to other banks) yet give you an option to give them a bit more 3-5% to reinvest if you opt for the shares (at a reduced price). Just more choices.

“snowball88

You are absolutely correct in an ideal calculation. Only problem is the RM0.05 DPS declared 12 months later; and the current calculation on corporate activity using past DPS figures. In your example given, the DY calculated after Bonus Ex will be RM0.1 divided by Rm0.5 equal to 20% (assume post Dividend payout recovered back to RM0.5). For someone looking up a few counters to compare DY %, it will be a misjudge. Therefore the “A trailing twelve month dividend yield, denoted as "TTM", includes all dividends paid during the past year in order to calculate the dividend yield” and any corporate exercise must be considered for the comparison…

Yes bonus shares issued 01 Jan 2024, share price drop to RM0.5 after issue, Total dividends paid out for 01 Jan - 31 Dec 2024 is RM1000 (12 months profit of RM1000 distributed to 20000 shares), all clearly stated in my example, DPS for 2024 is 0.05, NOT 0.1. Therefore DY is still 10%. You need for the formula for calculating DPS also??

If you understand and have confidence in that company, DY is not important at all.
But to people like the person who called me little boy and said I failed my Mathematics,
He pay much attention to DY, end up his investment in RHB is much more than his Maybank.
He would have made more money if he has invested equal amount in RHB and Maybank.

I view DRIP negatively.
1) If the company want to pay out 31.5 sen, let pay 31.5 sen Cash, no need to pay 30 sen Cash + 10 sen DRIP. DRIP serve no purpose except it is painting a fake picture of high DY.
2) DRIP come with a significant cost to the very small investors, stamp duty, service charge and odd lot etc.

For my own case, I own 100,000 units RHB before this round of dividend. I do not like odd lot, so I opted only 2,000 units, which make my DRIP take up rate of 97.6%, but it is still much higher than the average ~85% take up rate, the RM15.00 stamp duty and service charge by BoardRoom is very minimal for my 2,000 units DRIP, but for the very small investor, the cost of RM15 is big in term of percentage, better off to opt for Cash.

As mentioned earlier, you are absolutely correct for calculation after 31 Dec 2024. What data to use in between for DY (TTM) calculation?

Time is an essence for interest and DY calculation; therefore trailing twelve months (TTM) is needed for any comparison. In your example, the extra Bonus 10000 is not entitled for DY calculation until after the next Dividend declaration which in your example after 31 Dec 2024.
No offense intended and just an example; if you intend to have a baby tonight and do it, it is a miracle tonight you get the baby, you still need to wait 9 months later..same as $ put in Bank, you have to wait for maturity to calculate actual DY. Happy discussion.

“snowball88 > Before we go further down the never-ending rabbit hole, can you clear this up for me first?..How did you get to the 20% DY??...can u specify the timeframe..”

Very simple, as in your example, we already have RM10k invested at RM1 having paid RM0.1 Dividend. Before the next Dividend announcement, the price dropped to RM0.5 due to Bonus issue 1:1. The Bonus issue is NOT entitled for the Dividend of RM0.1 paid; NOT entitled for DY (TTM) calculation the day after ex-bonus. As shown previously for RGT DY calculation from 2 different websites, there is disparity for DY calculated. I am just trying to figure out how this disparity will affect investment decisions vs FD rates..
To answer both your questions, DY was calculated initially at RM1 of 10% and this adjusted to 20% assuming price half ignoring ‘the fresh Bonus fund’. ‘The fresh Bonus fund’ will normalize upon the next Dividend entitlement (your correct calculation); therefore the timeframe is in between ex-bonus to the next Declare Dividend. Hope that answers your question.

another dimension is to look at the broader underlyings:

ii) real ROE ( ROE / PB ratio)

i) should reconcile with ii)

thirdly, the iii) dividend payout ratio %

dividend yield usually = iii) * i) or ii)

You have changed the parameters of my example... I already stated dividends issued first, then on 01 Jan 2024 executed a bonus issue. You changed it to bonus issue first, then dividends. And even if u did that, the DY will still be 10%, because the new Dividends per share will be RM0.05 divided by the new price of RM0.50. Not so simple indeed.

LOL, I didn't change anything. It is convention to calculate ‘Trailing Twelve Month (TTM) Dividend’, cast in stone, Bonus issue or any corporate issues sandwiched between two Dividends declaration. The first one DID NOT include in the corporate changes consideration (different NOSH) DY calculation, the second declaration will be catered in the Trailing Twelve Months calculation (combined NOSH). The forward Dividend could be Zero, the DY then could be Zero; NOT 10% or 20%..
