UPDATED: ASB 2011 announced! Dividend 7.65%, Bonus 1.15%! Read more HERE!
It’s almost new year. The most-awaited announcement of the year is the ASB dividend and bonus for the year 2011.
Let’s see how ASB fared for the past few years:
2005: Dividen: 7.25% Bonus: 1.75% Total: 9.00%
2006: Dividen: 7.30% Bonus: 1.25% Total: 8.55%
2007: Dividen: 8.00% Bonus: 1.00% Total: 9.00%
2008: Dividen: 7.00% Bonus: 1.75% Total: 8.75%
2009: Dividen: 7.30% Bonus: 1.25% Total: 8.55%
2010: Dividen: 7.50% Bonus: 1.25% Total: 8.75%
With elections coming, government claiming to make profits more than loss, improving economy and trade, my prediction is that the total dividend and bonus for ASB for 2011 is at least 9%, might be approaching 10% even. I committed myself to invest in ASB loan, so I am really looking forward to the ASB announcement this year!
Election is so near. With the new pay scheme SBPA, end-year bonus this coming Monday, I do predict that ASB shall fare better than previous years. Oh I love December!
On another note, I am no whore where my vote can be bought so simply by increasing my pay, giving me bonuses and putting more money into my investments. I am still keeping an open mind. Whoever brings the best to the tables, I shall vote. Enough of dirty politicking, accusing you sodomy, you corrupt, you racist, you non-bumiputras, you traitor, you liar, you embezzler, you cow and you etcetera. Money and politics corrupt humans.
Do you know there are doctors in private practice who treat rib fracture with plating? Do you know some orthopedic surgeons receive lots of commissions by using a medical company’s instruments for their surgeries? Even the noblest profession of mankind has whores and corrupts.
All of us are whores and corrupts in some way. Let’s just be civil.
