Armour Residential REIT (ARR) dividends

Received a cheque for November's dividends from Armour Residential REIT (ARR).  Total dividends was  S$45.89 after accounting for 30% withholding tax as well as handling and GST charges. ARR has been paying me monthly dividends ever since I bought it.  However, the stock has been quite volatile at times.

  1. hi,
    I chanced upon your blog and this monthly divident paying stock really opened my eyes as I was not aware there are such stocks. Thank you!!

    I looked around and also notice similar ones, particularly PSEC, which is a BDC. Have you considered PSEC before? I would like to know what are your views on it if you have time to share

    As you mentioned, these high monthly dividend paying counters are quite volatile in prices, which is the risk, but other than that, what risks are there? It sounds too good to be true somehow :)


    thanks!!

  2. Hi,

    ARR is a mortgage reit. There are risks when interests rates change. The high yield essentially translates to high risk. Dividends have also been cut recently.

    There are many other stocks that pay monthly dividends. And no, I have not looked at PSEC before. Will take a look at it when I have time.

  3. Thank you for the read. Honestly you covered the topic and broadly examined all areas. If i was to write this i would have done a few things differently myself but you have definitely inspired me to get into the world of blogging.
