I was interested in the stock and thought 12%, must have a gander at that.
Taking into account @big-g’s comment about the frequency of the dividend it is correct to then say that you need about 133 shares if you want to buy one new share each quarter. And so @J4ipod94’s 6K number makes sense on a quarterly basis.
Thank you everyone who as joined this conversation and given me advice, given me some pointers and figures. I am very new to investing as you possibly guess, I have today invested into this vanguard stock and bought 134 shares in the hope of buying another 20 shares with the dividend payments over 5 years, then I can sell, hopefully at a good profit, who knows.
Thanks to all
Wish you all the best @soulie1!
Threads like this why I love this place!
Good luck @soulie1 and if you have any spare cash investing little and often if one of the best ways of building wealth
@soulie1 one thing that you need to watch out for is that this ETF will change in value (e.g. increase in value) and the dividend pay out may or may not. The key point is that if you do dividend reinvestment then you may need to put more money quarterly as the dividend may not cover the purchase of new stock. IMO the accumulating version is better for people like yourself who have decided to reinvest dividends. I have made a request for the ETF to be added to Freetrade’s universe
Vanguard FTSE All-World High Dividend Yield UCITS ETF VHYG
Feel free to vote for it it there if you would like the option.
Thank you so much for this information, I have voted, it is in the hands of the gods. I will just keep an eye on my dividends…
Anyone got their dividends yet for this and VUSA?
Pay date was 30th March.
No yet still waiting
I got a few vanguard payments today, not VUSA, so they’re en route I’d imagine.
VHYG … the Accumulating ETF you were looking for, a while ago, is now on Freetrade
Thank you, thanks for remembering our conversation. VHYG cannot find on FT, but the original investment VHYL is doing quite well, held this investment now for a fourth dividend
I said in the last conversation that I would add twenty shares over five years, I have worked it out that I will be adding twenty five more shares over five years, the holding is acting/looking good.
You are right. My apologies - it seems that Freetrade has incorrectly changed the VHYG ETF stock request to a stock discussion. Perhaps they did it in advance in the expectation that it would become live shortly. Let us see or else I will have to revert their changes to the forum request.
Superb! It is good to know that your investment is doing well.
@soulie1 Ok we have some news. As I suspected the change was made to herald the imminent availability of VHYG: Vanguard FTSE All-World High Dividend Yield UCITS ETF (Acc) - VHYG - Share chat - #8 by EmilieGauthier.
If you are still interested then look for it in a few days time.
Bought in at £46 November 2021, hovering around £49 September 2022, plus four dividends
Yup $VHYG really is available now: Vanguard FTSE All-World High Dividend Yield UCITS ETF (Acc) - VHYG - Share chat - #10 by EmilieGauthier
Thank you for letting me know, I did notice it is here via the list of etf’s added by FT. I have to hold back on taking new positions as I want to bolster my present portfolio. I own 139 shares of vhyl and that is doing quite good for me and it is paying a decent quarterly divided.
Assume ive just recieved my divident wouldnt know because they send the details way after it actually gets put into account
