Questions from Shareholders
Most questions are regarding Covid-19 impact to Maybank performance & its dividend policy.
Maybank CEO explained that it is hard for Maybank to gauge the impact but the dividend policy remains around 60% of net profit.
Shareholders also ask whether Maybank gives any goodies for online AGM as physical AGM, Maybank provides goodies.
Maybank CEO informed that Maybank will bank in RM50 to every shareholders who attended the 60th AGM to their MAE e-wallet.
Good insight on Maybank performance on the meeting and Maybank plans to do more digital solutions moving forward to mitigate Covid-19 impact.
A bit sleepy though this online AGM as you need to be in front of computer for hours.
Warren Buffet is well known investors. He is the most successful investor in the world. He has a net worth of USD70.5 billion as of April 2020. He is chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway.
For Malaysian, to ride on directly Warren success by buying his company shares or his invested companies, it is not straight forward as we need to open up a brokerage account that have access to US market and need bigger fund vs invest in Bursa Malaysia.
If you are smaller investor like me and still prefer investing in Malaysia, maybe the companies industry he invests in can be our guidelines which industry we should focus on.
List of Industries That Warren Buffet Invested In
Banks or Financial Institution
Bank of America
US Bank Corp
Procter & Gamble
The Travelers Companies
Johnson & Johnson
Oil & Gas
Quotes from Warren Regarding Companies That He Invests in
Startups are not our game. (Many of Berkshire Hathaway’s largest holdings are well over a century old; American Express, Wells Fargo, Procter & Gamble, and Coca-Cola were started in 1850, 1852, 1837, and 1886, respectively
Recently, I bought shares using Maybank Stocks Online Trading Platform. After purchasing the shares, I didn’t know how to pay for my purchases.
When I googled, I coudn’t find any useful help or information on how to make payment of my outstanding purchases. At the end, I had to make a call to Maybank call centre and get help.
According to Maybank, I must contact my stocks dealer to settle the payment via Maybank2u and my stock dealer informed me step by step on how to do it.
Before follow my steps, better call your dealer first. If you don’t know or remember your dealer phone number, you can contact Maybank help line (03 2297 8888) and they will provide you the dealer name and contact.
Steps to make payment on Outstanding Purchases
Login to Maybank2u
Select Pay & Transfer
Select New Payment
Select Maybank Investment Bank Berhad
Enter your trading account number in “Trading Acct. No.”
Enter your “Bill Reference No.”. Fill in:-
TRUST – you will be transferring your money in Maybank Investment Bank account. (your trust account will be tagged with your trading account)
Inform your dealer and share the receipt.
Remember to check that your Outstanding Purchase is cleared after the payment.
CIMB has the highest dividend yield but low ROE and whether the dividend yield is sustainable in the long run.
Maybank has 7.23% dividend yield which is commendable with ROE of 10% but with higher than average PE.
Ambank has 6.33% dividend yield with PE of 6.13 which is below average which is good and above average ROE.
Public Bank has highest ROE of 12.64 means it is very efficiency in using its capital vs other banks but it has very low dividend yield.
Based on the numbers, without evaluating its long term business, I would buy Ambank it has 6.33% dividend and take only 6 years to recover the capital.
However on safe side, it is better to buy Maybank shares as it is innovative in digital area for example first to introduce online banking and digital payment which I think is the new disruption in banking sector.
