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.
