How do Mutual Fund manage to pay huge dividends ?

Post by vishwas.tp on Mon Mar 03 2008, 23:27

In recent times I had put some serious thinking into "How do Mutual Fund manage to pay huge dividends?

For example:SBI Magnum Tax Gain on Feb 15th 2008 paid Rs.11/unit as dividend. The Unit price over a period of 1 year (March 07 March 08) would average around Rs.55 and if we take Satyam computers as an example it gives around Rs.16-20 rupees as dividend per share priced around Rs.450. So SBI Tax gain is generating Rs.1 for every Rs.5 invested while Satyam is generating Rs.1 for every Rs.22.5 (450/20) .

So what is the MF house approach?

1. Are MF dividends exactly the amount what MF portfolio generates as dividends? Or
2. Are MF houses constantly book profit like a "Daily traders" and pay the income generated from this to the unit holders as dividends?

Just put your view on this.

I feel Fund Managers take full advantages of Market Volatility. They'll usually have several inside information and will be able to act before retail investor gets the news.

It is just giving cash back to customer. May not necessarily be money earned from dividends.

Paying dividend is about :
* Positioning of the product.
Some people need some cash time to time, though alternate is to encash their fund partially.

* Marketing poly
Inviting people to invest before Dividend payout in disguise that it is good to invest just before divident payout.

* Some time earlier dividend stripping was tax friendly, people preferred divident reinvestment option.

In the MF market While crop funds are increasingly becoming popular among investors, some of the conservative market experts fear a deep credit squeeze or a string of payment defaults could result in loss of investments.i wonder how true that fear is?

Currently fund houses like Templeton, DWS, Reliance Mutual, Religare Mutual and Kotak Mutual Fund have crop funds with varying investment styles and structures.

Reliance Regular Savings Equity is a multicap fund It is a combination of both large caps as well as mid cap stocks.

The risk is probably much more higher but since if you decide to invest
in multi caps as an investor you are assured of having some options
that will perform well in just about any market condition.

So i will advice you to go for it!

This mutual fund got into the top ten with a fifteen and a half percent annual growth. The fund focuses on China, which makes it somewhat riskier at times, but it has seen some high dividend yields. This last 12 months have been good for this fund.
