Sorry I am confused with this article:How to handle Scrip dividends (or re-invested dividends) properly?
on this sentence: Price Paid/Received = Total amount that you would receive if you have chosen cash / Shares you will receive
So let’s say I have 5,000 shares of MIT; and I subscribed to Mapletree Industrial Trust’s script dividend.
DPU for that quarter: $0.0137
script Issue price: S$2.0193
So my total script, rounded down, will be 5000*0.0137/2.0193= 33 shares.
(ok i got 32 shares coz they treat 0.0112, 0.0012,0.0013 as three separate components and all rounded down)
So can you advice, for price paid/price received, what should I key in?
