Default Passive Income

Do you make any passive income? Does it exceed the salary from your regular job?

Examples of passive income sources include: rental, investment dividends, book royalties, website advertisements, self-running web businesses, revenue from software products such as iphone apps, other self-running businesses, etc.

3k per month? that means 36k pa.

36k / 0.0685 = $526k

if you invest in a high-yield stock like Starhub. other stocks may need more. some stocks don't usually give out dividends, like Apple.

The calculation is correct, but not recommended to put all money in Starhub as their dividend is higher than profit, so their dividend is not really dividend but giving out principle as well.

Spread out risk usually yield is ~4.5%. 3k per q will need about 270k.
