OCBC has a dividend of  $0.20, XD 15/08.
UOB, $0.50 XD 14/08

to get the dividends, sell only on XD. Selling during CD will not have dividends.

Starhub is almost 10 years low, with an attractive dividend yield of close to 9%., Also there is a change of CEO. I think this is something to consider and worth observing. Personally, I'm waiting for the 4th telco to come into play first.

my 2 cents. feel free to share too.
