Dividend Yield: 4.4%

Food Empire Holdings, while trading at 66.3% below its estimated fair value, presents a mixed outlook for dividend investors due to its unstable dividend history over the past decade and a relatively low yield of 4.39% compared to the top quartile in Singapore's market at 6.29%.
