Hello everyone. I’m @olivertomolife and I love investing and shareholder special offers!
There are some Japanese companies that have been raising their dividends for a long time, and KDDI is one of them.
KDDI is one of them. The company has been raising its dividend for 19 years in a row, and is planning to do so in fiscal 2021.
It is attractive because its performance is linked to its dividend, but the share price is high…
So I’ve been thinking about when to buy!
I have three years of investment experience and have experience in the securities industry.
By reading this article, you’ll learn about KDDI, it’s buy time, and the company!
- What is KDDI’s buying opportunity and what are the three scenarios?
- Changes in KDDI’s stock price
- Dividend Trends
- Investment trusts to include
- About KDDI
- The company’s business
- KDDI also offers special benefits to shareholders

What is KDDI’s buying opportunity and what are the three scenarios?
KDDI’s stock price has been rising recently, but many people may find it difficult to know when to buy.
I will discuss the three scenarios I consider, assuming long-term investment.
Please choose the one that best suits your personality in each.
1 Buying at the right time
The company is at a high place in terms of stock price, but its business performance is stable and we expect the stock price to rise in the future.
Since the company is proactive in returning profits to shareholders, it is highly trusted by individual investors.
Although the price may go down in the short term, I think it will recover.
2 Wait for a price drop
Until the global outbreak of infectious diseases is under control, the future remains uncertain.
Therefore, there may be a major stock price crash in the future.
There is a way to wait for that period and buy.
However, it is difficult to predict clearly when the stock price will fall significantly, so the degree of difficulty will be high.
3 Wait for a stock split
KDDI has conducted stock splits in the past in 2012, 2013, and 2015.
A stock split means a reduction in the investment amount by splitting the stock price.
For example, if a 1,000 yen stock is split at a ratio of 1:2, the price will be 500 yen, making it easier to invest.
Since we have not had a stock split in the last six years, there is a possibility that we will have a stock split in the future.
After a stock split, the stock price becomes cheaper, so it is a good idea to buy at that time.
Changes in KDDI’s stock price
Over the past 10 years, KDDI’s stock price started to rise in 2013, moving in a range of 2,000 yen to 3,500 yen.
However, in 2021, the price has crossed the 3500 yen barrier and has been moving between 3600 yen and 3700 yen.
Personally, I think the stock price has reached a turning point, and I am bullish on the market.
The dividend has been increased continuously since 2002, and in fiscal year 2019, the dividend was increased by 10 yen compared to the previous year.
In fiscal year 2019, the dividend was increased by 10 yen compared to the previous year.
In fiscal year 2020 and 2021, the dividend is expected to be increased by 5 yen, so we can expect more dividend increases in the future.
Investment trusts to include
If you are just starting to invest, you may be afraid to buy stocks from the beginning.
That’s where I would like to recommend investment trusts!
You can start with a small amount of money, so even beginners can start without worry.
Here are some of the investment trusts I recommend, for your reference!
Nissay Asset Management Nissay Japan Equity Fund
Nikko Asset Management Index Fund 225
Sumitomo Mitsui DS Asset Management Sumitomo Mitsui Japan Equity Open
KDDI was established in 2000 through the merger of telecommunication companies DDI, KDD, and IDO.
It is recognized as a competitor of NTT, but the background of KDDI is that it was separated from Telegraph Corporation during the state-run era.
In addition to Japan, KDDI is expanding its business to the United States, Europe, and Asia.
The company’s business
There are three major business segments, which I will introduce in order.
1 Personal segment
The company provides communication services such as smartphones to individual customers.
In the future, we aim to utilize our communication services to integrate finance and entertainment.
The number of users is increasing as the communication speed is improving year by year.
2 Business Segment
Network and data issues are essential for business, and KDDI provides services that solve them all at once.
Since it has a partnership with the world-famous Toyota Motor Corporation, it will be able to make a significant contribution in terms of next-generation communications.
We are also supporting the creation of local communities, such as those with declining populations, and we are supporting the public and private sectors.
We are in the business of supporting businesses outside Japan, and have more than 100 offices in 62 cities overseas.
We are working to support companies doing business on a global scale under the Telehouse brand.
Because of our high reputation and track record, our services are used by many companies.
KDDI also offers special benefits to shareholders
KDDI offers a shareholder special benefit plan, which is offered once every year.
The details are summarized in the table below.
|Number of shares vested||Number of years held||Benefit details|
|March 31 of each year||100 shares or more but less than 1000 shares||Less than 5 years 3000 yen equivalent|
Over 5 years 5000 yen equivalent
|More than 1000 shares||less than 5 years 5,000 yen equivalent|
Over 5 years 10000 yen equivalent
It’s nice to know that the rank of benefits increases with long-term holdings!
KDDI is a company that many investors pay attention to, but in the past, it did not attract much attention.
However, its stock price has risen as a result of revisions made in its business.
It is a company that I would like to keep an eye on for future business.
Their shareholder benefits are gorgeous, and I’ll be introducing them in the future!
- KDDI’s stock price is at a turning point.
- Beginners can buy investment trusts.
- A company with future potential
I’ve summarized KDDI’s buying opportunities and the company!
Investing is a personal responsibility. Make your own final decision after referring to various opinions.
I will continue to introduce Japanese companies in the future, so please stay tuned.
