Hi Wei Keong,
Since you are already vested in the company, I assume you’ve done thorough homework and the company is sound to hold for the long-term. So now… You have the option to receive cash or scrip dividend. Which one to choose?
The answer depend on two things:

  1. Do you need the cash immediately for something else? If not, you have the option to add-on existing stake without incurring any brokerage charges. Otherwise, take the cash since you needed them.
  2. Is the company remain undervalued when scrip dividend announced at the stated price? If not, take the cash and redeploy the cash yourself. Otherwise, you can re-invest the money after considering your overall portfolio. 

I hope my explanation is clear enough. If not, feel free to clarify with me :)
