Holy shizzles Batman, I haven’t posted anything in the month of June. Sorry my dear readers but as you might have guessed, life got in the way. I’ve been prioritising my family and my work above my blog and commenting on your blogs. To me it makes sense, hopefully for you as well otherwise you might have some re-evaluating to do.
If I look at my blog stats the dip is noticable as is the absence of some of my blogosphere companions. Its only natural I guess, no commenting on other blogs equals no comments on my blog. Quid pro Quo as discussed before.
Even though my blogpost count didn’t go higher I have been quite busy on the buying end as well, wielding massive capital lately from my tax returns, work bonus and holiday allowance. So expect to see some major improvements in my dividend income.
I will show my results of May and June together in one post so I will be back on track for my July report in August.
My results for May 2019:
Highest dividend income ever baby! And for a special reason -> KBT you might wonder? Well I wondered too! I had no idea what happened here only that for some reason I got payed extra! A first for me 🙂
After discussing with my broker and some online digging I noticed that VFC had spinoff their Denim business into a new standalone company Kontoor Brands. Apparantly I did not have a large enough position to earn me 1 share of KBT so I got payed an extra sum to compensate the “loss” of value of VFC. NICE! 🙂
So now the visuals for May:
Halfway to my dividend goal of the year and its only May! 🙂
And now for my June results:
Technically this is my highest dividend month ever since last month I received an extra payout from VFC. More than €80 a month is just awesome! This month also sees the results of additional investments and my two new positions 3M and WBA paying out for the first time bringing in almost an additional €10.
And ofcourse the visuals:
Total dividend 2019: €406,84
Total dividend received ever: €840,88
And now….the big moment, my YoY-comparison!
June 2018: €22,97
April 2019: €81,95
As always my results are converted from their base currency to euro and are post-tax. I would love to hear your thoughts on your month (or mine)?
