As promised here is my dividend report for July. It is great to realise that even when you’re sleeping or having fun on vacation your investments are working for you!
So the dividends of this month came from three different companies:
So the total amount for this month is €6,55 which is more than previous month total of €2,72. Fluctuations abound every month but still explainable as I am just starting my DGI journey. This amount already has been adjusted fo the foreign withholding tax of 15% (not 30% since our country has a tax treaty).
My year to date graph is now looking like this:
With this dividends received I am also inching towards my 2017 goal:
Its also nice to see that I crossed the 25% mark of my goal for 2017. Since more then half of the year is already gone, its pretty clear that I won’t be reaching my goal (I set the bar a bit too high) but lets see how close I can get.
A great and fun thing I saw on another DGI blog (sorry I don’t remember at the moment which but if one of my readers does, please let me know so I can edit this entry for proper credit) is to show something that can be purchased with your received dividends.
So for my €6,55 I can for instance buy the ebook: How to Pick the Best Dividend Paying Stocks for a total of €6,04 and have €0,51 left to buy some fruit at the local grocery. 🙂
So how was your July month?
