Ladies and gentleman, we did it! We finished 2017 strong with saving and investing in quality companies. This also marks the end of my first year as an dividend growth investor, and what a year its has been. From my first buys, to receiving my first dividend and making some extra-large buys here and there. Also noteworthy is my first investment in crypto coins right here. I have yet to make an update post for that speculation, but that will be another time (its positive though!).
So for a lot of the DGI community the December haul is the largest of the year. Not so for me, my largest haul was last november. Its no small month either, so here are my results:
So the total amount for this month is €10,93 which is less than previous month total of €15,92. 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:
So my total for the year is……..
So that concludes 2017 for me. I didn’t make the goal I set for myself in receiving 130 euros in dividend income. I made it to 68,3%, so I can conclude that I set my goal a bit too ambitious in the previous year. I will need to make a more realistic goal (or goals!) for myself in 2018. My next post will be about these goals!
So my fellow investors, how was your month?
