(*8/9/2018: Thanks to Dividend Daze who pointed out I had overwritten my July month in my graph, I realised that also my YTD and total overall are wrong so I updated them as well as the graph. Even more positive now! :))
Aaaaaand another month gone! Poof, just like that. I find myself sounding like a broken record but the months are flying by at mach 3.
I celebrated my birthday the past weekend and am officially closer to 40 then 30. Not that it bothers me in the least but with the birthday money I can buy some additional stocks 🙂
The sharp observers among you may have noticed that there was no monthly buy post in August. In the free time I had I wasn’t able to make a choice in which stock(s) I was to purchase. So when August ran out of days I decided to make an extra-including-birthday-money-extra large buy in September.
But that’s something for another post, let’s focus on the dividends received for August and boy do I have some news for you!
No less then 7 companies payed me past month. See the breakdown below:
You have read that right, a whopping €43,69 (!) has been payed out to my account. I blew completely past the €3x range and straight into the €4x range! Ofcourse this is not my new average monthly total (I wish!) but its great to see these kind of amounts hitting my account every quarter from now on. Mainly due to my two largest positions at the moment: T & ABBV.
This monster haul is my largest ever!
So this means my progress so far this year is still coming along nicely (check out the new scaling!):
And so far so good on my 2018 goals:
Total dividend YTD 2018: €185,69.
Total dividend received ever: €274,84.
And now….the big moment, my YoY-comparison!
August 2017: €12,26.
August 2018: €43,69.
Thats another amazing increase of 356,36% compared to last year!
I’ll be off binge-commenting (thanks Tom for that one) on your blogs now, I would love to hear your thoughts on your month (or mine)?
