Yes! Another month working from home has ended and it’s time to tally up our total dividends for the month. I don’t know about you guys and girls but I sure could get back to normal. Even though I still understand and support (most not all) of the decisions made to flatten the curve it has been taking a toll on me. I miss the office life and find the situation sometimes challenging.
I find it extremely difficult to either be 100% commited to my work or 100% committed to my family. It’s all a blur between working and family life and I’m not liking it. Sure it helps that I can decide my own hours but in reality I’m working during the day and evening.
Fortunately I can still count on the dividens pouring in. No dividend cuts so far, but I’m still expecting them (SPG for example).
Some of you will immediately spot my first dividend from MDT which I’m pretty pleased about even though I’m paying 25% dividend tax instead of 15% on US stocks (since its based in Ireland). My fellow DGI’ers, is this correct or am I doing some math wrong here?
On to the visuals:
Working towards the 2020 goal of €1500 in dividends:
April 2020: €62,90
April 2020: €93,89
An awesome 49,2% growth compared to April last year. As always my results are converted from their base currency to euro and are post-tax.
I would love to hear your thoughts on the results of this month and ofcourse on your own results. Please let me know in the comments!
