It’s that time of the month again! I think (one of) the most favorite moments of any DGI-blogger is taking out the digital ledger to see what the results of the past month were. Even after five years it still has something magical to see dividend dripping into your brokerage account. Knowing that these amounts will eventually lead to more freedom down the road is a gratifying feeling. Also a very necessary feeling because the DGI road is long, sometimes lonely and let’s face it usually boring as well. 🙂
Here are my results from October 2021:
16 companies deposited their dividends into my brokerage account, ready to be reinvested (manually) in other or the same dividend stocks. New payer this month is Western Union (WU) and keen observers will see that I increased my position in LEG. Amazingly enough ORI provided yet another special dividend (my third since holding this stock) which packs quite a punch this month!
Here are the visuals:
And working towards my 2021 goal of €1750 in dividends received:
And (inspired by Engineering Dividends) a new graph with my annual dividend totals:
We’re done with month #10 and we still have two months to go! It’s a safe bet that I will reach my goal for 2021 in dividend received (barring a total market / dividend meltdown) so it will be interesting to see how much I can stretch that goal with some well-timed buys!
A whopping increase of 111,93% compared to last year (mostly thanks to the ORI special dividend)! I’m avaraging a growthrate of about 40% per month. Pretty sweet! The progress is definitely real going through my fifth year as a dividend growth investor starting back in March of 2017 (with a monthly total of €1,98).
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!
