The holidays have come and gone, presents have been exchanged and the new year has begun. I hope you’ve had lovely holidays with your friends, family and loved ones. As for myself, it’s been an hectic end of the year but still I managed to take some time off work, reflect and spend a few days with my family. Thankfully we still did a quite normal / traditional Christmas day(s) and New Year celebrations so that was time well spent.
The awesome part about this DGI path is that even though you’re out celebrating and eating way more then you should, your dividends keep rolling in you’re brokerage account.
No less then 20 companies deposited their dividends into my brokerage account, ready to be reinvested (manually) in the same or other dividend stocks. New payer this month is Pinnacle West Corporation (PNW) which replaced my sold PPL position.
Here are the visuals:
And working towards my 2021 goal of €1750 in dividends received:
Do not let the negative amount fool you! It indicates that I’ve succesfully reached my goal and even stretched it by 8%. I made it my goal to receive €1750,- in dividends and received a grand total of €1918,46!
And (inspired by Engineering Dividends) a new graph with my annual dividend totals:
We’re done with 2021! I’ve reached my intended goal and then some. Awesome!
December 2020: €136,53
December 2021: €226,04
A very, very big increase of 65,56% compared to last year mostly caused by building out existing positions and by a change in paydate from Unilever (again). My average growth rate for 2021 came in at about 38% per month.
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!
