June has come and gone and so we pass the half year mark of 2020 and what a year it has been so far. I hope my dear readers are still staying safe and where possible are enjoying some well-earned time off.
Thankfully I can still count on my dividends rolling in. Unfortunately I’ve suffered my second dividend loss in the shape of a -39% dividend cut from SPG. It was expected but that doesn’t make the sting any less.
So for now I’ve had Disney cut/suspend their dividend completely and SPG with a big cut. The good part is that these two companies represent the smallest positions in my portfolio (2 and 4 shares respectively) so the total impact on my forward income (which now stands at €1379) is relatively low.
No less then 17 companies our paying me this month. I’d like to note that this is my highest dividend income ever and that I crossed the €150 mark in a quarter-ending month. The first and second month of the quarter are a bit behind in monthly totals so I need to work on those to provide a more evenly distributed dividend total.
And onto the visuals:
And working towards my goal for 2020:
So we’re halfway through the year and I’m at 45% of my goal for 2020. I’m a little bit behind schedule and we have one (very) big expense coming up since we are buying the ground on which our house is built! This will severely limit my abillity to do some extra deposits in my investing account, but nonetheless its a different investment in our future. 🙂
June 2019: €81,95
June 2020: €153,26
An exciting 46,53% growth compared to June 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!
