March 2018 Dividend Report

And POOF(!) another month is gone, winter is finally over and spring has sprung (or something like that). Time for one of my favourite things to blog about, my dividend income.

Regular visitors of this blog also know that this post is going to be a special one. It’s the first time I can do a year-over-year comparison with the previous year. My DGI journey started in february last year and I received my first dividend in March.

My total for March 2017 was: €1,98

Let us see how we did in March 2018. A total of 7 companies paid me this month:

Date Ticker Shares Amount (€)
01/03/2018 INTC 8 1.65
01/03/2018 PFE 9 2.11
12/03/2018 IBM 2 2.05
13/03/2018 ADM 18 4.13
15/03/2018 O 23 3.47
19/03/2018 VFC 6 1.9
21/03/2018 QCOM 6 2.35
€17,66

Yes! A total of €17,66 (after taxes) of free money was deposited in my account. The third highest dividend I have ever received. 🙂

My year to date graph looks like this:

div_received_march_2018

This brings me that much closer to my 2018 goal:

div_received_ytd_2018

The first quarter of the year has pased and I’m on 23% of my goal for 2018, so it looks like I’m on the right track!

Total dividend YTD: €45,70
Total dividend received ever: €134,49

And now….the big moment, my YoY-comparison!

March 2017: €1,98
March 2018: €17,66

A whopping 891,9% increase compared to last year!

I knew it was going to be an increase, but never expected it to be this much. As you can understand, I’m pretty happy with my results at the moment!

How about you dear readers, how was your March?

February 2018 Dividend Report

And BAM, month two is in the pocket! This ofcourse is a short month but it also went by extremely fast or is it just me?

In any case, I am pleased to announce that this was a new dividend record for me! I was payed by 5 different companies this month. Here are the numbers:

Date Ticker Shares Amount (€)
01/02/2018 AT&T 21 7.13
01/02/2018 GIS 10 3.33
15/02/2018 OHI 13 5.94
15/02/2018 HRL 10 1.28
15/02/2018 O 23 1.49
  € 19.17

A grand total of €19,17 for me this month. A new dividend record in this short year that I started this journey! On the 20th of february 2017 I purchased (dutch post) my first stocks, shares in Ahold. The cool part is that I recieved my first dividends in March 2017, so that means that in my next dividend report I can make my first Year-over-Year comparison, so I’m pretty excited to see (& report) those numbers!

My year to date graph looks like this:

dividend_february_2018_YTD

This brings me that much closer to my 2018 goal:

dividend_received_february_2018

All in all, I’m a very happy camper with my february results. 🙂

November 2017 Dividend Report

Another month has come and gone and now we are the last month of 2017. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: “MAN I LOVE BEING A TURTLE!” Whoops sorry wrong quote!. Bonus points for the one that can give me the movie where its from (you can almost guess it!).

So how did I do this month, well I’m pleased to report that this is my best month ever! The largest dividend haul of my (very) short DGI journey but still I get a real kick out of it.

A total of five companies paid me in November:

Date Ticker Shares Amount (€)
1/11/2017 NYSE:T 12 4.28
1/11/2017 NYSE:GIS 10 3.56
15/11/2017 NYSE:HRL 10 1.22
15/11/2017 NYSE:OHI 13 6.1
15/11/2017 NYSE:O 5 0.76
€15.92

So the total amount for this month is €15,92 which is less than previous month total of €6,41. This amount already has been adjusted fo the foreign withholding tax of 15% (not 30% since our country has a tax treaty).

My year to date graph is now looking like this:

With these dividends received I am also inching towards my 2017 goal:

So thats my report for November! How was your month?

October 2017 Dividend Report

October has come and gone, only November and December left for me in this first year of my DGI journey. And what an amazing journey it is so far. Next to the joy of building your financial future and seeing free money rolling in I have to say the other big thing about this whole thing is the DGI community. What an awesome group of people there is sharing their knowledge and experiences for the benefit of all. I thank you all!

Without further ado I present my results for this month!

A total of three companies paid me in October:

Date Ticker Shares Amount (€)
13/10/2017 NYSE:O 5 0.76
16/10/2017 NYSE:HASI 15 3.57
25/10/2017 NYSE:CSCO 10 2.08
€6.41

So the total amount for this month is €6,41 which is less than previous month total of €8,56. This amount already has been adjusted fo the foreign withholding tax of 15% (not 30% since our country has a tax treaty).

My year to date graph is now looking like this:

dividend_received_october_YTD.png

With these dividends received I am also inching towards my 2017 goal:

dividend_total_october_2017.png

Slowly but steadily I am reaching the half way mark. With one month left to go in 2017 it is safe to say that I definitely will not reach my total dividend goal. I was somewhat optimistic in what I could achieve with the allocated money for this DGI adventure in just 11 months. Nevertheless I am pleased with the progress I’m making and I’m really looking forward to making YOY comparisons in 2018.

I still have one buy in November which could affect my dividend income for this December providing I time it right, so stay tuned!

So dear reader, how was your monthly haul?
