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

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:


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


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?
