Is it me or did January just fly by? It sometimes seems that time is going increasingly faster each day, but that maybe because that days seem a lot alike these days. We’re still in full lockdown here but it has been announced that primary schools are re-opening as of next week. Hopefully this is one of the first of many steps to go back to the future…erhm…normal!
Amazingly enough its already February and everything is in full swing for the new year. That leavs one more thing for me to finish up the first month of 2021 and that is to post my results and boy do I have some nice things to show you!
No less than 13 companies payed me a dividend with a nice total of €148,33. If you look at the visuals thats quite a big increase compared to last year. So what happened? ORI, thats what happened! Another special dividend from ORI, my second special dividend ever and for a second time from the same company.
Änd the visuals:
And working towards my 2020 goal of €1750 in dividends received:
So we’re done with with month #1 and we checked a nice 8% off our total. A great start for 2021!
January 2020: €79,14
January 2021: €148,33
Total dividend ever: €2971,77
A awesome increase of 87,43% compared to last year. Although to be fair, that special dividen skews the results a lot. So if we remove the special dividend from the equation we get a normalised growth rate of 14,58% compared to last year.
The progress is still very real even though this is already my fourth year as a dividend growth investor since 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!
