Each month I will publish my dividend income. I will mainly do this for staying self motivated and to give you the readers the chance to follow my journey from the beginning on. The dividend income in the first couple of years will be on a very low level but investing in dividend stocks is all about the long term. I am very sure that in 5 years from now I will get my first rewards for the patience and focus on my goals.
Again time for another dividend income update. The year ended with a blast it is the second time that I crossed the 100 EUR in dividend income. Looks like that I now get my first rewards :). My dividend income in December was 117.30 EUR which is my 2nd best month so far. New dividends were coming from ORI and SO.
Overview dividend income December
My total dividend income in 2016 is at 706.26 EUR compared to 246.79 EUR for the whole year in 2015, that is an increase of 186.18 %. My current forward full year dividend income is at around 1 017.72 EUR after tax and always depending on the current exchange rate. The 706.26 EUR in total dividend income are a little more than I have expected throughout the year. This mainly comes from my last purchases I did in the last quarter of the year.
Overview monthly dividend income 2016
My average monthly dividend income in 2016 was at 58.86 EUR and for 2017 I am already having an average forward monthly dividend income of 84.81 EUR. So there is still a lot of work to do to cross the 100 EUR per month but I am getting closer and closer and somehow I am having the feeling my snowball starts to get bigger and bigger. I also can see a very good progress compared to the situation one year ago where my average monthly dividend income by the end of the year was at 20.56 EUR.
