Portfolio Update April 2017

Another month has passed on my dividend income journey and I want to give you a short update on my portfolio in April 2017. Currently the portfolio has already reached a size of 50 039.92 EUR. The portfolio contains of 32 companies and one ETF so far.


In April I added the following company to my portfolio:

  • Qualcomm: 50 shares at a price of 53.12 USD

This investment will now add about 114 USD before tax to my annual dividend income. Furthermore I am also very happy that I now finally have Qualcomm in my portfolio. It was on my watch list for quite a while.

Overview Portfolio


I also calculated my overall performance of my portfolio for the last 12 months, including dividends after tax and of course considering the investments. For the dividend investor the performance is not so important but it is still nice to see that you are not doing so bad :).  Compared March the performance of my portfolio was not so good after  all. The main reason for it is that USD is currently weaker than in the months before.


The more important graph is nevertheless the following one. It shows the development of my projected yearly dividend income and as long this one goes up everything is fine :).


How was your development of the portfolio or any other thoughts about my portfolio?

Disclosure: I do not recommend any decision to the reader or any user, please consult your own research. Thank you for your understanding.


  1. You will have ups and downs and that’s ok as long as the general trend is up. But portfolio ups and downs really aren’t if no concern it’s the constant dividends that is what matters

  2. Dividend income is what it’s all about! As long as your projected dividend income continues to increase, your portfolio is doing its job!

    Take care and thanks for sharing!
