Another month has passed on my dividend income journey and I want to give you a short update on my portfolio for July 2017. Currently the portfolio has already reached a size of 50 421.49 EUR. The portfolio contains of 33 companies and one ETF so far.
In July I added the following position to my portfolio:
- iShares EURO STOXX Select Dividend 30: 70 units at a price of 20.54 EUR
This investment will now add about 68.87 EUR before tax to my annual dividend income. In total I have now 210 units of this ETF in my portfolio and based on a yearly payout of 0.98 EUR it will add 206.62 EUR to my yearly dividend income. It is just nice being able to make an investment worth of more than 1000 EUR per month. It increases the amount of money, which is working for me and it reduces the time I have to work for money the way I am doing it right now :). So it is a win win situation, and I have to say investing just makes fun. For me it is already normal to put every month some money in the market. Of course there will come other times as well, with decreasing stock prices but this is time we have to be greedy.
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 to Junethe performance of my portfolio was not so good after all. Since a long time my portfolio is a little in the red zone without dividends. The main reason for it is still that the USD is currently getting and weaker compared to the EUR and the since one week the korean crisis. But yeah let’s hope that this ends well, otherwise I am expecting a massive crash at the stockmarkets.
Anyway as long as the dividends are coming in and my projected dividend income increases month by month I am more than happy. Currently my full year dividend income is 1 381.11 EUR that is an increase of 0.5% compared to June…
Keep on investing guys!!
