Another month has passed on my dividend income journey and I want to give you a short update on my portfolio for June 2017. Currently the portfolio has already reached a size of 50 533.08 EUR. The portfolio contains of 33 companies and one ETF so far.
In June I added the following company to my portfolio:
- Greene King: 180 shares at a price of 7.45 GBP
This investment will now add about 58.8 GBP before tax to my annual 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 May the performance of my portfolio was not so good after all. The main reason for it is still that the USD is currently getting and weaker compared to the EUR. But this nothing to really worry about, I am currently putting more attention to the european market, to strengthen my EUR balance.
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 1 373.96 EUR that is an increase of 3.9% compared to May. By the way I already did my first investment in June, I increased my ETF by 70 units but more on that later :)…
Keep on investing guys!!
