In May I broke for the 3rd month in a row my dividend income record. I received €736,15 in dividends. This is an YoY increase of 111%! My record breaking streak will be over now for this year. Based on my portfolio and the timing of dividend payments, I estimate I will have to wait till April 2020 to set a new record.
This month I received payments from 18 companies. The 3 biggest payers in May are for me BMW, ING and Bayer. To be honest this is a funny top 3 for me. Normally BMW is a big cost for me, as I drive a BMW. I also pay monthly a substantial amount to ING, because I have a mortgage from ING. And Bayer well… the girlfriend is using some pills produced by Bayer.
Funny to have a 3 companies in the top 3 dividend payers this month which normally are responsible for a substantial part of my costs.
The son of my girlfriend is the most impressed by my lowest dividend paying company this month: Tencent. He told his friends that moms boyfriend is making money from Fortnite 🙂
Besides depositing €1.300 in my brokers account, I also did make an extra repayment on my mortgage of €1.500 reducing my mortgage debt and resulting in lower future interest payments.
I didn’t have any option income this month as I didn’t write any put options last month. Based on the high volatility I didn’t consider the option premiums worth it.
