March was a month as I never experienced before in my life. Both from a personal as a financial perspective. The stock market took a nosedive and for a few weeks I’m working most of my time from home as is now adviced by the Dutch governement.
The dividend report over March is still very positive as dividends got still paid out normally, but some companies announced cuts or are stopping their dividend payments at the moment. This will definately have an impact on my dividend income this year and probably also on next few years as the Covid-19 situation will probably impact the economy the next few years.
My dividend income this month is up 41% compared to previous years. In total I received this month €592,16. On the otherhand my outlook for this year declined from €6.010 last month to €5.207 now due to cancellations and cuts of dividend and probably more dividends will be adjusted downwards probably this year.
Normally I also have some option premiums to list as profit but this month I took a loss of €608,05 while closing all put options I had out in the market. I normally tend to not touch the options, but the Covid-19 developments are too unpredictable for me and I decided to take the loss and close all option positions.
