May Dividend Report 2018

Monthly Report May:

May is another record dividend income month for me! This month I received €328,19 in dividends compared to €124,24 last year. This is an increase of 164%!

New positions in WDP, Unibail-Rodamco, Kas Bank, Macquarie Infrastructure Company and Amsterdam Commodities made a lot of difference.

This month I made many changes to my portfolio. When I started building my portfolio I did spread my monthly deposit over different purchases to reach a diversified portfolio faster. As a result I still have a few very small positions. This month I sold some small positions from companies which are not scoring high on my watchlist which means I (probably) won’t increase the size of the position anytime soon.

I also sold Macquarie Group LTD, because for me as Dutch investors it’s hard to find interesting articles and analysis about this company which keep me well informed about this company. I only did read publications by Macquarie Group itself and I prefer to read articles from other sources also to be able to read critical feedback about the company so I can sharpen my opinion and knowledge about a company. For this reason I now also added to my personal investing guidelines a rule about only investing in companies where I can easily gain access to articles and analysis.

This month I also paid an extra €5.000 into my mortgage loan. This will result in less debt and €360 per year in less interest payments.

I ended the month with a portfolio value of €54.581.
