With the dividend payment from GE hitting my account earlier today I can close October with my usual dividend income report.
This month I received four dividends:
- Coca Cola: 9.38EUR
- GlaxoSmithKline: 21.61EUR
- Philip Morris: 52.85EUR
- General Electric: 6.50EUR
As always, these are the net dividends I receive after currency conversion and dividend tax. Adding it all up gives a total of 90.34EUR in dividends for October.
Over the last couple of months my portfolio has seen some double-digit swings, a couple of weeks ago my total return plunged into the red but thanks to the strong performance of the stock market in October I’m once again at a total gain of over 11%. While it’s nice to see the portfolio value go up so fast, the downside of this is that dividend yields on a lot of stocks I’m interested in are becoming less attractive.
