Dividend income received in February 2016

Another early report as most of the dividends I received this month concentrated around the middle of the month:

  • YUM! Brands: 3.93EUR
  • Kinder Morgan: 4.43EUR
  • Omega Healthcare Investors: 6.49EUR
  • Colgate-Palmolive 3.46EUR

Overall a pretty lackluster month with just 18.31EUR of dividend income. Due to Kinder Morgan’s dividend cut, the total I received this month is less than the same month the year before.  After the dividend cut, I thought about selling the stock but in the end I realized that the damage was already done. The stock did not turn out to be what I thought it was and has a more speculative profile, but given its small weight in my portfolio I decided to follow a wait-and-see approach and apply the lessons learned to future stock purchases.

Dividend increases (update)

This is also a month of several nice dividend increases:

  • Novo Nordisk: +28%
  • Warehouses De Pauw: +18%
  • Coca Cola: +6.1%
  • Diageo: +5.12%
  • Sanofi: +2.8%

    It is still a pizza and a beer you can have without doing anything.
    The whole KMI story is usefull for my future decision on DGI. I hesitate a lot between the easy ETF way out vs building a portfolio myself.

      Indeed, when you buy an ETF there may be a Kinder Morgan in the index, but due to the wider diversification and the fact that you can’t really follow all constituents of the ETF closely you won’t really notice events like these.
