The last dividend for May hit my account this morning so it’s time for this month’s roundup report.
Dividends received May 2016
- Van de Velde: 59.64EUR
- YUM! Brands: 3.77EUR
- Sanofi: 26.73EUR
- Kinder Morgan: 4.24EUR
- Omega Healthcare Investors: 7.93EUR
- Colgate-Palmolive: 3.40EUR
- Warehouses De Pauw: 1 share valued at 73EUR (dividend reinvestment) plus 49.64EUR cash = 122.64EUR
In total that’s 228.35EUR for the month of May. It’s the biggest month to date and it’s about 12x as high as what I received in February, my worst-performing month in terms of dividend income.
The reason for this is very simple, May’s total gets beefed up significantly by a number of European companies with an annual dividend payout rate. Warehouses De Pauw and Sanofi pay just one dividend a year, and Van de Velde pays twice a year but their big one is in May.
How is your month shaping up?
