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?
A very nice and solid month! In Europe/Belgium May seems to be the dividend month.
My dividends (well, he whole 2) are paid as well. For me, SOLB is the big contributor. And June should be the same result with RDSA that went ex-dividend yesterday and pays in June
WDP and Van de Velde are on my radar. I want to have a Belgian bias in my DGI portfolio for tax reasons. Some of the companies are actually active Benelux/European, so, that is not a real issue to me.
Indeed, lots of payments concentrated in May. One of my other Belgian companies, Moury Construct, pays in June though.
I think WDP and VAN are both great companies, they still offer a nice net yield but unfortunately they have gotten a tad expensive. I wish I had bought more VAN in November 2014, when I purchased my first shares they traded at just 38.07EUR. In terms of total gain, VAN is now the second-best performing share in my portfolio and WDP ranks fifth.
As i have a lot of time, i plan to wait for another february moment. I regret i did not buy cofinimmo back then.

Great dividend income you’ve got in May one of my slowest month for dividend income
Keep the snowball rolling.
Now I’m looking for an Investor that will invest in my Ecommerce that I’ve started in May 1st.
Thanks for stopping by. Good luck with your new business!
That’s a very nice amount of dividends this month from some recognizable names, nice job. We are only at the start of our journey, and not many Australian companies pay in May, so we only got 1 payment this month, which we will be blogging about very soon 🙂
Good luck with your dividend investing journey! I’m not really familiar with the Australian stock market, with exception of BHP Billiton but they’re only half Australian.

Thank you. I bet you’ve heard of a few more: Computershare, Westfield, Rio Tinto..
Ah indeed how could I forget Rio Tinto. I’m not familiar with Westfield though, and I thought Computershare was US based.
Great amount of dividend income for May. Isn’t it great to see that dividend income increasing every month? 😀
I haven’t looked at our May dividend income yet but we should be getting over $1,000 once again. Very exciting to receive so much money without doing anything.
It is certainly very nice to see an upward pattern 🙂
Your numbers are impressive too, hope to get there in the near-future!
