I picked up some Gilead shares

It’s been about a month since my last buy, dividends kept coming in and I managed to scrape some additional fresh capital together to initiate a position in Gilead. This biotech company is trading very closely to its 52 week low, it has a yield of 2.19 percent and a very low payout ratio of around 15 percent as it’s trading at a P/E of just 7.36

I picked up 10 GILD shares. After taxes this adds $11.66 in yearly dividend income, bringing my 12-month forward looking dividend projection to 1257.47EUR at today’s currency exchange rates. I’m in the early stages of writing a more detailed article about this company, perhaps it will be online next week.

A look at the dividend history of Reckitt Benckiser

After three months without a new dividend article I finally managed to crack out a new one. This time I took a closer look at British consumer goods firm RB. Its recent dividend growth has been a disappointment but the dividend history is quite interesting as the company increased its dividend by more than five-fold since 1999.

As I mention in the article, I’m not interesting in buying right now as the shares are trading quite high.
