December 2016 dividend income

Hard to believe but 2016 has almost passed. Dividend income is growing at a steady pace and since the US elections my portfolio has soared to new heights. It’s been a very busy month, there are so many things on my to-do list but unfortunately there are only 24 hours in a day.

December 2016 dividend income

  • Unilever: 17.96EUR
  • Hershey: 6.21EUR
  • Coca Cola: 10.35EUR
  • Royal Dutch Shell: 75.36EUR
  • McDonalds: 5.57EUR
  • NVIDIA: 1.58EUR
  • Gilead: 4.45EUR

Because I live in Belgium, all figures are converted to euro and I list the net income after all applicable taxes. In total, my December dividend income hit a level of 121.48EUR, bringing the total 2016 dividend income to a sum of 1347.08EUR.

Dividend increases

  • General Electric increased its dividend by 4.3% to $0.24 per quarter.

New buys

I used a combination of dividend income and some leftover cash in my account to add three shares of Nike (NKE).

Earlier this week I started reading Shoe Dog, a new memoir written by Nike founder Phil Knight. It cover his trip around the world as a young adult in the 1960s, how he got into the shoe business, the start-up days of Nike and the company’s rise to fame. I’ve only read about 1/8th of the book so far but if you enjoy this sort of books I think this one is definitely worth the read! It’s well-written and Knight’s backstory is more captivating than I imagined, it’s hard to put this book down.


Happy holidays to all my readers and best wishes for 2017!
