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!

    Very nice results for the month and the year.

    That book is waiting for me start reading it. I got it as a gift.

    Question: is it not too expensive to buy 3 shares? When I am correct, that is a buy of 150 EUR. what trading fee do you pay here? (If I may ask)

    Thanks for sharing your results. Happy New Year! Let us hope that this is the last time our government increases dividend taxes😦


  5. Buy, Hold Long

    Excellent result for the month and the end of the year. I am still starting my progress towards a passive income so I have a lot to go. But reading articles like this really gets me excited for the future, and the passive income that comes with it.

      Thanks DC, best wishes and lots of dividends for 2017!

      About half-way through the book and one of the things I like is that it’s easy to relate to. He seems like a young spirit, most of what I’ve read so far is about what occurred in his late 20s and early 30s, pretty interesting to read about his personal highs and struggles as he juggled between his personal life, his job and what would eventually become Nike.
