May 2017 dividend income report

Another early dividend income post as there are no dividends in the queue for the back half of this month.

May 2017 dividend income:

  • AB InBev: 40.6EUR
  • Bristol-Myers Squibb: 4.9EUR
  • Van de Velde: 57.19EUR
  • YUM! Brands: 2.41EUR
  • Omega Healthcare Investors: 8.51EUR
  • Colgate-Palmolive: 3.45EUR
  • Kinder Morgan: 4.18EUR
  • Sanofi: 25.89EUR
  • Warehouses De Pauw: 1 new share valued at 83.44EUR + 59.7EUR cash = 143.14EUR

Adding it all up gives a total of 290.27EUR for May 2017, my highest monthly dividend income to date and 27.11% more than in 2016. All figures are after all applicable taxes and fees.

Like last year, I opted for WDP’s share dividend and received one extra share plus a load of cash. This extra share should increase my 2018 after-taxes dividend income by around  3.12EUR.

So far I haven’t added any new shares this month but I did publish an article about my position in NVIDIA. Since I bought the shares in November 2016, my NVIDIA stock has delivered a total return of 66.19! This makes it the second-best performing stock in my portfolio. Surprisingly, the best stock in my portfolio is McDonald’s, which is up 94.51 percent since I bought it 2.5 years ago.

I must say I’m a fan of the new McDonald’s premium burgers, nice step up in quality. Here’s a new variety that’s offered in Belgium:

    Congratulations on the new record of monthly dividend income. I love when that happens! Keep building that dividend income stream!

    Nice increase and good to see the new burgers. McDonalds do the same here in Australia. Cheers

    The new premium burgers look delicious and McDonalds has definitely stepped up their game back home. Oh yeah, and some delicious dividend increases by the way. Congrats on the great month and the new record!

    That’s a great report. 290 EUR in dividend income for one month is more than my projected yearly dividend income as to today’s date. Of the stocks that paid you dividends in May, I’m considering adding OHI to the list, but we’ll see.

    Looking forward to more awesome reports.
