December 2020 dividend income report

This year was a rocky ride full of nasty surprises. On the bright side, one thing that caught me by surprise is how well the stock market has been performing the past half year or so. If I recall correctly, my portfolio briefly dipped into the red in the March/April timeframe but now my portfolio is at an all-time high.

December 2020 dividend income

  • Well’s Fargo: 1.37EUR
  • PZ Cussons: 4.19EUR
  • OTIS: 0.38EUR
  • YUM! Brands: 3.44EUR
  • 3M: 10.01EUR
  • Coca Cola: 9.98EUR
  • Mc Donald’s: 6.27EUR

  • YUM! China: 1.15EUR
  • Raytheon Technologies: 2.03EUR
  • Royal Dutch Shell: 22.77EUR
  • Nike: 11.42EUR
  • NVIDIA: 1.46EUR
  • Gilead: 25.30EUR

This sums up to a total of 106.41EUR in after-taxes dividend income for December 2020.

My total dividend income for 2020 is 2,239.28EUR. An increase of 11.57 percent versus 2019. This is lower than I projected due to a variety of reasons. Unfortunately, dividend cuts are one big factor.

Another factor is that I had less money to invest and I’m also finding it harder to invest money wisely. A lot of stocks are just way too expensive right now. There are still stocks that seem cheap but often there’s a good reason why the market puts a lower valuation on a stock.

When I review my portfolio, some of my worst performers and laggards are definitely the stocks that seemed to be trading significantly more cheaply than the market at the time of purchase.


July, August, September, October & November dividend income report

It’s been like forever since I’ve last updated my blog. Due to a change in life priorities, new hobbies and work-related stuff I’ve been dedicating less time to my investing activities. I’m no longer writing as often but I’m still investing in companies from time to time and reinvesting my dividends.

Here’s a brief overview of the dividend income of the last couple of months. Everything is in euro and after all dividend taxes:

July: 193.61EUR

August: 75.61EUR

September: 143.64EUR

October: 261.48EUR

November: 159.68EUR

So far, I’ve pulled in 2138.43EUR in dividend income this year.
