February 2019 dividend income

Another quick update. I’ll also start by saying that due to some changes in my life, I’m still dedicating a lot less time to the blog and my writings. This may or may not change in the future. I’m still building up my portfolio, but at a lower pace due to changes in my savings rate.

  • Colgate-Palmolive: 3.49EUR

A new year, some new buys, some fresh dividends, and some dividend increases!

Here’s an overview of the dividends I received in January 2019:

Adding it all up results in a total of 118.63EUR in after-taxes dividend income for January 2019.

Recent buys:

  • 21x Philip Morris: Picked up some shares last month to increase my total shareholding to 100 shares. High yield combined with a decent valuation.
  • 25x Ageas: My first stock in the financial sector. Low payout ratio combined with a decent yield and an attractive valuation.
  • 86x Synchrony Financial: My second financial stock. Somewhat riskier should a recession come around but cheap valuation, decent dividend yield with low payout ratio and a high level of buybacks.

Dividend increases:

  • Gilead: +10.5%
  • Novo Nordisk +3.8%
  • Warehouses De Pauw: +8%
  • Diageo: +5%
  • YUM! Brands: +17%

As it stands right now, I expect dividend income of around 1,889EUR over the next 12  months. Additionally, I should also be able to reclaim 240EUR via my tax return in 2020, resulting in a total of around 2,129EUR.
