Monthly Update: November 2016

A short monthly update of my portfolio.

IndicatorAs of 31-10As of 30-11% change
S&P 500 Total Return4,0464,1963.7%
Dow Jones Industrials Total Return38,00040,2345.9%
AEX GR1,4101,4281.3%
Portfolio value€ 24,323 € 25,634 5.4%

However, since I am in it for the long haul I am not too interested in these daily or monthly fluctuations. What matters is that I keep focused on buying high quality companies which provide me with a steady stream of growing dividends.


Dividends received
Four separate companies paid me dividends during this month.
  • DE: 18 shares @ $0.60 for a total of $10.80
  • KMI: 48 shares @ $0.125 for a total of $6.00
  • OHI: 100 shares @ $0.61 for a total of $61.00
Total: around € 61 after tax, which is 14% more than last year.

Dividend increases or decreases during this month
OHI raised its dividend by $0.01. Since I own 100 shares, that's roughly a € 4 raise in annual dividend income.

Yearly forward dividend
I am not sure what my annual forward dividend rate was at the end of December but right now it's around €980.

Seeking Alpha articles
Last month I wrote no articles on Seeking Alpha.
