I few days ago I started a position in Ahold Delhaize (ticker: AD). I outlined my reasons in my recent Seeking Alpha article which you can read here. I want to strengthen my Euro-denominated part of the portfolio. Ahold Delhaize yields around 3,9% and raised its dividend with a whopping 18% last time around. It is reasonably priced at the moment (at least in my opinion). It offers a stable business model with room to grow with its online business like Bol.com.
I added 60 shares for about € 23 per share. This purchase will add € 54 to my annual dividend income stream which stands at around € 2.025 pre-tax. With this purchse I reached a milestone of € 2.000 in dividend income! My next milestone will be € 2.400 (which is €200 per month on average). Hopefully I can reach this by the end of the year!
What do you think of my purchase?
