December is over! Heck, even 2021 is over. It was a year in which I seriously boosted my dividend portfolio. Hopefully I can continue this in 2022. We'll have to wait and see.
Let's see how many companies sent me a dividend check for my ownership. These checks are the results of decisions I made earlier in life, sometimes years ago, where I decided to purchase shares in these companies. Nowaydays I still collect these checks but I have to do absolutely nothing to receive them. They just get deposited in my brokerage account, no questions asked. Isn't that great?!
|December dividend income: 2021 vs. 2020|
A total of almost € 230. Fourteen companies paid me dividends. The dividend income increased by almost 50% compared to last year. The bigger increases are the result of additional purchases in Unilever, TROW, BEP, BIP and CMI. Aflac and Union Pacific increased their dividend by a substantial amount last year.
In the graph below I showed my cumulative dividend income for 2021.
I am about 65% ahead compared to the dividend I received last year. In absolute numbers this is an increase of € 900. Currently my annual dividend income is around € 2.945.
How was your December? What is your watchlist?
