June is over! We are halfway in 2022. June was a hectic month (again) with regards to the stock market. There were some serious up- and down days but I am not worried about that. In the end it's all about the dividend income. Since I am not a seller of stocks at this point in my life, I don't really care about lower prices.
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?!
So all in all a rather good month! I've used the dividend from Unilever and Shell to drip additional shares in both companies.
In the graph below I've showed my cumulative dividend income for 2022 (which obviously is just the first six months of the year). But it shows that I earned about the same dividend as last year in just six months time!
How was your June? What is your watchlist?
