November is over! Almost the last month of the year. Crazy!
The stock market performed rather nice in terms of price appreciation. I had three big winner with more than 20% increases (HASI, BLK, INTC) with HASI even +36%. Some smaller winners like O, MDT, BAX, ASML. I had a few companies with losse of just over 5% like Ahold, Omega Healthcare and Cisco.
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?!
A total of about €185 after tax. Nine companies paid me dividends. The dividend income increased by about 25% compared to last year. This increase is mainly the result of my new positions in AOS (here) and increased positions in TXN (here and here) and Realty Income (O). Deere also showed steady dividend growth.
In the graph below I've showed my monthly dividend income.
Currently my annual dividend income is around € 10.500.
How was your November? What is your watchlist?
