Monthly report: February 2024

February is over! Already the 2nd month of a new year. 

Unlike last month, MPW was the biggest gainer with +28%. Still a big loser considering the price I paid but I'll hold for now. The other big winner is CMI (+11%). Biggest loser is BHP due to their earnings report/dividend cut but a loss of just 8% is not really something I am too worried about. Deere also lost over 7% which is more annoying, since it is one of my biggest positions.

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 more than €180 after tax. Eight companies paid me dividends. The dividend income increased by just over 11% compared to last year. This increase is mainly the result of my increased position in Realty Income (here and here). Deere's dividend increase also helps a lot!

In the graph below I've showed my cumulative dividend income for 2023 (which obviously is just the first two months of the year). The cumulative dividend income is about the same as last year at this point in time. I expect to see a little growth in the coming months, but nothing too serious. 

Currently my annual dividend income is around € 10.500. This is slight less than last month because of the BHP dividend reduction.

How was your February? What is your watchlist?
