Monthly report: April 2024

April is over. It wasn't a good month in terms of stock prices. All the gains from March are more or less gone. I had a few big losers like Intel (-30%!), BMY (-17%),  IBM (-12%) and a lot more smaller losers. Furthermore I had some smaller winners like Unilever, Shell and PM but nothing really fancy. 

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 just under € 300 in dividend income, about the same as last year. This increase is mainly the result of new purchases of Realty Income (here and here). Dividend growth for my other holdings is somewhat muted. Finally the dividend cut from MPW still has its effects.

In the graph below I've shown my monthly dividend income. You can see the rather small increase from April 2023 but the underlying trend is still up.

In the graph below I've showed my cumulative dividend income. 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 about € 10.700, more or less the same as last month.

How was your April? What is your watchlist?
