Monthly report: May 2024

May is over! We're almost halfway this year! 

I had a few big winners with HASI (+36%!) leading the pack. MPW, WMT and TXN also had +10% gains this month. Biggest loser was BMY (-7%) but the rest of the losses were quite small, both in numbers as well as their declines.

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 €190 after tax. Nine companies paid me dividends. The dividend income increased by about 10% 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 2024 (which obviously is just the first five 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 € 10.700.

How was your May? What is your watchlist?
