Recent buy: RDSA

With the closing of October within reach I made another purchase this month. This week RDSA was pretty volatile and was dropping under €23 again. I wasn't really aiming to make another buy this month but with the current yield, and expected better Q3 report by Shell, I decided to expend my position a little bit more.

So last friday I bought another 10 shares RDS for €22,90. Including transaction fees the total costs wee €231,05 or €23,105 per share. This was just below the average costs of the previous 50 shares we already owned, which was €23,21 per share.

The new average cost per share are now €23,19. Shell annual dividends are $1,88 per share or €1,72 at the current euro/dollar rate. That brings the YOC for my RDSA shares to 7,4% and there by one of my highest yielding companies.

This buy increases my 12 month forward dividend with €17,20 to over €250 in total and just over €100 or RDSA alone.

As you can see RDS is taking up quite a big position in my portfolio. It now is time to increase other existing positions and invest in a couple of new companies.


  1. Congrats on still making those buys. As you know many of our fellow dividend peers are selling some or all of their positions feeling the market is already at lofty levels. Don't forget to diversify your portfolio. You don't want any one position to get too large and be a major source of your passive income stream. While I don't have any energy stocks in my portfolio I know RDS is a popular name in the space.

  2. Thank you and thank you for your warning. I agree with you about diversifying. My next blogpost will be about diversifying and new companies on my watchlist.

Dividend Update

It's been quiet here on the blog for a while now. Nothing's wrong but I was very busy at work and at home and didn't feel the energy to write some blogs. But now that everything is calming down a bit, it is time to pick up where I left off.

I've been investing a bit in the last month. I bought 10 extra UNA shares and also 11 shares of OHI. Both when they were dipping after their reported Q3 results.

Also I started investing in a new Mutual fund, which invests mainly in bonds.

In total I invested just short of 900 Euros for an expected anual dividend increase of €33.

I also collected dividends in september and october. In september I received €58.82 an increase of 270% compared to last year.

In november I received €15.58, an increase of 80% compared to last year.

New position AD

Yesterday I initiated a new postion. I bought 10 shares of Ahold Delhaize (AMS: AD). AD is company that was formed by the merger of Ahold from The Netherlands and Delhaize from Belgium. Ahold constists of their flagship Albert Heijn the market leader in supermarkets in The Neterlands, the largest liquor store chain Gall&Gall and the reason why Amazon doesn't have a big market share in Holland,

Most of these brands are also known in Belgium, but the main brand for Belgium is Delhaize.

Aold Delhaize is also active in the United States with brands like:

FoodlionStop&Shopbfresh and many more.They are also active in Asia.
I was eyeing for AD a little while but found them a bit expensive at a share price of €20 but since the announced takeover of Wholefoods by Amazon the share prices has taken a hit and closed at €16.04 yesterday. So it was now well within the price I was willing to pay for it.
I bought 10 shares of AD at a share price of €16.30. Including transaction c…

July 2017 dividend income

It's been a while since I posted my last blog. We were away for holiday vacation for a couple of weeks, camping in France. After that work kept me busy much more than I would have wanted but now it is time to blog again.

Now, just before the end of the month I finally have time to report my dividend income of July.

The first month of the quarter is alway a bit of an off month for my dividend income. I can report a dividend income after taxes of  €14.44.
The following companies paid me for owning their shares:

Coca Cola (KO): €7.71Whitestone REIT (WSR): €5.17Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS): €1.56 The still declining rate of the Dollar versus the Euro is still hurting my dividend income in Euro's. While my portfolio is slowly growing, my dividend income isn't, On the other side, it is also cheaper for me to buy US stocks.
