Already sold TGT again

As a dividend growth investor most of the time you buy shares and keep them for a very, very long time and collect those dividends. But sometimes you have to sell some of those shares.
Today I had to sell Target (TGT) after just owning them for 1 week.

Last week I bought TGT at $66.80 per share at the beginning of the markets after Donald Trump was elected president.
In one day the shares rose to about 71 dollars and stayed there until yesterday. And TGT went ex dividend last monday as well.

Today TGT presented it 3rd quarter figures pre market and those figures are quite good. Today the TGT shareprice rose again to 77 dollars plus. That's a 18% increase compared to my buying price. So today, after just owning the shares for a week, I sold my (4) TGT shares again for $77.25 per share. At the current quarterly dividend this profit equals more than 17-18 times dividend payment or 4.5 years of dividend payment.
This is a 15.6% profit. Adding the dividend into the equation of $0.60 per share increases profit to 16.5%.

But that's just the profit in dollars. As a European investor the Euro/Dollar rate is also important. And the dollars has risen quite a lot in the last week compared to the Euro. So taking that into account and taking off transaction fees, the total profit on my TGT shares has been 18.9%.

Of course I will reinvest the money that I now have in my brokerage account, probably I will add to one of my existing positions. And if TGT drops, it is back on the table as well..

This sell drops my 12 month forward dividend income with $9.60.

I have a question for the more experienced DGI's: Was this sell wise?

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.
