2017 is already a few days old and sadly, I've been back to work for a few days as well. So is more then time to share my investment goals for this year.
€400 of dividend income
My current forward dividend is €273 and last year I raked in €114. Adding these two together should give me a nice aim for this year.
Add at least 4 companies to my portfolio...
I now own shares of 5 companies, KO,RDSA, UNA, OHI and WSR. Four extra companies should be a doable. I will be looking at a mix of more defensive shares and some a bit more cyclical. I already set a small order to buy a new company this week.
... of which at least one European company
Not only do I want to spread risks between different kinds of companies I also want to spread between currencies. So I will not only buy US stock but also Euro stocks.
Raise investments to €11.000
I now have invested about €6.000. I will not be investing more than last year, because I want to pay off a big part (10%) of my mortgage this year. Of course, dividends received will be reinvested.
€500 forward dividend income
I should be able to finish the year with a forward dividend income of €500. However, I will not be buying high yielding shares just to meet that mark if I don't think the company will be able to keep dividend (growth) in the near future.
How are your goals for 2017?
