Recent buy: WSR

I had still a little bit of collected dividend lying around on my brokerage account which wasn't quite enough to buy a single share of most companies. However, Whitestone REIT (WSR) was going around for only $13 a piece today.

So I purchased just 3 shares of WSR to add to my other 50 at a price of $12.95 a piece. At this share price WSR yields a whopping 8.8%.Including transaction fees the total share price is €12.41. This purchase will increase my expected annual income by just €2.75 after taxes at current exchange rates.

My cost basis for WSR is reduced from €13.28 to €13.23, just a marginal change. YOC is now 8.6%.

Whitestone just reported solid financial figures over 2016. When I have some more money availlable and the price is still attractive I will expand on this position.

  1. Thats an interesting buy. Very close to its 52-week low.

    But the P/E ration seems a bit off right at almost 50?

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, bol.com.

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.
