May 17: Dividend income

June has already started so it is time to report my dividend income in May.

May was a better month than February, but it could have been even better. Because the dollar took a hit compared to the Euro, my income in Euro's suffered a bit.

I received dividend from the follwing companies:
  • Whitestone REIT (WSR): €5.39
  • Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI): €19,31
  • Texas Instruments (TXN): €1,53
  • Abbvie (ABBV): €1,47
  • Kempen Global High Dividend Mutual Fund: €4,86 (DRIP)
Total net dividend income was €32,56, breaking the €100 YTD and almost equalling the total dividend income of 2016.
I cannot compare this month's income with last year, because last year I didn't receive any dividends.

How was your May dividend income?

I will updat my dividend income page soon..


  1. Keep swimming along dolphin. Those dividends continue to roll in and next year you'll be able to compare your May year over year growth. Happy to be a fellow ABBV shareholder. It's one of my larger positions in my portfolio. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Dolphin -

    Heck yah! Big companies paying you, setting records, breaking milestones - only makes the dolphin hungrier for next month. KEEP IT UP!!!


  3. Awesome job. Especially since you almost equaled last years income anytime that happens you can really smile keep it up

  4. Excellent results Dolphin! OHI was also kind to pay me as well. Keep it up!

  5. How do you cope with the growing Eur/usd? Just sit still? It is slowly eating from my portfolio... (also in Holland)

  6. Not a bad month - keep up the good work. Mine was OK but I'm looking forward to June which should be a lot better!

  7. Good report dolphin. In May, I received a total of $2.85 in dividends. As of today, my projected yearly dividends will be $187.27. I'm right there with you starting small, but we both have no where to go but up.

    Looking forward to more awesome reports.

  8. I have been thinking of buying shares too. In a good company, not particularly a bank. Though I am quite young but I think it’s good to invest here and there for future income.

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.
