  1. Not a bad looking portfolio to start with. Some nice yield from all your payers. Look forward to seeing you grow your portfolio.

  2. Strong companies and its always nice to see other EU investors blogs :)

  3. Nice start. Quality stocks here. Based on your entry prices, it looks like the Euro and US dollar are almost even right now. I may need to take a trip over there ;-).

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.

recent sell: ABBV

It was a long time ago that I sold some stocks, but yesterday I did. I sold my total position (3 shares) in Abbvie (ABBV).

I bought the ABBV shares last January for a price of $62.75 a share and sold them at $81.50, which is almost a capital gain of 30%. In dollars that is.
As I live in The Netherlands, I look at my investments in Euros. And because the dollar has weakened tremendously since January, my actual capital gains are just 12%.
When I add the dividends I received the "profit" I made was 14%.

Why did I sell? Well, mostly because of the surge in shareprice ABBV made yesterday. I expect that that shareprice >$80 won't last very long. I still like ABBV though, so if the price comes down a quite a bit I might another batch of shares.

For now I expanded on one of my other positions, which I will write about in another blog.

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…
