Over the first quarter of 2016 I received €335 in dividend income. In total 18 different companies sent a payment my way for being a loyal shareholder.
I am invested mostly in dividend paying companies but there are also two holdings that don’t pay a dividend: Berkshire and Alphabet.
The majority of the dividend came from Coca-Cola, McDonalds and Proctor&Gamble, these three companies alone were responsible for exactly 50% of my total dividend income!
Lately my dividend income has not been growing as fast anymore because I made investments in some low dividend stocks and no-dividend paying stocks.
The stocks I added in Q1 are:
- Walt Disney (DIS)
- Alphabet (GOOG)
- Nike (NKE)
- Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B)
In the upcoming 2nd quarter my dividend income will most likely be significantly higher because of two Dutch companies paying a yearly dividend.
P.S. I will now be posting quarterly income reports, this presents a more balanced overview and will save me quitte some work at the same time :).
