Dividend Income: April 2015

Here is my Dividend Income for April 2015.

  • Nike Inc. (NKE) $5.32
  • The Coca-Cola Company (KO) $26.40
  • Laclede Group Inc (LG) $21.62
  • UPM-Kymmene Corporation (UPM1V) $90.72
  • Fortum Oyj (FUM1V) $400.14
  • Realty Income Corp. (O) $8.72
  • W.P. Carey Inc (WPC) $23.91

Total: $576.73

Both Fortum and UPM payed their full year dividends on April, that's why the big numbers. And Fortum is the biggest investment in my current portfolio.  

Other things that happened on April. I sold my position on Nike Inc. And purchased HCP and PSEC.
I have some money left on my brokerage account and I get my paycheck in few weeks. But I do not know when I will make my next purchase. Since I feel that I should gather some cash and wait for some good buying opportunities. This would help me save few dollars on buying fees. As I have recently announced that I'm Currently working on an "Efficiently Program". I'm also thinking of selling my car and buying a little bit cheaper car to get around.  This Is because of many different factors and I'm going to do a post about this.

I have also calculated that I may not be able to reach my goals for this years dividend income. There is also many factors in play on this one. One is weaker Euro, since good junk of my portfolio is in Euro. Second is that I have around 1 month in this year that I don't get payed. This Includes 3 weeks of unemployment and 1 week of no pay holiday. I did get around €500 of "unemployment money" from the Union but I'm still down around €1500. 

But on the bright side I did get that new job. So let's not whine more about little things.

Anyway I feel good about this month and looking forward trying to catch that dividend goal. 

Thanks for reading!

    Congratulations on a nice dividend income in April!
    Hauskaa Vappua!

  2. Nice! Congrats on the dividend income, Anha!


  3. Oh wow.... another month is upon us. How fast is 2015 rolling by. I guess the good part of time flying by is the dividend income update. Close to $600 coming is a serious amount. Congrats on a great month. Just KO is common between our portfolios though now that I bought into some REITs, O and WPC may find a home in the DivHut portfolio one day. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi DivHut!

      O is currently little bit overpriced on my taste, But WPC is looking affordable.

  4. I really love your attitude. Not complaining, and still going for your plan, even though you might not his your goals. You are cool.

    Great dividend income, keep the snowball rolling.

    congrats on the new job.

  6. Very nice month Anha Investing....I'm not familiar with Fortum Oyj (FUM1V) but whatever it is, it must have paid some sort of special dividend or you must have a lot of it. :)

    Regardless, I've certainly envious of your $500+ month. We are still quite a ways away from that kind of monthly payout.

    Thanks for sharing your progress. Keep up the momentum! AFFJ

    1. Hi AFFJ!
      It was indeed a good moth, Fortum pays only once a year, which is common in Europe. No special dividend just a regular dividend. And yes It is my biggest holding with m-value around 5000€
