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
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!
