Dividends in April 2021

dividends in february 2022

Hello dear dividend friends! Today I would like to inform you again (a little late) about the dividends from April. There was a lot of cash incoming, so much in advance! Which values have paid me a dividend, you will learn in the following blog post. Have fun!

Dividends in April 2021

Because of the crash last year I had the chance to build a beautiful stock portfolio which distribute nice dividends onto my account. With this blog series I want to share with you how many dividends I receive, and also which companies increased/decreased/cut their dividends and how I handle that.

Due to larger individual dividend payments, April was even better than March. A whopping 464,94 EUR was paid out to me as a dividend. By the way, the figures are neither gross nor net, but somewhat mixed. In the case of US dividends, for example, 15% withholding tax has already been deducted. Dividends from British companies come without tax deduction.

  1. Flow Traders
    First place goes to my last post-purchase Flow Traders by a wide margin. Here I was transferred 212,50 EUR. 15% Dutch withholding tax was withheld.
  2. GlaxoSmithKline
    Second place went to GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) with the equivalent of 53,31 EUR.
  3. Rio Tino
    Rio Tinto also arrived in 3rd place with a nice final dividend of the equivalent of 33,27 EUR.
  4. Iron Mountain
    One of my favorite REITs Iron Mountain (IRM) paid me a quarterly dividend of 29,31 EUR in April.
  5. Altria
    Last but not least I received 16,82 EUR from Altria (MO) .

There are many other and smaller dividends, which you can see in the screenshot above.

My broker(s)

I have several brokers for my stocks, but the majority are German ones, so European readers of my blog cannot register there. As you may know I'm very transparent about the income I receive if you use one of my * affiliate or referral links. Most of the time there is a bonus for you, but never ever costs!    Degiro is my second largest broker. A while ago they did a fusion with the German broker flatex and it's now the biggest broker in Europe. You can trade already from 0,50 EUR directly on the NYSE or other US stock exchanges. Also, I trade European options there.

If you use my link* and register an account on Degiro you get a refund of 20€ transaction credit. You only need to spend 20€ transaction credit within 3 months. If you do so, and only then, I have also the possibility to get a refund.

About new projects on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook

On my own behalf, I would like to mention that I also present new projects on Twitter (kaph1016) and Instagram (investdiversified) in which I invest myself. Also, on Facebook I have a page. There are also a few insights into how I invest in other areas. So just follow me :). *Some links in my posts are affiliate or referral links. That means I get a little bonus. For each of those who use these links, however, there are no costs or other disadvantages. On the contrary, there is usually a start bonus or cashback. So if you use these links, you support my blog and for that I say thank you in advance!
