Hello dear dividend friends. I hope you are healthy! I report again about my dividends and in the month of March I have also reached a small record or milestone. What exactly it has to do with it, you will learn in the following blog post!
Dividends in March 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.
March was a really nice month in terms of dividends and I was able to reach a small milestone. In fact 301,90 EUR, so I received more than EUR 300 in dividends for the first time. 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.
- B. Riley Financial
First place in March goes to a newcomer B. Riley Financial, which I bought into my portfolio in February. Due to the special dividend, I received a whopping 50,32 EUR.
In 2nd place is Enbridge. I was paid a quarterly dividend of the equivalent of 48,71 EUR by the Canadian pipeline operator.
- The India Fund
Just behind Enbridge, a CEF was added in March. At the equivalent of 42,05 EUR, The India Fund brought me a nice sum. As you can see from the name, I use it to represent India as a region.
- Imperial Brands
The 4th place is Imperial Brands, a well-known tobacco company. Here there was 34,09 EUR without tax deduction.
- BHP Group
Last but not least there were 21,12 EUR from raw materials giant BHP.
There are many other and smaller dividends, which you can see in the screenshot above.
- The India Fund declared a dividend increase from 0,50 USD to 0,58 USD per share (+16%)
- Franco-Nevada declared a dividend increase from 0,26 USD to 0,30 USD per share (+15,4%)
- Innovative Industrial Properties declared a dividend increase from 1,24 USD to 1,32 USD per share(+6,5%)
- British American Tobacco declared a dividend increase from 0,526 GBP to 0,539 GBP per share (+2,5%)
- Realty Income declared a dividend increase from 0,2345 USD to 0,235 USD per share (+0,2%)
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!
