Hello everyone. Like the P2P portfolio update for May, the update on my dividend income for May is also delayed. Unfortunately, there is a lot going on with me at the moment! Anyway, May even came close to the super April. You can find out which stocks paid me a dividend in the blog post. Have fun reading!
Dividends in May 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.
Also in May, some German companies in the portfolio paid out their dividends. Therefore, it was actually almost enough for May to beat April in terms of cashflow. 449,14 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.
First place goes to Fresenius SE at 67,69 EUR. Here I hold 103 shares and a few fractional ones. In addition, I regularly write covered calls on FRE.
- B. Riley Financial
The 2nd place goes to B. Riley Financial. There was another special dividend here, which is why the whole thing is lush at 41,81 EUR.
- Hamborner REIT
My conservative investment in Hamborner REIT yields with 38,41 EUR.
36,99 EUR I got from BASF.
Last but not least I got 36,34 EUR from HeidelbergCement.
There are many other and smaller dividends, which you can see in the screenshot above.
- Sysco increases its dividend from 0,45 USD to 0,47 USD per share (+4,4%)
- American Tower increases its dividend from 1,24 USD to 1,27 USD per share (+2,4%)
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!
