81. Week 8, Dividend status update 2017

Another quick update for this week’s dividend distributions! I’m really happy with the way my dividends tracker is performing. Having said that, I’m planning on making an empty version1.0 to be used for fellow investors using the same investment package as I am currently working with. This will be material for a later post, because there is a lot more to it. First of all, let’s get down to the numbers. Continue reading for the (preliminary) numbers for week 8!

80. Week 7 Poll outcome

A while ago (last week) I posted a question out of curiosity. Because I find it interesting to listen to other people, rather than playing the lead myself, I thought to make use of my 600+ followers on Twitter. A great thanks to all (three) voters who took the time to click twice!

79. Cash-Or-Trash: TerraForm Global

On the lookout for great investment opportunities I came across an interesting gem that might just be worth taking a closer look. Taking the effort to write a post about it while hoping to share some of this new found intel. Or, to post a bright yellow marker as a warning.

78. Week 7, Dividend status update

The past few days have been extraordinary. The blog has been performing really well, and it really allows me to set some thoughts aside. Get my ducks in a row and live happily ever after. Structured and organised. Without any doubt, starting a blog has really helped me in gaining better insight of what my portfolio is actually doing. And whether it is making any money. Since my investments are 100% self-supporting (no cash top-ups were performed in the past years, only 1 major withdrawal) monitoring performance is really important!

77. Business Update Week 7

Having spotted an interesting article a while ago about a young entrepreneur having invested just a couple of bucks in some items that he found to have a large margin. The simple comparison between Chinese sales prices and sales prices at his end of the planet resulted in a flourishing business model. Now, for quite some time I have become an entrepreneurotic. Continuously looking for side hustle and making extra cash. That’s why I figured it is time to put some thoughts on paper on becoming a Reseller of imported goods.

76. February Forecast

Starting with a bang:
This week, the forecast for my february dividend payments has grown to a stunning 68Euro. Not entirely putting this as a surprise, I have been paying close attention to what some of the folks around me have done. It’s great to see that there is so many colleagues out there that keep track of their portfolio of monthly paying dividend shares. For educational and entertainment purposes.

75. Week 6, Dividend status update 2017

Having modified my dividend calculation sheet again I finally have found a way to easily subtract weekly updates from my dumping place of exported data. Too bad that it looks like there are no distributions logged this week! However, the forecast does look promising (even for a February, being a shy month in distributions..)

74 Week 5, Dividend status update 2017

A great look back at the month of January! Being in this comfortable position, it is important to keep momentum. However, there’s no dividends paid this week. So far for the “bad” news. Another update for the dividend tracker (to also be able to check up on weekly updates rather than only monthly) has reminded me of making backups of my work.

73. January 2017 Portfolio update

Being in the process of blog-optimisation, I have applied some mitigation to comments received on earlier posts (Thanks GT!). In the meantime I’ve lost some of my shyness when it comes to absolute figures. The total invested value is quite a significant part of the total picture in a portfolio update. It puts all earnings in perspective.
