Well another update on the portfolio, still need a catchy name for it. These last few months were pretty easy on the portfolio front. Mostly added ETF’s and some handpicked stocks as well. The ETF’s are pretty straight forward and the same ones I bought in the last few months.
A German company again and this time it’s the Deutsche Pfandbriefbank , a bank mostly active in real estate lending and investment lending. It has been a steady supplier of dividend and my first banking investment so far. The expected amount of dividend is 1,05 euro per share. And with a current share-rice of 12,93 this is a nice percentage indeed.
So a short portfolio update again, because of the still ongoing re balancing towards more ETF’s. See you next time!
Goodbye October, another month has passes, as usual the dividend update. Compared to October last year the dividend payments are up 32%. Which is due to the build up in the portfolio and the fact that some positions are paying dividend for the first time.
Next year the increase will be slightly less big. De exchange rates keep doing what they do and I am working on getting more balance and more payments in Euro instead of dollars. As I pay all my bills in Euro. Sounds smart right ? Times are strange with the continious low interest rates and according to all the experts they will continue to be low.
Apparently the banks can handle these low rates , well see. Anyway the numbers, see you next month.
