March 2016 Dividend Update

IMG_20151110_161537865March Update slid into April because some of the dividends that I was meant to collect last month were effectively paid a bit late… Anyhow here it goes!

As per previous months the dividend growth LOOKS nothing short of stellar, the reality is that it’s all pretty normal as this year the Portfolio is fully deployed while last year it wasn’t.

New studies are bringing me to consider trading options to support the buy side of the portfolio and maybe gather some side income, but I am not yet ready for that, so the study continues… πŸ˜›

Here is the list of theΒ stocks involved in March:

AWR – USD 7.75
WFC – USD 21.23
JNJ – USD 21.23
ADM – USD 10.38
CVX – USD 22.88
EMR – USD 19.42
MMM – USD 20.95
MCD – USD 7.84
O – USD 3.12
ED – USD 17.28
LON:ULVR – GBP 18.72
AMS:UL – EUR 25.12
LON:BP – GBP 9.86
TROW – USD 8.83
LON:RDSB – GBP 35.17

    1. Ciao Luca,

      Nothing to envy… Let’s say that I had money saved after almost 17 years of work (I started relatively early), so it took me one year to invest them all , little by little… In real terms (total returns), considering savings added to the PF and investments and all, I am almost breaking even, at present day (but currencies are killing total returns there…).
      So to reply to your question: it took me 17 years to get there, but only with 1 year of Dividend investing πŸ˜›

      Ciao ciao



  1. Great monthly dividends there – I hope to build mine up too, though ultimately only really aiming for around Β£3k a year, just for some extra income.

    Keep up the great work!


  2. congratulation on your dividend income πŸ™‚

    start as early as possible with your options trading πŸ™‚ the next time you want to buy shares use the short put πŸ™‚

    keep it up!

    best regards


    1. Ciao ED!
      Welcome to the blog and thanks for stopping by. Options are on the books, I need to start a new position with a professional trader, but here the slowdown is occurring, mostly because tax returns in Italy are terribly complicated and the good brokers do not offer the “automagic service” that other brokers offer to report correctly to the government… So it will take a little bit of time to get it sorted, but selling naked puts and even some covered calls are definitely on the books… πŸ™‚
      Ciao and thanks for stopping by again!
