Dividend Income Update May 2019

Hello again, time for one of my favorite posts of each month, the dividend income update. It is now already June, one of the strongest dividend months of the year. But May was not so bad either, you can really see that it is dividend season in Europe. In total I received 272.11 EUR or 304.79 USD compared to a dividend income of 186.48 EUR in 2018.

Why am I actually publishing my monthly income result?

Well to be honest for me it is more or less to write down my progress and to stay motivated in the end. In the last weeks I was looking at my results from three years ago, and I have to say I made quite a progress in the meantime. It is still a long journey to reach my goal of a yearly dividend income of 10 000 EUR but it is more than doable you just need the patience and this is what I want to show you with my monthly dividend income updates. So have fun reading my April Update…

Overview dividend income May

My total dividend income in April was 272.11 EUR or 304.79 USD, which is an increase of 45.92% increase compared to the last year. This is my seond best result and mostly coming from my one time payers Daimler AG, BASF and BAWAG. Compared to the last years May dividend income the austrian postal service paid its dividend already in April. The other decreases are caused by selling those stocks during the last year.


My average monthly dividend income in 2016 was at58.86 EUR, in 2017 it was at 120.58 EUR, for 2018 it was at 137.86 EUR and in 2019 it is at the moment at 195.52 EUR, so already higher than last year :)..

My projected full year dividend income is now at  2 387.59 EUR or 2 674.34 USD that means I have now an average of 198.97 EUR per month.

As you know my goal is to reach a full year projection of 2 750 EUR, so I am still short of 372 EUR but I am very optimistic to reach that goal.

Again I have to say that investing in Dividend Stocks, ETF’s or whatever which is for the long run really pays you back. It is not that difficult you just need to focus on the long run. I am quite sure in the mid term a lot of us might have a portfolio in the deep reds. But this is time where we should buy and not sell. Investing is for the long term. I am now into that for three years and my snowball already starts to get bigger and bigger month by month. I am already curious where I am in 5 years from now on. It is just important to keep in mind:
