Dividend Diary – My Monthly Income From Dividends

Welcome to the Dividend Diary of the TEV blog, in which I document my monthly passive income with dividends. Here you can find out which companies have generated juicy cash flow for me each month. Besides, I analyze how the month has performed compared to the previous year. In the best case, my dividend income has increased. I also want to document how I have invested in new companies that will increase my future cash flow. 

As you know, I take care of my wealth management. To keep things simple, I have built three pillars:

  • Active income.
  • Passive income.
  • Conversion.

Dividends fall into the last two categories. They are passive because I no longer have to work to receive the payments. Furthermore, they also contribute to the conversion because I reinvest the dividends and thus increase my passive income through dividends for the future.

My dividend income this month:

This month I have received payments (before taxes) from the following companies:

  • AT&T (23.4 USD/18.25 EUR)
  • General Mills (16.66 USD/13 EUR)
  • Bayer (61 EUR)
  • Munich Re (58.8 EUR)

The total dividend income in May was: 399 EUR.

Dividend Check

Now let’s see how the performance was compared to the previous year. Last year I received only EUR 289 in dividends in May. This represents an increase of almost 40 percent. In total, I have received almost EUR 800 in dividends this year. And all that money came in despite Corona and the problematic economic development. So I am very happy with this development!

Past and future stock purchases

In May, I bought more shares of great companies so that the dividends will continue to rise in the future. In May I bought shares in the following companies:

  • Henkel (11)
  • VF Corp. (14)
  • MSCI USA Financials (35)
  • Unilever (10)

I did not sell any shares in May. Also in June, there are again some additional purchases of shares on my plan. I am relatively flexible here. Either I buy new positions or I increase my shares in existing investments. The following companies are on my watch list:

  • Iron Mountain (IRM)
  • Microsoft (MSFT)
  • AB Inbev (BUD)
  • Wirecard (WRCDF)
  • PepsiCo (PEP)
  • Taiwan Semiconductor (TSM)
