Monthly Income With Dividends In March 2024

Welcome to a new report of my Dividend Diary on the TEV Blog. Here, I report the development of a cash flow-oriented investment approach that focuses on generating a passive income through dividends. Against this background, the goal is not to outperform the market but to put food on the table through a regular income via dividends.

With the Dividend Diary, I document how a cash-flow investment approach can be part of well-balanced 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 they provide a cash flow without me going to work. Additionally, they are an essential pillar for conversion since they can be reinvested to generate even more income in the future. That is the Theory. Now let’s get down to practice.

  • Pfizer (42.16 EUR)

Stocks I sold in March

Due to their lack of business performance and dividend increases, I sold all of my shares in Henkel. This is part of my current strategy adjustment, where I am trying to streamline my portfolio a bit. You can read more about the reasons behind it in this article about my investment mistakes and the learnings I gained. I have allocated the freed-up capital to the current savings plans listed below.
