Updated graph

Here's the updated dividend income graph:

Dividend-Income

All dividends are after dividend taxes of 15% or 20% (MDT), but I can reclaim this via the dutch IRS, so there's an added bonus there when I do my taxes for 2018 (in March 2019).

Purchases / sales

In April I didn't make any purchases. In May I made three purchases. On 24 May I bought:

  • 20 shares of PepsiCo (PEP) for $100.26 per share, for a total of $2,005.25
  • 20 shares of Altria (MO) for $55.84 per share, for a total of $1,116.85
  • 15 shares of Philip Morris (PM) for $80.76 per share, for a total of $1,211.38

There were no sales.
