December 2017 Dividend Income Summary

The last month of the year has come to an end.

In this blogpost I will list my dividend income for the month of December 2017.

In December I received a total of $193.22 in dividend income.

The following stocks paid me a dividend:

Unilever (UN): $18.31
Royal Dutch Shell (RD): $34.51
Ford Motor (F): $20.40
Boeing (BA): $12.07
Pfizer (PFE): $13.60
IBM (IBM): $12.75
3M (MMM): $9.99
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ): $10.71
Microsoft (MSFT): $10.71
NextEra Energy (NEE): $8.36
Realty Income (O): $4.50
Qualcomm (QCOM): $14.53
Coca Cola Company (KO): $12.58
Lockheed Martin (LMT): $10.20

Some of the stocks mentioned above paid me dividend in euros. For reporting purposes, I calculated these back to dollars using the closing exchange rate of 1 January 2018: 1.20151 (€1 = $1.20151).

All dividends are after dividend taxes of 15%, but I can reclaim this via the dutch IRS, so there's an added bonus there when I do my taxes for 2017 (in March 2018).

Last year December I received $93.94. That means that this years December dividend income is a 105.68% increase from last year December. Nice!

Here's the updated dividend income graph:


I can't believe what an amazing year it has been! December was the best month with a very nice dividend income of $192.22. And that in only 2 years of investing! Let's keep this snowball rolling! :D
