June 2018 Dividend Income Summary

The second quarter has come to an end.

In this blogpost I will list my dividend income for the month of June 2018.

In June I received a total of $199.53 in dividend income.

The following stocks paid me a dividend:

Unilever (UN): $19.26
Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A): $27.93
Ford (F): $20.40
Pfizer (PFE): $14.45
Boeing (BA): $14.53
International Business Machines (IBM): $13.34
3M (MMM): $11.56
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ): $11.47
Microsoft (MSFT): $10.71
NextEra Energy (NEE): $9.43
Realty Income (O): $4.67
Qualcomm (QCOM): $15.81
Lockheed Martin (LMT): $10.20
Pepsico (PEP): $15.77

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 14 June 2018: 1.17016 (€1 = $1.17016).

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 2018 (in March 2019).

Last year June I received $115.18. That means that this years June dividend income is a 73.23% increase from last year June. Awesome!

Here's the updated dividend income graph:


Purchases / sales

In June I made one purchase. On 22 June I bought 60 shares of British American Tobacco (BATS) for £38.52 per share, for a total of £2,311.40 including commission. In dollars, that would be roughly $3,057.97.

This is the second time I bought shares in BATS. The stock price has dropped quite significantly in the last few months, so I decided to double down on it.

There were no sales in June.

How was your month? Got some nice juicy dividends as well? Make sure to leave a comment.
