March 2018 Dividend Income Summary

The first quarter has come to an end.

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

In March I received a total of $198.31 in dividend income.

The following stocks paid me a dividend:

Unilever (UN): $18.75
Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A): $27.95
Ford (F): $38.08
Pfizer (PFE): $14.45
Boeing (BA): $14.53
Microsoft (MSFT): $10.71
3M (MMM): $11.56
International Business Machines (IBM): $12.75
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ): $10.71
NextEra Energy (NEE): $9.43
Realty Income (O): $4.66
Qualcomm (QCOM): $14.53
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 2 April 2018: 1.23045 (€1 = $1.23045).

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 March I received $96.48. That means that this years March dividend income is a 105.54% increase from last year March. Awesome!

Here's the updated dividend income graph:


Purchases / sales

In March I made one purchase. On 21 March I bought 50 shares of Williams-Sonoma (WSM) for $54.21 per share, for a total of $2,710.75 including commission.

There were no sales.
