Dividend report May 2018

May has been one long party. The weather here up north has been superb, and the dividends pile up. Most of the annual-paying stocks in the Nordic market pay out their dividend this month, providing my portfolio with dividends in the four-figures!

Dividend report April 2018

This month has been more hectic than usual. My TODO list is a nightmare, and I've had trouble with my work-life balance. But there are also positive things happening. The weather is finally getting more warmer here up north, and my portfolio shows a three digit year-over-year growth!
