As anticipated December was a somewhat slow month for my portfolio. Beside my 4 holdings which pays a monthly dividend I only received dividends from two other companies. But in total December came out in three digits, which is much appreciated. Maybe I'll never see a two digit month again?

Dividends received this month:

Date Stock Total
12/01    SXCP $59.40
12/01    AMSC $88.00
12/13    O $9.33
12/22    SMHD $23.92
12/22    REML $5.47
12/22    MRRL $4.64

I only bought one stock this month, but in dollar amount I'm pretty close to my investment rate in other months this year. I bought Veidekke due to it's appealing yield. The price has declined roughly 25% this year. It's a saying that the market is always right, but I must admit that I do not understand the reasoning behind this vast drop.

Transactions this month:

Stock Cost Shares Total
VEI $10.79 290 $3,130

The graph below illustrates my dividend income per month this year. December is slightly below average, but as mentioned at least in three digits.

Total dividends received in 2017 amounts to $2,819 (I could not break the $3,000 bar). I will write a more thorough post about my experience from 2017 and my expectations and goals for 2018, but first I'm off for a two weeks holiday. So with that I wish everyone a:

Happy new year!

Very nice! I can see that AMSC is helping you a lot. I´ve seen people talk about the company before, but is the dividend safe? Anyhow, go rock 2018!

Happy New Year!

I would say the dividend is quite safe as long as the Jones Act is still in effect. But I guess this could quickly change if there was a shift in the politics in US. So I'll keep an eye on their business environment, but would regard the dividend as safe for now.

Thanks for commenting :)
