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!
It's been over a year since I shifted my investment strategy towards a more long-term goal. I used to chase hot stocks, but are now much more comfortable aiming for a stable growth. So I thought it's time to revisit what I want to achieve with this strategy.
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!
Things are looking good at the moment. The busy-season is coming to an end and easter holiday is just around the corner. The dividends are also treating me well, with March yielding a strong year-over-year growth of 71.6%.
I bought my first shares of Statoil back in January, and now it's time to collect my first dividend payment. But Statoil offer a dividend reinvestment plan, which I now need to decide if I should sign up for or not.
