2020 is now well underway and with the Coronavirus swooping across the globe infecting hundreds, the market is selling off all of the gains it made this year, and then some. The majority of stocks have gone quite a bit lower. However, thanks to their defensive nature, REITs were able to remain relatively steady.
May 2019 was the month of the Belgian and European elections, it was also the month in which lots of Belgian companies paid out their dividends. Yeah!
Thanks to this month it finally makes a bit of sense to update my Milestones. I now have 83.88 EUR in dividends which is a 41.94% progress towards my 200 EUR target for this year.
Of course, there are still some payouts to go and with the last order active for SPYD (US dividend aristocrats) I should reach my 200 EUR targets this year. It’s only a handful of euro’s, but I enjoy receiving money for basically doing nothing.
I expect to receive a bit of dividend in July, August, October, and November.
