My Dividends

My own dividends

Since I follow the dividend strategy, it is of course also nice to see how the dividend payments have developed.

Here I will show my dividends received and this in each case monthly. So that it is better comparable with each other, the dividends are indicated in each case in gross euro. Due to the tax-free amount at the beginning of the year, the value would otherwise be distorted and a representation would be wrong.

How have my dividends developed?

How my dividends develop

With my portfolio I would like to build up a regular side income through dividends. Currently, the dividends are of course always directly reinvested to take advantage of the compound interest effect.

The investment period should be at least 20 years and more. Mainly this investment is intended for my retirement provision. However, I started only in October 2020 and thus actually very late. From this point of view, I have already wasted 20 years and could therefore already be many further. But at least I took the plunge and started investing my money in stocks and ETFs.

I try to build up my stock portfolio according to the dividend payments. The tax exempt amount of 801 euros is of course submitted and will certainly not be exceeded the first two years with the distributions (but already exceeded in the first year).

Why dividends are so interesting

In good and healthy companies, dividends are paid out repeatedly and regularly. Depending on the size of your portfolio, this can make the cash register ring. With useful tools like DivvyDiary, dividends can be planned very well in advance. So you can also see in detail how the dividends of individual companies have developed over time and hopefully increased. By regularly increasing the dividends, the own cash flow also increases, even if no further investments were made in the portfolio.

If the payout ratio is not too high, good companies will pay dividends even if the economy as a whole is not doing so well. Here then the time plays a very large role. the longer I own such a share, the larger also the dividends received. This is due to the dividend growth and in addition, especially in the first few years, the dividends received are reinvested again and again.

It is very motivating when the dividends keep increasing. If you’re smart about it, in 10 or 20 years you may be able to convert your full-time job into a part-time position. The dividends will then replenish the money. Or really think long-term in the direction of retirement. If you keep it up for 30 or 40 years and reinvest all dividends directly, you will have a very good monthly additional income when you retire.

However, dividend hunters should avoid one mistake in any case. In the case of dividend stocks, do not use the dividend yield as the only factor for buying a stock. Always look to see whether the company is really economically sound and can finance the dividends from current profits without any problems. A high dividend yield can therefore be an alarm signal (but does not have to be – see REITs and BDCs). So always take a close look at the company in question and then possibly buy shares in it.
