Before we dig into the Dividend Income Summer Update, I want to talk a bit about how my summer has been. The summer of 2017 has been wonderful. On Saturday I turned 25 years old. I celebrating my day by doing a 15 hour hike with my family in the norwegian fjords. My dog at 11 was struggling a bit because of the previous hikes this week, but as always, he managed. (more…)
- Dividends received: 12
- Dividend Income for May 2017 landed on $322.76 or 2735 NOK
- Last year I got $215 in May, so the income stream from May is now 50 % higher.
- The dividend income was enough to pay for my whole gym membership twice, enough to cover my yearly phone bill two times or enough to cover 80 % of food budget for the month.
- Or even better, the dividend income for May was enough to pay for 35 super expensive, cold and fresh beers. If I wanted to, I could actually party for free every friday throughout the whole month of May!
Yesterday was one of the sunniest days here in Bergen, Norway. I had an offer to go on a date with a beautiful girl this saturday, but as any sane and reasonable 24-year-old in his best years, I followed my inner instinct. I politely declined, and chose to watch two old men almost close to 100 talking about finance, stocks, EBITDA and the future…..(cough). Yeeeeeeeh, let´s talk about my actions instead.
