Dividends Series Q2 2017

Here’s my dividend report for Q2 2017.

A grand total of £490.20 bringing the cumulative total for this year to £787.61. In fact, it is already more than the grand total for the last 3 quarters for 2016. Something must be going right.

I am looking forward towards the end of the year where I can sit down and crunch some numbers to calculate dividend yield and all that. See where how my portfolio is doing compared to various indices.

Meanwhile on the monthly savings front, decent but not great.

Monthly saving July

Again missing out on doing accounts for month of April.

June and July was a month of spending on trips abroad and attending functions which were enjoyable and also useful to catch up with other old friends.

I am missing out on writing regularly which is a bit of a shame. A combination of interest in other subjects, non financially related and travel and learning about life in general. Sometimes feeling that my writing is not up to scratch. All in all, basically less motivated to write. I might try to write some articles of these non-financial stuff if only to consolidate my thoughts and ideas least I forget them.

As FiL’s post on What he learnt from blogging puts it, perhaps I am not prepared enough and underestimated the effort required. I must say though, getting some feedback from others writing and having similar goals helps with the motivation.

Godspeed!
