- In Dividend Income
August has just flown by! There is not much in dividends. We take this opportunity to diversify the eToro portfolio a bit and set new goals.
Here is how the stats are broken down from the companies that paid me in August.
• MSFT - Microsoft : $0.29
• MCD - McDonalds : $0.41
• Forex - NZD/CHF $0.74
August dividends add up to $1.44, which represents an increase of 336.36% from last year, when I made $0.33.
It's a nice increase, but it's still the worst month for now in dividends. The same month last year, I merely had Microsoft and I only added McDonalds and the NZD/CHF pair at the end of the year. I understood later that this trade on the Forex was a mistake. I am hesitant to close the position and take the losses.
I added CSCO - Cisco to my eToro portfolio (1.09 shares). The Technology sector now represents 21.90% of my portfolio.
Below are some charts from my Dividend income page to better visualize the results.
Total dividend income 2018 : $30.09, increase of 136.56% from last year.
