Bought 26 shares of Verizon (VZ) today for $47.92 per share including transaction fees.

Yahoo Finance: “Verizon Communications Inc. provides communications, information, and entertainment products and services to consumers, businesses, and governmental agencies worldwide.

Hello world!

Introduction

Welcome at dividend-machine.nl. On this website i will share how i construct my dividend machine. I was already investing in stocks before, but without any plan or scheme. Besides, constantly monitoring the latest stock prices became a bit boring. So I decided to become a value investor: less trading and more focus on the long run from now on (March 2014) In order to complete the picture i also added the first 3 months of 2014.

Goals

I defined three goals for 2014 :

  • Dividend. I want to receive at least € 600 of dividends, after taxes. Stock or cashdividend are both fine here.
  • Value. The value of the portfolio needs to be at least € 25,000 at 31 December 2014. This means additional contributions.
  • Diversification. The amount of funds must be at least 15 by the end of the year. Besides : not all holdings need to be in Euro’s.

Portfolio

The portfolio of early January 2014 is listed here.
