In the last month of the year 2015 we received a total of €264 of dividends.
We had to cope with two dividend cuts 🙁 and were given one dividend raise 🙂
One addition to the dividend machine was made.
A total of €264 of dividend was received this Month. Compared to December 2014 this meant an increase of approximately 33%. Currently December 2015 ranks third in dividends after September 2015 and July 2015.
Prosafe (PRS.OL) suspended paying dividends: “the Board has decided to temporarily suspend dividend payments”. So no dividends were received from Norway this month. Since the Board indicated the temporary nature of the suspension I will not sell at the moment.
Textainer (TGH) slashed their dividends with almost 49%.
Fortunately other companies did not have to go that route.
The following table provides an overview of all the dividends received this month:
|Johnson and Johnson||JNJ||$10.84|
