Results Q2 2018

Second quarter of 2018

Another quarter has passed. Let’s see what happened with the dividend machine in the second quarter of 2018 :

  • The machine produced a total of €1115 in dividends
  • Four additional purchases were made


Q2 brought € 1115 in dividends spread over 47 dividend payments. Compared to the second quarter of 2017 (€1221)  this meant a decrease in dividend income of 9%. This can be explained by the fact that in May and June last year National Grid (NG.L) issued a reverse stock split and a special dividend. For the dividend machine this meant € 163 in special dividend income. Without this special dividend the dividend machine generated around 5% in additional income compared to 2017.

The dividend totals, in Euro, per month were :

month dividend(EUR)
April   412
