Results Q3 2018

Results of the third quarter of 2018

The summer is over and so is the third quarter.  About time to check how the dividend machine kept on producing dividends.  During the summer I found the olive tree in the picture above. It occurred to me that the dividend machine is a bit like a tree : you need to plant the tree and take care of it way before you get the first produce.

  • The dividend machine cranked out a total of €851 in dividends
  • Six additional purchases were made


In the third quarter of 2018 the dividend machine yielded  €851. Compared to the same quarter in 2017 this meant an increase of 25%.

The dividend totals, in Euro, per month were :

month 2018 2017 increase
July 215 156 38%
August 202 108 86%
September 433 414 5%


Check the dividend page for an overview of all the dividends.
