Portfolio sells

In October I moved to selling the last fund currently in my portfolio. I made the following sale.

  • Lindell Train Global equity.  Sold 239 units returning £2700 to my account. I still hold 4930 in this fund. Due to the global market downturn I don’t see myself selling an more units in November.

Portfolio buys

In October I increased two of my holdings.

  • 53 shares of Intel Corporation (INTC).  This takes me holding to 99 shares with a current value of £3525
  • 89 shares of Vanguard UK GILT ETF (VGOV).  This takes my holding in this share to 176 shares with a value of £3968

Dividends

October was a great month dividend wise. Six of my holdings paid out this month

  • Vanguard All-World ETF(VWRL). £20.50
  • Vanguard All-World High Dividend ETF(VHYL).  £33.56

I am quite happy with the dividends this month. I received a total of £110.91 in October.

Total dividends for 2018 are £298.95 this is £270 more than at the same point last year.

Dividends look like they will drop off next month. I am forecasting around £22 for November.

My dividends received now passed another outgoing goal.  I could now pay for Prime/Netflix and Audible now with dividends from the portfolio.
