Hello and welcome to my September 2018 dividend portfolio report. This portfolio is where I invest for mainly dividend returns, but also with some capital growth. In this report I will go over any changes that I made to my portfolio for the month of September. I will also detail how the portfolio performed. If you would like to look at the previous months report you can find it here
In September I again continued the work of reducing my holdings in funds. In this month I only made one sale. This reduced my holding in that fund down to zero. My sells for September were:
- 5,912 units of Standard Life Inv Global Smaller Companies Class S. With this sale I have reduced my holding in the fund to zero. This sale released £7,136.65 that I was able to move into other investments.
No other sells were made in the month of September. I now only have one fund remaining in my protfolio which I will slowly reduce over the coming months.
With the capital released from the sale of the units in Standard Life I was able to increase three of my holdings this month. I made the following buys.
- 11 shares of Apple Inc. This takes me to 27 shares in Apple with a current value of £4680
- 83 shares of Bank of America. This takes me to 173 shares in Bank of America with a value of £3906
- 23 shares of Microsoft Corp. This takes me to 49 shares of Microsoft with a value of £4300
A little less on dividends this month compared to August. I received dividends from the following investments in September.
- Intel Corp (INTC) £8.98 ($11.70)
- Vanguard UK Guilt ETF (VGOC) £2.34 ($3.05)
- Microsoft Corp (MSFT) £7.03 ($9.16)
The total dividends revived in September were £18.35 ($23.91)
My current total dividends for 2018 are £188.04 ($245.01) which is £170 more than at the same point in 2017
I am forecasting a dividend income of £80.78 ($105) next month.
I reached a new goal from my dividend income this month. My dividends would now also cover my subscription to netflix.
Just a small growth in portfolio size for September. An increase of £206.09
