A while ago I started the cash-or-trash series, where new opportunities were screened. Also today I have pulled the old magnifying glass out of the closet for a close up on an old friend. This share was a part of my portfolio years ago, but kept on decreasing dividends (and kept on doing so ever since I abandoned this ship). ARR and no, this is not about talk-like-a-pirate-day. See what’s up?

A short week this was! Ascension day has changed this Thursday into a day off for the Dutch working class. Early on in the week something funny happened: all of a sudden and without any notice upfront the visitor counter of my blog kept quiet. For a looong time. Well, lucky for me that this blog is not entirely build to create an income (although I did make another 0.50$ last week, thanks so much!). The other surprise was the amount of dividends totalling my month of May till date. A 66% increase (as opposed to last 05-’16) is SIGNIFICANT at the least.

Another week of ups and downs. We started off on sunday with our little babyJ being ill. Where ill kids always are a poor sight, no matter no big or small. So a little less caring about anything else and a lot more focusing on our little man brought me to Wednesday (all of a sudden!) where he appeared to be “As fit as a fiddle and ready for love.” Just saying, this expression exists! And to complete this day as a cherry on a cake: Royal Dutch Shell dividends! But then...

Well rested and with a clear mind this is me posting the 96th blog update already. Having spent a wonderful holiday sipping Sangrias at one of the Canary Islands, the focus is brought back. A great advantage of going on holiday with a small kiddo (who still need their afternoon sleep hours): Read more!

Month of April: closed. A site that has been running 3-figure visitor numbers (daily) steady for the past months. An average dividend distribution that climbed to 70USD per month. Holiday season coming up. And they’re only some highlights!

How odd, just now that this calculation sheet is working for the exported data that my current broker spits out… I found a cheaper house dealer! Not yet talking logos brand names here, but most definitely I’m going to get rid of the green. In this case, not referring to green as money (unless we’re talking transaction fees)!
