New purchases July 2018 II

To celebrate my vaccation I've bought some more stocks. Viva la France! Red wine and cheese. Compared to a normal month it feels like I'm bleeding money.
  • 20 T for $ 32.31 for a yield of 6.19 %.
  • 5 SO for $ 47.23 for a yield of 5.01 %.
  • 5 O for $ 55.26 for a yield of 4.77 %.

I've updated my portfolio and as always it can be found here. It is still broken, but pretty accurate.

My goal of eating less sugar has gone as planned. It might be that I've just substituted it with nice meals and wine, but vaccation is vaccation.

New purchase July 2018

I've made some new purchases. This is my first day of vacation so I will be a bit more brief.
  • 9 Telenor for 171.05 NOK for a yield of 4.56 %.
  • 10 Equinor for 215 NOK for a yield of 3.48 %.
Then the spin off of Veoneer from Autoliv has been completed. I received 5 shares each worth 357 SEK. During the first dags of trading it has gone up around 15 %.

I've updated my portfolio and as always it can be found here. Note: Im unable to get stock prices from Swedish, Finish and Norwegian stocks so the speadsheet is a bit broken.

Monthly goal July 2018

My goal of spending more time with friends have been fun. Basically the changes I've made is calling some old friends that I haven't talked to in a while and also taking two trips visiting friends. In June I'm having a vacation and then this will automatically also be done because I'm planning on staying a week at my parents place and then travel with friends. I've also continued with getting up at six on weekday mornings. I haven't really been as productive as in May, but I've managed to still be the first one in the office.

For July I'm going to reduce my refined sugar intake. Basically I'm putting a ban on spending for items with added sugar. So no soda, candy and cookies. I used to live like this when I was a student and didn't really miss sugar then. For me it is really easy to get in to the habit of eating candy and it doesn't feel good. In a way I think it might some sort of self-medication for feeling lonely, but is not a long term solution for anything.

Goal July: Eat less sugar.
Goal June: Spend time/talk to a friend each day outside of work. Done!
Goal May: Get up at six every morning. Done!
Goal April: Read at least four books during the month. Done!
Goal March: Walk at least 10 000 steps each day. Failed!
Goal February: Practice at least ten minutes of yoga each day. Done!
Goal January: Only eat vegetarian food. Done!

Income/expense June 2018

I'm about to go on vacation and that has made my spending this month a bit higher than normal, but I've managed to go on two weekend trips and also book a flight back home to my dear parents. I also suspect that my spending in July is going to be significantly higher than normal.

Expenses: 14 600 SEK
Income:  35 800 SEK
Savings rate: 59.22 %
Dividend/Expense rate: 8.04 %

Compared to last June I've doubled my dividend/expense rate even though I spend almost 70 % more. This is the first month of 2018 where I have a savings rate below 60 %.

A summary of my savings rate can be found via this page.

Dividend June 2018

These are the dividends I received in June. 
  • SDIV 34.47 SEK
  • SRET 33 SEK
  • SPFF 58.78 SEK 
  • SDEM 117.38 SEK
  • ED 37.92 SEK
  • ADM 29.26 SEK
  • EMR 41.89 SEK
  • JNJ 38.86 SEK
  • TGT 107.09 SEK
  • MCD 45.06 SEK
  • SO 52.03 SEK
  • O 65.96 SEK 
  • PFE 29.83 SEK
  • INTC 39.47 SEK
  • WFC 20.53 SEK
  • KHC 93.91 SEK
  • AFL 27.37 SEK
  • VFC 36.94 SEK
  • UN01 150.81 SEK
  • BAYN 54 SEK
  • ALIV-SDB 27.28 SEK
  • ALA 61.19 SEK
  • EIF 30.59 SEK
  • AD 40.74 SEK
24 different companies paid me dividends for a total of 1174.36 SEK. Compared to last year the increase was around 280 %. When I look at the year of year increases they are great, but I'm contributing a lot of cash every month. Over time I hope that reinvested dividends will make up a ever larger portion of my monthly contributions.

Autoliv has also completed (technically on trading starts on the second of June) its spin-off of its electronic part into Veoneer. I'm a strong believer of automated vehicles and Veoneer is a big player on that market. Concerning dividends I'm not really sure how I will be affected. Veoneer has not announced that they will pay any dividend, but I haven't found any information regarding Autolivs future dividends.

New purchase June 2018 III

I've made some new purchase and I'm a bit ashamed to say that I made a mistake and sold 10 shares of T for $ 31.7. I like that I can purchase stocks on my phone, but it is a bit too easy to make mistakes. Anyhow, one new company Hormel.
  • 15 HRL for $ 36.53 for a yield of 2.06 %.
  • 10 KO for $ 43.53 for a yield of 3.58 %.
  • 4 MO for $ 56.97 for a yield of 4.91 %.
  • 15 GE for $ 12.79 for a yield of 3.75 %.
My goal of spending time with friends every day has gone great. I'v met some new friends and also found some colleagues that share a lot of the same interest as me. So we've been on a hike and also practiced some swimming in the ocean.

I've updated my portfolio and as always it can be found here.
