Ordinary Dividend Income 2022/10


This month, I received ordinary dividends from 8 companies for a total of 1,011 USD. That’s about 500 USD more compared to last year’s October when I received 485 USD in ordinary dividends. I am of course happy with that increase, which is mainly due to the additional money I invested since then.

See the chart below showing how my ordinary dividend income develops since I started my All-Weather Portfolio in May 2020.

Ordinary Dividends In October 2022


It was the first time I received an ordinary dividend from the 🇸🇪Swedish REIT Castellum. This is a stock I have been following a lot and already reviewed before. 30% withholding tax was deducted, in line with Sweden’s withholding tax. I sent a withholding tax reduction claim fax to my broker but seems this did not go through.  

In regards to Store Capital (STOR), I expect this is one or maybe the last dividend I will receive, as it is bought out by a Singaporean group.

I was again quite active and used the depressed stock prices to add to my core holdings. In total, I bought stocks worth

Oct 25 🇺🇸 PG $3,846
Oct 26 🇬🇧 Reckitt $3,409
Oct 28 🇬🇧 Rio Tinto $2,650

How To Grow Ordinary Dividend Income?


My strategy remains on buying stocks that yield good dividends.

With the $75,000 US I bought stocks with in September, it will take a few months before I’ll see an increase in my dividend income.

In general, I feel the markets priced it a lot of negativity already. Can the stock market still go down from here? Of course, it can, and most likely it will.


Investment Plan For November


I keep on focusing on buying buy-and-hold forever stocks such the AT&T dividend stock, P&G, or forms like Franco Nevada, in my opinion, the best gold stock in the world. I have no doubt these companies will outlive me. My investment time horizon is in decades, not years or even months.

By focusing on the ordinary dividends I will receive in the years to come from these excellent businesses, I am super relaxed and chilled about whatever the stock market has in store for us in the coming weeks and months.


Other Passive Income


Besides the above-listed dividends of 1,011 USD, I also earned 11,616 USD in other forms of passive income. In other words, the income I generated from ordinary dividends in October represents approx. 9% of my total passive income.
