March 2020 Dividend Income from the Dutch Dividend Series

We live in crazy times right now. With COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic on full swing. People are home right now; some are self-isolating while others are being required to be in lockdown. Not a day goes by without important news for the economy and financial markets. I think that the consequences of the corona crisis are enormous. Although the financial markets have already priced in a lot of bad news in the prices, I still think that we will see more sharp market fluctuations for a while.

 

Stay Home, Stay Safe

 

We are living in times we haven’t seen before. This is a little bit scary. We are all healthy and safe here and I hope all of my readers are currently safe and doing their part into keeping everybody safe including social distancing and personal hygiene. Let’s fight this together!

Although health is the most important thing, this series is about passive income. So, let’s take a look how we did.

 

March 2020

Although we live in crazy time, with my website I hope to inspire more people to start making passive income. By starting to make passive income, you will take control of your live. Passive income gives you the freedom of time! I think that time is our greatest asset. In fact, time is far more valuable than money in my opinion.

When you let your money work for you (instead of you working for money) you will have the flexibility that comes along with not having to struggle to make ends meet at the end of the month. As long as you can ensure that your passive income outpaces your monthly expenses, you’re free to spend your time as you choose.

With March behind us, the first quarter is in the books. And the last month of a quarter is normally a very good month. We have seen a couple of dividend slashes and dividend suspensions, by which our dividend income is affected. But we still see some good months in our community!

 

Co-production

Since last month this series is a co-production together with De Kleine Kapitalist (DKK). He writes the Dutch version and I the English version. DKK is very handy with IT-stuff and he made a web crawler to automatically collect all the data. This saves an enormous amount of time now that this process has been automated.

Thanks for all the positive feedback we got on this series! I really appreciate it! And if I look at my twitter feed (@twitter.com/Polliesdividend) I see a lot of people enjoy this Series. Keep sending me some love. And if you want to be included in this Series just sent an email to De Kleine Kapitalist (DKK) of Pollie@polliesdividend.com.

 

Passive income from the Dutch Dividend bloggers

Here is the February episode of the dividend Income from the Dutch Dividend Series. I’ve only included the bloggers that reported their dividend income on their website.

Financially in 10 years – € 1371.27 – Mr. Robot saw his portfolio dip very hard. He was in an emotional rollercoaster. But then he remembered he was in it for the long run. A smile came back when he saw his dividend came rolling in. 16 companies had paid him dividend. Congrats on this great month. He had a YoY increase of92.01%! Keep safe and keep up the good work!

Veelvoorminder – €20.45 – Veelvoorminder is focusing on stability and slowly growing his passive income stream. He received more dividend than last year’s March. So, it is fair to say that his strategy is working. He had a YoY increase of 181! Wow. Congrats!

I want Dividend – € 592.16 – His dividend income this month is up 41% compared to previous years. His outlook for this year declined from €6.010 last month to €5.207 now due to cancellations and cuts of dividend. So, the COVID-19 pandemic has a big effect on Erik’s passive income for this year. Keep Safe and Keep Investing!

Groeigeld – €190 – Mr Groeigeld has made this monthly dividend report with mixed feelings. First, because of the state of the world and the sick and the dead. Because how important is money in these times? Secondly, because his monthly report is mainly about dividends, and how sure is that now? It is therefore a monthly report without further expectations. In March he had a YoY of 10%. Keep Safe and Keep Investing!

De Kleine Kapitalist – € 45.89 – It was a very busy month with 14 transactions for DKK and 8 companies who have paid dividend. He has a YoY of 181%. Keep up the good work, you’re doing great!

Dividendportfolio.nl – € 112.22 – 10 companies have paid out dividend. And he crossed the €100 mark for the first time. Congratulations! He had a YoY of – drum roll please – 1300%. I’m curious how the next months will turn out.

Stashing Dutchman – Unfortunately, the stashing Dutchman hasn’t reported his dividend income for March 2020. So, no new figures for him. Hopefully he will be back in our April roundup.

ThinkingBig – ThinkingBig received a total of € 60.17 in dividends last month. All the dividend is coming from trackers and some individual stocks. Although the amount in dividend is small, his total passive income is growing every month.

Polliesdividend – € 674.84 – March was a good month for my Vrijheid Fonds, with six dividend increases! I had a YoY increase of almost 13%. For more information about my passive income, just read my March report.

 

Finally

Although it has been a crazy month and we all live in times we haven’t seen before, our dividend still is rolling in. March has been good month for the Dutch Dividend community. 8 Bloggers received and reported their dividend income in March. We all worked hard to deliver strong results and some impressive dividend growth rates. Congrats to us all. Keep up the good work, and keep writing some amazing posts on your websites!

We as Dutch Dividend Bloggers made an astonishing € 1,833.00 in dividend! I’m proud of us, what a great work we all did! Let us all keep up the good work!

    I just started investing. Have quite some savings and going steadily now. I was very surprised and happy to see my first dividends 66 euro all together.

    I got quite some Shell stock and this dividend will come in June. This is still first quarter, so quite late. For Q2 comes then soon after. Strange. But I’m curious and excited.

    Also, I deliberately invested in some companies who skippes their dividend. Stock prices were really low, and figured they will pay dividend in the future again. I’m in for the long run and I hope my investment will be rewarded then. What do you think about this?

      Hello DutchFI

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to write a comment. I really appreciate this!
      As a Dividend Growth Investor, I’m in it for the long-run and I try to own only companies that keep raising their dividend year-in year-out.
      If a company is to skip its dividend I will asses the company again. First of all I want to know why do they skip their dividend. Is it because of lack of money/earnings or is it something else. And I also asses the value of the company again.
      If the management skip their dividend because of a lack of earnings, then all my alarm bells will start to ring. And I probably will sell this stock.
      If they skip the dividend is skip/suspended for a different reason, I will dive further in the company to search for this reason.
      That is how I deal with skipping the dividend.

      If you look at my current Vrijheid Fonds, You see two companies that have suspended their dividend (Rabobank and NN Group). Both because they follow the guidelines from the ECB.
      It is not because they don’t have enough money/earnings. And that is why I will keep these stock. And furthermore I still believe in these companies and their management

      I hope this answers your question
      Cheers

    I had the same opinion after investigating, and invested in ABN AMRO, ING, NN and Randstad. Hopefully this will be rewarded later. I have time, so buy and hold it will be.

    I would like to learn more about American or other foreign dividend stocks. Might be interesting.
