On thursday the 17th of May I decided to let go of my Sanofi shares, I collected the yearly payout and got a small capital gain. I let them go as I’d like to focus more on quarterly dividends and I don’t really like the tax situation in France, it’s too much of a hassle for me. This resulted in a -€38,18 for my net yearly dividends.
On wednesday 2 May I decided to sell my Ahold Delhaize shares for a profit of 38% as they pay dividends once a year and have no significant history of raising their dividends on a yearly basis. Together with some received dividends and the proceeds from this sell I decided to buy into two great companies which have been on my watchlist forever.
On monday the 23th of April I decided to put my received dividends combined with a bit of fresh cash to work. I decided to buy 6 new shares of a company I already owned which has seen some recent weakness. This weakness, to me, seems like it was because of a sell-off in the entire Consumer Defensive sector. Nothing fundamentally changed in my view.
Friday February the 23th I have purchased 18 shares of Sanofi, a stock which is sold on the Paris stock exchange.
Friday february the 2nd I decided I would put my last cash in Apple. Their earnings had been good in my eyes, yet the market put Apple 3% lower. So at a price of $163 I jumped in ($164,73 incl transaction fees) with 8 shares.
Now why would I buy them at this point?
