Monthly Purchases in September

As a believer of compound interest and diversification I tend to buy a wide range of ETF’s every month. My broker allows me to buy them twice a month without paying any commission. Here is where I breakdown the purchases.

The shares I bought on the 4th of September.
The shares I bought on the 28th of September.

In total I added €3.730,70 to my ETF portfolio in September. Currently I’m in the process of adding more right now as the markets dipped nicely after the last purchase on the 28th of September.

I also added another 100 shares of Altria, the current valuation is too good to pass up on a Dividend King with 8% dividend yield. I purchased 50 shares at $43 and another 50 shares at $41,50. Currently Altria is by far my biggest position and I won’t add more unless the shares fall in to the $35-$38 range.

Current diversification vs. ideal diversification

My current portfolio.

Dark green = Fundamental
Blue = Technology
Light green = America
Yellow = Emerging Markets
Red = Real Estate
Grey = Bonds

What my portfolio has to become.

It was another month of steady progress of diversifying my portfolio and gaining more ETF exposure. With current market tensions I think I stand to make quite some extra income from my options trading, from this income I will distribute almost everything in to my ETF’s.

      Hi PCI, thanks! It was too tempting for me too, I just had to make it my biggest position ha!
      Good luck with your decision!


  1. That’s a sh#t load of money you have put to work! 😉 How much dividend does that add?

      Thanks Mr. Groeigeld! Yeah I was quite happy to deploy all of that cash! To be honest I haven’t calculated how much dividends it added. The 100 shares of Altria add $336 pre-tax on a yearly basis. With the ETFs I don’t know as a lot of them accumulate the dividends instead of distributing them, which is fine for me.

      Thanks for stopping by.
