Although it’s not yet the end of December, I am updating my dividends paid page today as I have one more payment on Monday but already know how much this will be.
The dividends received for my SIPP are paid as cash, the dividends for my ISA are automatically re-invested. I now have £700.82 cash held in my ISA, and with declared dividends to be paid in January and early February amounting to £646.95, I will be looking to invest this cash around then. I am therefore reviewing if I wish to add to an existing holding or to add a new company to my portfolio.
I have received the following dividends this month:
|Royal Dutch Shell||£77.03||£0.00||£77.03|
This brings the total for the year to £3563.90 for my SIPP and £466.33 for my ISA which is £4,030.23 in total. Having reviewed the dividends I am likely to be paid next year (assuming a modest increase), I may receive over £5,000 due to the potential dividend increases, the re-investment of my dividends increasing the amount paid even if there is no increase, and the payments in through the year allowing me to buy more shares.
I would like to thank everyone for reading my posts, and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year (can’t wait for when I am having a financially independent New Year)
