Another month and a few new additions to the Portfolio. First is NSI , which is a real estate company. They have offices and shopping malls they rent out, a tricky business at the moment. They offer full service solutions and advise as well. Which I think is the way forward, not just rent it out and see if the renter makes it but help their business as well.
So that makes this purchase one with a bit more risk. It’s relatively cheap and pay’s nice dividend, just under 4% of current share price. The debt is reasonable and should not be a problem in the coming years. The have an occupancy rate of around 77% which is not bad.
Next additions are too existing positions, Coca Cola and Munich Re. Coca Cola got a bit beaten up on the day when the results came out. So I bought some. Making the position up too par within the portfolio.
Munich Re has been available with a bit of a discount , and needed to be more in line with the rest of the portfolio. It’s a very stable company with a impressive history and solid dividend payments.
I always like to watch the dividends come in. Someone famous said something along those lines. I need to lookup the exact quote.
Well it’s a lot of fun. This month has been a good month. Next few months will be a bit more slow dividend wise.
Anyway, these are the numbers. I will be posting about the April additions to the portfolio somewhere next weekend. Enjoy your weekend!

Edit 03/05/2016. Forgot the Dow Chemical dividend. Added it.
I didn’t know about these two working together , but it’s very good and inspiring, In Berlin they did a session at Loop 2015. Explaining the methods and ways they improvise at the concerts. I am going to check out more from them.
Well, as always late to the party. The earlier releases by Moderat are still on the ‘to listen’ list. But today I browsed around the internet and found out that Moderat III was out.
Opened Spotify and started listening. And started with Moderat II instead of III. So this is a review of II, an album from 2013.
Just what I needed on this Sunday afternoon being exhausted and moody because of it. Very chilled out tracks and very well produced.
Bad kingdom has very nice beats and a good vocal, a good track for driving through mountains. The next song versions bubbled along and has a sort of break beat feel to it, at least that’s what I made of it.
Let in the light is a very nice background track for working , gently flowing. Can see myself playing it with a cup of coffee in the morning as well.
Milk somehow got on my nerves. Skipped it after a while. Don’t know exactly why.
Nice beats again on Therapy, bit more busy as well , really liked this one. The next song Gita wasn’t for me. Ilona was a good one again with a nice vibe and cool beats. Damage done and this time just passed by and I wasn’t really listening any more. Good chilled out music and a nice album overall.
March is done so it’s time for the portfolio additions for March , the February update and buying didn’t go according to plan when I got stuck in hospital.
So everything happened in March. I added Cisco to the portfolio, Cisco produces high quality network solutions and helps companies implement them, it was on the list to buy for some time.
It has risen in the last couple of months which made it a bit expensive. But I bought it just before the dividend date and so I will receive the first upcoming dividend payment.
The company has a dividend of around 3,5% with current prices. Which is good it also has been paying dividends since 2011, has a P/E ratio of 14 which is good. I think the company will continue to grow and be a major player in the network solutions market. They also have more cash than debt which is also good.
February 2016 is over and the dividends for this month are :
In Euro without the tax :
12-feb ONEOK INC. 5,59
11-feb APPLE INC. 4,72
That’s all folks. Not much this month, but this will be different once the portfolio grows.
