New purchases

I've made some new purchases. No new companies just increasing some.
  • 4 KHC for $ 71.46  for a yield of 3.5 %.
  • 2  KMB for $ 115.21 for a yield of 3.47 %.
  • 10 T for $ 36.54 for a yield of  5.47 %. 
I've updated my portfolio and as always it can be found here.

So doing yoga has made me realize how bad mobility I have in my legs and lower back. After two weeks doing yoga I don't really notice any improvement in mobility, but I have faith.

New purchases

I've made some new purchases even though I'm a bit hesitant due to the recent downturn in stock prices.
  • 15 GE for $ 14.77  for a yield of 2.44 %.
  • 5  PG for $ 81.11 for a yield of 3.4 %.
  • 10 O for $ 48.96 for a yield of  4.79 %. 
I'm thinking about holding some more cash this month, hoping that the prices will drop even more. I've updated my portfolio and as always it can be found here.

Anyway my yoga February is coming along nicely. Ten minutes yoga is a great way to start the day and it's an even better way to end the day. My sleep quality has increase which is great for me. I recommend everyone to try it. Ten minutes a day should be easy for everyone.

Income/expense January 2018

When I summarize my spending for my vegetarian January I'm a bit disappointed. I though that I would have spent less money, but apparently I did that somehow. Anyway I'm off for a great start this year with low spending, high earnings and my best ever dividend/expense ratio.

Expenses: 11 800 SEK
Income:  36 600 SEK
Savings rate: 67.76 %
Dividend/Expense rate: 5.98 %

A summary of my savings rate can be found via this page

Dividend January 2018

Here's a list of the dividends that I've received the first month of 2018.
  • SDIV 31.19 SEK
  • SRET 86.36 SEK
  • SPFF 60.29 SEK 
  • SDEM 140.08 SEK
  • PEP 33.03 SEK
  • KMB 63.31 SEK
  • MO 43.27 SEK
  • PM 43.37 SEK
  • O 25.68 SEK
  • BCE 60.25 SEK
  • GEI 63.95 SEK
  • ALA 47.15 SEK
  • EIF 28.26 SEK
  • AD 30.52 SEK
  • BNS 50.51 SEK
For a total of 706.22 SEK. The year starts good. If I would've received this 2017 it would have been my third best month and compared to one year ago when I did not receive any dividend at all it is a great increase.

Monthly goal February

My goal for January was to only eat vegetarian food. It has worked out great for me. The only issue has been when I've been invited for dinner with family and friends. I don't really want to impose so I think that an all vegetarian diet will be hard for me. Anyway my plan is to continue buying vegetarian food and empty my freezer of meat.

For February I'm going to try to improve my flexibility and general well-being by practicing yoga each day. This feels more challenging since it is hard to find day for practice every day, but I'm still going to try.

Goal February: Practice at least ten minutes of yoga each day.
Goal January: Only eat vegetarian food. Done!
