New purchase April 2018 IV

I've made some new purchases. PM made a sharp drop so I decided to pick up some more of them.
  • 14 Industriv√§rden for 186.55 SEK for a yield of 2.95 %.
  • 3 PEP for $102.54 for a yield of 3.14 %.
  • 4 O for $ 49.44 for a yield of 5.17 %.
  • 5 PM for $84.21 for a yield of 5.08 %.
  • 4 Sampo for 43.4 € for a yield of 5.99 %.
I've updated my portfolio and as always it can be found here.

I am a bit half way to reach my goal for the month. Two finished books and half way into my third. I enjoy reading books, but in the long run I think that it will be hard to read a book a week.

New purchase April 2018 II

I've continued this month with reinvesting dividend. This time with Daimler.
  • 5 Daimler for 65.54 € for a yield of 5.56 %.
I've updated my portfolio and as always it can be found here.

For my monthly goal I'm a bit behind. I've finished one book and read a couple of chapters in two others. I have no real worries that I will not be able to make it. It is more a question of determination.

New purchase April 2018 I

I've reinvested some dividend and then some. With a lot of European stocks paying their dividend during the spring I'm going to focus on that part of the world for some time.
  • 12 Cramo for 16.85 € for a yield of 4.66 %.
  • 15 Fortum for 17.55 € for a yield of 6.26 %. 
I've updated my portfolio and as always it can be found here.

In order to met my goal for this month I've gone to the library and borrowed a couple of books and started reading them in parallel. It's actually good since now I'm reading more non-fiction and then it's good the be able to switch.

Monthly goal April 2018

My goal for March was to take at least 10 000 steps each day which I failed. I missed a couple of days but the average was 11 600 steps. Something good that came out of this is that I've started running. Really slow since I've had problems earlier in myife when I increased the speed and range too quickly. I don't think I've done any yoga at all in March so I guess that was not for me. I still est mostly vegetarian so that's a win!

In April I've decided to try to read four books. I like reading but usually don't prioritize it during the working week. So less TV and more reading. I've been to the library and borrowed some books.

Goal April: Read at least four books during the month.
Goal March: Walk at least 10 000 steps each day. Failed!
Goal February: Practice at least ten minutes of yoga each day. Done!
Goal January: Only eat vegetarian food. Done!
