New purchase March 2018 II

I've increased my position in some Nordic companies. HM has been taking a beating the last year, but I still think that it is a good long time buy. I've reinvested and then some in Kone.
  • 20 HM-B for 136.02 SEK for a yield of 7.17 %.
  • 6 KNEBV for € 41.06 for a yield of  3.4 %.
  • 12 CRA1V for € 18.75 for a yield of 4 %.
With respect to my goal it has been going great. I've averaged 11 600 step per day so I'm satisfied. I've been less tired at work, but that might also have something to do with the increase of sunlight.

I've updated my portfolio and as always it can be found here.

A new month and some new purchase.
  • 5 KHC for $ 67.47 for a yield of 3.71 %.
  • 20 GE for $ 14.53 for a yield of 2.48 %.
My goal this month is to walk at least 10 000 steps every day. So far it has been easy. I've just gotten off a couple of stops earlier on my way to work, taken a walk during lunch and then I'm done.

Monthly goal March 2018

My goal for February was to practice at least ten minutes of yoga. I've reached this goal. It has been quite a challange to be able to find time for it every day. The biggest improvement has been that my sleep has improved after doing yoga before going to bed. Regardig my previous goal of eating vegetarian I realized that I have not bought any meat in a store this year. I've been to some restaurants and eaten some fish and meat. So I've made some changes to my life.

For March I'm going to try to take 10 000 steps each day. At an earlier job we had a contest with the goal of walking 10 000 steps and it was doable on average, but hard to do every day.

Goal March: Walk at least 10 000 steps each day.
Goal February: Practice at least ten minutes of yoga each day. Done!
Goal January: Only eat vegetarian food. Done!

Dividend February 2018

I know that the month is not over but I will not receive any more dividends. Here a list of the dividends that I've received in February.
  • SDIV 29.45 SEK
  • SRET 29.83 SEK
  • SPFF 58.81 SEK 
  • SDEM 16.18 SEK
  • T 98.19 SEK
  • ABBV 28.08 SEK
  • PG 81.82 SEK
  • O 34.64 SEK
  • GIS 19.24 SEK
  • ALA 46.34 SEK
  • TD 49.43 SEK
  • EIF 27.77 SEK
  • AD 30 SEK
For a total of 549.78 SEK. The increase compared to last year was really big, but not really comparable since just started investing. Looking forward at my projected dividends this will be the worst month (given that no dividends will be cut and that the currencies are somewhat stable) along with August for 2018.

I've joined twitter

So I've given my self a free birthday gift: I've joined twitter. I have not really used it before so we'll see how this will pan out. As a start I'm trying to automate a tweet whenever I post a blog post so if I've done it correctly my first tweet will be a link to this post.

If I manage to automate it I will update this post with instruction on how I did it :).

Update: So it was easier than I've thought to automate this. I just created an account on and added this applet. That was it. So if this is something you want to do it  is really easy.
