I did 24 transactions during the year, 21 purchases and 3 sales , I got dividends from 21 companies.
In January, I sold my 200 Orion's shares. because in my view, their value had risen too high. I left, however, a further 300 Orion's shares in my portfolio, because I still believe in Orion's ability to pay good dividends. In February, I sold about 73% of the SP corporate bond fund, because I wanted to move the weight more on direct equity investments. The third-sales I made in December, I reduced the number of my holding in Tele2, from my 500 shares, I sold 300 shares, because I'm a little skeptical of Tele2's ability to pay good dividends for years to come. These sales generated a total of €8,069 income, after-tax, my net income will be € 5,648.44.

I used total money of €67,974.85 to the new share and ETF purchases over the past years, sale of funds and shares gave me €29,597.21. In addition, one of my term deposit matured during the year, the value of € 20k, which I used for the purchase of new shares over the last year. Almost all of the dividends that I received during the year 2013, a total of € 4,786.51, I reinvested.
My goal is to have a dividend yield of € 6,000 over the next year and increase the value of my portfolio, so that in 2015, my dividend income would be € 7,500. Also aims to diversify the ownership more geographically and add at least one new currency in my portfolio. My intention is to acquire shares in the Canadian and British exchanges.
Happy New Year to all, and successful investments in 2014
