  1. Hey,
    I really like your blog, nice to see how it goes on someone on the other side of the small sea :)

    You have a lot of stocks that pay their dividend in USD. What are your thoughts on that? As USD is very strong at the moment and maybe in 5 years the dividends value will be a lot smaller because of the different currencies.

    1. Hi Dividendstrainer

      Thanks, it's nice to have some visitors from the other side of that small sea! :)

      Yes, you're right, I get much dividends in US dollars, and of course it includes the currency risk. Anyway, company in Europe, has the same currency risk, if it works internationally. In reality, I do not care about the fluctuations in exchange rates, because it is almost impossible to predict them, too much politics.

      Thanks for visiting!

  2. Good buy IMO, CSCO may be one of my next purchases.
