    1. Hi Mr. Captain Cash

      It is nice if you like what you see and my article collection.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hi DH!
    Thanks for your blog, very interesting to read and inspiring! One question: do you keep cash on the sidelines, waiting for a market turndown, or are you more or less fully invested all the time?

    1. Hi

      I have a little bit of cash in reserve for my portfolio, in most cases too less. But I keep also a certain amount of cash in reserve for "bad days" in every day life.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. DH,

    Great round-up. I was glad to read some stuff in here that also pushes my dividend journey further. Guess we've both got it going for us!

    Keep on leading the European pack,

  5. DH,

    Great list of articles. It seems like your portfolio had a pretty busy week. Congrats on the receipt of dividends and the several increases you received!
