Summary of Dividend Cuts



Christmas Eve, Christmas Ham and Mulled Wine! What could be a more appropriate moment to go through the notified dividend cuts of my portfolio holdings during this year. 


At the moment, my portfolio contains 47 shares from different companies, of which 5 have announced dividend cuts or temporary interruption of the dividend payments. Moreover, if commodity prices remain at that level for a long time, for me, it shouldn't be a big surprise if some other in my portfolio companies, announces the same things.
