My Portfolio's Transactions:

March 5, 2024

  • I purchased 51 shares of Global Equity Premium Income UCITS ETF (JGPI.DE) at €24.09 per share plus commission.

Based on the latest announcement, JGPI pays a dividend of $0.1316 per month. If the dividend remains at this level in the future, it will mean that, at today's exchange rate, that purchase 51 shares of JGPI will increase €51.52 of my expected annual net dividend income. With purchase price €24.09 plus commission (€2.50) my yield on cost is 6.04%. After this acquisition, JGPI’s weight of my portfolio is about 0.54% and its share of future annual dividend income is approximately 0.68%. For now, my plan is to increase the amount of JGPI in my portfolio on a monthly basis.
