Coming up in this dividend tracking spreadsheet update release, we’ll be updating the transactions tab to handle holdings in both GBP and GBX. For now, the spreadsheet isn’t smart enough to tell the difference between UK stocks in £ and p, but all that’s about to change.

Dividend Tracker 0.3 update: Monthly totals

The dividend tracker is pretty good, but it’s not perfect. You may have spotted a version number on the data tab, which denotes which version of the tracking spreadsheet you’re rocking.

Investing can be just as rewarding, if not more so, than your typical run-of-the-mill savings plan. For saving in general, it’s usually advised to put aside between 10 to 15% of your monthly income. Should you bring in £2,000 each month, it’s a good idea to at least save £200 of that paycheque.

Why I’m continuing to add more Realty Income

The majority of companies publicly traded lost value over recent months, largely down to the COVID-19 outbreak. 2020 has been considered by many to be a write-off, but that couldn’t be further from the truth when it comes to certain stocks.

Returning to the bloggersphere

It’s been a good few years since I ran a blog having dedicated much of my written hours to my day job. 2020 seems like an odd year to return to this way of publishing thoughts, but it’s a great opportunity with more people getting online and looking at ways to make money and live a better life.
