December 2022 Overview


Welcome to December 2022 Overview, with this summary we say goodbye to 2022. This month there were many purchases, no sales and, as always, some dividends.

In December we took the opportunity to reincorporate companies that were already used in the portfolio but that we sold in September. We got some of them at very good prices, they are small positions that we will expand, but we did not want to end the year without having them in our portfolio.

We are going to see in detail all the movements of the last month of the year 2022.

    Financial Goals

    As we did last December 2021, we are going to review the financial objectives for the year, some were met and others were not, we are going to see it in detail:

    Achieved goals

    • Increase dividend income compared to the previous year ✅
    • Reach 130 thousand euros in portfolio valuation ✅
    • Earn €4,000 or more in dividends (gross dividend) from our Spanish portfolio ✅
    • Earn in dividends $4,000 or more (gross dividend) from our American portfolio ✅
    • Contribute 1500 euros to the retirement plan ✅
    • Make the monthly summary ✅
    • Update the information of the companies already published on this website ✅
    • Publish the stock market schedule for 2022
    • Learn to fill out and present the 720 form ✅

    Goals not achieved

    • Lower the margin to less than 30% of assets ❌
    • Add 12 new companies to the web ❌
    • Create a contingency cushion of €200 per month ❌

    About the unfulfilled objectives:

    • Unfortunately, the margin did not fall below 30% of total assets, we will work on this point in 2023 to see if we close this new year with this objective achieved.
    • In 2022 we have only added 3 new companies to the web (Main Street Capital, T. Rowe Price y Kimberly-Clark), we will work this new year to try to add twelve new companies. What we did do is update the companies that we already have published, which are many, and now we will also do it in English.
    • This year we have contributed to the contingency cushion but less than €200 per month.

    Retirement Plan

    In 2022 we contributed only 1,500 euros, which was the total that the Treasury allows to deduct in the next income statement. This year was not a good year for the pension plan since it is indexed to the S&P500 index, which in 2022 had a decline of -19.44%.

    At the end of December 2022 we have invested almost 10,000 euros and it has an accumulated return of almost 30% reaching a value of 12,962.72 euros.
