Rising tensions between the United States and North Korea brought a wave of falling stock prices (hence falling passive income) recently as worried investors moved money out of equities and into the perceived safety of gold, Swiss currency and similar products. At one point, this change of investment strategy cut $1 trillion from the value of global stock markets.
What did it mean for my humble little portfolio? I took advantage and bought more equities.

Target Corp (TGT) has been identified as the highest ranking stock, using my dividend ranking system.
I also made my first cash contribution this quarter, where I now inject 10K per quarter.
This 10K and the accumulated 1005.94gbp is spread equally into the top 10 ranking stocks in my dividend growth fund. You can refer to the top 10 dividend stocks in my ranking system.
Dividend Funds Overview (Capital)
The screenshot from my Hargreaves and Lansdowne (broker) account below shows the state of play after Q3,2017 (and after the dividend reinvestment and cash contribution).
There’s been a gain of 3726.13gbp/ 1.57% for the dividend funds (capital) this quarter.
There’s been a gain of 2084.31gbp/ 13.52% re the ISA/ investment trust this quarter.
Ratesetter and Twino
I dissolved the Ratesetter and Twino accounts. They were both net positive during close of account, but I didn’t like the thought of having 3 accounts to manage. Perhaps I’ll add a quick paragraph on account closure for my P2P lending post.
The Mintos account has increased 31.57 Euros this quarter.
The Net Annual Return has increased 0.09%.
Total rental income this quarter is 3266.57gbp after management/ letting fees. An increase of 1702.42gbp from last quarter.
There’s been a gain of 1.51% re the SIPP this quarter.
Dividend Funds: The average dividend yield is sitting at 4.48% and the dividend portfolio has capital worth 108,495.32gbp.
Hence, the dividend portfolio is on track to distribute 4861gbp per annum.
