Checked my spreadsheet this morning and it tells me today marks 1000 days of this journey. Here are some figures to show how I’ve progressed, feel free to ask any questions!
First purchases 27/10/2017:
2 x Aaron Ramsey @ £1 each
2 x Wilfried Zaha @ £1.02 each
1 x Alexis Sanchez @ £5.59
That 1 Sanchez share netted me 61p in divs over 3 months and I was buzzing!
First divs 24/11/2017:
Mouctar Diakhaby - 1 share - 12p PB div. nearly had a heart attack in excitement
First purchase of 10 or more shares 24/11/2017 (obviously inspired to make the big deposit after my Diakhaby dividend bonanza!):
15 x Cedric Bakbu @£14.70
First purchase of 100 shares 26/07/2018:
100 x M’Baye Niang @£88
First purchase of 300 shares 29/06/2019:
300 x Kenny Tete (??) @£105
Most spent on one purchase 27/02/2020:
300 x Paul Pogba @£1,647
£1 in divs after 2 months
£10 in divs after 5 months
£100 in divs after 9 months
£1000 in divs after 2 years
Currently just shy of 4K in divs and bonuses
Net deposits = £4693
Nominal port value = £16.7k (edited)
Crazy to look back at all the weird and wonderful trades I’ve done. Half of them make no sense to me now!
I’ve had so much fun and it’s saved me from traditional gambling which was ruining me.
Forum has been delightful for the most part though I don’t visit as often as I used to.
Thanks to everyone who has helped me along the way.
Onwards and upwards!
