Portfolio Additions in February 2019

On my way to financial independence, I constantly try to improve my income situation. To this end, I pursue a core-satellite investment strategy.

The core of my portfolio is a broadly diversified ETF portfolio, which I manage through value averaging. In February, I didn’t purchase any ETF shares.

My ETF portfolio is complemented by a high-yielding stock portfolio, which I manage according to my own stock screener. However, I also didn’t initiate any new position in February.

My passive income for 2019 is now expected to hit €3,879.24 (previous estimate: €4,434.33). This would be an increase of 6% compared to 2018.

BTW: I regularly publish my watchlist, which features all potential candidates for a prospective portfolio addition.
