As I have been a strong monthly dividend growth investor, I keep investing in stocks throughout the year in several batches. When Investing in Nasdaq Baltic, the great help to learn more about upcoming dividends is Dividend Calendar.
Some readers have asked me - do I just invest based on dates or I do my homework and research companies before investing. Of course, I do my homework and do at least fundamental analysis for each stock I'm adding to the portfolio.
But as I'm just starting out, sometimes I overpay for the stocks, like Silvano Fashion Group (SFG1T) or OlainFarm (OLF1R). On the other hand, I'm here for a long-term (at least 10 years) and as long I don't feel I'm making a fatal error, I feel OK after seeing a negative return in the portfolio.
Now, when planning investments for 2018 in Nasdaq Baltics, I did another simple research, based on historical data and my own experience to list stocks I'm looking to acquire next year.

As investments in the Baltic stock, equity is just a part from my broader 1 million dollars saving account by the time I will turn 60 (2045) I'm planning to invest in the Baltics about EUR 5,000 in 2018 in several batches.
It seems that January - March will be a quiet period on the stock exchange with little to no dividend paying stocks (I expect to see Vilniaus Baldai dividend payment in January) I will use this time to acquire new stocks and increase holdings in existing stocks.
Right now the top priority is to acquire new stocks. New stocks mean more diversified portfolio. Also to increase total dividend payouts in 2018 the next priority is to increase and acquire more stocks in companies that paid great dividends in 2017
