We are already way in March and I still haven’t told you how the month of February was. This has a reason; I was on a well-deserved holiday with my family. It is really nice to spend quality time together. I have a great and healthy family, so I’m the richest man there is!
But my vacation is over and it is time to tell you the status of my Vrijheid Fonds and report my passive income for this month. February traditionally is a slow dividend income month.
This is a blog post about my favorite topic, dividends! I hope this post inspires other people out there to start saving and investing as soon as they can. The power you feel knowing that you are richer than you were yesterday and you didn’t have to work a minute for it, is a wonderful feeling.
In total I received € 66.85 ($ 73.71) in passive income in February. My Vrijheid Fonds had three dividend increase! Realty Income raised its dividend with 3.9%, Omega Healthcare Investments with 1.80% and AT&T with 2.10%. In total my Vrijheid Fonds has had already 4 dividend raises this year.
If we take a closer look, the dividend was coming from:
- AT&T (T) € 22.20
- Omega Healthcare Investments (OHI) € 17.58
- Procter & Gamble (PG) € 19.42
- Realty Income (O) € 7.65
That makes a total of € 66.85. This is an increase of more than 133% from last years February. This increase was mainly due to the new buys I made last year.
This is great! DGI at work!

In 2016 I received a total in passive income of € 113.27
If we take a look at my Vrijheid Fonds (Freedom Fund), we can see that the value is slightly higher than last month.
In February we had a deep dip and after February 17th, Mr Market was in a better mood again. In the last half of February my Vrijheid Fonds got ride of almost al the loses since the beginning of 2016. At the end of February the value of my Vrijheid Fonds was almost back at level of the beginning of this year.
My total portfolio value at the end of February is $64,630, which is an increase of 0.17% over last month (€ 64,523). I again donated € 400 of fresh capital to my Vrijheid Fonds.
Again this month I made a nice step in my journey.
Thanks for reading!
Because all figures I give are in Euro’s. Because the exchange rates is not constant (duh…) my passive income changes per month (even if the dividend stays the same).
For the record: I only post my passive income from dividend the month I received it on my brokers account. And it is after taxes.
