Wow! Another month has passed. Time flies when you having fun. I can hardly believe it that the third quarter is already behind us. A new month means also time to summarize my dividend income from the past month. In total I received € 172.89 in passive income.
If we take a closer look, the dividend was coming from:
- Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) € 72.86
- Unilever (UN) € 55.96
- Realty Income (O) € 6.16
- McDonalds (MCD) € 11.47
- Aflac (AFL) € 5.99
- Target (TGT) € 14.84
- American Realty Capital Prop. (ARCP) € 5.61
That makes a total of € 172.89. This is a nice increase from last years September. The biggest contribution to this increase came from reshuffling my portfolio.

If we take a look at my Vrijheid Fonds (Freedom Fund), you can see that I didn’t make any changes last month. I only donate some cash to my Vrijheid Fonds. At this moment most of the stocks are, in my opinion, overvalued. So I’ll wait and stay cool. When there will be a dip in the market, I’ll be back. Or, of course, when I discover a buying opportunity.
My total portfolio value at the end of September is $41,967 which is an increase of 1.89% over last month August (€ 41,188). Most of the gain came due to a stronger Dollar against the Euro.
My journey is still very long, but I’m a little step closer.
And like a Chinese philosopher once said: “Every journey begins with the first step”
