Month review – June 2016

Yes it’s that time again! I get to 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.

June is history, and lets see what it brought. June is always a good month. It is the last month of the quarter and a lot of companies pay dividend in June. This is always a good month for my Vrijheid Fonds. I had two dividend increases. Unilever raised its dividend with 5.99% and Johnson & Johnson with 6.70%. You have to love these kinds of increases.

Lets take a look at the numbers and tell you the status of my Vrijheid Fonds and report my passive income for this month. In total I received € 337.84 ($ 375.04) in passive income.

If we take a closer look, the dividend was coming from:

Royal Dutch Shell (RDS) € 144.89
Unilever (UN) € 64.75
Aflac (AFL) € 7.53
Archer-Daniels-Midland (ADM) € 9.41
Chevron (CVX) € 29.49
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) € 18.38
McDonalds (MCD) € 14.29
Microsoft (MSFT) € 8.82
Realty Income (O) € 7.62
Target (TGT) € 15.44
Wal-Mart (WMT) € 17.22

That makes a total of € 337.84, this is a 45.9% increase from last years June. Wow this feels good!

In 2016 I received a total in passive income of € 1,281.68

If we take a look at my Vrijheid Fonds (Freedom Fund) we can see it was a good month. This is including the Brexit misery.

My total portfolio value at the end of June is € 72,090, which is an increase of 5.62% over last month (€ 68,251). This is great! DGI at work!

This month I donated € 500 of fresh capital to my Vrijheid Fonds.

With this fresh capital and my accumulated dividend from this quarter I purchased 47 stocks of Omega Healthcare Investments (OHI). And I bought a new mutual fund for my “Safe-haven-sleep-well” part of my Vrijheid Fonds.

Again this month I made a nice step in my journey.

Thanks for reading!

    HI Pollie,

    It’s great to see such a high YOY improvement from good quality companies. You’re nearly at 75% of last year’s dividend total and only halfway through the year – congrats!

    Best wishes,
