Month review – November 2015

Wow times flies. November is already gone. Another month has passed and it is time to write a post. A 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.

Okay lets see how much passive income I have received in November. And what kind a month it was for my Vrijheid Fonds. I had just one dividend increase. Omega Healthcare Investment raised its dividend with 1.82%. It is small, but very welcome!

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 € 90.07 ($ 95.19) in passive income.

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

AT&T (T) € 22.68
Omega Healthcare Investment (OHI) € 18.02
Procter&Gamble (PG) € 20.26
Realty Income (O) € 7.66
Mutual Fund € 21.45

That makes a total of € 90.07, this is a 75.1% increase from last years November. This increase was mainly due to the new buys I made in the last year. Compound interest at work! Wow this feels good!

In 2015 I received a total in passive income of € 1497.82

If we take a look at my Vrijheid Fonds (Freedom Fund), we can see that the value is higher than last month. November was a great month. The stock prices gained momentum and kept rising. Two month of big rises in a row. Will December will also be this great

My total portfolio value at the end of November is $63.883, which is a increase of 6.03% over last month (€ 60,251). 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. And 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.

    Hello Pollie,
    Another nice piece of work free income, lovely isn’t it? We know its blasphemy to say this, but your dividend to date would have paid for a (or another) very nice (and free!) holiday. However, we guess you’re more sensible and have invested the money to earn even more money in your vrijheids fonds (sometimes it’s just nice to dream, right?).

    Hey pollie,

    Your dividend numbers look really nice.

    What is the dividend tax rate in Holland? In Belgium it will be 27 PCT as if next year. Do you also pay double tax on your us stocks?

    My dividend experiment just started. I am happy to see it beats big time my savings account. I might put more money to work.

      Hey AT,

      Thanks for stopping by.
      In The Netherlands the dividend tax is 15%. And also for US stocks. This because we have (our IRS) a contract with the IRS of the US.

      The Dividend tax we pay, we can deduct from our income tax.
      So not bad in comparison with other countries 😁
