Yes, it’s time to write my favorite 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 October. And what kind a month it was for my Vrijheid Fonds. I had just one (small) dividend increase. Realty Income raised its monthly dividend with 0.26%. This was the fifth raise of their dividend this year!
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 € 49.01 ($ 53.96) in passive income.
If we take a closer look, the dividend was coming from:
Coca Cola (KO) € 20.38
General Electric (GE) € 10.65
Realty Income (O) € 7.36
Vereit (VER) € 10.62
That makes a total of € 49.01, this is a 72.4% increase from last years October. This increase was mainly due to the new buys I made in the last year. October was also the month in which Vereit started paying dividend again.

In 2015 I received a total in passive income of € 1407.75
If we take a look at my Vrijheid Fonds (Freedom Fund), we can see that the value is a lot higher than last month. October has been an incredible month. The stock prices have risen a lot. Wow what a month!
This Month I made 1 new purchase. I bought 21 shares of WMT (see here)
My total portfolio value at the end of October is $60.251, which is an increase of 9.65% over last month (€ 54,950). This month I donated € 600 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.
