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 September. And what kind a month it was for my Vrijheid Fonds. I had just one dividend increase. Target raised its dividend with 7.70%. A nice increase!
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 € 287.94 ($ 321.90) in passive income.
If we take a closer look, the dividend was coming from:
Royal Dutch Shell A (RDS) € 89.35
Unilever (UN) € 60.32
Aflac (AFL) € 7.12
Billiton PLC – ADR (BBL) € 33.28
Chevron (CVX) € 29.29
Johnson&Johnson (JNJ) € 17.10
McDonalds (MCD) € 13.57
Microsoft (MSFT) € 7.54
Realty Income (O) € 7.22
Target (TGT) € 15.33
Wal-Mart (WMT) € 7.83
That makes a total of € 287.94, this is a 66.5% increase from last years September. This partly due to new buys the last year and partly due to rearranging my portfolio last year. Wow this feels good!

In 2015 I received a total in passive income of € 1358.74
If we take a look at my Vrijheid Fonds (Freedom Fund), we can see that the value is slightly lower than last month. My total portfolio value at the end of September is $54.950, which is a decrease of 0.44% over last month (€ 55,193). 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.
