Passive Income December 2014

This month is almost over. And this means that it is time to summarize my dividend income from the past month. In total I received € 209.44 ($ 253.41) in passive income.

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

  • Royal Dutch Shell A (RDS) € 76.79
  • Unilever (UN) € 56.20
  • Coca Cola (KO) € 17.14
  • Realty Income (O) € 6.44
  • Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) € 14.75
  • MacDonalds (MCD) € 12.54
  • AFLAC (AFL) € 6.58
  • Target (TGT) € 13.15
  • American Realty Capital Prop. (ARCP) € 5.85

That makes a total of € 209.44, this is a increase from last years December. This is an increase of almost 39%. This is great!

If we take a look at my Vrijheid Fonds (Freedom Fund), you can see that due to my drip in RDS en UN the number of shares have risen.

My total portfolio value at the end of December is $50,050, which is an increase of 3.19% over last month November (€ 48,501). Most of the gain came due to stock prices and a stronger Dollar against the Euro.

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

Thanks for reading!

      Thanks for your comment.
      About ARCP – i’m waiting a little bit longer. It is just a very small part of my portfolio and some new buyers are knocking on the door.
      ARCP still has a great portfolio.
      So i’m waiting, but it is a gamble.

    Cheers to a great finish for 2014. We have quite a few names in common between your dividend income names and mine. Will you be keeping your ARCP or sell like many of the dividend bloggers in recent days? I know you said you’ll wait a bit but I wonder how long before that dividend is reinstated and the time lost out to not receiving money will hurt compounding of your income.

      Thanks for your kind words.
      Regarding to ARCP: i’m still waiting. All management have been kicked out. And now Corvex management have taken a big stake in ARCP. I’m curious what they are going to do. So i’ll be waiting a little bit longer. I can afford to wait a little bit longer because it is a very small portion of my portfolio.
      But i know it is a gamble.
      And because every one is going out…. The rebel in me says stay in 😀
      What are you going to do?

    Great result for December! A 39% increase is nothing to sneeze at. Let’s hope you can keep that growth rate up for a while longer.

    Quick question, are you also going to add more European stocks to your portfolio?

      Hello NMW,
      Thanks for your kind words. I’m proud of my result in2014.
      Lets hope 2015 is even better 😃

      I’m always interested in european dividend aristocrats. However there are not that many.
      In the Netherlands we have a monthly magazine which publishes a dividend portfolio. There are some european stock in it. I’m looking into it currently.

        There are more dividend aristocrats than we think, but they’re rather hard to find because of currency changes, mergers, etc. It would be interesting if you could write a post on the stocks published in that article!

        Take care,

    Great result in December. A 39% increase is very impressive! I’d love to add more money to buy UL right now, also would love to own RDS and O in the future.

      Hello Tawcan,
      Thanks for your kind words!
      An increase of which i’m proud!
      UL is a great company, and as we call it a “buy and forget” stock.
      It is one of the corner stones of my Vrijheid Fonds.
      RDS made a nice decline today. A nice price to get in 😄
