July month review – a great month

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.

This post is rather late and this is not a thing you aspect from me. I’m late because I was on holiday. I have been on a road trip with my family. 4 weeks of precious quality time with my kids and wife. Man I’m rich!!

Okay lets see how much passive income I have received in July. And what kind a month it was for my Vrijheid Fonds. I had just one dividend increase. Realty Income raised its dividend with 0.30%. 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 € 38.61 ($ 42.24) in passive income. If we take a closer look, the dividend was coming from:

Coca Cola (KO) € 20.51
General Electric (GE) € 10.72
Realty Income (O) € 7.38

That makes a total of € 38.61, this is an 82.4% increase from last years July. This big increase is still due to rearranging my portfolio last year. But wow this feels good!

In 2015 I received a total in passive income of € 996.08

This month I made two purchases. On the 2nd of July I bought 21 shares of Wal-Mart (see). And on July 15th I averaged down my position of CVX (see).

With both purchases I added € 23 of dividend for 2015.

If we take a look at my Vrijheid Fonds (Freedom Fund), we can see that the value is higher than last month. My total portfolio value at the end of July is $59.459, which is a increase of 1.34% over last month (€ 56,467). 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.
