Passive Income August 2014 – Here comes my Dividend

It is time for the month’s nicest post. It is time to summarize my dividend income from the past month. In total I received € 31.98 in passive income.

If we take a closer look, the dividend was coming from Realty Income (O) € 5.90, from American Realty capital prop. (ARCP) € 5.37 and from one of my mixed funds € 20.71.

That makes a total of € 31.98. This is a nice increase from last years august. I’m proud of this increase of passive income. This helps my Freedom Fund grow! (O Yessssss)

In 2014 I received a total in passive income of € 653.38
Next week I post my update of my Freedom Fund.

Because all figures I give are in Euro’s. 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 R2R,
      Thanks for your reaction.
      I just started my journey (after rearranging my portfolio to a DGI-portfolio). So I hope a lot of great months will follow.

    Yay Pollie! It’s nice that O and ARCP pay dividends monthly. I automatically reinvest the dividends from both, and they are compounding nicely. Do you DRIP?

      Hello Keith,

      Thanks for stopping by.
      Monthly dividend are nice. For both stocks I don’t have a drip installed. I don’t know if it is possible for non-us citizen. With the dividend I buy new stocks from my watchlist. So yah, i reinvest my dividend but not always in the same stock.
      My biggest investment (Unilever) gives stockdividend, which i use 😉

    Nice work! Very impressive and seems like you are building up your dividend income quite nicely. You are well on your way to your goals, I am very excited for you. Keep at it and we will all get there together, thank you for sharing! I also own O and Bert owns ARCP, so I’m digging us sharing ownership! Talk soon.

      Hello W2R,
      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to write a comment.
      I agree with you that I’ll not have a problem surpassing my last years dividend. If i’m counting my future dividend, my year total will be around € 1,050.- And that will be great.
      However I set my self a goal of € 1,250.-. So there is still a lot of work to do!
      as I wrote on my blog in 2014 i started to rearrange my portfolio, so It will be difficult to surpass my goal. But I’ll try.
