Passive income July 2014

Now the month of July is over, it is time to summarize my dividend income in that month. I received € 21.17 in passive income. This dividend was coming from Coca Cola (KO) € 15.40 and Realty Income (O) € 5.77. A passive income of around € 21 is not much, however it is more than last year. In fact it is an increase of around 50%. I’m proud of this increase of passive income. This increase comes all from new companies in my Freedom Fund.

In July I made a couple of investment. I bought McDonalds (MCD), American Realty Capital Properties (ARCP), AT&T (T) and Target (TGT). These are almost all nice dividend Aristocrats, and a great addition to my Freedom Fund. For further reading about my research see MCD and ARCP .

In 2014 I received a total in passive income of € 621.40

    Hey PD,
    I really like AT&T for the high dividend yield. I don’t see much growth but those dividends make up for it. It’s almost like holding a bond. I will keep them on my watch list. I own all of the other companies you have mentioned except for Realty Income (O). I am waiting for a better buying opportunity, but for right now I like AFL as a future holding.

    You are making great progress, Pollie. 50% year over year is wonderful. By the way, I own all of the stocks that you mentioned. I just added to my IBM holdings yesterday. FastGraphs predicts a 17% annual return for Big Blue for the next 5 years, and I like the current valuation.
    Good luck!

    It may not seem like much now, but that snowball will roll downhill at a rate faster than you can predict. Keep it up! 🙂

    Best wishes.
