April 2017, Month review of my Vrijheid Fonds

Another month has passed and it is time to review April.

This is a blog 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.

Month review



In total I received €282.36 ($307.69) in passive income in April. My Vrijheid Fonds had five!!! dividend increases this month! Ahold raised its dividend with 9.60%, Coca Cola with 5.70%, Realty Income with 0.20%, South32LtD with 366,67% and finally Wal-Mart with 2.00%

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

Ahold Delhaize (AD.AS) €201.55
Coca Cola (KO) €23.09
Franklin Resources (BEN) €7.80
General Electric (GE) €11.23
Realty Income (O) €8.23
South32LtD (SOUHY) €1.83
Vereit (VER) €10.73
Wal-Mart (WMT) €17.90

That makes a total of €282.36. This is a 332% increase from last years April. However in 2016 Ahold Delhaize paid its dividend in May. If we adjust this, My Vrijheid Fonds has a 23.7% increase from last years April.

Vrijheid Fonds

If we take a look at my Vrijheid Fonds (Freedom Fund), we can see it was a good month.

My total portfolio value at the end of April is €82,757, which is an increase of 0.0004% over last month (€82,756). I again donated € 400 of fresh capital to my Vrijheid Fonds and I bought € 100 worth of mutual Funds for my “Safe-haven-sleep-well” part of my Vrijheid Fonds.

This month I purchased 34 stocks of Target (TGT). See here

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.

      Thanks for taking the time to write a comment.
      If you keep up the good work, compound interest will do the rest 😉

    Nice going Pollie! Just a pitty that our European companies can’t stick to a nice payment schedule. I had the same “problem” with one of my stocks. It screws up the figures, hehe.

    Well, as long as that’s our biggest problem I guess we don’t really have to worry. Keep it up and nice results!
