How high my passive income this month? It is time to take a look at the numbers.
Wow times flies. November is already gone. And it is time to write a post, a post about my favorite topic, dividends! I hope this post will 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.
Okay lets see how much passive income I have received in November just by doing nothing ;-). And what kind a month it was for my Vrijheid Fonds. I had just one dividend increase (number 19th for my Vrijheid Fonds). Omega Healthcare Investment raised its dividend with 1.7% (their 4th raise in 2016!). All raises are 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 € 216.41 ($ 230.15) in passive income.
If we take a closer look, the dividend was coming from:
AT&T (T) € 23.02
Omega Healthcare Investment (OHI) € 70.20
Procter & Gamble (PG) € 20.33
Realty Income (O) € 8.07
Mutual Fund € 94.79
That makes a total of € 216.41, this is a 140% increase from last years November. This increase was mainly due to the new buys I made this year, OHI and my Mutual Funds (see my post on my mutual funds). Compound interest at work! Wow this feels good!

If we take a look at my Vrijheid Fonds (Freedom Fund), we can see that the value is higher than last month. November was a great month. The stock prices gained momentum and kept rising. A huge part of this positive result came after the election of Trump as president-elect.
My total portfolio value at the end of November is $74.223, which is an increase of 2.3% over last month (€ 72,564). 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.
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.
