How high my passive income this month?
Yes, it’s time to write my favorite post. A post about my favorite topic, dividends! I hope this post will inspire others out there to start saving and investing. Okay lets see how much passive income I have received in October.
And lets see what kind a month it was for my Vrijheid Fonds. This month I had just one dividend increase. Realty Income raised its dividend with 0.30%. It is a small one, but I love it anyway.
Furthermore this month I received dividend for the very first time from South32 Ltd (SOUHY). This is the company that originated from splitting up BHP Billiton. I just have 12 share of SOUHY, so I only got a little dividend.
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 € 58.21 ($ 64.01) in passive income.
If we take a closer look, the dividend was coming from:
Coca Cola (KO) € 21.64
FranklinResources (BEN) €6,96
General Electric (GE) € 10.67
Realty Income (O) € 7.80
South32 LTD (SOUHY) € 0.51
Vereit (VER) € 10.63
That makes a total of € 58.21, this is a 18.8% increase from last years October. Again a nice increase!. This means that my snowball is slowly getting momentum.

If we take a look at my Vrijheid Fonds (Freedom Fund), we can see that the value is slightly higher than last month. My total portfolio value at the end of October is €72,564 which is a small decrease of 0.53% over last month (€72,952). This decrease is due to lower share prices all around.
I again donated € 400 of fresh capital to my Vrijheid Fonds and € 100 for my mutual Fund 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.
