May 2019, Month review of my Vrijheid Fonds

Month review of my Vrijheid Fonds

Time flies when you are having fun. May is already behind us. And it is time to tell how much passive income I have received last month.

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.



In total I received € 312.26 ($ 349.68) in passive income in May. My Vrijheid Fonds had just one dividend increase this month! Procter & Gamble raised its dividend with 4.0%. And I have received my first dividend from AbbV.

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

Bayer AG (BAYN) € 24.74
AbbVie (ABBV) € 20.31
AT&T (T) € 60.00
Omega Healthcare Investments (OHI) € 72.14
Procter & Gamble (PG) € 21.51
Realty Income (O) € 20.58
Mutual Funds € 92.98

That makes a total of € 312.26. This is a 30.37% increase from last years May. This money is now working very hard for me 🙂



For an update of my Dividend Income click the hyperlink. In 2019 I received a total in passive income of € 1,552.89


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 May is € 116,859, which is an increase of 0.36% over last month (€ 116,437). I again donated € 701 of fresh capital to my Vrijheid Fonds and I bought
€ 137.65 worth of mutual Funds for my “Safe-haven-sleep-well” part of my Vrijheid Fonds.



This month added a new position to my Vrijheid Fonds. After my Pollie-Style analysis of NN Group NV, I decided to pull my buy-trigger, I bought 20 shares of NN Group NV. For more information, read my buy post here on NN Group NV.

Again, this month I made a nice step in my journey.

How was your month? Did you receive more dividends than last year and do you have any tips for some good Dividend stocks? I like to hear from you.

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.

    Great update!

    Did you ever consider adding a MLP to your portfolio, like energy transfer or magellan midstream partners? Why yes/no?

      Hallo Beerden,

      I haven’t considered MLP yet. And the reason is that I haven’t found the time to acquire knowledge about this type of investments

    That’s a great performance Pollie! S&P lost 6,6% in May, so your increase in portfolio value with “only” adding EUR 840 of fresh capital is astonishing. I followed suit with your purchase of MMM. I also opened positions in UPS, EMN, TSM, AOS and UNA.
