November 2018, Month review of my Vrijheid Fonds

My month review of my Vrijheid Fonds

How high my passive income this month? It is time to take a look at the numbers.

The year 2018 is almost behind us; November is already in the books. It has been and still is a very busy time. I hardly had any time left to write a post. But this is fun, I love Spreadsheet-day, and I love to add up all the dividends that I received and write my favorite post. 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

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.



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 € 276.13 ($ 312.50) in passive income.

If we take a closer look, the dividend was coming from:
AT&T (T) € 37.55
Omega Healthcare Investment (OHI) € 87.89
Procter & Gamble (PG) € 20.46
Realty Income (O) € 26.36
Mutual Fund € 103.77

As I already wrote in mu month review of March, NN Euro Obligatie Fonds (Euro Bond Fund) doesn’t issue a quarterly dividend from 2018 onwards. From this year on, the dividend payment will take place only once a year. From now on, the dividend will be paid in July. For more information, take a look at my post on NN Euro Obligatie Fonds. Last year in November I received a total dividend of €56.68 from this mutual Fund.



YoY increase

That makes a total of € 276.13, this is a 2.25% increase from last years November. And if I take the dividend of NN Euro Obligatie Fonds out of the equation, my Vrijheid Fonds had an increase of 29.42% from last years November.

Compound interest at work!  Wow this feels good!

In 2018 I received a total in passive income of € 3,044.34


Vrijheid Fonds

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.

My total portfolio value at the end of November is €107,422 which is an increase of 3.51% over last month (€ 103,779).  I again donated € 400 of fresh capital to my Vrijheid Fonds and I bought € 219 worth of mutual Funds for my “Safe-haven-sleep-well” part of my Vrijheid Fonds.

I never had this much money in my Vrijheid Fonds. It is a record-breaking month! Yeah! Party time.



This month I sold all my shares in General Electric after they decimated their dividend. For more information about their latest dividend cut, read my post General Electric decimated its dividend.

And if you want to know more about my recent sell, read my post Recent Sell – General Electric.

All in all I can look back at a good month in which I made a nice step in my journey. How was your month? Did you have a record-breaking month? 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 numbers Pollie! Really inspiring. On my blog I frequently get very doubtfull reactions on if the numbers are realistic etc but this (and other blogs) prove this investment method really works.

    My November was quite a slow month regarding dividends. December will compensate for that 🙂

    Nice work Pollie, very solid month and we share three companies that paid in November. Even with the mutual fund change, you still had positive growth and excluding that from the equation it is really nice!

    I had a good month with just crossing over the $500 mark for November, and looking forward to a great December due to my index funds that will pay out.
