My monthly review of my Vrijheid Fonds. How high was my passive income last 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. It was a good month for my Vrijheid Fonds. I had two dividend increases. Realty Income raised its dividend with 0.20% and South32 Ltd ADR by 177,8%. I have only 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 € 60.19 ($ 70.13) in passive income.
If we take a closer look, the dividend was coming from:
Coca Cola (KO) € 21.59
Franklin Resources (BEN) € 7.30
General Electric (GE) € 10.51
Realty Income (O) € 7.73
South32 LTD (SOUHY) € 3.03
Vereit (VER) € 10.03
That makes a total of € 60.19, this is a 3.4% increase from last years October. Again a nice increase! This means that my snowball is slowly getting momentum.
For an update of my Dividend Income click the hyperlink. In 2017 I received a total in passive income of € 2,383.29
If we take a look at my Vrijheid Fonds (Freedom Fund), we can see that the value is higher than last month. My total portfolio value at the end of October is €88,335 which is an increase of 4.02% over last month (€84,942). I donated € 1900 of fresh capital to my Vrijheid Fonds and € 100 for my mutual Fund for my “Safe-haven-sleep-well” part of my Vrijheid Fonds.
I also bought 35 stocks of Realty Income. More information about this new buy will be posted shortly. (I haven’t found the time to write it 😉 )
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.
