October 2017, Month review of my Vrijheid Fonds

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 🙂

Month review


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


YoY Increase

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.

Vrijheid Fonds

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.




This month I purchased 40 stocks of AT&T. For my analysis Pollie-style see my post on AT&T. For more information about my new buy, see here

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.

      Because I consider Realty Income as a foundation stock, I didn’t do a complete Polly-style analysis. I only did a quick scan. I will publish the post this afternoon
