October 2018, 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.

Month review

October was a wild ride. The market dropped a little bit, and gave some nice buying opportunities. Unfortunately I hadn’t enough money to enjoy this opportunity. I only pulled my buy trigger once. What gave me a smile, was the expected dividend increase. Realty Income raised its dividend with 0.20%.



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 € 70.69 ($ 80.01) in passive income.

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

Coca Cola (KO) € 23.43
Franklin Resources (BEN) € 8.63
General Electric (GE) € 5.41
Realty Income (O) € 19.87
South32 LTD (SOUHY) € 3.02
Vereit (VER) € 10.33


YoY Increase

That makes a total of € 70.69, this is a 17.44% increase from last years October. Again a nice increase! This means that my snowball is slowly getting momentum.

In 2018 I received a total in passive income of € 2,768.42


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 €103,779 which is an increase of 0.77% over last month (€102,985).  I donated € 400 of fresh capital to my Vrijheid Fonds and
€ 371 for my mutual Fund for my “Safe-haven-sleep-well”part of my Vrijheid Fonds.



This month I purchased 56 stocks of Franklin Resources. For my analysis Pollie-style see my post on BEN. For more information about my new buy, see here.

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.

    Hi Pollie,

    Nice YoY growth! Just like for you, October is also one of our weakest months in terms of dividend income. May I ask how you plan on replacing GE’s dividend, now that they’ve cut their dividend to 1 US-Cent per share?

    Hey Pollie,

    Raking in over 17% in YOY growth is amazing. Your snowball of passive dividend income is picking up incredible steam!

    I love the graph showing the increases… you’re consistently rising at a phenomenal rate. Keep it up!

    Take care,
