Dividend Income Update – December 2017

I’ve completed 960 days of freedom race and it has been awesome with great support of DGI bloggers. I’m truly blessed to be posting it from a country where Statue of Liberty stands. It stands for freedom and I hope to achieve my own financial freedom in 3000 days when I complete my race.

I crossed figure of $1500 in passive income, though, it was less than last monthI’m excited to write about my passive dividend checks that I received in month of December. They pour into my account without lifting a finger. So far, I’ve got 36 fantastic companies in my Portfolio

I hope that this passive income report provides inspiration to all the readers out there that even when you are starting out fresh, you can still do it. Although, it is a long race: slow and steady, we can win it on our terms and time. Without further ado, here are dividends received:

BP plc (BP): $210
Chatham Lodging Trust (CLDT): $77
EPR Properties (EPR): $34
Eaton Vance Fund (EXG): $38
Main Street Capital Corp. (MAIN): $232.5

Total passive dividend income for December: $1621.65

Instead of getting a single salary once a month, I got paid by above fantastic companies throughout the month, simply by owning a tiny sliver of a slice. Imagine that there are thousands of people hired by those companies and that they are working for you, rather than, you working for them. This feeling of achieving financial freedom over 3000 days, is what drives me to keep racing and I’m sure readers alike!

Full Disclosure: Long on several of above mentioned stocks.

Recent Stock Purchase I – January 2018

I added positions in 2 companies in the first month of new year. After selling many companies over last year, this is my first purchase in a while. Stock market has been at uncomfortably high level, making it difficult to find good values in such an environment.

Below are the companies where I put my capital on towards my race for earning $3000 per month in 3000 days. Last month, I completed 930 days of my freedom race and it was nice to have crossed $1800 in passive income. Below are the companies:

1) BofA Inc. (BAC): 25 positions at $30.12 on 1/08
2) BHP Billiton (BBL): 15 positions at $40.96 on 1/08
3) Altria Inc. (MO): 25 positions at $71.65 on 12/18 (last year)

Total count of companies is 36 in my portfolio and looking forward to add more to the portfolio once there is a decent pullback, which appears to be not happening 🙂
