Dividend Income Update – August 2015

I’ve completed 120 days of freedom race and it has been awesome with the great support of DGI bloggers. I’m truly blessed to be posting it from the 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’m super excited to write about my passive dividend checks that I received last month of August. They are now pouring into my bank without me lifting any fingers. So far, I’ve got 52 fantastic companies in my growing 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 win 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:

Apple Inc. (AAPL) : $2.60
Gov. Properties Income Trust (GOV): $12.90
HCP, Inc. (HCP): $5.65
Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI): $26.75
Main Street Capital Corp. (MAIN): $1.76
Realty Income Corp. (O): $15.20
Omega Healthcare Inv., Inc. (OHI): $27.50
ONEOK Inc. (OKE): $33.27
Proctor & Gamble Company (PG): $3.31
Sr. Housing Properties Trust (SNH): $9.75
STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG): $3.45
AT&T, Inc. (T): $14.10
Verizon Comm. Inc. (VZ): $16.50

Total passive dividend income for August: $172.94 after 120 days of race. So far, I’ve received $352.02 as passive dividend income and little ahead of target ($30 + $60 + $90 + $120 = $300). I revised my target upwards to $1500 in Goals.

Instead of getting a single salary once a month, I got paid by 13 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 acquiring financial freedom over 3000 days, is what drives me to keep racing and I’m sure readers alike!

Full Disclosure: Long on above mentioned stocks.

How did your passive dividend income come along in August?

Thanks for reading!
