Dividend Income Update – October 2015

I’ve completed 180 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 always excited to write about my passive dividend checks that I received last month of October. They are now pouring into my account without me lifting any fingers. So far, I’ve got 53 fantastic companies in my growing Portfolio, a new name: POT was added last week.

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:

Baxter Intl. Inc. (BAX) : $1.15
Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS): $10.66
Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS): $2.40
General Electric (GE): $6.90
Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. (GMCR): $2.88
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK): $31.73
Main Street Capital Corp. (MAIN): $7.20
Altria Group, Inc. (MO): $28.25
Realty Income Corp. (O): $19.05
Phillip Morris Intl., Inc. (PM): $76.50

Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD): $3.88
U.S. Bancorp (USB): $3.83
W.P. Carey, Inc. (WPC): $66.85

Total passive dividend income for September: $323.26. So far I’ve received $1,019.76  as passive dividend income and ahead of target. My new target this year is set to $1500 in Goals.

Instead of getting a single salary once a month, I got paid by 17 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 above mentioned stocks.

How did your passive dividend income come along in October?
