Dividend Income Update – September 2015

I’ve completed 150 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 September. They are now pouring into my account 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 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:

Avista Corp. (AVA) : $6.60
Bank of America (BAC): $2.50
BHP Billiton plc (BBL): $99.20
BP plc (BP): $18.00
Care Capital Properties Inc. (CCP): $1.14
ConocoPhillips (COP): $11.10
Chevron Corp. (CVX): $26.75
Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (DLR): $42.50
Emerson Electric (EMR): $2.35
Gilead Sciences (GILD): $2.15
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ): $7.50
Main Street Capital Corp. (MAIN): $5.25
New Mountain Finance Corp. (NMFC): $10.20
National Oilwell Varco, Inc. (NOV): $4.60

Ventas Inc. (VTR): $14.60
Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC): $3.75
Exxon Mobil (XOM): $3.65

Total passive dividend income for September: $344.48. So far, I’ve received $696.50 as passive dividend income and ahead of target. I revised my target upwards to $1500 in Goals.

Instead of getting a single salary once a month, I got paid by 23 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 September?
