Dividend Income Update – November 2015

I’ve completed 210 days of freedom race and it has been awesome with the great support of fellow 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 in month of November. They are now pouring into my bank without me lifting any fingers. It crossed a nice figure of $400.00 for the first time. So far, I’ve got 55 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 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) : $5.20
Abbott Laboratories (ABT): $2.40
Gov. Properties Income Trust (GOV): $21.50
HCP, Inc. (HCP): $16.95
Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI): $107.10
Main Street Capital Corp. (MAIN): $7.20
Realty Income Corp. (O): $19.05
Omega Healthcare Inv., Inc. (OHI): $33.60
ONEOK Inc. (OKE): $92.25
Proctor & Gamble Company (PG): $16.57
Sr. Housing Properties Trust (SNH): $39.00
STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG): $5.18
AT&T, Inc. (T): $47.00
Verizon Comm. Inc. (VZ): $28.25

Total passive dividend income for November: $441.25 after 210 days of race. So far, I’ve received $1,467.61 as passive dividend income and ahead of target $840.00. In the month of AugustI revised my target to $1,500.00 for this year: Goals.

Instead of getting a single salary once a month, I got paid by 14 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!

Happy Thanksgiving…

First of all, my thoughts and prayers go out to Paris victims and their families!

Holidays round the corner, we have Thanksgiving day coming next week: Nov 26th and super shopping Black Friday on Nov 27th when most of the retailers open very early, offer promotional sales and their books going into black. It is an eagerly awaited day for lot of folks who are waiting for great deals and represents a beginning of Great Shopping season that lasts till the year end.

Thanksgiving day is celebrated as a national holiday in Canada and United States. It has religious and cultural leanings historically and considered to have association with harvest festival. It is rooted in English traditions dating long back and considered as special blessings from God. Canadian Thanksgiving is traced back to the French settlers who came to New France with the explorers and had feasts at the end of harvest season.

In Germany, it is known as Erntedankest, Japan as Niliname-sai and folks in many other countries also celebrate it. Whatever the reason of celebrating it, I’m grateful to be living in the land where Statue of Liberty stands and thank all the blessings that we have, considering that half of world – close to 3 billion people live on much less.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving Holidays!!
