Dividend Income Update – December 2015

I’ve completed 240 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 December. They are now pouring into my account without me lifting any fingers. So far, I’ve got 65 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) : $9.90
Bank of America (BAC): $2.50
BP plc (BP): $72.00
Care Capital Properties Inc. (CCP): $1.14
ConocoPhillips (COP): $29.60
Chevron Corp. (CVX): $42.80
Emerson Electric (EMR): $11.88
Gilead Sciences (GILD): $2.15
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ): $7.50
Main Street Capital Corp. (MAIN): $26.45
Microsoft Inc. (MSFT): $3.60
New Mountain Finance Corp. (NMFC): $17.00
National Oilwell Varco, Inc. (NOV): $4.60
Realty Income Corp. (O): $19.05
Pfizer Inc. (PFE): $2.80
Royal Dutch Shell, Inc. (RDS B): $84.60

Vector Group Ltd. (VGR): $8.00
Ventas Inc. (VTR): $36.50
Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC): $7.50
Exxon Mobil (XOM): $7.30

Total passive dividend income for December: $429.17. I received $1,896.78 in passive dividend income and meeting target of $1,500.00.

Instead of getting a single salary once a month, I got paid by 22 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 December?
