Recent Stock Purchase III – June 2016

I added a new company in Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. (PEB) from my watch list and positions in 3 existing companies in fourth week of June. I plan to keep adding these dividend growth stocks to grow my passive dividend income to a point where all my expenses are covered by passive income generated by them.

Below are the companies where I put my capital on towards my race for earning $3000 per month in 3000 days. Last month, I completed 390 days of my freedom race and it was nice to have crossed $1000 in passive income for the first time. Without further ado:

1) Nike, Inc (NKE): 5 positions at $55.00 on 6/22
2) Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. (PEB): 10 positions at $27.75 on 6/20
3) Telus Corp. (TU): 10 positions at $32.45 on 6/22
4) Toronto-Dominion Bank. (TD): 10 positions at $43.97 on 6/22

Due to addition of new companies over last several weeks, total number went up to 94 wonderful companies in my portfolio. Following companies are in my watch-list over coming weeks and months: Modelez Intl., Inc. (MDLZ) and Spectra Energy (SE).

Full Disclosure: Long on above mentioned stocks except MDLZ, SE.

Dividend Income Update – May 2016

I’ve completed 390 days of freedom race and it has been awesome with all the support. 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.

Wow. I finally crossed a milestone figure of $1000 in passive income for the first time ever, holly smoking! I’m super excited to write about my passive dividends received in month of May. They flowed into my account even without me lifting any fingers. So far, I’ve got 92 fantastic companies in my Portfolio. Last month, I also celebrated my first Blogoversary. Time passes fast! Grateful to have such a committed readership and the great support of all DGI bloggers.

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, like my journey just one year back. 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:

Total passive dividend income for May: $1,380.78.

Instead of getting a single salary once a month, I got paid by above 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 May?
