Recent Stock Purchase I – February 2017

I added positions in 1 existing company in fourth week of February. 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, although, my pace is going to moderate due to stock market getting over-valued, making it difficult to find good values.

Below is the company where I put my capital on towards my race for earning $3000 per month in 3000 days. Last month, I completed 63days of my freedom race and it was fantastic to have come close to $2000 in passive income. Without further ado:

1) HCP, Inc. (HCP): 10 positions at $31.57 on 2/22

Due to addition of new companies over last several months and splits of HCPYUM and sale of APPL, total count is close to a century mark in my portfolio. However, I’ll be making sale of some companies this year and total count may be down.

Full Disclosure: Long on above mentioned stocks.

Dividend Income Update – January 2017

I’ve completed 630 days of freedom race and it has been awesome so far. 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 came close to a milestone figure of $2000 in passive income, but did not quite hit it this month. I’m super excited to write about my passive dividend checks that I received in month of Jan. They come into my account like a clockwork without lifting any fingers. So far, I’ve got 97 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 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:

Total passive dividend income for Jan: $1992.16.

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!

How did your passive dividend income come along in first month of the year: January?
