Dividend Income Update – May 2017

I’ve completed 750 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.

I crossed a figure of $1500 in passive income, though it was less than last month due to many sells made. I’m excited to write about my passive dividends received in month of May as they flowed into my account even without me lifting any fingers. Now, I’ve got 34 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, like my journey just short time 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:

Abbvie Inc. (ABBV): $38.40
AES Corp. (AES): $18.00
Chatham Lodging Trust (CLDT): $77.00
EPR Properties (EPR): $34.00
Eaton-Vance In. (EXG): $38.00
Gov. Properties Income Trust (GOV): $129.00
HCP, Inc. (HCP): $185.00
Hospital Properties Trust (HPT): $117.00
Main Street Capital Corp. (MAIN): $101.75
National Healthcare Inv., Inc (NHI): $95.00
Realty Income Corp. (O): $35.87
Omega Healthcare Inv., Inc. (OHI): $346.50
Sr. Housing Properties Trust (SNH): $195.00
STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG): $58.33
AT&T, Inc. (T): $147.00
Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD): $52.69
Verizon Com. Inc. (VZ): $202.13

Total passive income for May: $1,870.67.

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?
