Dividend Income Update – June 2017

I’ve completed 780 days of freedom race and it has been awesome with great support of DGI bloggers. I’m truly blessed to be posting it from a 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 figure of $1500 in passive income. My spring cleanup of portfolio has started to take full brunt from this month. Still, I’m super excited to write about my passive dividend checks that I received in month of June. They pour into my account without lifting a finger. So far, 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. 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:

Bank of America (BAC): $9.37
BP plc (BP): $192.00
Chatham Lodging Trust (CLDT): $77.00
EPR Properties (EPR): $34.00
Eaton Vance Fund (EXG): $38.00
Main Street Capital Corp. (MAIN): $253.00

Vector Group Ltd. (VGR): $280.00
Ventas Inc. (VTR): $100.75

Total passive dividend income for June: $1609.43

Instead of getting a single salary once a month, I got paid by above 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 several of above mentioned stocks.
