I’ve completed 360 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.
Wow. I crossed a milestone figure of $750 in passive income for second time this year. I’m super excited to write about my passive dividend checks that I received in month of April. They are now pouring into my account without doing any work. So far, I’ve got 89 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:
Baxter Intl. Inc. (BAX) : $1.15
Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS): $28.49
Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS): $2.65
General Electric (GE): $11.50
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK): $153.32
The Kraft Heinz Co. (KHC): $8.63
Main Street Capital Corp. (MAIN): $30.60
Altria Group, Inc. (MO): $62.15
Merk & Co. Inc. (MRK): $9.20
Realty Income Corp. (O): $19.90
Phillip Morris Intl., Inc. (PM): $127.50
PennantPark Investment (PNNT): $42.00
Reynolds American Inc. (RAI): $25.20
STAG Industrials, Inc. (STAG): $14.48
Starwood Property Trust, Inc.(STWD): $76.80
U.S. Bancorp (USB): $6.38
W.P. Carey, Inc. (WPC): $146.13
Total passive dividend income for April: $766.08. Note: normally, JPM and TD dividends show up on April 30th but this quarter, it was received on May 2nd due to weekend. I’ve adjusted the amount for this month and will report it in May.
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 April?
