Dividend Income Update – December 2017

I’ve completed 960 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, though, it was less than last monthI’m excited to write about my passive dividend checks that I received in month of December. They pour into my account without lifting a finger. So far, I’ve got 36 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:

BP plc (BP): $210
Chatham Lodging Trust (CLDT): $77
EPR Properties (EPR): $34
Eaton Vance Fund (EXG): $38
Main Street Capital Corp. (MAIN): $232.5
New Mountain Fin Corp. (NMFC): $238
Realty Income Corp. (O): $42.4
Royal Dutch Shell, Inc. (RDS B): $282
Southern Company (SO): $58
STAG Industrials, Inc. (STAG): $58.75
Target Corp. (TGT): $31
Vector Group Ltd. (VGR): $320

Total passive dividend income for December: $1621.65

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.

How was your passive dividend income in the month of December?

  1. Congrats on another awesome month. I did some back-of-the-envelope calculation to figure out your yield. Its around 7.705%. That’s the highest I have seen in DGI community :-). Please watch out for the interest rate hikes.
