Dividend Income Update – February 2017

I’ve completed 660 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 less than last month. I’m excited to write about my passive dividends received in month of Feb. as they flowed into my account even without me lifting any fingers. So far, I’ve got 93 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): $32.00
Abbott Laboratories (ABT): $21.20
AES Corp. (AES): $15.00
American Express (AXP): $1.60
Caterpillar Inc. (CAT): $23.10
Chatham Lodging Trust (CLDT): $60.50
CVS Health Corp. (CVS): $10.00
EPR Properties (EPR): $34.00
Eaton-Vance In. (EXG): $24.39
General Dynamics Inc. (GD): $3.80
Gov. Properties Income Trust (GOV): $32.25
Hospital Properties Trust (HPT): $91.80
Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI): $75.00
Main Street Capital Corp. (MAIN): $83.25
Realty Income Corp. (O): $32.62
Omega Healthcare Inv., Inc. (OHI): $310.00
ONEOK Inc. (OKE): $307.50
Proctor & Gamble Company (PG): $33.47
Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan (POT): $20.00
Royal Bank of Canada (RY) : $19.02
Starbucks Inc. (SBUX): $2.50
Sr. Housing Properties Trust (SNH): $195.00
STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG): $46.67
AT&T, Inc. (T): $156.80
Verizon Communications. Inc. (VZ): $155.93

Total passive income for Feb: $1,787.40.

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 February?

  1. Serious firepower coming in monthly, that should allow you to get to get call much faster. I’m still on the ~$100s for monthly dividend income, but not worried, its a slow process that I will eventually get there if I maintain the focus.

    • Hi D4F,

      I’m sure that your 100’s will be few hundreds and soon, it will be much larger. Could not agree more with you: its a slow process and I’ve been at it many years earlier. Good luck in your journey. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  2. It really is a slow process but it is happening very fast for you. You definitely should be happy with your progress so far. You are well on your way to $3000 a month for sure. Well done.

    • Hi BHL,

      There is always a lot of hard work involved behind building a portfolio and I’ve working on it since long. I’m glad to made progress, however, my goal remains $3K in 3K and there are ways to go 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  3. Another amazing total for a month of passive income generated. I say it every month but you have one of the broadest lists of dividend paying stocks out there. Every month your list is nice and long and most importantly, diversified. Keep this crazy pace going!

    • Hi DH,

      Appreciate the kind words. It is said that only free lunch out there is diversification. I know that Warren’s majority of portfolio is concentrated in few companies, however, I’m not him and so, we will take free lunch 🙂 Thanks for stopping by as always and commenting.

    • Hi PID,

      Thank you. I’m working very hard to achieve my goal of $3K and at that point, I’ll consider myself FI. Its still long ways to go. I’m hoping to crack $2K barrier next month, we will see if it happens. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi IH,

      Yeah, I’m also excited to see the March numbers: it will be a small size champagne bottle uncorked if that happens, not yet big one: that’s reserved for $3K 🙂 Your option income is huge there as well, congrats to you on such a stupendous results. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi DD,

      In total agreement with you: slow and steady is absolutely the winner. I know market is at crazy high levels, may take some breather, however, we just got to be at it. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi Mark,

      I’m glad that my post was inspirational to you and I’m sure for other readers as well. Due to number of companies, I ran into technical issues in updating it and will fix in spare time. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  4. I don’t know what more to say than….HOLY COW! Amazing stuff here R2R. Congrats on the amazing month. Keep on inspiring us to push ourselves and increase our dividend income/financial position as much as possible. Can’t wait to see what March has in store for you too.

  6. Hi R2R! Outstanding performance!

    I´m a brazilain investor and now I´m starting to invest abroad. I´m looking for good exemples like you to learn more about how to increase the monthly amount of dividends. In fact I´m not very interesting in receive every month big amount of money because my retirement will coma only in 12 years, so I´m investing for a long run but as I want to make some diversification in my portfolio, it´s needed to buy some stocks also. Now I´m looking for some ETF also.

    I´ll read all your site but, 3k it´s enough for your retirement?

    My website is in Portuguese but if you want to visit to see some numbers, be my guest.
