Dividend Income Update – July 2017

I’ve completed 810 days of freedom race and it has been awesome so far. 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 figure of $1500 in passive income last month. Due to several sales made over last several months, my dividend income will be lowered some. Still, I’m excited to write about my passive dividend checks that I received in month of July. They come into my account like a clockwork without lifting any fingers. 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:

Apollo Inv. Inc. (AINV): $45.00
BCE Inc. (BCE): $169.75
Chatham Lodging Trust (CLDT): $77.00
EPR Properties (EPR): $34.00
Eaton-Vance In. (EXG): $38.00
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK): $147.11
Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc. (HST): $40.00
Main Street Capital Corp. (MAIN): $101.75
Realty Income Corp. (O): $37.01
Occidental Pet. Corp (OXY): $38.00
Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (PEB): $76.00
PennantPark Investment (PNNT): $63.00
STAG Industrials, Inc. (STAG): $58.33
Starwood Property Inc.(STWD): $336.00
Telus Corporation (TU): $113.54
W.P. Carey, Inc. (WPC): $300.00

Total passive dividend income for July: $1674.49.

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 was your passive dividend income in the month of July?

  1. Geez. R2R. Amazing results for a month of July….ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Man do I love reading your posts each month and it really gets me motivated to continue investing and earning those levels of dividend income (one day). Keep on crushing it!


    • Hi Bert,

      Ha! no, it was seriously a tidy amount 🙂 Absolutely, this is one post that keeps me pumping and chugging along. I am sure you are on right track and will be cracking soon. Thanks for stopping as always and commenting.

    • Hi IH,

      Thanks for pointing that out: updated it. Yeah, most of my selling is done, unless, some company in my portfolio gets in trouble and requires me to sell. I think my income has glided down some as compared to few months back and I’m not buying much either due to concerns regarding market valuations. With bull market in 9th year, no one knows how long more it will last. Thanks for stopping by as always and commenting.

  2. You are still on a mega roll even with your recent sales. For a “weak” month like July your four digit total is very impressive. Keep it going, even though I know you want to put more on the sidelines.

    • Hi DH,

      Thank you. No question about that: I’m concerned about inflated market and on sidelines for some time. I’ve considered some companies like TGT, MO, TIS, that have corrected in last few weeks. Thanks for stopping by as always and commenting.

    • Hi DP,

      Thank you for the kind words. It was a good month and would like to stretch towards 2K in near future: that will be awesome. I call it 2nd big step towards my FI; third and final step is of-course 3K 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
