Dividend Income Update – June 2016

I’ve completed 420 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.

Wow. I again crossed magic figure of $1000 in passive income, almost close to $1300. I’m super excited to write about my passive dividend checks that I received in month of June. They are now pouring into my account without lifting a finger. So far, I’ve got 94 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:

Archer Daniels Midland Co. (ADM): $15.00
Aflac Inc. (AFL): $4.10
Amgen Inc. (AMGN): $5.00
Avista Corp. (AVA) : $10.28

Total passive dividend income for June: $1279.18. So far this year, I’ve received $4155.21  in passive dividend income.

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 above mentioned stocks.

    • Hi DP,

      Appreciate the like. Definitely, consistency is the name of the game and we need to be at it, put little here and a little there and soon, it becomes a stream that keeps flowing. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  1. Thanks for sharing R2R.
    You’re doing awesome!
    That is a list of wonderful companies and you are killing it! Keep it up and don’t stop. We’re riding this journey with you and I’m gonna rip it up with you.
    Cheers bro.

    • Hi DH,

      Appreciate the kind words. You are absolutely killing over there, and congrats on awesome income. Yeah, we are fellow companions who are riding on this horse together to gallop towards the cherished land of FI. Thanks for stopping as always!

  2. Keep at it dude! Reports are consistently going higher and higher! What’s your target monthly income? Or are you gonna go right to 3000 days?

    • Hi MrSLM,

      That’s good thing if the chart keeps going in up direction 🙂 My target is $3K in 3K days and if it could happen earlier, so much better. Capital is becoming less and less available and so, I expect to slow down. Its a journey that needs to be traveled every day consistently, my friend. Good luck in your journey. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi TiMB,

      Appreciate the like, thank you. I want to keep chugging along and we’ll see when I hit $3K, that will be moment to savior and may be take out a bazooka 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi IH,

      Appreciate following the journey. Its amazing to see how the compounding engine kicks in after a while. You are killing over there as well, keep up the good work, my friend. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  3. hey 🙂
    awesome job!
    If you receive almost 1300 dollars in one month, you will reach that goal so much faster than you think 😉

    420 days are gone, there is so much time left.
    If you will accumulate that assets like you have done it in the past, maybe you can reach 4k or 5k dividends per month in 3000 days 😉

    keep it up!

    • Hi ED,

      Appreciate the kind words. Wish it was that easy 🙂 I’ll keep working hard to achieve my goal of $3K in 3K days: $3K will provide me flexibility to consider leaving rat race and be financially independent. At that point, I’d be able to think about other pursuits in life that you love. However, I know this is a challenging goal for myself. Best of luck in your journey. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
