Once in a month I will publish a Passive Income Report. This will show you what changes happened in my portfolio and how much passive income I collected during the month. This month I received 229,2 € in passive income, which is a 108 % increase compared to last December.
Let’s take a look where did that money came from!
- Enbridge Inc. (ENB) – 52,3 €
- Exxon (XOM): 12,3 €
- Fortis Inc. (FTS): 31,2 €
- Johnson and Johnson (JNJ): 15,8 €
- Microsoft (MSFT): 10,1 €
- Mintos (P2P loans): 27,5 €
- Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A): 36,8 €
- Realty Income Corporation (O): 12,2 €
- Target (TGT): 31,0 €
To keep things as simple as possible, I have converted all currencies to Euros.
In 2018 I received 2 411 € in passive income. This exceeded my annual goal (2 000 €) by 20 %, so I have to be really pleased with the results.
If you are interested to read more about my passive income history, you can access older reports for more details.
Four companies in my portfolio announced dividend increases in December:
- AT&T (T): +2,0 %
- Enbridge Inc. (ENB): +10,0 %
- Realty Inc. (O): +0,2 %
- W.P.Carey (WPC): +0,5 %
I am always thrilled to see dividend increases as they boost my passive income without investing any extra money! These raises increase my projected annual income by 24,1 €, even though three of these dividend increases were really small.
I did not make any transactions during the month. I have been saving some cash and hopefully I can make some new purchases in January!
My portfolio dropped about 6 % in December and stock market is still really volatile as everyone seems to expect a huge market crash. On the other hand, my passive income doubled from the last year and a few companies also announced dividend increases. Hopefully the stock prices don’t rally before I can make some new purchases.
Thanks for reading!
