Portfolio Update (March 2015)

I am currently sitting at the desk of my hotel room during my holidays drafting this post. Many thoughts came to mind while I was doing this. One example of the thoughts was that it feels great to be able to relax in my hotel, enjoying my trip while my money continues work hard for me.

Hope my investments will be able to support me living on passive income while I enjoy my life.

Dividends received from Visa Inc (NYSE: V) and AmerisourceBergen Corp (NYSE: ABC) in the month of March were reinvested using the Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP). The reason why I used DRIP was that I would like to hold the stocks of these companies for a longer period and the usage of DRIP could help me gain better compared to taking the dividends out and put them into a bank.
