Financial Independence - July 2015 update -

Next month should be better as I will get my annual dividends for Rosneft and Gazprom – combined just under 3,000 USD after taxes. On in all investor should me bracing themselves for low annual growth and dividends 1.5-3% a year. Some companies could deliver more but this would be too much exposure to overall portfolio.
It is a bumpy ride but currently I am not intensely stressed about it. Portfolio will generate about ~ 7,000 USD in dividends and will hardly meet any my needs in the short term.   It is increasingly looks like that I need to focus on financial independence at 65 like majority of the folks.
