NOVEMBER 2016 Dividends

I received $1305.24 in dividends in November. This is a $185 increase from the previous quarter.

As for new purchases this month.

I made a one-time investment in a green bond (solar power) with SolarShare of $5,000. It cost an additional $40 to become a member of the SolarShare co-op. This $5,000 will provide me with an annual income of $250 (or 5%) paid bi-annually. At the end of the five-year term I should receive my capital back.

This purchase of SolarShare was made outside of my current accounts and is a good addition to my green portfolio and a good tool to diversify my investments.

As for my recent XEC etf (international countries ETF), I reinvested my dividends to add to this position. In a way this XEC position is entirely financed from dividends. Questrade also doesn’t charge fees for the purchase of ETF’s so I don’t really care whether my purchase is small or large.

I also sold my position in Canadian Natural Resources. I originally purchased 40 shares for $1125 and sold it in november for $1746, a gain of $621 or 55% gain, excluding the dividends I received over several years. I am slowly trying to divest out of fossil fuels and happy to do so while making a profit. I used the entire proceeds to purchase 163 shares of Algonquin Power (renewable sector). I also just sold Exxon mobile in my RRSP which I will report in December. 

As I say - out with the old (fossil fuels) and in with the new (renewables).

Going-Forward yearly dividend income:

If I were to stop buying stocks today, the income I would receive on a yearly basis is: $18,068 (or $1505.68 per month). $18K is a big number and $1500 per month on average is great.

Financial Independence Fund:

The total value of my Financial Independence Fund at the end of November was: $462,044

This is a month-to-month increase from $446,800 last month.



Purchases made in NOVEMBER:

The total amount of new purchases made this past month: $8749 - $1745 (sale) = $7004

Regular taxable account:

         Algonquin Power         (163 shares @ $10.65/share = $1741)
         Alterra Power         (300 shares @ $5.00/share = $1506)
         Telus                           (35 shares @ $42.41/share = $1489)
Algonquin Power         (100 shares @ $10.69/share = $1074)
BTB Reit                   (240 shares @ $4.40/share = $1062)
Boralex                  (60 shares @ $17.05/share = $1028)
         XEC Etf                  (23 shares @ $23.32/share = $536)
         XEC Etf                  (14 shares @ $22.36/share = $313)

Sales: Canadian Natural Resources (sold 40 shares @ $43.76 = $1745)

WesternOne did a 1:30 split. Crap.

OCTOBER 2016 Dividends



I received $1767.62 in dividends in October.

$1280.92 of that was in my taxable account and the rest in my registered accounts.

The cash is rolling in so quickly that I can’t keep up. $1280 is essentially enough to make a new purchase. 

Andrew Peller did a 3 for 1 stock split this month. I’ve pretty much tripled my investment since I originally purchased this stock a few years ago for just over $10-$11 per share and the stock is now worth that after the stock split. Also enjoying some decent quarterly dividends. I'm going to hold onto this position.

Financial Independence Fund:

The total value of my Financial Independence Fund at the end of October was: $446,800

This is a decrease from last month’s fund value of $449,020. My portfolio fell about $2K and that despite adding $3.5K in new purchases. 

The Fund has been stuck in the $450K area for a few months now.

Annual dividend income is at $17,790 or an average per year or $1482.51 per month.

Purchases made in October:

The total amount of new purchases made this past month: $3518

I added to my position in Algonquin Power because I like their focus on renewable energy and think they have long term growth ahead. I also had about $1400 in USD so I added to JNJ, not very cheap but I’m holding for the long term. I want JNJ to be a sizeable position.

I also reinvested some dividends into a new position. XEC.TO is an emerging markets ETF. This is my first emerging markets ETF that allows me to diversify my portfolio into international markets. Focus on asia, south America, etc. I’m going to continue adding dividends that I receive into XEC until I build a sizeable position.

Regular Account:            $3518

Algonquin Power                           (125 shares @ $11.68/share = $1465)
Johnson & Johnson                        (12 shares @ $115.37/share = $1389 USD)
XEC (Emerging markets etf)         (29 shares @ $22.89/share = $664)
