APRIL 2016 Dividends


Thanks for reading my dividend journal. When I started this blog I really didn't think anyone would care (I was doing it to track my progress) but I've got thousands of readers per month. Thank you all for visiting and commenting!

I received $1716.96 in dividends in April.

$1230 of that was in my taxable account and the rest in my registered accounts. That's $1230 that I'll need to declare on my annual taxes. It's also a good chuck of change that can cover many of my everyday needs, although with a growing family those needs are only increasing.

The cash is very much rolling at a quick pace. The cash in my TFSA and RRSP is accumulating quickly and I should be able to make a new purchase from dividends alone. That’s pretty remarkable.

Financial Independence Fund:

The total value of my Financial Independence Fund at the end of April was: $395,216

Slight increase from last month’s portfolio value of $393,509. Nearing the $400K range. I wouldn't mind if markets would retreat. If the markets retreat, I have cash ready to pounce.

Annual dividend income is at $16,544.96 or an average of $1378.74 per month.

Purchases made in April:

The total amount of new purchases made this past month: $5046

Regular Account:

Canadian Utilities (45 shares @ $35.24 = $1586)
Shaw Communications (59 shares @ $23.68 = $1402)
Shaw Communications (45 shares @ $23.21 = $1050)
Canadian National Railway (13 shares @ $77.14 = $1008)

March 2016 Dividends


I received $1333.48 in dividends in March. It just keep on rolling.

Annual dividend income is now $16,353 or about $1362 per month. this $1362 is the total amount in all of my accounts. I'm not going to be using my TFSA or RRSP for many decades from now. 
 

Financial Independence Fund:

The total value of my Financial Independence Fund at the end of December was: $393,509

This is a month-to-month increase from $393,509 compared to last month at $380,428

I am getting mighty close to the $400K mark. I didn't expect my portfolio to jump up so quickly considering where the markets were in early January. As such, I'm sitting on cash waiting for the markets to slow down. Stocks are overpriced and I'm not in the mood for buying.

I did pick up a couple of shares of WSP Global and Shaw in March. Other than that, I don't see many other compelling purchases coming up. Perhaps initiating a small position in CP or adding to my XPF etf. Perhaps adding a bit to Royal Bank.

Purchases made in March:

The total amount of new purchases made this past month: $2770


Regular taxable account: $2770

         Shaw Communications (55 shares @ $23.41 per share = $1293)
         WSP Global (40 shares @ $36.80 per share = $1477)
