MAY 2016 Dividends


I received $1074.77 in dividends in February. This is actually a dividend drop from the previous quarter due to some dividend stocks cutting their dividends, ouch! My dividends are supposed to grow... That's the risk of investing in oil and commodities. 

Nonetheless, I am sticking on track and trying to choose more closely solid blue chip stocks that have a low likelihood of reducing dividends going forward.Wish me luck.

As for new purchases this month. One was in my TFSA and it was made entirely from dividends. I purchased 21 shares of Boardwalk entirely from 4-5 months of dividends. That was fun.

I added to Wells Fargo in my RRSP.

I also added to CN Rail, Power Corp and Power Financial in my regular account.


Going-Forward yearly dividend income:

If I were to stop buying stocks today, the income I would receive on a yearly basis is: $16,805 (or $1400.42 per month).

Financial Independence Fund:

The total value of my Financial Independence Fund at the end of February was: $411,676

This is a month-to-month decrease from $411,676 compared to last month to $395,216.
My new purchases contributed to that increase and the other increase is attributed to the market hitting new highs.


Purchases made in MAY:

The total amount of new purchases made this past month: $7306

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)
