AUGUST 2016 Dividends

 I received $1121.38 in dividends in August. This is a $50 increase from the previous quarter.

As for new purchases this month. They were all in my registered account. I am finding there be a very few compelling purchases and I continue to sit with cash at hand. Nonetheless, I found Manulife to be fairly cheap purchase and initiated a new position. PowerCorp also fell below my initial purchase price so I added a small amount, I don’t think I’ll be adding much more to PowerCorp or PowerFinancial. I also made small additions to Telus and SunLife but definitely didn’t average down on these two. There’s not much out there that’s cheap.

Innvest Reit in my TFSA got bought out by another company. I had initially purchased Innvest Reit in 2012 for a total of $759. These shares were acquired/sold in August for $1233 for a capital gain of $474 or a gain of 62%. I also collected dividends for 3-4 years or about $250 in dividends. So I nearly doubled my money on a very small position. Not bad. Time in the market proved effective.

Going-Forward yearly dividend income:

If I were to stop buying stocks today, the income I would receive on a yearly basis is: $17,497.42 (or $1458.11 per month).

Financial Independence Fund:

The total value of my Financial Independence Fund at the end of August was: $449,841

This is a month-to-month increase from $445,386 last month.



Purchases made in AUGUST:

The total amount of new purchases made this past month: $7255

Manulife (100 shares @ $17.79 = $1784)

JULY 2016 Dividends

JULY 2016 Dividends

I received 1775 in dividends in July.

$1258 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. $1258 is essentially a new purchase.  

Financial Independence Fund:

The total value of my Financial Independence Fund at the end of July was: $445,386

July saw a huge increase from June’s portfolio value of $423,812. That’s an increase of about $21,500 in one month alone, keep in mind that purchases factored in about $10K of that and dividends added nearly another $2K, the other $8-9K was the markets increasing in value.

In future months I could also easily witness a decrease of $21,500 in a single month. You never know. Right now I’m focused on building the portfolio and adding to growth and seeing those dividends increase.

Annual dividend income is at $17,268 or an average per year or $1439.02 per month. Is that not awesome? I’m only $7732 away from my initial goal of $25K per year set back in 2012.

Purchases made in July:

The total amount of new purchases made this past month: $10,216

I’ve added a good amount of capital to my RRSP and a some contributions into my regular account. Mostly purchasing blue chips and some reits.

Regular Account:            $4830

TD Bank                           (51 shares @ $54.88/share =          $2809)
BTB Reit                            (230 shares @ $4.47/share =          $1034)
Telus                                    (22 shares @ $43.42/share =         $960)

RRSP:                           $5386

Walt Disney                   (15 shares @ $99.40/share =         $1496 USD)
