April 2015 Dividends


I received $1342.91 in dividends in April.

$1087 of that was in my taxable account and the rest in my registered accounts. This is really working out.  

The long-term plan is to use the income generated in the taxable account to pay for my living expenses. One day it will pay for my bills and allow me to work less. For now, I’m simply reinvesting that money and allowing the compounding effect to take place.
           
So far in 2015 I received $4,628.64 in dividends in my registered and non-registered accounts.

What a phenomenal year and it will only get stronger.


Going-Forward yearly dividend income:

If I were to stop buying stocks today, the income I would receive on a yearly basis is: $14,884.30 (or $1240.35 per month).

I'm on track to earning $13-14K for 2015. 

Financial Independence Fund:

The total value of my Financial Independence Fund at the end of April was: $327,335

This is a month-to-month increase from $327,335 compared to last month to $317,498


Purchases made in April:

The total amount of new purchases made this past month: $6603

Regular taxable account:

         XPF etf (72 shares @ $19.20 per share = $1383)
Rogers Communication (30 shares @ $41.73 = $1257)
Rogers Communication (35 shares @ $40.76 = $1432)
Procter and Gamble (15 shares @ $80.09 = $1206 USD)

TFSA:

         Crombie Reit (100 shares @ $13.20 = $1325)

March 2015 Dividends


MARCH 2015 Dividends

I received $1084.15 in dividends in March, 2015.

$684 of that was in my taxable account and the rest in my registered accounts. $684 is taxable income and subject to favorable taxation. Better to be taxed on dividend income then regular income.

The long-term plan is to use the income generated in the taxable account to pay for my living expenses. One day it will pay for my bills and allow me to work less. For now, I’m simply reinvesting that money and allowing the compounding effect to take place.
           
In 2015 I have received a total of $3285.73 in total dividends in my registered and non-registered accounts.

What a great start to the year. $3K per quarter feels great.


Going-Forward yearly dividend income:

If I were to stop buying stocks today, the income I would receive on a yearly basis is: $14,486.12 (or $1207.17 per month).


Financial Independence Fund:

The total value of my Financial Independence Fund at the end of March was: $317,498

This is a very slight month-to-month increase of a few thousands dollars compared to last month of $315,651. Despite earning some dividends and making new purchases, my portfolio didn’t really advance much, it actually went backwards.

If my portfolio goes up or down by 2-3%, that’s almost a $10,000 difference. I’m mostly focused on the dividend income which continues to rise.


Purchases made in March:


The total amount of new purchases made this past month: $11,071

Regular taxable account:

         Philip Morris (20 shares @79.73 = $2028 Canadian)
Johnson & Johnson (15 shares @ $98.99 = $1489 USD)
SNC Lavalin (30 shares @ $39.55 = $1191)
SNC Lavalin (27 shares @ $39.46 = $1070)
SNC Lavalin (68 shares @ $37.43 = $2555)

TFSA:

         NorthWest Health Care Reit (100 shares @ $9.57 = $961)
         Crombie Reit (73 shares @ $13.55 = $994)

RRSP:

            Emerson Electric (11 shares @ $55.83 = $783)
